Pre-Match Save

If you've ever played Football Manager before, then we guarantee that you have used this old chestnut.

Saving your game before each match you play means that in theory, you can never lose.

Well, you can! But if you do, just quit the game and reload it. If you lose again, do the same thing. If you do it enough times then you're bound to win eventually!

We're not sure how you sleep at night if you do use this technique but hey, each to their own.


Pre-Game Editor

For those who want to edit there game in order to achieve success, there are two main options.

The first is an editor known as the pre-game editor.

Installing the editor is simple, just follow these steps:

  • Open Steam
  • Head to Library, then select Games and then Tools
  • Look for 'Football Manager 2021 Editor
  • Right-click and install

Then you're good to go! The Pre-Game Editor allows you to modify the pre-game database, so make sure you start a new save in order to maximise the full capabilities of the editor!

In-Game Editor

The other option, for those who don't mind splashing a little bit of cash, is to pick up the In-Game Editor via the Steam Store.

This in-game add on will set you back £3.99 but it will allow you to do pretty much anything you want within FM.
