Football Manager 2006 is part of the long running (celebrating 20 years in 2013) football management simulator series by Sports Interactive. Fortunately you don't actually need to know anything about football to to get all the achievements in this, as you can simulate to get almost every achievement. Be warned though, the sim speed is not fast and will require that you check in every now and then to make sure everything is going well. If you choose to play the game as it was intended, be warned that this will take you months to get done, but will still be a long slug either way.

How to set up your teams

The way to get many of the achievements done is to start a league where you are the manager of all or all the best clubs in a league. Do this by adding new human players, then sending them all on holiday. Pick a club that you want to be the one who wins things. Just send this one on holiday. With the other teams, create a tactic that is awful and pick a team with a striker in goal and your worst players all out of position. With these teams make sure you check the boxes to make sure your assistants use the same team and tactics you have picked when available. Once you have all players done, just sim. Make sure you check back every few months to see if anybody has been fired. If they have, retire them and add new users and tactics to any of the top clubs not managed. Turn the autosave off also, so if you get sacked it doesn't save it. Just make sure youb save when you check and are happy with what is going on! We will call this the league method.

If you really need to win a certain game, you can create a new user as the manager of the opposing team and play all your worst players out of position and in a poor formation to pretty much guarantee a win against any team (play a striker in goal, goalies up front, etc). We will call this the game method.

Playthrough

Start an Scottish League 2 league using the league method. There are only 10 teams so you can control all of them. Set your holiday so just before the end of the month the manager of your main club comes back from holiday. There are manager of the month awards but you can only get them if you are not simming over that date. There are achievements for winning Manager of the Month, and one for winning it 10 Times cumulative. If you don't have it in your first season you will get it later.
By the end of this season you will most likely have got 5 Clean Sheets In A Row, 5 Players in Team of The Week, Goal of the Month, 10 Goal Of The Month (again cumulative), Win A Match, 10 Match Winning Streak, 10 Matches Without Losing, Goal of the Season, Clean Sheet, Top Goalscorer In League, Hat Trick, Double Hattrick, Player In Team of the Year, Least Goals Conceded in League and Most Goals Scored In League.
At the end of the season if you win the league you will most likely be awarded Manager of the Year, again you need to be active at the end of the season for this. If you win the league you will achieve Win Promotion.

Rinse and repeat this process, remembering if you get promoted to change the other users to teams in that league. Once you get to the top division and win you will unlock Win Domestic Championship. When in this division, check on your fixture list to see when your cup games are. Using the game method, ensure you win the cup for Win Domestic Cup.

Manage the same club using this method for 5, 10 and 20 seasons to unlock the relative achievements. Please note you will need to be checking regularly to make sure you don't get sacked. After you have the 20 season with one club achievement, sim 10 more to get Play 30 Seasons.
You should also get 5 Manager of the Year Awards in hopefully your 5th season if not just repeat the formula.

Also make sure you come out of holiday just before the end of the year and save.See who wins the European and World player of the year. Reload your save and control the teams the players play for, then you will unlock the relative achievements when they win.

There are achievements for winning numerous cup and league competitions. These are over multiple saves, so keep on using the league method until you get any more wins you need.

Internationals

Start a new game and pick yourself as the manager of one of the top world teams (England, Italy, Germany etc). Just sim and when you qualify you will get Qualify for Int. Championship. Carry on simming until the tournament starts and use the game method to ensure you Win International Championship. Use this method to Qualify for World Cup and Win World Cup. You should get Golden Boot and Player in World Cup Best XI if you use the game method too. You can then go on to Win Conferderations Cup.

Online Achievements

There are a few of these for the quirky amount of 64 Find a boosting partner in the achievement trading thread found here. These are quick and easy to boost using the guide and should not take you more than 1-2 hours.

Mopping Up

If you have any achievements left, you can get them quite simply. There are a few you are likely to not have at this point. You can use the game method to do these.
Here is one you probably won't have. Start a new game in the English Premiership, and choose Chelsea and Man Utd. Have Chelsea bid £30Million for Christiano Ronaldo, and accept the offer with Utd. When the deal goes through you will get Buy A 30 Million Plus Player and Sell A 30 Million Plus Player.

Conclusion

Using the league and game methods this is a relatively easy 1000 but will take a lot of time. You don't have to be there for most of it, but your Xbox will be busy. Have fun!

5 Players In Team Of The Week10
You will need to have 5 players named in a team of the week 
A good performance by your team will result in 5 players being in the team. A 4 or 5 nil win is usually about right. Dont' get alarmed if you win by 4 or 5 goals and only get 3 or 4 players in, because some weeks, the computer teams have really good games as well and edge you out of this one. Will come with time if you build up a strong team.
5 Clean Sheets In A Row10
Your team will need to not concede a goal for 5 league games in a row 
I did this in my first 5 games as Liverpool boss due to their top class defence. As far as I'm aware, they have to be competitive games, so Liverpool is an ideal opportunity to do this at the very start because they have to play the 6 qualifiers for the European Cup against poor opposition.
Manager Of The Month5
You will need to win a Manager Of The Month award to unlock this achievement 
Winning all the league games in the month will more than likely net you this achievement. Some months, you may play less games than other teams and so may not be able to win it so don't be alarmed if you miss out. Just keep on performning well in the league and you will net you this achievement. Be careful though as some leagues don't have manager of the month awards, take the Netherlands for example. Can't get on holiday.
10 Manager Of The Month Awards20
You will need to win Manager Of The Month 10 times to unlock this achievement 
Just simply do the above achievement ten times. Remember, league games are the only games that count. Can't get on holiday.
Manager Of The Year15
You will need to win a Manager Of The Year award to unlock this achievement 
I found when playing through this game a stupid amount of times, that the team who won the league, the manager generally got Manager Of The Year, so simply do that and you shouldn't go wrong. Can't get on holiday.
5 Manager Of The Year Awards35
You will need to win Manager Of The Year 5 times to unlock this achievement 
Complete the above achievement 5 times for this award. 5 league wins should do this. In the same save as well. Can't get on holiday.
Goal Of The Month Award5
One of your players will need to collect a goal of the month award 
A totally random achievement that you can't control the outcome of. Just have some world class midfielders and set them to take long shots (team tactics then individual player tactics). Eventually you will receive this.
10 Goal Of The Month Awards20
Your team will need to collect 10 goal of the month awards 
Just perform the goal of the month 10 times. Hints are above.
10 Matches Without Losing10
Your team will need to play 10 competitive matches in a row without losing 
As the achievement says. This includes all competitive matches, league and cups, both European and domestic, qualifiers count as well. Having problems? Just save before every game and if you lose, reload.
Win A Match2
You will need to win a competitive match to unlock this achievement. 
Simple. Just win your first match, no matter what score, just win.
10 Match Winning Streak15
Your team will need to win 10 competitive matches in a row to unlock this achievement 
Win ten competitive matches in a row. This includes all competitive matches, league and cups, both European and domestic, qualifiers count as well. Will more than likely pick this up if you are to do the treble, if not, just save before every game and if you lose or draw, reload.
5 Seasons At One Club5
You will need to stay at a club for 5 seasons to unlock this achievement 
First of the 3 tough achievements which get progressively harder. You only have to stay in charge of the club for 5 years, but this can be a task if you are not fulfilling the boards and especially the fans requirements. Do that and you should be alright reaching this first milestone at a club. For more details on these, see "20 Seasons At One Club".
10 Seasons At One Club15
You will need to stay at a club for 10 seasons to unlock this achievement 
Now you need to build on the success of the previous achievement but double your time at the club. This is a tough achievement as towards the end on the decade at the club, chances are you will have lost most of your good players through either them not being good enough because of age, or retirement. So I recommend at 5-7 seasons in, you buy a couple of decent teens and slowly work them in to the squad so that the retirement of the star players doesn't hit you too bad.
20 Seasons At One Club25
You will need to stay at a club for 20 seasons to unlock this achievement 

WARNING - ONLY FOR THE TRUE HARDCORE -

First up, let me lay down some of the do's and don'ts...

DO save often over numerous saves, the last thing you want is to get sacked in the 19th season. This way, with numerous saves, if you have saved it when the club and your job status is irrepairable, you can always go back a save or two.

DON'T expect to think you can just go on holiday for long periods and come back to your club and everything running smoothly. Things happen and the assistant manager can be a little stupid at times, like resting key players for key games and playing fairly useless young kids instead of the better ones.

Which club to choose? Well, I personally did it with Liverpool and was flying for ten seasons and then when the core of your team retires, things get a little tough, but, if you can buy quality (look out for minimum fee release clauses) especially if they're young then try the big club, but be warned, you must be successful . You may be better off at a lower team and building an empire slowly cause this way, the club and board won't expect much off you. Just keep playing and playing and playing and saving regularly, but this will take a long time indeed.

5 Xbox Live Games6
Play 5 cups or tournaments on Xbox Live to unlock this achievement (1) 
See "First XBox Live Game" for details.
20 Xbox Live Games10
Play 20 cups or tournaments on Xbox Live to unlock this achievement 
See "First XBox Live Game" for details.
50 Xbox Live Games20
Play 50 cups or tournaments on Xbox Live to unlock this achievement

First Xbox Live Game3
Unlock this achievement when you play your first cup or tournament on Xbox Live (5) 
Play the mentioned number of cups or tournaments over Live. Note, you don't have to win, it's the taking part that counts. Set up a cup with two teams and work your way through it. Note, can take a long time for the 20 and especially the 50!!
Win an Xbox Live Cup10
You will need to win an Xbox Live Cup to unlock this achievement 
Simply win an XBox Live Cup for this. Just set it to one match, no home and away, two teams and you should have this after winning just the one game.
Win an Xbox Live League15
You will need to win an Xbox Live League to unlock this achievement (1) 
Simply win an XBox Live League for this. Just set it to one match, no home and away, two teams and you should have this after winning just the one game.
Goal Of The Season Award20
One of your players will need to collect a goal of the season award 
You need to score an unbelievable goal for this. This is another random achievement that you will eventually get. Wayne Rooney seems to score a good amount of these, so it might be worth trying to sign him or starting a career at Manchester United.
Sign A Player1
You will need to sign a player for your team to unlock this achievement 
Simply sign a player for this achievement, whether free (end of a contract, contract expiring or out of contract) or for money.
Clean Sheet3
Your team will need to play a match without conceding a goal to unlock this achievement 
Simply conceed no goals in a match for this achievement.
Win Promotion15
You will need to guide your team to promotion in a domestic league to unlock this achievement 
Well, the achievement says gain promotion, but I hear of people who get promoted via the playoffs or via second struggling to get the achievement, so you better aim for the top spot in the league just to make sure. Remember, you must go up a league to get this achievement.
Win Domestic Cup20
You will need to win the top domestic cup in a nation to unlock this achievement 
As simple as the description says, just win the top domestic cup, such as the FA Cup in the English league, NOT the League Cup. If you are having problems, simply save before a match and then reload if you fail. But you seriously should win this achievement legit if you are good enough to get the rest of the difficult achievements.
Win Domestic Championship25
You will need to win the top league in a nation to unlock this achievement 
Just win the top league of domestic football for this achievement. Whether it be the Premiership, Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga, etc.
Qualify for Int. Championship25
You will need to ensure your team qualify for an international competition 
Qualify for the continent specific competition it talks of, for international teams. Whether it be the European Championships, Copa America, African Nations Cup, etc.
Win International Championship40
You will need to win an International Championship 
Win the continent specific competition it talks of, for international teams. Whether it be the European Championships, Copa America, African Nations Cup, etc.
Qualify For World Cup40
You will need to ensure your team qualify for the World Cup to unlock this achievement 
Qualify for the World Cup. Via winning the group or playoffs.
Win World Cup100
You will need to win the World Cup to unlock this achievement 
As the achievement says. win the World Cup. England in my opinion are the best option, I believe the game favours the English with better computer created football talent after the best players retire. They are also a good option early on, as are Brazil and France.
Win A Continental Cup50
You will need to guide your team to glory in a continental club competition 
This is simply the European Cup, known to us as the Champions League. You must win it to get this achievement.
Win Confederations Cup50
You will need to guide your team to glory in the Confederations Cup to unlock this achievement 
You must win the local championships with an international team first (European Championships, Copa America, etc) or host the competition to gain entry to it. Then you must win it. I did this with England. But Brazil are also a good shout.
Undefeated Season150
You will need to ensure your team does not lose a single league match throughout the entire season 
I did this first time with the Juventus team, and only added Tuncay Sanli as a squad player. Simple really, don't lose a match. Save every so often just in case if you feel more comfortable. Just play a 4-4-2 with Emerson, Viera, Nedved in the midfield and they provide a good balance. You can rotate the fourth midfielder, Del Piero can have a good season if you don't over usae him. The strikers and defence speak for themselves.
Least Goals Conceded In League20
Your team will need to concede the least goals in your league over an entire season 
As the description says. The best way for this is to start from the back, get the best keeper you can, Reina, Cech, Casillas, Buffon, Van Der Sar. Then get two world class centre backs, Terry, Cannavaro, Carragher, Samuel. Then two worldclass full backs who have very good defence skills and speed. Finally, you need a decent holding player in front as well, such as Alonso, Viera, Emerson, Sissokko. I would also change your defensive line to deep in the player tactics menu.
Most Goals Scored In League20
Your team will need to score the most goals in your league over an entire season 
As the description says, if you have two worldclass strikers who play well together and have attributes that compliment each other, this should be a breeze. A fast striker and a tall ball winner is a combination you cannot go wrong with. Trezeguet and Ibrahimovich at Juventus are a good combination. Other quick players include, Cisse (who I recommend), Theo Walcott, Shevchenko, Martins. Other ball winners include Vieri, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Drogba.
Top Goalscorer In League10
One of your players will need to be the top league goalscorer over an entire season 
As the description says. Set the player who scores most of your goals to penalty kicker as well just to be sure. Only league goals count.
Golden Boot Award5
One of your players will need to be the overall top scorer at a World Cup 
As the description says. I got this with England and Michael Owen, with Rooney setting him up. 5 or 6 goals in the main tournament should be enough to get this. Brazil are also a good alternative with Adriano and Ronaldo up front.
Play 30 Seasons25
Play Football Manager for 30 seasons 
This one sounds just as bad, but it's not. It is on one saved game, so after you get the 20 season achievement just go on holiday for ten seasons. Note that it does not matter whether you get fired on this one as it is only an achievement to reach the 30 season milestone.
Hattrick5
You will need to inspire one of your players to score a hattrick to unlock this achievement 
Fairly easy, a world class striker should get one a season in all honesty. Just play them in the cup games against the poorer teams domestically and in Europe and the achievement should be yours. By the way, a hat trick is three goals in a match ;) And they must be competitive games.
Double Hattrick15
You will need to inspire one of your players to score a double hattrick (6 or more goals) 

This is somewhat more difficult, to get one player to score 6 goals in a competitive match. If you win the European Cup, the World Club Cup is a good chance, as well as the league cup in England and the European Cup qualifiers.

This took me seasons, about 14 infact, but I know others that got this in a matter of games. It's just trial and error with your team. I found that playing 2 up front was the key, one with lightning pace on the right and a good finisher who was good in the air on the left. Just perservere.

Buy 30 Million Plus Player10
Buy a player for 30 million pounds or more 

Fairly simple, you do however need 30 million in the transfer kitty to do this and you can set it up as money over a period or initial cost. You don't however have to buy some one worth that much, just simply buy a 10 million player for that sort of money.

You can also simply save, buy your player, get the achievement and then reload.

Sell 30 Million Plus Player10
Sell a player for 30 million pounds or more to unlock this achievement 

Not as simple as it sounds. As you may have to sell one of your key players for this, but I suggest....

You can usually sell a player for substantially more if you reduce the inital payment costs and up the payments over a 24 month period, so you maybe able to sell a 10 million rated player for 30 million by accepting no initial cost and accepting 30 million over 24 months. This also doesn't affect your transfer kitty, as you will get the 30 million's worth.

Or you can simply save, sell your player, get the achievement and then reload.

Win 5 Separate League Comps15
You will need to win 5 different league competitions to unlock this achievement 
Similar to the "Win 5 Seperate League Comps"except this time, it doesn't have to be the top leagues, it may also be the lower leagues, such as The Championship, The Conference, Serie B, etc.
Win 5 Separate Cup Comps5
You will need to win 5 different cup competitions to unlock this achievement 
For this, you will need to win 5 different cup competitions. These include the domestic cups in any league, the European cups, any of the smaller cups (i.e the league cup) and can be across numerous saves.
Win 5 Separate Top League Comps25
You will need to win 5 different top league competitions to unlock this achievement 

This is across numerous saves and you MUST win the top domestic league. Teams I suggest for ease -

Italy - Juventus

England - Chelsea

Spain - Barcelona

Scotland - Celtic

Holland - Ajax

These are the clubs that I chose and found many of them to be extremely easy. I did however not do the English league wuth Chelsea, but with Liverpool instead.

Win 20 Cup Competitions15
You will need to win 20 cup competitions to unlock this achievement 
This as far as I'm aware is on one save. This achievement should be easy enough to get when you are going for 20 seasons at one club achievement, simply because if you don't win cups then you will not stay in a job. All types of cups count for this achievement, whether it be European or Domestic competitions. Remember to win all those one off cup matches, such as the Community Shield, the European Super Cup and the World Club Cup.
World Player Of The Year10
You will need to get one of your players to win the World Player Of The Year award 
A tough achievement to get as it seems most of the time the selection is totally random to some extent. Just kae sure your club performs well over the season in all competitions and you should eventually get it. I noticed Frank Lampard and John Terry got it loads of times, so get buying them or taking over as Chelsea
Player In World Cup Best XI5
You will need to have one of your players selected in the World Cup Best XI 
If you win the World Cup, you should have numerous players in this team.
Player In Team Of The Year5
You will need to have one of your players selected in the Team Of The Year award 
If you win the domestic league, you should have numerous players in this team.
Player Of The Year Award5
You will need to get one of your players to win a European Player Of The Year award 
This is similar to "World Player Of The Year" achievement. A bit easier to get, as it seems that if you have a decent team that can challenge the top teams in Europe and your domestic league, you will get a player to win it.

ADDITIONAL TIPS

  • Keep your team troublemaker free as they will have a disruptive influence that WILL mess up the dynamics of your team. And it could upset some of your star players and will thus affect your performances and results.
  • Play with a formation to suit your squad, or build a squad to suit your formation. I always played a 4-1-2-1-2 (a diamond formations, I think known as a 4-4-2 attacking). Playing with a defensive midfielder, two wingers and one attacking midfieder.
  • Have a decent squad, but don't let it become too big, as you have to keep them all happy with first team football. The best way to do this is with versatile players, like Jamie Carragher who can play anywhere in defence and even in midfield, just like Hedwiges Maduro of Ajax.

DECENT YOUNG PLAYERS WHO CAN BECOME WORLD CLASS

This list is not everyone, but players who I have had experience with them and have become some of the best players in the world.

  • Mark Gonzalez
  • Hedwiges Maduro
  • Ryan Babel
  • Lionel Messi
  • John Obi Mikel
  • Freddy Adu
  • Theo Walcott
  • Lebohang Mokoena
  • Tuncay Sunli
  • Arjen Robben
  • Cristiano Ronaldo
  • Fred
  • Momo Sissokko

These players need first team football, but if they do, sit back and reap the rewards.

Feel free to ask me any questions via the forums, I will very rarely answer your questions over XBox Live, so please contact me here :)
