Football Manager 2007 Achievement Guide
There are 50 achievements with a total of 1000 points
You will need to sign a player for your team to unlock this achievement
Simply sign a player, any player, best way is to ask your assistant to filter out unrealistic players and look for a player who is unattached to a club.
Your team will need to play a match without conceding a goal to unlock this achievement
Make sure you have a strong defense and goalkeeper, also a good defensive midfield. See the recommended players list at the end of this guide for help. Play a defensive formation with a defensive mentality, you should get this eventually.
You will need to inspire one of your players to score a hattrick to unlock this achievement
You should get this one over time, but alternatively play your best striker up front on his own against a lower league side and he should net the majority of your goals. Another tip would be to make your striker the penalty taker and free kick taker. Those of you unaware of what a hat trick is, it is when a player scores three goals in a single game.
You will need to guide your team to promotion in a domestic league to unlock this achievement
Take any team outside the nations top division and guide them to top league. Best way to get this one is when attempting the Promotion challenges which I will explain later in the guide.
You will need to win the top domestic cup in a nation to unlock this achievement
Note this is the TOP domestic cup, for example the English League this counts as the F.A Cup and not the League Cup. Remember to save regularly and play your best team even if it’s lower league opposition. IMPORTANT - You must play every game you cannot just take a team over in the final.
You will need to win the top league in a nation to unlock this achievement
Win the La Liga, Serie A, The Premiership, SPL, Bundesliga etc… No easy way of doing this, make sure you have a strong squad capable of covering for injuries and suspensions.
You will need to guide your team to glory in a continental club competition
This has to be done in the top continental competition for example the Champions League in Europe. Make sure you have a strong team and save regularly. Also the away goals rule plays a big part, so try and keep a clean sheet at home games. IMPORTANT - You must play every game you cannot just take a team over in the final.
You will need to win the World Cup to unlock this achievement
Either Spain, Brazil, England or Italy would be your best bet with this one. If you don’t get offered any of those nations just go to add manager and then take your pick. Unfortunately you have to play every game and that includes the qualifiers to get this one.
You will need to ensure your team does not lose a single league match throughout the entire season
Simply save after every game, if you lose press start go to main menu and load it up again. Easiest way to achieve this is in Scotland using Celtic, then the only team you need to worry about is Rangers.
You will need to win an Xbox Live Cup to unlock this achievement
The only way you will get this is by having a friend willing to stick it out with you. The best way to do it is go on holiday once the game starts same applies to all the online achievements.
You will need to win an Xbox Live League to unlock this achievement
See "Xbox Live Cup".
Your team will need to concede the least goals in your league over an entire season
Make sure you have a strong defense and goalkeeper (I would also suggest a strong defensive minded midfield). My advice is buy Vincent Kompany, John Terry as centre backs, Ashley Cole left back and Essien Right back with either G. Buffon or Petr Czec in goal. There are many other defenders also worth buying, but if you win the league you should get this as well as most goals scored.
Your team will need to score the most goals in your league over an entire season
Make sure you have a strong attack, 4-3-3 attacking is a good formation to use. The best strikers in the game are probably Wayne Rooney, Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o. Having a strong attack minded midfield would also help.
One of your players will need to be the top league goalscorer over an entire season
Buy a top striker if you don’t already have one, I highly recommend Fernando Torres. There is no easy way of doing this, but make sure he plays every game if possible. Another tip would be to make your top striker the penalty taker and free kick taker. Play attacking football and this should be done with winning the league.
One of your players will need to be the overall top scorer at a World Cup
Play your best striker in every game on the way to winning the cup, then you should get this one. Another tip would be to make your top striker the penalty taker and free kick taker. You might get a bit of luck and get drawn against a weak nation, make sure you take full advantage if you do and hammer them with a single striker up front!
You will need to have 5 players named in a team of the week
You will need a bit of luck with this one, but if you manage to hammer a team you should get most of your starting 11 in the team of the week. Winning 5-0 or better should do the trick and try not to concede any goals.
You will need to stay at a club for 10 seasons to unlock this achievement
Best way is to pick a good team and then go on holiday and pray you don’t get the sack. Or the hard way is to play every single season.

Win a Continental Cup on 3 different continents to unlock this achievement
Win the top Continental cup on 3 different continents, I recommend Chelsea to win the Champions League, LA Galaxy to win the North American Champions Cup and Orlando Pirates to win the African Champions League. This does not need to be done in the same save. Remember league form doesn’t matter as long as you win the needed completion, so you can go on holiday for league games, but play the Continental Cup games, remember to save after every victory and load it up again if you lose.

Win the La Liga, Serie A, The Premiership, SPL etc 3 times in a row. No easy way of doing it, make sure you have a strong squad capable of covering for injuries and suspensions.

You will need to win a match after being 2 or more goals down at half-time
If you find yourself 2-0 down at half time, give your team a good team talk, maybe make one or two substitutions at half time, or even change the formation and set your team mentality to all out attack, and hope they will respond. Be careful not to upset players with your team talk or you could find yourself more then 2-0 down after 90mins.

Achieve promotion from the lowest to the highest league with the same club (England)
You must take a conference north or south team to the Premiership.
Probably the hardest Promotion Challenge & there isn‘t really a stand out team to use, but I recommend using Sutton United for this one. You must stick with the same team until you get to the top league of that nation.
Achieve promotion from the lowest to the highest league with the same club (Scotland)
I Recommend using either Dumbarton or Berwick, although Queens Park are also a good team to use due to their 52,500 capacity stadium.
Achieve promotion from the lowest to the highest league with the same club (France)
I Recommend using Laval.
Achieve promotion from the lowest to the highest league with the same club (Italy)
I recommend using either Sassari Torres of C2/A, Reggiana of C2/B or Cantanzaro of C2/C
Achieve promotion from the lowest to the highest league with the same club (Spain)
I recommend using Rayo Vallacano and buy a player called Michu from Real Oviedo.
Achieve promotion from the lowest to the highest league with the same club (Brazil)
I recommend using Bahia without a doubt. Their star player Neto Potiguar will help you a lot so whatever you do, don’t sell him.
Players To Buy…
There are so many players worth buying, I cannot name them all in this guide so use this helpful guide. There are a lot of players listed so I’ve taken the best and added some others below to make it easier.
- Goalkeepers - Petr Czec, Carlos Idriss Kameni, G. Buffon, Iker Casillas and Igor Akinfeev.
- Defenders - John Terry, Cannavaro, Vincent Company, Ashley Cole, Leighton Baines, M. Essien, Dani Alves and Rafinha.
- Midfielders - Freddy Adu, Theo Walcott, Silva, Raul Garcia, Steven Gerrard, Ronaldinho, Cesc Febragas, Celsinho, Javier Mascherano and Lionel Messi.
- Forwards - Fernando Llorente, Wayne Rooney, Fernando Torres, Cleberson and Samuel Eto’o.
Finaly - I don’t agree with using this method, but if worse comes to worse you can just add a number of other managers and completely mess up their team. For example if you face Chelsea in the final of the F.A Cup, add manager and take over Chelsea, mess up Chelsea’s formation, put an outfield player in goal and while your at it use their money to buy your rubbish players from the team you are actually in charge of. Your pretty much guaranteed to win comfortably. It’s cheating and defies the whole point of the game, but it’s easier to get the achievements.
