Step 1

Browse to the following directory...

Steam Users
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2010\data\db\1000\edt\

Non-Steam Users
C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\data\db\1000\edt\

Step 2

Look for the file transfer_embargo.edt. That file puts a transfer embargo on Chelsea and Bournemouth. If you don't want either of them just delete the file.

If you only want to get rid of Chelsea's transfer embargo then open up the file in notepad and remove the line...

Code:
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Chelsea" "03/09/2009" "03/09/2010"
Done

You will need to START A NEW GAME for changes to take effect.

I wouldn't say that is not playing by the rules so to speak... Chelsea will have a huge spending spree I think in my second season!

i think that this seriously shouldnt be able to happen in the game, the ban should stay and never change

so could you replace the word chelsea with any other club name and then that club would have the transfer embargo instead?

I assume so, more than likely anyway. That would be pretty evil though.
I wonder what would happen in the game if you entered "Manchester City" instead of "Chelsea". Where would all the players go :p
And the money they would have second season :O

There is a (great) probability for Chelsea, winning the appeal... Then it would be nice to get rid of the "embargo"...
But if this happens, i think it would be included in the next official patch, don't you?

I have just started second season with Chelsea and the ban has not affected me one bit. I signed Aguero, Vargas, Bonera, Donovan and a few youngsters (Verratti from Siena is amazing. 16 and I sold Deco for him!) before the ban was put in place. Won all domestic trophies but was disappointing in Europe.
