I imagine Sports Interactive will update it in the next patch anyway now.

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.
Yeah either that or just appeal to the CAS and threaten heavy legal action.... :p (H)

Personally I have not and will not be be editing my game.

Editing to make your team better and making it less realistic like this takes away a lot of the fun

But when you buy the game you should be aloud to do what you wish to do with it to get the most enjoyment you can out of it. Even if this makes it less realistic

Hi there!
have you managed to edit the transfer embargo? does it work? i've tried too but.... nothig..... i'm playing with the patch 1.3
I hope you've found a solution

that's the path where the file is located:
C:\Users\HP\Desktop\Vincenzo\Football Manager 2010\data\updates\update-1030\db\1030\edt

and that's my edited file:
## Transfer Embargo ##

# Transfer Embargo parameters:
# "TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Club Name" "Start Date" "End Date"

# e.g "TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Chelsea" "02/09/2009" "02/09/2010"



"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Chelsea" "03/09/2009" "03/09/2010"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "AFC Bournemouth" "01/07/2009" "30/10/2009"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Inter" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Juventus" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Milan" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Fiorentina" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Roma" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Città di Palermo" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Lazio" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Sampdoria" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Parma" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"
"TRANSFER_EMBARGO" "Torino" "01/07/2009" "30/6/2015"

do you find something wrong?

In my opinion, Chelski should be either given a permanent Embargo(here's to hoping) or Can only sign 1 player. They buy success, rather than build up to it. B******s...
I know this is a bit late considering when you posted this, but you're a Barca fan mate.
