Im in the Championship with Port Vale after getting promoted 2 seasons in a row and I was waiting on the sponsorship to come up in the news cause I was wondering how much money it would go up but it didn't. Nothing came up and I'm half way through my 3 season and in direr need of money. Here is a picture of my finances and the screen where the sponsorship money should show up.

It's ok I waited till after christmas and around the 1st of January I got a new sponsorship deal worth 200k a year so it was a massive improvement |) Still it was quite strange having to wait that long

At first I just used some the basic 4 4 2. Signed some fast wingers and strikers but they weren't very good technically :S After the 2 season in the championship I started using 4-4-2-2-2 Il Devsato tactic

and here are the links for the downloads

or use this alternate one for a more defensive approach when your not a Top Team.

Its not mine but its a great tactic. Beat Liverpool 4-2 in the FA Cup away when I was still in the championship, using this tactic after being 2nil down at half time so it works (H) see the link

Here is a list of all the players I signed in my first season and all are still in my team. Also all these players I signed for free.

Ali Gharzoul
Great defender for me and is still in my team. Good goalscorer from corners too. Gets about 9-10 goals a season for me.

Paco Sanchez
Can play anywhere up front except on the left of midfield. Play him primarly as a striker and currently has 9 goals and 11 assists in 12 apps in the Championship.

Jony Lopez
Good solid center back.

Oliver Norwood
Very very good center midfield player. Get him on loan for first season and he will more than likely sign for you for free at the end of the year.

Scott Malone
Decent left defender/midfield player. Just like Oliver Norwood signed him for nothing after a season on loan.

Xabi Pascoul
Was a good goalkeeper for a season or 2

Daniel Chylaszek
He was a decent defender/midfielder left for me

Also try to get Cristian Tiboni he's a really good striker for me and has got 50 goals in 2 seasons for me already.

The best thing to do is just search for free players during the summer and right before the January transfer window try to sign some players for free.
