I wondered if anyone could post a comprehensive list of the game controls and settings for the different pages of this game?
i picked it up for 2 quid today just for some achievement whoring but it had no manual and it seems the buttons just change at random and its quite tricky to pick your way through blindly

Have you already played with FM06 or 05 on pc?
LB is the main menu and you will have already the same menu while pressing LB. In this menu you have "understandable" undermenus.
In each categories of this main menu you have a own "RB menu" with some features.
Don't forget to push multidirectional cross direction when you are viewing a table or player stats.
This game need a long learn of features and shortcuts.
To build your team you need to :
-Prepare your tactic : push LB then "your team's name tactic". Push B to change collectiv and individual (don't touch this if you are not expert of football) consigns. You can choose basis tactic too.
-Choose your player : Push LB then "Your Team's name". Put the selector in the player you want to choose then push X and a position. Positions are affected line by line from the GK to the strikers and in each line from the right to the left (for a 4-4-2 : GK-RD-CB-CB-LD...)
-To continue in the time : Push Right Stick (the most common function).
*If you wanna search players you have two ways : Scouts or yourself. Scout search are good if they have got good searching skills (sorry I don't know the english for their skills). But the best is your own search. Push LB and search players. Push X to choose your filters and then push multi directionnal cross to view differents informations like wage, end of contract etc...
==> when you want to scout a player or try to sign one, this player will be added on "your selection" which you can chack by pressing LB and choose your selection. The player will stay here for one year and you can change the date of removing by choosing the player and push RB.
*To change your training and your staff : Push Lb then "Your team's name". Push Rb to know the composition of your staff. You need some scouts, physio, an assistant and coaches. Check the compo of your staff and define your drawbacks. Then go back to your team (LT and RT are like "next and back" in your internet browser), and push RB to go to "search=> staff". Same principe as players search. Filter the skills by pressing X (scouts needs to be good in detection, assistant in motivation and tactics knowing, coachs in strong, tactics, attack etc... and physio at least 16 or 17 in physio skill).
If you have understood that you are ready to do some matchs and a travel in France...
