Unused Teams

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Is there a way to unlock these teams?

At the end of the team data list are three extra clubs that cannot be selected in-game.

The first team is Rotherham United, and is by far the most normal of the three. Krisalis Software were based in Rotherham, so their inclusion was likely a bit of local (unused) flavor.

Team Name Country Short Name
Rotherham United England Rotherham
Lee Glover Andy Hayward Steve Cherry
Junior McDougald Shaun Goodwin Scott Smith
Martin James Darren Garner Shaun Goater
Andy Roscoe Ian Breckin Trevor Berry
Scott Smith Jonathan Howard John McGlashan
Chris Wilder Mark Monnington Gary Bowyer
Paul Hurst Neil Richardson Bradley Sandeman
David Pierce

Speaking of Krisalis, the company is represented in the second unused team, with its employees taking the place of the players.

Team Name Country Short Name
Krisalis England Krisalis
Ramo Mark Adamson Neil Adamson
Phil Hackney Steve Colledge Dave Colledge
Mark Potente Marvyn Burton Andy Ware
Mark Edwards Tim James Mark Incley
Paul Kirk Simeon Pashley Tracy Hudson
Pete Harrap Siobhan Moron DeeDee

Finally, there's this team, which has a roster of random, unrelated players and an... interesting name/origin country. Its shortened name suggests the players would've had maxed-out stats.

Team Name Country Short Name
Ken Dodds dads dogs dead FUG land Too Good
Marcus Adamson Stephano Bielby Alen Boksic
Eric Cantonarse Petre Dragon Roberto Baggio
Romario Andreas Whiteley Gianluigi Lentini
Luca Marchagiani Christo Shoreo Franco Baresi
Craig Watkinson Basil Boli Mattew Le Tissier
Dennis Bergkamp Benito Walshaw Faustino Asprilla
Gabriel Batistuta Ricardo Oldale Gianfranco Zola

Unused Text

Most of the game's internal text is stored in cdi_demo at 19B46. Among them are two unused lines meant for the developers' eyes only.

The first one's is some temporary copyright/credits text that's quite informal:

La di da ... Put some copyright 
Message crap in here or something 
Written by Krisalis etc etc etc

The second is much more vulgar, and would've showed up whenever the text failed to work properly:

Fuckin' strings fucked
