Summary: I picked up this game for a £1 a while back, the previous owner having tried to offload it for a number of years. Ally's smirking countenance is a great endorsement for a game to have and in fact accounts for 3 of the 5 stars that I've given the game. The other two stars are for the game's unerring realism; the tax-dodging option is superb and I simply cannot understand why other games haven't implemented it. Well done, Ally.
Summary: This game is decent enough for those wanting to learn in a simulated situation how to go about mismanaging a football club. If you like to play it straight in life then I would avoid this and chose an alternative such as the much heralded Football Manager Series. Some of the most impressive options have obviously been integrated into this game on the experience and advice of McCoist and include the ability to avoid paying tax at the club.
Summary: This is the worse football manager game ever! It has no gameplay and is very hard to use! It is slow and no thought has gone into it! Just because its cheap spend that little bit more and get a proper game!
Summary: Im really not feelin those peeps who keep sayin this game is bad. I got it for xmas, as I asked for it even after reading reviews. Ive played it and I love it, its a breath of fresh air over the now tiresome CM series. Of course it will all change when CM4 comes out, Dont get me wrong I love the CM games but at the moment this is the most fun game I have played in a while.
Don't buy this game for the well being of management sims!

Summary: Please do not buy this game for the well being of footy management sims. That is really all I can say. It may sound good but the layout is appauling, graphics are sluggish, gameplay poor and generally pants. So please avoid this if you can.
