The must have game for any budding Alex Ferguson or Fabio Capello

Excerpt: This is without doubt the best PC game of all time. It is more addictive then any drug, and ridiculous fun. But then I am a football nut, and this is definitely not a game for those who hate the national sport. This game has been a borderline obsession for the best part of a decade, and only gets better with age.
Excerpt: Before having played the game I couldn't see the appeal thinking it was a glorified database manipulator with a football theme... Then along came a free demo in a cereal packet and I was hooked and bought the full version soon after. The basic premise of the game is that it's the beginning of the 2001/02 football season and you've just been installed as manager of your chosen club. Your board gives you their expectations for the season ahead and away you go.
Excerpt: This is the game which probably single handily made me get much lower grades in my GCSE's than anything else. The thoughts in my head during the spell of my life went something like this. Shall I revise maths? Well I can do that on Championship Manager. If I have £20m in the transfer kitty and I want to buy a player for £24m how much more do it need to raise?
Play the football management game nearlly a decade old.

Excerpt: One of the most addictive and greatest management games you'll get your finger tips on. The award winning Championship manager 01/02 is such an addictive game and is still a very popular game even nearly 8 years after release, the thing i love about this game is its soo fast paced and user friendly, it allows you to control your team with a lot of detailed player and team profile screens but it can be alot less complicated to the football management games which are now...
great game, perfect balance of detail and potential

Excerpt: If I could add up all the hours I've spent on this game and deduct from the age I am now, I'd probably be 16 years old, yes that's right! (and I'm 25!) This game is ridiculously addictive and far superior to its predecessors and successors. Before this game there was CM2/3 and 00/01, despite good also, they do not compare to this game.
Excerpt: This without doubt has to be one of the greatest games of all time, and for football fans has to be the greatest Football Management game ever, even greater than the one released in recent years with the full bells and whistles. Even now I still occasionaly go back to playing this version and for good reason, which I will talk about. This game had a lot of depth, with over 100.000 players to choose from.
Excerpt: Championship Manager 01/02 is the ultimate Champ Man, far superior to its predecessors, it is known for its incredibly quick set up and running of the game. Whilst having a huge database, scouting options and everyting you would expect from a computer management game, it didn't go as far as the 3d match engine in the next edition which was frankly crap.
Excerpt: My son has recently bought the new season version of Championship Manager having had an older version before. As well as having the up-to-date statistics on all the players it has some new features which make the game even better. The same principal for playing the game applies as before. You are the manager of a team in a league and the objective is to win the league and cup competitions you are in.
Excerpt: When the Premiership was born back in 1992, it soon became one of the biggest leagues in the world…then all of a sudden, it gave birth, theoretically, to one of the biggest computer games in the world…that being of course, Championship Manager. Being a student with plenty of time on his hands!!
Excerpt: The game itself is one of a kind. Easy to follow, but experience in previous championship manager games would help you to understand the intricacies of this version. You can select up to 3 leagues from 26 countries, some with summer seasons, and some with winter seasons. You must however, select a main league to be able to select lower divisions for a few of the countries (The English league allows you to select the Conference as well).
Pros: Can manage more than one team per country selected
Cons: Imagery is limited, gameplay is technically complex
