In the previous versions of this game, you could get away with being a bit of a football numpty, and generally flying by the seat of your pants.
No more, I'm afraid. It's a harsh reality this time! Players get cheesed off more easily, you get the sack (even if you've won the last few games), and your "Board" stop you making bargin buys if they don't think it's right (well, okay, a bargin in your eyes might not actually be that good, considering the player is 36 and want's fat bonuses).
So, lots more fun to be had managing Yeovil and trying to work your way up through the leagues. For a laugh you can take your kids straight out the Youth Acadamy and put them in the first team and make them play 90 mins - the results are worth the risk for entertainment !!
So, much better, but the only downside is that there are soooo many options for training and tactics during a game. Sometimes you just get so peeved and setting them you put the default on (and enevitable get whipped!!). AND, you have to be interviewed for any jobs you apply for - and if they don't like your answer - they don't give you the flippin' job!!
Good points? Shouting abuse at players during the game - choosing a suitably inappropriate analysis for the team talk at the end of the game - and, of course, trying to buy some dodgy Bucharest player for peanuts (everyone want's to play for Dagenham & Redbridge, don't they?)
