Summary: (Also known as "WorldWide Soccer Manager 2005") Sports Interactive have crafted a superbly detailed masterpiece in Football Manager 2005. Manager Mind games: With Football Manager, mind games can play a key part in every game. Put your fellow managers under the strain with a few white lies and then turn the screw with a damning criticism of your rivals’ title chances. Just be wary of reaction and retaliation! Agents: Slicked back hair, mobile phones and a bad cockney accent! Bring on the agents - attempting to whittle you out of a few more million on a possible signing. You just have to decide whether they’re trying to flog you the next big thing or a complete donkey. The Back Room Boys: If you don’t want to don the tracksuit and sweat it out on the training field, then why not hire some help? From assistant managers to the best physios, they’ll do the legwork and keep you informed on your players, helping you sort the men from the boys. The Big Match: Tired of watching player’s use the same old moves that couldn’t take the ball round a lamppost? Football Manager 2005 has 30 extra fields for player data including ‘preferred moves’, allowing you to witness your stars perform their signature tricks. With feedback from the fans, Sports Interactive have further refined their award winning games engine to give you what you want from a management game. Football Today: Still have Smith playing for Leeds? That’s SO last season! With more leagues, players and championships than any other football management sim, Football Manager 2005 will also have the latest squads and transfers right up to the end of the summer transfer window, guaranteeing you’ll be on the ball.
