It’s all about playing the long game these days with Football Manager. For some players, it always has been that way, but this years edition adds so many more reasons to get stuck in for the long haul. Yes, there will always be the allure of jumping into the boots of a Klopp or Guardiola and splashing the cash to build a dream team for one season, but starting from the bottom is a more attractive proposition in Football Manager…
During out 10th Anniversary celebrations, I talked at length about my journey with the Football Manager series over the years, but at that point, I hadn’t played, let alone installed the latest release. A few weeks on, and how times have changed.
The biggest political event of the year so far in British politics, Brexit, will make its debut in Football Manager 2017, the first known footballing appearance for this political event.

There might be a Football Manager overload this year as Sports Interactive get ready to release three distinct versions of the venerable football management sim.

This past week was a big one for fans of Football Manager, a documentary on the game was released in select cinemas across the UK, a release date was confirmed (November 7th for those who didn’t read the title of the post) and a massive amount of new features and improvements have been revealed. Good times indeed.
Earlier today I was talking with a colleague at work about the upcoming start of the domestic football season. Yes, the World Cup was brilliant and yes, the Champions League qualifying rounds have been going for a few weeks, but the start of the domestic season is something else. It also got me to start thinking…”when will the new Football Manager be announced? It is normally at this time of the year isn’t it?” And lo, when I go home and checked my emails, word was with me that the game had indeed been announced today.
It took me a while to get into Football Manager 2014 this year, but once I did, everything fell into place. I think part of the problem was that this year the game is perhaps lacking the one stand out feature that is an easy focal point of the game.
Come on now, don’t look so surprised, did you really doubt we would get another Football Manger game this year? When Sports Interactive boss Miles Jacobson tells PCGamesN that sales of FM 2013 were up 20% over 2012 then you know there will be another top-notch game coming out. Hit the jump for some details.
Football Manager 2012 has just received its regular January Transfer Update along with a massive 60% discount on Steam, at just £8 this is an essential purchase. Even better, if you already own the game and want to gift it to a friend, that will set you back £4.99. This offer ends Friday at 18:00GMT.
The new update, fully detailed here features a number of bug fixes to go along with the new database which features all the January transfers. I just hope it solves my issues with the Welsh league. Time to boot it up and check it out, can’t wait.
Miles Jacobson, boss of Football Manager 2012 developers Sports Interactive has been talking to Eurogamer about the success of using Steam authentication for their latest title. The headline messages from Mile’s are that the games wasn’t cracked for pirates until 10 days after release and that Sports Interactive have seen double-digit year-on-year growth for the series.
I am a big fan of the Football Manager series, and I think that in many ways the new 2012 edition is one of the best versions of the game to be released for a few years. However, in my long-term career game I am starting to reach an impasse where I am going to struggle to achieve my desires.
I’m a lifelong fan of the games made by Sports Interactive, be they the original Championship Manager titles, or the post-Eidos split Football Manager games. I spend countless hours every season playing them and it looks like this new version will be no exception.
The first blog for Football Manager 2012 have been posted by the lovely Miles Jacobson and reveals the planned release date for the game along with some details on the scouting system.
Following the recent reveal of Football Manager 2012 I was understandably very keen to find out whatever else I could about the new game.

I love this time of the year, the football season has just kicked off again, the roads are still quiet in the morning because all the kids are on holiday, oh and a new Football Manager title is announced.
