Top 5 Welsh Football Manager Challenges

Top 5 Welsh Football Manager Challenges

As our weekly Our Week in Games feature has returned, so has my Football Manager habit. I’m big proponent of playing in the Welsh league system especially as Football Manager 2020 includes the JD Cymru North and South. And with the next game in the series expected to be coming later than normal (understandably all things considered), but normal football resuming, a top five list of challenges in the Welsh leagues seems fitting.

Our Week in Games – Week 108

Our Week in Games – Week 108

This week, Epic Games and Apple have been embroiled in a pull no punches exciting legal battle over something called Fortnite.

To be honest, I’m not entirely sure what’s going on. I used an Apple once for about half an hour, wondering where all the buttons were. I’ve also never played Fortnite. With a full time job and two children I certainly don’t have time to try a battle royale that takes two weeks to play.

Football Manager 2016 – I Think I’ll Pass

Football Manager 2016 – I Think I’ll Pass

Sports franchises which see a yearly release often go through peaks and troughs in quality. It should be expected when you consider the limited development time on offer, but it is an important thing not to let a trough become a slide towards mediocrity. While I don’t think Sports Interactive are in danger of allowing their Football Manager series fall into terminal decline, their latest release feel extremely half-baked.

Football Manager 2015 – The Verdict

Football Manager 2015 – The Verdict

I’ve been a long standing fan of the Football Manager series, stretching back to my debut with the games in their original Championship Manager incarnation. Each year, there is something of a debate about whether buying into the yearly releases is worthwhile. Most of the time, the answer is an easy “Yes”, but with Football Manager 2015, I find myself unsure of whether this edition is a must buy.
