Football Manager

but after the departure of renowned designers from under the wing Eidos Interactive SEGA came into the camp of the era of Football Manager. So what's new has appeared in the current version? The game can be played on the xbox compared to the previous part, in Football Manager has happened so many changes that to list them is not enough and the whole page. Therefore focus on the most important thing. Previously, the players looked like the soulless machine.

It was enough to assess the physical readiness of teams to analyze the arrangement of players on the field and explore the tactical scheme of the opponent.

Further in the case entered umnyuschy engine, which counted untold amounts of mathematical data and produce results. Now, among other indicators in the course of the fight significantly affects the psychological factor. You can cheer up our boys and unsettle competitors long before the starting whistle of the referee. Suffice to say in front of the press the right words to speak to the whole team, to a certain player in an individual interview or to offer to the leader opponent's move to your club, and thus destroy his team in a normal working environment.

Football agents have learned to play for time to knock you out of extra money in the latter stages of the transaction. Say, you, dear people, we better pay and our other young talent to be at risk from your competitors. In life, these situations happen all the time.
