Best football simulation around 300+ HOURS!!!


Honestly this is one of the best simple simulations other than FM18, if you enjoy football then this is the game for you, the seasons are quick and easy and are perfect for small journeys such as on the bus or train to work! there is also a sense of pride and reward after taking your non league club from nothing to champions league winners!! However there is one thing that I could critique it would be nicer to buy clubs from other countries and freshen things up as it can be a bit repetitive after a while. Furthermore maybe to take over the national team and Join the FA or something as it pops up who wins the World Cup and there’s nothing, you can do about it. I assume your team is fully English and if their 99 rated surely they must win the cup more often or not as they can win the Champions Cup! Obviously I’m just being critical of a flawless game, and suppose every game can become repetitive after spending so much time on it. I was Pleasantly surprised by how much this game impressed me, I hope you boys are doing a sequel because SIGM ME UP!!!

Needs new features and brand nee overhall


This game has been the same for so long now from the layout design to the features to the mechanics. The layout feels so boring, bland and old as its really been the same for years and years now.

We need a football chairman one is more detailed in terms of management side like having more stats on players and letting us find players and bid on them ourselves as in the real world not all transfers are made by the manager himself but the board and chairman.

Stuff like the training system needs to be ripped out and re made for youth and first team as its not effective and very old. You also need to be able to buy clubs overseas which would be a great thing if added. Loans should be allowed to be taken out as well and be paid back in a certain amount of time with added interest for the struggling teams and not just plummet into debts and go bust.

Just the little things like press talks and more advertisement money should be included as making money in football chairman is hard as just there are too many outcomes not enough incomes.

Thank you for reading hope you read this and take this into consideration for the next game.

Fast paced fun


A very simple game, but has a lot of features. I always find myself coming back to this game thanks to the fast paced nature of being able to breeze through a whole football season in around 10 minutes.

Probably could do with some new features as it’s been the same for quite a while now but still a fantastic game. Definitely worth paying for also just to support the developers to make more games.

I’ve got a lot of friends onto this game and they all love it and play it quite often. Good to compare how our clubs are getting on and growing and comparing successes.
