The hours/days/months of my life that this franchise has eaten up makes for scary reading. The pull of constructive tinkering and trying to outdo the professionals are just two of the reasons that management games continue to thrive.
Sports Interactive are not happy with just making an annual update and this year they have near enough tried to reinvent the wheel.
The list of changes is vast over 1,000 if your counting, with the promise the 2014 will be the most realistic simulation of football management ever released.
The game is due to be released before Christmas of this year. If you pre-order the game from a participating retailer (list can be found followng this link) then you will be eligable for a Beta due to be released around two weeks before the games offical release. Best of all your career will carry over to the full game.
However is Twitter is more your thing then you can follow the game @FootballManger and Sport Interactive's Studio Director Miles Jacobson directly @milesSI
