    Had the demo but my comp is so old, best bit is that you can express your admiration for other managers or slag them off.

    Its being released on Thursday now due to stockists in Italy releasing it early which meant cracked copies of the game appeared on download sites.

    So, how are you doing? I'm Derby, currently embattled in a Championship title battle with Forest.

    Game

    What site can you purchase this game! As in, can you download it instead of going to the shops to buy it?

    Doubt you can. Can't you order it online? Amazon and Play are doing it for £20.

    Started out with Man U to get a hang of the game. Won the league and league cup as well as getting to the semis in champions league and fa cup. Best bargain in the game is a german winger called Daniel Bierofka at start of game pay 400,00 for him and even in a top team will go and be one of your best players.

    Bought it the other day, and within 20 minutes I'd told Graeme Souness what I really thought of him.

    £30 well spent then :thumb:

    I have this game on order to arrive tomorrow. Should I make no plans to go out for the next few months?
    The first time I've strayed away from Championsip Manager in this type of game. How does it compare to CM4?

    It takes a bit of getting used to but its good when you get used to it. The stats are everything as before, its still made by the same people as made CM so its got the usual high quality.
