Story so Far:
Welcome to the world of Player Manager 2000, a world where football management comes to life with more realism than you can possibly handle.
Experience all of the emotions that you'd expect from managing a football team, from fixture pile ups that effect top clubs to taking on the role of a giant killer on a shoe string budget.
You'll have to really think about both your squad and tactics before every game. As no two games are the same and each team you face requires a different approach. In the tactics designer you may choose to instruct a winger to make runs down the wing and cross the ball into the box. This is OK in theory, but in practice the winger may not have sufficient pace to make these runs successfully. By using the tactics designer statistical analysis you can check that the player has enough skills and attributes to complete your instructions.
