"The best Football management game, EVER"

Well, this is definitely the best out of the best football management games ever. I've got ot say, EIDOS are a bunch of geniuses. I ALWAYS buy EIDOS games, especially the Championship Managers. I mean, a group of my friends come round to my house EVERYDAY just to play this game. There is a huge number of players, from the best - the likes of Palermo and Ronaldo, to the not-so-good - the lowly Cwbran Town squad, and a vast amount of teams to choose from.
The selection of leagues, is larger than any other football management game I have ever played, and that is a lot of games. Championship Manager 2000 - 2001 sure beats the pathetic UEFA Manager 2000.
Like all games, there is a downside to this one. A season takes one hell of a long time to go through, but it's 101% worth it. It demands a pretty fast and powerful CPU to run it efficiently. I can't blame EIDOS though, I suppose the btter a game is, the more demanding of the CPU is becomes.
On the whole I would recommend this to all football fans who have a pretty deep knowledge into football. The best just got better.

    I agree totally. I'm badly addicted, and 7-hour stints in front of the screen are standard.

Product Information : Championship Manager Season 00/01 (PC)

Manufacturer's product description

Time to dig out your sheepskin car-coat and practise your half-time tantrums: Championship Manager with a new season and it's bigger, and better, than ever.This time round you can have up to 26 leagues running at one time (depending on the specs of your PC/Mac) and the wealth of tactics and options on offer are enough to test any budding Arsene Wengers or Alex Fergusons.True, the gameplay hasn't changed much, but it's the wealth and depth of stats on offer that brings back Champ Manager fans season after season. The other secret to its continuing appeal is it offers the chance to steer your beloved Third Division no-hopers to League and Cup glory, something that most Premiership-fixated arcade football games overlook.There are some new demands on your managerial competence: as well as the usual training, transfer market and staffing issues you now have to deal with the media, and the psychological well-being of your players is now as important as their physical health. As before the actual match is played out in text format, which sounds dull, but quickly becomes alarmingly compulsive.Championship Manager is probably not for the casual gamer as it is impossible to just dip into, but for those footy fans who KNOW they can run a football team better than 99 percent of professional managers, it is a must. Just don't expect much of a social life over the next few months. --Michael Bartley The hallmark of the Championship Manager brand has always been its unsurpassed levels of detail, and this is no exception. The 00/01 edition not only updates CM3 with all the latest transfer info, but also improves on every aspect of the game itself.Extra player stats are included; there is improved scouting and some great gameplay enhancements. Perhaps the most exciting improvement is in the level of feature optimisation allowing for improved running times, even with multiple leagues running simultaneously. Prepare to give up your social life...
