WHAT IS FOOTBALL MANAGER 2010?
In Mirror Football's opinion, the greatest management simulation video game in the world, allowing you to take the club of your choice to glory. The gameplay is simple but the options run deep, allowing you to tweak training, tactics, team talks and much, much more as you bid to turn your side into world-beaters.

WHAT'S IN THE DEMO VERSION?
You'll be able to pick the club of your choice from the English, Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish leagues and run them for half a season.

WHAT HAPPENS THEN?
You'll be able to transfer your saved data from our demo into the full version of Football Manager 2010 when it's released on October 30, and get club logos, league logos and player pictures (where licensed) as well as better graphics with the full game.
