I still play FM 2005 despite owning FM 2009, i love the detail and options available to managers and the news tickers are also very realistic. Anyone wanting to buy a football manager game, i would highly reccomend FM 2005, as the only new feature on FM 2009 is the 3D match engine, apart from being slightly out of date i still think FM 2005 was the best one made. Training and other aspects of the game are in more detail than FM 2009! 5 STARS-MUST BUY!
