Football Manager Live is the new football management sim from the kings of the genre and creators of the best-selling Football Manager series, Sports Interactive. Create your own football club from a vast database of real professional players and manage them in your own style then pit yourself against other managers online to come out on top. Football Manager Live also uses a unique combination of elements from social networking, auction sites and user generated content so that you can build and manage your own truly customised football team and lead them to victory against players from across the globe.

Includes 4 months subscription

Manage matches live. If a game's not going your way, change tactics on-the-fly from the virtual dugout. Your chance to play, win and rub it in!

    Show the world how good you are. Play against your mates or other managers from around the globe in a gameworld that's LIVE and online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

      Create and manage your very own football club. You create your team name, colours, badge and home ground and you decide which players to sign.

        Choose your own dream team. Take your pick from Sports Interactive's world famous database of over 280,000 real-life players.

          Develop your club. Use the innovative skill system to develop and improve your managerial style - unlock skills that will give you the edge against other players.

            Wheel and deal on the transfer market. Buy, sell, loan and exchange players in the lively transfer market, or snap up some talent with the exciting new auction system. Will you bid for Ronaldo or Kaka?

              Create and run your own mini-leagues and cup competitions. Take on the best or compete for bragging rights against your mates.

                Exchange banter with other managers via the in-game chat facility. Will their mind games affect you?

                  Play the game your way. Play matches at any time, in friendlies or organised competitions, with no restrictions on how many, or how few, matches you want to play - if you can't be online for a big match, you can pre-setup your line up and tactics, and the AI manager can do the rest.

                   Don`t bother buying this..

                  It`s a great idea having a footy manager where you can challenge the rest of the world.. But it`s seriously flawed and needs a re-think. Definately not worth the monthly subscription.
                  You can spend hours setting up your team and heading for the top of the league.. And when you come up against players that are never online, the ai takes over and you get whooped by the bottom of the league. Also there are players cheating and bending the rules and there`s nothing the moderators can or are willing to do.

                   Has seriously ruined my life

                  This game is brilliant, i am totally addicted to it even more so than football manager 2009, all the gameworlds ive been in have been very friendly and great banter. Its great rushing to try and buy the best players in the wage auctions and wheeling and dealin in the transfer market. Honestly feels like your running a real club.

                   Entertaining but rife with cheating

                  | | See all CaptainOrion's reviews (1)

                  A enjoyable experience but prepare yourself for lots of cheating. There are ingame Moderators to whom you can report these instances of cheating but it is more often than not the Moderators themselves who are the perpetrators.

                  Also be prepared to be playing against a fair number of Beta Testers, who have been playing / testing the game for SI for the past 18 months and have the inside knowledge on which players to buy, who the 'Wonderkids" are and which players develop into world-beaters.

                  Despite all of this FMLive is an interesting experience and offers you the chance to pit your tactical ability against other real people for a change. Unless you enjoy playing as a lower league manager in Football Manager, the novelty of the game can quickly disappear once it becomes evident that the "big" teams are already too big to compete against (much like the Premiership I suppose).

                  Overall, worth giving a try but prepare yourself for the reality not matching up to your expectations.

                   Close but no cigar

                  Has the potential to be a 5 star game but like all SI titles it's riddled with bugs, some of them game breaking and with SI's record in this department ( months to get a fix and most never fixed) it only gets 2 stars. Give it a miss for 6 months and then check the SI forums to see if it has got any better.

                  Talk of bugs is complete nonsense its a new game and patches will be released but i have found little or no problems. Its a very addictive and fun game with alot of interaction with fellow football fans, people often share tips to help your team along and it is mostly a good spirited game. I would recommend to any football fan
