Don’t get me wrong, I understand the attraction. My management credentials in Football Manager has seen me do a much better job than Steve Bruce in getting Aston Villa back to the premier league. It has also seen me win the Champions League with St Johnstons.

In a report via PcGamesN, Football Manager 2018 is set to bring tactics and scouting to a whole new level.

Football Manager 2018 is set to release on November 10th, 2018.
