Britain's No. 1 Football Management Game

*   Four Divisions

*   FA Cup

*   European Cup

*   Cup Winners' Cup

*   Full Game Save


Ever fancied yourself as the Manager of a Football team? Ever thought "Why did they buy him?" or "He's a useless manager, I could do better than that!"? Well, now's your chance. Test your decision making and managerial skills with Alternative Software's Football Management game SOCCER BOSS.


Tips for new managers; Players move in and out of form - so keep an eye on their skill ratings, take care in the transfer market - a player with a skill rating of 1 costs £10,000, but selling him will only earn you £7,500. If an injury crisis strikes and you can't afford new players, you can play a goalkeeper out of position - but his skill level will plummet!
