The nerves in the tunnel beforehand, the close but no cigar moments during a match, the extra poignancy that comes with having a penalty shootout to settle a tie; it still astounds me how football can torture you for ninety minutes (and possibly more) then further singlehandedly dictate the mood for an entire weekend. I mean where else do lads cry when they lose, and cry even more when they win?
The swirl of emotions caused by football is manic, at times bordering on inexplicable, as you don’t always get what you deserve- which is why we all adore the sport.
The only blemish of the sport forever remains the fact that, despite its globally acclaimed audience, very few people can actually kick a ball about. I for instance could never make it past the trials for any junior football league, which is why I derive my satisfaction from playing Club Manager 2019.
Contrary to most football manager games where developers just skimp through the features, Club Manager has been designed with a simple yet extensive UI, making it an exemplar of a true pick-up-and-play club manager experience.
The game, which lets you become a manager of your favorite team, will not only challenge you to reach the very heights of your preferred league, but also promises to deliver an in-game experience that offers you munificent rewards for your efforts.
With Club Manager, you can play several matches across a variety of leagues while initiating suitable tweaks and changes in your team; testing you tactical nuance and squad selection criterion as you look to strike the perfect cord with your side.
Moreover, you will be at liberty to manage every aspect of your team, be it finance-wise or just up-scaling your team by scouting for key transfer targets; all with the ultimate objective of cementing your team’s place in the annals of history by winning both League and Cup competitions.
There is not a single player in the junior football leagues that isn’t driven by the ambition to play for the Liverpool’s and Manchester United’s of this world, or at the very least play against them in a domestic cup competition. This is, by and large, because great clubs are made synonymous with spectacular football arenas that play host to incredibly electrifying atmospheres.
You can in the same vein elevate the status of your club in Club Manager by increasing the capacity of your stadium, as it will in turn boost your financial bonuses for every home game. Reconditioning the turf on your pitch will go a long way in averting costly injuries to key squad members, whereas upgrading your gym will also help to improve key areas of your players’ stats.
With several aspects of the modern game becoming ever so intricate, it’s important to first play exhibition matches to test your tactical awareness, and quite rightly augment your team’s chemistry before launching a bid in the divisional matches.
One of the most outstanding features of the game however remains the fact that it is made available across various platforms such as PC (desktop or via browser game), iOs and Android; that way you won’t ever feel ring fenced from any of your friends or other players.
If I were you, I’d keep close tabs on the release date of Club Manager 2019- which is set to be announced soon- as the game will without question be a cut above the rest!
