i was "managing" with this game as recently as a few months ago. i never actually played matches with this game. just manage and simulate results.

one of the big glitches was that when you went bought a player from the starting xi of another team, and then you looked at the simulated results of that league, the team you bought the player from would finish last and be relegated.

then checking in on the next season, you would see that team basically finish first in the 2nd division and things would be back to normal after that.

best soccer game ever, no doubt about it. None of the "new" games, with all the graphics and stuff have came even close to SWOS

Easily the best football game ever. :)


Pauliewaulus added this comment on 2012-09-14 :

This game is still my favourate football game ever. The fact its 16 years old and FIFA 13 have only just started to use some of the features this game had is a testament on how well it was made. Game play was easy transfers very very innovative in cash plus player etc options, the choice of literally thousands of teams any were in the world,and job offers from other clubs makes this game innovative easy to play and so much fun. Now if
