Replay Fields of Dreams
FOOTBALL LINKS AND LIVE SCORES.
An excellent thinking mans soccer management game, not so many features you cant remember what's going on but enough to keep you immersed and playing.
If you want a graphical Soccer Manager style games this game is very good. It gets my first place vote this year for the first time. I have not liked the lack of playing field in the past, just text but last year this was addressed. HOWEVER last year there were in my view a number of issues with it but this year it seems to be there ! You might prefer one of the others so try the demos.

If you want a graphical Soccer Manager style games this game is also very good. It has had my first place vote over the others for the last few years until 2010 when I personally liked Football Manager 2010 better - try the demos and see. Go see FIFA Manager 2012 by clicking on the link above .
A game that will enable you to stage your own version of the event - not really a simulation as the contents of this package in no way attempts to 'simulate' any particular F.A. Cup year, but instead provides you with the tools to run your own competition for any year, at any stage of the season, provided you have the full English league tables then current. Expect the unexpected, worry when your favourite Premiership team decides to field a very much under-strength team at home against the latest 'giant-killer', Lambourne / Owzat Games
.......is a table top game but
isn't a highlight game. Statistically, a game should come up to about 271
rolls of the dice, meaning (including extra time) each roll will consist
of about 20 seconds of action. The game highlights what may have been the
particular important play during that period of time. Players should
perform reasonably accurate to what their actual stats were during the
season if you use them with similar playing time. Nearly ALL action is
taken from the player cards themselves, there are limited other charts and
they will be remembered after a few games.

New to the Soccer
offerings, APBA Soccer comes with 4 classic European teams to choose from.
From the coaches perspective you manage your team and set the strategy to
put them in position and lead them to victory!
There are some aspects of the basic game system the soccer purist might not like, BUT the big benefit is that the game comes with all basic and optional rules and you can add your own to get it playing exactly how you feel it should if you are not happy with it as out of the box. But its a good soccer game as it stands.
Diggin Deep: Worldís Game (DDWG), brought to you by Diggin Deep Sports. With this game, you should be able to re-create a match of soccer complete with all the decisions that the coach would make. You decide who to pick and who to drop. You decide who to start and who to save as a substitute. You name the starting keeper. There are also plenty of Ďin gameí decisions to make. Do I take a shot from the scoring zone, or try to penetrate for a better scoring chance. If the game is tied late in the second half, do I play conservative, or do I play aggressive and go for the win? My star midfielder just collapsed due to heat exhaustion. How do I replace his offense? How do I replace his defense? Once you have a solid understanding of the cards, charts, and gameplay, you should be able to play a full regulation match in about thirty minutes
Glory on the Pitch Lamp, brought to you by Diggin Deep Sports. With Glory on the Pitch, you can re-create a full soccer match in about ten minutes, complete with the following:

Mark Crankshaw has sent me details of his Soccer Game which can be found and downloaded here with instructions and all details. Go check it out ! In his own words:-
"Iíve just completed the latest version of a soccer game that Iíve designed. I played a lot of Strat-o-Matic as a kid, and Iíve always wondered how SOM would have handled soccer. Iíve taken the liberty of producing a game as I would imagine that Strat-o-Matic would. The 2011-2012 English Premier League game Iíve designed should be statistically accurate, fun to play, and have most of the results read of the player cards just as with SOMís other games"
