Football Manager Friday comes to you today on a Monday. This week’s video features pre-beta match engine footage that will highlight some of the improvements made to it since last year’s iteration. Additionally, Miles has been tweeting all week about new and improved features for Football Manager 14 from tweaks to make it easier to find the players you’re looking for to being able to moan, Wenger style, about how your average at best right winger played 70 minutes in a friendly against Azerbaijan before suffering a horrendous toenail injury.
