Are you ready for some footy, readers? Players are. But I kinda think they won't be 'scoring' very highly with this one (haw haw) because although what's here is all nice, thank you very much, it doesn't seem to be quite 'there' if you catch my 'drift'). You load the thing up, choose your team and its players, give them positions, change a few game values here and there (which is all very nattily done with pretty piccies etc) and just as you've prepared yourself for a nice bit of joystick waggling - there isn't any. Not a sausage. Instead you have to sit your way through the 'highlights' of each half of the match in hand (snooze), changing game players and wotnot at half time, and again at the end of each match. It doesn't class as a decent management game either (not enough to do), which is a pity because it's all been nicely presented, follows the World Cup (remember that, viewers?) and avoids all those long, pifflingly boring lists and snoozeworthy key presses which usually drag these sorts of thing down. For the loyal footy nut perhaps worth a look, but for everyone else it'll be heading bin-wards pretty darn sharpish.

So how am I doing, then? (I'll give you a clue - I'm losing.)
