Let me know how you get on with it and any ideas you might have to improve it - we'll be working on regular updates for it in due course as per usual

Bought! Really excited to play this (even if it's at the expense of my social life). Only a few minutes in but I'm really happy to see that custom formations have finally been included!

One question though, when running multiple leagues, will the number of players per team be reduced slightly as it were in previous versions?

Edit: Just tried multiple leagues and I actually got more players than I did with only one league running, ie for Liverpool I had Joe Cole and Aquilani out on loan from the start when I had other leagues running while I didn't have those two when I only played with the English league running. How does that work exactly?

Depends how you define better. The PC version is far far bigger with more functions - as it should be when it's a game that has the PC power behind it.... but FMH2012 reminds me more of the old school Football Manager (champ manager) releases from years ago - i.e. the first editions before they beefed it up.

Personally after playing FMH2011 I decided to get back into the PC version. The PC version is much more complicated and time consuming - but I do love the extras again.

Not to say I won't consider getting FMH2012 in due course of course..

Marc - it's coxy100 from the SI forums - glad to see this is finally released - and you're allowed to talk about it at last
