A Paradise for would-be sports leaders

Finally! After weeks of long, tough negotiations the Deal: Jadon Sancho is still only 19, changes from Dortmund to Inter Milan. Admittedly, the financial pain threshold is already exceeded, the transfer fee is 140 million Swiss francs, payable in four Instalments, two top talents, and with Stefan de Vrij of the Inter defence chief to Dortmund switch. There are a myriad of bonus payments and Investments in the contract work, which represent loose another 25 million Swiss francs, the BVB is a 30-percent stake in a resale, Sancho's opt-out from 2022 is ridiculously low – but what the heck?

The king transfer is completed, with Sancho at the side of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez in the Offensive of the bedroom should be the end of giant Inter back to the world club. And the negotiations as a Manager, have great Fun.

So the Game "Football Manager 2020", published at the end of November and in the world fantasies of would-be sports leaders fired. You can Real, horse – riding take on Bayern, Inter or FC Winterthur and all kinds of clubs and national teams-and with them in a virtual soccer world seasons best. Clubs from the 116 leagues in 52 countries on 5 continents, can take care of – even from Gibraltar. But no women's clubs.

the 2019er edition was bought via Steam and other channels of about 2 million people, including Football giants such as Paul Pogba or Antoine Griezmann, who have outed themselves as Fans.

The big FCZ Talent

The Game is used because of its almost unfathomable depth of Data with approximately 450'000 real players already in the professional soccer , to collect information. As the great scouting tools, Wyscout and InStat. So coach André Villas-Boas said to have "Football Manager" in his time as chief scout of Chelsea used to be able to skills of interesting players better judge of that. "We know, what is the significance of the Game," says Oliver Zesiger. "Accordingly, we carefully proceed in the data collection."

"The credibility of our highest Good."Oliver Zesiger, "Football Manager"-the chief scout in Switzerland

Zesiger is the "Football Manager"-chief scout of Switzerland, it is land to work nine scouts, the skills and potential of all the players down to 2. League interregional, every year, re-assess. "We can't afford to make mistakes," says Zesiger, "credibility is our most valuable asset."

And so the Bieler attended games, many football, reading Newspapers, talking with consultants, Association representatives, journalists. Zesiger is for ten years, his work has helped him to find a job as a Scout for a Swiss club. "It's all in the Game is also about to discover the next super-talent," he says. "This is just like in real football. And for us it is crucial that the Simulation is as realistic as possible." Lionel Messi, for example, is hardly of Barcelona to try to rescue, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé for Inter tax as Manager of FC Basel, it is almost impossible to commit YB-actors.

And so we are in the Super League, in the Miralem Sulejmani, Nicolas Ngamaleu and Fabian Lustenberger of YB, the best field of players rated in the "Football Manager 2020" and Basel's Jonas Omlin of the strongest Goalie is. The young Central defender Becir Omeragic (Zurich) and Leonidas Stergiou (St. Gallen), both only 17, as well as Basel's Noah Okafor have the highest potential.

sport chief and the coach

The popular football Manager Simulation established only a few years ago in the German-speaking countries, there are you since 1992. First of all, as "Championship Manager", since 2005, as a "Football Manager".

in Total, there are around 850'000 records of real people.

It's in the Game to squad planning and team control, one is in the virtual world to a certain extent, sports Director and coach in one Person. As a beginner, it may be in spite of a great number of opportunities to be challenging to keep track of them. So hundreds of tactics and systems are available, each soccer player is rated in over 20 categories, and can be entrusted with individual tasks. It is important to speak with the media, the training load set, disgruntled players to build. And all of that and much more again and again.

A Pole, and played 221 seasons

In the majority of Clubs from many leagues, even the names of the physiotherapists, a total of about 850'000 records of real persons exist. And each players details are set. So Miralem Sulejmani is formed, at Partizan Belgrade, never to Partizan-rival red star Belgrade switch.

At the headquarters of the manufacturer, Sega are an estimated 120 full-time positions for the development of the Simulation, around the world, 1300 of Scouts are in use, on the Internet, countless forums, where enthusiasts and Nerds on tactics, miracle children, exchange, bargain or Files with additional data exist.

Theoretically, can be "Football Manager" infinitely long games, there are new players and characters are always generated. The 38-year-old Pole Michal Leniec set in 2017, a record, he denied 221 seasons, was with his favourite club is Lech Poznan 207 times Polish champion, even winning the Champions League and with Poland in the world Cup. As Leniec stopped in the season 2237/38, was his Manager figure 258 years old.

The addictive potential of Games is huge. And who is deterred whether or not all of the ways to find stripped down versions of the App for the iPhone and iPad. We don't do it as a Inter-Manager quite as wild as the crazy Pole. Once Jadon Sancho to win the Champions League and another exciting challenge.

Maybe Nottingham Forest, after decades, finally, back to top lead. The HSV then bring, where he hears as the world's city club hung. Or the ultimate Challenge: the GC as a national Institution is established.
