 Hidden Special Abilities 
 Should your players special abilities be hidden from your opposition and only known by you? Knowing this information can help you plan your lineup against a team. Would trading be affected? The Manager has always been a game of open information. Does a change like this alter that philosophy?

A custom simulator, inspired by the classic Olmec match simulator (by Allan Sellers), is used to process all the matches in the Manager. It creates an abundance statistics and information to help a manager decide what his teams best formation may be, or best team tactic to use. In The Manager the 'behind the scenes' calculations are upfront for you to study along side the statistics to help you make your next move.
When Do The Games Run?
Matches take place on a Friday and Saturday evening with the occasional Tuesday match to fill the midweek with excitement. The Manager endeavours to operate two full seasons per calendar year with only a short wait between each season.
