Elana Torun v Gotham City Knights 
Elana should secure their place in the knock-out phase by avoiding defeat
here.

be keen on a turnaround

What Is The Manager?
The Manager is an Online, Multiplayer Football Management Game. It's a community of leagues and managers, just like you, putting their football management talent to the test against other likeminded individuals.

How Are The Games Run?
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.

League schedules run concurrently and while openings may appear throughout the season it is more likely to receive resignations from coaches during the offseason.
