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.
