Old School Football Manager for WM
Many people nowadays are getting nostalgic and want to relive their youth and childhood memories through technology. This has fueled many devs to port old style games from arcades, consoles like the SNES and GameBoy, even from the PC (Doom, Quake, among others). XDA member sesonet decided that he wanted to re-create a game that used to exist for the Commodore 64 (C64). Football Manager allows you to control pretty much every aspect of managing your team and making sure that it gets to where it should be, in first place.

Few weeks ago in a pub we remembered it. I learned visual basic and created this game. I hope, you enjoy it with us.
