What is Football Manager 2005?

Following a long association with Eidos who published Sports Interactive's Championship Manager games, the two companies parted. Eidos retained the rights to the Championship Manager name and Sports Interactive retained the game code and database which they developed into Football Manager 2005. This is therefore the first game in what became the long-running Football Manager series.

This game is primarily a management game. The player accesses all aspects of the game from team selection, transfers, media interaction tactics and the like via a menu system. Actual games are viewed in a top down 2-D mode. As is customary with games in this series a data editor is supplied so that the player can update the game as transfers take place and regulations change. Some of the game's featured statistics are:* over one hundred attributes for each player,

  • over five thousand teams in fifty countries,
  • over one hundred attributes for each player
  • statistics for over a quarter of a million players and staff,
  • a database with over two and a half thousand contributors.

New game elements include:* A Media section which allows managers to influence the managers of other teams and players by making statements to the press and TV

  • A completely revised interface
  • The Physio Room which provides accurate injury data

The 5th download is a patched version 5.0.5 of the FM2005 application that does not require an original CD-ROM to play. Move it into the game folder after applying the updates and run it to play the game.

The 5.0.5 updater can be applied directly to the virgin install of version 5.0, but for some reason the FM Data Editor does not seem to update properly. The solution is to apply the 5.0.3 updater before applying the 5.0.5 updater.

After the installation and application of the updaters, the game will probably present in the Czech language. To change the language to English (for example) click in the following order:

Nastaveni > Nastaveni > At top menu option (Jazyk), select English > potvrdit (confirm).

To change from English, the click sequence is:

Options > Preferences > At top menu option (Language), select preferred language > Confirm.
