Description

LMA Manager 2006 adds further detail to the soccer management series, with more players, more clubs and more playable leagues than ever before. A more complex transfer market, additional player stats and 3D training matches allow for more sophisticated management than in previous years. You can also now create your own manager model and see yourself marching along the touchline during a match, being interviewed at press conferences, and picking up awards at the end of the season.

The game starts with the pre-season stats for August 2005 but there was a process whereby the player could update their game by downloading a mid season database which was saved onto their memory card. The game can be played with real clubs or a fantasy team, it has two levels of difficulty and the AI staff can help with finance & training, just finance, or the player can handle everything themselves.
The number of clubs is very extensive and covers the following countries and leagues:
  • England - Premiership, Championship, League one, League two and Conference
  • Scotland - Premiership, Division 1, Division 2 and Division 3
  • Italy - Serie a and Serie b
  • Spain - Liga 1 and Liga 2
  • Germany - Liga 1, Liga 2, Regional Nord and Regional Sud,
  • France - Division 1, Division 2, National
  • Holland - Eredivisie and Eerstedivisie
  • Portugal - Supa liga and Liga de Honra
