LMA Manager 2003 is a fun title which portrays the managing side of football very well. What it fails on is variety in matches and not being very descriptive in its highlights package. Also the inability to interact with staff and players detracts somewhat from the experience. It just seems that the complexity of Championship Manager gives us the freedom we need to fulfil our requirements, with or without the hot pies and mushy peas at half-time. That doesn't mean LMA should be discarded. Nice touches like stadiums and con-current leagues give an edge over the masterpiece that is CM, but just isn't enough to win the cup.
