There's been an addition to the handful of football management titles available on the PS2, and Premier Manager 2002-2003 Season from Sheffield's Zoo Digital is well worth a look. Bang up to date with club squads from five European leagues, Runecraft and Zoo Digital have clearly done their research. On the surface, it's looking pretty good so far, but what can yet another football management game offer us this time around?

Answer? There must be as much detail and information on this disc as there is in Ulrika's autobiography, but a whole lot more reliable. Premier Manager 2002-2003 Season is something of a footy anorak's dream which also gives free reign to your megalomaniacal desires. You choose the team, the tactics, who to pursue in the transfer market, and who to let go, and so on. It's as close as you can get to the dug-out without persuading the landlord at your local to let you take charge of his team's affairs and controversially drop Nutty Barry from the side. It's safer to stay home and play Premier Manager 2002-2003, the players' names are more exotic, if less enigmatic (sorry Barry) plus you get to spend enormous amounts of money if you're in charge of a big club.

The game features highlights in 3D, all the interaction with players, chairmen, agents and journalists any sane man could possibly need, and all with the aid of a simple to navigate menu system.

So, after a stressful day at the office, why not treat yourself to an evening of torment with Premier Manager 2002-2003 Season? We're only half kidding too - the difference between this game and real life is that you can always switch off the console.
