Soccer Boss: Football Game
Description of App
Take on the role of a football manager in this realistic soccer strategy game.
You are a young, promising football manager at the start of your career. A handful of small clubs are prepared to gamble on your potential and make you their manager. Choose one and take it from the bottom league all the way to European glory. Or will you ditch them when other jobs become available at bigger and better clubs, working your way up to managing one of the giants of European football?
▶ REALISTIC CLUB AND LEAGUES STRUCTURE
There are 750 clubs to manage across 9 European countries including England, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Russia, Portugal, Turkey and the Netherlands. Each country has realistic league and cup competitions, meaning there are 64 trophies to compete for in total – how much silverware can you win?!
▶ MASSIVE PLAYER DATABASE
There are 17,000 players in the game and your scouts will regularly provide reports on as many as they can. Make offers to buy or loan them, using your business acumen to negotiate transfer fees and personal terms. You’ll be in control of player sales too – will you accept that big offer for your star player?
▶ KEEP YOUR CHAIRMAN HAPPY
Each season your chairman will give you a realistic target to achieve. This could be something like avoid relegation, finish in the top 10 or even win the league. The chairman will expect you to steadily improve the team, so usually the targets will get higher and higher each season.You will be given a transfer budget and a wage budget for the season which you can spend on whoever you want. But be careful you don't spend what you don't have as the chairman will not take kindly to this and it could have a negative effect on your job security, maybe even resulting in the sack!
▶ APPLY FOR OTHER JOBS
As you career progresses, so your reputation will increase and other clubs will consider appointing you as their manager. You can apply for other jobs either in the same country you're currently managing in or abroad. But make sure you check out the state of the club first - you don't want to take on a side doomed to relegation, or a team which doesn't have much money as that wouldn't be good for your career.
▶ APPOINT YOUR BACKROOM STAFF
There are other personnel to help you manage the club. The Head Coach, Academy Coach, Physio, Head Scout, Youth Scout and Fitness Coach all play their part in the success of the club. Hire and fire them at the right time to achieve the best results for your team.
▶ TAKE FULL CONTROL OF MATCHES
Before each match you must pick the team, carefully considering the fitness and skill level of each player. Choose the formation and tactics to suit the opponent you're facing and then it's kick off.
As the match unfolds, change tactics if you need to. Have you taken the lead against tough opposition? Consider switching to a more defensive mentality to grind out the win. Is your midfielder's fitness levels dropping too low? Maybe it's time to freshen the team up with a substitution. But if you make all your subs too early and then pick up an injury, what will you do then?!
These tough decisions are part and parcel of managing the team on match day and will ultimately shape your career.
Do whatever it takes to win all 64 trophies and become the ultimate Soccer Boss.

I will definitely be checking out this game. As I already have the football chairman pro game and love it. I still like playing that one. Though I had to stop because I found that from the latest iOS version, voiceover keeps jumping around way too quickly for me to navigate in it.
When I go to play a match, it says team selection incomplete please select your team, I have selected the formation I’d like my team to play, and everything like that do I need to select the opposing team? If so how do I do that? Other than that the game is really awesome!
I did all things, but the team selection screen is very hard, anyone made success in selecting his/her team?
Hi, When you are on the tactics screen, Next to each position is a select button! Just hit the select button and select your player for that position. The team sheet is displayed in a formation that you have selected. Don't forget to select your substitutes or you will keep getting that message. On the left of the screen you have your squad players and Voice-over will tell you if any player has been selected and for which position. For example. S Downing M. The M stands for Midfield. Once your team is selected, just go back to the home screen and tap the next fixture button which will have the name of your next opponent where you will be taken to the next screen which may be the match day screen. You then hit the play button and the game will begin and just above the play/pause button is the clock! Voice-over will read out the match commentary and you have the option to turn on crowd sounds. Don't forget you can make a subsitute at any time by accessing the team sheet on the right of the screen. I find that the match day experience is rather good as I find it easier to make substitutes as the player selection is easier as it's set out in a list format. It's worth contacting the app dev as he is open to suggestions and is always making the app accessible for everyone. I've been making suggestions for quite a while now even when he launched the Soccer Tycoon game a couple of years ago. You can reach him through the contact option within the main menu of the game or just tweet him @TopDrawerGames1.
This is a very enjoyable game to play so far. One question: other than scouted players, can you make an offer to buy any other player? a long, long time ago there was an accessible football management game by Wizard Games. This was so long ago it was in the days of MSDos and Hal version 4, so mid 90s. anyway, that game had a transfer market section where you could browse all players who had been transfer listed by their clubs. So you weren't just bound by the scout's recommendations. I haven't spotted an equivalent here. Am I missing something?
Yeah since you explain it that way I think I get it now.
Hi, I’m afraid there isn’t a sophisticated transfer market and it’s quite basic as it will only show you what has been scouted for you on a weekly basis I think
So I did indeed figure out the team selection problem. When it says team selection and then a capital letter for the position with nothing after it that means nobody is selected in other news, I am position 22 in my league which is not good I may have to start looking for a new job soon LOL!
I wish there was a way of clearing the agent players off the screen. I'm not going to buy any coins! I've already purchased removal of ads but this pushy advertising won't work. I'd rather pay a fiver for the game up front than have this concept of coins. In fact the more times coins for this, that and the other are mentioned, the more determined I am never to buy any.
If you don’t fancy getting the sack, you can unlock that feature and I recommend unlocking the feature which lets you rename players which makes the game interesting
