"A big difference you'll encounter is the auction system for player contracts. More like an online auction that the Football Manager games of old, almost eBay in terms of length of auction and with instant buy fees. Of course, you can always go outside this system and speak directly to the club. This touches on the appeal of the Live game – the social element, the sensation and atmosphere that's built up because you're dealing with real players this time, with banter and barter constantly taking place.
Once you're hooked, they'll be no stopping you until you become the world's best manager."
