Well this is frankly irresponsible if you ask me. Not happy with ruining the degrees and A-levels of students everywhere, Sports Interactive have set their sights on the working crowd too. It's not uncommon for Football Manager addicts to make local news having not been seen for days only to emerge, laptops in hand, gibbering about the counter-attacking advantages of a wing-back based 5-3-2 formation and cursing the chairman for inevitably selling their team's best player. Now, thanks to the iPhone, you'll find these broken people on trains and in toilet cubicles.
It's World Cup Final day today which means one thing: everyone's going footy mad, including the folks at Apple. For today only, you'll be able to download the game for just £3.99, £3 cheaper than the full price.
No of course it's not quite as fully featured as the full version of the game, but it's just as addictive. So much so that you'll probably find it drinks all of your battery life, you'll screen calls more fiercely whilst playing (or just ignore them altogether), text messages will go unanswered, Tweetdeck left to gather virtual dust...but you won't care. You'll be to busy telling yourself that you'll stop after just one more game...but we all know that's a lie.
