Awesome stuff @OnlineSoccerGamr :rock: 

Im younger than you (born in 88) so my first experience was ISS64 when we got an N64 for Xmas when I was around 8/9 years old. Then on to ISS 2000 and eventually Pro Evolution Soccer. I was hooked since then :)

I had that Man Utd game on my atari - started on Kick off, Kick off 2, Kick off Europe, Striker - which was f**king cock hard - & you complain about scripring now.. try that pookeynoodle of a game, I literally ran around the house the day i managed to beat the cheating cpu twats in the World Cup final :lol:

Player Manager too, that lost me weeks at a time but it was flawed so you got to a point were you literally couldnt save your job - win league unbeaten and get the sack :lol:

A 27yr old game bangs out a game with an indoor game mode and we've not seen one on PES or FIFA since, what, 1996? Shambles.

I loved European Club Soccer, I remember borrowing it off my uncle and him never seeing it again! Epic game! Striker as others have pointed out was awesome, remember you could blast it at an opponent and knock them down and it said strike or something like that!

The ones I remember most (possibly showing my age slightly) would be Gazza The Game and Fighting Soccer on the C64, I remember wasting far too much time playing those ones along with that god awful Pele game on the Mega Drive that was nigh on impossible if I remember correctly and SWOS... Then once the PS1 was out that was the floodgates opened really, Actua Soccer, Three Lions, World League Soccer and possibly my all time favourite Libero Grande... Remember hammering that one in split screen mode! Great article and thanks for bringing back some epic memories!

In lamens terms it's lame. The walls were superb for selfie 1-2's, off the wall ham clearences where a joy. For its time it was so good, the game itself was superb for its world cups, me a @Mickyjustice used to smash this with at least 8 of our pals all having a team in the cup. Epic game for its day
