Next Champ Man warms up

Tuesday 1 August 2006
Championship Manager 2007 will be released this autumn for PC and we've got a handful of screenshots that capture the magic of a Lincoln vs Brighton match.

The 2007 edition of the long-running management-sim series will have a completely fresh appearance thanks to new skins, sidebar and menu shortcuts. There will also be the chance to experience the drama of international football as gamers can now manage their national side in the big summer tournaments.

Other new features include a match analysis tool which provides stats for every match, player and goal, similar to the data used by today's top managers. Then there's the team talk function that will allow for instructions to be given to players before the game or at half-time.

Finally, thanks to the autumnal release, developer Beautiful Game Studios will be able to include all the transfers that were completed during the close season.
