LMA Manager, the genre-leading football management series on consoles, is back in play in just over two weeks time as LMA Manager 2006 arrives on November 18th for PlayStation 2 and Xbox for a new award-winning season. Get your pre-match warm up and see the game's acclaimed 3D match in all its glory in the new video, now available online at www.codemasters.co.uk/lma2006

It's an evolutionary year for the series and LMA Manager 2006 comes complete with the most powerful database engine ever for greater depth and realism to make this the most powerful, content-rich edition yet.

  • The most realistic transfer market ever:

LMA Manager 2006 features new transfer artificial intelligence system for more complex contract negotiations, along with greater realism and personality from individual managers and players. Additionally, there's a brand new set of dealmakers so you can get your man, including contract clauses, staggered payment options, player-swap deals and transfers in advance to make for the series' most sophisticated transfer negotiation system.

  • Fresh new look and style:

With an all-new look and contemporary styling for the game's intuitive interface and stats screens, LMA Manager 2006 looks the business. Modern, sophisticated visuals present everything you need to know clearly alongside the most official football image content featured in a LMA game.

  • New graphics engine powers the most-detailed 3D matches:

Already the most visually rewarding match experience for managers, LMA Manager 2006's enhanced 3D match brings players to life with more emotional animations, including shouting, frustration, jostling, and gesturing. Star players have individual skills and tricks such as overhead kicks, spins, and turns. Plus, for the first time, you can create your own manager and see him taking charge from the dugout, armed with a range of new tactics and more complex dugout shouts.

  • All new interactive TV channel:

The brilliant LMA Manager TV station - Football One - has been completely overhauled to deliver more stats content and media reports. Catch up on the latest news stories, match reports, transfer rumours, injuries and suspensions. For the first time you can actually watch newsflashes that showcase major football events, including manager award ceremonies, sackings and major player signings.

  • The most comprehensive Training section:

Become your very own "Tinker-Man" and take a chance on those tactics and formations you've always wanted to check out. The main training section has also been redesigned to make it quicker to set up regimes for the players in your squad. You'll also get incredibly detailed training reports for all of the players in your squad, from first team to youth squad, that helps to reveal their hidden attributes and tactical aptitudes.

  • 3D Training matches:

Try out those risky new tactics before the big match with the new training match section - see your tactical experimentation played out in full 3D, rather than a page of numbers. You can also build and upgrade your training ground facilities, teach your players the tactics before a big day and read the more detailed coaching reports.

As the only football management game for PlayStation 2 and Xbox this winter, LMA Manager 2006 is coming November 18. Prepare for the must-play fixture in your living room with the new video, now available to watch or download from www.codemasters.co.uk/lma2006
