Football Manager Handheld 2009

Football Manager banner

Football Manager Handheld 2009 is the fourth ever game in the FM series on a handheld console, and Sports Interactive's fourth ever handheld game. Due to the obvious hardware constraints of the PSP platform this game is a cut-down version of the standard FM 2009, with a choice of just 10 playable nations and a total of 33 playable divisions {Below}.

As Football Manager Handheld 2009's new skins (Dark and Light) and lay-out makes it easier to navigate for Football Manager players, the addition of a reserve squad in Football Manager Handheld 2009 doubles the amount of squad members players can use. The player can now also customise their tactics and share them with their friends. Football Manager Handheld 2009's match engine is Faster as well; meaning gamers spend more time playing and less time waiting around for it to load than the previous versions, these are all still included in the 2009 game and now 2009 has now included the 2D pitch and the option to choose up to 4 countries to be loaded up at one time, these features makinf FMH2009 arguebly the best FMH made to date, however some problems with the 2D pitch have been encountered including freezing and goalkeepers not moving.

While, FMH is known by many as an highly addictive management sim and at first it may be seen an hard to master game with the transfer system. But, once you have played it for a while and got to learn the basics, you can quickly get many players for good prices who are young, and can be developed into future stars for your team e.g. Bojan.

Football Manager Handheld 2009 offers you the option to view how your managerial record compares to the other managers in your country and from other nations. The Hall Of Fame shows you the top 100 managers in your country and International Managers, this gives you the option to see how good you are as a manager and helps you have more when you apply for other jobs.

Manager Jobs is the place where you can keep up to date with how the other managers around you are coping with their club. It gives you the name of the Club, the managers name, the divison they are in, how the clubs finances are (Okay, Secure, Rich etc.) and the managers security (Very Insecure, Okay, Insecure, Safe, etc.). The top of the list will show you the Very Insecure managers if there are any, and the bottom of the list will show you the managers who are safe with the clubs they are at.

When you begin to manage a new club, whether it be at the start of a new game or you join a new club, the Board will have certain expectations of how the club should fair in the time period that they state. The better the team the higher the expectations. The board may expect you to achieve success in all areas, or may only want you to survive in the league you're in. You can also request different things from the board, for example; You can request a bigger transfer budget, extra funds for wages or extra time to rebuild the squad. The board will also give you a monthly review of how you're performing in your role. It will give you a note on how the board are feeling about you as manager and how the financial status is.

With Unlockables you can quickly make it to the big time with the help of 'Sugar Daddy' or perhaps no transfer windows is your style. As well as this with the editor you can edit and/or download the up-to-date files or create dream teams or anything else which tickles your fancy.
