Not being sporty, but interested in management sims, my list is short.

First place: The Cricket Captain series - latest version CC 2017. Very comprehensive featuring a variety of competition types with a good selection of teams. I think it well captures the atmosphere of the real game.

Second: Women’s Soccer Manager. I know nothing about soccer; even less about women’s soccer, so I had to try this when it was released a few month’s ago and have been playing it daily since then. Extremely basic, almost arcade like, so works for me. Concentrates on player training and transfers and not much else. Tactics can be changed and boost cards played during the text based on-line matches.

Third: Footbal Chairman (Pro). One up from management games as we can hire and fire managers. Even more basic, no graphics, but fast and fun to play for a few seasons after which it becomes repetitive. There is also a lite version.

Punch Club is a lot of fun, but the grind at the end of the game is so unbearable.

I really wish they'd do a basketball management sim. I remember there was one on the PC from the early 90s that was actually pretty good, it was a pure sim game a bit like sensible soccer but not as complex (obviously or it would have garnered much more attention). Wish they'd do another that wasn't apart of the Live/2K series!

New Star Soccer used to be a phenomenal game but after a big "update" that turned it into a freemium title, it became a dud. It doesn't deserve to be on your list. It is completely unbalanced in all areas of play in its current state, just wanting to suck your money for "energy drinks". This switch to freemium ruined one of the best gems on iOS and still saddens me till this day. This is not the game that won that BAFTA.

Why are you recycling content?
While I'm trying to avoid re-published stuff like this being the only thing to go live in a day, it's part of a new strategy we're testing to recycle these kinds of guides more regularly. Some genuinely needed updating, like this one, although some others (and especially in the future) won't see many changes between updates.

All I can really say is that, while regulars will have read this before, these kinds of articles are always bringing in new people, and there's always someone new turning up reading this for the first time, and that's in part due to careful and regular maintenance we're doing.

Like I said, ideally, there's genuinely new stuff - like reviews or news - going up the same day as a guide refresh, but sometimes it doesn't pan out that way. As I've always said, I'd rather something happen then nothing.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

The only one I think does not belong on the list is MLB 2018. It is an old run down app that is in desperate need of a complete facelift. The Minor League system is pared down to nothing but a placeholder for extra players and the draft system is weak with a glut of useless players. Overall the game has not changed much since its inception and it is not worth the money.
