Championship Manager Legends revealed

Ron "Chopper" Harris coming to get you.

Football management games have always been about the great players of the present - the Ronaldos, Rooneys and Messis of this world.

Now, that's all changed. Championship Manager developer Beautiful Game Studios has created a football management game set in the seventies, introducing great players of the past - the Brookings, Keegans and Bradys of this world.

iPhone, iPod touch and iPad game Championship Manager Legends: 1970's is available to download now from the Apple app store. It costs £1.79, and screenshots are below.

"Filled with nostalgia and history, you take on managing a team back when football was all about Spangles and sheepskin jackets," reads the official blurb. "A sporting decade that produced some memorable names, which for the first time in Champ Man history you can control and bring to life.

"The 1970's was an era of fantastic footballers including Johan Cruyff, Kenny Dalglish and Luis Arconada. Now for the first time in Championship Manager you can manage these legendary players and their classic teams," said BGS boss Roy Meredith.

"We've also packed the game with authentic news stories from the decade so you feel fully immersed as you play through from 1970/71 – 1979/80."

The launch of Championship Manager Legends is yet another result of Beautiful Game Studios' commitment to iPhone and online development.

In October it launched its first specialised iPhone and iPod touch Championship Manager game, ChampMan 11.
