iPhone Football Manager 2011 released

Costs £7 - four times as much as ChampMan.

Football Manager 2011 has arrived on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

It costs £6.99 - almost quadruple the (lowered) price of Championship Manager 2011 for iPhone.

Features of note are three active countries per season; customisable player roles; more formations; in-game tutorial and a built-in real-world stadium finder.
