From the inlay:
Welcome to The Manager, the football management game that is easy to get into, and actually FUN to play!
As newly appointed manager of a fourth division club, your brief is simple - to turn it into a successful FIRST division team. You have a ten year contract, in which time you must prove your worth by winning the league title! However, if at any time the board feels you are not performing well enough, then you could be sacked without warning!
