(Not So) Breaking News – Lichenstein Cup in Football Manager 2014

The trouble with working six days a week and running a games website is that it is so easy to miss a massive bit of headline news. It saddens me to say then that I missed a tweet last Monday from Sports Interactive studio director Miles Jacobson which revealed a massive bit of news about Football Manager 2014:

The Liechtenstein Cup added to the game in the Swiss football calendar.

I must say that is great news for a fan of the obscure leagues in the game. I was wondering on Friday night during the football internationals whether San Marino would ever see their league added to the game. One can only dream…anyway last week Miles tweeted a hole host of new features about the game which comes out at the end of the month which I have handily copied from the list supplied by the PR:
