  1. For some reason, I’m always able to buy and sell Kevin Keegan in the same day for a profit. I don’t know if there’s a punch line in that, but here’s hoping.

  2. I used to play this game when I was a kid. I remember a mate of mine nicked off school and came round my house to play it when I was ill one time. It’s a top game, there’s something about it. I remember it was written in BASIC.

  3. It was written in basic, and you could break it running during the matches. If you did “goto 300” the team shooting to the left would get a shot, and ‘goto 400’ the team to the right, so cheat your way to victory! Great game and thanks for making it available.
