Football Manager 2008 Patch v8.0.2

Football Manager 2008Sports Interactive gave us Football Manager 2008 addicts a real treat of an update for Valentines Day – the second official patch for FM 2008, namely patch v8.0.2! Now I bet there was a decision for some people to make, no doubt not wanting to upset their other half! ;)

Since this Football Manager 2008 patch comes after the end of the January transfer window, it means that it also contains a data update which provides you with all the latest player moves to have happened up until the end of January – which is always much more fun to have when starting a new game of FM 2008!

You can download the v8.0.2 patch for free from one of the download links over at the Gamershell’s FM 2008 patch page and while it’s downloading, you can check out all the updates, bug fixes and improvements included in this patch by taking a look at the FM 2008 v8.0.2 patch release notes page.


While you’re waiting for your free download to upgrade your game, why don’t you take a look at the Football Manager Podcast with SI Games’ Studio Director, Miles Jacobson or even watch the completely inspiring Football Manager 2008 trailer.

    Football Manager is a great game, but it’s always good to get rid of little bugs that the games tend to have and more importantly have the up-to-date players from the end of January transfer window – it makes starting a new game much more realistic!

  2. says

    @Rich – it certainly does Rich, I always check for a new patch before starting a new Football Manager game!

    @Stephen – I highly doubt that there will be another patch for Football Manager 2008, they tend to update after the January transfer window and then the August transfer moves are then brought up to date in the new annual version – I’m guessing Football Manager 2009 will be out in October.

  3. says

    No problem Stephen, the only other option I would be to see if there are any unofficial updates being released, but obviously these won’t be as comprehensive, but might be good for the big league transfers – assuming people still make these, I’ve not looked for them for a few years myself.
