We are Football is a love letter to old-school football manager titles, from which inherits virtues and vices. The holistic business management simulation is fun and the boardgame vibes works well on the long run, while the tactics aspect is a little bit clumsy and not so satisfying. Overall, it's a lighter, indie and quite different alternative to Football Manager series, with a great database editor too.

We Are Football is an accessible management sim for all skill levels, and whilst it might not be the best out there, it's still a lot of fun.

While they might share the same genre, We Are Football isn't trying to be the new Football Manager. Winning Streak's game offers a lighter formula, with some quirks here and there like sabotaging the field lights, but the logic that dictates the outcome of matches feels to unstable, and the lack of official licenses might not be welcome by some.

We Are Football lays the foundations for future titles to prosper. But as a game, it isn't all that great. The primitive match engine in particular is just not good enough in this day and age. Regardless, there are some good ideas present and it looks far more promising than most of the Football Manager clones that have come and gone. Even if you don't want to wait, it's not like We Are Football is necessarily bad. Some may find the streamlined, faster experience a refreshing change from Football Manager's more complex offerings.
