Football Manager 2008 is the fourth installment in the soccer management series. It builds on the original concept while adding numerous new features. Tweaks and enhancements in this installment include a mini radar pitch appearing during tactical changes, a new advisor system, an improved notebook system, a revamped captain selection, and widescreen support. There is also a TV view, and players can hold press conferences before and after matches. Other additions include international management, the board and fan confidence system, the award system, the finance system and a new calender. (MobyGames)

The game is also known as Worldwide Soccer Manager 2008. The CD contains installers for both Mac and Win versions of the game which plays in English, French and Dutch.

Download #1 contains the CD image file (game version 8.0)
Download #2 contains the most recent updater (to v. 8.0.2)

Version 8.0 cannot be played without mounting the original CD. I do have a crack patch to resolve this but it is ultimately unnecessary because, after the game is updated to v. 8.0.2, it will play OK when the disc image is mounted without the need for a crack patch.
