> This was the Ultimate Soccer manager series in UK wasn't it?
No, I don't think so.
To my knowledge only the 1st Anstoss game was released in UK.
The base game under the name "On the Ball: League Edition" or " On the Ball: The Football-Management-Simulation".
The add on was called " On the Ball: World Cup Edition ".
