Footballer of the Year was notorious because versions for other systems had an arcade action component that was totally missing in the BBC/Electron conversion … despite the promises of the cassette inlay. At one point there was a letter complaining about this in Electron User (https://archive.org/stream/ElectronUser ... 9/mode/2up):
After all the buying and selling screens I am supposed to enter the arcade action screen, but all that I seem to be able to get is a black screen and a message asking me to shoot left or right.
