Player of the Year
As a manager, you have exactly the same options, except you don't have yourself as a team member. And can't change team, either. The "arcade" part of the game is almost brilliant, with the fans all dressed in the home teams' colour, with just the top end with the away fans, the gameplay, altough get easy soon, manages to combine simplicity and efectiveness without making the game look terribly shallow. There are 4 players models altogether (from fair headed to black - so no Abel Xavier look for anyone), shirts are perfectly recognizable (and each team has up to three kits), you can configure weather, referee stricness and all the usual stuff in find on similar games.
Basically, POTY is another game that seems not to be tested at all, and at best, an imcomplete beta of a product that promised a lot more, but failed, and due to too many bugs and easyness of play when you get a couple of talented players. Is not a piority unless you want to try all football games ever done.
