Pros:

its fun
you focus on your own player and improve its status to become one of the top players in the world
it gets addicting to the point that you just want to make another turn
its simple

Cons:

No option to make a match longer
Pointless online feature that directs you to a 3rd party site in order to sync your player's records

For an indie game with this much content its actually good.
I like the idea of improving your own player and options to do outside the match because it gives me this RPG vibe.
If you're not in a hurry to buy this game its okay to slip it until it goes on sale but yeah, this is surprisingly a fun game to me.

Fun little soccer game, I'm playing it to create a basis for a future character in Football Manager, however there are a few gripes.

probably the most glaring problem is that your teammate AI can be unreliable; like they'll run straight at the other team's player and get tackled, rather than try dodging or passing the ball.

Your coach can be bi-polar sometimes with his game and post-game comments.

ball hit-box is a little funny sometimes, where you won't 'catch' the ball when you thought you would.

The refs though are pretty accurate, even though the game doesn't explain what constitutes a yellow flag (I had to actually look up what they give them for and make a guess)

Don't expect matches to be upwards of 90 minutes either, maximum is only ~15 minutes for a regular match.

If you can get past all that though, you're in for a cute little time-waster.

Mix a oldschool gameboy football game with fresh add-ons and you got this game.
A pretty fun beer & pretzels game.
