Some interesting little articles (including cool screenshots) are being posted on the SI website. Here are links to the three so far...

There will be one about the matchday experience tomorrow. Also, a beta demo will be released in the near future (next week, I think) so look out for that. I'm really looking forward to this game.

Actually I think it'll be more like a month until the beta demo.

sigames looks a bit too much like sidgames, I can't bring myself to click it.

It's good that you can choose to start as an International manager.

I thought the Italian FA's comments about Craig Hunter being picked as the Italy manager where fairly amusing. :)

The Macthday article has been posted and the screenshots in particular are worth taking a look at. Being able to view the pitch vertically in one half of the split screen is a great idea. It'll also be nice to be able to change the speed during the game.
