I was quite happy to see one of the great game developers get involved in Facebook games and with cooperation with one of the in my opinion best game developers on Facebook at the time. With EA games and Playfish one could only expect a game with great potential and on a higher level than other Facebook games.
It was launched in the middle of the World cup so even I'm not exactly a football fan I installed it.
And then came the disappointment, my high expectations were shattered. It is basically a click and wait game. You are given a 'match credit' every six hours (up to 4 credits) which you use to play matches against other football clubs - in different leagues. How do you play a match? You click play button and that is it! You can then choose to watch the animation (which gets repetitive and I promise you you will not want to watch it twice) or thankfully skip it - tadaah you get the result. Result is determined by your skill (average skill of your players - you get them by purchasing random packs of 5 players so don't dream of signing Ronaldo anytime soon, its all luck), your training (you get training points by training your team - by clicking train button and choosing the time period yawn, if you don't train you will loose training points) and luck, the later being the most important from my experience, which kind off kills the fun.
There you have it that's all the game-play there is, well you can 'decorate' your stadium with a few training aids'.
Goal of the game is probably to become as good as you can and beat all the leagues that are given (they will be adding them regularly) with free match credits (attainable by waiting 6 hours per credit or playing with your friends once a day - max 3 extra credits) this alone will take ages. You can also purchase match credits with your real life cash but for a game like this I would not go there.
Not all is black though, the game does have great flash graphic and pretty good music.
I recommend it only to those that need finger exercise since this will add about 50 clicks per day to your routine and for those who like collecting things, since getting the right team together requires collectors nerves and patience - since for top rated players it will take days to get enough coins to purchase them (without reaching in your own wallet)
Summary: A game you probably won't get addicted to
