The Commodore 16 never really took off in the UK but it did have a version of Football Manger.
Erm ...... i dont think so. the bbc micro was light years ahead of the ZX81 in tems of programming and the number of games available for it. zx81 came with 1k of ram unless you paid for 16k expansion. crappy thermal printer as well. z80 sinclair BASIC was a poor substitute for the procedural BBC BASIC. then again the bbc micro was x4 the price.
