I know this has been out for a while now but you could buy it then flog it on ebay, sell the the boxed (opened) game but register the steam log in first. This will allow you to play it online for free. Used ones are going for £13 on ebay at the moment!http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Football-Manager-2010-PC-DVD_W0QQitemZ300409938915QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_PC_Video_Games_Video_Games_JS?hash=item45f1d3e3e3

Sports Interactive has spent the last year working closely with consumers and the Football Manager community to implement key improvements to this year's game. Football Manager 2010 features new tools and changes across the board including some big additions to improve ease of use, navigation and feedback from the game with the introduction of a brand new match tactics system, the debut of a Match Analysis tool, a completely new look and new User Interface among other features.
Following the debut of a 3D Match View in Football Manager 2009, this year's release sees a revamp with improved AI, over 100 new animations for the 3D pitch view, new stadiums, crowds, realistic pitch degradation and better lighting, creating an even more realistic match experience.
