I thought Total Football was okay-ish. Pretty simple control once you learn how to use it.
And Manchester United Premier League Champions and The Double are probably the best alternatives to SWOS or Kick Off.
I should give Manchester United Europe another go to see why it's so popular. I know I hated it when I played it back then. It didn't have very good controls.
Oh, and European Champions is an okay game too. Strange kontrol system and sticky ball, while controling two people at a time for some reason. But I thought it was fun. A norwegian magazine gave it 6/6. Weirdos.
