How drunk have you been? And more importantly, how successful? I'm talking cup upsets, league titles, setatanta shileds, Anglo-Italian Cups! I want to hear about the greatest Drunken FM Managers EVER!

Have only done it the once.

Seemed to do even better, then forgot to save regularly, then had a power cut! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Well it seems like a good idea when a little bit drunk, but i've never managed to actually play... usually when I'm back home after goin out all I can manage to do is pass out... occasionally in bed (and that's when I actually come back to my own place)

Not played drunk, but not so long back after I narrowly lost in the playoffs, I went out and had a massive session, one of my housemates found me asleep on the landing http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif .

Echo my thoughts... When I started this thread I wondered if anyone was mad enough! I once played for around 5 hours after a night out. I came round and had lost about 5 games on the bounce! For me alchohol and the sacred game don't mix. The problem is that when I'm out on a Friday/Saturday night I generally let my mind wonder back to FM. I then arrive home half-cut to get my fix and make ridiculous decisions!

I remember playing an earlier FM while drunk, but I forget how it went. All I do remember is that it felt really horrible. I actually think that it helped to contribute to the raging hangover I had the next day.

My favorite response from a thread like this one, maybe a year or so ago, was the guy who posted that he'd gotten himself toasted one night and played some FM, and when he woke up the next morning, he'd changed all his player's nicknames to "Shirley".

I've never played FM drunk. But once, when I was in college, I played a Christmas concert stewed to the Mickey.

Played a bunch of times drunk but I usually do just about as well as I do when I'm sober. I have several set tactics, training is great, morale usually high so it doesn't really matter if I'm drunk for a few game weeks, i need to pay attention in January and during the summer though, wouldn't play these parts drunk.

Absolutely! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I was following it with interest early on; I lost the plot a bit when it got moved to the Challenges thread and haven't checked in in a while.

I once got plastered on a night out in Nottingham. Bumped into the great Jason Lee, who wasn't wearing a pineapple on his head. I can't remember much of the drunken conversation but remember thinking what a great guy he was and how much i loved him as a player. I woke up telling all my friends, (and thinking how he was actually a **** player), loaded FM. And there he was, Club Captain, Derby Countys Record Signing. I still to this day have no recolection of this signing and the relationship with the board and fans were never the same.

He went to Mansfield the following season for 9k

I had a few the other night and had a wizz on FM, actually I got gradually drunk while playing FM.

Chester City managed to sign 32 Eastern Europeans, but did win the Johnson's Paint Trophy.

So on the field a bit of booze set us apart but during the close season it did lead to a bit of bravado in the transfer market, I counted 13 strikers in the end.

I had to spend a large portion of yesterday trying to flog the unwanted plays and ended up making a tidy profile which I promptly blew on a Brazilian - magic!

I played drunk a few weeks ago and i woke up to find yakubu, arteta, cahill in the reserves and i had signed and promoted from the youth team the funniest looking regens ive ever seen, i must have been looking for them for over 3 hours. Lost 6 games in a row, on a plus my reserves won 4 in a row.

Feeling suitably drunk and being on my longest ever losing run (5 games) with Everton I decided that a new tactic was in order. It may surprise you but I had some very good results playing 4-2-4.

I know there's nothing particularly new about the 4-2-4, but this had a twist, there was one AM, a DM and arrows on my full-backs to join the strikers.

This served me so well that I continued with the seemingly suicidal tactics the next morning, and Atouba finished with 13 goals that season from DL.

I rarely play it when I'm drunk, I'm either out or come in and go straight to bed. I sometimes play when I'm stoned, and my tactics stink and I become extremely lazy, thinking every game is instantly lost when I go 1-0 down.

Got relegated with Swansea all the way down to the Blue Sqaure Premeir but didn't sell no players , when I woke up I had a long cry and started screaming.

Ah, the good ol FM with drunk/flying high, nothing like it!!

Try not to do it much as I have the tendancy to think that I am a footballing god and can win with any line up i choose.

Worst case was deciding that I didn't need my First XI to beat Barca in the CL quarters with Wigan. Put out my kids and a reserves and go soundly beaten 6-1 at the Nou Camp. Lucky for me I passed out soon after and after coming too played the second leg, won 5-nil at home!

Of course, the game was played after the obligatory Maccas trip for greasy breakfast!

Ah my partnership of Adriano (67 million) and Bas Savage (10k) in FM07 for Chelsea was superb, although I will never know why I signed either as I cant remember, they were just there when I next loaded up the game.

Did it once while managing in Sweden, where my superb young goalkeeper and a rubbish old midfielder where both called Johannsson. Guess which one I accidently sold for £1k while drunk?

its as if the game knows youre drunk... even if i play the same tactics, against smaller teams, no matter how unlikely it is that we will lose, i always lose when im drunk...

once when i was man utd, playing very sensible tactics (i think), we lost 6-0 to arsenal. its mad

I played mortal drunk on Saturday after coming in from watching the match. Found out on Sunday I'd beaten Ipswich (championship) and Bolton of the Premier League in the 4th and 5th round of the FA Cup respectivley. Unbeaten with a load of draws in the League.

Cant remember a thing about it but well chuffed.

Thanks, I'll go give it a look next week (a friend of mine's vesiting from France this week)

Sorry for your loss, although it was a really impressive performance by your Defense, forcing 3 INT from Brady is pretty awesome, if LT was 100% I reckon you'd have a decent chance.
I can't see the Giants winning the SB the game should be great based on the Pats-Giants game in the regular season.

I'm an Eagles fan so living in NYC and having the Giants in the SB is probably harder than losing to one of the best teams ever in the AFC Championship Game http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I agree. I also decided that it was a waste of his talents to have him sit back in defence so I put him up front.

My friend (also drunk) took over as manager of Barcelona and signed up the entire Cheltenham first team to strengthen the squad. He also sold all his highest valued stars and spent the profits on signing Dion Dublin and Julian Joachim.

I woke up one morning after a session and found I had signed a 38year old striker on a 4 year contract, had a keeper in midfield and had lost five in a row. Spent 3 seasons building a reputation, 2 hours wrecking it.

Not for a long time and I doubt I'll do it again.

Got home after a long beer day with a mate. As my girlfriend wasn't in and there was nothing on TV. I thought I'd give it a go.

After 5/6 games, the commentary made me dizzy so had a quick lay down. My girlfriend arrived an hour later to find me asleep on the living room floor.

Still, I was pleasantly surpised when I loaded up the next morning to find that we'd gone unbeaten in those matches.
