View Full Version : Whilst Playing FM, what is your drink of choice...?

29-08-2010, 21:08
We have all done it at some point, or maybe not all of us, but we have all heard of the man who got wasted and sold his entire team for £2.50 and signed a non-leaguer for £27m plus add-ons, but when you reach for the drink when you play FM - what is your drink of choice - i'll get us started, with none other than Sailor Jerry Spiced Caribbean Rum & Coca Cola - liquid heaven! Over to you!

29-08-2010, 21:10
Sometimes single malt scotch. Tonight Budweiser '66'.

29-08-2010, 21:23
smirnoff ice will do nicely, thank you.

29-08-2010, 21:24
tonic water or some cola

29-08-2010, 21:30
cold tea or mineral water :D

29-08-2010, 21:49
green tea - damn it's cold here in latvia now :(

29-08-2010, 21:50
Tap water, hehe. Honestly, I dont usually consider it the type of game to drink alcohol with, if I did though, it'd probably be a can of stella or perhaps if I feel particularly extravagant a bottle of some sort of ale or wheat beer.

29-08-2010, 21:52

29-08-2010, 21:59

JD and Coke

30-08-2010, 01:58
Water or Cola.

Sometimes if i play FM at the weekend, i will have a nice cold beer. [Budweiser or Carlsberg]

30-08-2010, 03:02
Water. Apple root beer if there's no water.

30-08-2010, 04:32
Tropicana Orange Blush :thup:

Or whatever's nearby...

30-08-2010, 04:44
Chocolate Milk or Water

30-08-2010, 04:57
I generally have a cup of tea, just because my mum makes one for herself every 30mins or so :P

30-08-2010, 05:05
I partake in the delicious extravagence of a bourban know as Elijah Craig. To this wondorous liquid gold, I mix an amount of coke cola.

If I am feeling cheap though I go JD and Coke. If I am broke, just the coke.

30-08-2010, 06:33
Pure Blonde or maybe a nice bottle of wine......too much however can lead to some very odd decisions

30-08-2010, 06:41
Nice slow brewed Tea

30-08-2010, 07:44
Beer, preferably Lapin Kulta or just green tea.

30-08-2010, 08:49
Water, water and water.

When drinking I play Fifa :P Me and some friends made a drinking game to Fifa... Maby we should make one for FM aswell... hmmm

30-08-2010, 09:01
for me generally Snakebite :)

30-08-2010, 10:12
good to see alcohol and football manager is still mixed!

30-08-2010, 10:16
Normallly Pepsi, but if I'm cold I'll try some hot choc milk.

Peter G
30-08-2010, 10:23
Root Beer.

Barrie Robb
30-08-2010, 10:46
always coca cola

30-08-2010, 10:57
Morrisons Apple and Blackcurrent squash! All the way!

I refuse to play FM while under the influence of booze.

30-08-2010, 10:59
Coke, chilled water or if it's cold a nice cup of tea. :cool:

Luton Town
30-08-2010, 11:00
Cold Water or Coke for me

30-08-2010, 11:06
Vodka and Irn Bru all the way.

30-08-2010, 11:09
A coke from time to time and sometimes a bit a JD in it

30-08-2010, 11:12
Coca-Cola ;)

Perry Neal
30-08-2010, 11:13
The blood of Hibs fans.

Or orange juice, whichever happens to be in the fridge.

30-08-2010, 11:42
Ginger Beer :D

30-08-2010, 11:47
A cup of tea or a glass of diet coke. I don't drink alcohol so thats all ruled out, even when I did I knew that FM and booze don't mix.

30-08-2010, 12:07
Beer. My favorite is a Norwegian one called Hansa.

30-08-2010, 12:36
Drinking alcohol while playing FM doesn't work for me. I absurdly click the continue button without realizing what I am actually doing :P I need to be focused so I don't screw things up more than they already are so Water or Green tea is perfect.

30-08-2010, 12:41

Very occasionally a glass of red wine.

30-08-2010, 13:08
bottle of Bud or sometimes Southern comfort with a splash of coca cola or pepsi :)

30-08-2010, 13:12
SOL for me...........:-)

30-08-2010, 13:25
JD and coke :D

and if im skint, just coke xD

30-08-2010, 13:50
Tennants. And I'm not even from Glasgow..

30-08-2010, 13:52
Dr Pepper.....maybe a lager or 2 at the weekends. Budwiser '66 is my current fav.

30-08-2010, 15:24
That is truely a magnificant ddrink there!

30-08-2010, 15:29
usually coffee. Occasionally a Southern Comfort, but in recent weeks I've had the odd mint, green or camomile tea. I'm getting old...

30-08-2010, 15:35
If I could choose it would be Pespi Max with a lot of ice, in my favourite plastic pint glass.
However, because it maybe bad for your teeth, and that apparently its costs too much, most often it will be tap water.
I have a few times come back after clubbing, and drunkenly played FM, which then leads to me passing out on the keyboard. (Once my chin was carefully placed on the space bar, meaning I flew past the days, fortunately one of my players was ineligible for a match so it didn't ruin my game lol.)

30-08-2010, 15:35
Green tea - stimulates the mind and allows you to feel fresher for longer periods.
Also keeps hunger at bay, thus lessoning the need to leave ones computer chair for unneccessary food breaks.

Tactical munchies - I like it.

30-08-2010, 15:49
some dr pepper - whats the worst that could happen?

well i guess i could be sacked

30-08-2010, 15:51
A nice cup of coffee, lots of them if it's going to be a late night!!

30-08-2010, 16:04
Generally single-malt scotch or a Sam Adams

My friends and I have been known to play a drinking game with Goldeneye (N64) however. I highly recommend it to anybody who happens to still have that game and system. Waterfall from highest score to lowest score after the conclusion of each game. Slap kills are a shot each. Then you can get really wild and play proximity mines or rockets and have self-kills worth a shot each as well :)

The games get progressively more fun for obvious reasons!

30-08-2010, 19:57
Lovely cups of Tea.

Powering the british football management systems since 2002!

Nottingham Forest
30-08-2010, 20:41
Anthing really usually pop but if I can be bothered then it will be a cider.

30-08-2010, 20:49
Orange juice, milk or any strong liquor.

31-08-2010, 03:13
Diet coke or a nice cup of Tetley tea :)

31-08-2010, 03:32
Tea/Coffee from Whittard of Chelsea, or water

31-08-2010, 03:50
Coffee in the mornings, tea during winter, beer in the afternoon/evening. I'll take my coffee black, my tea Earl Grey, and my beer smooth and hearty.

31-08-2010, 04:10
A BIG cup if TEA, but well if its a CL final, i might prefer a bottle of Bud

31-08-2010, 04:45
its coffe mostly

but a rum and coke has been consumed before!!!!

31-08-2010, 08:34
I drink my own bodily fluids - that way I never have to leave my own pc.

Lucky you didnt ask what do we eat when we play.

31-08-2010, 08:59
A cup of tea along with a few biscuits.. nothing beats it! :)

31-08-2010, 09:11
Diet Coke probably, it's what I generally drink anyway, not sure why that'd change when playing FM. When I was younger and the drinking of alcohol was frowned upon by mummy and daddy, I finished off a crate of Fosters left over from Christmas whilst pulling a week of all nighters.

31-08-2010, 09:19
I don't enjoy drinks with FM that much, only coffee in the morning while i play FM and energy drinks for the all-nighters.
What i really enjoy with FM is a good cigar.

Alan A Wadge
31-08-2010, 09:27
Italian cooked coffee and a cigar.. .nothing beats that :)

31-08-2010, 11:51
A Can of cider or whatever energy drink is nearest, as of now its Lucozade. I have a large stash of both Magners and Lucozade, just don't mix them, baaad idea :/

31-08-2010, 11:56
Tennants. And I'm not even from Glasgow..

lol that is a sufferers drink,

31-08-2010, 11:59

now your talking mate a nice cigar you cant beat it:thup:

31-08-2010, 12:01
this thread is fantastic i cant belive what FM is doing to us we are all like Brian clough in his later days at forest, i think we should all meet up at a alcoholics anonymous meeting:D:D

31-08-2010, 12:30
Voll Damm, spanish cheap double malt beer.

31-08-2010, 12:35
Liquids, near a computer?

Alcoholic products, near my mouth?

Yes ? and Yes ? - who are you fooling, buddy ?

Recenlty I have found that a glass of Chilean Red wine goes very well with FM2010

31-08-2010, 13:00
Tea, normally.

gregt or smokey
31-08-2010, 15:27
I'm a tea guy, always going downstairs to fill a cup. In fact i should just bring the kettle to my room

31-08-2010, 15:37

31-08-2010, 16:46
Thought I'd have a go the other night at finishing my season after the best part of a bottle of wine and managed to lead my table-topping Leeds to a 5-1 defeat to 19th place Middlesbrough after an inspired formation change. So usually tea.

31-08-2010, 17:55
Raspberry Lemonade. Vodka for derbies and finals.

31-08-2010, 18:03
Has anyone ever gone on a mad bender as a result of a big loss? I cant say I have but I would be interested to knwo if others have!

31-08-2010, 18:07
Ice cold water usually, but either Hoegaarden or Savannah Dry if I feel like it

31-08-2010, 18:14
Leffe Blond or Westmalle Dubbel for me thanks

31-08-2010, 18:32
Vodka and coke

31-08-2010, 21:51
you know what, 2 days after creating this thread, it has made me quite happy to see the classy individuals enjoying alcohol with a fine game such as Football Manager - and as I raise a glass to it, and to you all, I say "cheers!"

31-08-2010, 21:55

Sorry, but is it now a bad time to say "Lucozade"? :p

31-08-2010, 22:59
Sorry, but is it now a bad time to say "Lucozade"? :p

haha, well i suppose someone has to drink it! :P

01-09-2010, 14:06
depends what time it is, in the evening whatever beers (budweiser or becks vier canned usually) in the fridge, in the morning tea with 2 sugars

01-09-2010, 14:23
For me it's either Magners or Jaegermeister, with ice of course.

01-09-2010, 16:40
Orange juice, milk or any strong liquor.

Haha love this, I like strong liquor too especially milk. ;)

However I usually have a glass or several of scotch...Famous Grouse :D

01-09-2010, 17:09
Coke, coke and more coke.

Made the mistake of drinking beer while playing several times. Think i've learned my lesson now :D

01-09-2010, 17:22
Generally, any lager works for me. I've found wine to produce the most ill-considered strategic decisions (not to mention the worst hangovers) and as such will tend to steer clear.

01-09-2010, 19:19
nice thread very opening to all players nice to see what the others are up to! i personally drink a LOT of coffee, Tea and earl grey team but i am a stereotypical "pom" when it comes to food and drink

01-09-2010, 21:12
Some good ol Lucozade or English tea

01-09-2010, 21:15
mmm earl grey , that certainly refreshes you

01-09-2010, 21:20
Milk, Water, Peach Juice, Fruit Punch, Soda.

01-09-2010, 21:24
Milk, Water, Peach Juice, Fruit Punch, Soda.

Is that a cocktail?

01-09-2010, 21:40
A odd sup of poitin every time i lose...

01-09-2010, 21:48
Gin and Coke or Vodka and Coke.
