I dont know if it's just me but I've found myself thinking about what tactic I should play, who I should sign, what formation etc etc on the way home from work.

I've even stopped to pull the car over and jot down a name that comes to me or a tweak to my current tactics.

If I tell my wife, I'm afraid she'll think i'm crazy!!!

I just spent the whole journey home thinking about how to deal with my under performing, tantrum throwing star striker!

Yeah I think about it DURING work, it passes the day rightly.

Also twice in the past week I've woken up during the night thinking about Babacar. Once more and I'll start to get a bit worried.

I don't worry about these things, I take the Save game to work with me.

I'm in the close season right now, all my aging stars have retired and I'm now trying to remember who I have on my shortlist - activities for the bus journey to work =)

I went for a job interview a few months back and all I could think of the whole time was starting a new save with hartlepool.

I didnt get the job.. (not the real life one anyway) Got the harltlepool job though, on better wages 2, so all was good.

I think about it at work as I do what I do. It really does make me seem very absent, but I'm just always planning.

I have sat through more than one lecture drawing formations and writing down who I need to sign.

It peaked when I took my laptop into one lecture and sat playing it.

I will often lie in bed thinking about it but that's as far as it goes. When I was younger though (as in 12 years ago when I was about 13) I used to print off my team, results and transfers at the end of each season so I could take it into school to compare/boast to my friends!

I haven't played it in a lecture, that's a bit too far! But I used to regulary jot down my team and highlight areas where I could improve, not so much anymore as I'm doing a Masters and need to listen! :)

That fact that I am sitting here at work on our busiest day of the week reading the forums says a lot. Reading other peoples opinions and thoughts leaves me thinking all day about how to revive the fortunes of York City as soon as I get in tonight !!!

A scary story from last night involved me calling my wife a BOUCARD !! (after my incredibly dissapointing defensive midfielder Andre Boucard conceded an 80th minute penalty that continued my streak without a win to 9 games !!)

Today at work I was thinking "that ****ing work permit application appeal better not fall through when I get home!" because I'm desperately trying to sign a Mexican striker on a free transfer to help me avoid relegation.

I used to work nights at the local hospital - dealing with the medical records etc... and around christmas time we had to draw out a hat who would work what ie - xmas day , boxing day and we would work th shift on our own, ( usually it was 2 or 3 ) anyway i got xmas day night and took my laptop in with me - played fm all night - safe to say it was the quickest 10 hour shift i ever did :).

Even pullling over the car? Oh my...
At the most I think about that stuff when I am in the bathroom.

You're not a real FM player unless you wear a suit and think about tomorrows game non-stop.

I think about the game when at work, but I would never go as far as pulling over the car to note something down. If the idea was that good, you would remember it anyway.

I used to takes notes of everything I noticed during games. I ended up with a notebook full of tactics and decent players for different levels. God I was sad back then. Was FM08 I think

Yup.
If i'm into a really good save, i think about it while i am on my way to work, during work and on my way home from work! :D
