I am managing Everton and have had to watch the team I support slip into the Championship which was annoying. I got to the league cup final and had to face the team I love, I beat them 4-0 and now the FA Cup draw is.
Everton Vs Bristol City/Norwich
West Ham Vs Sunderland
I hope that Sunderland do not get through, I am heavy favourite to get into the final and it would really annoy me to beat them in another final if they got through. For a split second I even thought of throwing the game as I have already won a league cup title.
Does it annoy you beating the team you support in real life on a computer game?
Maybe you should manage them, then you wouldn't have to beat them.
I usually do manage them just fancied a change.
I guess it was just because it was a final and being a Sunderland fan we don't get into many of those. I didn't feel bad beating them in the league, although if I had secured the title and they needed a win I would lose to them.
I was managing Chelsea, having won back-to-back titles, and dropped everything to rescue Sheffield Wednesday when Chris Waddle nearly had them relegated. 6 seasons later, and we're in the Champions League and fighting Man City for second place.
That said, I am looking to move on this summer, but if Wednesday start to slide again, make no mistake, I'll come back.
I change my tactics etc so that if I'm playing Swindon with say a Premiership club in a cup, I like to make sure I don't utterly thrash them. I play a weaker string team and play some players out of position.
I do feel bad hammering them and I often end up managing them sometime later in the game
AEK, 9 leagues, 11 Cups, 4 Ch Leagues, 3 European Super Cups, 2 Club Wold Championships
Re: Ever feel bad about beating you own team?
first of all i never manage any team other than my own in a country so it id rare to meet AEK when managing barcelona for example! when it happens i feel bad and i hope to win 4-3! but most of the times i manage my fav team
