    Default Ever feel bad about beating you own team?

    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?

    Not really but I am slightly biased towards the team I support though, in terms of transfers etc.

    Maybe you should manage them, then you wouldn't have to beat them.

    I have to say i am totally biased towards United in the game ... I always sell them my players for cheap .. Never do business with UTD`s Rivals ..

    When i play United, Most of the time i usually play for a draw but if i have to win , i have to win...

    I dont feel bad its a challenge .. Also if it means helping United for other teams to lose then i will always do that .....

    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.

    Not in the slightest; in the game they're just another team standing in my way.

    No I never worry about beating the team I support. On the day I play them they are just another team that are stopping me reaching my goals.

    Maybe it is more weird than feeling bad, I suppose it's strange seeing the team you support lose by your own hand even in a computer game.

    When I haven't been them, I haven't been playing them either that much. I'd definitely feel regret but I wouldn't do anything differently.

    I do look for how my own team is doing when not managing them but wouldn't think twice about beating them - its usually a completely different team to irl anyway...

    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

    Yes, I support southampton and so when i beat them i fell really bad about it. I also never sign any of their start players even if its a 200 ca 200 pa regen. I also prefer to send my players there

    Through out the match i go mad if i'm loosing or drawing.

    But then after the game if i win i feel bad, if i had to loose then i'd rather loose to Burnley.

    But i always go out for the win against my team.
