    Me : OH **** OFF!
    Girlfriend : Fine! Leave it then! *Hangs up*

    Not so good.
    Judging by the fact that you actually care about this competition, I'm gonna assume you're a Derry City fan

    When watching the champions league with your dad, Walcott gets the ball, you then say "Walcott's good, hes got 20 Acceleration and Pace"
    Your dad turns and looks at you not quite understanding what you just said.
    Walcott then runs from one end of the pitch to the other getting past 3-4 Liverpool players to set up a goal.
    You then say "See, hes fast"

    I must say there are some absolute gems in here.

    ''When you're at work and someone asks if you want a cup of tea and you reply 'These reports are absolute rubbish. I've never even heard of tea' actually made me laugh so hard I couldn't breathe. I tried to tell my brother (a fellow FM madman) but couldn't actually get it out without bursting into laughter. It made me cry it was that funny.

    As I haven't been able to read 400+ posts I might repeat some here so apologies, but...

    1) Not only commentating on my game, but going through the half time scores as a stadium announcer at my ground, and then at the end of the game looking at the local teams' (Barnsley, Blades and Weds, Donny and Chesterfield) results and pretending I'm at BBC Radio Sheffield doing a quick round up of the days action: ''Blades and Owls win, draws for the Spireites and Reds and defeats for the Millers and Rovers in London''. (This is only when I'm Rotherham - on the current FM file I've been Redditch and Forest so do Birmingham/Villa etc's results or Notts County/Mansfield/Derby's!)


    2) Walking home from college and mentally building myself up for the big upcoming game at Bradford, and imagining me clapping the fans off at the end of the game when we win 1-0 through a James Tavernier beauty.

    3) Imagining Sky Sports News breaking the news that Niall Geoghegan has made a sensational move to Nottm Forest after 13 years at Redditch, and imagining the euphoria as one of the games longest serving managers heads for The City Ground.

    4) Getting a gut-wrenching feeling as I accept the job at Forest and leave the mighty Redditch.

    5) Discussing your reasons for leaving Redditch with your mate in Economics and as everybody else understands the curve for an oligopoly market you're telling him that you'd achieved all you could with a team getting under 3000 crowds in League 1.

    6) This happened once with on one of the Champ Managers, probably about 02/03. Punching the protective screen of the PC in anger as Hadjuk Split reverse a 2-0 defeat in Croatia to win 3-0 at the Vetch. It falls off and smashes on the floor, and you have to clear up the glass as you reflect on an incredible loss.

    More to follow I'm sure

    Some of these have really made me laugh, good job. I have 2:

    1. When you set your status to "busy" on msn and inadvertently ignore your girlfriend for half an hour because you are so engrossed in the game world only to minimize the window and realise you have to make up a good excuse quick for why you didn't respond to her.

    2. When you convinced your grandma to get you a laptop because you needed it for university (6 months before you go) but really knew all you wanted it for was to take to school and play FM in the sixth form common room in between lessons.

    this is a quote of a quote so i dont know who wrote it but all i have to say is.....GENIUS, absoloute genius. I had tears in my eyes after laughing so much.

    i think your addicted when you contemplate calling your newborn son "James Aguero XXXXX".

    or when you give players horrible in-game nicknames because they didn't want to sign for you. yeah how'd you feel about bojan- or should i say "stephen hawkins".

    1) Make up chants for your players and when they score you join in the celebrations.
    2) Cancel Meetings to play your relegation battler to decide if you get relegated out of the game as you didn't load the league below as you never thought it would come to this.
    3) Cry when you get relegated or promoted.
    4)Your supposed to be doing important work and if you do not do it they will consider your job but there is a problem...you are playing a rival so miss the deadline of the work and get the sack. to make matters worse you lose the game and threw the laptop out the window in anger.
    5)fail you exams as FM is far more important.
    6) buy the team shirt you are managing and get the player you have signed printed onto the back even though he is a Regen.

    I love this game so i'll share mine.

    You lie (however you spell it) awake at night thinking of tactics, who to play or buy, and then say "screw it", get up and turn on the computer and play.

    You have papers scattered around with names,stats,etc of players on your team or ones you want to buy. (I don't use the notes feature lol, I actually just found out about it lol).

    This game seriously is addicting. I just got it a few weeks ago (yeah I know, I'd heard about it but never thought about getting it. I live in the states, after I bought it I never turned back) I played like 6 hours straight lol, no kidding. Time flew by so fast.

    Your right on three things here.

    1. You can be better than Rafa
    2. You're playing as Liverpool
    3. Your using a mac!

    Had a similar experience like that back in the FM05 days. My mate and I left a few parties early to go back to his apartment and play FM.

    Of course, this was usually when there were maybe 4 girls there at the party and about 20 guys, so it was a total sausage-fest.

    also a couple more

    1) When a goal is scored in your fm game and then you go out into the back garden to a do replay of the goal while commentating to yourself
    2) When your watching the football on tv and you see the line ups on the screen and wonder to yourself why the wingers dont have forward arrows on them and think that they are gonna struggle going forward. Only to then realise that it is man utd playing and they have ronaldo and nani on the wings

    ...your making love to your girlfiend/wife while in bed and watching your team play the match on FM...hoping your strikers finally get a shot on goal. Finally 1 of your strikers gets a shot on goal and you shout "I nearly scored!!", your wife then says "How can you nearly score with a soft tackle?", you then realise that your teams tackling has to be set to hard in order for your strikers get more possession and get more scoring chances. You set your teams tackling to hard and then finally score, your wife replies "You finally did it!", you reply "I know...I haven't been this excited since I scored 10 league games ago".

    When you try and add promising young footballers as friends on facebook. Then when they dont accept get angry because they are ungreatful b*****ds and YOU made them the players they are today but I reality your just a grown man harrasing a 15 yr old boy (how did it come to this ).

    When you go to a match irl and "scout" individual players ie watching them off the ball (Thereby missing half the match), then getting so excited by their movment, positioning, workrate ect you rush home to take them out of you reserves (where they have been rotting for a few years) and straight into the first team until you realise they is a valid reason you never played them.

    When your FM pre-season almost takes up a real life pre-season.

    When you start rating EVERYTHING out of 20.

    When you make yourself ill on a diet of Pringles and Dr pepper, just because you didnt want cooking to get in the way of a 48 hour FM marathon. Don't even ask what I did to avoid toilet time

    ...when your ass starts to hurt from sitting on it too much.

    ...when andriy sigporsson is you and your friends' collective hero.

    ...when you have to delete your save game in order to actually get any studying done.

    ...when you subsequently massively regret deleting that save and wonder - just a little bit - whether all that time you spent being productive was worth the FM sacrifice.

    ...when you turn on FM on the morning of a day you have nothing else to do, and you still think, bloody hell it's 9am already, I better get cracking.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one spying a new laptop, just to be able to turn on a few more leagues and run quickly... I want dual-core! I want faster HD! I want another mhz power! All of a sudden FM'09 goes from being a $40 investment to having a $2,040 pricetag.

    ... when you look at your player's profile, after telling the media "you dont think he's performing to his potential just yet" see he "doesnt think you're giving him the praise he deserves" and you launch a verfbal tirade at the monitor, only to realise a few minutes later, he cant actually hear you... the kids outside can though!

    When, you're sitting at home, on a Saturday night, and are delaying going to the pub like a normal person so you can negotiate the sale of Modric to Juventus and find a replacement for him, and refuse to even consider going anywhere till you do

    I suppose i'll post a few maybe no one will agree but these are mine

    you know your addicted when
    1) you sing songs for the team you manage like you are a fan
    2) you watch sky sports news throughout summer and think i cant wait until new fm comes out so i can be team x
    3) you cry/get angry when your computer crashes and you lose your managing game
    4)you go to sleep at night waking for school/work and your first thought is you cant wait to play football manager when you get home
    5) you write down your penalty takers,free kick takers etc
    6) you go crazy when you win in play off final like its real life
    7)for a split second you think football manager is real and your then surprised that leeds arent in championship but are in league one in real life
    8) when you compare your results to the teams results in real life

    I've never forgotten the wonderful admission of someone on this forum who admitted than whenever his team reached a cup final, he donned a suit, stood at the bottom of the stairs, and then led his team up to the pitch (bedroom).

    I've been known to conduct post-match press conferences with myself before now. Though that was when i was slightly younger, and took the game far more seriously (ie. pre-FM08).

    When you go out to buy a mini fridge for your bedroom/managers office just so your favourite FM snacks of coke and chocolate will be readily available when needed. Two days after I splashed out for it, it went and broke (I decided to send it to the specialist as it would take 3-6 months in the physios office).
