    You start accidentally naming FM-created players in general conversation.

    "Liverpool need a creative midfielder, I think Hubert Knoll would be a good signing. You haven't heard of Knoll? He's Austria's capta... oh, wait a minute..."

    You always somehow seem to mention something regarding your FM savegame in day-to-day conversations with friends upto the point that they think you have found a substitute for having a girlfriend/wife.

    You are genuinely sorry when you have to release Dale Tonge when he has helped your York side to successive promotions from the Conference to League 1 that you remain upset for the rest of the day. You then search him on facebook and add him (which he accepts) and on social interview the question comes up 'Have you done anything to Dale Tonge that you want to apologise for?' to which I answer, 'Dale, I am so so sorry for releasing you from York, I hope it hasn't affected you or your family in anyway.' Then a few days later you decide to have a nosy on his profile and find out that he has deleted you off hus friends!! 100% true story

    when you sit next to your brother in law who is playing the game, and call yourself his assistant manager.

    (funny thing about it being, he left me in charge for one game while he went for drinks, and i lost it LOL! )

    When you go to the cinema and after the end of the film the only thing you remember is that you should'n play Eduardo

    your friends are bored of you and they think you are playing fm all your time (something you refuse)

    remember that you have bought a new pc game and you haven't tried it yet

    you see dreams that you have won the CL with a semi-professional team

    watching football and after a goal you expect a replay

    I've seen people do that. Some guy was playing as Barcelona and had this really outstanding regen - he ordered a Barca shirt and had his regen's name printed on the back.

    When you spend hours upon hours in the Editor creating a fantasy league where Spain has been split into its 17 autonomous regions, with each region having its own league, and with each champion of these leagues then going into a 17-team Championship play-off to decide the overall winner/European representatives, then creating a thread in the Spanish discussion section asking for advice on which teams should be placed in these leagues (all in Spanish btw!), only to find out that it's close to impossible to get something like that working on FM . You make a vow to just play the game from now on and leave editing to others.

    Then a week later you start a new "project"...

    I think your really addicted to FM when you see it's 11pm, say one more game and next time you see the clock it reads 4am... but you don't give a crap and just keep on playing. Or, and this is a true story. I was with this girl and ya know one thing leads to another and so on. So there i was, at it, and at some point i was starting to become a bit bored and began plotting out my summer transfers in my head lol

    Im genuinely relieved reading this thread i honeslty thought i was mental

    Taking bbc/sky tunnel interviews after every match
    Talking in a foreign twang when your new signing is being interviewed
    Shouting loudly at dots on a computer screen
    Clapping your bedroom walls after that great win
    imagening Soccer Saturday and Match of the day talking about how brilliant your doing and if your too young to be talked about as the new england manager!

    Once i binged on football manager so much that when my brother came in to wake me up i asked him (in a sleepy daze) to call Beckham's agent and find out his birthday, i needed it for the contract lol. Also i think your addicted when in May you start plotting signings for the next FM game... Already got my eye on the capture of Charlie Austin and Connor Wickham lol

    I constantly find that whenever a conversation or class doesnt interest me that much i pull out my notebook and begin writting down tactics or signings.

    Playing FM on the toilet, in bed, in the car (when not driving ;)) and what i do all the time is interview myself, if im walking along the beach its 'so (name) how do you feel about this or what is your plan etc. Sometimes when im walking around or waiting in a que i begin interviewing myself and do it aloud, get the weirdest looks ever!!

    When you find the club song for your 3rd Tier Spanish side and decide to play it before your next game.

    You then score whilst it's playing so you repeat the song throughout the game and get your best result of the season.

    Two things:

    1 - I've actually wondered in the past what other people do with their time. I mean, they must have so much of it to play with!

    2 - I coach an under 15s team, and on Sunday as I was putting on a sub, I used the phrases "play as an Inside Forward...attacking...cut inside onto your right foot" (at that point it was 1-2...we scored twice in the last couple of minutes to win 3-2 )

    When you coach U8 and it's only 4 on 4 with no keepers...and you still wonder if Billy the 7yr old would make a better AMC or MC.....and say things in your head like....his workrate is definitely 18 but his teamwork is a miserable 8.

    when you, beyond all expectation get blackpool into the prem, and immediately look for veterans, such as vieria, zenden, campbell, carsley, on a cheap free transfer and you offer them a contract, then when you get excited when it says, ...... set to sign, when you wasnt really expecting them too!

    and then when you struggle with blackpool in the premier league, do the honoruable thing and resign and give reasons in your head, such as the club needs someone to take them to the next level, and you personally feel you have done all you can do with the club, and need a new challenge in your career, and get offered the fiorentina job, and steer them from 17th in serie a to 5th!

    When you're in your bedroom playing FM and you parents call you and the first think you think is 'What could this be about, we've won three of our last six games despite the captain being injured'.

    1. when you need to do a cv to go out and get a job cos you have finished school and you need somethin to do in the summer, but you choose to load up fm rather than office (happenin to me)
    2. when you follow players because they have done good for you (if balotelli goes city i cant use him next season at inter)
    3. you are constantly on fm or any fm related site (fansite, si forums)
    4. when you are lookin at specs on new computersyou mention to whoever youre with 'that would run fm good' (i say this to my mate most of the time)

    Exactly, when you know all the squad rules, foreign limits, whether the cup has a replay or extra-time in case of a draw.. all that.. because of FM

    you start applying for real managers jobs;)

    and you put in your cv that you have won the champs league twice



    or when you are watching a real game and are convinced one of the opposition players should be banned....cause he is in the game
