My name's Neil White, I'm the editor at BackPage Press and this summer we will be publishing 'Football Manager Stole My Life', a book celebrating 20 years of glorious obsession.
And we need your help. Part of the book will involve your stories - not about how you won the Champions League with Fleetwood Town (nice one, though) but about how FM has broke out of the screen and into your life.
So far we have heard about:
- A recovering heart surgery patient who smuggled a lap top into the hospital ward, causing a medical emergency when his team scored a late equaliser in a derby match
- A student who tracked down his favourite non-league FM legend on social media to inform him that he was destined for the EPL and international stardom
- An FM 'intervention' when concerned flat-mates held their friend down and broke his disc after a 'lost weekend' on FM
Whatever your story, we'd love to hear it.
Please send your FM stories to firstname.lastname@example.org
