Damn Cleon your a big un, going to have to watch how I talk to you from now on!

When I read the boxing part I thought you were maybe a relation to Butterbean. :D

In truth though a very good read, thanks for sharing!

Great article, I enjoyed that read. I also read the linked article about how Football Manager saved your life. A sad story that, with a happy ending. I have had close family members battling clinical depression; I know how bad it can be. My brother's best friend also killed himself through depression, that began with the ending of his relationship after his partner left him. A very similar story to yours except, unfortunately, he killed himself. I'm glad that you came through your ordeal. So many people still don't understand this terrible illness.

fwiw, I'm the guy who played for 30 seasons (on fm11) and couldn't win the Champions League until 2042. Which was literally a few weeks ago :D

Yeah everyone knows, it's an ongoing joke we have behind your back... ;)

It was on the SI facebook feed as well, congrats. Have to say I thought picking Santos as your team this year was a bit of a strange one, Huge club, Huge amount of players with potential. Always preferred the challenge of getting Fortaleza to the top myself.

"While many see FM as just a game it can also unite people. It's surprising how far FM can really take you at times and how it can impact real life."

I think that was the line of the article!

From playing the old CM's as a kid (well, trying to) Its lead me down the route of wanting to coach football as a career and gave me something to work towards!

FM can and has changed lives, Great article...Big props to you, well done!

Boxing eh? No wonder the interest in training!

An interesting read. Shame the last picture had to be an Arsenal one ;)
