Dear SI and SI community,
I have been playing manager games ever since I got my mom to buy me CM2.
Back then I was still a kid and I was just playing it for fun, but believe me when
I say that even then I used to be quite fanatic!
That is not the point of this thread so, I am not going to dwell on my own legendary saves.
Being a loyal customer, almost a fan, I got some of my mates to start playing aswell.
Even though not all of them kept on pretending to be a manager like I did, I never
stopped praising the game we all enjoy. When I moved out of my parents house,
my mates always see me playing FM on the couch with my laptop and a beer
Every new edition I download the demo and get my mates to do it aswell. For me
the demo has never been a reason to start playing a ''serious'' save yet, I like to wait
for the real thing! Never the less every time I tell my mates it is out again, but this year I decided
not to. At first atleast...
The funny thing about this story is; since I have been bugging my mates to play each demo
they somehow reminded that around this time of year the demo got out. Because I was not positive
about the new release I did not mention it to anybody yet. Today a mate of mine
asked me why and wondered if I had quit being a manager after all those years.
It really started to itch again and after having played my own sunday-league match today,
I gave the FM 2012 demo a decent try to convince me to buy the full game on October the 21st.
I really started to enjoy my new quick start and even reloaded the one that I gave up on and
enjoyed it just like the old days!
I want to let you all know, tomorrow I am back to praising Football Manager!
