I'm Werder Bremen till I die. The only way I would manage HSV or Bayern would be to run them into the ground, which is great fun but isn't exactly a long-term career [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

I'll manage Arsenal the day SI get a regen system that provides players of similar quality to the originals.

Or when Satan buys skis. Whichever occurs soonest.

As a Gillingham fan and a regular at West Ham games, I'd never manage Millwall, Chelsea or Tottenham.

I've played since CM4 and I've never done it and I don't think I will ever manage a rival (Arse, Chelsea or Liverpool)

I would never manage the big rivals but i hope the minor local rivals do well.

For example im a Sheff U fan and started with them i then left for an unsucessful spell with the ivory Coast. Now im managing local team Doncaster Rovers. Id never manage Wednesday or Leeds though

I'd never manage Arsenal, Chelsea, West Ham, Fulham, Charlton or Derby. Not overly fond of lower league London clubs either.

I'll only ever manage one Prem club and that's Liverpool. I'd consider a few lower league sides but when I quit LFC I always go abroad.

Though I did take over the Mancs and run them into the floor once because I was bored.

Well I like both Liverpool AND Manchester United (I'm a stupid American, I know), so I would manage them both.

As an avid Chesterfield fan, and a follower of Sheffield Wednesday, I could never manage teams like Mansfield, Notts Forest, Leeds, Sheff Utd! Not even for "fun"!

I always love winding up their managers [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

I would rather delete Burnley from the game than be their manager, as a Blackburn fan.

No.

I tried once on LMA(2003 I think) to manage Utd for fun, but when we came up against Liverpool I quit.
There's no chance in a million years I'd manage a rival on FM - where rivalries are more "Real"...

i support Sunderland and i've never managed Newcastle or boro on the game and don't intend to. Even when i've been offered the job when managering a small lower league side.

You gotta love the Northwich!

I'm a Liverpool fan and managed Arsenal for the first 4 years and then moved to Spurs who are close rivals to Arsenal - so it was sort of a chain of rivals - I brought Fabregas and Cristiano Ronaldo from Arsenal to Spurs for a combined total of about £94m

Some people would tell you it was sacrilege and that you can't be a real fan of your team if you do it. Of course, sensible, rational beings like you and I know there's nothing wrong with it at all. I just choose not to manage my rivals because who they are stops them from appealing to me. But I wouldn't criticise anyone who did.

As for his joke, just let the cretin enjoy it.

There are certain things you don't joke about and for me this is one of them. I don't particularly like Liverpool but I'd never joke about Heysel or Hillsborough.

To answer the thread poster - no I'd never manage one of my clubs real life rivals on the game. Would feel like betrayal to me.
