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]

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.

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 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.

not a chance, or even the big rivals of any team I've managed, at least during that game.

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.

I'd rather snap my FM disc in half than manage the pigs (Wendy). Just Jack, I'm same as you, I'd manage Rotherham, Chessy and Donny, but never Wendy it would go against everything I stand for!!!

LOL it's only a game. Put it this way, I would never start with the local rivals of the team I support in real life. If I was a lower league manager, and was offered a job at these local rivals, I would still take it.

You can totally revamp the team, and turn it into your favourite team anyways [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

I remember I used to enjoy a stint at Chelsea pre Roman. I considered them like I consider Spurs now, a fun challenge to try and break into the CL and dominate europe. Now I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole!!

Quite ironic this, I'm a Doncaster fan and the only local team I could manage is Sheff Utd. I've no idea why but us two sets of fans seem to like each other despite hating the rest of the area.

Ha, me too. No malice towards the Blades at all and have managed them a couple of times in the past.

As for rivals, no I dont think I could. As you usually despise a couple of players etc..

Although I did once take the Wales job and swear vengeance on the English FA after they sacked me for "only" coming runner up in the non-entity that is the Confederations Cup!

How's that work like? Two opposite end of the countries.



I would never manage Newcastle, I just couldn't, it would feel so wrong.
