You know you are addicted to football manager when............

Recommended Posts

Your school books are all drawn over with dots and forward arrows indicating the tactics you played.

Your favourite player no longer plays for the team you support IRL but constitently has had a 7.50 average rating over the course of a season after you signed him for a bargain price.

You go to a football match and say that a players 'creative freedom' slider needs to be moved down, or the team should use corner instructions like challenge G.K, 6 yard box.

You do motivational chants to encourage your team during their matches when a succesion of missed chances arise.

Back when I went to school this is exactly what I did all over my school books. The good old days! There is nothing wrong with random arrows all over your maths book it just looks like a bad attempt at using pythagoras theorom

when you sit down to play at 7:30 at night and say to yourself "i'll only play one match" The next thing you know it's 7:30 in the morning and you need to leave soon to goto work.

when you and your brother have to develop a system where you place your hand on your head if you're talking about football manager, to ensure there is no confusion with real life football and football manager.

You go to an U10s football game, and shout in-depth tactical instructions at the babies. :D

Lol. Sounds familiar.

My scenario starts with me as a referee officiating an 8-a-side game and rating each player with different stats out of 20.

When your watching Gillette Soccer Saturday and Jeff Stelling says 'Notts County have been promoted to League one after beating Barnet 4-1', you think 'WTF? They have just been relegated from the Premiership!'

you make up stats for your own abilities at work, like when years ago I was part timing as a bar man and was making up stats to pass the time, 16 for time keeping, 18 for pint pulling, 17 for customer service etc.

You're having an argument with your girlfriend (totally unrelated to anything FM) and she says "you've got a problem". You automatically think she's insulting the game and lock her out of your bedroom.

And, when you realise your mistake about twenty seconds later, instead of going and apologising, you fire up FM to get a happiness boost.

:D

Quality :thup::D

Your laptop was broke and you had to take a £2,000 pound loan out to get your hands on a great laptop system that will run all the leagues you want on fm.

In my case I want an Alienware, or something so fast! :)

....when someone asks you to describe your "perfect" woman and your answer instead of being what the usual "red-hair, green eyes, nice smile and a great body"...it sounds more like "a woman that let's me play this game...and brings me food to keep me alive." :p lol

i think i might just propose to a girl if she said 'i love playing FM'

i'd give bonus marks for it if any of my students did that!, i'd try intergrate it into my lessons, i'm not sure the girls would like that though! You could use PA and CA graphs and all sorts! Maybe if i put a photo of the 'girls' favourite players posing half naked next to the graphs i'd get away with it! I'd probably get struck off though!

You feel a pain in your knee, and the first thing you think is to report it in the bug's forum.

You get to work and the first thing you say is "I won the Premier League!"

Your boss looks at with a certain concern about your mental health.

You play the opening bars of the Champions League Final, music as you walk into your living room {that is suddenly transformed into an 80.000 seater stadium} pretending that your team is walking behind you. You are dressed in your suit as the manager who has led your team to the Champions Cup Final {As I did with Liverpool in 2012 hahaha} You stick out your hand pretending to shake hands with all the dignitries that are walking slowly down the line.

When you have a speaking and listening coursework speech in English and you haven't prepared one, so you go in and end up talking about your illustrious career as a football manager where they named a stadium after you

I was coming up with revolutionary tactics, like 2 DC's with nobody else in the backline. Well, may not be revolutionary but it sure did not work :D
