When your away from, the game and you get an A4 sheet and write a 1st eleven of players you will sign along with where they will play when you get back and start your new game.

(I did feel a bit of an anorak though)

I've done that with Djurgarden IF! When players like Kallstrom, Chanko and Dorsin were there!

Commenting on your own matches.

Singing "You'll never walk alone" loudly before game at Anfield vs Liverpool. <- Yes i do that.

I use my notepad every 5 mins to write FM stuff(my thoughts)..I even get the pad to the bar... icon_rolleyes.gif

Was talking to my mate there. He said he used to be on a forum and there was a similar thread. A gue said that he:

Managed a crappy football team for like 10 years and finally got them to the FA Cup Final. He got so excited about the match that he went out and bought a suit for the match. When he got home he put on the suit and watched the full 90 minutes of the game LMAO.

Can't remember if he won or lost though.

This year for Merthyr Tydfil, Aaron Ramsey (Cardiff youngster currently scouted by Utd etc) became a legend for us. From the BSN upwards, now in League 2, still best player lol. I also saw another signing, Charles Ademeno, on Sky Sports News the other day and proceeded to inform the misses of his abilities.

Be careful when doing that, remember how much of a legend Bakayoko was back in CM and how pants he was for Everton. One of my mates still goes on about how I assured him it was an excellent buy.

...you give your mates £20 on a pro rata basis for winning the Pub Quiz.

..., after your boss telling you that you are underperforming at work, you go on the FM forums to complain about the confidence system.

...you watch cartoons with your child and discuss with them the pros and cons of introducing a 3D engine to the cartoon.

...you can't afford to buy some milk so you offer to add a 50% sell-on clause.

Haha, wonder if that would work?

*goes to the local Spar and returns with milk*

They returned with an offer of the milk for 30p plus 50% sell on clause, along with my best cheese and half a packet of jaffa cakes. Suckers. icon_cool.gif

1. When you have just finished your 3000 word essay that you know is almost guaranteed full marks after you've spent a week on it. You put in the FM disk and all of a sudden a sign comes up saying 'File Corupt - data lost'. You check, fearing the worst, and you find that your essay's just disappeared before you could print it. You take out the FM disk, look at it and say 'We had quite a scare there didn't we?'.

2. You go down the local park asking people their names, you then sit on the bench watching them and creating your 'Park dream team' (I ended up with two five-a-side teams instead.

2nd one was something that happened to me when I bought my first ever CM/FM game in 1999 (I was eleven). My Dad told me to go to the park and get some 'real' football manager experience to improve my performance in the game. I come home 2 hours later to find my Dad in what I thought was a boiler room. I go in and find him playing on my disk in the ultimate FM gaming room with posters and everything.

When you use Match of the Day on BBC as a means to not only scout your upcoming opposition, but potential transfers in the coming window

I'm bad for commentating my own matches.

One thing I do often aswell is that I seem to believe I'm actually a news reporter.

After matches have been played, I'll click on them and give a recap of the games like the goal scorers, and the even sadder part is, I do it all in an English accent.

You know you're addicted to FM when you actually feel guilty when one of your players plea's for first team play.

Haha I started supporting Gateshead for this exact reason, go the Mighty Tynesiders in the BSN next season.

You know you are addicted to FM when you see a team come 4th in real life and turn to your flatmate saying, "My God their Manager needs a headcheck, I won the league without buying in a single player last season."

Another quote heard this season was "Newcastle lost to Derby? What I even beat them with their lowly neighbours Gateshead in the FA Cup 4th round. Someone should buy Star Attacking Midfielder, or not have let Star Goal Keeper out on loan to me"

despite an assmans stats being perfectly fine you sack him because you had an "arguement". he disagrees with a signing or thinks you shold play so and so in left midfield.

or you join a new club and sack the physio because you dont like the look of him.
