I'm 24 and i've been playing since CM 00-01, after a couple of my friends introduced me to the game.

I've never looked back since. :D

It did get in the way of school homework as i couldn't be bothered and wanted to play CM instead, but i did well in my exams so it's not all bad. :thup:

Look I am only 15, and have been playing Fm since i was 13 and was playing CM before that. I am wondering, do any other teens play this game? It's a great game but has really ****ed up school studies :p

hahahaa NICE NICKNAME!!! "Same old Juve always cheating"

i started to play 11 years old, now i'm 20...

35 now, been playing since the epic CM01/02 with the exception of CM4 which I wilfully skipped.

Absolutely loved them all to the point that I'm the one guy the boss can count on to travel places, after all, FM & Laptop are your friend in every train, plane, airport and hotel room :)

I was playing Football Manager when I was in my teens...

...but that was the very first Football Manager by Kevin Toms on a Spectum :)

Oh and when I read people complaining about SI's Football Manager 3D match engine today, this is why it always makes me chuckle...

Ahhh... the memories!

LOL! I remember playing that when I was about 9 or 10. Although, there really wasn't much strategy to the game. I always wondered if the same company made both games but now I know.

(Load "".......pushes play on tape recorder.)

Glorious.

Well I still have memories of playing Premier Manager on the Sega back in 1996 so I would have been 7... So technically not a teen in fairness.

It is probably just down to my age/upbringing but I can't get my head around people playing CM at the age of something like 6. Things have changed a lot since I was a kid :D

I think I`ve been playing football manager since 96/97. Guess that means I`ve been playing this stuff for almost 15 years now ...

There will be a time where I can say that I have been playing football manager games for more than half my life ;)

i've been playing football management games since the golden days of amiga. I remember I had one called "THE MANAGER" and after that I had Premier Manager and then I started playing Championship Manager Italia.... considering I was born in 87, that makes me one of the youngest managers ever at the age of 5!!!!

*ages a little more*

I was first introduced to CM2 by a mutual friend. I had been involved in a short fling with a demo of ultimate manager and was fascinated, i admit the stadium graphics seemed a dealbreaker. A brief sermon on its shortcomings and the signing of Salas, Zinho and Mbo Mpenza to Celtic on CM2 saw to that. Around this time i also received a free copy of premier manager, which was garbage. Addiction peaked in early 00's. 97/98, 01/02, fm05 and fm06 stood out for me.

Im 28. Played every version to death since the time of the Italy Germany France add on, 96/97 I think it was. 97/98 was when the addiction really took ahold though.

yeh look i really started playing CM when i was around 9 and my footballing knowledge is really amazing! It's a great game but takes up a lot of social time! And didn't think so many teens play it, as it can be a bit of a complecated game.... but good to hear!

I'm 20 (**** I'm old :() and the first manager game I played was 99/00 iirc, at least that's the earliest version I own. I do remember not playing it when I was 9/10 though. Think I started at around 11/12 with CM 01/02, great game, still play it on occasion.

There are loads of teenagers on the forums alone so you are not on your own. :D

For the record, I started playing the games around 10 years ago and I am now 21. CM3 was my first.

I played the old CM games from a really young age, about 7/8. Started on the Amiga with them - yes I'm a sad geek it seems.

Unfortunately I am now too old to remember when I started playing the game but I do recall CM3 as being the great leap forward in football management games. I was working at a computer games company at the time and remeber thinking how much better CM3 was that anything we were doing.

Outside of PC games, Premier Manager 98 on the PS1 was my first management game. Spent so many hours on that.
