I am 68, 69 in January. I have been playing this game since it's original inception under the 'Domark' banner.

I just found out something random about Domark, after checking out the company on Wiki. Turns out one of the founders of the company has the same surname as me :p

Wow, then I'm still a youngster, lol. All this time playing CM/FM and I still haven't managed to get my beloved Grimsby Town into the Premiership, maybe, just maybe this will be my year!

I'm 40 and have been playing since the first CM came out on the Amiga.

Before that, I played the original Football Manager on the Amstrad CPC464! and before that, spent hours playing Champions! (anyone remember that?) on the Dragon 32 back in the day...)

31 here, 32 in Decmber. I have been playing the game since CM2 in around 93/94 (can't remember the exact year) and still loving the game.

I think the time spent playing Fm is a contributing factor to my continued happiness with the wife as i can play FM for a few hours while she watches crap like Corrie and Eastenders. I thought moving to Australia would be enough to get shot of those crappy soaps but it seems not. :-(

Having just read in another thread about his mate looking like a grumpy old git (no offence taken :D) i was just wondering who is the oldest person regularly playing any version of FM.

For the record I,m 56.

I'm almost 25,playing since 1994

just crazy about the game,buying it every year

Fraz, at 45 I'm not even the oldest moderator. I feel so inadequate :D

I've played since CM 01-02.

I could never move to Australia, almost every species of Animal there is deadly, from Spiders & Snakes to Crocodiles & Sharks.

At least in the UK you don't need to worry about a deadly Snake or Spider sneaking into your house. :D

It's not that bad actualy but i live in Brisabne and most of them things seem to be further up the coast. i was a bit dubious to say the least at first after hearing about spiders that hide in the toilet bowl and bite you when you sit down, I have never seen one yet in my 7 years here thankfully but i still check everytime. Still haven't actually seen a snake yet.

Ha ha - true, but in the two years (almost) i've been here i've never seen a thing. Not even a deadly spider! They should make shark attacks an injury in FM2011 though. Or spider bites. Just for players in the A-League though...

39. Playing ininterruptly since 1996/97. I wonder how many matches, signings and goals I did. Probably much more than twice Trapattoni and Keith Alexander combined

I'm in the same boat as you then. Also started off my "career" with FM on the ZX Spectrum and played all the way though the Domark label till now. I'm 32 though. Was 6 when my dad introduced me to FM on the ZX Spectrum. I remember my first team, I was wanting to "be" was Oldham because I liked the name Old Ham!

I'm 34 and will be 35 in 4 months. I've been playing the FM series since 2004 (so relatively new compared to you guys). Before that, I played the FIFA series, and before that, the original GOAL! on the Nintendo for my footie fix.

Gamers never get old, they just get better.

im soon to be 27 and have been playing CM/FM for aslong as I can remember. Think the first one I got was the Italian CM... 95 I think? Could only manage Italian teams... remember Marco Veronese being a demon on that game.
