Footballers who play FM and a celebrity or two.

Recommended Posts

Just been onto my twitter and a certain Magnus Wolff Eikrem ( man utd reserve captain) has posted how he can't wait for the release of FM 2011, which got me wondering does anybody know of other Footballers or celebrities that play the game?

Oh yeah I also know of Jason manford (British comedian, for the non-British FMers) as an avid player of the game.

Robbia Williams that's quite high profile really, I'm sure I heard on the last podcast the team discussing a player, Rooney I think allegedly saying at an EA Sports interview that the one game he was looking forward to was football manager, not sure when or even if true the guys on the podcast said it was alleged.

Is there a feature in a football magazine (might be Four Four Two, can't remember) where they ask some questions of footballers, and one is always, "Do you sign yourself in Football Manager?"

Sure I read Ant and Dec play FM. Jon McClure from reverend and the Makers. Mark Chapman Radio 1....

Iirc Ant and Dec got special versions of CM 01/02 with them playing for their respective teams but one was on a good salary contract while the other was on a poor one lol.

I know wikipedia isn't the best source but http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Championship_Manager:_Season_01/02#Trivia
