Beating the missus

32 posts in this topic

Not literally of course. My missus plays FM and has done since FM07 she starts as Arsenal first then has a game as a lower EPL team. On FM10 she won the world cup with Brazil and got to the final with the Ivory Coast on the same save, I never won the world at all so she beat me on that one although I did win the JTP with Crewe and the O-League with the mighty Auckland City.

Now that I have settled into FM11 and am getting Fallout New Vegas for xmas she will be starting her game as Arsenal this means she will bag the champions league within 3 seasons. I am currently managing at Auckland City in New Zealand, question is do I manage a big club just so I can get that champions league before her. Do I manage a big nation to grab the world cup before her as well. Surely I cannot let her beat me two FM's running to arguably the biggest trophies in world football can I?

I know none of this really matter just thought it could be a bit of a fun thread. Do you have a girlfriend who beats you at FM?

Nope, she beats me over FM.

Can't blame her when I have been playing for 6 hours straight without bothering to text her.

My wife hasn't played it since CM01/02. We used to have some pretty good hotseat games but she lost interest in the game when it got 'too detailed'.

I tried to explain the very basics of FM to my GF a few weeks back. Needless to say, she went back to playing tomb raider on Wii after about 10 minutes.

You must have forgotten to mention that you get to tell guys what to do and spend millions of someone else's money!

Managed to get the GF and a mate of hers playing FM10 last year, only lasted about a week sadly. She started as Forfar (because she liked the name) and signed players who's names she liked (Danny Gay for example). Something tells me her heart wasn't really in it...

The wife will ask how I'm doing and that's it these days.

I used to play for hour upon hours and she'd complain we didn't talk so she got into The Sims.

Now it's her playing all the hours on The Sims or Angry Birds.

Just means more FM time for me and no nagging.

My BF tends to flit in and out of liking FM - you'd think his girlfriend liking playing it would encourage him more, wouldn't you? In fact, he's doing the ironing just now whilst I'm arranging my scouting assignments for the new season ahead. Bloody men!

Manage Barcelona and have Spain as your 2nd nationality, add new manager as spain boss and retire the same day. Have ur football experience as International footballer and spain should hire you.

My wife is decorating our house whilst I play FM. She used to play too but then our daughter came along and that was pretty much that. She still asks how I'm getting on and listens to me explaining stuff that has happened in the save.

When she asks how I'm getting on she always says 'are you winning?' Trouble is I haven't yet worked out whether she means the particular match I'm playing or winning in general so I normally just say yes or no based on how annoyed the game has made me.

Scouting a few players and deciding which one to buy based on how good looking they are is frequent.
