Simple thread really. When it comes to starting a new game and entering your information, do you choose your own name? Or do you decide to mix it up a bit and invent one for the fun of it?

I've always used my own name. Nothing like seeing your own name up in lights after winning something!

Kenco The Kencoman.

Then when I get a new stadium, it's called The Kencoman Stadium.

Does your name have anything to do with coffee?

I use the name Tom Healy. I usually make a player named after myself and give him a really low PA and really high CA and see if I can make him a world class player.

I use this. My current manager persona is called Pacey Moore :D

I tried that just now and here's what I got: Ernie Kaeden Johan Tyriq Arts :D

Well aren't you the smart one. How do you know you'll get a new stadium? :p

But did von Moltke know anything about football?

I like to keep things seeming as realistic as possible, so I use the editor to retire a staff member or old player and then use their name/picture.

He loved it. He is undefeated against French sides and horrible playing in the Russian winters.

I make up a manager, I usually go as far as making up a little background info on them to make me feel more of a nerd.

My current manager's name is Jez Horton.

Always my own, i've never considered any other option, what do you do?

I split it 50/50, sometimes I do and sometimes I don't.

Right now I'm ex-Irish international Micky Douglas!

Why wouldn't I be Fangore Chumpknuckle?

I like making up names and giving my manager a bit of persona. I'd never play as myself.

Nope, I go with some foreign persona..

My favourite is Thijs de Boer but as I used that on my last save I'm currently using Leon Xenakis which I quite like.

I've got a German managerial prodigy named Gregory Fanz that I always use. I think it's more interesting to create backstory and things like that for your Manager.

It's a famous coffee brand.

Well aren't you the smart one. How do you know you'll get a new stadium? :p

Because I'm brilliant, of course. :)

Your worst opinion list must have bad tastes. ;)

I use Ricky Nakano. It's not my real name though. Other names I would use but I have never used on a save on the forums are:

Lee Ji-Geon (South Korean)

Lee Chi-Kin (China/HK)

Lee isn't my real surname but it's common in both countries so I keep it like that. Ji-Geon and Chi-Kin are my real Korean/Chinese name though.

Once i choose "Rui Costa" for my manager name, because i want to do a save where i manage Benfica, Fiorentina and Milan. Unfortunately a crash dump after 2 seasons bring the "project" to the ground! :(

My own first name and my middle name as surname when playing LLM. I'll use an ex-player's name if starting a little higher - I think I've been Neil Webb and Lionel Morgan in the past. Currently I'm Lee Griffiths, who was a regen Welsh international that went from BSP to PL with my Kingstonian side. When I retired my 1st manager (nowhere available I felt it was realistic to go after managing England) I created him as my continuation.
