Signings when drunk

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else bought players while they were drunk?

Had a few drinks watching the football last night, woke up this morning with Messi joining my club in the January transfer window. Seems his agent knew I was in a vunerable position, and took full advantage of it...

I now need to rebalance everything, as I have Suarez matching the highest earner, and will soon recieve a £200,000 pay rise...

I was just talking to one of my friends about playing FM while drunk. It seems he had a "drunk save" once, which he would only play after several drinks. I'm not sure how successful it was.

Haha, Think I might try a drunk save.

Wish I had thought of that! Now my only save is basically a drunk save :(

I saw Kenny Dalglish buying alka-seltzers a few times, including 1st February 2011, 7th July 2011 and 16th July 2011.

To this day I hadn't realised the significance of these dates.

Very promising thread title :):thup:

I'd fear to be signing players who are worse than Messi, anyway ;)

Looking forward to what comes in. Nothing to add myself though...

As DM'ing signings go Messi is not a bad one, unless of course he's 37 & inury prone.

I've once woken up with a heavy hangover & a team missing my star CB pairing, turned out I had sold them for little more than their listed value.

Cheap, very cheap Kenco.

I had to get in there before a non-Liverpool fan said it!

I'm a bit (lot) more free and easy with transfers when drunk. Blooding youth players disappears out the window to be replaced with a policy of buying and selling as many players as possible. Often just because I don't have a Slovakian (...or replace with whichever nationality takes my fancy at the time) player. So much so, that when drinking now I 'Save As...' just in case. I'll not remember what I did so shouldn't get bored if I need to play half the season again. Though I do just normally put up with my mangled team.

I sold a player when drunk, he wasn't one of my best players but still important enough that I was regretting it the following morning. Finding a superior replacement meant that it turned out alright in the end.

I have a tendency to get annoyed & get shot of a few players whilst playing after a boozy session; that I really regret the next morning.

Haha, a few years ago I convinced my friend to by Nelson Cuevas for about 25 million one time when he was drunk. Nelson Cuevas is a baller though, so it was totally worth it.

I had to give up the save. Having a 29 yo player on 400k ( I gave him a wage increase after 5 games) for 5 years with 25% pay rise would put him and suarez on 500k each next season

I just cant justify the cash, even if its just a game its so wrong!

I think Roberto Di Matteo should add to this thread but I will do it for him - Victor Moses, £9 million.

I don't think I have signed a player when drunk, but back in the good ol' CM3 days I once free transfered my entire West Ham team in a drunk rage after a loss. And then I resigned.

Have a habit of waking up to a load of Brazilians with dodgy EU passports. Once whilst drunk I bought a regen simply because his name was 'Puma'.....6 seasons later he was the clubs record scorer.

Have you see Charlie Adam play football?

I think I'm more prone to singing Frank Sinatra on skype when I get home drunk than playing FM, and even if I have played some, no crazy signings I'm afraid :p.

I once tried to sign Mourinho as my assman and I got pretty mad when he refused to negotiate.

That was about the only thing I could remember the day after.

Not a signing but many years ago I played CM when drunk and fielded a team with a left back in goal and my goalie up front and didn't notice. That game didn't go well.

Bought a wonderkid from Chelsea for £120m, giving them my second option striker in exchange too. £180k per week. And y'know what? Worth every penny. Except for the pain in the arse that is balancing the books, but who cares?
