If Football Manger was a song?

36 posts in this topic

It would be "Little By Little" by Oasis

"Little by little, the wheels of your life are slowly falling off"

Joking aside for the first time ever people are slowly turning their back on Pro Evo and turning to Fifa, after Fifa have made a giant leap forward with this years release. (I'm not one of those people yet) I fear CM is gonna hit back this year after some quite awful efforts. Has anyone seen the leaked 3D graphics for CM? Amazing.

"Tubthumping" by Chambawamba.

"I get knocked down, but I get up again. You're never gonna keep me down!"

I hate that song so much.

Maybe the 3D engine looks a bit better, but CM is crap anyways.

FM09 ftw.

No longer confused. I retract my question.

Completely different. FIFA and Pro Evo have both been suddenly going in reverse directions over the years, it is an interesting phenomenon, if that's how it's spelt.

CM however seems to only be boasting a match engine, and even that was leaked. If the newbies here think SI are ignoring fans ,they should try the CM forums where they're so peeved that they're being completely ignored and the only info was leaked and they themselves are saying "Eidos don't care for the fans, I'm moving to FM".

The difference between the two sets of gamers is, however, that most moving from CM to FM will play it and stick to it, especially after a patch or two, whilst the FM to CMers will be waiting until the end of the season the game is recreating to make their decision, by then the final patch will have long been out for FM and they wouldn't be able to resist trying it again.

Nah, I woke up and realised I was silly to ask and edited my post. It all makes sense to me now! :D

God I hate that song. Baaaad Dad's appraisal of it on the Adam & Joe show was perfect.

Queen - One Year of Love - "Just one year of love

is better than a lifetime alone" "It's always a rainy day without you,

I'm a prisoner of love inside you,

I'm falling apart all around you"

Surely it would be something by Wagner? A completely overblown, self-confident, lengthy affair that is both loved and hated in equal measure.

Personally I'd compare it to Pink Floyds Momentary Lapse of Reason album. Not for the name you understand, purely because whilst it's alright you know they can do so much better.

The Smith's have a few songs that seem relevant to FM09;

Strageways, here we come.

The Queen is Dead.

Girlfriend in a coma.

I started something I couldn't finish.

Cemetary Gates.

That joke isn't funny anymore.

They have some songs relevant to the forums as well;

Bigmouth strikes again.

Stop me if you think you've heard this one before.

Altho it pains me to relate it to such a great song...

Metallica - Fade To Black

Life it seems will fade away

Drifting further everyday

In relation to the "injuries" issue though...

Green Day - Pulling Teeth

I'm all busted up

Broken bones and nasty cuts

Accidents will happen

But this time I can't get up

Still, i'm not cancelling my pre-order.

FM is a tired symphony

you hum when you're awake

FM is a crying baby

mama warned you not to shake

FM is the best sensation

hiding in the lion's mane

FM is the scene i render

when you catch me wide awake

FM is the dream you enter

though i shake and shake and shake you

FM's the best endeavour

waiting in the lion's mane

-------

A bit to much, perhaps? :)

If it was a song it would be that 4 minutes silence song, don't know the title or the producer, but it's a song with just 4 minutes nothing, and it counts as a song.

Why? because FM is'nt giving a crap.

A song where the vocals "freeze" appear may fit as well

I feel the song should be Michael Jackson "The way you make me feel"

The Way You Make Me Feel

You Really Turn Me On

You Knock Me Off Of My Feet

SI were the developer and the coders of the CM series and they went their own way from CM05/FM05.

SI took everything and CM only had the rights to the game look, design.

CM has never been better then FM since the split and never will.

Right as I started this thread I am gonna propose this as the official FM09 theme tune.

Rolling Stones - You Can't Always Get What You Want.

No, you can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

And if you try sometime you find

You get what you need

Think it fits quite well.
