You Know You've Played Football Manager Too Much When...

Recommended Posts

I know whe ive played it too much because...

I start with a really random team like me i started with Dag & Red... And know im following them all the time and its great

CLassic this one i started following Rushden and Diamonds and now i'm a supporter and when i was visiting england went to see a game.

When you celebrate with a champagne shower following a playoff final victory to win promotion.

Beer is more likely, but happened

I also know when ive played FM too much when I start clapping my players when they do nice moves and go like " YOU ARE THE BEST MAN YOU ARE THE BEST ! i love youuu ! " too much love for a player from a manager... might get called ... something by the fans *serious look*

Every dam day.

You are watching TV and a player comes on from bench and has black skin when you have been thinking he is white all along. Example from old FM Freddy Adu. Example recently Mario Balotelli.

I always imagined that Robert Earnshaw was a reasonably tall but lightning quick white Welshman.

How shocked was I when Ipswich played Cardiff in 01/02. (I should have noticed the 100+ Zambia Caps he had on my 00/01 career though).

I'm worried, when watching games at Portman Road, that I can recite players careers for my FM game on 08.

I gave Krystian Pearce a one man standing ovation recently...

You recognize a 32 year old Port Vale midfielder when mentioned on skysports. Or when you take a leak and you're doing a commentary out loud for a close game you just won.

The latter has unfortunately happened on too many occasions.

When you still on the computer playing football at 5 O'Clock in the morning.

Also when someone like Yeovil in real life sign a player called Omidubu Odgyterilo (random)...and you just kind of tut saying "He's got pace put his finishing his awful" and people are thinking "how the hell do you know about him?"

You wake the rest of the people in the house up yelling "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" when Owen scores again you in the 89th minute.

I didn't realise I'd said it out loud :(

When your watching games of football on the TV and saying to your mates "he's a class player" and they look at you as if to say "who the hell is he" then you swiftly remember you're in the year 2015 on fm.

  • you think about FM tactics and good players in the shower :p

This just sounds like some strange sexual fantasies!

When you would give up everything (literally everything) to play that one final game. And then as you turn off the machine, settle down to sleep, you plan your pre season and lie awake for so long, by the time your off to sleep its time to get up :( damn FM, too addictive! I think this could be a fantastic way of getting people off drugs.

Talk to Frank...... no not that Frank. FM Frank!!!!!!!!

When you're on the phone with your fiancee deciding important stuff about your wedding, but you just keep mumbling "huh-huhs" and "yups", while you are staring at your squad screen and actually thinking "DAMN this woman won't hang up, I have Libertadores Cup semi-finals tomorrow against Boca and I'm desperately anxious to click continue and go to the game but I freakin' CAN'T concentrate with this loudmouth talking endlessly! Why won't the damn woman just shut up and hang up, GOD please take me now!!!"

:D

Cheers

You've probably played too much when you've lost interest in almost everything you once had an interest in. I rarely leave my apartment these days. Playing FM let's me forget my tragic and lonely existence. :p

When you watch United vs Inter and tell your mrs that Balotelli is playing for the wrong team and then proceed to explain why he is so good for United in a 4-1-3-2 formation

I don't think any commentator or pundit on TV has yet pronounced "Kuyt" correctly.

The fact of the matter is that the Dutch sound "uy" or "ui" (same thing in Dutch) simply doesn't exist in the English tongue. It's true that. I am Dutch myself and have had several native English speakers as English teachers and none of them could pronounce "uy" or "ui".

Gives a good impression of how to pronounce Kuyt. (notice that Kuyt and Zuid is the same sound)

You are getting an ultrasound done on you by a hot nurse who is constantly rubbing gel on you, and you still wonder whether you can gain 6 points on Sporting with 4 games left.

I couldn't help it :(

when you sign a teenager who turns into a great player, does anyone else have to trawl through the internet to find a photo, so that they can 'imagine' them better when you imagine your team?

Am I a massive loser?

The obvious one is when you can't remember what transfers are real and what ones happened in the game. I keep forgetting Chris Eagles is at Burnley and not Birmingham.

lol ;)

When you open all your windows to replicate a cold Tuesday night when playing away at Stoke! Similarly, closing all windows and turning on your heating to max for the pre-season tour in Florida.
