Hahaha what a great post! It's hard not to laugh here at work :D ... I would love to see the FM06 post also...

For me, yes I have had some toilet seat press conferences - and also when I am out walking my dog hehe.. This happens especially because the ingame press conferences have become pretty boring now :p

Hell yes, all the important interviews are on the toilet or on the way to work, or even on the toilet at work sometimes, pleased i'm not the only one.

I have to admit I have loved reading all these threads- brilliant and so funny! I'm glad I am not the only one!!!!

I personally do the press conferences in my head also when I am on the loo, in the shower and also when in bed! The ones before I go to bed tend to be longer 1-2-1 interviews with a reporter and not a conference, especially if I am about to start a new season! I always imagine I am on Soccer AM/Football Focus talking about aims for the season and new signings!

Love the champions league music idea before games - will do that in the future!

I always am shouting at the screen when we concede late on and can't resist a fit pump or 2 after an important win! How ainimated they are depends on whether my wife is sat next to me on not!

Keep them coming everyone!

Now the game is in 3D I have taken to using my chair as my seat in the dugout and gesticulating wildly at various players to get my point across - sometimes pausing the game to do so. Fortunately all this is done in the dead of night whilst my wife, kid and the neighbours are zonkered.

I'm like one of the commentaters on the sky sports fan thingy. When my team have the ball or score then my voice is happy, and if they tackle me or score my voice suddenly deepens and becomes angry, but I keep on commentating.

BTW: Champions League idea is brilliant... not so sure about the suit tho. Mind you I never play fooma(my name for fm) when im not dressed.

I do press conferences out loud when I am driving somewhere. When I am taking a shower I do it also and when I am taking a dump. I know I am bored.

when one of my strikers who had a finishing stat of 1 scored i was tempted to break into an obafami martins esque celebration thought better of it though. :D

I dont think there is enough room in the bog. :D

I get weird looks in college when I'm playing as I get so animated during the matches.

I got told to ssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhh today, cause I said Argentinian W**kers out loud, when new signing Zuculini siffered an injury in training and the international manager played him for 3 games until he got properly injured.

when subbing a player i tend to go 'well done lad' or 'nae luck' or if im in a cream puff i go 'good effort but your absolutely useless'

i do the 'touchline' orders and i got st johnstone to the challenge cup final so i put my saints top, scarf and jester hat on to roar them on to success :)

Kinnear should practise some interviews in his head - then he might not litter the real ones with gaffes! :D

One bloke rang in and said he was playing as Everton and won the FA Cup or something, and he wanted his wife to interview him as David Moyes, with his mother-in-law playing Alan Stubbs...

I had visions of his mother-in-law sitting there dressed as Alan Stubbs lol made me laugh out loud, how surreal.

PS I don't go that far but i do the press conference in the head thing :o

I find myself cursing at the referee quite a bit too, as some of these fouls look like leg breaking tackles in this new 3d

Vocally telling my wingers to get at the opposing full-backs because their composure is low: Check

In match commentary: Check

Tactical discussions with my assistant: Check

Post match MOTD-like replay analysis: Check

In-head or/and out-loud interviews re. new signings, pre-/post match, player perfomances: Check

European cup music before big European matches: Check

Playing 'Duel of the Fates' before a title/promotion/relegation decider: Check

I really do get "in-depth"!! Sometimes I even mix up real life squads (I once swore blind that Dejan Stankovic had moved to AC Milan for £11 million). Nice to know I'm not the only one with a few screws loose!

I'm going to let you all in on a little secret. I find the best way to wake up of a morning, when I'm really struggling, is to do a little in-head FM press conference.

I await your mockery.

On more than one occasion I have been unable to sleep at night because I have been thinking about my current save :rolleyes:

i have commentated on matches, but i have done that whilst watching actual football matches, its much more enjoyable, not to mention sliding down the touchline (my landing) after seeing the 17 year old sub score a 35 yarder.

When I manage a team abroad I regularly get invited back to my homecountry (belgium) to feature in talkshows with famous hosts. They ask me questions about individual players and upcoming transfers and then I have to bite my tongue, so I wouldn't upset any of my players. :s

On the toilet seat I usually have my board meetings where we evaluate the individual players and decide for which positions I need new players (young or immediately usable) and which players i can put on the transfer list.

I've read some crazy things here. Good to know some people are even worse then me :D

This week I was watching the Liverpool Champions league game while playing my FM games.

Confused my housemate as they couldn't work why I shouted 'For gods sake! that's ridiculous' while the match was at halftime. I had to explain to her I was shouting at Super Mario... that confused her even more. Once fully explained it just provoked a big sigh and an almost condescending smile.

I spend my time at work pretending I'm on a featurette on Football Focus, we're hanging out shooting the breeze talking about how great I am...

Then a customer comes in and I slowly slip from my dream to the madness of the real world...

Reality really does blow...

i like to do my in-head interviews Jose Mourinho style...'Are you pleased with the 3-0 win over Man utd?'

'I'm fairly happy yes, i think that because i am the special one and i knew that the game would be won by the 52nd minute they never had a chance'

i also like a bit of a celebration after important goals....a run around the room....the occasional flip..... not to mention throwing things around when i get an unfair decision or lose a match i should have coasted....i once threw an ikea stool at my wall after losing CL final to liverpool after victor valdes scored an own goal from a free kick in the area....i like to keep the now broken stool near to my computer to remind that i really don't like losing, not to mention its very handy to throw again when i do inevitably lose with Huddersfield Town

I have the virus. I never actually thought other people did it though. Whilst trying to get to sleep, in the shower and driving are my favourite places.

I'm always being interviewed whilst I'm on the loo, in the bath, in bed and going to and from work. Nothing prepares you for the media intrusion!!!

I love the idea of the Champions League music - that's brilliant!

I wonder what the Johnstones Paint Trophy music is..

Does the JPT even have music?

And yeah I have press confrences in the most random places. In fact I had about my new board and the upcoming everton match before while my dad was talking to me! I have no idea what he said now....

I commentate, as the 'bar' down the bottom is poor.

I clap when I score important goals.

I shout at the ref when he sends a player of mines of quickly.

I shout at the ref when he doesn't give a double yellow.

I shout at the linesman when he is 'blind'.

Apart from that, I don't do anything else... But the conference in my head is encouraging. =D

All the time, commentate on games to myself too... After a good win I usually clap the fans (the bookcase behind me). Anyone else shout instructions from the sidelines with 'typical manager poses'. Thank God for this thread, I know i'm not alone now.

LOL,,,youve got to clap the fans after a game,,i usually do it as im leaving the room to go to a press conference (or going for a dump in the bog). I do the interviews etc..in my head as i'm walking around aswell. I think its all part of the addiction to football manager i have.
