In 1992, two dudes (Paul And Oliver Collyer) made a football management sim (in their bedroom) after becoming dismayed with the standard of football management sims of the time. Since then, Football Manager’s (formerly known as Championship Manager) formula and game play has not changed much since. Good thing. To the casual observer, FM (as Football Manager will be known from now on), seems like the most boring game since ‘Mr Boring’s Really Boring Game for Dullards’ was released in 1978. However, this is the reason men have been –
* Late to dinners with their other halves
* Taken sick days from work and university
* Undergone severe mood swings (aka The Man Period)
* Disappeared from the face of the earth for around 3 days (on average). Among many more.
