    Football Manager

    I know there's probably still a few players of this out there.

    What's the last version you played? Do you have any saves running now?

    Tell us stories, or I'll regale everyone with my Champ Man 1998 treble of the League/CL with Villa and the World Cup with England again....

    Bumping this because I found my old FM2009 saves, which is still my favourite version of the game, where I'd turned Crewe into a European powerhouse having started with them and been there for a decade. I love that game, and now I'm carrying on with it - given that Crewe already start with great youth facilities, I spend a lot of time scouting young players to bring through, which has been really fun. Pretty much my whole team is regens from the academy now, some that I bought to join and some others that have come through the ranks.

    Man, I love this game.

    I played a ton from 2001-2004. 2001 probably being my favorite version. I've not touched it in years now though. It would probably be too hard to relearn the game again. haha

    So, like I imagine many people have, I've fired up an old Football Manager during this lockdown.

    The last full version I had was 2009, so I'm on that now - it's become a bit of a time capsule, and it's only just hit me that it's more than a decade old now.

    Carlos Cuellar is marshalling the Aston Villa defence. Portsmouth are a Premier League team (with 'secure' finances!) while Southampton are in League One. Man City have only just been taken over, so aren't yet an established title challenger as Mark Hughes, 6 games into the season, only has them in 10th. Dean Ashton hasn't yet retired and is still in Gianfranco Zola's West Ham squad, where the banking crash hasn't yet wiped out the Icelandic owners.

    Ever one for a challenge, I've taken over Bath City in the Blue Square South.

    Thought I'd shift this one over here, Oli - it's more like the right home for it and as you say, some other people might have the same idea.

    Been toying with the idea of digging it up. I've got a big lot of work to clear over the next week but after that I'll have more time so that might be a good moment. Still got several other games to finish up at the same time, mind....

    Ha, didn't. Must have been caught up in the net because his name follows the pattern common to a lot of spam bots.
