Only Football Manager Gamers Will Understand
19 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Since playing Football Manager, I have clocked up countless hours trying to be the best manager I can be, whether it would becoming a local hero or national revelation. Tweaking the formation, doing all nighters trying to find the best players I can afford for my teams, just to name a few things of what is required to become a top class manager, virtually.

Watching An Alternative Reality: The Football Manager Documentary makes me glad I am not the only one that gets sucked into the game that it has become and being able to understand how it's become a tool for real life football clubs. The documentary is well structured with the use of real life players, managers, staff and fans of the game to illustrate how powerful a game it has become.

Kudos. You really have done a cracking job. Will recommend to all Football Manager addicts, providing you are not required to do a pre-match conference before the Manchester derby!
