    Come on Andy, you have to do better than that.

    The legend that is Kevin Toms (and his 80's beard). Football Manager was epic!

    I was never a football management type gamer, football, yes, management, nah..

    Used to see him at the shows, always a big group around the stand, about the same year I wound up Jon Ritman by passing by the stand as he showed the PC version off and saying something like "bloody hell, that looks awful", he gave me daggers and I smiled. Never spoke to him :)

    To be honest, I wasn't a fan of Match day, only 2 footy games for me, International Superstar Soccer (snes) and Sensible Soccer (Amiga), even the new fancy graphic ones just feel just about ok.

    Just don't mention Thorn EMI football, awful..

    It's amazing how the soccer sim has since involved, fella, but I agree - I played it to bits back in 86.
