I'm about 60 hours in, managing Everton currently in a 2015/16 season, and I already understand why there's a documentary called Football Manager Ruined My Life. Any fellow near-addicts out there?

Been playing Football Manager/Championship Manager since 2000. I haven't played the most recent game. I am still playing FM2012 which I think is one of the best games in the serie.

I'm currently working on taking Louisville City up from the USL. I've got a pro/rel patch for the US, and it's been a ball.

I've won the EPL/UCL double with Chelsea too many times to count, so I wanted a new challenge.

I struggle with playing in the MLS because honestly, the rules are stupid. It's been fun to build NYCFC from scratch, though, in the saves I've done - the teams I've put together in the first season are surprisingly strong...

after I sell Lampard off with my first action in every save.

Yeah I've had fun building NYCFC from nothing. Won the title the first year as well. But I can't do multiple seasons of MLS. Just gets boring because of all the restrictions.

Anyone playing 2016? I think this is by far the best one for anyone interested in MLS. I felt like past games seemed a bit clunky with MLS rules and some of the players were undervalued. But you can tell they really focused a lot of time on MLS for this version.

I'm on my fifth season with NYCFC at the moment.

This game has consumed more hours of my life than I dare to count. Currently working on the Dutch league with AZ in 15. Good to hear they improved the MLS in 16, as I've been thinking about buying it so I can start a game there.

I started playing FM16 the other day. Used the club creator to make a new club in Scotland (and signed Poku and Tommy Mac as my first players). It seems very good so far, dangerously addictive, although prone to the occasional crash.

This version is a lot quicker than the older versions too - a week without games goes by in just a minute or so. And I use an "instant result" skin so it goes by even quicker!

I've never played but might check it out after I get through Fallout 4. I see there is a mobile version too. Worth checking out?

Also just noticed a pretty big change in this update when I was playing with the editor. They have us building a new stadium in Queens in 2018. Which is a very nice addition, as moving out of Yankee Stadium before was even less likely than in reality.

So basically the Borden Avenue speculation is confirmed.


As is Zlatan, I suppose.

Lampard just gave me a wonderful gift by deciding to retire 1.5 years early due to injuries. Football Manger Frank is way cooler than real life Frank. Gave him an assistant manager job as a thank you

Now to find a new DP
