Football Manager Live

So, back to our attempts to build a competitive team. Having won a few auctions for players we could actually afford - Zidane, Davids, Rui Costa and several other aging former superstars with over-inflated wage demands and creaking legs - we set about molding them into a well-oiled tactical machine.

After several hard-fought friendlies spent honing our tactics and deciding on our strongest line-up, it was time to face off against Miles Jacobson once more. Grabbing an early lead, we jigged around the room before sending him a falsely modest message via the in-game chat system - for “Yeah, we got lucky there,” see, “Mwahahahaha, revenge will be mine!” or some such crap - only to look up at our monitor once we’d finished typing to find that his team had equalized. Damnit.

With minutes ticking down, we pulled our flagging players back, forming them up into a defensive wall, only for an Adriano 40-yard blunderbuss to shatter our dreams of an upset. Clearly, Football Manager Live can be just as cruel as the real thing...
