Play Football Manager Live before everyone else

Wives and girlfriends the world over are rightly terrified of Sports Interactive's impending Football Manager Live. Over the years, the franchise has been responsible for the dissapearace of more males than any major military conflict you care to mention, and the prospect of the next edition going MMO could well result in a drastic fall in Eartth's human population in future generations. Still, when football goes online, there are more important matters afoot than frivolous breeding. Fancy playing it early? Of course you do.

PC Gamer magazine have snagged themselves three thousand places on the beta test, and having significantly less people than that on staff - as well as a magazine to write - they've resolved to give them away for the good of future publications. The competition is hosted over onCVG's site, and all you need to do to get in on the gameis sign up for a draw and get lucky.

Still here? No didn't think so. Ladies beware, the call of FM is a strong one.
