RE: Arsenal Career. I ended up with Fulham at the end of that season, they had just been relegated from the Premier League. And I thought that about the narrative!

One once did the impossible guiding Arsenal to an unbeaten season on FM 12. I then lost the first three games of the next season and resigned in anger!

#FMconfessions Ha! Man that sucks, where did you end up? Losing is such a sickening feeling. Ever feel really helpless sometimes, like the game has it's own narrative already worked out?

How hard is it to resist the temptation to play ahead of real time? Really tempted to start playing in real time when I get FM16!

During midweek with no continental games, or in the case of a transfer bid I've made that I'm keen to know an answer to (so I can start to make new graphics) then it's very tempting. During the height of the season with midweek matches then not so much, as matchdays are a good 3-4 hours work. It's so much fun though. Getting through that first summer can be a struggle. My recommendation when FM16 launches (and I may reboot RTFM tbh), is to play as normal from June 1st (or whatever) up until the comparative release day that FM16 comes out then go from there! And blog blog blog it :D good luck!

Most of the time my FM games are more important to me than real life games.

I struggle with decisions sometimes. FM is amazing.

If you had to choose between a life of living in the slums with Praet or a life of royalty with Lucas which would you chose and why?

Praet. I'd go MAD with power if I lived like a king, and that wouldn't end well for anyone involved. Also, Dennis Freakin' Praet ❤️

Goals before girls!
