    Football Manager 2009 Review

    I have a confession to make. My name is Iain Macintosh and I'm a Football Manager-aholic. It started with the original Championship Manager, way back in 1993.

    A Christmas Tale

    They don't do it in Germany, they've long since given it up in Spain and the French would be astonished if you suggested that they should give it a try. The Christmas football fixture list is a curiously British and Irish disease. With almost every other civilised nation doing the sensible...

  16. I was there T Shirts when.....

    Kevin Maher was subbed on Saturday! The decision was clearly not a reflection of form, maybe he was a bit narked after his yellow card and a risk of a red, but surprised you have not all commented and one of you have not seized the commercial opportunity to have T shirts made marking the...
