Another day bashin’ the chunky keys on the even chunkier keyboard of the C64. “Yup, Football Manager again.” I commented, “pretty exciting stuff eh?” Let’s not be too coy about it, yes it was. Kevin Toms, the creator of FM had written a really cool game and it did get me hooked.
My other entry for this day is, I think, oxymoronic, and sums up the life of a computer obsessed 16 year old who happens to be a fan of real live grass and boots with studs football. My Mum had been to town and bought me a ticket for the following day’s 3rd round FA Cup tie between 2nd division Shrewsbury Town and (I think 1st division) Chelsea. Cost of the ticket? Three English pounds.
