    Rip to both

    Know the name of the rapper but couldn't tell ya the name of any of his songs

    Remember Prince Philip for his outrages comments down through the years. He seemed a sound enough guy

    Damn you two for this :p

    Any football manager fans out there I do a football manager podcast with a colleague. Look into the management sim with two avid fans

    On episode 11 now after managing in Argentina we take a pop at the championship in England

    In last episode we played a live game and last 5 min perfectly encapsulates what it is to be a player of the game I think

    Love the game, but its a young mans game. kids and mortgage's get in the way. I need a good 5 hours a day to enjoy it.

    Great idea though

    Huge Football Manager fan but decided to skip 2021. I used to skip every 2nd year when I was younger but started buying them annually at 2016. The last couple games got a lot less playtime (still over 200hrs each mind) so I skipped 2021 in the hope that I'll get stuck into 2022 after a long break.

    I always loved hearing about other people's saves though so I'll definitely give the podcast a listen.

    Its been my game since I found LMA manager on the mega drive...... then graduated to Championship Manager (same game really as FM now) in 1998.

    Would buy a game every 1 to 3 years depending on the new features and reviews. Always top notch, but since 2014, Ive only picked up the mobile version in 2017. I wont play it now because I simply cant devote time to it and I enjoy playing it for 5/6 hours a go.

    But its, IMO, one of the most addictive, playable games ever. Great memories of taking Leeds from League 1 to Champions League in 10 years. Beat that Marco.

    just a heads up to those here, the Forum Games forum are hosting a new Werewolf game, with the theme being the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Avengers - Infinity War/Engame is coming on 16 May 2021, the 3rd week of May.

    So if you like Ironman, Thor and Co, and you fancy some role playing action, head over at the link in my signature. All are welcome and new players with zero clue about the game, you will be welcomed and coached on the game.

    Co-operation is a hell of a thing to keep yourself from going to jail. Either way assuming he gets the 4 years, he's ruined his bands, dropped from their record label, lost members, only has a drummer left I think.

    I'm lucky to have gotten thru college when I picked up FM ! Generally same as youself or Brad Maddox guy, 3very two years. Was not gonna buy this year as was waaaay to invested in my fm19 save, but a co-op option was to much of a pull for me.

    Kinda made it part of my job so I have an excuse to play now!

    Just got back into the game after many years out of it due to lockdown boredom! If you're after any US exclusives let me know and I'd be happy to help.

    Cannibal Corpse's new album Violence Unimagined is as brilliant as it can be, even with the change of guitar players.

    Really want to pick up the vinyl version, just for the alternate artwork.

    Cobain's death, even 27 years after the fact, it'll still have people wondering/questioning.

    Sadly one of deaths in which you think 'what could of been ?' :(

    Nirvana reunion tours etc

    If John Lennon was never killed we could of got a Beatles Tour in the 80's or 90's

    If Phil never died where would the History of Thin Lizzy have gone

    Legends die to soon but there work lives on
