A MAN has fonder memories of the team he built up on Football Manager 2008 than he does about his first love.
Tom Booker often likes to think about the Leeds United team he built up from scratch and took all the way to the Champions League Final.
He said: “We went through a lot, I saw them grow as players and I discovered a young Anthony Martial before Man United did.
“You’d be surprised how many people are genuinely impressed by that when I tell them. And rightly so.”
He added: “And a word to the wise, in the next year or so year there might just be a hot young Norwegian player called Jan Oyvid Anderson who is going to be world class.
“Unless he was just created by the game’s name generator with a bunch of possible playing stats made up for him. I hope he wasn’t.”
He added: “My first love? I think she was called Brenda and I think she was nice.”
