MEN spend 60 per cent of their lives daydreaming about managing their favourite football team with unlimited money to spend on players, it has emerged.
Researchers at the Institute for Studies found that men spend up to 14 hours per day imagining they are an unrealistically powerful football manager.
Kitchen designer Tom Logan said: “In my mind I am Swindon Town Manager with half a billion in fifties on my desk. Lukaku, Bony, Cahill and Fabregas, they’d be the first through the door.
“I’d bring in that woman who got sacked by Chelsea as the physio and I’d hire my mate Martin as assistant manager.
“It’s what occupies my brain while I am sat at my computer, talking to customers or at a restaurant with my wife.”
Staring blankly at his monitor, he continued: “We’d play five across the middle and one up front but the playmaker would have to get in close to the forward at all times.
“I’d take them all the way to the Champions League Final and they’ll name the new stand the ‘Tom Logan’s End’ and they’d have a statue of me outside the ground of me lifting the Premier League trophy.”
He added: “I often get my best football manager ideas while at funerals.”
