Anyone old enough to remember the original football manager that came out in about 82? The players were the England squad at the time and there was just the Premier (1st). No tactics, no transfers. It just used to show the goals

I think Forest Green signed 2 players today on 2 year deals one ex Morecambe... so a field somewhere near Cheltenham can afford more than a City the size of Carlisle... how low have we sunk under this shambles?

The first one I remember was Football Manager on the Spectrum ZX81-128Kbut there was Four Divisions with around 20 in. All the early games seemd not to include Carlisle for some reason. Perhaps they had an NDA out or summat. :-)

I was hooked on The Double in the late 80's and usually play CM 03-04 now and again where I've taken Northwich Victoria from the bottom of the Conference to winning the Champions League five years running without spending a penny.

As for Holdwsworth, I see him as the new Abbott-type spouting his bullshit only from a senior management position rather than the touchline.

Yeah I had that one as well, green cover, think it only cost two or three quid - a bargain.

The best 8bit management game in my opinion is Tracksuit Manager - won The World Cup/European Cup with England on that one loads of times.

Wasn't hard with the squad you had on offer at the time.

Used to love the double as a kid. Luckily we were in division 3 so you could get us. Seem to remember Sunderland we’re also in div 3 and had the best team by far.

There's only one way of life and that's your own!!!

A lot of the players in the Fourth division were on less than £200 p.w. Maybe that's where Holdwsworth gets his figures from.

I could never seem to get past Germany on Tracksuit Manager. [censored]. :-)

Strangely enough a pal of mine knows Kevin Toms, the creator of the original Football Manager and recently went out for a beer with him and I believe he asked him that question so I might be able to get an answer on that one.

Think he said he was a Torquay fan and he has just re-vamped Football Manager for portables and the likes.

My phone is an old thing, I insist on this as they are a hell of a lot smaller than those small monitors that people call phones these days so I unfortunately cannot currently play it.

There were only 20 teams in each league so they had to leave 4 teams out of Division 3 & 4.

Carlisle was one of them

I noticed that, I just wondered if there was a grudge or anything on his behalf.

As in I know who I would leave out if it was my game, Stevenage would be one.

Read this latest outburst of drivel on Facebook.

He must realise he's going to eat those words the second someone offers £50 and a chocolate eclair for one of our team?

He's talking like we're Man City when the reality is we broke even with the same level of debt as last year....
Is he really so stupid to actually believe what he's coming out with...the second we need £50,000 to stop a leak in the main stand or resurface a car park what do you think they'll do?
What have they always done?

Someone stuff a sock in his gob and gaffer tape it in before he really gets going.

It took a week......

What price the deal is signed off as an "Undisclosed Fee"
That's a contracted player being punted on a week after saying none of our squad need to be sold and certainly not sold cheaply.

Holdsworth reminds me a bit of the club owner from that old comic strip 'Striker' in The Sun where Striker was made to sell his best players as the owner said there was loads of talent up and down the country playing on Muddy pitches on a Sunday to replace them with.

Even those Sunday League players would probably be better off keeping their jobs than accepting thar [censored] one year contract.

The Scottish blood out of 'Sunderland till I die' comes to mind!

Ended up getting no-one
