Football Manager, one of the biggest-selling computer games in the world, is 20 years old. Football Manager Stole My Life celebrates the cultural phenomenon of a game that has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Football Manager Stole My Life lifts the lid on the cult of Football Manager (FM). It is an easy-to-read, highly illustrated, light-hearted guide to the game’s lasting impact on popular culture. We hear from the gamers whose lives have been taken over by FM, a game cited in 35 divorce cases in the UK. There are interviews with the players who become world beaters in the game, but in real life never make the big leagues. The incredible scouting network of Sports Interactive is revealed. We speak to the men who make the game, and put an FM addict on the psychologist’s couch to discover what 20 years as a virtual football manager has done to him.
