Friday 3 January 1986

Another day bashin' the chunky keys on the even chunkier keyboard of the C64.  "Yup, Football Manager again."  I commented, "pretty exciting stuff eh?"  Let's not be too coy about it, yes it was.  Kevin Toms, the creator of FM had written a really cool game and it did get me hooked.

My other entry for this day is, I think, oxymoronic, and sums up the life of a computer obsessed 16 year old who happens to be a fan of real live grass and boots with studs football.  My Mum had been to town and bought me a ticket for the following day's 3rd round FA Cup tie between 2nd division Shrewsbury Town and (I think 1st division) Chelsea.  Cost of the ticket?  Three English pounds.
