Football Manager legends

You've probably noticed that one of us (me) loves Football Manager. I don't really ever have free time to play it these days, which sounds like a lie considering I'm always on my laptop.....shut up. Anyway I've had them right back to the days of my sexy Amiga and today I read about two of my favourite players from days gone by so I thought I'd write about it and that's what I'm doing right now.

Firstly Zlatan Muslimovic from Champ Manger 01/02 fame. He is about 30 years old and looks like this -
Look at the state of Pepe in that photograph. I demand a scientist carry out tests on this specimen and prove to me that he is a human. Muslimovic has been training with a few clubs in Britain over the last few weeks and it looks as if West Ham are going to offer him a deal. He's probably only got about 12 for stamina and 10 for pace these days but I imagine his concentration and team work are at least 18. He gets a 20 for sexiness.

Phillip Mulryne was an attacking midfielder who loved a goal. He actually started at Manchester United but moved to Norwich city to get a game. He used to look like this -

Injury ravaged his career.  Well that and his fatness. After retiring, he thought long and hard about what he wanted to do with the rest of his days. Then decided he wanted to become a Catholic Priest which I didn't see coming, especially after I googled "Phillip Mulryne" and some heavily-breasted, vacuous tart came up as the fourth image result.

Becoming a Catholic Priest doesn't just involve developing a deep love of all things God made like impressionable male children. You actually have to get a degree, which consists of two years of philosophy and four years of theology. Fair play to Phil for actually finding his "true calling" because it certainly makes a change from the usual alcohol, drug and gambling addictions that most retired footballers take up full-time after they stop playing. Different?  Yes.  More fun? Probably not.
