The Rewind Recommends: This Documentary Shows The Impact Football Manager Has Had On The World

Football Manager, the most addictive computer game in existence.

The game has had an extraordinary impact on the world around it. It has been cited as grounds for divorce, it has created cult heroes out of mere mortals and it utterly changed the game it tried to emulate.

Football Manager Ruined My Life was a documentary film released in October 2014 which examined the game's impact on the culture of football, its enduring appeal and its influence within the professional game.

The film features a variety of characters, some involved in football, some not. The likes of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Demetrio Albertini, Paulo Nutini and Jon McClure of Reverend and the Makers all wax lyrical about their love for the football simulation.

If you've ever spent hours upon hours on a Llanelli Town save, trying desperately to bring them to the upper echelons of European football, this one's for you.

The full film is available on YouTube below:
