Football Manager, one day at a time

This is the story of Juan Day, a first-time football manager making it big at a little club called Lincoln City, and a critique of the game series that has broken marriages, forged careers, lost jobs, stolen social lives, and thoroughly consumed its players' attention for the past 20 years.

"It is Richard’s writing style that makes the piece a compelling read...Juan Day becomes a vivid and down to earth character within a virtual world, and the players of Lincoln start to grow on the reader, really personifying what are ultimately statistical icons." -Dan Bolas, Soccer Gaming

"This is something that you should definitely check out! It will change your perspective about the game. Even though you have no idea about football, it's still a good read." -reader comment
