This could be Saints, or could be Monkey Tennis, but I'm plopping it in video games.  We're crossing the streams!

Most of us gamer types have spent time as a pretend Saints boss.   What shameful decisions have you taken?  Can't be any worse than mine in any game of Sensible World of Soccer 96/97.   I'd sell MLT and get Collymore on every start.   That game was all about speed, y'see.

What crimes have you committed in the virtual world that'd make you Branfoot's hypothetical evil bastard of a brother in real life?

Downvoted Pap. Replacing Midas with the Devil of Dogging is unforgivable.

I continued to play Andy Sinton against my better judgment in early versions of FIFA.

In very recent seasons I persisted with one G Ramirez, convinced he would come good and would ultimately be better suited to the virtual game.   It worked not a jot.

Every time you even think about playing a football game on one of those x-station things, just imagine MLG with his todger in his sweaty fist.

I played myself every time as play manager (cannot remember the game, but might have been player manager), you controlled your player only. I would go and get the ball and rarely pass, I dropped Shearer so I could play. 

I also created another team called Southampton City, who played in the top flight with Southampton.

Bah, don't be like that.   It's no reflection on Le God's real-life greatness.   It's just that the things he was good at you could kinda do yourself if you were a demon at ye olde after-touch (I was).

 The dude is playing Civilization V, believe me.   Good enough for my Steam list.  Too good for Sotonians, apparently lou_facepalm2

 In FIFA, you can create a player and put him in your team.   I decided to go for a life size version of me, complete with long hair and everything.   I would be the Muggsy Bogues of the Premier League.

Would I bollocks.   Never fucking again.  My second sin as a Saints manager is persisting with a short-arsed flop just because he resembled me.  A fucking hobbit as the main striker.

You learn, though.  All videogame football versions of me are at least six foot these days.

Game: PES 2017
Mode: Master League
Season:  2017/18

Crimes to date:-

Sold Boufal, replaced with Argentinian regen.
Sold Austin, replaced with Harry Kane
Sold Fonte, replaced with Alderweireld

That's the tip of the iceberg.  I've ended more careers than that which I will perhaps divulge to the authorities in exchange for a lighter sentence at a future time.  I hope they collar me before the next transfer window.   I've sold remorselessly before, and I'll do it again.

Sold Mane to Spurs in my current game of Fifa 16. Think the fans would have backed me though as he only had 1 goal by January. He's been shit for Spurs since the move, which helps too.

Sold Ricky Lambert to Duisburg for about 300k in a previous version of Fifa, but he was past it by then.

I don't play games where they have the rights to the names of players or the compition. I have players like Tajic, haustin, redmand and Fount. 

I also play in the FC Cup. Took me a while to realise it was called this. 

Oh on the Subuteo front, I had the whole set when younger, but very rarely played it. Uesed to spend ages setting all up, then either having crowd trouble or sprayed the pitch with my mothers plant sprayer, so the pitch was waterlogged. Also I used my floodlights and they melted from the heat they generated.

Tadic has been sold, replaced with Chelsea's Oscar.

Rodriguez flogged and replaced with Raheem Sterling.
