There's something about Football Manager that makes it feel more than the sum of its parts.
It wouldn't be Eurogamer if we didn't try something new with the podcast at least every couple of years, so here we go again. The Eurogamer Podcast - it's back!
In 2008, aged 16, I signed for Lewes FC. The club was in ascendancy: newly promoted to the Conference, we had a new stand at the stadium (later paid for by selling our best players, but that's another story), a new Under 18s coach, brought in from the Brighton and Hove Albion academy just down the road, and a new intake of what was, genuinely, the best squad of non-academy players in the south of England.
Football Manager launches today for Nintendo Switch, Sega has announced.
