As the description bit we just wrote for Eurofiles states: We don't normally post television ads up here, but this one is particularly amusing, and football related, and when you throw those two things together it's difficult for us to resist...

Yes, it's an ad for Football Manager 2005 from Sports Interactive, the London-based developer who brought you the Championship Manager series up until last year, and it features sheep and footy wit. We feel sure you'll appreciate it on a cold, sodden Wednesday afternoon in the middle of October almost as much as we did.
