Sample text

Shortly after the epoch-defining front two of Barry Elliott and Scott McLean took Stirling to Hampden, I got a job on the sports desk of The Sunday Times Scotland and realised that I was not alone. Of the five writers on the desk, only one did not play and that was because he feared that once he loaded the game up, there was every chance he would ‘go native’. He was absolutely right, but part of me still regrets never seeing that sprawling database and the spider’s web of cause-and-effect decision-making overload this fastidious football mind.

Let’s be honest. Paul: You’d have made us work. Miles: Yeah, probably. Paul: Probably wouldn’t have done this [Football Manager]. FMSML: DID YOU GUYS KNOW EACH OTHER BEFORE THEN? WERE YOU GUYS ALREADY WORKING… Miles: I knew Ov through the game. I didn’t really know Paul, and Ov had said his brother was playing in a band. Paul wasn’t in the studio much, so when I was popping into the studio I’d see Ov. Paul: I was basically working at 40% wasn’t I? I was working 40% on the game and 60% doing the music, for about two years or something.

Yeah ‘88. Paul: So that’s probably five years. Five years of varying degrees of intensity, kind of as and when. I think it’s fair to say that Oliver put a lot of time into his document and sending it around. I think you got the idea that this was something we could do with, because we just played it with our mates on Saturdays didn’t we? Just around the TV. FMSML: SO YOU GO WITH DOMARK, HAVE YOU LEFT HOME AT THIS STAGE OR ARE YOU STILL LIVING WITH YOUR FOLKS? Ov: You would have left home. Paul: I’d left home.
