Get it a few days before the rest of the plebs, post the pictures on facebook or fm-base (6)

I will just mess about with all aspects of the game though.

Just go straight online and strive to become the best player on the game (H)
...and fail.

Naturally, I look for the new additions to the game first, then I just start a Manager mode with Arsenal, get through at least 20 games until I'm up to scratch with the updated/improved gameplay - then I only play it when a friend is round.

I tend to attempt a few audacious scoring attempts in the arena, which fail, then I get annoyed and turn it off.

Get the game, practise a bit, then ring my mate, and see if he wants to come over for some game. say i only just got the game, purposely **** up for first half, then start playing, and hammer him, makes me feel big.

I'll play about 5 friendlies.

1st friendly would be something like:
Barcelona V Valencia with me being Barca on world class.

then I'll play the same teams on legendary.

I'll then go Liverpool and play United on legendary.

Move onto a mid table prem team against United.

Then I will go a League 2 team against United, if I win I will start a manager mode with a poor team.

* Get game at midnight at Tesco's after waiting for 30 minutes and discuss how online mode is going to be **** now Madrid are good with random people I have never met before.
* Put disk in xbox and **** Man United on legendary mode giving myself false hope.
* Go online, lose a few games, realise I am not as good as I thought I was.
* Turn off xbox after yelling at my TV screen.

Repeat cycle until after about 3 weeks until I become half decent.

Check for Partick Thistle.

Throw box around room when First Division is not included again.
So annoying, the Scottish Football league will get added when we get promoted
