It’s not all Football

Welcome to my web-site! My name, is Mike Parnaby, and this site is dedicated to my all consuming hobby, of Play By Mail games (PBM’s). Most of the games I play involve me acting as manager of a football team. It is my job to get the best out of the team and to plan for the future, by bringing in new blood.

In the following pages, I will give details of how to get involved with any of the games covered. Due to the high number of games I play, and the one I run, these pages will be brief as I simply don't have the time to write up detailed match reports anymore!

Many of those who stumble across this site might think that I am a sad character, who plays fantasy games by the bucket load. You would of course, be right! However, it keeps me happy and costs a lot less than a few nights down the pub! In many of these games, we do have regular ‘meets’ between the managers, and the managers tend to be adults.

Each game has a different set of rules, with some being more complex than others. It is one aspect that I find most enjoyable. Each game presents a different type of challenge and every team I manage has it’s own unique set of problems.

Most of the games I play are monthly turns, however one is much more regular! Tough At The Top (TATT) offers a great online experience of football management and the website can be found here!
