About This Quiz
They don’t call football “The Beautiful Game” for no reason. It’s a game that requires a lot more than just a good eye and a great kick, even if you’re just a player. You have to understand the strategy on the pitch, and how to adapt to different types of opponents. You have to know how to stay in shape and when an injury means you need to do the smart thing and take a break.
All of this is a mere fraction of the things that are on a manager’s mind on any given day. Recruiting a team means thinking not just months but years ahead, and planning intelligently around the types of players available and the funds coming in. It means finessing the concerns of wealthy owners who probably just want to win, and money men who really only care about who can draw a crowd or flog a few T-shirts. It’s a lot more complex than just going out there and firing repeatedly at the goal.
How you approach this process is thus a function of your experience and knowledge and tells us a lot about you—including your age! Walk us through how you’d build your dream team, and who you’d include, and we’ll guess your age with scary precision!
