Two of us know far too much about football. Two of us know far too little. Together, we will create chaos for once-proud Premiership club Leicester City. Here's the deal. In Football Manager Touch 2017 (chosen over the full-fat version as it'll move quicker), we take control of Leicester for the 2016-2017 season, which is effectively working just a few months behind what's actually happening…
