It’s time for Euro 2000! Dave and KOTR are taking Norway and Denmark to Holland and Belgium for the main event but who are in the squads? Dave Blackenstrom: Seeing as we’re sticking with this narrow formation I’ve “found” it’s bad news for people like Stig Inge Bjornebye who I have no need for. There’s… Read More Championship Manager 99/00: The Finals | @KingOfTheRooks & @CM9798
Under the watch gaze of Dave and KOTR, Scotland and Ireland will not be taking part in Euro 2000. Not to be deterred, our two fools have picked new nations to dash the dreams of.
Welcome to the first episode of Network 2000. Andrew & I have decided to play out Euro 2000 on CM99/00, despite neither of us having a great recall of how to be good on that game. As the game starts in July 99 we both start in the latter stages of the qualifying tournament, but… Read More Championship Manager 99/00: Network 2000 | @KingOfTheRooks & @CM9798

Hello! Welcome back to the third and final part of our trip back to 1996/97 in Scotland. Celtic and Rangers are tied at the top with only goal difference separating the two. It promises to be a fight to the finish but who’s had their spinach?
Welcome back to Scotland, where I’m trying to guide Celtic to the Scottish Premier League against a formidable Rangers team. So far though it’s Motherwell who are top of the pile but we’re not far off the pace. It’s very early days though.
CM2 96/97 was my first Championship Manager experience. Looking back, I wish they’d differentiated the game names a little bit. Anyway, I was 8 and although I was a huge enthusiast, I wasn’t very good. I remember starting as Newcastle on Christmas Day 1996 and losing a lot, despite having an incredible squad. I also… Read More Championship Manager 2: The Old Firm | @CM9798
