Championship Manager Podcast – Episode 5: CM3, CM99/00 and CM00/01

Greetings! Just a quick interlude from all the CM Cup action to bring you this month’s Champ Man on the Post podcast. In this episode, Ross and I are talking the CM3 series with Ash (CM_Hints) and desperately trying to remember CM99/00 and CM00/01. I speak to Chris Darwen about his career in football writing which started with a book based on CM99/00 and then finally Adam Hurrey pops in to talk about his history with the game and his new podcast. You can download the episode here or there’s a full synopsis below.
