Welcome back! Season 6 is upon us here in Holland. The Retirement Academy managed to finish 6th, a sizeable improvement on previous seasons but narrowly short of European football. I think. I might be surprised but Holland isn’t as forthcoming with European places as other nations – especially when Heerenveen win the bloody Pints Cup.
Good morning! I’m delighted to bring you episode 13 of the only Championship Manager podcast on the interwebs. Three guests join Ross and I this week and you can download the episode here or find it in your usual podcast places under Man on the Post.
Here’s a synopsis of sorts:
Stu from @Stusfootyflash tells us why CM9798 is the greatest version but also lifts the lid on the background to his football flashbacks account.
CLM Chairman Nick Rowe and reigning CM Cup champion Rob Tait give us the rundown of Champions League manager – how it came about, the story so far and the work that goes into it.
Nick & Rob conduct the draw for the 2021 CM Cup, coming this May
Once again you can listen to the episode here – enjoy!
Good morning to you! Ahh the run in episode, which is really hard to get excited about in Holland because it is practically half the season. I blame the Pints Cup for this. Anyway, it’s January, the Retirement Academy are 5th, yes FIFTH and chasing European football. I hope 5th is good enough, I’ll be honest, I don’t know for sure. Here’s the state of play where we pick things up.
Hello! Season 5 is heating up for the Retirement Academy after we started a season by not being horrendous. We sit third, though there are 27 games for things to go tits up. We’ll witness roughly half of them today.
