The Wonderkids – Part Twenty-Three: Can’t Get No (More Than) Satisfaction

Welcome back to the latest part of The Wonderkids. If you missed the start of season six, you can catch up here. We’ve made what we think is a fairly positive start to our third season in the topflight, but the board disagree. We’ve made one addition to the squad and appear largely to have improved. Only time will tell. Here’s a reminder of where we left things:

The Wonderkids – Part Twenty-Two: Blunderkids?

“Wonder…a person or thing regarded as very good, remarkable, or effective” …

Hello again and welcome to season six of The Wonderkids! What is remarkable is that we are still going, largely with the same squad (plus a few adjustments along the way) and achieving some relative success, dragging ourselves to an improbable title defence last season. All that alludes us now is the World Club Cup, the European Super Cup, The Cup Winners Cup (if we can finish low enough), the UEFA Cup (again, assuming we can finish low enough) and the Division One title which Wolves snatched from our grasp a few seasons ago. You can catch-up with last season’s finale here.

We’ve managed to bring one minus man in…

The Wonderkids – Part Twenty-One: The Long Road Home

Hello and welcome back to The Wonderkids where our minus men are closing out season 5 of their existence. If you missed it, you can catch-up with last week here. We had a torrid start to our season and started out in the bottom half of the table. Multiple cup-runs have left us playing catch-up and we remain 5 points behind the leaders, but this time with a game in hand and 11 games to go. Here’s a reminder of our position:

The Wonderkids – Part Twenty: Keeping Cup Appearances

Hello and welcome to the next part in our Wonderkids journey. If you’ve missed how our title defence kicked off over the last few weeks, you can catch-up from the start of season 5 here. Last time out we’d made some good progress during autumn only to lose it all in two games. We continue to wait on the outcome of the final two Champions League games to see if we make it through as best runners-up. A reminder of our current standing:

The Wonderkids – Part Nineteen: All for Nothing

Hello and welcome to this weeks Wonderkids. If you missed the re-start you can catch up with last week here. Last time up we started out on our title defence and our first European adventure. It’s fair to say it has been a rather shambolic start from the standards we set ourselves over the last 4 seasons. Here’s how we left the table:

The Wonderkids – Part Eighteen: The Return of the Curse

Happy Hump Day. We’re back with Andrew (@KingOfTheRooks) for your Wonderkids Wednesday, where the champions are about to start a Champions League adventure.

Hello and welcome back to The Wonderkids who are probably wondering where I’ve been for the past three months. Last time out we had stuttered our way to the Premier League title in our first season with a lot of the players not really making the grade…surely this means our debut season in the Champions League will be awful! We make some minus-man additions to the squad.

Summer Specials Eight – Playable Swedish League

But we’ve gone a step further and brought you a playable Swedish League too. You can download all the files you need here; just add them to the main file and ‘ba-da-bing’.

Summer Specials Seven – Manchester United: Battle Royale

Hello and welcome back to the penultimate CM9798 Summer Special, if you missed it you can catch up with last week here. It’s been a pretty daft ride so far don’t you think? What could possibly be dafter…well. In the first summer special, we tested just how good Man Utd’s defence was, cruising to the title playing no ‘keeper, but…who was the driver of this success you ask? Well, there’s only one way to find out…

Summer Specials Six – There and Back Again: A Tale with Georgi Hristov

Hello and welcome back to another episode of CM9798 Summer Specials. You can catch up with last week here. If you haven’t already attempted to keep Barnsley in the Premier League then you may not know how rubbish poor old Georgi Hristov was in the Premier League. But that leads me to the question nobody has ever uttered…could FYR Macedonia have made it to France ’98 and won the world cup with Hristov leading the attack? Well it sounds stupid doesn’t it? And that’s because it is. He couldn’t land a girlfriend in Barnsley so how could they even qualify? Here is the task at hand:

Summer Specials Five – The Orient Express: Bjorn Again in the Premier League

Hello and welcome back to the next episode of CM9798 Summer Specials. You can catch-up with last week right here. What fresh hell is he putting on us this week you ask? Well, many of you will have taken on Leyton Orient in Division Three for the much-loved Bjorn Heidenstrom. They’ve got a canny side and it’s easy to get promoted…but how would they fair in the Premier League…and the Champions League…well, let’s find out.
