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.
Alternatively, you can search Man on the Post in your chosen podcast application.
Dave and Ross are joined by Ash, aka CM_Hints or FPLHints. We discussed:
- How excited we all were for CM3 and how it blazed a trail for the future of the series
- The release date being March rather than nearer the start of the season
- The new features CM3 had compared to CM2
- Ash talks us through the game having been playing it recently
- Brief chats about CM99/00 and CM00/01 but neither game hold any particularly strong memories for us.
Dave spoke to Chris Darwen about his journey from CM99/00 to Ronnie Dog Media.
- Jonny Cooper Championship Manager books written using CM99/00
- Starting a football writing business
- Total Football Analysis
Finally, Adam Hurrey (@footballcliches) spoke to Dave about his history with the game.
