P04 – Binary Brilliance: Tackling CM97/98 with an AI Co-Pilot! | @tjmitcham1983

Welcome back to the cork-funded, AI-managed world of Uniao de Lamas. We left the team in mid-table with a slightly negative goal difference. There’s much room for improvement, but with the collaboration between human and AI management, we have the necessary tools!

Hello and welcome to my first blog as a bona fide CM2 97/98 addict. Let’s get the dull IRL stuff out of the way. I’m 40, a Burnley fan, and I blame my mediocre GCSE grades on nights spent playing Champ. Don’t we all?
