The Last Roman – Part 29: World Cup 2006 | @FMCM_FC

Hello and welcome back for another special as we enter World Cup 2006. This year we enter as Holders after winning the last World Cup. In the Euros we crashed out at the group stage which was pretty poor to be honest. We aren’t as good as 4 years ago and we are still transitioning from that World Cup winning team. Let’s see how we do here. Let’s check out the group stages.

World According to Warnock Episode 12 | Forest Finale | @CornishZak

Welcome back to the 2000-01 season finale, Warno-brothers! It’s a two-horse race for the Division 2 title between our Nottingham Forest side and Stoke City. We’ve also got our first Wembley date on the horizon. Can new-boy Freddy Leon spearhead an end-of-season run? Wish me luck….

Shortly after Freddy Leon signs, another International, Salif Diao, joins on a free after being released by Monaco. I also sign Giles Grimandi from Arsenal as left back cover [though he injures himself almost immediately]. It means I’ll change-up my formation to accommodate. It’s a risk – and certainly harsh on the magnificent George Ndah who will now be pushed out wide.

World According to Warnock Episode 11 | Return of the King | @CornishZak

Welcome back Warno-brothers! Reminder, we are top of Division 2 after 24 games with Nottingham Forest battling for promotion. The aim is to emulate Neil Warnock’s success at Huddersfield in 1995. Let’s go!

 “When you’re my age, you do get labelled … you’re ‘dinosaurs’ and all that, ‘long-ball merchants’. I look at some of the teams in our league and I’ve never been as long as them in a million years but because they’re young, they don’t get criticised.” Warnock on his favored Champ Man tactics.

It’s boxing day – the lads are nursing hangovers, but fortunately don’t need to travel. We signed David Hopkin at the end of the last episode; Hopkin wastes no time embedding himself into the AMC role, and combines with George Ndah for a goal and assist apiece. The 3-1 win over fellow promotion hopefuls Preston is a perfect Christmas present.

The Last Roman – Part 27: All Hail The Roman Empire!
