You Can Play Championship Manager 01/02 With Updated Squads From 2019
Championship Manager 01/02 is renowned as one of the greatest football games of all time. The fact that thousands of fans are still active on the servers is testament to its quality.
From the great Maxim Tsigalko, a Belarusian fella I wrote a feature about earlier this year, to the original English wonderkid Cherno Samba.
This outstanding release provided many with some golden memories.
I often wondered what happened to my virtual hero: a Belarusian bloke who bagged me 50+ goals a season on Championship Manager 01/02.- Jack Kenmare (@jackkenmare_) May 15, 2019

But if you haven't played CM 01/02 of late then fear not because a groundbreaking update has arrived that we didn't even know about.
It turns out you can now play with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Phil Foden thanks to the guys over at Champman0102.
And it's free of charge.
This will no doubt give die-hard fans another excuse to play this absolute classic.
Football writer Daniel Storey stumbled across the 2019 update and quite rightly apologised to the people in your life on his behalf.

You can all have this. It's all free. It's a March 2019 update. And it's here... https://t.co/i72X7ctVfT- Daniel Storey (@danielstorey85) July 21, 2019
If you've ever associated yourself with the Championship Manager franchise then you'll instantly recognise the name Maxim Tsigalko; a £900k Belarusian bargain-buy who would guarantee your side 50+ goals a season.
A talented Minsk-born striker who would turn into the virtual Pele, this legendary figure would soon have his face plastered over unofficial merchandise, including t-shirts available in eight different colours.
Right that's it. I'm spending my Monday night rekindling childhood memories on Championship Manager.
