From the great Maxim Tsigalko, a Belarusian fella I wrote a feature about last year, to the original English wonderkid Cherno Samba.

This outstanding release provided many with some golden memories.

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.

He was a household name in the community but years after 01/02 was released, what has happened to this digital phenomenon? Did he live up to expectation and conquer the footballing world?

If you fancy reading about the man himself, then find out more here.
