S1 E4: Picking a 2000s Champ Man/Football Manager Dream Team, Ft. Cherno Samba

Nov 14, 2019, 05:30 AM
Rich Williams, Mark Holmes, Rob Conlon and Pete Farries gather to discuss arguably the greatest computer game of all time, Championship/Football Manager.
 
One of the game's greatest talents, Cherno Samba, also joins on the phone to reveal what the game meant to him, what it meant for his career, and what it was like being the man everyone wanted to sign.

We finish with another episode of Football Fact or Fiction in which Rich tries to guess which of the three unlikely stories about the game is, in fact, true.
