Championship Manager 01/02 is a football management game, from the team that makes the current Football Manager series. The game originally released, as you may have already inferred, in 2001, ahead of the 2001/2002 football season, and as such, all of the old players are present for you to manage.
Simple, but effective.
Still incredibly fun.
Great tactical control.
Doesn’t have the quality of life improvements from current generations.
Championship Manager 01/02 is probably still one of the best football management games out there. It’s incredibly fun and seeing all the old players in the game is magnificent. The game still has a thriving community as well, with plenty of up to date databases ready for you to download and use. Definitely worth getting, especially as it’s now free.
