Description

"Johnny Cooper, Championship Manager" is a series of parody diaries written through the fictional eyes of Johnny Cooper, the new manager of Mansfield Town (in 1999!)Chris Darwen writes the book using the legendary computer game, Championship Manager, to create the narrative and then blurts out the internal monologue that many players of the football management series have whilst staring at their computer screen.If you have lost hours, days, weeks and even months playing football management games then this is a book for you - if you don't believe me read what has been said!"An enjoyable, heartening and oh-so relatable book for any football simulation fan" "Chris Darwen brings to life the all-encompassing world that is the mind of a @footballmanager addict" "This is a wonderful story, and for people who have spent more hours than they care to admit playing @champman" "Darwen’s creation takes us through an outstanding book about his time at perennial journeymen @mansfieldtownfc" "This book is a definite must read, for it helps, above all else, to reinforce what we all already know; it’s definitely not just a game!" "Maintaining the readers focus in a book that recalls results in a 46 game season can become rather disengaging, Darwen avoids this trap" "Darwen's creation takes us through an outstanding book about his time at perennial journeymen" @mansfieldtownfc"Great read, it draws you in until that you are begging for Mansfield to win!!" #JohnnyCooperChampionshipManager"Thought I'd kicked the habit but he seems to have re-ignited my love of @champman" #JohnnyCooperChampionshipManager"Absolute belter of a read! I really found myself getting behind @mansfieldtownfc" #JohnnyCooperChampionshipManager"It zips along with humour and well evokes the slightly studied banter of the world of football" #JohnnyCooperChampionshipManager"The book manages to express that internalised narrative that all true #FM and CM addicts create to more fully realise their experience" "This book succeeds. It's funny, yes, and light, but most of all, in a way you probably would never want to admit, it rings true!"The books are already attracting quite a following, many people are being taken back to the memories of spending time locked in their bedrooms trying to decide which formation to use, which striker to sign and dreaming of Champions League glory! So sit back and let Chris Darwen take you through the first two seasons of Johnny Cooper, Championship Manager.www.chrisdarwen.com@comeontheoviedoshow more
