It’s so close, you can almost taste it.
Talk of promotion is rife this week’s Football Manager podcast as we make our way through February and into March for The Football Manager Football Show season two.
Injuries are starting to mount, players are needing a rest, the African Cup Of Nations has dragged on but we’re hitting the business end of the Championship is Wolves and Leicester battle it out at the top of the table, doing everything they can to avoid the playoffs and cement automatic qualification.
Wolves have been blazing a trail but as we found out last week, they’re no longer invincible as Preston ruined what would have been a perfect January. Leicester were looking to close that gap to the top as well only for QPR to spoil the party last time out.
So this week, we’ll see how Ken and Shane are getting on in February and March with the added pressure of the FA Cup for the Foxes.
There’s talk of conspiracies, snitches, moles, players constantly in need of a rest, water bottles getting kicked, managers giving out over loan arrangements and rebels backing down in their demands solely due to possible promotion.
It’s a lot to take in but it’s a solid listen this week.
