From the Archives: Episode 69, No Laughing at the Back

In the 69th episode of the podcast, Ed and George are joined by Matt Neil, Lead First Team Analyst at Plymouth Argyle.

Aside from making 69 jokes, the boys talk about FM17 saves so far and get the details from Matt about applying FM principles to real life to football (and why you probably shouldn’t).

From the Archives: Episode 63, United (Rantcast) We Stand

Every day for the next, er, 128+ days we are going to bring you one of the podcasts from the archives – yes, the good old days where you had the original presenters.

Paul from the United Rantcast joined Ed and George for a veritable amble through the world of Football Manager.

They talked top rivalries, save updates, Manchester United tactics and all the usual community stuff. But they also talked about the Tobin brothers, Iain Macintosh’s personality and about the benefits of having a dishwasher. As you do.

The Deep Lying Podcast Episode 128: Dropping the(foot)ball on international week

In this week’s “not quite as good as it should have been” DLP, Chris tries to save face and still put together an international themed podcast.

If we are honest, it might have been better not to bother.

Anyway, what will you get if you give it a listen?

The Grass in GrassNGear is back with another FM Tip of the Week.

We have LOADS of questions of the week.

@LongBallFoot is back with a community roundup.

Other than that, trust us when we say the original recording was top notch.

Episode 67: The First Q&A Podcast

Ed was a little under the weather last week, and George was in Germany. So we’re loading up this week with a whole bunch of podcasts to make up for it. And we’re starting with a super special Q&A podcast!

It’s going to be the first of many, and there’s a solid reason behind it as well. We’re launching a Patreon in the next couple of weeks, and we’re trying out some new formats. We’re ambitious, we want to impress, and you’re pretty much our imaginary board.

Episode 64: It’s Another Tactics Special

This time round we’re back with another special podcast focusing on the tactics we use in our FM saves. Well, George isn’t, he’s off gallivanting who knows where like some sort of gallivanting crazy.

Instead Shrewnaldo and Lee (FM Analysis) jump into the fray with their sexy Scottish accents. And it all gets a little bit late night, X rated, whispering into the microphone.

Episode 63: United (Rantcast) We Stand

In the first of two (yup, that’s right, count ’em) episodes this week we start off by clearing tea-gate. Ed does like tea, he just doesn’t like crap tea. And we’re joined by Paul from the United Rantcast. Who we offer a pie.

He also has a friend called Ed who he hosts a podcast with. And he makes weird stuff with puppets. The question of the week revolves around your FM rivalries, all to tie in with the Manchester derby.

Episode 62: A Look At The FM Engine

George and Ed return, and this week they’re joined by Daljit who has a lot of synonyms. You might know him as Bust the Net. And we start off with a bit of an apology for being useless last week.

Daljit gives us some background on who he is, and how he started playing Football Manager by accident. He didn’t even own a computer when the bug first bit him about a quarter of a century ago.  Continue reading
