Episode 61: Talisca can do one

Ed’s back this week, apparently with a kerbang, whatever that means. He’s joined as always-ish by George, and this week’s guest is Kev Chapman.

Kev is a FM Youtuber and Twitch streamer who you can follow on Twitter. And if you wondered where that name came from, well you should listen to the podcast and find out.

Episode 60: Money Talks

This week George takes on hosting duties because Ed has spontaneously combusted. Don’t worry though, he’ll be re-congealed for next week.

But George is joined by Mark Bowen. Who’s had a lovely day full of work joys. He’s a relative newcomer to the FM community, but we all love some new blood.

Episode 59: Preseason Preparations

In this week’s podcast George returns and is super cruel to Ed with his first sentence. We think that you call that business as usual.

This week we’re joined by Luke from StatisticalApp, who can’t remember the last time he was on the show. That’s how memorable a stint in the Deep Lying Podcast hotseat is.

Episode 58 – The First Proper Tactics One

This week George is sunning himself in Spain, so Ed is joined by FM Analysis and Shrewnaldo to try something ever so slightly different – a podcast about tactics.

The question of the week is all about the roles you’d use for your central midfielders in a 4-3-2-1 formation. Do you keep your formation defensive with a couple of conservative picks or go bold and throw in an attacking playmaker?

Episode 56: The FM/Life Balance

This week Ed and George are joined by Mathias, and everyone’s not too shabby. Mathias joins from sunny Colorado, and they have a little discussion about some real life football.

The question of the week this week revolves around Euro 2016. Now the tournament’s coming to an end, we want to know which player’s abilities should be upgraded and downgraded because of their performance in the tournament.

Episode 54: Brexit at Tiffany’s

This week Ed and George are a bit sad because they can’t watch any football. And we might be making the whole thing a bit of a metaphor for a certain Brexit referendum.

There’s no guest this week, but as usual we don’t let that slow us down, or speed us up. Slow and steady wins the race, whatever that means.

Episode 53: Pat Butcher, Stoke Legend

This week George makes a heartfelt apology to the Welsh for getting a bit out of hand on Twitter. Ed laughs in the background and probably tuts a bit.

We don’t have a guest this week, probably because everyone’s busy drinking beer and watching the Euros. But that’s okay, we rarely let these things slow us down.

Episode 52: Football’s Coming Home…Probably

It’s the start of the Euros this week, and that can only mean one thing – we haven’t changed the format of the podcast at all. But Ed’s back home, so that’s great.

This week we’re joined by Ben Smith, who’s all the way over in Austraia. Even though his Twitter handle calls him ZeGerman. That’s not confusing at all. But he does explain it, so it’s all good.
