We left you with a tasty start for Diego Maradona in Naples with Serie A openers against Juventus and Roma. With new additions to the squad and a host of exciting attacking talent, could Diego guide his Napoli to the Scudetto for the first time in 29 years?
It’s the morning after the night before. I woke up today with a renewed vigour, like the veil had been lifted on my life and all was now clear before me.
I’d imagine that the majority of you reading this will by now have heard the news of what happened on that fateful night the 29th May 2032 at the San Siro. When two juggernauts collide there can only ever be one winner and lo’, how many times I have fallen at that final hurdle to be pummeled by those I despise and humiliated by condescending bastards. Yet no longer…
We had Fatman Doop from the ever-growing FM streaming community on episode 107 of the podcast. Ed had a right old natter with him on a big variety of topics. Would thoroughly recommend you give it a listen, they’re bromance grew as the episode went on. It was cute.
If you’re here for the community section round-up though, here you go!
Len, from popular FM community site, FMInside, joined George (and Ed for a short period) on the pod for episode 105.
Have a listen for Len’s top tips for players to sign in each position. If you end up signing any of them, let us know how they get on! Here comes your written round-up of the community section. If there’s anything you’ve read that you think deserves a plug on the podcast, just let us know at any time!
For a while now, I’ve been fascinated by Monchi. The Sevilla Director of Football is one of football’s best dealers – buying some of the world’s best talents for low prices and selling them for a high profit. Dani Alves, Ivan Rakitic, Grzegorz Krychowiak and Sergio Ramos are just a few of the stars who have passed through Sevilla, earning the club a major profit.
It’s a model that is often used in the stock market – buy low, sell high, but Monchi has applied it to football.
This summer, he is off to Roma, where it will be interesting to see how he will transfer his methods.
Episode 104 of the Deep Lying Podcast saw one of the community’s biggest YouTubers, Work the Space, join Ed for a chat on all things Football Manager! They discussed their usual save updates, Jack gave his views on media consumption across the community, plus what I hope will be a new recurring feature, Ed’s quickfire questions!
Have a listen to the pod, and while you are, scroll down and check out the community picks from the last week.
The Deep Lying Podcast train is rolling on, and episode 102 features the unique talent that is Jonny Sharples. He’s unique in a couple of ways. Firstly, he’s still playing FM13. And secondly, he’s managed perhaps the most famous Football Manager newgen of all time, Ivica Strok. Have a listen to get the lowdown on Strok, and the guys delve into the world of 2058.
Where have the last two years gone? George and Ed have hit episode 100, and it’s an absolute corker for your listening pleasure. You’ve got an hour with Miles Jacobsen, Mr. Football Manager himself, plus an interview with Mark ‘Chappers’ Chapman, plus the chaps take us through their DLP awards. If you haven’t listened already, then I’d seriously recommend you do.
There wasn’t a community section on the pod itself, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have anything from the community to plug. Here are your usual weekly picks from me.
It’s the big week! Episode 100 of the Deep Lying Podcast will be gracing your ears this Friday. Some of the details for it have been revealed on Twitter, so if for some reason you aren’t already following the DLP account on there, fix that mistake right now!
Before that though, here’s your community round-up from episode 99. It was hosted by Ed, and with George off gallivanting in Scotland, he was joined by two Scotsmen as replacements, Keepers and FMSamo (hey, it’s me, hiya!).
