Is that Paul Cook narrating the iFollow ad at half time?
at 19:51 4 May 2021

Quite emotive.
Anyone used their phone to watch Ifollow?

And if so did it work? I’ve got an iPhone XR. Thanks in advance!
Got a feeling we’ll play three at the back today
at 07:08 2 Apr 2021

Edwards and Kenlock as wing backs. Don’t @ me!*

*Not totally sure what this means but I think it sounds pretty cool when the kids say it.
Looks like 442 out of possession
at 13:44 20 Mar 2021

And 433 in possession. They hadn’t had a sniff until that goal - really encouraging performance imo.
Could drive a bus between our two centre halves at the moment

Bit worried about the back of our midfield with Downes off
at 15:56 13 Mar 2021

Love Dozzell and Bish as players but neither can defend - as shown in that Plymouth break right through the middle of the pitch.

I’m guessing Skuse isn’t fit enough to play 60 minutes at the moment, would have preferred to see him instead of Bish tbh.
442 vs 433
at 12:29 28 Feb 2021

We know Lambert was told to play 433 last summer, so I thought it was interesting that up until yesterday he was playing Parrot (who I think most people would say is a number 9) behind Norwood and calling it a 4231, which I imagine is an acceptable variation of 433 from ME/LON’s perspective.

But yesterday Parrot looked like he was playing right up alongside Norwood and Lambert called them ‘the two up front’ in his press conference, making it a 442. Is this because Lambert knows he’s going and no longer cares what Evans thinks?
Was it 442 or 4231 today?
at 17:17 20 Feb 2021

Spared myself from watching it. Phil and the BBC described it as 4231 while a few others called it 442. Quite a funny climb down if it was 442! Didn’t know Parrott could play as a 10 if it was 4231.

And when we do get the ball we’ve got no idea what to do with it.

Apart from that we’re doing really well.

Watching the highlights reminded me that he was one of the few positives on Saturday. Was so unlucky not to score.

Think many on here were too harsh on him after the Swindon game. Not saying he’s ever going to set the world alight, but he looks a decent option at this level when fit, imo.
Question for people listening to the home commentary...
at 16:22 16 Jan 2021

Have you ever heard a co-commentator contribute any less?

It’s so strange - he just squeaks some agreement with the main man once every 10 minutes.

Very good on FM 20 - and that was a lovely ball too.

I was having trouble recognising our players and because the game’s not being covered on the BBC I wasn’t sure where to find a list, so I’ve made my own based on the commentary. Apologies for any spelling mistakes!

Have Huws and Lambert fallen out?
at 17:04 31 Oct 2020

Bringing Lankester on to play in midfield with Dozzell and Judge when we're trying to see the game out was insane.

Crewe might not have pushed us back so much if we'd had a bit more balance. Really weird decision for me.
Football Manager humble brag/question
at 11:09 28 Oct 2020

So I decided to buy FM20 a few weeks ago and I just got promoted to the Championship on the 29th of February in my first game in my first season. I'm 30 points ahead of second place, which is ridiculous.

I even haven't done any cheating - just loaned three players of maybe slightly unrealistic quality: Leko from West Brom and Millar and Jones from Liverpool.

I'm playing the pre-set 4-2-3-1 tika-taka and I've tweaked individual player roles. Has anyone else had this experience? Or have I just learned loads about football since I last played FM?
Am I the only one who wasn't too discouraged by Saturday?
at 10:07 26 Oct 2020

We didn't create much in open play, but we still had one cleared off the line and Edwards missed a header from about a yard out.

Yes, our passing out from the back is too unimaginative and ponderous at times, but we've got probably the best ball playing CB in the league on the bench.

He'll make a huge difference when he comes back in - I would hope he'll start either tomorrow night or on Saturday.

Add KVY into that (as well as Chambers has done at RB) and we'll look like a completely different proposition.

Yes, Lambert should have gone in March (or earlier) but he's here now, and we look streets ahead of where we did this time last season imo.
Gaps in the EFL's corona protocols - concern about tomorrow
at 13:03 23 Oct 2020

I'd be very happy to be told I've missed something here, because ultimately I want to see us play tomorrow, but at the moment I'm wondering whether the club has thought deeply enough about this.

There doesn't seem to be a sniff of doubt that tomorrow's game is going ahead, and I don't understand how that can be the case.

Here are the facts:

- Eight Accrington players have just tested positive for corona

- One of our players tested positive the day before we played Accrington

- The rest of our team tested negative on Monday, but we know from this case in Italy (thanks to WeWereZombies for finding it) that this doesn't necessarily mean they didn't have it, or catch it, at the time of the Accrington game:


If we've tested our players again since then I'm not worried - but I can't see any indication that we have. Phil, can you shed any light?

From what I've read the EFL doesn't require us to test our players again, but I would say we have a moral obligation to. If not, we could be responsible for lots more cases.

We’re letting him run it atm.
FM/Blue Monday question
at 18:22 13 Oct 2020

At the end of yesterday’s pod the guys mentioned that last year they did a run down of what people can expect playing as Ipswich on FM 20. Does anyone happen to know which episode that is?’ I’ve just started playing 20. Thanks in advance for any help!
