Amazing podcast! We really need another season
Henkjankeeshenk via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 05/19/21
All the way from Eastern Canada thanks for the valuable info and the guest speakers tips. Got hooked on my Newcastle save since last year, still have to get the new edition fm21 as I’m still playing fm20. Great podcast.

This is a must for every FM-enthousiast, from novice to expert level. The short interviews with guests of great knowledge (often SI workers), the community centre with great tips, a book club section which has filled my 'to-read' list, letters from fans and the cherry on top: a short...Read full review »

First review I’ve posted and it couldn't be any more deserved. I love this podcast’s content and decided to subscribe to The Athletic which was a decision well made. Sad the season’s coming to an end but hopeful that more shows will be on the way 🤞🏼Read full review »

One of the best podcasts out there, has made playing FM easier and more enjoyable with hints that I didn’t previously know about. Really hope it comes back with a season 3!

What more can you want? Brilliantly done. Almost lost a star for Abi’s pronunciation of Palermo though.

The best companion when playing FM - asking the questions I would ask and on the topics I would like to know more. Iain’s wonder for the game speaks to me. Apart from his love of spending time looking at throw ins!

It’s just lovely. Iain is a club icon, whatever he asks for he should be given. If he wants more money available for his assistant manager wages, fine. If he wants more FM content in The Athletic and continuous FM podcasts he should be given it.

Brilliant pod for all FM fans even Aul lads like me who’ve been playing since the original champ man. Please more FM content
Francis Benali via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 03/28/21
I absolutely love this pod! Iain is a great host - mainly because he doesn’t intimidate anyone by being an amazing player of the game, he struggles along like the rest of us! The insights from the SI guys is fantastic as well. Every pod makes me just want to load up FM and try out Iain’s...Read full review »

There are only a select few of podcasts that I have listened to every episode of. There are even fewer podcasts that when I see a new episode, I immediately start listening to it. This is one of these podcasts.
AlolanMarowak via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/21
Love the podcast, very informative tricks and tips to help you survive a little longer at clubs! Set Pieces are now the first things I look the change at any new club
Ellosaurus93 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/22/21
I cannot recommend this show enough to Football Manager fans. I’ve been playing the game religiously since the old Championship Manager days, but after binging through episodes of this pod, it’s like I’ve been playing it wrong all these years! Set pieces, training, scouting - all things I’ve...Read full review »

A really good podcast. If you listened to this without knowing what it was, it just sounds like advice for running any real-life football club. Very funny and so many tips picked up along the way. Unique access to SI staff too!
Jamie Gostlow via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/17/21
I love Ian. I love fm. I love this pod.
Charliebd7 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/16/21
A great FM podcast that caters for players at every level of the game. Always picking up hints and tips every episode
Old school radio via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/15/21
Brilliant podcast, just the right length detailed without being overkill, set pieces have transformed my Hearts save! Biggest compliment is that it makes me want to play FM every time I listen to it, keep up the good work !!
Rico_1078 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/11/21
I was struggling to get into this years edition of FM, and this podcast has provided me the motivation to do so, as well as some great tips. Thanks!
Iiiiiiiiiiiytdkgvvg via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/11/21
Opened my eyes to whole new world of possibilities in the game. A must to listen too for any fan or somebody who is interested in starting.
NicRamsell via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/10/21
This is the kind of in-depth FM chat I’ve wanted ever since I signed Serge Makofo. Thank you!
AndyDan31 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/10/21
Really excellent podcast! Keep them coming! Also just took out a subscription to The Athletic as a result.
cole4ord135 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/09/21
To be completely honest I don’t even listen on Apple podcasts as I have the Athletic app. Listen every time a new episode is out. Love the interviews, love the chat, love learning about other people’s random saves. Tough to see someone else living your dreams, I try to talk to people about...Read full review »

Just recently found FM and start playing it for the first time, this podcast has not only being very helpful but also has made my commute to and from work much better.

Really great listen!
jontra208 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/06/21
Excellent podcast, great insight from the SI guys and unlimited humour from Iain. I’ve learned a lot about the game and in such an entertaining way. Give Iain as many series as he wants, or I’ll do it myself!
Dylan de Zeeuw via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/05/21
Iain has always been funny with the occasional good insights and in this Podcast he continues to be. This pod gives some good tips and insights into FM and it’s always interesting to hear stories from other players. Keep up the good work! Hoping my email gets read on the pod!
Bryan Rettie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/05/21
Having owned and played every edition since the early 2000s championship manager, I’d describe myself as a veteran. Who is pretty good at the game and consistory does well. This podcasts shows you can teach an old dog new tricks, and there’s real valuable insight to be gained. It’s evident...Read full review »

Brilliant podcast! I’ve been playing football manager for over 15 years and thanks to the podcast I keep finding out new tips to enhance my managing experience
JackHammond90 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/05/21
Iain is a fantastic host with a pleasant voice. He and his guests offer a well-spring of knowledge that will make you a better FM player no matter how experienced you are. I look forward to every new episode and can’t wait for more!!!
dutchgretzky99 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/03/21
Loving this show. Lots of great insight from the team at Sports Interactive and great to have Iain Macintosh back behind the mic.

The dream for any FM fan and general football fanatic. Amazing content. Keep it up lads
Kam Hoss via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/24/21
I listen to podcasts all the time but this is the first one I’ve ever reviewed. As a first time FM player this year this podcast has been exactly what I needed to lead Dundee United to a Euro Cup quarterfinal appearance. I can’t thank you enough Ian. This is just fantastic and has quickly become...Read full review »

I rarely review podcasts on here but I wanted to take the time to express my appreciation for this show. I listen and consume a variety of content in the community but this show has found its corner of the community by basically educating you on a game we all know everything about already.

Like a new gen breaking into your first team, this podcast has really filled out its potential and is a great listen week in week out.

Funny and informative. Will listen every week from from now on. Wish these episodes were a little longer. Hope this continues weekly for a long time. James Beedie from The Football Manager Whizzkids

My favourite FM podcast! Some good content out there but listening to this if feels as though we are the same having the same good days and bad days with the game. Some content out there is to much for the creators this is for everyone. I’ve been playing for many years and I’ve taken a lot from...Read full review »

I got out of FM for about 4 years played a little in 2019 and just couldn't get back into it like I was before. I’ve never even reviewed a podcast on here before. I made it about 7 episodes before you dragged me back into this pit of agony. I sit around “is this balanced” is this tactic “a...Read full review »

This is great! As a veteran FMer this is a must listen. The double act of Iain Macintosh and Alex Stewart are great. They are real professionals from the football world who genuinely love the computer game as well. So many of the things Iain says are true of the gaming life of a Football Manager...Read full review »

After recently having a period of time away from the game, I started listening to this podcast. I can safely say it has led me back into an addiction to FM again. The tactical analysis from people in the game helps and I particularly enjoy the ongoing German conquest.
TomasSmowton via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/07/21
Great pod, recommend once you get further through some of the game details you try and get more of the FM online community involved to share their stories
Johnnynohat via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/04/21
Quality pod, please keep this going, best podcast out there!
seb andreasen via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/28/21
