The Football Manager Football Show

Are we overthinking Football Manager?

As Robbie brought Porto to a second-place finish in Portugal last season, Shane is considering adopting his philosophy - one formation, one tactic, one lineup, one mission for the season.

This week on the podcast we're wrapping up pre-season in Germany ahead of the opening of the DFB-Pokal and the first round of league action. Man United and Chelsea are coming to town to help Augsburg and Frankfurt wrap up August while Robbie's hoping to attract some Scottish Premier League talent over to Koln for the season.

Pre-season routines are questioned, transfer business gets wrapped up early and wouldn't you know it, the subject of Liverpool's 7-0 win over Man United raises its heads with some actual football talk for the first time in quite some time.

Contains strong language.
