14 Dec 2012 - The Football Manager 2013 Podcast 8
For our final show of 2012, presenter Ankur Desai and FM supremo Miles Jacobson are joined by two serious FM enthusiasts; the Mirror’s Darren Lewis and comedian Tony Jameson. Between reminiscences of particular FM successes and failures, they manage to take a look back at the managerial goings-on of 2012 and cast a brief eye forward to what we might expect from the next 12 months. Somewhere along the line, they also draw a direct link between Jose Mourinho and Mary Poppins and offer the opportunity to win a copy of the game (and a very special mystery prize). Also, for the first time ever, the podcast is interrupted by a 'news flash' as it emerges that Football Manager Handheld has just hit the top of the charts. What a great way to end the year.

Presenter Ankur Desai is joined by SI's PR man Ciaran Brennan, author and football writer Iain Macintosh (of Football Manager Stole my Life fame) and the legendary Arsenal goalkeeper and broadcaster Bob Wilson. That’s right, there's no Miles Jacobson... at least not until he dials in from a Eurostar train to answer your 'Ask Miles' questions. As we have one of the English game's most renowned 'keepers in the house, we look at why it is that so few goalkeepers go on to be managers, while also casting our eye over this season's slow-starting managerial merry-go-round and the challenges presented to the modern manager by social media. Oh, and we also take some time to mention next week's big event... the launch of Football Manager 2013.
