Centre Circle Podcast #21: The Podcast Bought by Far East Ambassadors05/10/2016 Duration: 46min
Come out of your caves and stretch your legs, because we're back on the air! The talking points in this podcast circle around the dark age of football as the Telegraph trap the England boss Sam Allardyce relating to bypassing third party ownership, but he's not the only one at it! Is football becoming more and more corrupt? Also, the sack race is won by Francesco Guidolin, the Swansea manager is sacked and replaced by American Bob Bradley. Was it the right decision to let him go though? In Football Manager discussion, Darren still loves to gloat about Celtic's draw with Manchester City but also loses his incredible winning streak, David tells the story of the Russian Christ rising on the third day to score a hattrick in Lithuania. Plus save scout, manager watch and Ben Amos.

Centre Circle Podcast #20 - Ingerland06/09/2016 Duration: 53min
After a three match touchline ban, the boys are back in town! On this edition of the podcast we analyse Sam Allardyce's first taste of international management as England scrape past Slovakia 1-0. Is patience running thin with Rooney? Is Hart England's number one choice? Also, the transfer window has shut for another year; David Luiz sparks differences of opinion in terms of his playing ability and how Sissoko going for £30m confirms that the football world is going mad. On the flip, Football Manager 2017 is out in two months - what's on our wishlist? But squeezing the pips from the 2016 version, an energy depleted Darren wearily concedes defeat to Juventus without kicking a ball, Gazza accepts his level is no higher than League 1 standard with Shrewsbury and the wanderer David collects more trophies and more frequent flyer miles in Gibraltar.

Centre Circle Podcast #19 - Football is BACK!08/08/2016 Duration: 46min
84 days since the penultimate week of the Premier League and 4 weeks since the Euro 2016 final, football has finally returned to our screens for another exciting season! Marking the prelude to the new season is the Community Shield where Manchester United and Leicester City scrapped it out with Mourinho's United came out on top by King Zlatan. We discuss if Zlatan the decisive factor that United need and analyse the start of Mourinho's reign, what clicked and what didn't? Also, the Championship restarted with Newcastle and Aston Villa suffering opening defeats - which begs the question; is the Championship one of the toughest leagues to come out of? Is it a graveyard for former Premier League greats? Elsewhere, Football Manager discussion revolves around Darren finally saved and reloaded enough times to continue his save, David is finding Luxembourg tough, plus how oil rich Arabians lure some washed up players to the Middle East in weird transfers.

Centre Circle Podcast #16 - Lincoln Red Imps? Who are they?18/07/2016 Duration: 36min
This week, in the sunny weather, we grill into Celtic's worst defeat in their history....to a team from Gibraltar, Lincoln Red Imps. Can Kanté complement Conte's mentality at Chelsea? And with 4 weeks remaining, who'll take the spoils this coming season in the Barclays Premier League? Bold predictions. In the world of FM, Darren jumps on board the Lincoln bandwagon since Celtic are 'too easy' and this week on hipster David's adventures around the world, we learn Armenian pronunciations in the land of Estonia. We also differ greatly on Pokémon Go and whether Pokémon gyms are better than regular gyms.
