This week, Dan and James are joined by Miles Jacobson, studio director of Football Manager dev Sports Interactive.

Skirting around our lack of football knowledge, this episode explores the use of Football Manager data by some of the sport's biggest clubs, the work that goes into adding new features, and demand for localisation from different markets around the world.

Jacobson also discusses extensively his experiences when it comes to dealing with death threats, and the divisive decision to include the impact of Brexit in last year's Football Manager.
