    This week on The Sports Agents, Gareth Southgate resigned following England's Euro 2024 final defeat, and the world's best golfers tee'd it up for the 152nd Open Championship...
    The man who hired Gareth, former FA Managing Director Martin Glenn, joined Gabby & Mark for an insight into the process of finding his replacement and The Athletic's Jack Pitt-Brooke joined us in the studio to help assess the leading candidates.
    After Rory McIlroy defended his own caddie ahead of his first appearance at a major tournament since his US Open collapse, we were also joined by caddies Billy Foster (Matt Fitzpatrick) and Jeff Brighton (Colin Montgomerie) to find out more about the mind-blowing complexities of the role and how much difference a great one can really make.

    Next England manager: Meet the candidates

    Next England manager: Meet the candidates

    After Gareth Southgate resigned while we were recording Tuesday's episode, today, The Sports Agents run the rule over the candidates to replace him...
    The Athletic's Jack Pitt-Brooke is in the studio to explain why Eddie Howe will be difficult to prise from Newcastle and why the FA have not ruled out non-English options.
    And later, as golf caddies have been making headlines (for good and bad reasons) over the last few weeks - and to mark the start of The Open - Gabby and Mark find out what makes a great caddy and what really goes into the job. With interviews from Colin Montgomerie's caddie Jeff Brighton and the incomparable Billy Foster - Matt Fitzpatrick's caddie this week but who has also been on the bag for the likes of Tiger Woods and Seve Ballesteros.
    Plus, Gabby reflects on the viral video that has landed Chelsea's record-signing Enzo Fernandez in hot water after he broadcast his Argentina teammates performing a racist chant after winning the Copa America final.

    Gareth Southgate resigns... What now?

    Gareth Southgate resigns... What now?

    England manager Gareth Southgate has resigned... So who will the FA look to next, does his successor need to be English and how difficult will it be to fill his shoes?
    The Sports Agents are joined by former FA Managing Director Martin Glenn - the man who hired Gareth - to reflect on that process, as well as, the true scale of Southgate's legacy, which reaches far beyond this summer's Euros in Germany.
    Matt Lawton of The Times also joins Gabby and Mark to discuss Eddie Howe's credentials as the current favourite to replace him.

    This week on The Sports Agents,
    We reflected on England's run to today's Euro 2024 final, Lewis Hamilton's record 9th British GP win and Novak Djokovic turning on the centre court crowd at Wimbledon.
    But you asked us to find out what's going on at Manchester United, after it emerged that the Women's side would be moved to 'portacabins' in order to accommodate the men - so we were joined by a host of guests including the former Head of Women's football at United, Polly Bancroft, to investigate a growing sense that the club's new owners simply don't care about the Women's game.
    With England v Spain on the brain and to mark two weeks until the start of the Olympics in Paris - a couple of TeamGB icons, Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill and Iwan Thomas, joined us to talk about how to 'peak' at just the right time for a moment that may only come around once in an athlete's career.
