Ep 2188: Ireland Beat New Zealand, Again - 15/11/21

11/15/2021
Another epic game against the All Blacks, another brilliant Irish win, and a full crowd back in the Aviva - this was one of the special days in Irish sport. James Lowe took a moment to send his appreciation to the bollockses who questioned his defence, and to talk about the weirdness of playing against his native country. We're joined by Andrew Trimble, Gerry Thornley and from New Zealand by Spark Sport's Scotty Stevenson to discuss how this win stacks up next to our other two victories over...

Ep 2187: Revenge Is Best Served In A British Style, Request For A Ken Apology - 15/11/21

11/15/2021
For more than sixty minutes last night, it looked like Ireland could be facing into another pretty embarrassing result against Luxembourg but by the end of the evening, any debate about extending Stephen Kenny's contract had been put to one side (even by Liam Brady). We reflect on a campaign that started out horribly, with Kenny plagued by terrible luck at every turn, and which ended with admittedly less-than-impressive results overall but a massive turnaround in performance levels from a...

To Contract Or Not To Contract, Kenny Context, Ireland-All Blacks A-Go

11/12/2021
We were joined on the World Service today by the crack punditry team of Richie Sadlier and Damien Delaney to talk about Ireland's performance against Portugal, Richie's Stephen Kenny contract debate with Liam Brady, and whether Damian himself would prefer to sign Kenny up again now or wait and see until next year. Earlier in the week we spoke with Shane Horgan about Ireland taking on the All Blacks in another Aviva sell-out tomorrow, and why the result doesn't really matter provided the...

Ep 2182: Ireland Play Total Rugby, Samurai Sexton, Sweet N' Lowe - 08/11/21

11/8/2021
This was one of the most aesthetically pleasing Ireland performances of all time, and even allowing for the horrendous performance by Japan, Ireland look like a side who are committed to evolving their style of play. We discuss Jamison Gibson Park's new found self belief, Tadhg Furlong the outhalf, ignoring hat trick scoring wingers for Man of The Match awards, Sweet N Lowe, and Samurai Sexton.

Ep 2181: The Moyesy Reprise Surprise, Liverpool Fragility, Man Utd Control The Narrative - 8/11/21

11/8/2021
The Premier League signed off for the international break with a bang, or in West Ham’s case a series of shattering hammer blows that smashed Liverpool’s creaky defence into pieces. Dean Smith and Daniel Farke ran out of time at their clubs, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer clings on despite a dismal derby defeat and a weekend that saw more soul searching for United over the true nature of their club. Jacob Steinberg and Miguel Delaney join us to talk about West Ham’s victory, Liverpool’s sudden...

Ep 2176: Nuno Out, Conte Hovers, Ole Clips Wings, Mighty Rovers, Pat Kenny Meets Mary Jane

11/1/2021
Goodbye Nuno Espirito Santo, hello Antonio Conte? That seems to be Daniel Levy's agenda this Monday, but as we have seen, Levy doesn't always get what Levy wants. Jack Pitt-Brooke joins us today to discuss where it went wrong for Nuno and where Tottenham go from here. We discuss Agent Klopp, Ramsdale the amazing, blunt City and will Ole stick with his wingless wonders? David Sneyd is on to give Shamrock Rovers the respect they deserve after securing a second successive title on Friday night....

Ep 2171: Manchester United 0-5 Liverpool, Neville's Defence, Conte's Candidacy - 25/10/21

10/25/2021
Fergie's puffed cheeks, Dalglish's giant grin, Maguire's hapless defending, Salah's hat trick, Pogba's red card, Sancho on the sidelines, United fans leaving early, Scholes' prophecy, Luke Shaw's self abasement, the record defeat - Man United fans witnessed the complete nightmare in Old Trafford this weekend. Dion Fanning and Mark Critchley join us to discuss Manchester United 0-5 Liverpool, Gary Neville's defence of Solskjaer, the mood for change at the club, Conte's candidacy and why this...

10/21/2021
There was Man United past and present on the World Service this week as we spoke to club legend Peter Schmeichel about his new book, 'One', and not-club-legends Richie Sadlier and Jonathan Wilson about the most recent edition of Ole Groundhog Day. Plus US Murph joined us after his beloved San Francisco Giants suffered a very special kind of heartbreak: Game 5 play-off heartbreak against an old, bitter rival.

Ep 2166: Saudi Newcastle, Coach Rodgers' Clinic - 18/10/21

10/18/2021
The era of Saudi Newcastle began with scenes of rejoicing at St James' Park, as Newcastle fans rapturously greeted their trillionaire saviours. Newcastle's days as many people's second favourite team may not return for some time, but hey - it's better to be feared than loved? We talk about the dramatic match at the King Power, where Coach Brendan Rodgers won the tactics and the mindgames. Rory Smith and Miguel Delaney join us to give their impressions of the events in Newcastle yesterday,...

Ep 2165: URC Big On TV, Ireland's Form 9 and 10, Berlin Memories - 18/10/21

10/18/2021
The United Rugby Championship is up and running, and judging by some press releases Eoin has seen, it's off to a flyer. We note the increased profile terrestrial television has given it, but there are also some things that might need to change in Irish rugby if the only domestic league available to us is to succeed, and whether that might end up being a pretty good result for us. We thank our Berlin super-fans one more time for our week over there with thanks to Aer Lingus, and there's also...

Ep 2160: A Competitive Win For Kenny, Goals For CR7, Synth Week LIVE From Berlin - 11/10/21

10/11/2021
The gang is officially back together again as Eoin, Ken and Murph gather around a big ol' Berlin kitchen table and record live in person like those pre-Covid days of yore. It's only bloody Synth Week Live from Berlin!! We chat to Dion Fanning and Gavin Cooney about the other cause for celebration today, Ireland's win against Azerbaijan, one which surely eases pressure on Stephen Kenny... for now at least. The win aside, the main headline from the match was the small matter of Callum...

The Captain Of The Afghan Women’s Football Team On How She Rescued Her Team-Mates From The Taliban

10/4/2021
Last week we spoke with the amazing Khalida Popal, founder & former captain of the Afghan women's football team, and human rights lawyer Kat Craig, about how they got Khalida's teammates out of the country and out of the hands of the Taliban. We had an amazing reaction from world service members to this show with quite a few getting in touch to see if they could help in any way. Today, we are making the conversation free to all.

Ep 2155: El Clasico Uprooted To England, Super Salah, City And Strikers - 04/10/21

10/4/2021
Salah's goal was so good even Mane looked impressed. We try to unweave the rainbow of Liverpool 2-2 Man City. Miguel Delaney and Gavin Cooney join us to talk through the weekend's football. Should Salah get his contract? Did Ronaldo join the wrong Manchester club? And are there answers for City's striking problems in the Premier League beyond Harry Kane?

Ep 2149: Penaldo v Penandes, Don't Sleep On City, The 'Give Him Time' Doctrine - 27/09/21

9/27/2021
It was a week of forgetfulness and brutal reminders. Bruno forgot to keep it down. Spurs players forgot their game plan. We all collectively forgot that Man City were the best team in the PL. Rory Smith and Dion Fanning join us to talk through the weekend action. Are Arsenal back, reaping the rewards from Giving Him Time? But then, how much time is too much? And are Leeds roadrunners running out of road?
