Ep 1144: Leinster Stroll Through To European Cup Final, Munster Monstered By Racing - 23/04/2018

4/23/2018
More
Leinster marched imperiously through to a first European Rugby Cup final since 2012 on Saturday, but Munster failed to complete the Irish double after a massively disappointing semi-final defeat to Racing 92 in Bordeaux yesterday - European Cup winners Shane Horgan and Barry Murphy assess the weekend's action. Are Munster just not good enough, or was Sunday a case of some really poor individual performances? Whatever the reason, it was a desperately disappointing display, and a sixth...

Ep 1143: Arsene Questions the Fanbase - 23/04/2018

4/23/2018
More
It was a good weekend for Mo Salah, Ander Herrera, Olivier Giroud and Napoli, and a bad one for Shane Long, Declan Rice, Harry Kane and Mauricio Pochettino. We discuss the weekend of glowing tributes to Arsene Wenger, and what they have tended to leave out. What kind of manager should Arsenal go for after Arsene? John Brewin joins us to discuss Wenger's remarks after yesterday's match expressing disappointment with the failure of Arsenal fans to portray an appropriate image of unity to the...

Ep 1137: Are Man City Happy, The Greatest PL Team Of All Time, Salah Days - 16/04/18

4/15/2018
More
Manchester City have won the league and sponsors Etisalat have saluted the achievement with one of the great football videos. We comb through the many "How City Did It" stories in today's papers and talk to Howard Hockin of the 93:20 podcast. When Pep asks his players a question, is he always expecting an answer? And if setting a points record would not necessarily be enough to establish City as the best Premier League team of all time, then which team deserves that distinction? Jose...

Ep 1132: Patrick Reed - The Most Hated Man In Golf, Kilkenny Ruthless In League Win - 09/04/2018

4/9/2018
More
Patrick Reed won his first major title last night at the US Masters, seeing off a seriously off-colour Rory McIlroy, and rather more serious challenges from his American compatriots Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth. But why does everyone dislike him so much? Golf writer Lawrence Donegan joins us to explain the complicated backstory, from allegations of cheating during college, to arrests, arrogance and family drama. Michael Duignan said in February that Kilkenny wouldn't win another...

Ep 1131: Pogba Pops Pep - 09/04/2018

4/9/2018
More
As one bald fraud to another, Eoin McDevitt has pity for Pep's pain. Saturday was a good day for the Hairy Man, who heaped indignity upon the Smooth Man. Is there still hope of redemption for City after their nightmare week? As for the matchwinner Paul Pogba, where has this player been until now? And can we expect to see more of him in the future? We analyse the game with Jonathan Wilson: why have Pep's teams developed this unfortunate habit of conceding several goals in several minutes?...

Ep 1126: Leinster And Munster March On, Dublin Secure Another Title, Dele Alli Painting - 02/04/2018

4/2/2018
More
So it's never happened before, but after this weekend a first Munster-Leinster European Rugby Cup final is looking perhaps more likely than at any previous stage in this competition's history. Matt Williams and Gerry Thornley talk us through Leinster and Munster's thrilling wins over Saracens and Toulon, who between them had shared the last 5 titles. From Andrew Conway's miracle run, to Dan Leavy's almost supernatural performance in the back-row, it was an exceptional weekend of Irish...

Ep 1121: Andy Moran On Mayo's Survival Act, Wexford Beat Galway, Dublin Under Gilroy - 26/03/2018

3/26/2018
More
Mayo needed a win or a draw against Donegal in Ballybofey yesterday, and by hook or by crook, a draw is what they got. We talk to Footballer Of The Year Andy Moran about Kevin McLoughlin's wonder point to save their bacon, why their league form has been so patchy, and what we can do to get cynicism in the final moments of a game out of the sport for good. We also speak to Michael Duignan and Malachy Clerkin about the weekend's hurling, which saw Wexford inflict a first defeat in knockout...

Ep 1120: Rice, Rugby, Russia - 26/03/2018

3/26/2018
More
An international football weekend with almost no international football on the actual weekend means that today we are forced to discuss whether rugby really is the heartbeat of the race, as some rugby pundits compulsively insist after every big rugby victory. If the oval ball game has displaced all other sports in the affections of the people, why do Irish viewers prefer Mrs. Brown's Boys? After we speak about some of the international action, Emmet Malone joins us to talk about Declan...

Ep 1115: Ireland Are 2018 Grand Slam Champions! Sean Cronin On Our Mission Accomplished - 19/03/2018

3/19/2018
More
For just the third time in our history, Ireland are 6 Nations Grand Slam champions. And this one was in a style that brooked no argument - from the moment Le Drop found it's way over the crossbar in Paris Ireland were the best team in the championship, accomplished front-runners, comfortable wearers of the favourites' tag and worthy champions. Sean Cronin gave us that image of a bruised and beaten Mike Brown sitting on the Twickenham turf with three minutes to go - a fine, last-ditch...

Ep 1114: There Will Be Blood - 19/03/2018

3/19/2018
More
Many managers have spoken about the risks of criticising players in public. The players know when they've messed it up, they say. No need to labour the point, they say. Keep the criticism behind closed doors, they say. As his treatment of Luke Shaw demonstrates, Jose Mourinho takes a different view. But why? Is there a higher purpose to this, beyond making it clear that certain squad members will be available this summer at a discount price? Jonathan Wilson joins us to analyse Mohamed...

Ep 1109: Ireland Chase Grand Slam, Schmidt Wins 3 In 5 Years, Eddie Jones Unravels - 12/03/2018

3/12/2018
More
It's our fifth birthday, and it's celebrations all-round as we begin a massive week for the Irish rugby rugby team this Monday afternoon. Ireland are 4 wins from 4 games, scoring 17 tries in the process, and are now just a win in Twickenham away from a third Grand Slam in our history - so why are there still a few lingering questions surrounding our style? We talk to Shane Horgan and Gerry Thornley about the room for improvement still in this Irish team, the difference between peace-time...

It's the fifth birthday of Second Captains and we'll be bringing you some special interviews over the next month to mark the occasion - But first Eoin wants to know whether Ken is going to give Jose Mourinho the credit he deserves after a trademark tactical masterclass saw Manchester United crush Liverpool. Some LFC fans were spitting venom afterwards, others spitting mere saliva. Meanwhile things have got extremely shambolic at West Ham United, where the crowd apparently caught in five...

The Big Snow of 2018 is over, and after a weekend of sport denuded by the weather, we still have plenty to chew on this Monday afternoon. Team Sky, David Brailsford and Bradley Wiggins stand indicted again after the release of a report by the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select parliamentary committee which outlines how Team Sky gamed the anti-doping rules to help their riders.

Ep 1102: Glenn's Gaffe, Conte's Crime, Arsene's Analogy - 05/03/2018

3/5/2018

MY lapel badge is apolitical. YOUR lapel badge is a political statement. The FA chief executive Martin Glenn has already apologised for appearing to bracket the Star of David as an offensive symbol alongside the emblems of ISIS and Nazi Germany, but was some kind of mess inevitable given the FA's confused policy on what is and isn't a political symbol? It feels as though the Premier League is falling out of love with Antonio Conte. The Chelsea manager has been accused of a "crime against...

Ep 1097: Ireland Beat Wales To Keep Grand Slam Alive, Man Sent Off For No Gumshield - 26/02/2018

2/26/2018

Ireland are three games in, and are still on course for a Grand Slam. And after another hugely enjoyable weekend of Six Nations rugby, certainly the championship appears well within our grasp. Shane Horgan and Gerry Thornley talk us through Ireland's roller-coaster 37-27 win over Wales, with plenty of errors as well as sparkling, physical rugby to consider. And with James Ryan, Jacob Stockdale and Chris Farrell all starring, we consider what might be one of Ireland's biggest ever lineups....
