Friday I'm in PRIDE!
In this week’s special PRIDE edition episode, Liam digests a tough week for his beloved Rovers as Dale asks why the league is so anti-Tallaght. Dale recounts a trip to specsavers while Liam disrespect the A.I in his home. This weeks interview is with the Dublin Devils who discuss LGBTQ+ issues in football. The fallout from a very busy week in the League of Ireland is dissected as Shamrock Rovers emerge as a potential suitor for Dale.
"Does Karl have webbed feet?..."
This week the lads are joined by Drogheda United Chairman Conor Hoey who explains exactly why Dale should follow the Drogs. Liam and Dale discuss diets from Brazil to Leitrim while return to stadia is also on the menu this week as Liam explains what being back at a game with 1000 fans felt like. With Saturday’s events still firmly in the minds of the whole football world, Liam tells Dale about an awful match day experience in Cologne. There’s the mailbag, review of the week, a botched attempt at Stats Entertainment and of course, plenty of carry on.

"John Cena supports Finn Harps..."
Sorry about the bumper episode but Dale would not stop talking about England winning Euro 2020...
In this edition the lads discuss a week without any LOI and the impact the Euros could have on the domestic scene in the next few weeks. Liam gives us his take on watching football in stadia and in local parks while Dale still laments England not winning Euro 96. This is the Club guest Dermot Looney explains why Dale should choose St Pat's Athletic, while links between LOI teams and the WWE somehow work their way into the podcast.
Even if a large part of my family is Irish, I haven’t even looked at the LOI until now. Now I’m gaining knowledge on all the teams. This podcast is excellent. It’s a perfect access point for so many people to the game. Great job lads! Keep it up, even when Dale eventually supports the team most like Arsenal
Really enjoyable listen!
As an exiled football fan, and a LOI fan, it’s nice to hear the opinions on the league through the eyes of a newbie! SRFC 18/25
