    Ep 60: Ole out, Klopp's 4D chess, FAI Cup frenzy & a big week for Ireland Womens

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally met his end, we talk about United's lack of planning that has left them with no interim manager, pipe dreams of Pochettino and the problems the next guy will have to face to start turning things around at Old Trafford.
    Also, there's talk on Liverpool's big win over Arsenal, Steven Gerrard's early new manager bounce at Villa and why Leicester might have been secretly happy to see United coming looking for Brendan Rodgers.
    On matters closer to home, we talk about the buzz around the League of Ireland at the moment ahead of the massive FAI Cup final this weekend between Bohs and St Pats as well as the big week for Vera Pauw's charges in their quest for World Cup qualification.

    Ep 59: Xavi returns, Liverpool lose & Moyes' Hammers Time

    Ep 59: Xavi returns, Liverpool lose & Moyes' Hammers Time

    There's no stopping West Ham, not even Liverpool - we discuss what's so fragile about this Liverpool side and why David Moyes has West Ham ticking. We talk about the Manchester Derby as another week goes by with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's future up in the air. And we take a look at Dean Smith's sacking at Aston Villa and if Steven Gerrard is really the man for the job. Plus, the upcoming Ireland games and if we can avenge the loss to Luxembourg.
    In part 2 (from 48m) Alan Feehely (@azulfeehely) joins to talk all things Spanish football as Xavi makes the inevitable move into the Barcelona hotseat. We'll see what his plan is to turn around Barcelona's fortunes and how long he'll get to do it. Also, why Real Sociedad are top of the league, how Karim Benzema is carrying Real Madrid and why Unai Emery decided to stay at Villareal after flirting with Newcastle.

    Ep 58: Rovers champions, Nuno sacked & Ole lives to fight another day

    Ep 58: Rovers champions, Nuno sacked & Ole lives to fight another day

    Ole goes from dead man walking to manager killer as Nuno Espirito Santo gets the bullet at Spurs. We discuss the past week at Manchester Utd, why Conte to Spurs makes more sense, Liverpool's midfield problems and why Graham Potter looks the real deal at an exciting Brighton. We also discuss Aaron Ramsdale proving us all wrong, Paddy Vieira's mighty Palace and why Andrew Omobamidele is in the Premier League to stay.
    In part two (45mins), we're joined by Macdara Ferris (@macdarabueller) to talk about the League of Ireland season as Shamrock Rovers sealed a successive title at the weekend - we talk about Danny Mandriou, the title challengers who can threaten Rovers' thrown, Dundalk's problems, why RTE should be doing more for the domestic game, and we also talk about Macdara's new book 'From Ringsend to Tallaght', interviewing some key figures in the past 100 years at Shamrock Rovers.

    Ep 57: Super Salah, Ole on the clock & Barca's fall from grace

    Ep 57: Super Salah, Ole on the clock & Barca's fall from grace

    Liverpool and City played out a (second half) game for the ages, with Mo Salah confirming his status as Liverpool's greatest in the modern era. We discussed that, Rodri's brilliance, James Milner counting his lucky stars and why City's move for Grealish over Kane may become a recurring theme.
    Also, there's chat about Solskjaer's future and his team selection against Everton, Leicester's struggles and why Brendan Rodgers is a Europa League manager who hates the Europa League.
    And we take turns to laugh at Barcelona as well as take a look at Ireland ahead of the upcoming international break - and why the mood music is harboring good vibes for Kenny and his team.

    Ep 56: Salah #100, Ronaldo's return & Paddy's Palace

    Ep 56: Salah #100, Ronaldo's return & Paddy's Palace

    The gang unpack another big weekend of Premier League action, as a top four emerges amongst Manchester Utd after Cristiano Ronaldo's return and their big win against Newcastle, Liverpool as Mo Salah hits his 100th Premier League goal, City as they nick a win over hapless Leicester, and Chelsea as Romelu Lukaku resumes his role as flat-track bully.
    Elsewhere, we wonder if Patrick Vieira can actually turn things around at Palace after his first win as manager and look ahead to the Champions League group stage which kicks off this week - including our infamous Dark Horse predictions for the campaign.

    Ep 55: Ronaldo the heartbreaker as Kenny's Kids begin to come of age

    Ep 55: Ronaldo the heartbreaker as Kenny's Kids begin to come of age

    Well, it was all going so well until Cristiano Ronaldo decided to show up and break Irish hearts with two awesome headers to snatch the win. Until then, there were plenty of positives to take as Gavin Bazunu denied Ronaldo from the spot, Andrew Omobamidele looked the part in an unexpected debut, Josh Cullen and Matt Doherty delivered fine performances and Adam Idah led the line like a well travelled #9.
    To unpack the game, look at who wasn't involved and wax lyrical about the U21s, Evan Ferguson and some of the young talent coming through, we're joined by Ronan Calvert (@KennysKids).
    Please excuse some audio gremlins for the host, which miraculously fixed themselves mid-way through the recording.
