    Ep. 28 - Talkin' Balls LIVE!

    For this special live episode Brian, Matthew and Mark made the short trip across the Irish Sea to Drogheda to take part in a special fundraising event called Talkin' Balls in aid of The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust (https://kevinbellrepatriationtrust.com/). A great time was had by all, especially as they were joined on stage by legendary Tyrone Gaelic footballer Sean Cavanagh. A self-confessed Manchester United nut, Sean added his perspective to the conversation which included the comparisons between Sir Alex Ferguson and Mickey Harte, the no-no of swapping shirts, Man United's current woes, the characters of GAA, Celtic's revival and the Eric Cantona effect.

Great work chaps

Bahzvhajja ,

Love it

Being a fan of Celtic who also had a soft spot for UTD I love listening to these pods

Cumbrian Dave ,

Fantastic tales. Great laughs

A must for fans of Utd and Celtic especially those around in the 80’s and 90’s. Choccys dry humour is great and the guests contribution to the show is fantastic. The two journalist lads aren’t bad either. They’ve definitely got a future career.
