    Ep 2870: Jamie Wall's Fitzgibbon Cup Triumph, Wiffen's World

    Ep 2870: Jamie Wall's Fitzgibbon Cup Triumph, Wiffen's World

    Jamie Wall’s Fitzgibbon Cup pedigree is pretty special. He was a selector for Mary I’s first win in the competition in 2016, was in charge in 2017, and in another David vs Goliath triumph won their third national title on Saturday, against 3-in-a-row chasing University of Limerick.
    He joins us on today’s show along with his selector Podge Collins, the former Clare All-Ireland winner and All-star (and his first cousin), to talk to us about their relationship, what makes the Fitzgibbon so special, and their post-match celebration seen around the world.
    We also discuss our two-time world champion Daniel Wiffen, and the imminent return of Flynn and Murph.

    Ep 2869: Coleman's Credentials, FAI's Fun Faction, Caoimhin Is A Keeper, Erling V Darwin - 19/02/24

    Irish football fans don't ask for much these days, but when it comes to finding a new national team manager they still want a little mystery in their lives. So over the weekend when Chris Coleman shot to the top of the contenders list the general response appeared to be, through a chink too wide comes in no wonder.
    We chat to Dion Fanning and Gavin Cooney in studio about Coleman's credentials, the real/rumoured list of candidates, the FAI's fun faction, and how messy the whole managerial search appears to be.
    We also look at the form and feet of Liverpool and Ireland's Caoimhin Kelleher, the Nathan Collins stock market, Evan's goal drought, Erling's misses, and the Jota - Nunez master blaster strike partnership.

    The Techno Optimist Manifesto, The Lance Games, Bradley's Credentials

    Welcome back to your weekly taster of the Kevin Brannigan World Service.

    Ep 2864: Bayer Maybe-Kusen, Rice Respect, Roberto De Cromwell, War Bison McTominay

    Ep 2864: Bayer Maybe-Kusen, Rice Respect, Roberto De Cromwell, War Bison McTominay

    Declan Rice: to be fair, quite useful. A pity most West Ham fans didn't wait around long enough to see his goal. In the wake of a record-equalling home defeat for West Ham, we wonder what David Moyes has to do to get a little credit around here?
    Manchester United remain undefeated in 2024. They might not yet be the most spectacular of the teams chasing the Champions League spots but perhaps they look the most sustainable.
    Archie Rhind-Tutt joins us from Germany to talk about Bayer Leverkusen's 3-0 thrashing of Bayern Munich. Xabi Alonso's team are the only unbeaten side in the top 5 leagues. Is it too soon to say we have found the new Pep?

    Ep 2863: Winning Pretty, Jack's Smile, Scots Beaten By Protocol, Jim For Ireland - 12/02/24

    Ireland have won 10 Six Nations games in a row now, and continue to do it in style with another 6 tries against Italy, and their first 6N/5N clean sheet since 1987.
    We chat to Gerry Thornley of The Irish Times and Tom English of BBC Scotland about Jack Crowley's passing game, Henshaw's case for holding onto the 13 jersey, who would replace Hugo Keenan if he's badly injured, why England are going to be tough to beat in Twickers, and if Scotland should blame the ref, the TMO, World Rugby's protocols, or themselves, for a defeat to an out of sorts French team.
    We get told to turn that frown upside down by a listener, and Murph looks at Jim McGuinness' soccer CV and wonders if he could do a job for the Republic of Ireland.
