    Ep 22: Trust the process

    This week Kevin is joined by Cian Fahey (@cianaf) and Oisin McQueirns (@McQueirns) to discuss Ireland's first two games under Stephen Kenny. We talk about everything from the defensive conundrum with Shane Duffy and John Egan while Dara O'Shea waits in the wings to pounce, to the impressive Aaron Connolly and how he is being moulded into a role for years to come, but also why we can just play him anywhere.

    We also talk about the performances of Callum O'Dowda, Adam Idah's impress debut all things considered, the old Matt Doherty v Seamus Coleman chestnut, the midfield mash-up going forward and the combination that could get selected for Slovakia, and wax lyrical on the very, very bright future for Troy Parrott.

    Ep 21: The Kenny era is finally upon us

    Hail, the Stephen Kenny era is finally here! Unfortunately that doesn't mean boring old FAI governance chat has been eradicated just yet, but we leave that til last in our chat with The42.ie journalist Gavin Cooney (@gcooney93)where we discuss Kenny's first proper week in charge, his blend of young and old in his first squad, Matt Doherty's transfer to Spurs and why Michael Obafemi's exclusion isn't a saga... yet 🤔😂 (from 26:00)

    Before all that, Kevin, Cian and Phil get the band back together for the new season and chat about what the hell is going on at Barcelona, Matt Doherty taking the step-ish up to Spurs, and Cian fills us in on the turmoil at Dundalk.

    Ep 20: Dutch dilemma & Spain's adopted voice of an era

    With football grinding to a halt, the news turns to if, when and how leagues will reconvene their 2019/20 seasons - or just do what the Eredivisie did and simply pull the plug on their season, with the title still up for grabs. Michael Bell of Football-Oranje.com joins the podcast to talk about the fallout from that, and why ADO Den Haag are delighted to see the back of Alan Pardew (26:00)

    We're then joined by Robbie Dunne to tell us about the legendary voice of Spanish football Michael Robinson, who sadly passed away after a long battle with cancer. The former Ireland and Liverpool player went on to be Spain's forefront voice of football and was loved country-wide, leaving behind a major foot print on the country (41:00)
