    The Buildup: Hope At Last, With Kevin Doyle

    The Buildup, in association with Ladbrokes is our weekly podcast where we mark your card for the sporting action of the week ahead in the company of Ladbrokes ambassadors Kevin Doyle, Stephen Ferris, Jason Quigley, and other top sporting pundits. 

    Kevin joins us this week after Stephen Kenny's perfect week. Kevin wanted a clean sheet and a goal from a forward. He got two clean sheets and seven goals in two games. We discuss how things have turned around for Ireland and what it means going forward. 

    He also makes his Ladbrokes 1-2-Free picks, giving us his reaction to the Newcastle takeover and how it will affect the current squad, and why Tottenham fans should be very worried about the form of Harry Kane.
