    Ep 2506: Hey Jude, Mbappe's Knockout Blows, Giroud Pour L'Eternite, Messi's One Man Band - 04/12/2022

    Ep 2506: Hey Jude, Mbappe's Knockout Blows, Giroud Pour L'Eternite, Messi's One Man Band - 04/12/2022

    England and France dealt with Poland and Senegal with the minimum of fuss today, but how will they handle each other?  
    Ken got his first look at England in the flesh at this tournament, and he was suitably impressed with Jude Bellingham… but has Kyle Walker got what it takes to stop Kylian Mbappé? 
    We talk to friend of the show Philippe Auclair about Mbappé's red-hot form, and about Giroud, now France’s record goal-scorer.
    And we discuss Messi's one man band, how much Louis van Gaal is loving life at the moment, and why Declan Rice can safely return to Ireland now that he’s just a middle-aisle Jude Bellingham.

    Ep 2505: Karma Bites, Xhaka the Shithouse, South Korea Scrape Through - 03/12/2022

    Ep 2505: Karma Bites, Xhaka the Shithouse, South Korea Scrape Through - 03/12/2022

    It’s the end of the World Cup group phase and after another day of chaos and disorder we have Luis Suarez in tears, South Korea triumphant and Granit Xhaka sealing his reputation as an Ulster senior football championship-level shithouse.
    Ken was at both the Uruguay Ghana and Switzerland Serbia games yesterday and he tells us how gleefully Ghana celebrated their own demise when faced with the image of a weeping Suarez and just why Serbia limped so pathetically out of the World Cup.  
    Plus there’s Uruguay’s valid VAR complaints, South Korea’s deserved progression and another relaxed evening of football with Argentina.

    Team Hobo, Messi Saunters, Fat Horses, Golf Ball To The Groin

    Team Hobo, Messi Saunters, Fat Horses, Golf Ball To The Groin

    it's been an eventful World Cup for our man on the ground. Ken was on hand to watch Messi inspire his team to the top of Group C with a display that flew in the face of everything we know about attacking football. 

    We also discuss Pulisic's knee to the groin which brings up painful memories for Murph. And Ken gives us the rundown on what delights Doha has to offer.

    Ep 2500: Double Ken, Mbappe Gold, Messi To Miami, Germans go Full Krug - 27/11/2022

    Ep 2500: Double Ken, Mbappe Gold, Messi To Miami, Germans go Full Krug - 27/11/2022

    It’s been another bonkers weekend of World Cup action and there’s only one way to cover it all…. that’s right, it’s a double helping of His Ken-ness!
    In the big game of the day Germany saved their bacon by going FULL KRUG while Spain forgot to keep playing football. 
    There’s also golden Mbappe, Croatia crushing Canada, “relish it Rabat” and Messi to Miami.
    Don’t forget we’ve another show out earlier today on Argentina’s win over Mexico.

    Ep 2499: Messi Magic Might Spark Argentina, Dressing Room Dressing Downs & Sing-Songs - 27/11/2022

    Ep 2499: Messi Magic Might Spark Argentina, Dressing Room Dressing Downs & Sing-Songs - 27/11/2022

    Lionel Messi saved Argentina again last night with a stunning goal to break the deadlock against Mexico. They're back in contention, but can they go all the way? 
    Tim Vickery is far from sure, but the arrival of Enzo Fernandez in their midfield gives them a chance. 
    Plus there's misguided vox pops, Eoin's favourite dressing-room moment of the World Cup so far, and a short audio history of Argentinian post-match celebrations.

    Big In Japan, Ken's Glass Ceiling, Argentina Again, German Retail

    Ken has been on hand to witness both Japan's victory over South Africa in the 2015 RWC and their recent win over Germany in the 2022 football World Cup, but the king of world cup upsets didn't stop there as he was also at the Saudi Arabia Argentina game.
    We discuss Germany's silent gesture, the joyous positivity of Cameroon's Joey N'Do and have a new bed for Ken's glass door incident.
