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)

Ep 17: Arsenal, Arteta & Ljungberg with Art de Roché

On this week's show the lads are joined by Art de Roché (@ArtdeRoche) of Football.London to chat about Arsenal and their season so far, and why Mikel Arteta is likely to become the new manager there after Unai Emery's departure, and Freddie Ljungberg's failure to steady the ship. In part one, the lads chat about Liverpool and their impressive form in the midst of rotation ahead of their World Club Cup jaunt in Qatar. Is it really their year?!

Ep 16: Merseyside Derby with Neil Jones

This week we preview the Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton with Neil Jones (@neiljonesgoal. The neighbouring clubs couldn't be further apart in terms of form this season, with Liverpool leading the league and Everton dwelling around the relegation zone. We cover Liverpool's busy Christmas period, the loss of Fabinho, Seamus Coleman's future and why we all want him to win, the possibility of David Moyes returning to Goodison Park, Liverpool's January transfer business and why despite each club's form, the Derby is bound to be close. (29:30) Before all that, the lads chat about Leicester and wonder if they're genuine title contenders, the future at Arsenal and if Freddie Ljunberg can suit up in a full time manager's role, and Cian explains why Eddie Howe shouldn't be in mentioned for a big job just yet.

Ep 15: Ireland 1-1 Denmark Roundtable

The lads are joined by Oisin McQueirns (@McQueirns) of Pundit Arena to unpack everything after an encouraging but ultimately disappointing night at the Aviva Stadium with Ireland's 1-1 draw against the Danes leaving them in a play-off situation next March. There's loads of topics covered, including the impact of Matt Doherty and his partnership with Alan Browne, Jeff Hendrick's off-colour night in the #10 role and who could take up the position going forward - Jack Byrne?! We glow over the immense David McGoldrick, discuss Glenn Whelan's unfair criticism, chat about some of the U21s who could make an immediate impact, and why Aaron Connolly is the real bright spark in Ireland's future.

Ep 14: The rise of Kosovo football

After 41:00, the lads chat to the BBC's Patrick Jennings (@pr_jennings) about the rise of Kosovo's national football team. Having played their first official competitive game as recently as 2016, they're on the brink of Euro 2020 qualification with games coming up this week against Czech Republic and England. We talk about their status as a UEFA nation, the big name Kosovan descendants who could've switched allegiance, their position for the future amongst the ultra competitive Balkan countries, and why a result against England wouldn't be that much of a surprise. Elsewhere, the lads recap the massive game between Manchester City and Liverpool at the weekend, Gini Wijnaldum's big game balls, Pep Guardiola's lack of faith in his squad and baffling team selections, and arise Sir Jordan Henderson, the great peacemaker.

Ep 12: FAI Cup Final preview with Gavin McLaughlin

We chat to Gavin McLaughlin (@DundalkSport) about Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers ahead of their mammoth FAI Cup Final on Sunday afternoon at the Aviva - including how Dundalk have transitioned to Vinny Perth after Stephen Kenny left and if Irish football NEEDS Rovers to win this. Also, Gavin talks a little bit about the mooted All-Island League and whether it will be good for Irish football on both sides of the border. Before all that, the lads chat about Leicester's stunning 9-0 win over Southamption and if they're indeed the real deal, Granit Xhaka and Arsenal fans, Spurs' strange set-up against Liverpool, and if Pep Lijnders is the smiley successor to Jurgen Klopp.
