Episode 836: The Rise Of Monaco, Neymar’s Sponsored Tears, Team Of The Year
Eoin, Ken and Ciaran look back on another sensational matchweek in what is turning into arguably the greatest Champions League knockout stage we’ve ever seen.
Not that Real Madrid’s heroics impressed Faustino Asprilla…
¡NO MÁS! No más robos del @realmadrid goles en fuera de lugar, expulsiones. No más robos, equipo de ratas…

Andy Brassell joins us to talk about the miracle of Monaco. Who gets the credit? The players, most of whom will be chased by Europe’s top clubs this summer? The recruitment team who assembled such a great squad? The coach who has put it all together?
And Rory Smith was at Camp Nou to see Barcelona knocked out by Juventus without scoring a goal. Is their time at the top coming to an end? Where do they go from here?
We also ask if Neymar’s tears are sponsored and discuss our members reactions to portrait presents from Ken (see below).
