Episode 898: Donegal In Disarray, Home Advantage Factor In GAA, 4th Of July With US Murph, Ice Cube The Master Negotiator
The Donegal juggernaut looked to be travelling serenely through 2017 as a solid league campaign was backed up with a convincing Ulster quarter-final win over Antrim. But the wheels fell off the wagon in their crushing Ulster semi-final defeat to Tyrone last month, and they came perilously close to being dumped out of the championship altogether by Longford last Saturday night.
Eamon McGee, All-Ireland winner in 2012, tells us just how worried he was last weekend, why the older heads, including his own brother, need to step it up big time this weekend against Meath, and what he makes of Jim McGuinness’ move to China.
I said two weeks ago it would be Donegal vs Monaghan in an Ulster final. I obviously meant to say the two teams wouldn’t be in the final.

US Murph joins us on the 4th of July to talk about the incredible life of Allen Iverson, and how Ice Cube could become the third richest sportsman in the world in 2017.
Plus there’s racers and trainers, why Vince Lombardi might be the biggest pothole in the history of sport, fortress Navan, the home advantage factor in the GAA, and Mayo’s battle in Clare.
