Episode 945: Roddy Doyle’s Smile, McGregor’s Lost Mystique, Liverpool’s Big Plans
Eoin, Ken and Ciaran look back at McGregor-Mayweather. How did Ken get on in the HoJoMo? How did the organisers manage to concoct a situation where more than a quarter of the seats were unsold for the most-hyped sporting event of the year? And with two defeats in the last year and a half, and some of the mystique gone, what should McGregor’s next career move be?

We’re also joined by Roddy Doyle to talk about his new novel, Smile, his memories of school, the GAA con job, Derby under Clough, Dublin V the other 31 counties, and his beloved Chelsea FC in the 1970’s and today.
We also have time for a bit of a football transfer roundup as the action starts to heat up towards the end of the window.

Plus there’s waking dreams, Hooters, Murph and Don Juan, and Mayweather’s sad attempt at living the dream.
