Episode 1010: Second Leg Simplicity, Martin O’Neill’s Stand Up, Uncouth Danes, Self Aware Fan Culture, Rating Laudrups
Ken returns from Copenhagen impressed by the city’s sophistication and liveability and slightly taken aback by the rumbustious temperament of its people.

We reflect on Ireland’s performance in the 0-0. Was this anti-football taken to the Nth degree? Or do we need to recognise the often-unseen effort and tenacity that goes into a result like that?
Which Laudrup was the best? Brian, Michael, or father Finn?
We chat to Brian Laudrup about all things Ireland-Denmark, but unfortunately don’t get round to asking him why all Danish people, and in particular the Laudrup family, have great hair ?????????????????????????????????https://t.co/BtnvH2pm7B pic.twitter.com/x6JQK5OpMG

Martin O’Neill was channelling the great Dave Allen in his press conference today. Between the laughs, we’ll hear some of the Ireland manager’s thoughts on tomorrow’s decisive match.
We also hear from Danish journalist Kian Fonoudi on how the Danes felt after Saturday’s draw. Meanwhile Michael O’Neill looked desolate last night after Northern Ireland were knocked out of the World Cup by Switzerland. On the plus side, the NI boss is hot stuff in the international jobs market.
