Episode 1228: Manager MindMeld – John Meyler On Cork Heartbreak, Graham Shaw On Women’s Hockey World Cup Odyssey, Malcolm Gladwell’s Disagreeable Theory
It’s a managerial masterclass on the show today, as we talk to two managers currently experiencing the highs and lows of life in the hot-seat.
John Meyler’s Cork team lost an All-Ireland semi-final for the ages on Sunday, and he talks to us today about playing the loss back in his mind, regretting substitutions, and batting off criticism.
Coach of the Irish women’s hockey team Graham Shaw, on the other hand, is having the time of his life – his team have qualified for the World Cup quarter-finals, and he can sit back tonight and watch the game between India and Italy to see who we will face.
We discuss turning around a history of near misses, going up against far better-funded teams, and playing football with Duffer at Lourdes Celtic.

Plus there’s The Rock, Hurlsplaining, Malcolm Gladwell on acting disagreeably, and hurling gets some recognition from the yanks.
This jaw-dropping hurling save was the sports highlight of the weekendhttps://t.co/tyOYsmI20d

@SecondCaptains can you help? Excellent photo by @TommyDD97 is it a save as the ball had not been struck or is it a tackle/block/flying block. It’s important we resolve this!!! Thanks pic.twitter.com/Lc5cxEyg6E
