Episode 1250: Rice Talks To England, Ireland Deflates, Jose’s Existential Vacuum, Mo’s Dispute, Owen’s Groin
Oh Declan. The news that Declan Rice is “deliberating” over an offer to play his international football with England has sent Irish football into a tailspin, as many of us had already mentally installed Rice as the bedrock of the team for the next 15 years.
We discuss possible solutions for Jose Mourinho as he wanders in an existential vacuum and Eoin describes how he dealt with getting Poped out on Sunday early afternoon.
The tragedy of Mourinho is that he has become a bore, writes Ken Early https://t.co/XbMfcKQInp

Richie Sadlier joins us in studio to discuss the news about Declan Rice. How should we feel about this latest lost sheep, and what does Richie make of Kevin Kilbane’s tweet?
harry maguire is a £70m-rated player cos he had a good WC2018 for england. is he better than declan rice? maybe, maybe not – but as long as he’s an england player & rice plays for ireland, the PL will rate maguire far higher & pay him much more. so rice has plenty to think about. https://t.co/gMmjhyGBz2
