Episode 1271: Bad Week For Petrodollars, Man City Vacuum, WC 2030 Blarney, Ronaldo’s Red, Kool Ken, PSG Are Street
Ken had a lot to say about PSG’s collaboration with Air Jordan the other day and since then a lot of listeners have had a lot to say about it to Ken. The gist of their messages: you don’t know what you’re talking about. Could it be that, when it comes to “cool”, Ken… has no idea what he is talking about?
it’s possible i’m not the best judge. but i think PSG just might be the uncoolest brand in the history of capitalism https://t.co/0R8mC2Nw8R

We talk about the first round of matches in the Champions League – a bad week for petrodollar superclubs and Tottenham, a good one for the traditional big red clubs. But at least Mauricio Pochettino came up with a good metaphor.
Miguel Delaney was there to see City lose at home – we speak to him about what went wrong for them and why the atmosphere for these matches at the Etihad is often so flat.
No side has won modern CL after losing opening game – but Pep has bigger problems before he can think about thathttps://t.co/MTrFZBWxzr

And Tom Williams, author of the Bleacher Report piece discussed on Monday’s pod, joins us to try to figure out how PSG have managed to astroturf cool.
Plus there’s WC 2030 in Ireland, Ronaldo’s tears and Emre Can steps on a rake.
The FAI joining a bid for 2030 World Cup definitely opens up the possibility of the current board hanging in there for another 12 years. Careful what you wish for.

We speak to @craigray11 in South Africa about saving the sport, the world ganging up to close the gap on NZ, and why the Springboks, under the mysterious Rassie Erasmus, are, worryingly, sputtering into life at just the wrong time for Ireland
