Episode 1594: Ken Reports From Georgia As Our Starting XI Takes Shape, Aaron Connolly Must Start (But Probably Won’t), And The Golden Generation In Tallaght
Ken has been in Tbilisi for a number of days now, and he’s eaten of their food, drunk of their wine, and evaluated their football team. He also has some views on Aaron Connolly he’d like to share with the world – ie, we MUST start him on Saturday afternoon against Georgia.
David Sneyd is in studio, and isn’t so sure about starting Connolly in a game of this importance, and we also debate the pros and cons of Matt Doherty at left-back, Glenn Whelan in central midfield, and Callum Robinson.
Mick McCarthy pretty clear that Aaron Connolly will play against Georgia on Saturday. https://t.co/dBVbDaLbcg

Plus there’s Frances Murphy’s TV guide to the sporting weekend, we salute Eddie Jones and Steve Hansen’s canny pool-stage management, and Ken outlines his egg preferences, dining alone in Tbilisi, and Dublin in the rare auld times.
georgia coach vladimir weiss: "ireland play football, if i can say, like michael flatley dancing… his passion is unbelievable. ireland is nice country, but georgia is also nice country. we have also fantastic dancer. better? we will see tomorrow, OK?"
