Episode 1645: The Second Captains 2019 Book Review
It’s one of our favourite shows of every year, and here is the 2019 edition – where we tell you what books to avoid, what books to beg your sibling for, and what our sports book of 2019 is.
It's sports book buying season for many ahead of Christmas,so if you are looking for the ideal present for yourself or someone special, keep Something in the Water in mind. You'll come away with a greater appreciation for one of Ireland's greatest clubs + their incredible story pic.twitter.com/Bc7p4DomSG

Our judging panel is the same as ever – Sinead O’Carroll, news editor of The Journal, and Malachy Clerkin of the Irish Times. On the mortuary table, ready to be picked apart – “Recovering” by Richie Sadlier, “In Sunshine Or In Shadow” by Donald McRae, “The Double” by Adrian Russell, and a few more besides. We also discuss just what the furore around Joe Schmidt’s autobiography tells us about the current sports book landscape.

Plus there’s reaction to Liverpool and Chelsea’s progression to the Champions League last 16, and the sheer lunacy of Ajax/Valencia.
