Episode 1680: Liverpool Are Relentless, Niall Quinn Is Irish Football’s New Saviour, And The Impeachment Trial Star With A Troubled Sporting Past
Liverpool were at it again last night, looking for large spells as if they’d finally drop points… before Roberto Firmino struck late on to ensure yet another win. If Firmino was a Liverpool saviour last night, many are hoping Niall Quinn can be Ireland’s off-field saviour, as he becomes the latest in a long line of FAI interim CEOs.
We get an insight into his possible leadership style courtesy of some word salad, served up by Ken.
