According to Emmet Malone’s survey of Irish football supporter preferences over the weekend in the Irish Times, the situation is much, much worse than Dermot Keely thought. It turns out that more than a million morons in this country support Manchester United or Liverpool. Today we try to figure out what’s going on.

We also discuss the Sunday Times latest revelations about Mick McCarthy’s golden handcuffs, and Stephen Kenny’s media handcuffs.

Also we talk about the end of Liverpool’s run, Man United’s lucky escape at Goodison, a mediocre Clasico which saw the return of Argentina Messi, Villa’s doomed bravery in the League Cup final, and different methods of handling the media.

And we’re joined by Felix Tamsut of Deutsche Welle to talk about the farcical scenes at the end of Hoffenheim 0-6 Bayern – when play was twice stopped due to abusive banners directed at Hoffenheim’s billionaire owner, and eventually resumed with a truce between the teams. Why have German football fans turned on the Hoffenheim benefactor?
