Ep 1738: Kenny Gets The Top Job, Murph Introduces Our Liberty Hall Interview
You’ve probably heard the news that Stephen Kenny has just been confirmed as Republic of Ireland manager with immediate effect, so we think it’s a pretty damn good time to replay our brilliant interview with the man himself from our most recent The Gang’s All Here Shows (boy will there be a live show party when we get through this by the way).
Murph introduces the show this Saturday night. Stephen spoke to us in front of a packed house at Liberty Hall and this interview is one not to be missed, as his passion for his job shines through in every answer. Tonight, we make it open to everyone.
We discuss his advice to young players, why loan deals can be a poisoned chalice, why you shouldn’t be punished for being an Irishman, his commitment to his attacking philosophy, and how the u-21s performances have been a rare bright spot for Irish football last year.
We’ll be back for more reaction with Ken, Eoin and Murph on Monday but in the meantime this Saturday, you’re allowed ONE DRINK, NO MORE, THEN YOU’RE OFF TO BED.
Click the image at the top of the page to play the show. This show is free to all – to listen to our programming throughout the rest of the week, join the Second Captains World Service. It’s independent, commercial-free and member-led with feature interviews, breaking news, Isolating with David O’Doherty, Richie Sadlier’s Player’s Chair, The Politics Podcast, and lots of added extras.
Your final edition of Isolating with @phlaimeaux of the week is out now.
Join David on an interior journey as he works through some emotions. This, I believe, is what the kids call ‘real talk’.
