Episode 1828: Bale’s Dream, Old Liars, FAI Rebellion, Arsenal’s Compassion, Newcastle’s Pain
Ahead of the return of the Champions League, Eoin has a dream about Gareth Bale while Ken ponders Bale’s career drift at Madrid and why old people wouild ever need to lie.
Tomorrow is EGM day at the FAI – but it’s by no means certain that the governance reforms are going to pass.
Fairly extraordinary stuff from the FAI tonight. A rebellion from football directors on the board, that raises big questions about the MOU with the government. https://t.co/KKMxPCR3JX

What is this latest row all about? Why did Garry Owens and Niall Quinn feel the need to organise a press conference to state their position before tomorrow’s meeting? Do the directors who are opposed to the proposed changes have a case? Gavin Cooney joins us to analyse what is going on.
We also talk about Arsenal’s redundancy plan and the outrage it has generated.
Plus there’s Newcastle’s sense of injustice, the under rated Ritter bar and Frances has lots of tv for you to watch this weekend.
