Episode 2004: Steo Comes Out Swinging, Finding Middle Ground In The Kenny Culture Wars, The Haaland Hypothesis
Another international window is over – for Ireland, at least – and Stephen Kenny is now eleven matches without a win. Was the silver lining from last night’s 1-1 draw with Qatar that things at least didn’t get appreciably worse?
Miguel Delaney and Gavin Cooney join us to discuss the ongoing Stephen Kenny culture war, and if there is a middle ground between “Kenny out” and “Kenny the saviour”. We also examine his media relations, if he is in a position to come out fighting and why he seemed so much more lucid when detailing his achievements as a manager.

To quote James McCarthy, Ken got into a 'war of words' with Chris Sutton on BBC 5 Live last night.
