Episode 2015: The Game That Changed My Life, With Roddy Collins
It has been a long time since we talked to our great friend Roddy Collins – it might even have been as far back as our TV show, when he helpfully used to read out boring tweets from Irish sportspeople.

But he’s with us today, and he’s talking about the extraordinary day when his Bohemians team were 4-1 down at half-time to hated rivals Shamrock Rovers, before coming back to beat them 6-4 and going on to win the league and cup double in 2001.
15 years ago today, Roddy Collins’ Bohemians completed the most memorable Dublin derby comeback of all time. https://t.co/fyXSbwPDxM #Bohs

We talk to him about getting sacked at half-time, taking the plaudits at full-time, how it set him up for the double, and why he lost his job soon after. We also talk about Stephen Kenny, who would be Bohs manager soon after Roddy, and why he feels his old adversary is being found out at international level.
Plus there’s Ken’s thoughts on Bayern-PSG, why Dortmund-City could be tasty tonight, and why going for a run with your wife is a healthy sign of any relationship.
