Episode 2463: God, Family, Fatherland and Neymar
Today we react to some of your emails on yesterday’s Wolfe Tones talk, before checking in with Tim Vickery in Rio.
On the agenda are Neymar’s latest legal issues, why so many Brazilian footballers are on board with Bolsonaro’s election campaign, how the president has harnessed pride in the national team to his movement, and whether there is much of a future for the fraying PSG partnership between Mbappe and Neymar.
There’s also Damien Delaney’s feelings about Rangers fans, and, we get excited about our first live event in our shiny new studio with The Rodfather himself.
