Episode 2627: Robbie Returns, Low Performance Frank, Croker Bias, Dubs With ‘Tude, Leo “Gulf State” Messi
Robbie Keane is back in the Premier League as part of Big Sam Allardyce’s back-room team at Leeds. Ken tells us what Robbie can bring to the table for one of his beloved former clubs; and wonders if maybe we should all cut Frank some slack?
We talk to the best GAA punditry team in the business, Paul Flynn and Michael Murphy, about Dublin, Croke Park, Glenn Ryan, and the one provincial final that looks like it could be beneficial to lose, in the aftermath of the first ever All-Ireland final group stages draw yesterday.
We also cover the Dubs’ attitude, Cluxton, Derry’s efficiency… and the current inter-county manager most eager to get involved in their team’s warm-up.
And, of course, there’s Leo “Gulf State” Messi.
