Episode 2787: Thank You Manchester United, Desperately Seeking Scapegoats, Duff Wins
Where would we be without them? Once again the early winter darkness was brilliantly lit up by the blazing ball of flames that is Manchester United Football Club.
The 4-3 defeat in Copenhagen is one of the all-timers. We identify where and why things went wrong, pointing fingers at the guilty men and giving credit where due to the normal men.
Gavin Cooney joins us to give his take on where United are going wrong, and also to talk about the remarkable goings on at Shelbourne. The billionaire Turkish owner has cut and run after only five months, after apparently accepting defeat in a power struggle with the darling of Drumcondra, Damien Duff.
