Episode 2789: Chelsea Get Rolling, Ange’s Rep, FAI Cup Rising, FAI Stalling
St Patrick’s Athletic beat Bohemians 3-1 in a record-breaking FAI Cup final. FAI CEO Jonathan Hill had promised in his programme notes: “I trust memories will be made to last a lifetime as we all take another step on our respective journeys.” Today we share the memories we made in that step along our respective journeys.
We talk about the sensational 4-4 at Stamford Bridge, and the truth underlying the narratives now developing around “embattled” Eddie Howe and Ange “is this guy even a football manager” Postecoglou.
Gavin Cooney joins us to talk more about the FAI Cup Final. How does he explain the Cup final’s rise? What gave Pat’s the edge on the day? Why can’t Bohs match off-field development with on-field success? And what are we to make of the fact that all this played out against the backdrop of another embarrassing storyline coming out of Abbottstown?
