Episode 2802: Happy Shamrocks, Angry Toffees, Dunphy v Tel
It turns out that Irish footballers literally cannot stop scoring and creating goals right now. Does this make the Ireland job the hottest vacant property in world football?
The weekend brought the sad news of Terry Venables’ death at the age of 80. We look back on the broadcasting masterclass that ended Venables’ chances of managing Ireland back when the job paid a lot more than it does now.
We also talk about the anti-corruption protest at Everton and whether the Everton fans really are on to something about the corruption of the Premier League.
There is even time to talk about a very 1230ish edition of Man City v Liverpool.

There appears to be widespread enthusiasm for the idea of Croke Park hosting Taylor/Cameron III, but one of our presenting team is intent on bringing down the mood… and it’s not the Croke Park area resident in our midst either.https://t.co/JGXeMC5LoE pic.twitter.com/HDTEg8Ur2n
