Emery’s Super Villians, Sports Books Of The Year 2023
After what could be considered one of the greatest performances in the club’s storied history, it’s time to welcome a new force into the world of Premier League superclubs – Unai Emery’s Aston Villa. Miguel Delaney and Rory Smith joined us to delve into their past and ask if they truly are contenders for this year’s title.
Plus, Malachy Clerkin and Sinead O’Carroll were in studio this week to review the best sports books of 2023. This time around, with the added wrinkle of having a book written by one of our judges on the shortlist.
