Episode 2849: Coach Carsley, Excitement Matters, The Rise Of The Strongman
Roy Keane half heartedly throwing his hat in the ring, Lee Carsley reportedly on the cusp of being appointed, Chris Hughton being chased out of Ghana by furious fans and journalists – it’s been a big week of Irish managerial updates!
Miguel Delaney and Dion Fanning join us to talk about the latest developments. What do they make of Lee Carsley’s CV? Could Roy Keane be an “entertainer” and a manager? Why has Robbie Keane not been mentioned more? Will Neil Lennon’s communication skills get him over the line?
At this stage in our Irish football journey, excitement matters.
What about today’s dramatic developments at UEFA, where Zvonimir Boban has resigned in protest at the Bonapartist ambitions of his former ally, Alexander Ceferin? Miguel looks at the link between capitalism, state run clubs and the trend towards electing “strongmen” who end up wanting to stay in the job a little too long.
