GAA Goes Full Liveline, Eddie Frankenstein, The Hollywood Murphs

The All Ireland Senior Club Football Final is a big day in the calendar but nobody expected the result of Kilmacud Crokes and Glen to become the water cooler topic of the nation this week. We welcomed Paul Flynn & Michael Foley onto the show to discuss how farcical this has all been. 

Plus there's Eddie Howe's likeness to Dr Frankenstein and how Hollywood has come knocking in Milltown Co, Galway...



Ep 2545: The Kilmacud 17, Munster Play Pretty, Broadhurst Beaten, Permutations Man Is Angry - 23/01/23

Kilmacud Crokes beat Glen of Derry to win the All Ireland Club Football Final this weekend, but footage shows they had 17 men on the pitch for the final play of the game. Should Glen appeal? Should the GAA offer a replay? Or should they go with Ken Early's suggestion and kick Kilmacud out of the competition altogether?

Munster scored one of the greatest tries in their history, away to Toulouse, thanks to a series of sharp passes and smart running lines...




Ian Wright Finds His Voice, Kicker's Shape Lives And Legacies

We were delighted to welcome Ian Wright to the World Service this week to talk about Arsenal's hot streak, how he eventually came to find his voice in broadcasting, as well as the role of the modern striker - namely Haaland and our very own Evan Ferguson. 

Plus there's US Murph on how it's often the humble kickers that shape lives and legacies.

La Faute de Giles, Bale Bows Out, Hollywood Bills

One of the great Irish sporting controversies dominated the World Service this week.. who really was at fault for the opening French goal in our 2-0 defeat in Paris in 1976?

There's also Ken's case for Bale's footballing immortality, as well as US Murph on what's making the Buffalo Bills' march to the NFL playoffs just so damn Hollywood.

Ep 2533: Proactive Porter, Vialli's Stats, Ulster Lose - 09/01/2023

2023 is but a pup and already Irish rugby fans are fretting over the team's World Cup chances if Johnny Sexton isn't fit.

Since his switch to loosehead prop just over a year ago Andrew Porter has become almost as important to both Leinster and Ireland...



Ep 2532: Potter Flops, Big Wout's Big Move, Hands Off our Evan - 09/01/2023

Potter Flops, Big Wout's Big Move, Hands Off our Evan



Rest in Peace Vialli, The rise of Ferguson, Cristiano's Conclusion

The Premier League has returned to our screens in the wake of the winter World Cup, so there's been plenty to get into in the first week of the year on the Second Captains World Service. 

Firstly though we pay tribute to the life and career of Gianluca Vialli, the legendary Italian striker who died this week aged 58. Terry Daley joins us from Milan to discuss the style, charm and dignity of the man, whose appeal transcended club and national loyalties...
