#2: Robin Friday, The Greatest Player You Never Saw

Considered one of the great football mavericks, Robin Friday was infamous for his debauchery and crazy antics. But he also happened to possess an innate talent that wowed crowds when he walked onto the football pitch.

Despite only playing the lower divisions in a career that just about spanned four seasons, Friday became a cult hero at Reading and Cardiff City. He was considered the first rock star of football, but would sadly pass away after suffering a heart attack in 1990 at the age of 38.

Ste, Colm and Conor talk about his career, life story and try to separate fact from fiction.
