Whatever happened to Master Football? It used to feature regularly on Sky Sports up until 2011, but no Masters events have taken place in the UK since then. We talk about our memories of the tournaments and the random names that peppered them, and then take on the onerous task of picking an Ireland team to compete in a hypothetical Masters World Cup.
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.
When Manchester United achieved what was thought to be the un-achievable in claiming the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League all in one season, it was not only ground-breaking, but utterly earth shattering for the history of English football. We’re hoping to break ground of similar proportions with the release of our first ever podcast.
In our bumper inaugural episode, Ste, Conor and Colm talk about that famous night in Barcelona and what makes that particular team such an important one in the context of British football. There’s also a hearty discussion about our love for Denis Irwin, debate over which squad member would fare better in the modern game, and why the Bayern Munich jersey worn that day is an abomination.
