#18: Giovanni Trapattoni and the Problem With Irish Football

Giovanni Trapattoni’s reign as Republic of Ireland manager is generally regarded as a failed experiment, but there were some great moments in between the depressing style of play and weird team selections.

Ste, Colm and Brian remembered the good times with Trap on the latest podcast, but the conversation inevitably turns to the bad times, and a wider debate on the state of Irish football and what the Italian’s hiring represented for the game on this island.

There’s also some chat on the Liam Miller Tribute Match, dad bods in nineties football, and the 1998 Tour De France.
