More big games for Irish players in England after Stephen Quinn and David Meyler booked a place in the FA Cup final. On the YBIG Football Show this week, Dave O’Grady also spoke to former Ireland international Brian Carey, who’s currently the youth team coach at Blackburn Rovers and Wexford Youths supremo Mick Wallace T.D.
Spud Watch returns after spending the last two months in a Maharishi retreat to combat the night horrors afflicted by the thoughts of Glenn Whelan getting an FA Cup medal. Life really isn’t fair is it?
SO HERE we are again, the Christmas programme is over, the effects of the food and drink excesses still apparent (as the five-aside fitness levels have shown), and we’ve a new calendar year with the top of the Premier League table looking remarkably like the sports section of a 1998 newspaper (aside from the fact Man City found their level in Division 3 back then).
