The length of this weeks pod is directly proportional to the number of fixtures, upsets, red cards and media training opportunities spurned by our studio guest Trevor Croly. Fresh from victory at the Dublin Derby and defeat in Derry, the Bohs number 2 talks about the 'Peoples Club', fixture congestion, Keith Long's recruitment and an underappreciated dress sense. Johnny takes up for an under fire Stephen Bradley and continues to miss goals, literally, at Bray and spends a windswept and interesting few minutes with Cork City’s Conor McCormack. King Kenny Shiels is on the phone from Derry because we won't pay his travel expenses and Dan is on the naughty step for using curse words at Bray. All this bookended by the best sig tune in all of Christendom!
In a breaking news episode we talk to Tom O'Mahony, the President of St. Patricks Athletic to discuss the plans for the new stadium complex in Inchicore and wonder what colour carpet will be in the upstairs bedrooms of the adjoining apartments. Limerick goalkeeper and Dublin 8 native Brendan Clarke gives us his 2 cents on the big news as well as secret records, goalkeeping howlers and eskimos in Oriel Park. There's a chat with Dundalk's Chris Shields, Ronan Finn on this weeks derby, an overtly ageist debate and who, if anyone, will think of the children? It's a bumper LOI weekly...and it's early!
This week sees Dan back from New York City to join forces with the two Johnnys. Yes, LOI Weekly ‘Hall of Famer’, Johnny McDonnell returns to cast his well schooled eye over the youth setup, the league, and whether Architects can build football teams with PowerPoint! There’s strip searches in Bray, Munster Derbies with Waterford manager Alan Reynolds, predictions galore and we try not to mention Fairyhouse. It's episode 8 and its here!
'Holy Thursday Batman, it's episode 7!' Rising again this Easter season is Conor Clifford who discusses his ban for gambling offences, boxing, and his quest for a new club. A less than penitent, Lee Grace after switching from Galway to Rovers is in studio to talk Galway exoduses and life with Rovers. We have all our usual banter and predictions in a three part format that dies, is buried and rises again as an all round egg-cellent Easter show. (Sorry about that last bit!)
