Hold the BackPage is Dublin only this week as Tom Fox is back on board with Neil Sherwin and Willie Gannon in Ger McCarthy’s absence. His timing couldn’t be better with his Manchester United side having beaten rivals City in the FA Cup at the weekend and the key points of the game are dissected, including Vincent Kompany’s red card and the return of Paul Scholes.
The return of another former Premier League legend, Thierry Henry, is met with unanimous approval while there’s also chat about the fourth round draw which has paired United with Liverpool.
Speaking of Liverpool, their League Cup semi final first leg win over Manchester City midweek has Neil rather disappointed and he tries valiantly to defend Roberto Mancini’s side in the wake of successive cup defeats.
In the second part of the show, we have the latest from the mad world of Mario Balotelli before Willie gets his chance to wax lyrical about Spurs, though he does advise caution in terms of a title push given the tricky run of fixtures on the horizon. Norwich City get some much deserved praise while the current football on show from Everton and Aston Villa understandably cops a bit of stick with the two sides set to face each other this weekend.
