The usual crew are on board this week and start by sifting through the weekend’s Premier League action. Ger and Willie aren’t best pleased with Spurs’ home defeat to West Ham, while Neil is pleased that Manchester City got back to winning ways. There’s some much deserved praise for Southampton and a look at another baffling decision at Cardiff.

Ireland play their final two World Cup qualifiers over the next week and there’s some positivity, even with a trip to Germany looming large. Noel King has built some bridges with players and a couple of good performances will see fans optimistic ahead of a new coach.

There’s also a look at the two FAI Cup semi finals with Dundalk feeling very hard done by after some questionable referring before Neil tries to sell the A-League, and a popular Irish television show gets a mention to finish things off.
