    Andorra Ireland matches aren’t your typical defining games for managers, but this one just might be. We bring back a podcast favourite Oisin McQueirns to discuss an Ireland win (finally), and a win involving us scoring 4 (FOUR!) goals. Ireland went 1-0 down, and the signs were looking ominous for Stephen Kenny’s men. However, goals from Parrott (two), Knight and Horgan sealed the former Dundalk manager’s first win as the national boss. Troy Parrott was Ireland’s hero and we discuss how big a night this is for the highly-rated teenager, after a disappointing club season. Jason Knight was another outstanding performer for the national side so we speak about the continued upward trajectory of his career. Finally, there’s chat about the upcoming friendly against Hungary and whether Stephen Kenny can make it two wins on the spin ahead of a crucial triple-header of World Cup qualifiers in September. Sean and Oisin also answer viewer’s questions including who they think should start in the upcoming game against Hungary. Will Kenny stay loyal to the players who started against Andorra, or will Ireland ring the changes?

    For our Premier League Review, we went back and listened to our pre-season predictions show. Had to hold our hands up on some awful Sheffield United, Southampton and Leeds United takes, not to mention West Ham, Crystal Palace etc. etc. etc. You get the gist. Anyway, we each made our case on who had the best predictions before one of us reluctantly gave in. There was also a look ahead to a cracking weekend of Premier League action involving the battle for European spots and we had a brief chat about Euro 2020 (in 2021!). Finally, Tackling Sport contributor James Mouatt commented on our YouTube live video (you can follow/subscribe to our channel for free by clicking here) saying he had finally given up on his beloved Tottenham. We’ve had to fend off the anti-Tottenham podcast brigade for the last year so forgive us for feeling slightly vindicated in our actions (whether by accident or not) regarding Spurs. Nevertheless, it was a quite a sad moment live on air and we wish James well for the summer in the hopes he comes back refreshed and ready for a year batting for his Tottenham side next season (with or without Kane!). Thanks to anyone who’s contributed to our Premier League coverage this season, particularly all the fans who came on our Fan Predictions show every Thursday. The podcast will continue to be brought to you twice weekly throughout the summer, this time focussing on international football. If you enjoy listening to the show, we’d really appreciate if you could leave us a review on your preferred podcast platform or give us a follow on social media – @tacklingsport.
