Ste McGovern (Balls.ie), Conor Clancy (Forza Italian Football) and Colm Boohig (Storyful) reminisce on Ireland vs Spain, Damien Duff’s best game in an Irish jersey, and why Ireland would have won with Roy Keane in the squad.

#8: Celebrating England’s Glorious History Of Failure

The World Cup is here! You know what that means: it’s time to watch English fans get ridiculously excited before it all comes crashing down, of course!

England’s failure to make any sort of impact at a major tournament in the past twenty years has been a great source of amusement for Irish football fans, and beyond.

Ste McGovern (Balls.ie), Colm Boohig (Storyful) and Conor Clancy (Forza Italian Football) run through each English exit since France 98 to see which one they find the funniest.

The Ultras also chat about their first World Cup memories, Wes Hoolahan’s goal vs Sweden two years ago, and Anthony Bourdain.

#7: The Beloved UEFA Cup Winning Parma Side Of 1999

Few teams stir the emotions of neutral football fans quite like the glorious Parma side of the nineties.

Ste and Conor return having not recorded together for a over a month now to talk about the ridiculous quality in the Parma team, how a small provincial club rose to the top table, and why it will never happen again.

The Ultras also debate whether or not this iconic team are too romanticised and if Fabio Cannavaro really deserved to win the Balon d’Or in 2006.
