#14: The Patron Saint Of Wasted Talent

Stephen Ireland was his country’s great white hope when he came on the scene as a prodigious young talent in 2005.

Through a combination of injuries, controversies and poor form, his creative skill and footballing talents have gone to waste.

Ste, Colm and a departing Conor wonder what constitutes a wasted talent in football, who are the best examples and is Stephen Ireland the biggest one of them all.

#12: The Grandfather Of Irish Football

Brian Kerr is one of the most influential figures in Irish football, producing some of the country’s best talent as the FAI’s youth manager in the nineties.

Yet, he’s not only out in the cold from the game, but he also divides opinion among football fans in Ireland. Some see Kerr as a legend, others as a jackeen fool.

Ste McGovern and Colm Boohig discuss his legacy as a manager and why he’s now performing a public service as a TV pundit.

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.

#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.
