#22: Poppygate and Swindon Town with David Squires

David Squires joined us on the latest episode of the Nostalgia Ultras podcast to talk about his new book, Goalless Draws.

The Guardian’s resident football cartoonist speaks on why self-doubt can be a healthy tool a creator, the insanity of Poppygate, James McClean, the death of satire, Emo José Mourinho, the unintentional hilarity of LinkedIn, and his beloved Swindon Town.

#18: Giovanni Trapattoni and the Problem With Irish Football

Giovanni Trapattoni’s reign as Republic of Ireland manager is generally regarded as a failed experiment, but there were some great moments in between the depressing style of play and weird team selections. 

Ste, Colm and Brian remembered the good times with Trap on the latest podcast, but the conversation inevitably turns to the bad times, and a wider debate on the state of Irish football and what the Italian’s hiring represented for the game on this island. 

There’s also some chat on the Liam Miller Tribute Match, dad bods in nineties football, and the 1998 Tour De France.

#17: The Short But Spectacular Shinawatra Era of Man City

The era of Thaksin Shinawatra was as crazy as it was curt, but should be recognised as the first step in Man City’s journey towards Premier League glory in the coming decade.
 
On the latest podcast, Ste, Colm and Maurice discuss the Thai businessman’s ownership at City, his questionable past, their derby wins over Man United, and how it all came apart by the end. To top it all off, the affable Sven Goran-Eriksson was at the helm.
