Welcome to a very special edition of the Second Captains Football Podcast, a live broadcast from the wonderful Liberty Hall Theatre in Dublin. Warning: contains *beef Our guest star is one of the best TV analysts in any sport, not just football, who spent an entire career racking up trophies at Manchester United…. We welcomed GARY NEVILLE to the stage. We talked to Gary about mistakes he has made and how he has learned from them, how he lost and regained his confidence, and how his time as manager at Valencia impacted him personally and how he deals with managers now throwing his managerial career back at him. The Premier League has returned and Manchester United haven’t set the transfer market ablaze with big money signings. Ken asks Gary why, if they’re so brilliant at making money off the field, why United aren’t the biggest spending club in the world, and if they have their priorities all wrong? *Things get heated between Ken and Gary, Eoin gets dragged into it, the crowd get involved, strong opinions get aired. Plus there’s Pep showing the English how to play football, can Liverpool win the league, the Vieira Keane tunnel bust-up, the Wright Keane ITV bust-up, and we ask Gary “could anybody analyse those teams on telly?” It’ll make you laugh, it’ll make you cry, it’ll make you stand up and shout at your podcast device - its the 2018 Second Captains Premier League Night with Cadbury!

It’s the penultimate round of the season, meaning AFL Fantasy coaches have their preliminary finals. No more second chances, the equation is simple; win and you’re into the Grand Final, lose and it’s time to book your end of season trip… or start planning for Fantasy in 2019. In the super-competitive Bacon Cup, Roy and Warnie will face-off this weekend to book a place in the big dance. With the Warne Dawgs having the edge over destROY in recent weeks, it will be interesting to see what moves are made. Warnie is keen to bring in Mitch Duncan to nullify one of Roy’s point of differences due to the Cats’ favourable match up. The boys run the numbers to see which teams have the best Fantasy match ups for the final two rounds of the season. Geelong take on Fremantle this weekend, the fourth easiest team to score points against and then Gold Coast in the Grand Final. Both games are at GMHBA Stadium making Gary Ablett, Patrick Dangerfield and Sam Menegola popular options to trade in. Some coaches want to go against the trends to find a point of difference. Some unique options are discussed for the underdogs in their leagues.
