Listen: The Balls Fantasy Podcast Lads Give Exclusive Preview Of Incredible New Football Game

We'll level with you: the official unveiling of arguably the greatest football pub game this side of the millennium isn't until tomorrow, so we can't put much in writing.

Basically, I've had an email from upstairs saying that if I give anything away, our editor Mark Farrelly is going to wrap me in raw ham and drop me into the tiger enclosure at Dublin Zoo. This is a man who warned us that Sunderland's Steven Fletcher was about to catch fire on the podcast three weeks ago. He doesn't piss around.

What I can reveal is that the game involves former Ireland great Ian Harte - a man who was better than Lionel Messi on at least 14 occasions - and it's a total hoot.

Everything is explained in this week's podcast, but just keep it to yourself until tomorrow, yeah?

In other news, Mikey, Mark and Gavan get very frightened as they preview Ireland's upcoming Euro 2016 play-off with Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Mark - whose Cavan Man XI continue to defy the odds in real life Fantasy Football - explains how he's created a Cavan Man XI with a difference on the new Football Manager Beta, but has been pipped to the 'Manager of the Year' award by his arch nemesis.

Check out the podcast below, and cheers for listening!
