1. The Stand with Eamon Dunphy
There are a multitude of reasons you should listen to The Stand, including its excellent news and political coverage, but today we're only going to focus on Eamon Dunphy's Monday Premier League review with his compadres, John Giles and Liam Brady.
It's not everyone's cup of tea but in this writer's eyes, it's still a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Sure, you might disgree with some of their viewpoints but you'll be guaranteed an engaging listen and a laugh along the way. For example:
"He's not a centre forward. No way!"
"Is he a left winger, Eamon?"
"I don't think he's even a footballer!"
It's great to have the Dunphy Premier League podcast back.
