After recent World Cup qualifiers, RTE have been running an extended World Cup Extra on the Web – where the panel continue to talk about Andy Reid enlighten “real football people” for an extra half hour.
But there has been a few teething problems.
This time, the show was rolling a good sixty seconds before the lads realised, during which a weary Billo enquired of a mystery visitor:
“Oh, you’re directing this are you? Yeah, I’m grand. Sure at this stage, I couldn’t care less.”
And shorn of his very raison d’etre, Eamo was even more frank:
“This isn’t on the fucking television.”
Thankfully Big Ron hadn’t got a call up.
Once things settled down, there wasn’t a huge appetite for discussing the match any further. Instead, the focus soon turned to Eamo’s incredible air guitar performance on “The Cafe”.
Eamo: “That was the world champion. I thought I made him look rubbish.”
Gilesy: “He used more energy there than when he played in the international team.”
