The Crafty Rogues

A Northern Irishman and an Australian walk into a pub... What could go wrong? John Cosgrove & Stephen Quinn are The Crafty Rogues - your weekly dose of futbol, culture and craic. (No Americans were harmed in the making of this podcast). Cosgrove grew up in the mean green fields of rural Northern Ireland in the glorious era of the 1970's and 80's. As a consequence, he immigrated to America where he learned to play soccer, be nice to girls and use a microphone. As a soccer player in Australia, Quinn was known for his searing pace, breathtaking skills, chiseled God-like physique and wildly vivid imagination. He's now known for his standing, shouting and pointing. Quinno has over 35 years' experience as a writer/presenter/producer. Nobody quite knows how.

At every Crafty Rogues recording at Brit's Pub there are many things we attempt to control: Quinno's coughing, John's pronunciations, Minneapolis weather. But every now and then something slips through the cracks, and this week it was technology. A ghost in the machine means that this week's audio is more than a bit dodgy (technical term) and we apologize profusely. All the usual Crafty Rogues elements are in there (Quinno's coughing, John's pronunciation, Minneapolis weather) but they just sound unwell. Have a crack and see how you go. Hopefully, it's worth the effort.

Cosgrove and Quinno start off discussing the Ranieri sacking and their response against an awful Liverpool side. They also touch on Tottenhams win in the EPL, Chelsea being far too good for Swansea, and United's EFL Cup win.
