Declan Marron and Macdara Ferris bring you a sort of sequel to our Christmas book special to suggest some good reads to stave off any cabin fever

Full Time - The Secret Life Of Tony Cascarino by Paul Kimmage (12.25) gets a lot of focus as Dec found it in a bargain bin and underestimated how good it was. 

Former Limerick FC assistant manager John Grehan (now of Treaty Utd, formerly known as Limerick Utd) discusses the difficulties faced with filling the void Limerick FC had seemingly left at the beginning of the season and the future of academy football in the county (28.08). 

And our own Dylan O’Connell dials in to tell us the latest about Cork City’s takeover and how the current financial problems came about (47.17)

The Books discussed on this week’s podcast are:

Futebol: The Brazilian Way Of Life - Alex Bellos
A Season With Verona - Tim Parks
Fever Pitch - Nick Hornby 
Full Time: The Secret Life Of Tony Cascarino - Paul Kimmage
Open - Andre Aggasi/ J.R. Moehringer
