The pundits that are actually analysing certain games can be the difference between watching RTÉ or ITV. If Dunphy is on for the Irish channel or if Keane is in the hot seat for ITV, you know there is going to be snippets of comedy gold.
Same goes for Martin O’Neill. It’s fair to say that the man knows what he’s on about when it comes to football.
He found himself on American television on Thursday night and it was definitely not the same as doing Match of the Day or answering questions from Tony O’Donoghue.
What game is this American show analysing? It doesn’t matter a feck because soon, attention turns to O’Neill’s hair from his playing days.
“Look at your hair,” the host says before O’Neill admits that he thinks he’s uglier now than he was back then, “I quite like that photograph.”
O’Neill fire a question at the host that is on everybody’s lips: “I just met you, I like you but are you a bit mad?”
And his reply surely answered O’Neill’s question:
“I got it,” says O’Neill as the host plants on firmly on his head before waving goodbye to the viewers.
Makes a difference from Brady and Dunphy fighting with each other, we suppose.
