Ep 8: Bumper League of Ireland Preview – Daire O’Connor (#10, Cork City), Colin Brett (CEO, PlayerStatData) & WatchLOI.

Busy show this week, as we discuss the resumption of the League of Ireland.

WatchLOI is the new streaming service for the league. Can it be sustained in the future?

We chat with Daire O’Connor (#10, Cork City) on lockdown, Zoom training, working under different managers, style of play, playing without fans and his views on WatchLOI.

Colin Brett (CEO, PlayerStatData) joins us to talk about setting up PlayerStatData, focussing on the League of Ireland, what’s involved with collecting stats, what exactly is a progressive pass and how Glen Johnson ended his interest in the Premier League. 

We end the show by asking how can the League of Ireland win over Irish fans who only watch the Premier League?
