podcast-imageMark Cooper joins Harry Brady this week to discuss the men who stood in front of last weeks keepers, the defenders.  Historically known as the sieve for its porous attributes Mark and Harry review the famous MoN back three before moving on to a general discussion of the full backs and centre halves in the more traditional back 4’s which followed.


Mark’s affection for Izzy and MacNamara are not hidden well, nor is his indifference to Paul Telfer.
