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 and Quinn touch on the latest happenings with Minnesota United FC, Major League Soccer (MLS), the Premier League (EPL), La Liga, Bundesliga and more! 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.
