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.

LATEST EPISODE

You're here as our falling-out expert; UEFA Nations League (ep. 108)

With John's mom in town we figured the best thing to do to celebrate the occasion was to record the next edition of The Crafty Rogues! This week the boys are discussing the Nations League as well as look ahead to the upcoming Premier League and Champions League action. We get to your emails, John gets something off his chest in Just Be Cos, and our weekly MLS segment from producer Jonathan. The guys close the show with a brand new segment (we're still trying to figure out a name for it) and we go through the nominees for the World XI. All that and more right here on this edition of The Crafty Rogues!

Past Episodes

It was a bit of a busy weekend in the Premier League as the big players head off for International Duty, while at home John headed off for business leaving us to call in the cavalry in Andrew from Golden Valley. Stephen and Andrew, before getting into all the football action, have to discuss Andrew's knighthood worthy game of cricket from the weekend. Once the football talk starts the guys talk all about Allison's howler, the perfect starts by several teams a month in, and Rashford's red. Quinno makes an attempt at explaining what the Nations League is... we still aren't sure either. Instead of writing one in it's time for Andrew to answer the emails. John's out so Andrew gets his ChalkSport segment before producer Jonathan pops in for the MLS segment. The show closes with a couple quick discussions about being an expat and the FIFA awards. All that right here on this edition of The Crafty Rogues!

We don't mention Quinno's Australia getting beat by The All Blacks at the weekend because he's still recovering. They then jump straight into the Premier League action from the weekend including Richarlison being the great signing they predicted, Fat Troy Deeney scoring a goal, and Liverpool winning games this year that they lost last season.

They even invited Minnesota United Manager Adrian Heath to join. He came! For the entire hour! Stephen Quinn and John Cosgrove spent the hour peppering Heath with questions about his playing days (including a few cracking stories), how he got into coaching, coming to America, and MLS & Minnesota United. You, the listener, even got to ask some questions before John got something off his chest in this weeks Just Be Cos. Producer Jonathan turned on his microphone and presented this weeks MLS report. We then introduced a special segment just Inchy himself called Give Him an Inch.
