Neil Lennon Live: A pizza box, a punch-up and a phonecall from Elton John

We recorded our first live Big Interview just before Christmas when Neil Lennon joined us at Greenock Town Hall. It was a special event and we want to thank esteemed actor - and our good friend - Martin Compston for inviting us along to help raise funds for Ardgowan Hospice.

As you are about to find out, this Big Interview was great fun. Neil can tell a story just as well as he used to retain possession, like when Martin O’Neill dragged his Leicester City players to Yorkshire Ripper murder scenes, or when Noel Gallagher told Neil off for misbehaving before an Oasis gig.

We also talk about player development, with Neil explaining why he believes over-coaching is preventing the emergence of more free-thinking, creative players.

And, of course, his encounters with Barcelona come up too, a team which Neil faced first as a player and later, famously, as a manager.

This is Neil Lennon. Live.
