ROKER RAPPORT XTRA: w/ STFC Academy Manager & Ex Swindon, Pompey & ROI Midfielder - Alan McLoughlin!

Something a little different for you all this week as our Deep Dive specialist Chris Wynn chats with Swindon Academy Manager and a former Sunderland Wembley nemesis - Mr Alan McLoughlin - about the upcoming match against Swindon Town... after we take him on a trip down memory lane to his times facing us in the league for former sides Swindon, Southampton and Pompey, the Swindon players side of the story following the 1989/90 league playoff final, his memories of growing up with Noel Gallagher around the old Maine Road, being pitch side with Jack Charlton at the World Cup with the Republic of Ireland national side, his time behind the scenes at Portsmouth and getting his shins battered on a regular by one Kevin Ball... As well as his take on the situation at the County Ground, his current role as Academy manager and his thoughts on the difficulties facing teams this season.


All this and much more! Hope you enjoy this chat as much as we did!
