This is stragetically a good thing. The generic 'best fans in the world' will be watching this show, as will the barstoolers. So a whole new audience gets to see LoI highlights.

But that makes sense, stick to whinging about the RTE illuminati being out to destroy the league

I thought it wasn't a bad effort, but the free kick idea didn't work and the ability or inability of Rovers players to go close made it worse.
 
I doubt Boy Z that we'll see refereeing issues getting a proper airing.  Thoroughly agree that some of the red cards dished out were the usual awful calls, but the FAI will probably have briefed SocceRepublic to just give refereeing lip service without giving it the debate it deserves.
 
Agree also totally that the CL segment is completely irrelevant, if it's a show about L of I/Irish international issues, well fook the CL, that gets Live coverage Wednesday nights, we do get enough of it.
 
But overall, I thought it was an improvement in terms of presentation on MNS that had become completely stale and boring and I think SocceRepublic can and will get better.
 
The dominance of Rovers in the show was deadly however.

I work with TV ratings and I can tell you definitively that Against The Head got better viewing figures in 2013 than MNS. 

That's comparing the average viewing to both across the whole year. Having said that, there were a lot more MNS shows than Against The Head.

I'm not going to post the numbers because I don't work for RTE and the info could be considered commercially sensitive.

What is your source? Mine is TAM Ireland/Nielsen.

What figures are you using? 1+ min cumulative reach or average thousands and share? I'm using the latter.

What audience are you looking at? I've chosen all Individuals over the age of 4. A standard audience.

What time period are you looking at? I'm taking the full calendar year of 2013.

Watched it this afternoon. It was just as bad as MNS but it is our only source of LOI coverage so beggars can't be choosers. I don't like to see non LOI stuff in the show but I understand the producers want to get non football fans to watch. To achieve this thye must be seduced by some ex-Internationals and some foreign coverage of UCL etc. It is something that we will have to get used to but if it is a means to an end and we get a regular show to highlight the league. On the plus side it is no TV3 LOI show. Paul Osman, Trevor Welch and Pat Scully after midnight was way too much and before the days of sky plus.
 
Anyway, scrap that free kick wank ConfusedConfused that celeb six thing is also a terrible idea. We have 33 match nights but as a country do we even have 33 celebrities? Also get McDonnell away from that gadget yoke, he is like a special needs Gary Neville trying to work it.
 
Also, Jimmy McGee but a sock in it, or I'll put my cock in it.
 
Good show

Was after the Champions League in the end  I watched it.  Bad production that they had so much rovers on the first night.
