In part 2 of the interview, Paul and Andrew chat about his new book on the life and career of Johnny Doyle and the dept of detail he has researched to get the true picture of Johnny on and off the park.
Paul also looks back on the Invincible season, Why he wrote the book and how good a season it really was when the board, the players, the management and the fans were all United during that time which is a far cry from this season. He gives his opinion on Brendan Rodgers now and then.
Kieran Tierney a player who was ever present during that Invincible season gets talked about as does Tommy Burns who he tells the listeners had also contemplated leaving Celtic to improve his financial situation. Tommy when playing for Celtic relied on a league win bonus to bring his family on holiday.
