WITH THE WORLD Cup in full swing, it’s meant that we’re seeing (and more importantly) hearing a lot more Brian Kerr than normal.
The former Republic of Ireland boss is the hardest working man in Irish football and does more research than most pundits combined. Famous for his incredible descriptions of players and the action, he’s become one of our favourite co commentators ever.

Nice shout out to Drimnagh from Brian Kerr👏 pic.twitter.com/feVHSl7NGC— David Bowe (@DavidBoweEire) June 16, 2018
He has no time for players faking injuries.
He just has an incredible way with words.
"...Bolivia played a banger in the match' 🤣🤣😂😂 Brian Kerr is sensational— Gary Grimes (@MrGaryGrimes) June 16, 2018
And his references are utterly incredible.
We’d like him to commentate on everything really.
I won’t lie, I would pay a small sum of money to have Brian Kerr’s voice direct me on Google Maps.— Alan O'Mara (@AOMTHECAT) June 19, 2018
And we mean EVERYTHING.

We’re nearly all agreed on one thing though.
Brian Kerr is an absolute gem and so refreshing. He’s got a few dingers in the back pocket. Always loved him. National Treasure.— MathMan (@YoMathMan) June 18, 2018
We’d fight his corner any day.
Brian Kerr must be protected at all costs— Marcus Oglesby (@marcus_gilly) June 18, 2018

God bless you Brian.
Listening to Brian Kerr using highly specialised Dublin slang to describe the events in exotic football matchups is, for some of us connoisseurs, one of the truest pleasures of the world cup— Tim Groenland (@groenbot) June 19, 2018
