Our senior analyst is not called our senior analyst for no reason - of all the soccer pundits in Ireland, John Giles was the finest player of them all.

Not only was he a celebrated player for club and country, he also managed Ireland. There is even the John Giles Foundation, a non-profit organisation that helps out kids who need it.

Richie Sadlier can't boast that CV but he does have an impressive one, one that would be a lot bulkier if it were not for injuries. The two were alongside Didi Hamann for last night's coverage of the Arsenal v Monaco Champions League quarter-final when Giles made reference to himself and Hamann playing in "big games" while Sadlier played in "not so big games".

While Giles was quick to say he meant to disrespect, Sadlier laughed it off.
