Liam Brady Gets Upset at RTE's Joke Against Wenger

It’s always refreshing to watch the unrehearsed football analysis and debate from Ireland’s RTE TV network. Author and pundit Eamonn Dunphy is often entertaining to watch and listen to, as are his colleagues Johnny Giles and Liam Brady.

But the Irish duo of Dunphy and Brady caused some controversy in Ireland recently when Dunphy compared Arsene Wenger’s agitated touchline walks to the infamous Ministry of Silly Walks from Monty Python. Brady, a former Arsenal player and head of youth development at the Gunners, reacted angrily to the video on-air.

Brady was obviously caught up in the emotions and forgot his sense of humor. See for yourself in the video below (thanks to TT for the tip).

    Liam Brady… What a Legend. You tell that c*ck Liam.

  2. Clockend Lloydie says:

    LB7 total legend. You should have chinned the tw*t!

  3. Steve says:

    Dunphy was a shite player and he was a shite ghost writer and he is a shite pundit. Is there anything that man isn’t shite at?

  4. MARK GOONER says:

    what a legend brady is the other bloke is a mug and just like the rest of the media, so quick to jump on a defeat well saig Liam if we won the game, what would he have been saying

  5. joe says:

    absolutely right liam, he tried a hatchet job on Wenger and quite rightly you wouldn’t allow him.

  6. Andy says:

    Think you’re missing the point lads, as did Liam Brady. The video reel was intended to show that Wenger has transformed from a quiet reflective manager on the sidelines to an agitated manager who prowls the touchline shouting and gesturing. Why? Because he’s frustrated with his team – they have lost their nerve at the crucial time. For Brady to say that he wouldn’t have gone on the show if he knew that was going to be shown is a joke – a loss of humour as the death-knell sounds on Arsenal’s season.

  7. SFGooner says:

    One could just as easily come up with a comic Alex Ferguson reel, but they never would. The UK media does not show Wenger the deference they do Fergie.

    And I can forgive a true Gooner like Brady for perhaps losing his sense humor – there’s very little to find funny in how hard done Arsenal were by referees in the 2 legs of the Champions League Semi-Final.

  8. Nick C says:

    You go Liam B. He has every right to tell that irish twat to f*** off.

    Taking the piss out of a manager because he cares about his team is classless. That clip is endemic of what is wrong with football media coverage today. Bit rate TV coverage from shite TV channels. I prefer to stream it from the web for free these days.

    Who the f*** is this cock to comment on Wenger? What has he ever done in football? Brady and Wenger are classy proven winners.
    Arsenal may have blown it but i still view this year as progression. After all weren’t we supposed to come 4th?! Watch us next year, we will shove these comments down everyones throats. Long live the gooners.

  9. Dominic says:

    Hi
    Anyone who takes Dunphy seriously is an idiot. The only reason he is on the panel is that he is guaranteed to be controversial, and will say anything even if it contradicts what he said previously.
    Don’t believe me? Well when Brady was playing for the Republic of Ireland and they were just missing out on qualification for tournaments Dunphy was lambasting the side for not getting stuck in and pplaying British style football. As soon as Jack Charlton go the side to 3 major tournaments by playing the way Dunphy advocated, who was on TV loning for the days when Ireland played good football?
    And going back to the 82 world cup when Italy put Brazil out who was the only pundit to say that he was glad to see the back of Socrates and Zico and co? why it was our friend Dunphy.
    In addition people for whom he has gost written books have also complained that what appeared in the book was not what the told him e’g. U2 and Roy Keane.

  10. Anonymous says:

    who is this dumpy player?
    HE’S A CUNT CUS HE DON’T GET ANY PUSSY FROM A IRISH BIRD
    N GRAHAM SOUNESS…YOUR THE BEST MANAGER AREN’T YOU CUS HAVE YOU STAYED AT A CLUB FOR MORE THAN 3 YEARS ? didn’t think so

  11. Arse&Nose says:

    Its seems to be acceptable in the UK to disrespect foreigners no matter who they are and what they contribute. Wenger has helped make the EPL the most exciting league in the world.

    Would they show comic clips like that about Fergie or any British manager? As a Brit I’m ashamed, because it seems the media has double standards when it comes to criticism of foreigners.

  12. Jon says:

    To Andy – I think that you’re actually missing Brady’s point. His point was that the reel was pre-edited and ready to go. They had basically prepared a hatchet job on Wenger without any balance. Was there a similar reel of Benitez? No. I don’t think that Chippy would have lost his cool if there had been a bit of balance. Oh, and Dunphy’s a cunt of the highest order. I just throw that in, if I may.

  13. Simon Burke says:

    Dunphy is an alcoholic, a hatchet man and author of Roy Keanes biography at the time of the 2002 World Cup – he is a vicious vitriloic spewing wan*er of the highest order. Thrown out of more jobs than GLenn Roeder. Just a bitter drunk who slaughters everything before him except his beloved United. Apparently he and Keane fell out though, probably about the time Keano went off with Quinny at Sunderland.
    HOrrible man -onlyhis sheer spite brings in ratings but he doesnt get that he is the joke, we are all in on it but he is a joke.

  14. Inzagi says:

    Brady forgot his sense of humor? RTE’s joke?
    let me tell you , you would need some sense
    of humor to expect this to be a joke, RTE is the only joke in this situation and forget Dunphy for a moment as he only went along with what has been said on this show for the last couple of months, the presenter Bill O’Herlihy has savegly attacked everything and everyone at Arsenal in the last 6 months, his bias towards man utd far exceeds anything i have witnessed on skysports or Setanta, this television station will rather view a foreign champions league game than an Arsenal one. i am Irish and for anybody unaware of this fact 80 percent of this country supports man utd, which for me highlights the stereotype of dumb irish people, this country glorifies scum like Roy Keane & begrudges a man who will not sign players in January just for the hell it, out of repect for the young players in the club, a man who urges his players never to cheat, to be honest with his tactics, honest with his opinions and comments, i am very proud of Liam Brady for standing up against these win at all cost scumbags, Brady got annoyed because he knows that Arsene Wenger deserves more repect than the media has ever shown him, it has less to do with Wenger being a foreigner and more to do with down right jealously, If ferguson had spent the same money as Wenger ,his side wouldn’t even reach the uefa cup, that’s the reality and they know it, and it hurts them, down right jealousy is what it is,
    RTE is a disgrace for allowing these bias so called experts to air their views.
    i will be complaining to RTE directly and i urge everyone to do the same, this was wrong very wrong and it has been going on for way to long.

  15. wonzz says:

    as well on the back page of an english newspaper was the headline APRIL FOOL with arsenes face that is so disrespectfull and i think we arsenal fans need to watch how we refer to arsene on bloggsites as well its scandalous really some of the comments

  16. Jimmy Grimble says:

    Inzaghi, well done, that is probably the best and thought out comment i have ever read on any website post. I’m and Irish gooner also and i agree 100% with everything you said

  17. he was spot on because dunphy is a sap who knows very little about football and pulls it off because he is so called entertainment skills, he jumps on whatever is is hot at the time and i think he is better off left to the radio, he’s a tosser

  18. DutchGooner10 says:

    I agree with INZAGHI.

  19. Dunphy is a Legend says:

    all you cock jockeys calm down. The experts on “skysports topfour” led by that evil cock sucker richard keyes ( what a prick he is) – are morons and havent a patch on the RTE boys. Why? because they dont speak their minds they lick ass, they lick ass so much that shit drips out their mouths , if you asked them what wenger or fergies shit taste like they would tell you in a second. Dunphy is a legend cause he calls it as it is something alien to all of them on skysportstopfour. HAHA fuck liam brady and fuck arsenal wengers a wanker everyone knows it fair play to you Eamon Dunphy your a fucking legend m8.

  20. DutchGooner10 says:

    How typical, a ManU fan that knows more about insults than about football. He’s the sort of man who’d send flowers to a funeral with a card saying ‘Get well soon’.

  21. dunphy is a cunt says:

    and if he could get laid, i would wish aids on him. fucking wanker.

    that faggot can hardly manage writing a book, let alone craft a team.

  22. Nick C says:

    ‘Dunphy is a Legend’. You are a cunt and a typical man u fan. fuck off back to surrey you pikey little cunt. pop over to n.london and us gooner boyz will sort you out. all mouth on the blogs. probably a 12yr old little wanker sitting in your bedroom wanking off to a beckham poster.

  23. clockendrider says:

    The problem is that all the media are happy to lead with facile, lazy, superficial analysis. The solution is to write/e-mail to the editors of newspapers and tv channels and tell them that you will no longer be buying their newspapers due to the low quality of their analysis. That you will no longer be watching anything but the match sections of football programmes as the analysis is not worth listening to and represents wasted time in your life that you will never get back. We live in an age where information and news are free. Why pay for 3rd rate, self-opinionated, biased drivel dressed up as analysis? Make the editors understand the direct correlation between quality and revenue. As soon as they start losing revenue they will begin to act more professionally, not before.
    Here endeth the lesson.
