This week on The Buildup podcast, there's another line-up change, as Sean and Donny take over the reins for the week.

Ladbrokes ambassador Kevin Doyle chats to the lads about the need for Shane Long in the Ireland squad, the Mauricio Pochettino-shaped hole on Manchester United's touchline and tales of extreme weather.

They're also joined by PJ Browne for another edition of 'Guess the Handicaps' with PJ looking to avenge the defeat that Donny dished to him last week.

Finally, the two lads get us hyped for the upcoming start to the League of Ireland, with Balls' resident League of Ireland head Sean waxing lyrical about the League at large. Sean also tries his hand at the Big Shout.
