RTE Panel at war: Who did you think won the battle?

RTE Panel at war: Who did you think won the battle?

Things got a bit heated between Eamon Dunphy and Richie Sadlier during the Champions League post-match analysis last night, and Twitter was pretty much unanimous in deciding who won.

Dunphy and Sadlier were discussing Real Madrid’s failure to make it to the final, and they weren’t sparing each other in the debate.

The two have crossed swords while working together before, but hostilities came out into the open last night, with Sadlier correcting Dunphy on a number of factual errors live on air.

Commenters on social media were clear on who they felt came out of the argument best.

Liam Brady, the third member of last night’s panel, was also included in some of the criticism.

Looks like it's advantage Sadlier going into the final.

Unfortunately, RTE have not released some of the more interesting exchanges - yet.
