WATCH: Best of the interviews from this year's Keith Andrews Show

In what has been a very, very busy year for The Keith Andrews Show, we've gathered together some of the most memorable interviews from 2018.

From a six-time All-Ireland winner to a former Champion Jockey, an Irish footballer in Australia to a one-time England manager, the show has thrown up some incredible moments throughout the year.

Enjoy the very best that the show had to offer this year, and roll on 2019!

Philly McMahon 

Beginning at the end, Dublin's Philly McMahon joined Keith in studio in one of the final interviews of 2018.

Going into great detail about what gave Jim Gavin's side their edge, the state of Irish football (and how Stephen Kenny can improve it) and a life-defining moment on a footpath in Ballymun, McMahon was wonderfully insightful, and entertaining as always.

Andy Keogh

In October, former Irish international Andy Keogh joined Keith and Eoin Sheahan on the line. With swirling rumours regarding Usain Bolt's future as a professional footballer in the Australia A-League, the Perth Glory man Keogh was unforgiving in his assessment of the record-breaking sprinter's ability as a footballer.

"Him playing in the A-League, it's not for me," Keogh honestly admitted.

"It's a bit of a kick in the teeth for the professionals that are in the league."

Describing Bolt's first-touch as something similar to a "trampoline," Keogh provided plenty of laughs on The Keith Andrews Show.

AP McCoy

"It could be worse, I could be working for a living."

Looking back on an outstanding career in the saddle, retired jockey AP McCoy joined Keith in studio shortly before this year's Cheltenham festival to discuss how he was adapting to life after horse-racing.

Talking through what he misses in the sport, the inherent dangers that lurk therein, and his love for Arsenal, McCoy offered an invaluable insight into a fascinating life.

Steve McClaren

Alex Ferguson's assistant as Manchester United won the treble in 1999, breaking the stranglehold of Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord in the Dutch Eredivisie, guiding Middlesbrough to their first and only major trophy (and a UEFA Cup final), and, perhaps less memorably, taking charge of the English national team, Steve McClaren has had an astounding career in football.

Joining Keith on the phone back in February, McClaren broke down what was needed to make a success of things at any given club.

Kevin Doyle

Joined in studio by his former teammate Kevin Doyle and Dave McIntyre, Keith and Kevin talked through life under Giovanni Trapattoni, and the disappointment that manifested itself at Euro 2012.

Sifting through what went wrong, neither player was exactly comfortable talking about the "sheer regret" that surrounds those three defeats.

Fascinating nevertheless, Doyle and Andrews are remorseless in their assessment.
