Top 5 Prospects For The Republic Of Ireland In 2016

By theSharpeUser | July 29, 2016 | (No) | 889
A productive, but not excellent, EURO 2016 is behind us and all roads lead to Russia for the 2018 World Cup. It’s almost inevitable that the core of the Irish team for the last 10 years is about to be ripped apart with retirements. As the news breaks on the confirmed departure of Shay Given and both John O’Shea and Robbie Keane looking destined to exit international football sooner rather than later. But all hope is not lost because Ireland do have a couple of tricks up there sleeve. Here..

Glenn Whelan-What are we missing?

By theSharpeUser | July 24, 2016 | (No) | 498
For years now Glenn Whelan has been a mainstay in the Irish team. Both Giovanni Trappatoni and Martin O ‘Neill have trusted Whelan to anchor their midfield. It’s fair to say that Whelan has not always been a fan favourite with many questioning what he brings to the team and if his perceived conservative play is hindering the national side. Whelan has often been the go to man for criticism after defeats, with the media and fans questioning his talent and effectiveness in a vital position on t..

Is Rugby the Ultimate Jersey Follower Sport?

By theSharpeUser | July 23, 2016 | (No) | 834
“Rugby is a thug’s game played by gentleman while soccer is a gentleman’s game played by thugs.” A common phrase uttered when comparing the two sports, mostly by the pro-rugby troupe when you consider the ideology being expressed. But aside from the on field matters, let’s take a look and what many consider to be the heart and soul of any sport. It’s not the multi-millionaire stars, it’s not the sponsors and it’s certainly not the owners and bigwig board members. The fans..

What To Do On A First Date

By theSharpeUser | July 23, 2016 | (No) | 666
The first date has to be one of the most daunting tasks us as humans have to endure. No matter how many first dates you’ve been on you still feel the same as you did the first time. And it’s no surprise we get nervous each time as it’s a make or break deal with the other half you spend it with. This date could either be the first and last, or the first of many depending on what you do with it. So treat your first date like it’s your last and make the most of it. Let’..

What Next The County Player?

By theSharpeUser | July 23, 2016 | (No) | 461
The GAA, the amateur organisation with the professional attitude. The time for having a fag while you were getting your half time team talk is long behind us. Not only will you be kept away from the pub the night before a match, you might be kept away from it for six months at a time. It’s not a game anymore, it’s a lifestyle. Follow any county player on twitter, Instagram or snapchat and you’ll see posts about meal prep, gym programs etc. But what’s next for this, the first generation o..

The Benefits Of The Podcast

By theSharpeUser | July 23, 2016 | (No) | 604
They’ve been discredited for being a waste of time on a number of occasions by people who just don’t recognise their purpose but podcasts are quite useful for people in the broadcasting or publishing worlds. Radio DJs, TV presenters and Journalists all spend their time searching and trying to find as much content as they can to fill their show or paper. If you don’t have time or space to utilise it all, a nice way to keep audience who would have been interested in that story is a podcast. ..

The Most Bizarre Accounts Snapchat has to Offer

By theSharpeUser | July 23, 2016 | (No) | 571
Snapchat has some strange accounts to follow, you have your celebrity figures who will post everything ranging from the ordinary to the downright insane. Here’s a couple of my favourites and even one or two that you should be avoiding at all costs!! Rickie Fowler – @rickiefowler15 The pro golfer hit the big time over the spring months this year when he took a Spring Break holiday with fellow PGA Tour golfers Smylie Kaufman, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. The antics of the four young go..

How To Pick The Right Sunglasses

By theSharpeUser | July 23, 2016 | (No) | 703
Summer is in full swing now and even though we live in a country where the sun is not a regular visitor, a good pair of shades is a must. With so many different brands and styles to choose from most people will buy the first half decent pair they see. But is it worth looking around for a good pair or does it even matter at all when it comes to brands and styles? In this article we look at what you should be looking out for when you choose your next pair of shades. First and foremost when you are..

How To Handle Renting With Strangers

By theSharpeUser | July 18, 2016 | (No) | 720
With the rental market in Ireland and particularly in Dublin being what it is, the chances are that at some point you will have to rent a house with a person or people you don’t know. This can be a strange experience not least because it is natural to share your home with family or at least people you know. But such is life that this may not always be possible and in this article we look at how to make the best of this situation should it arise. One of the most important things to remember whe..

What To Expect This Season In The Premiership

By theSharpeUser | July 17, 2016 | (No) | 352
It’s hard to remember a season which has promised to be as intriguing as the 2016/17 season. With both Manchester clubs bringing in high profile managers who happen to be bitter rivals along with Antonio Conte taking over at Chelsea and the fact that Jurgen Klopp will have had a pre season at Liverpool makes it interesting times for a number of clubs. And that is without mentioning reigning champions Leicester and an improving Spurs. Throw into the mix an Arsenal team desperate to win the leag..
