By theSharpeUser | November 16, 2016 | (No) | 2048
Thanks to the omnipresence of social media, some people cannot distance themselves from their phone and refrain from documenting every minute detail of their lives.

Other than that, maybe a trip to the cinema or something else not too formal seems to be the norm. But we are getting slightly better at dating thanks to the web and Tinder. Here are five things that the lads h..

By theSharpeUser | November 13, 2016 | (No) | 1236
The simple answer, Spain. To find the very best players in the world, you simply have to look at the front three of the respective Spanish giants, Real Madrid and Barcelona. While Barcelona is built on skill and speed, Real Madrid is more focused on power and speed but equally as deadly all the same. What is World Class?

The event, now in its seventh year has been referred to as the “Glastonbury for geeks”, boasted a powerful lineup of sports stars and celebrities from Ronaldinho to Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

By Geoff Dorrity | November 6, 2016 | (No) | 1234
The North London derby is a classic in English football that always delivers on thrills, spills, controversy, big decisions and cards, oh how we love a few cards between these cockney heavyweights. History Of The North London Derby The derby has been in existence for 120 years, with Arsenal first winning the contest one nil way back in 1896.
