Is Man Flu Real?

By theSharpeUser | December 19, 2016 | (No) | 1571
While currently looking at the computer through cloudy eyes with a blocked nose, sore throat and pleghm-filled mouth, I sadly have to type the words that man-flu is simply make believe. Some studies have suggested it is testosterone related meaning that all minor ailments such as colds and flus are far more insufferable by men. A reduced immune system due to testosterone allows minor ailments to hit us harder than the fairer sex. However, there is one massive factor that sets us aside from women..

Crazy News You Missed Last Week

The news can be really depressing these days and sometimes it’s nice to switch off and find some idiots to laugh at. So we’re trying to do our part to help give you a laugh. Check out this weird news from last week which you might have missed… Man Saves His Dog By now, most of us will have seen the clip of an Australian man hitting a kangaroo with a right hook to free his dog from a deadly headlock. The kangaroo had the man’s dog trapped until the hunter ran at both animals b..

The Workman’s Club Dublin – Review

By Geoff Dorrity | December 18, 2016 | (No) | 2880
Rating What makes a good music venue these days? A dynamic atmosphere, quality DJ’s, sound staff, cheap booze and perhaps most importantly a place that doesn’t require you to show up at the door in any sort of made-to-measure elegant attire. Well if you’re looking for a taste of all of the above, most people will tell you that you are bang out of luck and are asking too much of one venue, given the variety of clubs and bars that Dublin has to offer for differing desires. With the Workman..

Is There A Formula To Online Dating In Ireland?

By Aidan Clarke | December 16, 2016 | (No) | 1471
Let’s call a spade what it is here, if there was an effective formula for online dating there would probably be no single people; none, a whole cohort of people extinct. Writers of books, articles, songs, poems, television shows about the woes and delights of the heart would be unemployed. A multi-billion-dollar enterprise and its treasure trove of personal information about 100’s of millions of people and those they employ, gone. The whole industry is designed specifically to play off the f..

Hull, Swansea and Leicester – Why They’ll Be Relegated This Season!

By Darren Bates | December 15, 2016 | (No) | 1612
Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned relegation dog fight? Every game’s just more exciting when there’s a proverbial 6 points on the line, and although we’ve not even opened our Christmas presents yet, some Premier League teams are already making strong cases as to why they’ll be relegated this season. Although it’s by no means a foregone conclusion, here’s who we at TheSharpe believe will be playing in the English Championship come August 2017. Hull Newly promoted teams are alway..

Anthony Joshua v Eric Molina Preview

By Karl Bates | December 10, 2016 | (No) | 2376
Joshua v Molina Preview December 10th in the Manchester Arena see’s heavyweight fan favourite Anthony Joshua (defending) take on American Eric Molina for the IBF World Heavyweight Title. It will be Joshua’s third outing since stopping fellow British heavyweight Dillan Whyte in December of last year. Joshua has won all 17 of his fights in the paid ranks by KO/TKO and let’s face it, 34 year old Molina has little or no chance of beating the gold medal winning Olympian. Joshua even hinted that..

The Next Social Media Trend You Haven’t Heard About Yet

By theSharpeUser | December 7, 2016 | (No) | 1357
Social media is constantly abuzz with what’s new, what’s hot, and what can distract you for thirty seconds as you scroll down your timeline. In the past month alone there’s been the mannequin challenge, the grey sweatpants challenge, and torrential memes with everything from smug babies to sorrowful dogs in Halloween costumes. There have been legendary trends such as the much maligned Harlem Shake and ‘Damn Daniel’, as well as a legion of virulent activities that sprang from the platfo..

Does Christmas Start Too Soon These Days?

By theSharpeUser | December 5, 2016 | (No) | 761
Christmas is a time of unabashed joy, comfort and togetherness, enjoyed with friends and family at home as the year draws to a close. Or at least, that is what the tagline is supposed to be. It can be difficult to channel your Christmas spirit when there are still pumpkins in shop windows and it’s not even particularly cold outdoors. Why does it sometimes feel like Christmas gets earlier every year, and does dragging it out make it more of a chore than a holiday? Christmas Creep This is a merc..

Can RB Leipzig Become Football’s Next Leicester City?

By Geoff Dorrity | December 4, 2016 | (No) | 2429
This weekend marked the 9th consecutive win for newly promoted Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, a record which no team in the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1 or the Eredivisie has been able to match this season. Die Roten Bullen, also known as the Red Bulls, beat Schalke in an exciting encounter at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday evening to go top of the table; they now stand 3 points clear of last year’s champions Bayern Munich. So Who Are RB Leipzig? The club was founded on the 19th of ..
