Who and What Liverpool Need This Summer

By Dean Fitzgerald | June 25, 2017 | (No) | 444
After a somewhat tumultuous season, Liverpool ultimately achieved their prime aim of qualifying for the Champions League. While it is true that they failed in seriously challenging for any of the domestic competitions (apart from a semi-final appearance in the EFL Cup), Champions League qualification should be enough to satisfy the fanbase for now. However, if Jürgen Klopp’s charges are interested in winning silverware next season, there is a lot of work still to be done. In terms of targets,..

Manscaping… Should I?

By Dean Fitzgerald | June 24, 2017 | (No) | 387
Firstly, before we even start, what an odd question to be asking yourself. Do you not have more important things to be doing than worrying about shaving your balls? How did the title make you believe ‘yep, this is the article for me’? If that’s the big thing stuck in your mind, you’re either extremely lucky that this is a genuinely significant and prime problem in your life, or you’ve lost all sense of priorities and this is just a way of hiding from real responsibilities. My guess is ..

Very quickly, articles began to appear celebrating the mega-fight that would reignite this current generation’s interest in boxing, let Mayweather prove to the world that he is indeed the ‘G.O.A.T.’, and shoot Conor McGregor towards unrivalled stardom. Soon followed the articles and opinions that ..

How Much Time is Too Much Time on Social Media?

By Alannah Kenny | June 19, 2017 | (No) | 477
On average, humans are said to spend a total of 5 years and 4 months of their lives on social media. To put that into perspective, we could fly to the moon and back 32 times, or watch the entire Simpsons series 215 times in the amount of time that we will spend on social media… a depressing thought really. Who is using it and why can vary, but demographics show a definite leaning towards young adults and businessmen of the western world as the most avid users. Yet while it hosts an ocean of pe..

Although Money in the Bank is one of WWE’s newer concepts, compared to the Royal Rumble, it has quickly become one of the most highly anticipated events on the WWE calendar.

Can Dublin Win a Seventh Consecutive Leinster Title?

By Evan Coughlan | June 16, 2017 | (No) | 2682

Just look at the monster that Dublin football has become over the past few years, they very well could win the next five Leinster titles and nobody would be overly surprised.
