World Cup Play-Off: Ireland vs. Denmark – Ireland’s Key Players

By Evan Coughlan | November 10, 2017 | (No) | 938
In November 2015, Jonathan Walters wrote himself into Irish footballing folklore after scoring two goals in the Euro 2016 play-off against Bosnia to send the Irish team to France. We placed that moment pretty highly on our list of Ireland’s most memorable play-offs! Now in November 2017 Ireland find themselves in a play-off yet again, this time against Denmark, and you know what, we fancy our chances! Martin O’Neill has announced the squad that will try and take Ireland to its first Worl..

The Republic of Ireland’s Most Memorable Play-Offs

By Evan Coughlan | November 7, 2017 | (No) | 1164
Well, somehow we’ve done it again. After the disappointment of Ireland’s World Cup qualifying matches in September, it looked very unlikely that the boys in green would be in the mix for a World Cup play-off come November. Lo and behold, after Scotland did us a favour by beating Slovakia and then drawing with Slovenia, we were now in with a chance of getting a play-off spot. Now, all we had to do was beat Wales in Cardiff and our play-off spot was secure; no small feat, mind you. After a bea..

James McClean: The Rise Of The Republic’s Footballing Hero

By Evan Coughlan | October 16, 2017 | (No) | 2839
Phew…. has everyone recovered from what happened on that marvellous evening in Wales? I’m sure there are a few people who haven’t even made it back from Cardiff yet! Well, yet again, we had one of those nights, where somehow, we got a win when we needed it most. After looking back on the goal for about the 673rd time, I can confirm that James McClean, if he wasn’t already, is now up there with the past greats of the Irish team, but what about James McClean, the man. McClean has becom..

What Can We Expect From Rio Ferdinand’s Move Into Boxing?

By Evan Coughlan | October 7, 2017 | (No) | 498
A few weeks ago people looked at their phones bemused as it was announced that former England captain Rio Ferdinand would begin a new career as a boxer. Rio, one of the finest centre halves in the modern game made the announcement in association with Betfair, who will help him gain a boxing license from the British Boxing Board of Control. The Man United legend will be part of Betfair’s Defender to Contender challenge, as they follow him from his first sparring session to his pro debut in a fe..

What Does the Future Hold for Brock Lesnar in WWE?

By Evan Coughlan | October 1, 2017 | (No) | 763
Believe it or not it has now been over five years since Brock Lesnar returned to WWE the night after Wrestlemania 28. In that time, Lesnar has had one of the greatest runs in pro wrestling history, of course this is helped by the fact that he doesn’t work every single pay per view and only ever appears on a few episodes of Raw in the lead up to a PPV. Lesnar remains an enigma in the WWE, fans are still unsure if they should boo or cheer the Minnesota native and lately they have been quite unde..

Everything You Need to Know About Amazon Prime

By Evan Coughlan | September 24, 2017 | (No) | 454
Due to the explosion and popularity of Netflix as the go to streaming service over the past few years, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the only video-on-demand service available in Ireland. However, this is most definitely not the case as Amazon Prime launched in Ireland late last year. Amazon Prime offers you pretty much the same thing as Netflix, new exclusive content, classic TV shows and movies. If your interested in the service but aren’t quite sure what it’s all about t..

Netflix has become the go to streaming site in Ireland over the past few years, with pretty much everybody having their own Netflix account, or cheekily using someone else’s password, hang your head in shame lads! If you use Netflix for streaming the latest must watch show or for a bit of Netflix ‘n’ Chill with your significant other, one thing you know for certain is that you spend most of your time wondering what to actually watch! Well stop wasting precious time scrolling through genre..

World Cup Qualifier Preview: Ireland v Serbia

By Evan Coughlan | September 3, 2017 | (No) | 1069
Despite drawing 1-1 against Georgia, Ireland still find themselves in with a chance of winning the group, however a play-off place does seem a lot more likely. Currently in second place, two points behind group leaders Serbia and two ahead of the group’s top seed, Wales, the Boys in Green have just three games left to secure their place in Russia next summer. Can Ireland do it? Well, here’s how we think Ireland’s tell-all game against Serbia will play out. Georgia v Ireland T..

The Road To Russia 2018: Who Are Ireland’s Star Performers?

By Evan Coughlan | August 29, 2017 | (No) | 389
The Republic of Ireland team have passed the halfway point in their World Cup qualifying campaign and as things currently stand in Group D, Martin and Roy’s Boys are level on points with Serbia at the top, and are only two goals behind them on goal difference. Ireland have a four point cushion over Wales and Austria who lie in third and fourth respectively and maybe, just maybe we, as a nation, can start getting excited about a trip to Moscow next summer. However, before we start loading up th..
