After 62 games, the inter-county football season finds itself at the finale. 33 teams began the season with mixed ambitions for the season. New York had a genuine belief of finally winning a championship game, Kerry began their campaign with confidence of ending Dublin’s grasp of dominance over the championship as they had done in the Allianz football league, and the Dubs and Mayo wanted to be back where they had been the year before. Only the latter of these three scenarios came true, with a repeat performance of last season’s epic showdown highly anticipated between the two teams seen as the best the country has to offer. Throw-in is at […]

Before I go any further, if you haven’t read part one of this series where I picked my Irish selection and outlined my tactics and rules for the season, you can read that here. Huddersfield are the team we’ve sacrificed in place of Ireland so from this point forward, we’ll look at their fixtures month by month and where we think the Irish team would finish in the Premier League 17/18. So let’s forget the drab results and understand we have a squad of many Premiership players who should hold themselves to higher standards. Let’s get right into it. AUGUST – 4 Not the most difficult of starts to life […]

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 The less said about this game, the better to be honest. I mean, Ireland were on the back foot as soon as Shane Duffy’s header bulged the net and, […]

10-reasons-why-irish-football-fans-are-still-the-best-in-the-world

Irish fans of all sports are very highly regarded on the world stage. We’re seen as the life of the party at a Conor McGregor fight, the loudest singing crowd in any given stadium, and everyone wants to be seen with the Irish fans for one reason or another. From Chile to Japan, Irish sports fans are extremely popular (except maybe in North Korea, but that’s hardly our fault now!). At any given time, Irish football fans are known for boisterous, good-natured support of their country. With crucial upcoming World Cup qualifier games against Georgia and Serbia on the Road to Russia 2018, we’ve come up with 10 reasons why […]

russia-2018

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 the van with Joxer and the lads, there are still four games left to play, two at home and two away. […]

After 4 years, 186 appearances, 105 goals, and 80 assists, Brazilian winger Neymar has left Barcelona to join PSG in Ligue 1 for a world-record transfer fee worth £200 million (€222 million). The 25 year-old joins Les Parisiens on a five year contract, securing his place in the world’s most expensive signing in football history. Just to put this extravagant deal into perspective, here’s a list of things that PSG could have bought for the same amount that they spent on Neymar; 137 properties in London’s most expensive borough (Kensington). 1,004 four-year degrees for students at MIT. One Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Six Greek Islands. 6.5 metric tonnes of pure gold. […]

Before the championship even began this year, the Cork hurlers were written off as a team who were going nowhere fast. After a poor 2016 season, where they were knocked out in the second round of the qualifiers to Wexford, everyone seemingly forgot that this is Cork hurling we are talking about and it would only be a matter of time before the Cork hurlers were back firing on all cylinders once again. Waterford on the other hand were expected to at least get to the semi-final stage again this year after the heartbreak of losing to Kilkenny in a replay at this stage last year. Derek McGrath’s side haven’t […]

Well, that was a long summer! With no World Cup or Euros to help pass the time, it feels like an eternity since Chelsea lifted the Premier League title, with John Terry bidding us an emotional farewell. Every cloud though, and all the free time has given me the chance to find a few bets for next season. Some bankers, some flyers and some somewhere in between. For what it’s worth, I’m a Man United fan. That shouldn’t be a factor when you’re having a bet though – you should bet with your head and not with your heart. Just ask any Liverpool fan who’s been backing them to win […]

Finishing 3rd in the Premier League, with a semi-final knockout in the FA Cup and a Round of 16 exit in the UEFA Champions League, Pep Guardiola’s first season at Manchester City was steady, but lacking in silverware. Despite only losing 6 league games, Guardiola’s men racked up an unfortunate 9 draws, leaving them 15 points behind current champions Chelsea. Their European venture was inconsistent and ultimately unsuccessful in a gripping 6-6 thriller against Monaco, with the French giants progressing on away goals. While only conceding 1 goal in the 5 games leading up to the FA Cup semi-final, it was The Gunners who would ultimately go on to take […]

Firstly what a great name for a Pay Per View, Battleground, sounds important and impactful, however, there is one problem with Battleground and it has nothing to do with the name of the event. The problem is Smackdown is a bit shit right now and has been for a few months. It just seems like all the good momentum that Smackdown had going into Wrestlemania has been destroyed in the months since. This is really disappointing and unfortunately I don’t see it being a trend that WWE will be able to fix anytime soon. The fact that they have given the WWE Championship to a glorified jobber in Jinder Mahal […]
