Following our calculation in Part 2 of this series that our Ireland selection would finish the Premier League season with a final total of 49 points, it’s safe to say that they would not be in danger of relegation. If you’re just joining the party, then you might want to take a look at Part 1 of the series which looked at our all Irish team, tactics and rules for the season. The Stats Taking the points totals from all of the 22 full 20-team Premier League seasons so far completed, the average finishing position is 10th spot with the final positions ranging from 8th up to 14th. When you […]

5-interesting-bets-for-irelands-final-world-cup-qualifiers

It’s all come down to this. Massive performances, huge let downs, deeply annoying bad luck, all will be forgiven if Ireland were to overcome the odds and beat both Moldova and Wales to book a spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The likelihood isn’t exactly optimistic. Yet we wait with bated breath for the Boys in Green to give what they have left for the jersey and make us proud to be Irish football fans once again. Knowing the odds are stacked against the Irish makes it even more poetic, that we should give advice on a few bets come the last round of qualifying games. For sports […]

attractive-football

I’m a Liverpool fan, and as a Liverpool fan I want them to play attractive football and I want them to win games. However, I’m not the stereotypical fan that thinks this will be our year, that Klopp can do no wrong and, because of our history, we deserve something today. Re-read that last paragraph, does anything stand out as odd to you? “I want Liverpool to play attractive football and I want them to win games”, contains two oddities in my mind. Firstly, what is “attractive football”? Surely, winning football matches is attractive. Attractive Football – Pick Your Favourite The ball on the ground, starting with the keeper, moving […]

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. […]

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 […]
