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. […]

the-premier-league-team-you-could-buy-instead-of-neymar

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. […]

premier-league-trophy-feature

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 […]

pep-guardiolas-big-man-city-buys-make-or-break

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 […]

how-would-an-all-irish-team-do-in-the-premiership-part-1

There are great arguments in life and sport that make for some great debate. From the simple yet effective ‘my da would beat your da in a fight’ all the way to ‘Celtic would challenge for the Premier League title’. There are just some things that we are never going to know the answer to so I’ve decided to apply my thought process on one question that I can’t help but wonder about… How would an all Irish selection get on in the Premier League? Now I know it would be easier to say the Republic of Ireland team but I’m not Martin O’Neill so I’ll be making my own […]

10-premier-league-free-agents-that-your-club-could-sign-this-summer

Demba Ba, James Milner, Sol Campbell, and Zlatan Ibrahimović – what have they all got in common? Apart from being exceptional football players, they have all joined the Premier League as a free agent at one stage in their careers. The 1st of July marked the end of the road for dozens of Premier League players, who have now become available on a free transfer. With the Pep Guardiola revolution in full swing, and Mourinho and Koeman looking to shake things up, it’s no surprise that some potentially quality signings are up for grabs. As transfer fees continue to skyrocket, we have looked at 10 free agents from the Premier […]

confederations-cup-final-preview-chile-v-germany

The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup final will be held on Sunday, July 2nd, at the Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The winners of 2015 Copa America, Chile, will be facing current world champions, Germany. Both finalists are taking part in their first Confederations Cup final. For Chile, this is their first participation in a Confederations Cup, while Germany is making its third, and best, appearance. Chile… How They Got Here For the 2015-2016 period, Chile were probably the best football team in South America. Their squad won the 2015 Copa America and then the Copa America Centenario (a special tournament held in celebration of 100 years of the tournaments […]

who-and-what-liverpool-need-this-summer

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, Champions League football next season is a major attraction, which may swing a player’s decision in the Merseyside direction. Quality Looking at the current squad for the season just gone […]

managerial-vacancies-who-next-for-sunderland-crystal-palace-leeds-united

With the season’s end of both the Premier League and the Sky Bet Championship there were plenty of managers given the axe and a few who went of their own accord. Three time winner of the Russian Premier League, Leonid Slutsky, recently became the new manager at Hull City after Marco Silva opted for a switch to Watford. Former Foxes boss, Claudio Ranieri, looked a serious contender for a return to English football, but that move was ruled out after Ligue 1 side, Nantes, announced his appointment this week. So now we look to the remaining clubs who are still trying to fill managerial vacancies and who the most likely […]

the-2017-champions-league-final-preview

The 2017 Champions league final will be played on June 3rd 2017 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. Like it has been since the 2004-2005 edition, the tournament’s final will feature two teams from what many consider to be the four top tier leagues (La Liga, Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga). In this case, the 11 time winner of the Champions League Real Madrid, play against the two times winner Juventus FC. The winner of the final will qualify to the semi-finals of the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup as the representative of UEFA.
