euro 2016

Any time the Euros come around there is huge excitement in the football world but it seems as if there is an added air of excitement around these parts this year about international football’s European showpiece. Not least because Ireland have qualified from a tough group beating the reigning world champions along the way. The fact that the Euros are in France also means there will be a huge number of Irish fans travelling and it promises to be a great spectacle to look forward to. But what can we expect to see on the pitch, both from an Irish point of view and in the tournament as a whole? […]

pep and man city

Next season is going to be one of the most interesting seasons in a long time in the Premier League. Man City, Chelsea and Man Utd will all have new managers at the helm and it promises to be a very interesting battle for not only the title but the top 4 as well. We have known for some time now that Pep Guardiola will take over at the Etihad next season and after managing European heavyweights Barcelona and Bayern Munich, this looks to be Guardiola’s toughest test as a manager. With an aging squad and a raft of underperforming stars, City are not n a good position. Will Guardiola […]

How often would you go to a League of Ireland match? The majority of Irish football fans would rarely go and see their own clubs play on a Friday night. They would sooner sit at home and watch English football on sky sports. And they’d be right too. Irish football over the years has deteriorated. Match attendances have dropped, less money is being invested into the league . The Fai’s main focus is on the national team rather than their own league. This is the just one of the problems surrounding Irish football. I remember growing up, 2007, going to almost every home game for Drogheda United( the year they […]

In what is without doubt the most unpredictable season in living memory. Everything, from the title, to relegation, to a place in the top four is still up for grabs. And if this season keeps going the way it has been since August then the only sure thing is that we have plenty more surprises yet to come. Leicester’s rise means that it is looking increasingly likely that one of the so called big clubs will miss out on a top four finish. At the start of the season no one could have seen Leicester finishing in the top four and in doing so denying one of the big clubs […]
