For all you Conor McGregor Bandwagoner’s out there, we at have put together a definitive guide to yet another UFC event, and this time it’s the granddaddy of them all, UFC 205. Why has UFC 205 been so hyped? UFC 205 is easily one of the most anticipated UFC events of recent memory, if not of all time, and there are a couple of reasons for this. Conor McGregor is on the card, obviously! Let’s face it, the fact that ‘The Notorious One’ is on this card increases the entire event’s appeal one hundred-fold. Conor himself has said that fighters are “blessed” to feature on a preliminary card alongside […]

The North London derby is a classic in English football that always delivers on thrills, spills, controversy, big decisions and cards, oh how we love a few cards between these cockney heavyweights. History Of The North London Derby The derby has been in existence for 120 years, with Arsenal first winning the contest one nil way back in 1896. Some say the rivalry really started when Arsenal moved to Highbury, a stadium which was only a stone’s throw from White Hart Lane (albeit a fine 4 mile throw!) Looking back at some of the classics there aren’t many pictures that capture the derby moreso than Thierry Henry sliding towards the […]

With the Champions League back in swing this week we look at the major winners and losers in the last round of fixtures again. Here’s our roundup of who we think came off best and worst in Gameweek 3 of the Champions League. Arsenal I know, it was ‘only’ Ludogorets but still, you can only beat what’s in front of you. Arsenal’s 6-0 trouncing of the minnows was a real statement of intent from a team who are in an excellent run of form and with every game are just looking more and more dangerous. The reason Arsenal are one of my big winners this week is because of the […]

Some cynics would look at Ireland’s EURO 2016 campaign and ask what was won or where is the trophy but it has to be said that it was a very successful campaign for the boys in green. Ireland is not a major footballing nation by any stretch of the imagination which is evident when you consider how big it is just to qualify for a tournament. Some of that team went over to France with doubters and as bit part players in the team and have come home as heroes. Jeff Hendrick was the standout player for Ireland while Robbie Brady stole hearts with his goal against Italy followed by […]

With this weeks Champions League well underway we’re looking to refresh your memory about who had a great round last time out and was pure muck! Let’s get into it right away. Winner – Celtic  For years these guys have been stealing a living at the top table of European football. Let’s face it, they’re not the Celtic of old that would regularly and deservedly compete at the latter stages of Europe’s top competitions. The Scottish league has just fallen by the wayside due to the money being pumped around other leagues. We thought we were finally being proven right when Barcelona stuffed them a fortnight ago but low and […]

Liverpool VS Man United

Is there any game, in English Football, more anticipated than Liverpool v Man United? We at TheSharpe don’t think so. A fixture that’s produced more highlights than ‘Reeling in the Years’, football fans will no doubt be tuning in in their droves come Monday night. Well, you may put a hold on that diet, ‘cause the fact that Liverpool v Man Utd is on Monday night can only mean one thing… Monday pints! It’s never advisable to go too mental of a Monday, but if you do decide to go out for “just the one”, here are a few places we’d recommend: Dicey’s (Harcourt Street) Ah Dicey’s! ‘Tis a great […]

UFC 204 is less than a week out and this is usually around the time that the “Conor McGregor Bandwagoners” come out of the woodwork in search of info that’ll help them impress that one mate who’s been watching UFC since before it was “mainstream”. To save you the trouble of having to scour the internet, we at The Sharpe have put together the definitive “Conor McGregor Bandwagoner’s Guide to UFC 204” with a few extra nuggets thrown in for good measure. Is Conor McGregor fighting? Sorry McGregor fans, ‘The Notorious’ isn’t scheduled to fight until UFC 205, the one after UFC 204 (get it, the numbers are sequential). The […]

Dublin V Mayo Draw

Well here we are again, the third Sunday in September, GAA football’s glory day after the annual Club Final every St. Patrick’s Day. On this Sunday, many believed the stage was set for Mayo to overcome Dublin and take their first All Ireland Senior Football Championship since 1951, having lost 3 finals over the last 10 years. The game started slowly, with only 4 scores after the opening 15 minutes, it looked to be a potential repeat of the 2015 final between Dublin and Kerry which left a sour taste in many fans mouths, expecting far more. David Clark, Mayo’s man between the posts had previously been in top class […]

Who'll The Premier League Breakout Superstar This Year?

Last year, nobody would have tipped early on that Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez would be the stars of the campaign but I think we’ll be going back to the norm this year with the big spending mega rich clubs heading back to the top of the pile and Leicester sliding back down to mid table obscurity. Hopefully they can hold their own and even shake up the Champions League a little bit now that they know who they will be playing and got a nice little group. However, I’m going to go away from Leicester with my tip for who I think will be the big dog of the […]
