on-the-mat-wwe-battleground-2017-preview

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 […]

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 […]

great-balls-of-fire-feature

The hype for this Raw exclusive pay per view has been dominated by the build up for the WWE Universal Championship match featuring Brock Lesnar, in his first defence of the title he won from Goldberg at Wrestlemania back in April. Lesnar is up against Samoa Joe who has looked like an absolute monster since winning the No. 1 contendership at Extreme Rules. Of course, this is just one of several matches taking place this Sunday at the American Airlines Centre in Dallas, Texas, so let’s see if Great Balls of Fire is an event not to be missed. Neville vs. Akira Tozawa (with Titus O’Neil) for the WWE Cruiserweight […]

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 […]

wexford-v-galway-600x300

Nobody who knows anything about hurling would have predicted that Wexford, who have flattered to deceive over the past couple of years, would reach this year’s Leinster Senior Hurling Championship final. However, thanks to the appointment of Davy Fitzgerald as manager, Wexford have reached their first Leinster final since 2008. Facing off against Davy Fitz and his team of yellow bellies are the men from West Leinster, Galway. Michéal Donoghue’s men have had a great 2017 season so far, and will come into this final as heavy favourites after their demolition job of Dublin and Offaly in the previous rounds of the Leinster SHC. But can Galway claim a second […]

four-provincial-championship-finals-one-massive-preview

After last weekends semi-finals were decided, the wheels were in motion for all of the 2017 GAA Senior Football Championship provincial finals. It’s been a hectic few months for players, battling in and out of the AIB Club Championship and fighting through the Allianz Football League.

Let’s have a look at these four massive finals and what the fans can look forward to over […]

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 […]

mayweather-vs-mcgregor-who-benefits-more-boxing-or-mma

Last week, the rumours were confirmed and the media went into a frenzy. We retweeted, liked and shared until our thumbs bled, and sports accounts with the word Lad in their names almost imploded. Very quickly, articles began to appear celebrating the mega-fight that would reignite this current generation’s interest in boxing, let Mayweather prove to the world that he is indeed the ‘G.O.A.T.’, and shoot Conor McGregor towards unrivalled stardom. Soon followed the articles and opinions that weren’t conjured by sexually frustrated fourteen year olds, as more balanced views of this fight were expressed. Concerns were raised about the general lopsided nature of the fight, given the fact that […]

Although Money in the Bank is one of WWE’s newer concepts, compared to the Royal Rumble, it has quickly become one of the most highly anticipated events on the WWE calendar. Thanks in no small part to the unpredictable nature of who is going to win the coveted briefcase and when are they going to cash in their championship opportunity. This year WWE are showcasing two Money in the Bank ladder matches, the traditional men’s match and for the first time ever, a women’s Money in the Bank ladder match. This Money in the Bank event is a Smackdown exclusive pay per view and with these two ladder matches, as […]
