Phew…. has everyone recovered from what happened on that marvellous evening in Wales? I’m sure there are a few people who haven’t even made it back from Cardiff yet! Well, yet again, we had one of those nights, where somehow, we got a win when we needed it most. After looking back on the goal for about the 673rd time, I can confirm that James McClean, if he wasn’t already, is now up there with the past greats of the Irish team, but what about James McClean, the man. McClean has become a household name due, in part, to his exploits on the field for the Republic as well as […]

A few weeks ago people looked at their phones bemused as it was announced that former England captain Rio Ferdinand would begin a new career as a boxer. Rio, one of the finest centre halves in the modern game made the announcement in association with Betfair, who will help him gain a boxing license from the British Boxing Board of Control. The Man United legend will be part of Betfair’s Defender to Contender challenge, as they follow him from his first sparring session to his pro debut in a few months time. So can Rio actually forge a new career for himself in the world of boxing? Well we here […]

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 […]

Believe it or not it has now been over five years since Brock Lesnar returned to WWE the night after Wrestlemania 28. In that time, Lesnar has had one of the greatest runs in pro wrestling history, of course this is helped by the fact that he doesn’t work every single pay per view and only ever appears on a few episodes of Raw in the lead up to a PPV. Lesnar remains an enigma in the WWE, fans are still unsure if they should boo or cheer the Minnesota native and lately they have been quite underwhelmed by his WWE Universal title defences. With Lesnar’s WWE contract up after […]

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 […]

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 […]

mayo-vs-dublin-all-ireland-football-final-2017-preview

After 62 games, the inter-county football season finds itself at the finale. 33 teams began the season with mixed ambitions for the season. New York had a genuine belief of finally winning a championship game, Kerry began their campaign with confidence of ending Dublin’s grasp of dominance over the championship as they had done in the Allianz football league, and the Dubs and Mayo wanted to be back where they had been the year before. Only the latter of these three scenarios came true, with a repeat performance of last season’s epic showdown highly anticipated between the two teams seen as the best the country has to offer. Throw-in is at […]

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, […]
