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. But of all the matches that have been played, none share the significance of the games ahead. A win for each county will take the pride of the province and secure a place at the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship quarter-finals in just under a months time. 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 […]

the-final-call

The easy and most logical answer to the question posed in the title of this article is, Yes, of course they can. Just look at the monster that Dublin football has become over the past few years, they very well could win the next five Leinster titles and nobody would be overly surprised. Dublin face off against the winners of the Offaly/Westmeath replay in the Leinster semi-final on Sunday June 25th, then a possible Leinster final against either Meath or Kildare on July 16th. So can the Dubs continue this run of dominance, which has seen them turn the Leinster championship into little more than a stroll over the past […]

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 […]

In the 129 year history of the British & Irish Lions, the Lions have travelled to New Zealand 13 times. In all previous visits to the Land of the Long White Cloud, the British & Irish Lions have only managed to win one test series against the mighty All Blacks, back in 1971. This statistic probably won’t fill the Lions faithful with a whole pile of confidence as their team departs for a six-week long adventure to New Zealand. But despite this stat, there does seem to be a low key sense of optimism surrounding this Lions Tour, as they try to unseat the back to back World Champions in […]

wwe-extreme-rules-header

In years gone by, the words ‘extreme rules’ were synonymous with the glory days of ECW, however, nowadays the WWE have made those words their own, and since 2009 have presented us with an annual, watered-down version of Paul Heyman’s ECW hardcore heaven. Calling this Pay Per View ‘Extreme Rules’ is somewhat ridiculous, especially given the fact that this PPV seems to be getting less and less extreme as years go by. Momentum on Monday Night Raw has stalled in recent weeks, as we begin to see more odd segments that make little to no sense at all. In saying that, the WWE have done this in the past and […]

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. It will be the second time Real and Juventus played each other in a Champions […]
