With the evenings getting longer and the sun even making the odd appearance, there’s only one thing left that signals the beginning of summer. the GAA Football and Hurling Championships have begun. Will Dublin be able to claim three in a row, are Kilkenny a spent force and will the #Mayo4Sam Brigade ever break “The Curse of ’51”? The traditionalists amongst us will consume The Sunday Game and take in the opinions of Spillane, Loughnane and Brolly and that’s it. Thankfully with the advent of on-demand audio, we’re now able to get more opinions and discussion points from former players than ever before. So, if you are sick of seeing Joe […]

The Championship play-off final is often referred to as the richest game in football, and for good reason! The winning team will not only earn promotion to the Premier League, but they’ll also receive a guaranteed £170 million piece of the TV broadcast rights pie. So, on May 29th in a jam-packed Wembley Stadium, the pressure will be on Huddersfield Town and Reading FC as they battle it out to see who’ll join already promoted Newcastle and Brighton in the top flight, next season. Below, we’ll remember how Huddersfield and Reading both got through their difficult semi-finals, and look ahead to what we can expect from the final on Monday. […]

The Europa League was once a competition that was treated with disdain by managers across European football’s biggest leagues. Long journeys, Thursday night matches, and a lack of quality all contributing to the general indifference to the competition.  However, with Champions League qualification as the carrot on the stick, it’s no wonder that we are seeing high profile clubs battle it out at the business end of the competition in the past couple of seasons. On Wednesday, Manchester United will attempt to clinch a place in next year’s Champions League, when they contest the Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm. The importance of the game cannot be stressed enough, […]

In years gone by, Backlash was the main Pay Per View coming out of Wrestlemania and, on an occasion or two, even managed to upstage the granddaddy of them all. Iconic rematches, like Backlash 2000, when The Rock beat Triple H for the WWE title with help of Stone Cold Steve Austin comes to mind. Sadly, the Attitude Era’s long gone and the Backlash of old is too. Saying that, this Smackdown exclusive Pay Per View, which takes place in Chicago, does have many intriguing matches, and were going to take a look at everything on offer. Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English The Perfect 10’s debut on the main roster […]

For the past four seasons, the Parisians have been the only show in town in the French League. Their financial capabilities enabled them to appear from a relative wilderness at the beginning of the decade, and become one of the trendiest teams on the continent. Such was their dominance, many questioned the overall standard of the French league. Their national achievements were not valued, especially when they often struggled to reproduce their form on the European stage. For a player, leaving the Spanish, German or English leagues to join PSG, was often met with distain. A cop out, of sorts. “I’m sure the wife is only mad to go shopping […]

wwe-payback-2017

In previous years, the WWE have come out of Wrestlemania with all the momentum in the world, only to somehow manage to blow it before the next pay per view comes around. Thankfully, that’s not to be the case this year as they’ve managed to keep people’s interests going into Payback, this Sunday, and this is in no small part to the momentum that Braun Strowman currently has after his destruction of Roman Reigns. This, combined with the media grabbing stunts the WWE have had Strowman pulling off over the past few weeks, means this year’s Payback is one of the most anticipated post-Mania Pay Per Views of recent memory. […]

When Anthony Joshua first stepped into the ring at the age of eighteen, it can be assumed that nobody knew exactly what they were watching. When the tall, athletic Briton pulled on the gloves for the first time, surely even he never thought that in less than ten years, he would be a household name and about to take part in one of the highest grossing and well attended fights of all time. On Saturday, the former Olympic gold medallist will step into the ring at the sold-out Wembley arena, to defend his IBF World Heavyweight title and pursue the vacant IBO Championship and WBA Super Championship, to face what […]

the-2017-fa-cup-semi-finals-preview

There is little doubt that the oldest competition in world football, has become a little stale in recent years. The trend probably began in 1999, when a recent treble-winning Manchester United team withdrew from that year’s edition of the competition, to concentrate on the newly formed Club World Cup in São Paulo. Of course, this is not the only factor which contributed to the demise in popularity of the FA Cup. The glamour of European football, the importance of league standings, and the “resting” of players, all being cited as reasons for the irrelevance of the once revered trophy. However, this year’s competition has gone a long way in recapturing the […]

ricky-burns-v-julius-indongo

In many ways, Glasgow is the perfect city to host what Ricky Burns (45W -5L-1D) calls the biggest fight of his life. In a town with a tough exterior and, well let’s face it, a fairly rough interior, too, Ricky Burns will feel at home. And well, that might be because he pretty much is at home, growing up in Coatbridge, only fifteen kilometres from Glasgow’s city centre. In boxing terms, Burns is the only show in town in Scotland. No matter what is said about the old city and its inhabitants, they certainly know how to get behind one of their own. One thing Julius Indongo can definitely expect, […]
