World Cup Play-Off: Ireland vs. Denmark – Ireland’s Key Players

By Evan Coughlan November 10, 2017 (No)
In November 2015, Jonathan Walters wrote himself into Irish footballing folklore after scoring two goals in the Euro 2016 play-off against Bosnia to send the Irish team to France. We placed that moment pretty highly on our list of Ireland’s most memorable play-offs! Now in November 2017 Ireland find themselves in a play-off yet again, this time against Denmark, and you know what, we fancy our chances! Martin O’Neill has announced the squad that will try and take Ireland to its first World Cup since Korea/Japan in 2002, but who from O’Neill’s squad will make the difference. Well, we here at The Sharpe think these three men will be key […]

The Republic of Ireland’s Most Memorable Play-Offs

By Evan Coughlan November 7, 2017 (No)
Well, somehow we’ve done it again. After the disappointment of Ireland’s World Cup qualifying matches in September, it looked very unlikely that the boys in green would be in the mix for a World Cup play-off come November. Lo and behold, after Scotland did us a favour by beating Slovakia and then drawing with Slovenia, we were now in with a chance of getting a play-off spot. Now, all we had to do was beat Wales in Cardiff and our play-off spot was secure; no small feat, mind you. After a beautiful run by Jeff Hendrick and the sweetest of strikes from Jimmy McClean, we overcame the Bale’s boys and […]

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 […]

How Would An All Irish Team Do In The Premiership – Part 1

By Ryan Corry July 20, 2017 (No)
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 […]
