Footballers are above the law

By  Myles na Gopaleen If a group of 15 or sixteen trainee accountants or solicitors (two moderately well paid, privilaged subsets) acted the way many professional football teams did, they'd be jailed. Footballers live in a consequence-free environment. Could you imagine...

Berbatov does himself no favours

By  Rowley Birkin QC Was at the United game yesterday. I like Berbatov. Always have (always will clarence). His main problem is that the good things he does are overlooked when he takes about five minutes to get back on his...

Giggs the wrong choice – Hoosay

I think that considering they have a team award, and a lifetime achievement award that Giggs was the wrong choice.No doubt about it, Giggs is a quality player, and has been for more than a decade and a half,...

Ireland must play with more belief

By  Frank the Tank Having watched all the games that have taken place, I would suggest with more belief we would have won a lot more games. 1 nil up away to Bulgaria, draw 1-1 1 nil up home to Bulgaria, draw...

Hey Shay Given!!! – orieldude

Mark Hughes becomes more odious by the week it seems. What do people think? Did Carvalho foul for the match winning free? One angle makes it look bad alright. Regardless of location the contrast in tactics and performance of City and...

Dunphy Spoofwatch by SoggyBiscan

Liverpool’s silver lining by Soggy Biscan

Freed from the shackles of the monster that has become the Champions League with its predictability, obsessions with finances and pandering to the big teams, the Europa league is threatening to become the breath of fresh air that European...

Hughes just a cog – Joe Pineapples

Well don't forget, it was Gary Cook who said that "Richard Dunne doesn't roll off the tongue in Beijing"... Hughes was most likely as much of a cog in the machinery of this bullshit carpet ride they're all on...

USA a wildcard shout for the World Cup

By  Myles na Gopaleen Spain Brazil and England are tier one (Possible Winners). Spain - Best squad in the world at the minute. Monkey off the back. Best midfield possibly ever at international football. World's number one keeper. Brazil - Brazil with...

Robbie Keane To Celtic – Myles na Gopaleen

I think it could be a good move from an Ireland Perspective. He'd score dozens of goals and would be coming in to Ireland squad on hotter streaks than he would in the EPL. At the end of the day...

Limited Ireland just set up to contain

By  frank the hammer When you play with two holding midfielders whose sole function is to stop the other team playing, they serve no purpose at all when you are behind. Trap really needs to pick the best players he...

Are We witnessing the decline of Alex Ferguson’s managerial tenure

By  Myles na Gopaleen I think this time it is real, it has been slower, more pervasive and is going on over 18 months now. The argument can be made that there was no money to bring in a Ronaldo...
