    Anyone who can put their hand on heart and say they can stand over criticism of Stephen Kenny is, quite frankly, talking shite

    Let’s put our foot on the ball here. It’s October 7, 2006, and Steve Staunton’s head is bowed, almost like he is trying to avoid the flashing cameras and high-pitched vitriol. He is trying to avoid the flashing cameras and high-pitched vitriol. He wishes the Nicosia turf would suck him up and bury him where […] More

    Kenny’s squad choices

    Not seeing the Republic of Ireland team in the world cup in 2018 hurt, and even though it’s fair for all teams to take part, it is a bitter pill to swallow when you see teams such as Panama, Iran and Costa Rica, competing when Ireland are on a par or better than them. And […] More

    Will McGeady be called up by Kenny?

    The last time Aiden McGeady played for Ireland was in the World Cup play offs, the horrible 5-1 reverse to Denmark, back in November 2017. McGeady came on as 2nd half sub but the game was up by then. It should have been Martin O’Neill’s final game in charge too but that’s another story. Fast […] More

    Caoimhín Kelleher’s rise to Liverpool’s number 2

    Irish football has faced a crisis off the pitch the past two years and on the pitch it has been a real struggle too. A poor end to the Martin O’Neill reign which should have ended after the 5-1 play off loss to Denmark, was followed by the damp squib of a return by Mick […] More
