    Ireland must find cutting edge after barren run continues

    Ireland has managed to avoid relegation from Nations League B with a stalemate against Bulgaria, but the lack of goals has become more and more of an issue for The Boys in Green.

    The rising stars hoping to play their way into Kenny’s plans

    Given that his previous post was manager of the Under-21 side, Stephen Kenny was expected to bring some youthful zest into the senior Ireland setup.

    While the Ireland team is not flush with players at the top tier of English football anymore, it’s not fair to say that we don’t have many excellent players at good clubs.

    It’s the hope that kills you, as the famous saying goes. And Ireland fans will be more familiar with that motto then most national team fans, but we should change to ‘it’s the luck that kills you’. Due to the very strange Uefa Nations League set up, we can finish bottom of a three man […] More

    Kenny’s reign starts with low key games in Nations League

    So here we are, under the new dawning of Irish football with King Kenny riding to the rescue. Fairy tales and Ireland soccer don’t really fit and our first two games under Kenny, were a bit more a Brothers Grimm then a Cinderella outcome. In many respects, just like when Mick McCarthy started there was […] More
