That’s better!

Much much better from Ireland tonight who finally get their first point of the campaign against the Czech Republic [note for Bill O'Herlihy, it's not Czechoslovakia!]. It was a good performance and in some ways we were unlucky not to take all three points from the game. The sad thing is that it took Saturday’s [...]

Shame in Nicosia

My second attempt at putting my thoughts into words after tonights depressing game. I had a really long post written about it, about the players and about Stan but i’ve cooled down now and rewritten it. Tonight was embarrassing. The performance was nothing short of shameful. It’s our most embarrassing defeat in decades, the draw [...]

Mayo’s mental breakdown

Anyone make the unfortunate decision to watch yesterday’s All-Ireland Football Final? What an awful awful game, one of the worst I have seen in ages. What the heck happened to Mayo? Did all the pressure and expectation become too much and cause a mental breakdown? They weren’t in it at all yesterday, they never even [...]

Ladies weight lifting

Just watching ladies weight lifting, it’s my favourite women’s sport. It’s the only opportunity I get to shout “lovely snatch” at a woman without risking a slap in the puss. I wouldn’t like to get a slap off one of these women … except maybe her. Sorry.

Stan da man

Great result in Lansdowne last night. Who could have predicted that? Three-nil against the Swedes. Well done Stan and lads. I was totally against Stan getting the managers job, I still don’t think he’s the right man for the job but of course he’s manager now and no matter what we have to get behind [...]

Winter Olympics: Swedes take final gold

Torino 2006 logoThe old enemey does it again, Sweden takes gold in ice-hockey. It was a fantastic tournament for Finland but in the end they just couldn’t produce the goods in the final. Well done to Sweden on their deserved win … feckers.


Winter Olympics: Suomi Abú

The Finnish men’s ice hockey team did the stuff once again last night by knocking four past Russia to advance to the final. It was expected to be a tough match but Russia were somewhat disappointing and couldn’t find a way past the Finnish defence especially goalkeeper Antero Niittymäki who has been playing a stormer [...]

Winter Olympics Commentary: Funny sports

I’ve just discovered a competition I didn’t know existed … short track relay speed skating. What a totally hilarious sport. Picture it, speed skaters flying around the outside of a rink closely tracked by a whole bunch of skaters flying around the inside of the rink in a semi-organised mess. After a couple of laps [...]

Winter Olympics: Flying Finns march on

Great news for all you Finnish ice-hockey fans in the Irish blogoshpere … erm, just me I guess … Finland have booked their place in the semi-finals after beating USA 4-3 in this evening’s match. The Finns are unbeaten in the competition so far having won all five preliminary round ties including a shut out [...]

Glorifying terrorism

As reported this week the UK are considering bringing in legislation to ban glorifying terrorists which could mean paramilitary songs and murals being outlawed. However the laws are supposed to be so vague that they will need to be tested in court before its full powers are delineated. The question I have relates to the [...]
