The Inside Forward - Aye Aye Captain  from The Inside Forward 
by
By Inside Forward on Tue, Nov 10 2015

I still remember the phone call vividly. My initial reaction was confusion as I hadn’t really caught what the manager had asked me and it was getting a bit late in the conversation to ask him to repeat himself without appearing rude. It was only afterwards that I realised all those barnstorming runs up the pitch, last ditch tackles and inspirational, lung busting performances had finally come to fruition, I had been asked to captain the side for the forthcoming season.

Rural Electrification - The Forgotten Story of Ballyfassaugh Cromlechs  from Turlough Kelly 
by
By Turlough Kelly on Wed, Oct 28 2015

At first glance, the League of Ireland seems a prime target for the hipster menace; a niche interest, kept alive by a handful of believers, often based in quaint, run-down urban locales. To date, however, the grey ooze of hipsterdom has yet to seep through the doors of the venerable institution. In fact, the league’s demographic has remained relatively stable, if lamentably male, even in times of rapid social flux - although the players themselves seem to get posher by the year. Post-match interviews often reveal softened vowels and lisped t's, a far cry from the days when the average League of Ireland star was a plumber's apprentice with a voice like a sentient lump of black pudding.

The Quiet Oblivion of Italia '90  from Turlough Kelly 
by
By Turlough Kelly on Sun, Sep 20 2015

It was an odd summer in many ways, not least numerically. With no World Cup or European Championships to fill the long, drizzly evenings, football's vacant throne passed to the usual procession of pretenders. From the grunting automatons of Centre Court, to the golf majors' pastel parade of sullen millionaires, each has flared and withered under the summer spotlight.

Apocalypse Always: The many deaths of the League of Ireland  from Turlough Kelly 
by
By Turlough Kelly on Wed, May 20 2015

If the League of Ireland were a doomsday cult, it would long ago have been reduced to a handful of fanatical adherents huddled together in a sealed cave and casting covetous glances at the Kool-Aid.

Roll it there, Sepp: Football vs. Robocop  from Turlough Kelly 
by
By Turlough Kelly on Sat, Mar 28 2015

The forlorn figure of the modern umpire has been a melancholy feature of the ongoing Cricket World Cup. Once a marble monolith of reason – King Solomon in a floppy hat – today's umpire is an apologetic, anachronistic half-presence amid the sugar-surge of powerplays and flashing bails.

A League 2015/16 - Week 2 Review  from A-League Review 
by
By Emmet Maloney on Thu, Oct 22 2015

The honour of opening the entertainment this week fell to Adelaide United when they played host to Western Sydney Wanderers at Coopers Stadium in front of just over nine thousand fans, which must be a disappointment after playing in front of over nineteen thousand fans the previous week.

A League 2015/16 - Week 1 Review  from A-League Review 
by
By Emmet Maloney on Thu, Oct 15 2015

The A League is back for its eleventh season and in a piece of marketing genius the powers that be lined up a huge clash to start with, well at least they might have done if they had thought about it, instead we got Western Sydney Wanderers v Brisbane Roar at Pirtek Stadium. Not that my sneering would put off the excellent support that Wanderers enjoy at home and over fourteen thousand diehards turned out to welcome the dawn of the new season.
