NIB opens this week by wondering if Mary-Lou is still in the Dáil? What craic! Staging a sit in (if you didn’t see it, where were you?) so everyone else could have a long weekend, good girl Mary Lou! It’s not the first time she’s got stuck somewhere though, on a press outing with her Dear Leader Gerry she previously got stuck on a fence. Then there was the “swing incident”, the Henry Street Penneys Protest and the reports this time last year she’d positioned herself on a seat in an industrial estate in Swords, although strangely Sinn Fein deny that one. Most recent reports in the popular press have hinted Martin O’Neill is eyeing Mary-Lou for Ireland’s upcoming match, that’s if she’ll leave Leinster House. Continue reading

Premier League: Costa Powers Chelsea Past Everton As City Slip Up

English Premier League

An eventful last weekend before the transfer deadline as Premier League champions stumble at Stoke, Newcastle and Crystal Palace play out a thriller and hapless Manchester United only manage a point at Turf Moor.

The Premier League finished its third week with only Chelsea and Swansea holding 100% records at this early stage. Swansea stormed to a 3-0 win over West Brom with Nathan Dyer scoring one either side of Wayne Routledge’s impressive volley at the Liberty Stadium. The win gives Garry Monk the perfect start to the season. Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United career continues without a win, as a rather uneventful goalless draw was played out against Burnley. Record signing Angel Di Maria made his United debut, but his introduction wasn’t enough to spark the lacklustre side back to life. The reigning league champions Man City were blue in more than name as well, with a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Stoke. Ex-United striker Mame Biram Diouf scored the only goal in a surprising victory for Mark Hughes’ Potters. Charlie Austin found the net as QPR recorded their first win of the campaign beating Sunderland in the only other 1-0 over the weekend. Continue reading

Redknapp Plots Great Escape After QPR Steal Three Points

hrThe miracle is still on. QPR have picked up a precious away win at relegation rivals Southampton, to move four points away from safety. Harry Redknapp has done some questionable things since taking over from Mark Hughes at the end of November. They have still had some very poor results, especially in recent weeks. But he is keeping QPR hanging on in there. Continue reading

Clark V Carroll The Key Battle In Our Accumulator

ccInternational matches took centre stage on Wednesday night and some notable results were recorded. Both Ireland and England may have registered wins but the two teams will draw very different conclusions from the results. Whereas the two goal win against Poland left Giovanni Trapattoni with a deepening conundrum about his starting eleven for the remainder of the World Cup Qualifiers, the English media would have you believe that Roy Hodgson has little on his managerial agenda other than to sit back, relax and bide his time away until his team are crowned champions in Brazil in 18 months time. These matches could also have implications for our pockets, and regarding our 14/1 accumulator, it is important to be wary of players who could be affected by fatigue or minor niggles picked up during the course of these matches.
