Tammy Abraham
Nicolas Mandolini - May 27, 2022

Tammy Abraham has been Roma‘s standout player this season, netting 27 goals in all competitions. He showed up in the biggest moment for the club, and his importance to the team goes further than his goal contributions. His linkup play with captain Lorenzo Pellegrini has been second to none at times. However, Roma will still […]

Republic of Ireland
Peter Fitzpatrick - Mar 23, 2022

The Republic of Ireland will be looking to continue their recent upturn in fortunes against Belgium and Lithuania this week but just one look at the squad named by Stephen Kenny and the sheer lack of goals in the current Irish ranks is glaringly obvious.

Manchester United
Peter Fitzpatrick - Mar 9, 2022

Another weekend, another damning indictment of modern-day Manchester United. It was less so the scoreline, a 4-1 Manchester derby defeat, but more so the manner in which they lost. The players simply packed it in. The second half stats said it all; 14-0 shots, 79-21 per cent possession. At one point, Manchester City had a […]
