Peter Fitzpatrick - Apr 13, 2022

Manchester City and Liverpool played out their second 2-2 thriller of the Premier League campaign on Sunday in the first instalment of a potential three-part season finale to “English football’s greatest ever rivalry”.

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.

Football, and the controversies involved, such as transfers, for the foreseeable will take a back seat but last weekend showed it can act as somewhat of an escape from the grim reality of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Liverpool defeated Chelsea on penalties to win the League Cup after the best 0-0 draw in recent memory. […]
