He finds the strength to drag his tired body to the kitchen and as his frail, withered hand reaches over to the table, he suddenly feels the whack of a wooden spoon on his knuckles as his wife barks, "F*** off, they're for the funeral." Sometimes spending too much time with your family can be … detrimental. Carlsberg don't do coaches leaving their post on a high - but if they did. Our national coach has a heightened sense of humanities and his PR masterclass will ensure that he will leave these shores with applause ringing in his ears and his legacy intact. There are two issues to debate here - succession and continuance, which the communications people left deliberately ambiguous - because they didn't have answers either. Spending time with your family is such a catch-all that you never know where to start.

The objections to such a move are well rehearsed. It's said Kenny's lack of experience in England would make it hard for him to command player respect. But the players don't exactly seem to be brimming with belief in Martin O'Neill's vision of the game right now. They're hardly in a position to be getting snotty about someone else's qualifications. After all, Kenny has won games in European club competition, something few of our international footballers have done. Dundalk's European run two seasons ago remains a marvel of Irish sport. It wasn't just the wins over BATE Borisov and Maccabi Tel Aviv, it was the fact that Dundalk were competitive all the way through. Their four defeats in Europa League Group D were all by a single goal. Had the FAI not subjected them to an insane schedule Kenny's team could have reached the knock-out stages. Going so close with such limited resources showed the Dundalk manager's ability to excel on a bigger stage. So did his sole cross channel foray when … [Read more...] about Eamonn Sweeney: ‘Time for FAI to offer Kenny biggest job in Irish football’

He was 3 years old when his father, a boxer of considerable skill, gave him his first pair of gloves. Advertisement In some ways, DeLuca, 30, and Kielczweski, 29, were born to box, the love of the sport passed down to them like DNA, and that’s why they’re still at it. This despite mounting evidence that repeated blows to the head — the stock in trade of boxers — can cause life-altering damage.

It wasn't all doom and gloom in Welsh rugby last weekend even if three of the four regions came a cropper in the Guinness PRO14. Because across the border in the Gallagher Premiership there were some shafts of Welsh light the illuminated England's top flight as Warren Gatland begins to turn his attention to the autumn international series. We look at how his English-based players are shaping up in the Premiership. JAMIE ROBERTS (BATH) After a lukewarn opening two games for his new employers Bath, the medicine man was back to his barnstorming best against former paymasters Harlequins last Saturday. He went over for Bath's opening try and provided some badly-needed ballast to help No.8 Zach Mercer crash over for the first of his two touchdowns. The downside was a 'small' fracture of his cheekbone near the end of the game as Quins launched a spirited fightback that's set to sideline him for four-six weeks. "I thought Jamie was outstanding against Quins," said Bath coach Todd Blackadder. … [Read more...] about Here’s how well Dan Biggar and the rest are playing in England
