    Youth coaching: "You're doing it WROOONG!" says.... ... a certain PROCCER in the Orish Toyimz this weekend. Seems to be the most read article in sport on the Irish Times site too this weekend. He's obviously approaching this from a soccer angle, but the points apply across team sports. Good...

    Kindle Fire v Some other tablet

    Howdy. Been tempted to get a bog standard Kindle reader for some time but have been thinking it just makes more sense to go for a Kindle Fire. Sure, you lose the benefit with the basic reader of being able to make it out well in sunlight but just seems to make sense. However, as I'd be going...

    The European domestic politics thread

    Spanish election is coming up at the weekend, but I figured a thread on that and that alone would probably bomb, so how about a thread on the domestic politics of countries over on the mainland? Whilst on the campaign trail 20 minutes up the road from here last night, Spanish prime minister...

    streaming RTE for the game tonight outside Ireland?

    if anyone has any good links I'd be grateful. Obviously is geoblocked, and Sky, while possible, is utter shite for these occasions. I use a VPN for most things (US/IRL netflix, etc) called Hola, but it's failed me badly on the last few Ireland games. Apparently it doesn't fool the RTE...

    Budapest/Vienna/Prague- two days each… advice?

    Hi, I'm looking for some advice and what to see and do and where to eat in these three cities. We'll be spending two days and nights in each, with the exception of Budapest where we arrive late at night. I've only been to Budapest once back in 1999 where I had a local guiding us and my memory's...

    Best press conference EVER???

    Brilliant! Most surreal press conference I've ever seen, never seeing a manager being told what he can and can't say by his press officer like this before! Ex-Porto boss Vitor Pereira at Al Ahly Apologies if posted before, only got linked to it today. WZWjdbLnE_Y

    Anyone ever done one of these? Is there anything in particular one would need to be aware of, i.e. given the nature with it not being actual face-to-face? Appreciated!

    Capitol cinema to be turned into food hub? Sounds like a fine idea, but what are the odds on this actuality happening? I'd be surprised if Simon Coveney came up with this one all by himself?
