Earn & Keep a Soccer Scholarship to the USA

After hearing about the decision to stop running the Association Football course at Colaiste Ide I decided the work done by Jim Conroy and Danny Crowley needed to be highlighted. Jim wrote an excellent prologue that sets the book up nicely. I also include ways to prepare yourself physically for the challenge ahead and also how to approach college in the US. The book is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editons. Continue reading “Earn & Keep a Soccer Scholarship to the USA”

What’s your Favorite Retro Football Jersey?

What are some of the best retro football jerseys you remember? I recently came across an old jersey I wore playing U-16 football in Ireland (pictured below). That got me thinking back to some of my favorite football jerseys that were around back in the eighties, nineties and early 2000’s. My personal favorites include Liverpool’s home and away jerseys from 1988-1990, Shelbourne’s old home jersey and the Euro “88 Holland jersey are some standouts. Another standout in my opinion was the Arsenal jersey from 1992. Some other notables are pictured below. Continue reading “What’s your Favorite Retro Football Jersey?”

The game is at 12.30pm EST and a live stream can be found here.

Colaiste Ide is today known as one of the best resources for American college coaches looking to recruit players to play in the college setting. Jim Conroy and Danny Crowley have to turn people away due to the courses popularity in Ireland. The groundwork was put in by Jim, originally running the course on his own back in the early days of the program. After doing my Leaving Certificate back in  1999 I had no clue what I wanted to do. My points on the leaving had me half way to being a doctor. So close!  After seeing a special on Irish television highlighting the purpose of the course my mind was made up.

Liverpool: 1st Half v 2nd Half

Rodgers rejects fitness issue

By Jonathan Carroll

Liverpool’s second half performances have come under much scrutiny lately. Even though the reds sit in second spot in the Premier League on goal difference behind Arsenal, the second forty-five minutes of each game have been anything but impressive. Brendan Rodgers’ men have played nine games so far this season.  Seven in the league and two in the Carling Cup. With the manager recently rejecting that a lack of fitness has caused the second half slump, a deeper look is needed. As a follow-up to my previous article. “Is Fitness an Issue for Liverpool FC?” I will attempt to breakdown the season so far. Seven games have been played in the league and two in the Carling Cup. The results so far this season are as follows: Continue reading “Liverpool: 1st Half v 2nd Half”
