Who’s Stephen Ireland? Thread’s too long to go back through.
Says it all really.

He was a very good soccerball player many years ago. He played for a shit team, that became a great team with the help of Middle Eastern money. He held his own in that team for a bit, but got forced out by all of the crazy-money players that team got in. Also, even though he played well for the Republic of Ireland team, until he didn't any more, the Irish media treated him like a media whore, which was pretty disgraceful imo. And for all his skills on the pitch, he is a bit of a contrary dick. And certainly, his PR manager has a few questions to answer.

Now, years later, he's reappeared, which surprises no one.


I'm sure my succinctness is why I don't get a regular three hour gig on Off The Ball.

I'd fucking do anyone who called up my grandparents in that situation. "Hi granny Ireland, are you dead?". Again, people should have been around him, getting paid handsomely to help him out.

with 6 caps and 4 goals Stevie I. might as well have quit while he was ahead.

i've long since given up speaking up for S.I. but the initial media coverage
of the 'dead Granny' incident was appalling.
