Roll up roll up as it's time for us to reveal the three most popular posts in Balls' five year history. Over the last few days, we've brought you no.10-4 and in case you were worried by Roy Keane and Conor McGregor's absence, don't worry, they're yet to come.

Of course, don't forget to check out our new look website when it launches next Monday but until then, hopefully these can keep you entertained.

3. Roy Keane pulls no punches with Steven Gerrard

Did you really think we could get through the top ten without Roy Keane popping up?

Of course not. Keano will need to take a long hard look at himself however, as he's only made it to no.3 in our all time list for this superbly blunt Vine. Rewind 12 months to the night of the Champions League final and England still lived in hope of doing well at the World Cup. Keane decided to tell their captain Steven Gerrard exactly how he thought they were going to get on...

2. Conor McGregor gives Dana White a geography lesson


And finally we come to the one man possibly more divisive than Roy Keane; the star of hour, Conor McGregor. Whether people love him or hate him aside, his scolding of Dana White earlier this year certainly seemed to grab people's attention.

Over the five years of Balls, we've learned that if there's one thing Irish people hate more than anything it's being told we're part of Britain.

1. Literally any post about British people reacting to GAA

In truth, if I had decided to take the British Twitter reactions on their individual merits, rather than group them together, then pretty much the entire top ten would have been made up of them.

There was the reaction to both the finals, the reaction to the Donegal/Armagh brawl, the reaction to pretty much everything. However, it was the original reaction to Sky Sports' first ever hurling match - between Kilkenny and Offaly - which has held firm as the most viewed post in Balls history.


Here is just a snippet of what made it so popular:
