Happy new year to our Ethiopian friends. We would wish them a Happy 2013 were it not for the fact that that is still seven years away. For it is still only 2006 over there. Here's a few things Ethiopians (those that is who have an intimate knowledge of world, and particularly Irish, sport) still think...
What Ireland need is a wily, big name foreign coach
After Brian Kerr's failure to take Ireland to the World Cup in Germany what Ireland needs is a marquee name to get the Irish soccer public energised behind the national team
Andy Reid could be a key man in years to come
Shown some great touches in qualification for 2006
Spain are the great underachievers of World Football
Will they ever get it together? The Catalans don't sing the words to the national anthem don't you know?
Arsene Wenger has many trophy-laden years ahead of him
Only Mourinho can stand in his way. Fergie's days of winning trophies are behind him
Tiger Woods will have taken Jack Nicklaus's record in about 4 years, partially because his private life is a model of probity and decorum
They don't know what to expect from the Galway hurlers (that ones the same)
The time is ripe to get on the property ladder in Bulgaria...
