This is the inaugural Foot.ie Advert / Short Film Competition and below are the entries to it. The inception of it was a bit rough and ready, with the guidelines and rules being conceived within a very short time frame. It was a good bench mark though and it should give people a good idea of what to expect every November and even give them a whole season to gather footage and content for an entry into the 2012 Competition.
So, enjoy the clips and watch this space !!!

It's a brand spanking New Year and it promises to be jam-packed with football all the right way through. The 2011 League of Ireland Season is not far off now and on the 26th March 2011 Ireland are also due to play Macedonia in the Aviva in a European Championship Qualifying Fixture. Here on www.foot.ie we are going to take part in the build up to this season too and that’s why we are running an 'Advert Making' competition that's open to foot.ie members to enter, to get the ball moving as it were.
There a film a few years back "How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days",your typically flaky chick flick. However it seems as if City are determined to star in their own sequel, how to lose the League in ten games. For me, last night was the final nail in the coffin of the hopes for automatic promotion as it showed that City don't have the mental strength or the confidence to get over the line.
It was set up perfectly for them to push on and pile the pressure on the rivals. A confidence
“It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.”

Strange things, leads. Like an investment banker checking his bank balance, you can never be too far in front. And when things go the other way, any lead at all will inevitably

The nub of the issue is that clubs in Ireland are not solely in competition with leagues or clubs across the water. Nor are they solely in competition with the GAA and IRFU. Like it or not, football has become another part of the entertainment industry, and football fans, whether we like it or not, are consumers. But too many consumers want the best comfort, price and entertainment for the least possible effort.

3) Limerick went to media to complain
3) League said it was because of a) other games b) they were looking to bring Barca over themselves and c) the mysterious "3rd party agreement"
4) Limerick complained some more. Media cited
Monaghan United will go into this game against Shelbourne having received a great boost to their confidence with a win over Premier Division Champions Bohemians on Tuesday evening last in the 2nd. Round of the EA Sports Cup, it will not be just the win which was achieved the hard way having gone behind in extra time and then winning the game on penalties but it will be the manner in which they played throughout all of that game especially in extra time. Hopefully all players will have recovered
It will be a case of back to the future tonight at Gortakeegan when Monaghan United welcome Airtricity League First Division leaders Derry City.
This year marks 25 years since both sides made their League of Ireland bows. Indeed, Monaghan’s first ever home senior soccer match came against Derry City in Belgium Park in the League Cup in September 1985 (coincidentally the year in which the aforementioned film is set) resulting in a 2-0 Mons win in front of a bumper crowd. So
