I've set up a facebook page that will be updated automatically with all goals as they go in. Click Like here: https://www.facebook.com/irishfootballstatisics?ref=hl
I did consider posting the bookings and red cards to facebook, as in the twitter feed, but that would just flood your newsfeed on matchday.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Junior for helping me test out the facebook page over the last few weeks
Waterford's Sean Maguire on trial at Peterborough: http://www1.skysports.com/football/n...Irish-teenager
Norwich are showing interest in Mark Bunn from Blackburn which would be great news for us as if he got first team football, particularly with Shay retiring. Rumours also circulating regarding Stephen Quinn joining either Blackpool or Charlton.

He's never represented us or intimated he has Irish roots or any desire to play for us, as far as I can tell.
First game of the Championship season: Cardiff v Huddersfield
Scannell starts for Huddersfield with Lee and Gerrard on the bench. Mason on the bench for Cardiff, no McPhail.
In relation to Mark Bunn, you got me wondering why I believed he was eligible for us. I actually picked it up on here,on this thread, from a few years ago! In regards to your comment Charlie, about Bunn not intimating that he has Irish roots, he wouldn't be the first who have suddenly found they can play for us!

Wow, the website was way busier back then...
Good memory by the way! Is he any good?
If you're paranoid, let me reassure you: everybody is not out to get you. It's only one guy and its not who you think.
I reckon he is a solid keeper from the occasions I have seen him, his biggest problem has been the fact he has been a bench warmer for a hell of a long time when not on loan. He could become Norwich's No.1 and as we really have a weakness now in that area, he could compete with Westwood who may be a bench warmer himself.
Great to see forde starting for wolves think he can be an excellent player for us. Doyle and ward also start. Hunt on bench
Burke on the bench for villa is a nice surprise quality player
Lineups starting to appear on the live blog after a few early opening day jitters - http://irish-abroad.appspot.com/Live
No need to refresh, just leave the page open and watch the action unfold
Just some comments from the weekend action. Good to see David Meyler get a run, hopefully he can force his way back into the team. Owen Garvan got a brace, maybe he will live up to his early promise ( probably not). Richard Keogh and Jeff Kendrick played for Derby in their draw while Sean Murray started for Watford and was replaced by Connor Smith.
Gavin Gunning bagged on for Dundee United. He's only 21, does he have much potential? I can't say I know a whole heap about him.
" I wish to God that someone would be able to block out the voices in my head for five minutes, the voices that scream, over and over again: "Why do they come to me to die?"
As much as I think Paul Green is over his head at international level, and I'm sure many on here do, I don't any of us would like to see him injured. The lad declared for Ireland - give him credit. And let's wish him a speedy recovery - I'm sure he has a wife and kids to support.
