    Three sporting dying wishes

    If before you die you could be granted 3 sporting wishes you could see come true in your lifetime, what would they be ? Mine would be:

    (a) Ireland win the World Cup in Germany with Glenn Whelan, in the squad because Roy Keane refused to travel because there were no prawn sandwiches available on the plane, scoring the winner in injury time against England.

    (b) Shamrock Rovers get a new stadium of their own and attract crowds of 20k+.

    (c) Waterford win the all Ireland hurling final (land of my foremothers) and go on a celebratory trip to Sheffield where Wednesday have just won the Premiership (neatly getting in 2 wishes there).

    1) Longford to win the league, winning the final match relegating cork, just as they start a song about us lacking ambition

    2) FC United to takeover MUFC as the whole glazer family is wiped out in a prolonged and painful way

    3) The majority of the population realise they're mugs for spending so much on foreign football and rediscover our own league in their thousands.

    He said wishes not dreams

    1. City to make CL Group Stages & qualify to next stage.
    2. RTE show Celtic v Ukbechistani team in CL instead of Cork City v Real Madrid, mass protests outside Montrose which leads to public enquiry & government resigns.
    3. 20,000 people attend a eL game.

    1/ I would whole heartedly endorse this one!
    2/ As a follow-up... Full Houses at all EL grounds.
    3/ This one is the most likely to be achieved sadly of the three.

    1/ I've seen the future and this will happen in 3005.
    2/ When all the Irish Born Children of African parents grow up we will finally have Irish people who can actually sprint and this will happen
    3/... sooner than you think

    1. Irish Champions Shelbourne to beat English champions Sheffield Wednesday in the CL final, with Weso and Glenn Whelan then joining forces in Ireland's world cup winning team (all going to happen in 2010 - trust me!)

    2. An Irish basketball team made up entirely of players who came through the Irish schools system to play in the Olympics.

    3. Dublin to win an All-Ireland football and hurling double.

    1. Sligo Rovers to get back playing European football again.

    2. An Irish team to make it to the group stages of the Champions League.

    3. Government investment and better marketing in the Eircom League and more people getting out to support their local team instead of sitting on their arses watching Sky Sports!
    The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.

    1)Longford to win the all-ireland league which attracts crowds of minimum 20,000 every game.
    2)The fai to get there act together and develope proper facilities to allow us to develope young players which leads to no players crossing the water to england.This to pay off resulting in us constantly contending for the world/euro cup.
    3)For barstoolers to realise how stupid they have been and begin to support their own league
    If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.
