    Sonny Liston died on this day in 1970 aged 38.I’ve watched old fights over the last few days and am by no means an expert.There was some serious hard men in that era.

    Match fixing

    Bit of a problem with match fixing in the League of Ireland recently.I understand it's to do with money being made on match results.The question is how can a team let goals in on purpose,surely it can't be easy to do this and make it look realistic.

    Shortage of Plasterers.

    In my opinion in Ireland anyway there will be a shortage of plasterers and indeed other trades over the next few years.There simply is'nt anyone coming through the ranks and when you live in a rural area it takes years to build a name up.It would be interesting to hear other opinions.
