Returning to these pages six months after his comparison of Eamon Dunphy's Only a Game and Garry
Nelson's Left Foot in the Grave, Manchester United supporter Russell George wonders in his latest
post whether he'll ever make it home for the highlights without knowing the score. On 26th May
1999, Clive Tyldesley memorably said that Manchester United fans would, â€˜forever and a day' ask
each other where they watched the Champions League Final against Bayern Munich.

George brings us his thoughts on another study of the Big Red Machine. Tangential to the usual
scope of this site it may seem, but author Andy Mitten's prominence in the world of fans as writers

Dunphy's A Strange Kind of Glory, a definitive text for any scholar of Manchester United.
Immediately following the period covered by the irascible Irishman, United were to slip into the
second tier - here,
First of all, I want to say that own a huge bias. I come from Chorlton-on-Medlock, a part of
Manchester which is now nonexistent. The street I grew up on is now a part of the Royal Infirmary
parking lot. Although much of the Gorton, Brooke's Bar, Collyhurst, Denton, Ardwick, Ancoats and
Moss Side areas are long gone, back-to back terraced â€˜slums' destroyed for the sake of Socialist
urban renewal, many of us remember it well enough.
Much of Robbie Fowler's autobiography is boring. The story of this talented mischief-maker (such
as the infamous "snorting" the touchline incident) doesn't grab me. I normally love reading
anything football-related - tell-alls, player biographies, histories, theories, economic
manifestos, coaching manuals â€“ whatever.
Many of you will be aware of Eamon Dunphy, a former Millwall player and author of Roy Keane's
ghosted autobiography. The Irishman now works as a pundit on Irish TV channel RTE and The Guardian
reports that he's laid into the Sunderland manager, essentially calling him a hypocrite for his
lengthy press conferences where he [.
Eamon Dunphy got it right. The "outspoken" pundit for Irish state television (RTE) said on
Saturday night that "England won't score, they have no creative players...it'll go to penalties and
Italy will go through." It was a stroke of luck for Dunphy, who rather slurred his way through a
short interview on RTE Radio, as he "was preparing for the Spain v France game.
As an avid reader my entire life my mood toward material is constantly changing. Every couple of
months I am into something else. Sometimes it can be non-fiction that includes material on great
leaders, real life travel journals, serial killer profiles, organized crime; other times it is
fiction that includes Paulo Coehlo, Chuck Palahniuk, Kurt Vonnegut, and Truman Capote.
Watch the Thierry Henry handball video from the France versus Ireland game here. In the analysis
by Irish TV station RTE, the pundits dissect the controversial moment in the game and analyze
whether it should have been offside or not and whether the video of the Thierry Henry handball
shows if he cheated on purpose or not.
It was standing room only in the National Library last evening as the latest event in the
Library Late series took place. A talk entitled "Give Us Back Our Sport" commenced with
RTE's Tom McGurk acting as chief questioner, flanked by our best known sporting pundit Eamon Dunphy
and one of this nations greatest practitioners of sports journalism, David Walsh of the Sunday

Happy St. Patrick#8217;s Day everyone. I know it#8217;s not traditional to give gifts on March
18th, but I got you one anyway. Last year we paid tribute to classy Irish international Paul
McGrath. This year we bring you something not so classy. But possibly a lot more entertaining. The
collected rantings of legendary loudmouth Eamon Dunphy.
Former Republic of Ireland international, Eamon Dunphy, once said that a goalkeeper had to have
"the grace of a ballet dancer joined with the strength of an SAS squaddie, the dignity of an
ancient kind, and the nerve of a bomb disposal officer". The following goalkeepers may not have
journalists raving about them every week, [.

News flash: women don't have a monopoly on melodrama and sentimentality. Witness Lampard's
emergence as a national icon via his admirable performances for Chelsea while mourning his mother -
his eyes turn to the sky as the back of the net bulges and the crowd cheers. You can feel the whole
country choke on its tears.
