  • The scoreline in a Donegal club game has GAA fans questioning the future of football

    The end is officially nigh. Glenswilly played St. Eunan's in a Donegal county football league game today and the match ended on a scoreline of 03-02. Yep, three points to two. Pity the supporters who gave up a Sunday afternoon to watch a gaelic football game and saw a grand total of five points scored in the whole game. Local journalist Alan Foley was at the game and put the scoreline down to poor aim rather than the dreaded blanket defence - between the two teams there were 27 wides in the game. Winners Glenswilly notched all three of their points in the first half and there was only one point scored in the second half - a free for St. Eunan's.

  • Man Utd's Chinese trip is descending into chaos

    Manchester United’s pre-season trip to China is ending chaotically, with organisation as bad as the weather meaning Jose Mourinho just wants to get his players home in one piece. Following a friendly against Borussia Dortmund during a short and relatively straightforward stay in Shanghai, United have come to Beijing to take on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in what looked set to be a mouth-watering friendly. Instead, preparations for Monday’s match have been beset with problems from United’s end, given the flight issues en route to the Chinese capital and organisational problems upon arrival. More rain is forecast overnight, though, and even if it does go ahead player safety remains a concern, with the pitch a worry for Guardiola and United counterpart Mourinho.

  • Clinton camp blames pro-Trump Russians for cyberattack

    Could this US presidential election get any more bizarre? Internal Democratic Party emails, leaked on Friday clearly intended to sow dissent within the party, show how officials tried to tip the scales in favour of Hillary Clinton during the primary. The Clinton camp has blamed the leak on “Russian state actors” for passing the information to hackers in an effort to help Republican Donald Trump win the election because he has pro-Russian policies and is an admirer of Vladimir Putin. Another reason for the Russian help, according to her campaign team, is because his campaign has removed language in the party’s policy platform relating to Ukraine that would have upset Russia and because Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, worked as a lobbyist for the Russian-backed former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovich.
