“While most football fans from Ireland adopt an illustrious English side to support, their own national league serves as little more than a sideshow. Growing up in Ireland I was never given the choice, so to speak, to support an Irish club as my ‘first team’. Like most Irish football fans, I support Liverpool. Strong cultural and historical links between Liverpool and Ireland make the connection, alongside the fact Liverpool were immensely successful for over 30 years straight, quite easy.” backpagefootball
New league season, same old problems?
