ANOTHER WEEK, ANOTHER raft of opinions from computerland about Roy Keane’s travel plans 11 years ago and Joe Schmidt’s plans for this weekend.

So, before we get caught up in another week of top, top top sporting action it’s well worth reflecting on the week that was.

We caught up with former Manchester United assistant manager, Mike Phelan, in Dublin this week. When we reported that Fergie’s former right-hand man thought Ireland starlet Robbie Brady ‘can be anything we wants to be’. The uniquely-named YourAuldLady took Phelan literally.

Can he be a doctor?

We were at a GAA announcement at Croke Park in midweek in which Liam O’Neill mapped out his plans for a rounders revival. Plenty of you were pretty excited about playing the childhood game again. Including, Eimear Smith:

Yeah we did too- in front of the street lamps.  Our road was on an incline. There was one lefty on our road and everyone wanted her on the team- cos she’d belt it down the road and you’d be guaranteed to win!

Reader Andrew S was not impressed by the Aussies’ bar bill at Krystle. Not impressed at all.

So about ten lads in a VIP area, chatting up women and acting the b*llox in a free night club only go through 1.5k. That’s €150 each and they got banned. The J3′s in Naas go through that each at a team meeting in the club on a Thursday.

Our rugby columnist David Wallace is using his punditry position to launch a Homeland-type conspiracy, according to Eoin Kennedy

Sly man Wally wants O’Brien at 8 so the 7 position is open. And out of retirement he comes. Absolute Legend!

One Facebook fan wasn’t buying the story of The Rock meeting Andre The Giants many Wrestlemanias ago.
