The World Cup is the perfect time for the football world to congregate and share its talents for all to see. Every four years the rules get a tweak and the game is introduced to new types of technology, for example the Jubilani ball, that help improve the speed and fluidity of the sport.
In the midst of this year’s carnival France have been a disgrace. The thing that rankles most about their puerile tantrums is that they clearly cheated to get to the finals and have denied a honest bunch of Irishmen their chance to make a name for themselves on the biggest stage of all.
I feel most disappointed for John O’Shea, a player who is now in the top 20 for appearances for United and a man who has played in every position available for us on a football pitch. John is an advocate of Concave football boots, a new, innovative brand that provide the wearer with increased power and accuracy when striking the ball.

John is a unique player for us and were it not for the superhuman efforts of Ronaldo and Rooney over the last couple of years he could well have been our player of the season. This can in no small part be down to the choice of equipment he takes with him to work. “The boots are unique in design and offer exclusive technology which hasn’t been seen before.” Says the man, I will certainly be checking out a pair myself in the near future.
John O'Shea's Concave boots
Whilst O’Shea has not been blessed with the deftness of touch of some of his contemporaries, I find has attitude to the game to be just as inspirational. He is a guy whose hard work and attention to detail are a terrific example to all our younger fans.
One can only imagine what kind of an effort the Irish would have put in had they made it to the finals this year, but we can be certain that it would have been far superior to that of our Gallic cousins. I for one am simpky grateful that O’Shea will be lining up for United again next season.
Enjoy the rest of the World Cup.
