He is. (I don't like the UFC). Go abroad and meet someone under 30 and ask them about Ireland, they'll likely only now one Irish man and it's not Shane Long.
 

Got this in a bar in Amsterdam last October was wearing an Irish rugby jersey and Turkish lads started shouting I love Conor McGregor enthusiastically in our direction. 😂

It is a fact I’m no fan of him but for a year or two he was one of the most box office sports stars on the planet.

To the outside world, particularly fight fans, mcgregor is iconic. 
You also can't blame them for thinking that he is the pride of Ireland when you see the type of support that he brings to his fights.

Subbed at half time. Watched the first half. Apollon are League leaders in fairness and dominated possession, so that pretty much rendered Jack to chasing shadows. He showed some nice touches, but watching Apoel, similar to Ireland they look like a team who have just adopted a new passing style of play. An awkwardness about their play especially when they're playing out from the back, giving the ball away a lot and the old legacy of the ball lumped out of defence when under pressure.

The front three for Apoel also seem to have Zero movement. more than once Jack was in a position to play a incisive pass and the front men seem to just stand there. 

Definitely nothing to write home about with Byrne's performance, will be interesting to see how the team progresses few weeks down the road.

Just wondering where do you watch the games in Cyprus . 
Hopefully it works out well for Jack . I’ve been to a few Cypriot league games years ago and I enjoyed it

Near impossible to find streams unless you're on betting app, which I'm not. Watched it today through a service called mycujoo. Similar to the watch LOI. 

€5 quid a game or more for season ticket. Gave it whirl as Byrne was starting. Will probably give it a few games and check in again (assuming that Byrne's/Apoel's form improves.) Downside is Cypriot commentary but deadly stream otherwise.

Cheers for that Banjaxed. Thanks. I might do that on Jack’s next start.

Not in the squad today for their game. Did he pick up a knock at the weekend or just dropped for a poor performance?
Actually scratch that. It’s a rescheduled game so January signings not allowed to play

Was reading a Man City forum the other day and there were a few comments on Byrne. They were saying it was a real shame about his move to Cyprus and McCarthy being sacked shortly after he arrived, also that he made a few wrong moves in his career namely going to Blackburn
Someone said he probably had a similar level of natural ability to the like or Kalvin Phillips or James Ward Prowse but his career choices just weren’t as good

Interesting to hear that. Byrne was scoring hattricks in the uefa youth league for city and viera loved him. He was very promising in the dutch league but his moves in the championship did work out and either did Kilmarnock. 

Phillips and Ward Prowse have a physicality and engine which maybe puts them above Byrne for english clubs.

by career choice or attitude I’d say. f**ked out of Blackburn, f**ked out of Wigan, f**ked out of Kilmarnock.
