Beacom on Monday: Our man's unbeatable verdict on the weekend's football action
Finally it looks like Stephen Ireland is getting his career back on track after a difficult few years. The Corkman (27), hasn't helped himself at times, but scored a beauty and provided an assist for Oussama Assaidi's stunning winner against Chelsea in Stoke's shock 3-2 victory. New Republic boss Martin O'Neill might be in touch to offer Ireland an international return. He hasn't played at that level since 2007!
