Armstong netting a winner with new website

Gerry Armstrong has hit the net again!

The Northern Ireland legend, who is best known for scoring one of the country’s most famous ever goals against Spain in the 1892 World Cup, is ready to show his talent to the planet once again — albeit in a different way.

Gerry’s ‘Football Inteligence’ website was launched yesterday will see him not only give his opinion on the upcoming season in England, Spain and further afield, he will also be challenged by fans in predicting what will happen week by week in all the big games in the top league.

He will also be helping those who like to wager a few pounds of their hard earned cash on the outcome of matches by giving fans inside and also bringing the views of players and managers.

Armstrong is better known nowadays as a pundit, commentating on Spain’s La Liga for Sky Sports, as well as working for ESPN on Premier League football for viewers outside of the UK.

And he will be at Windsor Park tomorrow night to see Northern Ireland take on Israel in a friendly.

“I’m always being asked to give match predictions and have been advising thousands of people in the Far East for a number of years, but I felt the time was right to create my own website to formulate all the commentary, archive information and expert advice in one place,” said Armstrong.

“What I’m especially excited about are the forums and the Fans Match Tips because there are some supporters out there who really know their stuff.”

Gerry has also opened up his own online Northern Ireland Supporters Club and is hoping that fans across the globe will sign up on www.gerryarmstrong.com.
