Shocking decision for the sending off in fairness. Yellow at best.

And what was Aguero to do being confronted by a fan? Surely the Christ everyone should be more concerned about the scum invading the field and confronting the players?

Its a tough call, but i think that's a red.
Both feet off the ground and flew into the can argue the other way but certainly not a 'shocking decision'

It has to be done in stages. You can't get a seismic shift in gun control passed in the US, so it's pointless trying. Take it step by step. And surely the most obvious first stage is to stop the sale of automatic weapons. There is no reasonable argument for that. You would have to hope that this would have support by enough in the US to get through. If not, then I'm sorry stew, but the collectives calls for stupidity against the US have some grounding.
So remove these weapons first. Then move to review the license process and make it much more strict. As wobbler mentioned, then move to restrict ammunition. Then remove to look at hand guns etc. Peel it back slowly over many years if it has to be. But at least start the process now, don't kick the can down the road anymore.

Its not that  complicated.
Start with banning removing the weapons capable of doing the most damage, the assault rifles.
No one expects this to be done over night, it may take 20 years or more, but at least try!

I was always a big fan of Agger when he was at the club, such a pity he could never stay fit.

I've shared many times that I am a gun owner. We've always had guns about the house since I was a teenager. I enjoy hunting and I have a handgun for home protection.  I am not however an NRA 1st Amendment yank......
I'm as concerned as the next man about all of this. My kids go to school in Florida (for how much longer I don't know).  What is the answer here?
The crazies and the criminals are not going to hand over their guns.  If ordinary people like me hand over there guns what kind of society does this leave us with?
I think we are long passed the point of no return on this. It might have been dealt with 10 or 15 years ago but not now.
So I ask again what you think the answer is?
I've read lots of comments about how stupid america is and how stupid the political parties are and how stupid.... whats the solution???

Lets talk honestly then.

You a hand gun owner? Or are you an automatic weapon designed to inflict "maximum damage on enemy combatants", owner?

Do you think your gun ownership right now makes a single impact to our society? You think the crazies and the criminals know, or care that you have a gun, or guns?

It is insane to think that the guns in your safe or in your cabinets or on your hip make your society a safer place. For you, or for anyone else.

How frequent is the "Brave citizen with a gun" story - compared to the frequencies of the massacres our communities are witnessing?

I understand and respect the historical and cultural nuances of firearms in the United States of America. I don't advocate for a ban on owning a firearm. Hell, even on owning more than one.

However, the fact that 10-15 of my friends and acquaintances are capable of carrying our Las Vegas volume murder from an "arsenal perspective" and the only thing preventing this is that they currently aren't inclined to kill people - is completely COMPLETELY f**king bananas.
Handgun and bolt action rifle and a wee pellet rifle for the cats ;)
The crazies or criminals don't care I have a gun - but they should if they step in to my home.  I don't get your point or your question? Am I trying to make society safer or better? Nope. I'm selfishly protecting my own family and not ashamed to say it.
Iceman there are a world of measures that could be implemented that would have no effect on you carrying a hand gun for protection (not that I agree with that, but that's another matter) ban these crazy assault ruffles and semi automatic weapons. No one, not a single person in the general population has any need to have access to these.
This won't solve the problem, but it certainly will reduce the amount of damage these guys can do in a mass shooting.

Stew - it's obvious. I can't believe it has to be explained to you. Nothing is being done to stop the slaughter of thousands upon thousands of US citizens facilitated by the NRA. However, when some Islamist nut commits an atrocity the whole religion is demonised and people from certain countries banned from entering the US. It's a joke except for the seriousness of it.

Did a Muslim commit this atrocity? No! Then how about we focus on the scum that did and more importantly, the victims of the atrocity, how about that.

Or focus on the politicians who continue to let this happen with their refusal to implement any sort of sensible gun reform.

Hopefully this will be this spark that will lead Mane to be as good as he was last year.

Best midfield performance I've ever seen Milner give!

I wouldnt be going OTT on the performance. We've done plenty similar this year, and followed it up with dross. When we get ahead and don't commit defensive hari kari, we're very good. But...
Yeah thought Milner was excellent last night.
Milner was excellent and really set the tone for the performance, how he escaped a booking though i will never know!

This madness has to stop. The biggest terrorist organisation in the world is the NRA who buy and sell US politicians, mostly republicans, for their own sordid purposes. These politicians are accessories to murder as well as corrupt. Frankly, in my opinion, people who oppose gun control are sub human animals because hey are directly facilitating the murder of kids. And I don't choose those words lightly.

I know you are way wrong here Seanie, I dont think you are!

I despise the NRA and you are correct in saying the NRA owns to many politicians, it does, that said to say that anyone who opposes gun control is sub human is disgraceful and wrong, by your logic what goes that make women qho have abortions or the doctors who perform abortions?

Pro gun people tend to be by and large extremely good citizens, they have grown up around guns and they feel the law is on their side, which it is, the law clearly states that every citizen has the right to bear arms, not only that but many feel that they are  a part of a necessary militia if and when a  tyrannical government tries to repress the right on the people, and, as you know, this is a big part of what the founding fathers wrote about when forging the constitution.

I know many gun owners and I disagree with many of them, every one of them is a tax paying citizen in good standing, not a one of them has done any time I know of so my question is, how the hell are they sub human Seanie?
I am sure there are plenty of decent people who own guns, but that doesn't make the current gun laws any less wrong.

The fact that this is an argument shows how bat-shit crazy many Americans are

That might be the Mane issue sorted. Some performance away from home in fairness.
As strange as it sounds, I actually thought mane wasn't great last night, especially in the first half!
The third goal was a great finish though and he seemed to grow in confidence as the game went on. Hopefully thats him back in a bit of form again.

Unionism is just buying itself some time by continuing to say no but the anger from nationalists is palpable after yesterdays latest collapse. Arlene Foster has reawakened nationalism in a way that Paisley and Robinson failed to do and nationalists are just fed up to the back teeth of being forced to accept attempted unionist dominance and sneering.   

You would also think that Jim Allister is on a retainer from Stephen Nolan or how is an insular thinking backward bigot like him given so much air time.

Allister is on Nolan for the simple reason that you just proved. He stokes the fires, causes anger/reaction and people to comment on him/Nolan thus keeping Nolan relevant. Ignore/turn off Nolan, best thing I've did in years. I haven't watched Nolan in around 2 years but I could tell you exactly how the show went last night.
I've given up on Nolan now as well, and I actually think that show is part of the problem here. Its main objective seem to be to polarise people as much as possible in order to create outrage and therefore ratings.
Jim Allisters party got around 3000 votes in the last election, yet he is constantly on Nolan as if he has any sort of mandate. The same with Bryson.

What a performance from Jonjo!  lorded the mid field today.

Outstanding anytime I see him play.. better than Henderson?
I seen someone on twitter say about Shelvey, 'he has everything, but is just missing something' sums him up pretty well.

What was the newsflash of at the end of tonight’s episode? Thought it a poignant enough ending to show what life here was like back then.

Thought it was the Shankill bombing myself.  1993.  10 died (including the bomber), but the TV show referred to 12, so obviously just artistic licence.

Thought it was a great episode and look forward to a new series.

I suppose they wanted to make it a 'generic' incident (for want of a better word) rather than a real historic event.
The sad thing is, it could have been any of a number of days in the 80s/90s

This episode is s rip-off of Napoleon Dynamite!

Possibly but still very funny and the best episode by a mile!!

Probably Omagh!
I enjoyed that last night, the ending was great.

1. A great episode
2. Wasn't a real incident, but based on Omagh due to scale

Presumably he's looking for an Irish whiskey then. Can't go wrong with a bottle of Green Spot towards the top end of your price range.
Yeah, green spot is hard to beat for me
