Is it not just a case of an unfortunate accident?  ;D

Ace midfielder Brown was spot on when he said way back at the beginning of the season that Aberdeen would be the likely 2nd best team in the league.

I had a wry smile when I read Tom English's article posted on the BBC web site,
pretty much said that if the gap (grand canyon more likely) was to diminish somewhat, that Rangers would have to do a loaves and fishes job, Celtic would have to burn Rodgers at the stake and make further mistake after mistake, losing their way to the CL group stage and after that continue to  "lose their way in a major fashion".

Really enjoyable El Classico alright. Messi is a genius

It was a weekend of really good football all round, capped by el clasico - that Chelsea-Spurs tie was a cracker.
Superb stuff. I thought Barca had missed the boat but the great man came up trumps at the end. There was much more effort off the ball from Messi last night, tracking back that we used to see in the Guradiola era but which we don't always see any more.

Ramos really is the panto villain. Did I hear 22 sendings off now? And complaining about it.

One black mark on the game was Gerry Armstrong's commentary. Surely it's time to put Gerry somewhere peaceful.

I had some laugh at Ray Hudson on beIN Sports

Hudson just squealed at the last 2 goals. Like a pig being slaughtered. Good laugh though.
Yet another Tyrone fckwit with his simile obscenity.
Good laugh though.

I think there's a good chance that it was intentional considering the systematic heavy contact fouling of Messi throughout the game.
 From the live angle, Messi had pulled to towards the side, away from the direct line of  contact, it could be interpreted that Marcello lifts his elbow higher than what was entailed for protection and made bloody contact. Just it's difficult to tell just how much intent was there.

Messi certainly got the bit between his teeth after that and was chomping on it.
Ironic then, given the state of the game, that Marcello decided not to take Roberto out en route to setting up the winner.
If only Marcelo had a few drops of Tyrone dna in his system he wouldn't have hesitated to chop Roberto down in that blink of an eye moment ;D you can see he tried to rectify that but couldn't get close to the player with the ball

A selection of Messi moments of genius from the game and the systematic assaults to stop him.

Ray Hudson's legend, a real walk on the wild side,
'Messi --  born in the crossfire hurricane and he's jumpin' jack flash,  right here - amazing football' :D

The Sky Sports would have you bored stone dead, with mogadon drone T Henry in the studio and Gerry
  "oh my goodness  .....unbelievable!!" Armstrong as co commentator.

The LOD s4 lawyer had a main role in a medic drama
Line of duty maintaining  the high standards of the first 3 series , brilliant show

But who da hell has killed the girls? or anyone for that matter??? is a cracking show

the lawyer has had two brilliant lines (put downs) calling Dunbar Pasley and your man Ironside

I'm late to it and don't know who's been killed and by whom, but its gripping in fairness will all the skullduggery and backhandedness, you don't know who's covering for who all the time.

You're ok Johnney, know one knows
We can rule out Steve,Ted and Kate,
however, 'I suspect everyone else and I suspect no one' ;D
If it's chronic narcissist Roz, that would be too obvious, wouldn't it?
That creepy assistant Chief Constable Derek has emerged into the top of the suspect zone, him being Tony's chief from S1. Tony who was blackmailed because of a body stored in a freezer which contained his dna and was there not a balaclava attacker in S1?  The suspense's on a par with the sight of Dave O'Leary as he placed the ball for that 5th penalty, a tv audience holds its breath.

Why did Maneet betray the AC squad and lay the false trail? Who's putting the squeeze on her? was there a clue I missed?

He's back - 
Better Call Saul S.3 just started the other day.
I'm a very late comer to Breaking Bad. Not long into Season 3. Do I watch them all to very end first, or does Better Call Saul start before the final series of BB ends? 

BCS is Saul's life (as Jimmy McGill, his real name) before BB starts. It's not necessary to watch BB to understand and fully appreciate BCS in its own right and the storylines don't interlink at all, so far. Inevitably, familiarity with Saul in BB enriches the BCS experience but it's not in any way necessary to see all of BB before watching BCS. Mike from BB is also a leading character in BCS and we're told Gus Fring makes his appearance this series.
I'd say Hound should stay on the trail to the end with BB seeing as he's at S3 and don't intermingle BB with BCS.
He can watch BCS after he's finished with BB.

The storylines from both series do naturally interlink because BCS is a prequel not a spin off, but the storylines are not interlinked to a spoiling extent. Knowing what happens in BB does not  spoil your viewing of BCS.

As good and all as the sporting fare was on offer this weekend, there was an empty space, I did miss GAA football, hurling doesn't do it for me. I would even have relished a modest Ulster championship prelim.

That was a classic el clasico.
and classic celebration on that last minute winner.

That's a great photo capturing a classic iconic sporting image of the ages, as if to say we came here a once great team team in supposed decline. We have shipped a load of arrows over the past months including the recent devastating defeats to Juve, our league challenge is tottering. We came here, we had to win and we conquered this great Real Madrid team. We were brilliant, we were defiant to the end. I scored one of the finest goals that only the truly gifted footballers can score and to cap it all, I  also scored a glorious winner in the last second and in the heat of this goal celebration it is all dedicated to this great club.

It's as iconic as O'Neill's show of defiance with Neil Lennon after the fiery Glasgow derby defeat at Ibrox in 2004 and in the context of years of legitimised bigot abuse directed at Lennon.

Can you lift a team mate up to catch the ball, like in a line-out in rugby? Be deadly for the smallish Tyrone lads trying to get a mark.

There's no rule against it. So if you did it and the ref blew it, it'd be interesting to hear his reason and what rule he was invoking.

If that's the case, could a player be lifted up to sit/stand on the crossbar to prevent a winning point?
:)
Agreed, but why not have 3 players on the crossbar (strength permitting of course) just to be sure of stopping the ball before it crossed the bar, as it is not written in the rules (or the book of genesis) that we can't?
For that matter, there is no rule saying we can't shove the ball up the jersey, take 4 giant leaps and give birth to ball in a more advantageous location on the pitch.
Yes ref, what do you have to say about that?

How in feck did Marcelo not take a yellow and kill the game. 2-2 and the league is over. Let Roberto run across him with 30sec left.

Idiotic.
He's heard of a specific Irish pundit who calls your manhood into question if you even contemplate such a cowardly act.
If yr being paid 100,000+ per week to win a league - you make that foul......
Typical Tyrone imbecilic angst  ;D

Who can forget the most inept line in the history of football analysis,
"Rangers drew 1-1 at Celtic Park last month,have momentum and a tactically astute manager who has made an immediate impact."  ;D  ;D
