Minamino gone to Monaco - 15m euro plus add-ones

Good deal for all concerned...seem like a good fella but just never going to get games with the bucks in front of him

He didnt play an awful lot, but got some improtant goals particularly in the cup run. Bought for around 7m and sold for 15m after 2 years of beinga solid squad player is decent enough business.

Completely agree. He has moved on, Sadio, Divock, likely that big Nat, Neco and Ben Davies go too. That frees up the guts of £350k per week salaries wise. Nunez is £100k the 2 young lads a drop into that,  maybe a contract for Mo is not out of the question….

Did Ben Davis ever kick a ball for the Liverpool first team?

Not competitively. Played a pre-season game I think. His fee that was paid out has been recouped through the loan fee from last season so any money made on a sale is profit. Small money but still like likely to be £3-5m

At the risk of getting banned. Are they a law unto themselves. We need to stop making excuses for the traveling community. If this had happened among the "settled" population. We would be appalled and demand justice. Welcome the travellers into a multi ethnic Irish society and expect them to abide by the laws of same.

I'd say they are no different the the lawless gangs out there who have no problems murdering people over drugs

Completely agree. I grew up among many settled traveller families and they are no different to you or I. The difficulty is that whenever something like this happens,  which is often enough, they are all lumped together. There is a certain level of lawlessness among them but w wonky hear of that side of them. There are many more just struggling to get through life like the rest of us.

Would ye quit with the whole Jamie thing! The lad hasn’t played club football never mind county football for a few years, I’d say wouldn’t have been keeping himself in any major condition (he is just not that soldier!). The lad is playing a bit of club football, not ripping it up yet, he won’t play county again.

Saw the Aideen Kennedy Tweet yesterday and said it to herself earlier and she said she has died. Couldn’t believe it. Poor girl didn’t have her sorrows to seek and leaves behind kids she reared on her own. 4 siblings dead and the parents still alive. How could ye cope?

Would like to see a midfielder like Tielemens come in as well on the assumption Bellingham is not available but I would not be convinced that is the end of it, especially if Ox/Minamino and Neco all leave. It leaves us with a central midfield panel of

Hendo
Thiago
Fab
Jones
Naby
Milner

I am not including Elliott and Carvahlo as they are more attacking options. On paper it looks fine but a long term injury to Fab/Thiago/Hendo and it could get tight.

Jones needs to step up this year and become a real option for an extended run but I would be concerned about a lack of goals from midfield, especially when teams park the bus.

They say Tielemans doesnt have the legs for a Klopp midfield. Think Eliott deffo a midfield option possibly even Carvalho too but the options are still older guys with a few injuries or younger guys with plenty to prove. One singing changes the make up. JUST GIVE US A MIDFIELDER FSG YE BASSAS

Salbutamol FC know how to fix that.

To be fair to them, Man U players are never out of breath.

Except Luke Shaw when he’s chasing the ice cream van….

Kevin McStay on OTB was saying he coaches defenders in that position to not hold on to the ball if running back towards your own goal.  Just lay it off straightaway  to the keeper.  You're unsighted and if you try to turn round, bang, you're hit and the ball's dropped.

Can’t give it back to the keeper from a kickout. It can’t be underestimated how much pressure the Armagh forwards were putting the defenders under. I know we always worked hard on tackling the defenders coming out as generally there was at least 1 was ‘weak’ on the ball and either fumbled or over carried. Always chances of a goal….

Whole deal for Nunez worth €100 mio.

If it gets to €100m you would assume Liverpool will be happy to pay it as will probably mean they have won a league/Champions League and he has scored a bagful

Exactly,  he’ll have paid that many times over.

Will be interesting to see how he settles in. From what I’ve seen of him,  which isn’t a great deal,  he looks like a really exciting player. Can score with either feet and is strong in the air. We may see a slight tactical switch in how the team set up when he plays as he is very much a no 9. Bobby or Carvalho/Elliot might be in a no 10 role with a double midfield ‘pivot’. You would also like to think there’s goals for him from Trent & Robbo assists.

The booing seemed to start when Murphy was taking an age with a free when Patton was off with the black card. Not great but hardly the worst I’ve heard.

Some win, back to back performances like the last 2 are a real credit to management and players after Ballybofey. Roll on Croke Park!

God really hates them, first the 12th coverage cancelled, now this….

Both sides have been paid off through "community groups" funding for years. Rotten business. SF/DUP split it 50/50

Sure that Charter NI had scam written all over it FFS.

The Falls road, near the Royal used to be littered with various community groups, is that still the case?

I remember many years ago while I was teaching applying for one of those jobs, had it down to a tea regards the interview and ticked all the boxes, walked out confident enough and headed back to work.. lad phones me up later says brilliant interview but two other people got the job and they'd hold on to my number and give me a ring if they didnt work out..

Two buck ejjits from the road were lined up for the job, one could barely tie his laces never mind do an interview, needless to say they phoned about a month later offering me the job, politely told them to f**k off ;D

Jobs for Mo Chara’s…..

Ring up Fortwilliam Dental Practice, ask for Chris Scannell and mention you are a massive Cliftonville fan!


Definitely….Chris will fit you in no problem if you want to talk football ;D

I ended up getting antibiotics which at the minute seems to have calmed things down, had about 3 hours sleep each night, the pain, that throbbing pain!! f**k! The amount of drugs Ive taken is way over the top!!

Re'd a game last night though and I was very relaxed lol... might be the way to go going forward  ;)

You should have made a few questionable calls….a slap in the mouth might have sorted out your tooth ache!
