Tyrone played more as individuals. When they weee put under some pressure in the 2nd half they didn't pull together as a unit and lacked leaders to close out the game. It shows what the team has the potential to do. But whether it's a lack of confidence by the players or lack of game management by the sideline I don't know. The reality is that in patches they can play some nice football. But seem to lack consistency too much to be a threat unfortunately.
Lads away and have a look at yourselves. Arguing every single call that was against your team. There was very little in the reffing of that game that was controversial.
The last couple of pages would make your head hurt.

Never been a big take away lover. Not sure if it's just in general or the fact most local ones are muck. After a Chinese or chippy I just feel like crap. Love getting to a nice indian but it's a rare occurrence.
That said, you can't go wrong with pizzas. Would be my go to when looking a fast food hit.

Do many still have the auld deep fat fryer? We've never had one since getting married and I vowed never to get one in as I'd fall into the lazy trap to often.
We've an actifry for few years now and love the chips out of it. Missus had to get the ninja there too. And despite initial objections given we already had an air fryer, it's used every day. Oven rarely goes on now unless it's a pasta bake, lasagna etc that doesn't fit in the ninja.

Quote from: Last Man on April 17, 2024, 09:18:58 AMSo you have heat in the rads but no HW?

Aye, rads pumping hot, The boiler in fairness hasn't had a check up in a few years, some parts were replaced a while back, was just looking a quick temp fix till I get someone to have a quick assessment on it, she's said someone might call this evening but I'll not hold my breath
If heating working don't think it's a boiler issue as it's obviously firing. More likely a motorised value or pump issue.
We have an issue with a pump every winter. Pump was clogged as heating wasn't on in house over summer and had to remove and manually spin to release it as it had seized. Easy to do, Allan keys to remove and then screwdriver to spin the pump/ loosen it.

*Edit Make sure water shut off before removing tho!!
Quote from: bennydorano on April 17, 2024, 09:38:22 AMIf you follow Linehan and the likes, the debate is much wider than transgender rights and womens' rights being trampled on tho, its also about young people (some highly vulnerable) transitioning at  immature ages, unnecessary surgeries, puberty blockers. Some dangerous stuff becoming orthodoxy.

Wanting to discuss it in a reasonable manner is not anti anything either. That has been a huge part of the problem, debate being shut down, people being black balled & vilified for daring to question anything.
I think most people start of in a reasonable manner but it escalates quickly by both sides. The trying to use extreme scenarios to justify not extending some rights to trans people as mentioned above is bad faith arguments.This just as much as the vilification of people is the issue. It's one of those topics that has fallen into the left/ right identification scale. And as we've seen on here those arguments always end up messy.
I would see myself slightly left of middle. But with mixed viewpoints on the trans issue. It's not an easy subject to navigate.
Was a red for me on first and second viewing. At best reckless, as intent is unknown. But you'll see some given as red and some yellow depending on the ref.
Quote from: theskull1 on April 15, 2024, 09:46:33 AMDo you want to edit your post to "anyone calling an entire group of people 'freaks' needs to take a look at themselves" so it doesn't look like you're moving the goalposts?  ;)

Was it not fairly obvious he was replying to Armagh18. Who was calling an entire group freaks.
Quote from: Tony Baloney on April 14, 2024, 11:30:28 PMThere was disproportionate emphasis put on the feelings and needs of a tiny percentage of the population due to an even smaller percentage within that cohort being headbanger activists, aided and abetted by Liberal voices, bullying dissenting voices (mostly speaking sense). That imbalance thankfully seems to be being addressed. Trans people should have their rights but they shouldn't come at the cost of others.
Both imbalances need to be addressed. Those happy to label other groups freaks etc should also be shouted down. Hopefully that will continue to be challenged by most people.
To be fair, I think you have to give credit to Captain Obvious. He's been doing sterling work there in the back ground, getting into the players heads over the last few weeks. Was only a matter of time before he got them to crack.

Quote from: bennydorano on April 14, 2024, 07:46:17 AMHas there been a bit of a sea change in general opinion? Seems to be a bit of common sense entering the debates - previously dismissed or shut down debates  imo.
The average person has common sense with these freaks. But they get called out for it so are afraid to say much.
I certainly don't view trans people as freaks. Trans rights shouldn't trump womens' rights tho (& their right to feel safe in women only areas), that seemed to be the road it was hurtling down for a long time. A section of the trans movement appear to not want to assimilate into society either. I don't care if they want to assimilate or not but I don't think society should have to put up with some of their outrageous nonsense either. They should have equality in society, they should also respect others in society.
I think this is the case. Most people would have issues with the some of the proposals put forward by the trans movement. But equally most would refrain from calling them freaks. There's people from both sides on this board and all levels in between.

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on April 12, 2024, 09:24:53 AMSalah for whatever reasons is not at the races, that's a fair reflection no?

Could hit a hatful at the weekend. Think Klopp said he didnt think Atalanta were going to be as good? with the title run in he has to rotate, Atalanta not in same position back in Italy so they flogged their players last night. Think they made one change on 88 minutes or something

I'd be an advocate of putting out my strongest team, put the home leg to bed and move on with a lesser tea the next day. Thats probably why I'm not a PL manager  ;D

It's tempting to think that Liverpool COULD turn the tie around, but I'm sure the bookies would give you at least 10/1. Has it ever been done heading away in the second leg?

Still, I think Klopp has to at least try. They're not heading to the Bernebeau like last year. Atalanta were superb, but Liverpool were plainly not ready for what they brought. If they do go there properly prepared and up for it, you never know what could happen if they grab the first goal.

Of course, Liverpool have a habit of NOT grabbing the first goal this season!

Would 0-3 down at half time do you? Vague recollection of a game that went that way...

I see the LGFA aren't putting representatives forward for Feile for the u15 girls part from grade 1. Couldn't organise pitches to get the blitzes run off and this wkend was the last opportunity. Bit of a shambles all round but suppose the excessive bad weather didn't help. Pity for the girls as it can be a great comp!
