Seems clear to me these negotiations will never get to an end and Tory government will fall.

Tory government will fall, Labour get in at next election, decide that so much as happened, and the UK needs a 'Clear the Air' referendum about leaving the EU or otherwise, Remain will win by a big majority and everyone is left wondering what the last couple of years have been about.

Fan fiction. Corbyn is a Eurosceptic too.

Last time I checked catholic teaching regards homosexuality as sinful,and the Church opposes gay marriage and any amendment to current abortion legislation as it applies in the North
Civil marriage laws are Ceaser's business.
Gay people have sex married or not - so the Church can preach against homosexual sex -as opposed to homosexuality which is a natural situation as some people are that way by nature.
If we're all created by God -then He must be happy to have some people homosexual.
Never came across Jesus saying anything against homosexuality  or homosexuals in the Gospels. 

PS-- Does calling them the "North east 200" mean you've  given up on "northernirishness"?
😆

I think the events of the last fortnight have shaken things up enough that his WUMming would be too obvious to keep going down that track for the time being.

It’s always been obvious.

Kingsman 2 was the most aggressively bad film I’ve seen in a long time. The fact the first film was a genuinely surprising and fun film only heightened the sense of increduality at how bad the sequel is. After the first scene with shîtty CGI and stakeless action I had a feeling I was in for a turkey and nothing that followed changed that perception.

Agreed, a serious let down after first one.

The Disaster Artist is a super movie, bit mad but some genuinely funny parts and because is based on a true story all the better for it. Lags a touch in the middle but it is worth it. James Franco immense in it.

Looking forward to seeing The Disaster Artist, I’d recommend the book by Greg Sestro (Mark) that it’s based on as from what I’ve heard it, if anything, simplifies what is an absolutely amazing, dark and comic story.

The audiobook is read by Sestro himself and it’s excellent, his Tommy Wiseau impression is even better than Franco’s.

Anyone looking at where Man Utd were before Jose and where they are now and saying he’s not the answer is asking a different question to most people.

The old trick with o2 when you contacted them was to say you were going on holidays in a few days and it sped up the process.

Just do it online, contact Vodafone through their Boards.ie forum as the reps that man it are usually more senseable than the ones you get through their website.

2012 Donegal one wasn't o'neills was it? and the 2012 was brutal. the o'neills one after was decent

My mistake, I meant the one after the 2012 jersey.

That Donegal jersey is retro in a bad way. Good jersey design can evoke the past without integrating the elements that severely date it in the process. The 2012 era Donegal jersey was one of the most aesthetically pleasing jerseys ever made by O'Neills.

De Gea was very very poor with those two goals. He needs to be spreading himself, making the target smaller. That boy is so overrated.

Stop trying so hard.

Celtic fans today......

I am sure its a major topic of conversation in the bars of the East end of Glasgow

Why are you always such a p***k?

Because its great fun upsetting the useful idiots of the Left on this site

Shame you don't really know what you're talking about tho isn't it

ffs you couldn't find Palestine on the map

Give it a rest. You know nothing about me. You just continue to out yourself as a know it all idiot. Unless of course you mean google maps which have already decided Palestine doesn't exist.

Google never removed Palestine from the map as was claimed, indeed the only change that did occur was years before the controversy was kicked up - the labelling of locations changing from ‘Palestianian territories’ to ‘Palestine’ to bring it into line with United Nations recommendations. Apple Maps doesn’t delliniate between Israel and Palestine on the map at all, unlike Google Maps, but of course you wouldn’t know that as there wasn’t a high profile attempt to drum up controversy about it.

Supporters of the Palestinians have reems of real grievances they can point to so it’s incredible that they try to manufacture controversies like this and tank their own credibility in the process. Hardline Israelis would be delighted.

This thread is like a sad parody of the real thing.

In the past United had more money and better players than City - Hence why United won most of the time. The tide has turned.

(Not in my life time)

They’d plenty money in the 80’s but never won because there were better teams.. stupid post

Money wins *hint* titles, in all sports.

So why didn’t they win in the 80’s?

Note the absence of the word all in the previous post. Empirical v anecdotal evidence is something a lot of people here seem to confuse. Fin.

Nope, when you say money wins titles in all sports I’d say you mean all sports including football, Utd were the big spenders, but as tommy has alluded to, shit managers

Think about where all is missing in that sentence, because you totally missed the point.

It's a first defeat at Old Trafford in 41 games for United and no real surprise to see Manchester City win however I am surprised a record breaking City couldn't score from open play and had to rely on errors for goals. If Van Nistelrooy,Van Persie,Cantona,Rooney at his peak had that Lukaku chance on 86 minutes it would have been 2-2.

Much as you want to believe otherwise, Lukaku made a fine connection with a cross that was behind him, and faced with a defender and a keeper within the third of the goal that he could direct the ball towards, was very unlucky that it hit the keeper’s face.

But apparently he’s the 1st united centre forward to miss any sort of a chance since Peter Davenport.
Nice spin on missing a sitter.

You don't take correction very well.

Corofin game off.

Costly postponement for Corofin, you'd hope the costs for the refixture will be covered by the GAA.
Or play the rescheduled fixture played in Galway?

Nonsense to suggest Fulham should lose home advantage because of an act of nature. That would set a terrible precedent.
