A few ropy ones by the look of it too from quite a few years ago. He's going to get hammered lol.

Problem is i suspect he gets hammered too often hence the dodgy tweets….

Unpopular opinion, LFC should sack Klopp and go for Sam Allardyce. He is the man to get the best out of Ricky Lambert.
What do you guys think?

I think you should f**k away off and get back to your homework.

Stallions back in a new guise….Caulker making it at international level and the big man reappears …. Coincidence….I think not!

Meatloaf!

I know. That shows how old we are getting!  I remember him playing the Oasis in Carrickmacross in the late ‘80’s. His performance as Eddie in The Rocky Horror Picture Show was legendary! 

He’s away to join the Bats in Hell!  RIP
jeez remeber going to that concert in the oasis myself, had a few tins of southern Harp on the way

What happened the wee girl was awful and sorry for slightly off topic but the media (social & MSM) definitely drives or determines who gets mourned and who doesn't. Compare Aisling to the Mongolian lady stabbed in Dublin....another one is Sarah Everard to the Muslim girl in South East London. One all over the papers, the other hardly mentioned despite being weeks apart.

Yeah absolutely, occupation always gets mentioned in the first line of the story. Marketing executive Sarah Everard, Teacher Aisling Murphy etc. You don’t really see that when it’s someone unemployed or doing menial work murdered. It’s been like that for years now I suppose. There is certainly a hierarchy of victims

And a hierarchy of assailants too. I wonder what the narrative would be if the alleged killer was a 30 year old GAA, rugby or soccer star from the town?

Do you mean he’d get a easier time if he was a local star or a worse time.

I genuinely don’t know but I suspect an easier time.

Is there any information released as to how she died yet or any possible motive?

Nothing about motive, I suppose until they have someone charged that’s up in the air. She did by strangulation it seems
If you were a run of the mill pervert I can't imagine you'd take the risk to attack and strangle a young girl in a public space at 4pm. Seems strange to me.

I thought it would be someone who had some sort of psychotic episode due to the fact that if you were in the right frame of mind and planning to do something like this, you wouldn't pick that time/location etc.  But on the flip side, the fact he seemingly got away contradicts that theory, unless it was pure random luck that he escaped capture.

Is the fella they charged the same fella that was mentioned a few days ago reporting into a hospital with cuts etc.?

Not charged yet. Arrested just and it does seem like it was the same fella

Former Real Madrid and Spanish winger Paco Gento dies. Only man to win 6 European Cup medals, a record that will hardly be exceeded.

In 60 / 70 years time, they'll be announcing the death of a former Man City player who won 7/8/9 European Cup medals

They’ll have to win 1 first….
So did Crossmaglen...

Difference being we were a established club for decades and had won in excess of 20 county titles. We had an in built ‘tradition’. City don’t and it’s hard to develop that. Show me any club in any sport that can come basically from nothing to the pinnacle and sustain it?

Full moon sounds like a real catch, imagine this weapon taking your daughter or sister out!

Aye, ye lads would be more interested taking an ATM out than a woman!
I’d say there are incels that are bigger womanisers than you
Is full moon one of our regulars back with a new handle?

Who knows but given that it is the first full moon of the year this week no wonder he is howling….

Main suspect isn't even Irish it's a Roma gypsy from Slovakia, so what this has to do with Catholic schools, dressing room banter, catcalling, men's golf clubs, WhatsApp groups, education or even Irish men writ large is beyond me.

Just more feminist man hating rubbish from the usual suspects. I doubt said suspect even went to school and isn't even here that long.

It's a terrible tragedy but just been hijacked by the usual interest groups, RTE and other attention seekers like Keith Walsh. They couldn't even give the family and loved ones a couple days privacy which they requested.

You do realise that the murder is a very very small part of what the problem is?  It’s is the worst case scenario but male violence and inappropriate behaviour towards women is widespread and endemic. This culture needs to change. The fact that you have men trying to hijack vigils for a murdered woman by exposing them self and trying to masturbate sums the issue up. If you can’t see that then you are part of the problem

You are referencing some other incident at the, not sure what your point is or what that is to do with me, just more hysterical rubbish.

Violence towards women is not endemic, statistically this is one of the safest countries in the world and history to be a woman or a man. And then there is much more violence against men.

In fairness a Crossmaglen man like yourself would know all about violence and crime, given ye boys dish enough of it out. Catch yourself on.

And there you go…..I’ll tell you what you keep believing there’s no problem.

As for the pathetic dig about who I am and where I’m from,  that’s all it is, pathetic. Easy to be a big man when no one knows you’re name. At least I’ve no problem about who I am and where I’m from. Pathetic to play the man, cowardly in fact. Are you a coward?  Do you beat up women too and that’s why you want to make out there’s no problem?

GAA Discussion / Re: Ulster Club SFC 2021

Well done to Kilcoo but you’d swear the way people are going on about them they were the best team ever in Ulster. Some people are actually stating that in some forums!

They play a very high intensity, hard working game and have a lot of talented players. They have the capacity to go the whole way but until they do I think there should be a wee bit of perspective about how good they are. I hope they do go on and win Andy but there’s still a few steps on that road yet

If you are feted as top dog in any school sport it is likely to instil confidence which can easily become cockiness, but it needs something extra for that to spill over into sexual assault. I wouldn't lay that at the door of a school or a sport.

I get that, but they all have a part to play in defining a culture of what is acceptable and what isn't but IMO home life is the biggest influence on these types of behaviours..
We've all been in changing rooms or nights out where certain things are laughed and joked about in relation to some sexual conquest or other when we really need to grow a set ourselves and call out the bullshit around us rather than play along with it, normalising it.
Would go along with all of that. If parents, schools, teams and mates make it clear what is acceptable then you'd hope it gets the message home.

Any of us who have been in that changing room or on a team night out have either passively or actively been involved in inappropriate behaviour at some stage and are all ‘guilty’ to a point. I had this conversation last night with my partner and basically confirmed this to her.  It wasn’t called out enough then though if it went too far it was.
