Is this not a case again of soccer clubs standing with their hands out waiting for tax payers to provide them with facilities?

Why if they want somewhere of 'their own' do they not fund raise and go and buy somewhere?

This attitude from soccer clubs of all hues of pure entitlement needs to be changed. Goes right from the top through the game, expecting tax payers to fund their past times.

Getting fed up to the back teeth on here and other social media outlets of this debate.

You can have an opinion about absolutely anything that is a basic right, but you know what they say about opinions.

This anti-fact shit started with Trump, just basically making stuff up for idiots to believe.

If you do not have a medical background, or are an expert on vaccines or pandemics, then shut the F**k up, posting and re-posting articles with no understanding of them, their origin or their authenticity is helping no one.

Fearful of the Chelsea match at the weekend being honest, they are at the opposite end of the scale confidence and organisation wise. I will be happy to see a fighting performance regardless of the score (within reason) the reason for the Liverpool and City defeats being so hard to take was that lack of fight.

To be fair there were signs of it on Tuesday evening but this is a test on a different level to that.

Not just Luckhurst pushing this one, insiders in PSG have made no secret they want Zidane, so there could be a compromise reached pretty quick as Zidane is available straight away.

Poch has talked about a project at PSG but has no control over it as Leonardo calls the shots.

If there is a bigger project out there than United at the moment I dont know where it is.

Poch has been a target in the past and it just hasnt worked out. I think it would be a decent appointment, all the rumours going about are that he wants more say on the football side of things at PSG but won't get them.

I wouldn't see anything wrong with him coming in and having full say on the football side of things at United, as there doesnt seem to be anyone else capable of making coherent decisions.

Looking at Cargin they made an academy about 20 years ago purely to put emphasis on youth as whether your an u6 new start or a Kieran close your treated equally, always compete at all grades and fair play to them, hard work from top ex senior players on every age group also, been at top at senior level now going on 40+ years, that's no accident, it takes everyone, Creggan been the same for a long time also, Men and Woman giving up their free time to forward the club on to another level, fact is it's not all about the senior team, that's were alot of other clubs fail.there is no quick fix.

So can someone tell me why a club with this level of organisation and obvious commitment from serious ex players, not able to get a club man to manage their senior team.

Surely there is a neglect then on the development of coaches within the club if they are unable to do so.

A wonderful club and a credit to their members and community. I wish them every success.

I donít think you are going to convince anyone that they donít pay a manager though.

The crux of it is whether it is acceptable or cheating I suppose.

Or acceptable cheating.

You gotta meet our esteemed treasurer......then you will.understand.....not a chance.

Been about here a long time and can assure you Cargin club do not provide 'expense' to any outside management....

Fact..!

CB that argument might wash a little better had your previous manager not have been who he was  ;)

Going to tell you again......Cargin club, do not provide payment/expenses to any of their vast array of management.

Come and meet the treasurer and be convinced.

We don't need to meet anyone, yes Cargin club do not provide payment to a manager directly, but sponsors of the club/ members meet that particular bill on the side. Monies which ultimately could be used for a different function within the club.

The club pay it/ members pay it, it's no difference it is all money from the same community being used to pay an individual.

Dance around it any way you like, doesn't change the basic facts.

Wow things have taken a turn for the worse when some one comes in here and is posting The Spectator.

I think when you are turning to that rag it is time to take a look at yourself and maybe just not in relation to Covid either.

sinn fein will probably back passports because the dup might block them  but if dup vote for them then sinn fein might go against them so they can play off each other

No. SF have always said they'd be in favour of them because it's the bloody sensible thing to do. I believe all the parties bar DUP/TUV are backing them.

This whole "they're as bad as each other" narrative is a very lazy analysis.


did sinn fein not  vote against or abstain in the south

SF voted against them in the South.

lol I canny wait until people realise what fork tongued wishy washy dicks SF are.

To them its about 2 things

Vote against DUP
Vote against FF/FG

Gimps

The wonderful thing is about your statement (leaving SF out of it) if you followed your own advice there I doubt you would be too far wrong on many things going against the DUP FF & FG  :)

Just saying like  ;D

France strict vaxx passport policy highest number of cases since august

So the problem with a vaccine passport is what?

give people a false sense of security to galivant all over the place

I would think you will find that those people, who firstly got the vaccine and secondly went to the trouble of downloading the passport are more likely to have the sociable responsibility to avoid 'galivanting' more than was needed after 18 months of lockdown.

Had the vax passports been introduced at the correct time, when restrictions were being eased it would have made more sense.
For what it is worth I still think it is worth doing, we kind of thought people would take personal responsibility for their safety and the safety of others, they haven't done so, therefore restrictions must be placed on those who wont. You can't have it every way unfortunately in this case.

Fair play to Creggan manager Gerard Mc Nulty for getting his just reward. In his two years he has drawn a final and won a final against their formidable rivals. A very worthy achievement, and especially as far as I am aware neither of the McNulty brothers ever put a price on their services. The hard work has been rewarded, and the feeling of pride must be immense. Enjoy the moment.

Is there a lesson in here for other clubs? Or is it too far gone at this stage.

It has more prestige ,but New Zealand were on the beer during the week. They had played 14 International since June while Ireland had played 4. They were coming to Europe on.a bit of a wind down.

Ireland beat the All Blacks in 16 and 18.and flopped where it mattered against Japan at the WC.
The reason they were beaten at the RWC was because they were predictable. They need to work on this for next time.

Hence showing your hand this far out from a WC may be not the wisest thing to do, but no one goes out not to give it their all and hence why I think Saturdays performance was pleasing in that not only did Ireland dominate the ball in a way they've never done against any AB side, they weren't hanging on and if anything the 9 point win didn't tell the true tale of the dominance Ireland had.

One thing of concern is Irelands inability to come away with points when camped on the try line. The AB defence was superb but there's only so much crashing over the line you can do before accepting it's futile and a bit more width out back could have helped. Lowe's try came from sucking in AB defenders only for a few quick passes out the back putting Lowe in space to finish in the other corner.
More of that please.

O'Mahoney is a penalty giving away machine but he's on that edge that McCaw used to inhabit and must be a pain for the opposition, Farrell has found he's the man for the last 10 minutes. Beirne also better coming in fresh rather than starting and although I think he's better than Henderson in the round, Henderson can hammer away for 50 odd minutes before introducing Beirne..

Nice to see Doris going so well after all his concussion woes.
They need to get more out of incursions into the AB 22.
The AB 2013 vintage  were very like Kilkenny of the time . They were inside Ireland's head. Everyone knew they were going to win. Same as 2012 hurling final.
Now is different. What Ireland learn from now until the RWC is what will count.

No it won't exactly the same thing will happen again, they will get to the world cup and without the comfort of playing at home will do what they have done before. When the level goes up at WC time they just can't live with it.
AB been on a majorly long tour and the freshness of the Irish team showed through clearly.

Great win in a friendly game.
