Anything with 16 in the title!

Perfect day by Lou Reed had a darker undertone (drug taking).

Each side here continues to wind up the other crowd. We just can't seem to help ourselves. Time to grow up and move on.

Are the board really surprised Mourinho is after short term fixes?  They went for a short-term fix manager when they recruited him.

I'll miss his over the top reactions to a team like Barcelona getting knocked out of the CL. The end of a an era everytime according to Eamon.  Always seemed to be a bit of a niggle between him and Brady.

I thought he looked a bit lost and isolated after Bill and John went. Will miss the drama and the over the top reactions to teams losing a game.

A basic question any reporter needs to ask Paisley is why he was on the receiving end of luxury hols from the Sri Lankan government.

BBC 2 now Shankly : Natures Fire
Thanks for that. I put it on record when I saw your post. Watched it tonight. Very good.

Great show.  The scenes from the street crowds in the 1960s around the time of the first fa cup win were incredible.  He was a messianic figure.

Visited Sri Lanka a few years back, before the Tsunami hit. Lovely people, awful poverty.  When I think of the guts of 100 grand being lavished on individuals like Paisley when there's so much poverty there, it ain't right.

I'll not believe it until I see him play his first game in a Liverpool jersey  :D

Yeah i think he's safe too. Just a pity he is pro brexit :(

Just a matter of time until may goes i think. She is a weak leader and quite frankly with some decisions she has made a vile woman who's only saving grace is she is less vile than gove, boris or rees mogg.

That bunch would remind you of the Addams family.

Good to see a bid at last.  Hard to know how this will fare out. Other clubs will be interested in him and are Roma that fussed on selling?

That video is worryingly hilarious

Those people are actually elected and they actually believe giving a gun to a four year old is ok. Just think about that, think about a four year old that you know and now imagine giving them a gun
Just WOW

Give someone enough rope.  Is this typical of the gun lobby view or just one fool who can't think straight. Hope it's the latter.

The spirit of 77 would be enough to carry Armagh through to the Super 8s.  Only worry is whether we have the players of the same abilities?

I have been as critical of McGeeney as anyone else but he has brought this squad to a stage where they are reaching a level of maturity that has been stilted by playing Division 3 for too long.  He has been handicapped by the withdrawals of players for whatever reasons and by injuries, although they affect all teams.

They have the potential to beat Roscommon if McGeeney can resist his usual impulse in bigger games to change the style of play to supposedly deal with the opposition threat like in last year's Tyrone match.  Best to build on the current game plan and go for it against Roscommon, we would rather go down attacking than wilt against a reasonable but flaky Roscommon team with some amended defensive system.

Completely agree on that last point.

I hate defensive football but watching a mimic is worse than watching the real thing
The spirit of 77? you surely mean the luck and incompetent ref of 77 Mr. Collins of westmeath, Mickey Freyne had a perfect goal disallowed for square ball, Armagh got a penalty to bring them back into the game and the foul was clearly yards outside the area if it was a foul at all and if you think im doting just read Eugene McGees book "great all-ireland semi finals" and he says everything I have said here and of course we had the very sporting Armagh manager walking across the field and sledgeing the great Dermott Earley before he took a late 45 when the game was level, to the day he died Dermott would not say what O Neill said to him that day, more class than O Neill I would say.

You're still sore then.  Did Roscommon not contribute anything to their own downfall that day or was it all due to bad luck, refereeing and bad sportsmanship?

Question for Armagh fans

If you had to choose between :

A) England winning the world cup
B) Tyrone winning Sam again
C) Root Canal treatment

which would you choose ?

Never had one but I would go for C without the local anastehtic

Root canal's not that bad.

The world cup needs some kind of more robust seeding because this year the final will totally be devalued with a very weak team in it. One of england, sweden, croatia or russia will make the final. On the other side of the draw there are 4 very strong teams all of whom would be worthy fianlists. It would’ve been great to see a final of Brazil/belgium v Uruguay/France.
England in this tournament have reached the qf and the only teams they have beaten are tunisia and panama. I can see their game v sweden going to pens but if they come through that they will most likely be beaten by croatia who are technically far superior.

If the 'big' teams aren't good enough so be it. That's sport.  Any team that makes it through the final fully deserves their chance.  I remember Germany getting through to the 2002 final with a poor enough side.  The big countries can have ropey teams too.
