But he gave the right decision, whether by luck judgement. Not a penalty by the photo.

JFC  : Eire Og robbed last night by two poor decisions.
A clearbpoint signalled wide by umpire.
A definite penalty given as a free in in square!

Good game Delgany? Mals for a final appearance? nobody will get near sars though

The photo in the match report on the Saffron Gael site would suggest the referee got the call right in regards to the free...

There's alot more interaction with the crowd and players after matches in Germany though, it's pretty commonplace to see things like that going on. There was a clip on Twitter earlier of the Dortmund team in a line like Liverpool in front of their support and the whole place singing Jingle Bells after their match!

Apparently nobody got booked or sent off for St Malachy's and the only names the Ref took were from Antrim!! There's reverberations through the refereeing fraternity and they want to see does lightning strike twice.... the day after St Patrick's Day... talk about loading the dice!!!  :P

Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson is lining up a 13m move for FC Twente winger Bryan Ruiz.(Daily Mirror)

Has anyone heard of this guy!?

Would be an area we need to improve, but i think Roy can hopefully get the arm around babel and he can live up to his potential.  Rafa was never a man for doing this and Roy appears to have done this with Duff for example at Fulham and Zamora also. 

we def need to sign a left back i think that is the priority though there is a shortage of them out there, especially at a reasonable price.   >:(

Yeah he was one of the stars of the dutch league last year. Was probably Twente's best player. Scored a sh*t load of goals from a left wing/forward position.

Kuyt, babel, hmmmmm?  I know players must stand on their own merits but with Jovanovic commited and able to play that role surely 13 m would be better spent.  I know Benny is gone but we still have Maxi, Kuyt,Babel and at least for now Riera.  It would be better to get a strong LB and another out and out striker.  Let Nemeth and Pacheco get as much game time as possible in the Europa and Carling cup. 

As for Torres and Gerard, they will stay.  Neither had a good enough World Cup to really tempt anyone.  Sure enough Nando could be a first time WC winner but he has done feck all to get spain there.  Now if he scored the winner in the final all bets on him staying would be off!

Torres? Are you for real? He's came into the World Cup off the back of an operation on his knee... As much as a good world cup does not a good player make (Diouf), neither does a bad one....
He'll still be hot propery come August, a goal in the final or fluff an absolute sitter, his reputation is well made!

Kuyt was bought as a striker, play him there! The man has a knack of scoring important goals, he got huge stick when he went out to the right for being a workhorse and a limited footballer but was always good for a goal. His compatriot, Van Nistelroy was never a man to make the football connoisseurs happy but knew where the net was. Kuyt and Torres would do well up front, right midfield is where the hole is.

I agree with the last poster, we had a wee jack russell bitch for almost 12 years til the brother landed home with a Rottweiler pup. The wee girl just wasn't fit for him, the pup was, and still is a fantastic dog but just too energetic. He was only meant to stay temporaraily til the brother got the house sorted but that hasn't happened. We've since taken another pup from a pound and she's doing great with the Rotty who's now 18 months old and like a donkey. I'm sure sometimes it works but I'd be careful of an old dog and a pup together, I suppose it's about just looking at what you're dealing with at the time.

I had thought about that NBTD, I asked it STA travel about it when I was paying off the ticket, the girl siad she didn't know about the second part as they only dealt with getting you out there in the first place.

Looks like it's sponsorship or bust then if I fancy more than a year!

Thanks for the head's up!

I'm heading out with a friend in October, flying into Sydney and just going to see how we fare. We've got plenty of mates there already as well as in other cities like Brisbane and Melbourne so it'll be great to catch up again.  We're both out on the WHV, I just got it before I got too old!  ;D

I've 3 years experience as a social worker and would like to do something in that field or youth justice, if any posters are in Oz and know of any info that might help me out I'd be grateful! Hopefully that would be an avenue to get sponsorship through. Saying that, I'll not give a toss if I have to pick strawberries or dig holes for a while in order to keep the beer tokens coming in and get the 2nd part of the visa!!

Peter Rodgers has been having back problems for quite a while now, between that and the beer, he hasn't kicked ball in years.

Big Jim threw the head up cos he was looking more money, the hoor was already getting a fortune! He also wasn't pleased when he made the schoolboy error of giving out a pile of his props for a conga line out the back door of the shaws, round half of Fitzroy and back in the front door and getting very little of them back!!  :D

The owner turned his eye to other things when he got involved with the Holiday Inn down the road and bought into that franchise with Days on the Sandy Row and the Ramada out at Shaws Bridge.  He had to maintain standards in those hotels in line with what was laid down, Renshaws was his first hotel and his own, so when the others took off he didn't really focus on it so much. When Renshaws was making money, he was happy but when the profits went down with the 3 for 5er he just llet it run itself into the ground. God knows how this new place will fair but there was a surprisingly high occupany level in the hotel side of the Shaws!

Unfortunately it will never return to it's former term time 'glory'!! The mucksavii may be content with the Hat for now, unless they invade the Menagerie, I think it might be opening again, saw life round it last week! That was some spot!!

My Ma used to buckle up laughing all the time and tell me about one of the oul boys in the local singing along to the band, they were playing some song which had a line in it which went along the lines of "memoeries of when we caressed", his rendition of it was about "memories of eucharist"!!  :D

I was just going to mention Inside I'm Dancing, just because I noticed it hadn't been brought up and alot of my mates enjoyed it and told me to watch it. Personally it wasn't for me but then there's been no great praise for Angela's Ashes on here and I thought it was very good.

Whilst being far from the best, Mickey Bo and Me was enjoyable enough, I don't think it's been mentioned yet?
