He was everything I thought I should have hated as he was an English, cocky, arrogant b**tard yet he was sublime, a character and an iconic figure in a game of precision I admired, RIP Eric, you are a darting legend, second only to the power and a thousand times more likeable, that said you defined your sport and made it what is is today.

A lot of Democrats think these mid terms are going to be a cake walk. I think they are going to get their asses handed to them in a lot of places that they aren't expecting. No voter reach out, and no leadership. Not exactly what works in middle America...

Not sure how it is going to play out.  Kudlow is a free trade guy and is on the record as saying we will figure this out. I have met Kudlow numerous time through work and he is a very reasonable measured and pragmatic individual.

The democrats need to come back to the centre, if they do and  they rid themselves of the old guard I think the republicans are in for a hammering, they have no time for Trump and they have no one who is going to challenge him and beat him next time around.

Absolutely shocking and disgraceful scenes but as a City supporter to see people blame LFC is pure bullshit.

If something happened inside the ground by all means nail them but to blame them for bottles thrown outside smacks of other clubs supporters handwringing and looking any reason to jump on them

Liverpool fans have nothing to do with this, Liverpool fans dont do this sort of shite, scum do this sort of shite.

City played like they were rattled, that, coupled with the weight of expectation and no pedigree on this stage made for a long night for them, I see them winning the second leg 3-1, failure to score at Anfield will be their death knell, they didnt even really try to score in the last twenty minutes, Klopp drestroyed the great Pep on the line.

I have never witnessed a referee change their mind after being challenged over a decision by a player.
All I have witnessed is a referee moving a free forward and then, as what happened yesterday, giving the
opposition team some soft frees.
I am not sure why players bother with it.

I would agree that Fermanagh commit abit more in the attacking side of the game.
They have a set of forwards who can do damage.
But then a reliable left footed free taker yesterday and we would probably have won so it might not be pretty
but it is effective.

You were never going to win that game yesterday, that was obvious from early on, we are better than you lot by three or so points, if you had upped your game we would have too I believe, the right team won the division and the right team went up with them. The proof of the pudding is in the eating they say, we shall see come Championship time.

I see the sc**bag has tried to implement his transgender military ban again .... at 930pm on a Friday night.


The Democrats have pulled that late night shite plenty of times too Gab, dont play that card ffs!

The man is a politician, what more would you expect? He is simply trying to do what he thinks is best for the American fighting men and women, no more no less.
He is not a politician

He bloody well is, he has been in office as POTUS for over a year, he is a politician.

The President is doing what he thinks is best for the morale of his fighting men and women, no more and no less.

I myself think only men or women should be allowed in the  American military, after all two genders was good enough for the world until Obama came into power, he has fucked the whole thing up.

Homosexuals should be allowed into the military and thats about it for me.

Strange one this I thought all you United lads would be singing from the same hymn sheet  :o :o :o :o

If you're referring to de Gea, he's a bread and butter keeper.

A few decent stops masks a lot of his poor positioning, narrowing the angles, spreading himself, dominance in the box, fielding ability etc.

I heard recently people describing him as Uniteds best ever. Better than Schmeichel or Van Der Sar? Me hole. He's absolutely nowhere near their standards.

I hope you are taking the piss on this thread, if not you dont know enough to know nothing.

That was a terrible game of football today between Fermanagh and Armagh, in bitterly cold windy conditions, on a heavy pitch, that contributed to the poor show. While I'm delighted that Armagh have achieved promotion, I wasn't pleased with how they played. Fermanagh bought a great amount of intensity to the game in the first half and really suffocated Armagh. Their tackling and turnovers were excellent. They got some good scores from play and Armagh indiscipline handed them a number of simple frees. The youth, inexperience and lack of quality the deeper we've had to go into our panel showed in the first half.

Second half we played a lot better, won a lot of ball in the middle, tightened up defensively and looked more threatening going forward. But like the first half our shot execution and free taking was abysmal. Fermanagh didn't seem to be able to bring the same level of intensity to the game in the second half. I didn't see what the first red card was for, but the ref was right in front of it over on the other side of the field. The second player could have no complaints about his second yellow either. I didn't see what Forker did, only the aftermath. He does have form and for years has been doing stupid macho things, which gets him and the team in trouble. His discipline has really improved this season but I wouldn't be surprised if he did something he shouldn't have. One player for me who definitely should have walked was Niall Grimley. He swung at elbow at Seamus Quigley and while it didn't connect and Quigley faked injury, the intent was there and should have been a red.

Today's performance will stand to some of the younger, less experienced members of the team, while others didn't really take their chance, in what were in fairness tough conditions. Playing Fermanagh in the League final as another warm up to the Championship clash could see the animosity that clearly exists between the teams go up another level.

We are better than Fermanagh, we are promoted and I think we will be a solid division 2 team the first year and hopefully we will kick on in year two and push for promotion.

I think we will be fine against Fermanagh in the Championship but I have been known to be wrong before, Down for example last year.

Seanie and I have been trying to tell you lot for ages the manager is shite, a shadow of his former self, I could not believe his selections, and at the presser afterwards he was so full of shit it was not even funny.

This man needs to go before he ruins Rashford, Martial and Lingard, he is mediocre with a sprinkling of inspired now and again, that is not enough, not at Man Utd.

Class and Dignity FC

everytime

He is not a Liverpool employee anymore, this incident has as much to do with Liverpool Fc as it does with a pair of track suit bottoms.

Repugnant act, first time he has done it, suspension, fine, apology move on, if it happens again lifetime ban. simples.

Sounded like a great second half shamrock.  Wide open, the goals killed us.  Probably a fair result in the end.  Our backs need to tighten it up a bit.  Sligo showed a lot of resolve and are on the up in my opinion.

Hopefully Sligo are on the rise, Longford are no mugs, we caught ye early, I hope Sligo stay up.
