Dont create anywhere near enough chances, add that to a striker like lukaku who isnt really up to the task. Not clinical enough, not in the same class as a van nistlerooy van persie or even andy cole. Sanchez has been poor and not worth the starting place at the moment. Wolves deserved their pt if not more . How many games does de gea need to make top notch saves to get utd a result. Every single game.

RVN got at least a dozen opportunities laid on for him every game with Giigs and Beckham firing them in from wide.  Lukaku gets 3-4 a game a game mostly from deep.   No comparison.

Lukaku = The Belgian Cascarino
A very average player.

I doubt if anyone at Cascarino's level would get anywhere near the current Belgium team!  ::)

3 late Cork goals that day made it worse than it was. Not that Mayo we're great like.

Jacko was Mayo manager that year if I recall.

Who was the Coalisland Maor Foirne? An absolute p***k.
This guy. I dont know what hes talking about? You would have to act the candyman with the way hurson reffed it.

GAA needs to look at second half injury time rules.

9 minutes 30 seconds played in the second half wind assisted. With 0 real stoppages.

1 minute played in the 1st when dromore against the wind and ward taking somewhere between 40-50 seconds a kick out + oneills injury.

Simple rule change. 2nd half substitution are 15 seconds for injury instead of the 30 theyre adding.

Considering teams sub at the same time.

Why would there be different rules for each half?

Hurson added on more time because Coalisland kept kicking the ball away for frees and kickouts once they went ahead.

Superb Fianna tactic in recent years this.

Lads we went in front with a minute to go in injury time and he gave them an extra 2 minutes to bring the half time to 39 minutes.  Did the fianna lads kick the ball away for a full minute?

Personally I had no ties to the game yesturday, didn't bother me Coalisland doing that but I've seen them at it before - then again, I was also surprised they even allowed the ball to be worked down for McMenamin miss firstly, then Ruiri Sluddens after - I had expected a hauling and pulling match before Dromore got to the scoring zone.

Anyone standing out in the champ games so far for possible McKenna cup run?
Liam Rafferty (Galbally) was brilliant against Pomeroy.
Ive always been impressed with him any time i have seen him.
Would be worth a run in the McKenna cup anyway

Totally agree regards disgraceful scenes after the screen match and no officials should have to put up with it.

Though what I will disagree with is ones on here saying that Damien Harkin is a good referee.  Time and time again he has affected the outcomes of big games with his decisions, which were later proven to be wrong with evidence and on occasions the CB having to throw them out. 

A good referee should be seen and not heard.  With Damien he seems to enjoy being the center of attention no matter if its right or wrong.

Smart-stb also works on LG TVs

I have the SIPTV app. Is that one much better?

I used siptv happily til recently when it stopped loading stuff into categories and I switched to smart-stb. I'd not bother change unless you had to, I was just throwing it up as alternative should siptv stop working. There is a $20 dollar lifetime fee for smart-stb and you will need to provide your MAC address to your provider.

Cheers for the info.

Kavanaugh is an extremist anyway. If Roe v Wade goes the GOP will lose a lot of female voters on top of all the blue collar folks it is shafting.

When he was forst nominated I heard several people say hed have a hard time getting through

There were plenty of other people he could have nominated

Roe is going down no matter who they put forward.

And there will be a backlash to THAT in years to come.


So whoever Trump puts forward will be unacceptable......thats the type of attitude that has us in this place to begin with

Wasn't airing an attitude, just making a prediction! Do you see it differently?

Roe is overturned, half the states ban abortion, throw in all the over stuff that will follow Kavanaugh's appointment - environmental protections, worker protections, consumer protections, racial/minority issues etc.

Suddenly the left becomes awakened to what the Supreme Court (and lower courts) means in US society and why it has been such a major plank of the conservative movement for the past 40 years.

Edit: I would add, on the no one being acceptable bit, that Trump is putting up judges chosen by the Federalist Society. There are no moderates, in terms of judicial and political philosophy, on that list. Obama nominated Garland, way more moderate than Sotameyer, for example,  in an attempt to meet the GOP at least a little bit of the way given their preemptive announcement that there would be no consideration given to him anyway. Trump would never countenance that, nor would he be allowed to. And that's fine. His and his administration's and party's choice. But you can't expect the Dems and left to just roll over and not react to what these nominees mean, especially once their rulings start to take effect.


Republicans stole a seat from Obama and now the Democrats are attempting to steal a seat from Trump.  The whole thing is a fvckin debacle

I love the way Republicans painted Garland as an extremist and yet, his and Kavanaughs voting records are almost identical

I love the way Democrats paint Kavanaugh as an extremist and yet, his and Garlands voting records are almost identical

All Democrats I know absolutely believe all of the allegations against Kavanaugh.

All Republicans I know absolutely believe the allegations against Kavanaugh are a dirty trick
