Fergal talking you through it..

In summary HQ want the U19 grade and if you don't accept what they want any lad aged 18 won't be able to play senior club football.

Exactly it.

And many rural clubs will go to the wall/find it very difficult to field if this rule comes in

There is no ideal age groups - odd or even.

You will always have players who have a 'good' or 'bad' birthday.

17 is probably the correct age for the majority to start with the seniors.

From my reading if the age group is to be changed to 18 and players cant then play seniors until after that age then a lot of smaller clubs are absolutely stuffed with regards to player numbers.

Option 1 meaning anyone playing under 18 cant play senior?

That would be the death kneel for a lot of clubs.

This is playing to the big clubs and saying tough shit to a huge number of clubs

No doubt we are all getting screwed - but if you work you have a (slightly?) better chance of getting through this shit show.

Those that decide they want to lie on their arse - feck em

This is a cost of living thread so my comments are directed at people who will struggle with the cost of living but refuse to work.

No idea what the daily mail comments are about.

The UK government are a shower of robbing tramps - jail would be too good for many of them fuc*s. But I am sure there is a thread about how they lined their own pockets and that of their cohorts over the years.

I am allowed to call out lazy bastids at the same time - and that is what they are - lazy bastids who deserve zero sympathy or assistance

"We need to encourage people to join the labour market. We will make work pay by reducing people's benefits if they don't fulfil their job search ...we'll ask 120k more people on Universal Credit to take active steps to seek...work or...have their benefits reduced"

It must be lost on him that a lot of people on Universal Credit are already working but the pay is that shít they still need UC to survive..

We are indeed part of a high risk right wing social experiment that will cost poor people their lives this winter...
I’m all for cutting benefits to people who refuse to work, but the money they’re milking from the system is peanuts compared to what Johnson siphoned off to his cronies over covid or what energy companies are fleecing us for. Genuinely feel sorry for people that are working full time in some shitty job for peanuts and having to chose between food and heat.

It's the In work poverty. Families both with jobs, paying childcare and with rising energy costs are seeing disposable incomes squeezed. That's were the poverty is. Unemployed will notice no difference. They never had money and never worked. The state always provided. It those who are trying but can't make ends meet who need the help.

And that is the real problem here.
Busting your ballix all week and still cant eat & heat.

Those that choose not to work - zero sympathy

Yes o have sympathy for everyone  here . Those working and those not. It’s criminal the cost of heating , fuel  etc.

But those not  working , you  have to ask if it is  worthwhile  a person /couple doing a weeks work and being  worse off, Or maybe 30-40 quid  better off.? Is it worth it for that  much gain? You’d  have to say  no . It’s not just that everyone not working are lazy hoors

I have zero sympathy for those that can work but choose not to work.
Choose being the key word here.

If they are struggling this winter why should they get assistance or indeed sympathy?

MacKenna says it’s only a small win so that’s clearly all it is!
It's amazing the way he has systematically adopted a contrarian position on every topic ever and yet try to maintain its a genuinely held belief. Wonder what his next long term genuinely held belief will be? Doubt he knows.

It is some craic when Covid is brought up - he was yapping about Cheltenham being on when Covid first broke and how it was going to kill so many people and should have been cancelled/lockdown.
Then he changed tack completely and now saying he was against lockdowns form the beginning.

SSE up by 34% in October - thats another increase to the one released a couple of weeks ago I think.

Is it price gouging, do they think people will be more conservative with using electric, gas and other energy items and they will be losing out in the long run?

Like who is getting paid that much extra to cover the increase of food and energy, plus all the other increases?

It isnt these companies - it is the ones supplying it I believe.

Bunch of robbing bast4rds either way

'A' league teams finalized and draft tentatively set for 7pm on Wednesday evening.

The first game is on Thursday evening (US time) so we will need to have the B draft by then
Any complaints for 8.30 Wednesday evening for the 'B'?

All good
