Haven't watched any Patrick Kielty's late late shows thus far however of the Tubridy shows I watched the strong themes was talking to someone that's about to die or knew someone that died tragically and if that person has brought out a book about it all the better. 
The Rob Delaney interview was exactly that, but it was very compelling and genuine. Powerful.

Mick Lynch threw the audience there when he praised the English for being tolerant.  Awkward silence lol.  An interesting guy to listen to.

Any inklings on oil prices, need a fill, is it as cheap now as it will be, id assume it'll only go higher as we head towards the winter?
I'm not sure what the outlook is but unfortunately a barrel of oil is up 30% since June and a thousand litres is up well over £200 in the same period.

I See on the county website there's fixtures down for u19 Championship tomorrow night, will these go ahead?

Did the u-19 league proceed...
Cargin played one game therein and never experienced another game.....
So hugely doubtful.....
Too little too late for the lads aged 18 who missed a year at minor this year.  Most of them left twiddling their thumbs and slipping away from football.  A horrendous decision by the county to switch to U17.
How the Jaysus did we beat Scotland 3-0 a year ago? They were booed off the pitch.

You have to laugh at people like Trevor Clarke, do literally nothing for months and months, and then out on the tv making big statements.  A complete amateur chancer acting the big man overseeing people in professional life.  And no better on any side. Complete bunch of bluffers.

Cargin minors playing at 12 also
Not giving anyone a chance to get to both games without a panic
Dunsilly should be used for all senior QFs bar the Rossa st Brigids game

Anticipated such.......but hey such decision will probably provoke a positive response....
Minor game at 12 and Senior game at 1.30? That would be ridiculous, and from a road safety point of view pretty irresponsible.  Surely an easy one to sort.

Just a personal opinion but I prefer Dunsilly to Corrigan - better atmosphere, better view.  Something doesn't work at Corrigan the way they split the two terraces with the stand in the middle, plus the big black hole behind the bottom goal. That's no offence to the St John's volunteers who always do a great job.  Always liked Glenavy as well but it seems to have fallen away for whatever reason.

biggest threat to the bio-diversity of the Lough is sand dredging. The volume of famous Lough Neagh midges which feed so many fish and birds has dwindled to nothing.
Zebra mussel major problem.

Meant to ask this myself, I heard aghagallon had more suspended than St Brigids but the details are few and far between

Heard there was only 1 from each team reported and suspended. Bit mad considering every player and both managements were said to be involved

Not sure if mobile phone evidence is used so ref's report will be what they work from unless there was an official approved recording, I could be wrong though

Yes, you're most likely right. Hard for any ref to report accurately (without a video) when all players are at it. Clubs should be fined if ref reports full scale row involving everyone.
I never saw a row yet that involved everyone.  There's always plenty trying to break it up, and plenty more running around not sure what they're doing.

Needs to go.  Every show and presenter has a cycle, and he's had 20 years.  Just the same old repetitive shite with a platform for extremists and mindless morons who contribute nothing.  Can't see anything positive he's adding to this place.  His tv show is cringeworthy.  Wonder what people from outside of here would make of it.
I must admit I do listen to the radio show every now again if he's putting his finger on some bullshit inefficiency in government which we are masters at. But the tv show is literally the pits - wouldn't watch ten seconds of it.

Have you any thoughts on why the city teams in particular seem to be struggling at underage? What has changed in the city that doesn't apply to the country boys?

Said this on here a few times, don't think too many agree but i believe schools have a massive part to play, Antrim the only county in Ulster not represented at macrory level. Look at the clubs performing well over recent years ourselves creggan and aghagllon all tend to send their children to schools outside of Antrim and competing at high level in schools football.
Jaysus don't be me mentioning schools on here.  You'll get ate.

Sam McBride won't be happy. He's a regular side kick to Nolan but has a reputation as a proper investigative journalist. Wonder will he pull back a bit.

Results from this weekend would suggest the senior Champ is wide open. Would that be the case or am I reading it wrong?
Creggan Rossa and LD can't be ruled out. Lavey in the mix too. Cargin still front runners? PG1 lose a game or two every year but will still be in the shake up. Wide open lads.
Wide open for second, but Cargin are too good for everyone else.
