I don't think he will go in January. It's not like Barca need him right now. They are 6 points clear in La Liga and 11 ahead of Real.
Plus he would be cup tied for the Champions League if he were to go.
He will go in the summer though I'd expect.

I would have thought the same

I think its more likely he will go in the summer but you never know. There have been a few articles in the Spanish press about a January bid. If it drags on to the summer hopefully it will happen pre the world cup so any replacement can be identified in good time. With 100+ million in the kitty we might be lucky enough to pick up the likes of a Diouf and Diao at this world cup....

:) :)

I wouldn't expect him to go in January. I don't think the club would have gone through the hassle in the summer if they were going to let him go in January, especially now that they've qualified for the knockout stage.  I hope he's sold in June if he's going, as you said.

I was happy for McLean to win, even though I would have thought Katie was more deserving. However James McLean wears his heart on his sleeve on and off the field, and has never backed off his convictions. I think he's a sound lad, and the sort of fella that you'd like to have a few pints with. He does some daft things when discretion would be the better part of valour, but he does it with absolute belief in his stances. Probably the 'wrong' result, but I'm happy he won.

The bigger travesty is how the 'rapper' and his cohorts won the Team of the Year.

Very disappointed for Gerry Grehan of Lomans. His father won a Leinster Club with Ferbane back in 1986, and Gerry transferred to Lomans a few years ago. It would have been a fairly unique achievement, I'd have thought, for father and son to win provincial medals for two different clubs.

Great character by Moorefield of course. Well done to them.

Packers got a chance?

Nah, Panthers Vikes & Lions to finish. Doubt they win all 3, especially when you look at the fact the Browns should have beaten them

Rodgers will be a big boost, but will he survive the first sack?

There has been a lot of debate in Tyrone as to whether we will remain with club competitions at u12 u14 u16 and u18 or whether these will change to u11 u13 u15 and u17. What is happening in other counties around the country

It was decided to change to u14 half. U16 half, u18 half in Tyrone. Ulster council knocked it on the head
Is this a new debate

we broke the rule book, no one on our county board knew that the rules book states at a kid has to be 18 after the 1st Jan.

Seriously?

Can't see the jags. Cardinals beat them a couple of weeks ago. I think that afc south is overrated.  As I said Pitt burgh or new England for me but chargers and ravens as outside bets.

It'd be a home game for the other team :)  They are masters of impoding alright, but they have a lot of the parts. If Rivers stays hot he's very good. They have a legitimate receiver, and possibly a decent backup cast, They have a good  running back and scat back. They have a good D line. They have a good Tight End. They have a lot of the elements you need. But it's hard to see them going toe to toe with a really good team and winning.

They are now 7-6 after starting 0-4, so that's good form. Their last 3 games are @Chiefs, @Jets and v Raiders. They have it all in front of them. If they win out, they'll be 10-6 and they'll be dangerous. However when they lose to the Chiefs and away to the Jets, the last game will be moot :)

AFC is pretty awful. This is a poor Patriots team who have Tom Brady and Gronk. I think the Chargers are the best team in the AFC to be honest.

If the Chargers don't implode, they might be very dangerous. Their problem will be because of the 0-4 start, they are bound to have to go on the road to take on New England or Pittsburgh if they get that far. San Diego/Los Angeles in January is a lot different to Foxborough or Pittsburgh.

The Pats have lost 4 of their last 5 in Miami now, or something like that. Very un Patriots like really. If the Steelers can beat them next weekend, you'd think the PAts will struggle to get to the Superbowl.

I think Henderson is a decent honest footballer, but Keita arrives and his number is up. Not sure Can is any different, stronger  but slower than JH. Henderson didn't have anything to offer to break down the massed defence. Salahs goal was excellent and created from nothing, he never actually looks at goal between getting the ball and shooting. That individual ability to break a defence is required at this level. Mane had a stinker.
Lovren is too prone to mistakes, as is mignolet, both surely on borrowed time. Klavan is a stop gap who did well yesterday. Robertson did well given lack of game time, Joe G is flying.

I'd rather Schmeichal than Van Dyke in January window. Also not clear to me what Liverpool would want with another winger.
Henderson's shot at the end is typical of his shortcomings. Poor composure and poor technique.

Henderson's biggest failing is he is not Stevie G. I don't mind him at all. You need creativity around him, but he's serviceable.

I thought Seanie was going a bit OTT on Mourinho, at the end of the day they are in second place, in the last 16 of Europe, and won two trophies last year including a European trophy. I'd love that at Liverpool, put it like that.

However yesterday I thought United were afraid of City. I've not seen that in a long time, since Moyes certainly. And never with Ferguson. They looked way more dangerous when they went behind both times, which to me indicates that the game plan was needlessly conservative.

And then to read the nonsense afterwards in the City dressing room. That's mental stuff.


Ye have the opposite problem at Liverpool - a manager who doesn't seem to interested in setting up or organising a defence. But by God does he let his attackers go out and express themselves.

Mourinho was a bad fit for United. Never should have been let in the gate. I just hope when he decides to walk out that the bungling board can find a far more suitable replacement with the character and bravery to manage this club. He was put in as a quick fix and rarely do quick fixes work. This will not work.

Exactly. If you combined Klopp and Mourinho, you'd have a hell of a manager!

It's his positional sense. He's like a Jack Russell chasing 3 tennis balls at the same time.

"I would expect Klopp to be telling people to keep their f**king hands off opposition backs in the area now."
Correct - should be obvious to any defender, at any level.
If it was the other way round I'd be giving off saying it's soft but I'd also be more annoyed about the stupidity of the defender in that situation, 100%.

That's true. Sometimes I can't believe how brainless some lads are. Lucas was a prime example, but Moreno and Lovren are as bad. Even Henderson against Brighton, like WTF are you thinking? That's not talent, or effort, or systems, that's just pure unadulterated stupidity.
