Just to re iterate.Winning the treble and remaining unbeaten domestically is a flawless achievement.But is this really worth over praising given that the manager is on £45k weekly and has a vastly superior player budget,infrastructure,fan base,tradition,billionaire owner etc than all of the domestic rivals?

A circumspect analysis of the season reveals that the domestic success starkly contrasts with the huge failure in Europe,which saw our worst ever defeat margin and arguably our most embarrassing defeat to a part time team.

An objective analysis therefore reveals that the easy things were done flawlessly but the real challenges were failed miserably,and this is where vast improvement is needed.

You complain about the game but happy that they won and Aberdeen scored!! Then complain that a manager who you've taken selfies with and praised on the night is getting paid too much!!! You are a clown, not an ordinary clown but a proper coco the clown

The attention you seek must be related back to a day when you never got in your childhood, your family obviously starved you of any

once they widen the road to Toome it will be easier to get to than Casement

Anyone watching The Trial: A Murder in the Family one Channel 4 with a real jury assessing a fictious murder with a real judge and QCs conducting the prosecution and defence?  Started on Sunday night.

 Brilliant! Finale on now

Brendan that's positive stuff...plenty coverage of it and well done to all who attended and dug deep into their pockets.

Re: The greatest ever comeback.

Taking your Liverpool or Utd hat off, which was better; Utd scoring 2 in the dying minutes against a great german side after being outplayed for most of the 90 mins or Liverpool scoring 3 in a half to come from absolutely nowhere to force extra time against a Milan team known for it's defensive prowess?

We can agree that both were amazing but which shades it for you?

Liverpool  ;D

In all seriousness I'm not sure I would describe that Bayern Munich team as great. They had some excellent players - Matthaus and Effenberg for instance but they
were getting on at this stage especially in 1999. Carsten Jancker was playing up front for them!

Look at the Milan team that night:

Dida
Cafu
Jaap Stam
Alessandro Nesta
Paolo Maldini (c)
Andrea Pirlo
Gennaro Gattuso      
Clarence Seedorf      
Kaká
Andriy Shevchenko
Hernán Crespo

Pure quality in almost every position and the likes of Kaka (arguably the best player in the world at the time), Shevchenko, Pirlo and Crespo at their peak.
Even the veteran defenders in that team really weren't showing their age and won the CL a couple of years later.

Did Bayern not win the following year?

In fairness Jose got it bang on tonight. Controlled the game from start to finish. This season has got to be considered a success.

Wasn't great.... would be hoping for the defence to tighten up and Utd to improve on their attacking play, yes controlling a game is needed but winning the league would require some surgery

What age are the kids?  If you go for a pup it's worse than having a new kid. There's the hassle of toilet training, preparing secure space for him in the garden, cleaning up the poo outside, deciding where in the house he can have access to, getting up early in the morning to let him out etc.  There are also costs involved, neutering ( a must ) kennelling, grooming, etc. As regards food, go for the nuts and remember the better the food, the less cleaning up you'll have. We had a cocker and they are class, great fun but completely mad and need lots of exercise. We have a Bichon now got him when he was 15 months and still a handful. Finally Bitch is better than a dog. I know I've had cross words with you in the past, can't even remember what it was over to be honest, and nor do I care.  Good luck with the dog, whatever you decide.

I know I'll be left to do the walks cleaning and training !! Kids are 13 and 16 both girls which I hope will help! The sister in law has a Bicon she's on her second now, lovely dog...

At least I'll have someone who'll greet me when I get home from work!!

Ive a bichon. Got it and was promised by the daughter that she would help out as well... yeah that happened  ::)

Great dog though in fairness. great with the younger kids. sleeps a lot

You get it locally lurganblue? the main thing is wife is allergic to the dog hair so Bicon's Cockapoo's and the like are the best for that

I'm sure like the Dortmund lads there will be a sense of WTF!! but they are not going to get a better chance to progress, they are proffesional and should they apply themselves do enough to get over the line....

I'll be refereeing tonight so will get back for extra time and the penalties

Any dog with cocker blood in him will be fun, friendly and very energetic. I'd strongly advise you, though, to get a fully grown dog if you can, about 3 year old, rather than a pup. A pup is a torture.

I fully agree but I'm not in charge lol
