Still, considering the scratch team MU had out, it was some result. It could also be a bad one though, as it may actually make top-4 qualification a bit harder, if they now divide their concentration between the league, cup and CL. A result that surely guarantees the OGS will be in charge next season, which means that inside 24 months, MU fans will be wondering who the next manager is going to be.

As I pointed out after the PSG result.

Who knows, OGS may actually yet turn out to be the right man for the job. However, giving it to him on the (emotional) basis of a wretched VAR peno decision in Paris was never going to turn out good. He has shown no form for managing at the top level.
Tactics wise he reminds me of Anthony Cunningham

2 losses in 4 days . 54 shots and 1 goal.

And 70% possession in both games.  Making tonnes of chances but not taking them.  Same against Sheffield Wednesday, but got a goal.  They are extremely vulnerable when they lose possession - a Bielsa trademark.  I have officially given up at this stage.   :(

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/04/22/brentford-vs-leeds-championship-live-score-goal-updates

"Now, barring a mathematical miracle in Leeds’ favour, Sheffield United only have to beat relegated Ipswich at Bramall Lane on Saturday evening to return to the Premier League. That would consign Leeds to the play-offs, which have not been kind to them. They have failed to advance through the end-of-season lottery in four attempts and Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa warned that his team must overcome their wastefulness in front of goal to progress.
“This is the summary of our season, many chances to score compared to the goals we actually score,” he said. “If we had normal efficiency we would have 10 or 12 points more. That is not the case so we have to put all our energy in the option we still have."

Derby in the playoff semis per the Telegraph

Born or Bristol are still in with a shout. It would be mad to think that Derby or the likes could end up 14-15 points behind Leeds and beat them in the playoffs and get promoted....though I have to say I’d like to see Derby go up as Harry Wilson has had a good season for them and I’d like to see him loaned to them again next year if they go up
Very disappointing for Leeds though to be in the automatic places for over 30 weeks and to lapse right at the end

Was the board offline for the last day or so? Tried on multiple devices, home, public, corporate networks etc.
I had no luck either

Daily Telegraph

“If United lose again to Manchester City on Wednesday night, it will be Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s seventh defeat in a little over six weeks.
Their current run of six defeats in eight is already their worst run of form since 1989. Five successive away defeats is their worst run of away form for 38 years. They have gone 11 matches without a clean sheet – the longest such run since 1998 – and Theo Walcott’s goal was the 48th they had conceded this year in the league, making it their worst defensive performance since the foundation of the Premier League in 1992.”

Most people don’t vote for or against austerity though in ni seafoid. You are trying to apply economics to an electorate who don’t necessarily take into account economics when they vote. Maybe 32 county wide but certainly not 6 county wide.

Cuts drive people mad, Itchy. So does the absence of payrises coupled with inflation .
It is the same everywhere.
Political parties fail when voters perceive them to be impotent. Ask FF

Sinn fein running around in big cars whilst they push welfare reforms through.
Going to get hit at ballot box in Derry

Sinn Féin have little choice but to reform welfare as that is the amount of money they have. The question should be, have they a plan to improve the economy to get people off welfare?

Why be pedantic. They are against rights for gay people. Call it what you will.

The oldest trick in the book to prevent debate. Come up with an all-encompassing label and if anyone disputes this call them pedantic. Hence if you oppose the Israeli government you are "anti-semitic", if you oppose Brexit you are "anti-British" etc.

Being in Government now is suboptimal. It’s Berlin or London’s way or it's the Shinners’ way.
The Met Police in London had £850m of austerity cuts. The neoliberals even do it to law and order.
Sinn Féin will put the lotion on its skin unless it wants the hose again.

Any party that sees being in government during difficult times as suboptimal is not worth voting for. It’s the antithesis of public service and leadership. It self serving cowardice

More nonsense. To be in government in the north needs both parties able to compromise. It's 100% clear that DUP have refused to compromise so by your logic in that case SF should just abandon their position and go into government anyway. And tell me then how will their core vote feel about them then, what sort of vacuum would it create and who might exploit that vacuum. Nonsensical post.

Parties that participated in Government  have been getting wiped out over the last decade in Ireland, France, Italy,Greece and soon the U.K.Also Labour in Scotland.

SF have no answer to austerity. Nobody votes for austerity

I know some from round the “north west” feel sf sold out by signing up to the gfa. McGuinness meeting the queen would also not be welcomed by die hards. Die hard republicans wouldn’t believe in sf any more I think.

Teenagers arrested on this. They need to weed out the leaders >:( Stirring up people who don’t know any better to get involved in this shit and now someone has died plus their lives will be ruined >:(

Stuff about the South being allied with the Brits plus pointless violence reminds me of Dessie O’Hare

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-and-law/the-life-and-crimes-of-dessie-o-hare-border-fox-1.3857421?mode=amp

“The veteran journalist Diarmaid McDermott was in court that day 31 years ago as he was again last Thursday. He recalled O'Hare’s "rambling rant" from the same dock where Robert Emmet made his famous speech in 1803.
Pronouncing the name of the "Irish Revolutionary Brigade" O'Hare called for "republicans" to turn their guns on Irish judges, prison officers, members of the Defence Forces and gardaí. 
He attacked the leadership of the Provisional IRA accusing them of being "quasi republican". 
He ended his tirade with the words "may all my deeds reverberate until bloody war is waged against the British and their southern allies".

The economic system gives nothing to ordinary people. SF can’t do anything about it.
Violence won’t help either. We need a new system.
