Where on twitter?

People who punch should get a year ban, simple as that.  Cowardly act as nobody is really expecting a punch on the pitch.  I have been hit from behind a few times myself, but throughout my whole playing career never swung a punch at anybody.

Have had the odd dirty Joe back in the day! side of the head punch, course both get sent off, all I was doing was defending myself!! Referees eh!! See nauthin

Any hurlers from pg1 play for Ahoghill, in round toome creggan.

We did have a few play for us but not too many. James Laverty was a good we hurler, and played on the team that won the NA indoor league - Div , always wore his Cargin shorts and socks  ;D

Ciaran O'Neill played for a couple of seasons,

Ciaran was a decent hurler from memory

Interesting to read this  from 13 years ago now.
Surely there can be no debate
Breaffy?
Celbridge?
Kilcar?
Ballymun Kickhams?

Thurles Sarsfield's surely must be up there with the talent they have

How has ole not walked after that performance and result ? He is ruining his reputation big time.

You can't hid from the results, forgetting yesterdays result, the rest (this season) hasn't been up to much, there's a nice foundation there, they just need someone to build it better. Ole was a decent gap filler and taking Utd to second place (albeit a 1,000 points behind City) was his best success as a manager in England.

OGS is the baby faced assassin. He can not fail. What is Conte going to do for you? Things are much better than they were under Mourinho. Liverpool beat Watford 5-0 a week ago and Watford beat Everton 5-2 yesterday. This means United will score 5 in their next game.

Granted he won the CL, multiple titles in a great team but heís managed Utd 3 seasons without any trophies, you donít win a trophy for coming second or top four. If Utd keep him after that display and even the midweek display it shows that Utd board ainít bothered.

Chelsea City and Liverpool will have a gap of 25 points minimum to fourth spot

I didnít see the first but for the second it was a blatant red and was shocking discipline. Could have wrecked the kilmallock guy who will be sore for a few days.

The first red was in the same tackle when he blattered him running in on goal, pure dirt

Alex Ferguson regularly suffered October humilations as Manchester United manager.

A 5-0 humiliation by Newcastle, a 5-0 humiliation by Chelsea, a 6-3 thrashing by Southampton, a 6-1 defenestration by Manchester City.

It was never remotely mentioned then that the manager was in line for the sack.

Should be the same now.

Ferguson won multiple titles and CLÖ Jesus lad, your brain is mush

He's taking the piss. Very, very, very obviously.

That posting boom over the last 18 months hasn't done much for your own mushy brain.

Anyone else Iíd say he was taking piss but Iím not sure with this one. Whereas Iíve talked shite for years

I don't think there is much to argue about.
Vaccines appear to lowering severity of symptoms but they are nowhere near as effective for prolonged periods as we had hoped.
What lies ahead we don't know. Preferably a better more effective vaccine as I think there is the real danger of drop off in booster uptake
They absolutely lower it. Thereís no appear or discussion on it. Do they require a booster/ top up? Looking that way. Is this an issue? No. Will vaccine efficiently improve with new versions, most likely. Complaining that it doesnít do enough when thereís  no alternative is nonsense.

There are alternatives. They just tell us there isnít.
Give us a run down there.
how many shots are you ok with taking?
Whatever the experts tell you ?

Flu jab every year and not a dickey bird, Covid vaccine, all hell breaks loose!!
do you need a flu shot passport to have a pint ?
Flu shot works about 50%

So itís just for getting a pint? Ok!!

50% for the success of a jab is better than none I suppose

Lynch or Gillane barely in this at all.

The first was a red, the second was another red, the ref gave him a second yellow!! Wtf

Great result and one that will hopefully and respectfully show Ole the door. You canít assemble a team like that and manage it into the ground

The simple points are this, other than expenses managers are not supposed to be paid. The reality is a lot different, and thatís been happening going back as far as I can remember. So itís not a new phenomenon.

Iíve been in those agmís over the years were no one puts their hand up or shows any interest.

Iíve also been part of teams who prefer outside managers because they feel itís an equal playing field

Ive also been ask to step in and take teams temporarily as they canít find anyone, very difficult to say no, and it usually lasts a season!!

Personally Iíve no problems with outside managers who are paid expenses but not stupid money thatís going around or any money coming from inside the club.

The GAA should come out and have a proper discussion about this and stop brushing this topic under the carpet.

As for medical staff, unless you have a clubman/woman whose trained and willing to do that then itís a care of duty to bring someone in, paying them is ok

Iíve been asked to take outside teams in the past, I wouldnít take anything other than mileage. Thatís just me, Iím sure some of the figures banded about are probably vastly exaggerated tbf
