Don't think it's quite that simple Maroon Manc.....Mayo and Leitrim still in it with it being round robin.

"Our team without Lukaku, Fellaini we don't have presence". I'd be embarrassed and angry if Mourinho was manager of my club.


I am. Can't understand how any United fan wants this charade to continue. Hope he loses the dressingroom completely sooner rather than later so next season isn't a total wipeout when he's fired.

Amongst my mates and we're all mancs there's only one who wants rid of him and he didn't want him in the first place. Everyone the same as me and will wait and see what happens next season.


Tell him I'm with him! He sounds like a smart guy.  ;D

Sorry to tell you Seanie he's the one one who talks the most nonsense when it comes to football.  ;D

He did manage to get a club Wembley ticket for £90 minutes before the kick off which just shows it pays to be patient.


Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. And he's right here. There's only one way this is going and I think deep down every United fan knows it.

Questioning the commitment of players again and more bizarre comments post match. His second season everywhere else has been his best season. He has never lasted more than 3. A lot of history to be reversed if next season is to be what we all hope it will be.

The youngest person with down syndrome in Iceland is 20. Clearly they have a cultural policy to eliminate the weakest or those who do not conform to some ideal model. Shame on them, hopefully Ireland does not head the same way. What choice did these babies have or were the parents coerced into making their decision. Progressive society not. Savita Halapanavar died of sepsis not for the need of an abortion. I will be voting no, I do feel huge sympathy for couples with cases of ffa.


Can't let this go. She died of sepsis because she was denied the proper medical treatment to save her life because of concerns of her doctors over the 8th amendment. It couldn't be clearer. She wouldn't have died in most countries in the world as it wouldn't have been in question.

Cant let this go either. A huge number of prominent consultants have came out and clearly explained the doctors in this case fucked up, nothing in the 8th amendment should have caused the death of SH.


Name and quote them and please indicate the level of access and knowledge they have about this case.

The official report is above. You wish to refute it so you'll need to do better than what you've said.

Even if you're right, it shows there is at best confusion among highly paid and educated professionals about the 8th amendment which is leading to improper treatment of women.

I wouldn't expect much, Rudi appears to be quite fond of posting manufactured facts and figures without anything backing it up. Still waiting to hear about a source for the youngest person in Iceland with Down's Syndrome being 20.

I read it heard it on the six one news various sources. I don't have time to post links. More over I don't need to justify myself or any quote to you.


Of course you don't have to justify yourself to me or anyone. However, in a discussion, if you want your points to be taken seriously, especially if you're contradicting and official enquiry, I think it's reasonable to ask that you include some facts.

The French are known for leaving good players out of their tournament panels. Eric Cantona,David Ginola and Jean Pierre Papin for example.

France left Cantona out in 96 when he was the best player in the league, they'd have gone close on winning Euro 96 with the great man.

Well hopefully if Martial is still at the club come the new season he will have benefitted from the summer off and will come back with a bit of fire in him to prove them wrong. It is probably a French thing but he does seem very laid back, be interesting to see him really fired up and going at teams, he has so much potential.


I hope it doesn't convince him to leave but I worry it will. He was playing really well and then just cut adrift by the clown of a manager who bought a good but unnecessary player to try and prove a point over Pep. Anyone who says Martial is shit obviously doesn't know a thing about the game.

An interesting analogy might be that anyone who calls a successful manager like Jose, ' a clown of a manager' obviously doesn't know a thing about the game. Just an observation ;)


He knows nothing about being a Manchester United manager. In his current role, yes - he is a clown.

On occasions you do let your hatred for JM cloud your judgement


It's part of my judgement. If I'm wrong then tell me why I'm wrong.

Fergie finished 2nd in his second season in a league that was over long before the end of the season where United never challenged. We thought it was progress. McClair scored over 20 league goals....first United player to do so since George Best. Hughes was coming back from abroad. Went the whole of October and November without a win to drop to 11th where they eventually finished. The next season was worse. And that was with the greatest manager of all time.

Don't let 2nd place this season fool anyone.

What will happen in the instance that a woman presents at say 11 weeks, has the 72h waiting period and then maybe can't get a hospital apt for 2 weeks. Would the abortion be allowed or not? Or would it be prioritised by the hospital? Or sent to a private clinic?


I don't know. I'd hope if these provisions come in that there would be efficient procedures and resources to avoid this scenario. In any event I don't think the hypothetical woman in this case should be punished for a systems failure - do you? We've had enough women punished by our health system failing over the years.

I'm saying that I struggle with the notion that a foetus / child can be killed and then offered a Christian service.

I think that what Norwegian system conveys is that, to them as a society abortion is a necessary evil.  However, the doctors interviewed conveyed that it was not something they were entirely comfortable with.  The whole treatment with chaplin and acknowledgement of the baby (especially later term babies) is a reflection of the fact that this is a serious and moral matter.   It's a case that abortion is legal but not taken lightly.

/Jim.


Good points Jim. There is no perfect solution. I'm voting Yes as I believe what's on the table is the (much) lesser of two evils. I don't know anyone who is "pro-abortion"....in fact the notion is patently ridiculous. I've just listened to a "debate" on OceanFM radio where the wonderful Declan Ganley (in between waffling and ignoring every question he was asked) maintained several times it is a simple black and white choice - you're either for abortion or against it. Anyone with any level of intelligence knows it's not black and white. So the constitution is not the place to deal with the issue. Legislation is and for those who "don't trust" politicians - listen to this....The citizens assembly proposed a more liberal 22 weeks but it was the Oireachtas committee that reduced the limit to the proposed 12 weeks. And I've outlines time and again here why that's a common sense approach to deal with the realities of what's happening today.

Crikey, don't recall hearing too much about him previously.

Is it harsh to suggest he hasn't a clue what he's on about when it comes to footballing matters?

He was fitness coach under Horan.

I wouldn't pay too much attention to any fella with a PhD that insists on being referred to as 'Dr'.


WTF?

It was put up by men and there were women there as well, he said, making  tea and sandwiches.

I think it perfectly encapsulates the no side’s attitudes that they didn’t even let women build the monstrosity. Landmarks shouldn’t be politicised like this, commonage or not. The law needs to change to prevent this in future.

Do you not think the part about making tea and sandwiches was tongue in cheek. How the fvck would you boil a kettle half way up a mountain?


Believe me. It wasn't tongue in cheek.

Anywhere I can read these theories online or is it just word of mouth stuff?  Never heard that said before so would be interested.


Honestly I hadn't heard that either. About Omagh or Enniskillen.
