DUP want 2 billion off Big T for NI. That's about 1100 each. What will you spend your share on?

They have probably told her for every billion they give her they will get 1.6 billion back.

We noticed on Sunday in the warm up how the Donegal keeper was practising punching high balls out to the corner back position and he did one of these during the match. It must be a tactic not to catch it in the box and be under pressure but to punch it clear out to the already waiting corner back.

I thought Morgan did well on Sunday with his kickouts and that punch away where he hurt himself but did he actually make it good saves? Once the ball hit off his chest which he did well to block but I wouldn't have particular said he had showed a great exhibition of goal keeping. He has matured a bit though and doesn't seem to get involved as much.

McGinley had to make a lot more saves and did so even though most were hit at him.
Beggan's free taking as improved hugely and he's a massive presence in the goals.

I watched the game again last night and I still can't decide did Tiernan mean to score his goal like that or did he miss hit it. He did well to side step the keeper and not just blast it at him like Sean and Brennan did.

Had to be a miss hit. Nobody tries to kick the ball like that!

Ronaldo has a massive ego. All he cares about is being centre of attention, banging in more goals than Messi and winning the Ballon dor. He really does seen obsessed with winning that above anything else. The only way he can continue to do such things is at Real. He'll stay in Madrid 100%.

He is gone and on his way to OT )

We'll see.

That we will, I think he would be crazy to leave but he is miffed at the club and if he was to go anywhere I think it would be United.

He's always miffed at something. Great player, but behaves like a spoilt brat. I'd like him at United, but no way it will happen. United is a step down. That'd be a big blow to his ego.

If Ronaldo leaves  and Real go on to win 3 CLs on the bounce, it'll be some blow to his ego and his aura. I think that might be too big a risk for him to take.

Aye but the media loathe him and the fans are not really fans of his, why not leave and be revered all over again by fans that realise his genius?

He has nothing to prove to anybody and does not need any more CL titles to bolster his legacy.

Look at what Real have won the last few years. What would they have won without him? The success will follow him including the individual awards.
You dont think Real would still have trophies? You dont think that  maybe they would have bought  someone else if they didn't have Ronaldo?
United need more than one player to win the Premier  League ffs.  Anyone that thinks if Ronaldo comes back to United that they will automatically win the league are deluded. Then this is Man United fans we are talking about I suppose

No. Not all of them.

Who else would they have bought that would even have made half the impact?

Nobody suggested that Utd would automatically win the league if Ronaldo came back but it would significantly increase their chances especially with a few more smart buys.

(By the way, I don't think he will leave Real.).

Nobody..really?
This was was just on the previous page!

Ronnie in red, instant title winners without question if he stays healthy, he is that good.
Fair point but I did not suggest it. The rest of my post stands.

Been reading this with interest, and apart from the obvious comments made about it, one question in my head is why Errigal released an edited version of the incident and did not include the footage of their mentor entering the field to hit an opposition player, which seems to be the reason this erupted. Why do they release it at all. If I was from the Clonoe club I would be extremely pissed of with Errigal, really poor from them

It was very clearly a deliberate ploy by Errigal to take any attention away from the fool that started the whole thing. Smart move by them.



I don't think it was smart at all, it is devious and shows the Errigal club with little integrity. Players will the odd fall out, there will be odd rows between a few players, its been happening for years, and will in future, but for me if it happened to my club, whereby  the opposition club released the edited video clip, it would effect club to club relations significantly.

To say it is 'edited' is a bit misleading.
What happened to spark the incident just wasn't caught on camera.
It pans over and sees the lad then being knocked out.
It does end quite quickly though, I can imagine that was the end of the melee.  :o

Your missing my point, what was Errigal club doing releasing it at all? Edited on not

How do you know Errigal released it?

Reading over these pages it seems certain that Errigal videoed the game, therefore they had the only video.

The clip may or may not have come from the recording that errigal had made of the game but if it did I very much doubt that they decided as a club to 'release' it. I also doubt they had exclusivity to the video as they probably employed a video company to record it. As someone else said in this modern world of social media it is impossible to control these things.

It seems that one of these knifers lived in Ireland for a while, so not only the UK budget cuts might get at fault.

That's convenient for a Hard Border argument. Or maybe even a case to argue for controls to be at Belfast ports instead of partition border. All this type of information is released for a reason.

Sure he only scores against the shite teams. That hat trick streak could continue against the best defense in the world.

The man is a machine. Without doubt the best to ever play the game.

Young lad has just been charged 620 for a clutch job on a Mazda 6. Seems a lot to me. Clutch kit should be about 200 max. 400 seems like barrister rates for labour. Should he be looking for a different mechanic?

Depends on if he put a dual mass flywheel in as well as clutch
If he did it's pretty cheap

You could be into 6 hours labour at least and maybe a fair bit more. Some of those jap cars take a fair bit of stripping to remove the gearbox. Probably not far away price wise.

I'd take a league title over everything else at this stage, even a Champion's League.
