What is going on?

Looks like 70s?

Yeah they have started playing a bit more now so hopefully a better second half.

Limerick very in your face aggressive. Could do with concentrating on playing hurling.

Very Hard to take today but Iím still scratching my head as to why Simon McCrory came on into the forwards. Given that he is a defender and was only back training a week or so it Just didnít make sense. Maybe he plays forwards for club? And where was Rooney? Was he injured or just not in favour. The kid had a Brilliant write in papers a while back Sambo saying he was the next best thing - and now heís not getting a run out?  What happened McCloskey too?  Injured??  A few strange things IMO

The defense was excellent though so to be honest i don't think any defender there would have improved us? Mcrory started life as a half forward.

Our old achilles heel of forwards as someone said got us. For three quarters of the game we were a good bit better in general play than laois but the other quarter they made it count.

We don't have ball winning forwards so even with way more possession we will not necessarily win games. I was very impressed with the defense and ypung mcnaughton when he came on. Really didn't think we deserved to lose that game but when it could have went either way at the end we didn't take our chances. I saw considerably more positives than negatives though obviously hugely disappointing to be relegated.

Two people seriously ill in hospital with symptoms that are related to being affected by a nerve agent
Nerve agents are produced by Russia and known to be used by other countries such as Syria
Nerve agents are available in UK in the Porton Down facility

Media speculation:

Russian state used nerve agents to attempt to kill two of its (former) citizens in UK
Russian state facilitated other Russians to use nerve agent to attempt to kill two people in UK

Note this morning that McDonnell is going around correcting Corbyn's earlier statement and supporting May's position on the nerve gas attack.

Why bother to bring a nerve agent to the UK to kill specific people when it could be done much more simply given the resources of the Russian state.

Yeah something does not feel right about this.

Also feels like a bit of , very erroneous, political opportunism by the tories which they could be very sorry about.

It really doesn't feel like there is enough, or any, proof on this. In the court of law you have to prove beyond reasonable doubt so what is different here.

Then again maybe my anti brit/tory bias makes me unable to look at it completely rationally.

What do people think of this? The UK seemed to have reached conclusions long before anything has been proven. Woe betide anybody who doesn't weigh in behind the jingoistic Government line. The rapidity & rashness  of the response is worrying imo. Boris and the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson 2 utter clowns as per normal.
For balance  ;D ;D ;D ;D here's the view from Russia. WARNING, may contain whataboutery

Russian propaganda vrs British propaganda. Both the same to me.

Precisely itchy.

I almost wonder is it a tory plot to sink corbyn. The brits have really jumped the gun on this. Are they 100 percent sure it was the russians? I don't know that they are.

I just saw Mourinho's comments about how he knocked Man Utd out at OT with Porto and Real Madrid, so it's nothing new for United. He's some cookie.

Yeah which basically translates to - happened before so can't be me to blame. I really don't know how anyone ever warms to this guy.

It is beginning to feel a lot like lost bm. Waiting on something good to happen but hasn't yet.

Glad i am not the only one suffering!

Frank i guess they had to deviate from the comic somewhere.

I have no idea how they end the walking dead. Said the same on dexter and it ended really badly.

Anyone still watch the walking dead?

Yeah. Very surprised by the whole thing. Expected better from him. Surely he should realise that for some people it is very difficult to accept playing in windsor park to god save the queen. Some people just can't do it. No problem with those that do but it isn't for everyone.

Yeah it is not very often we beat offaly. While in the grand scheme of things not much bearing on anything still very pleasing to beat them plus hopefully a confidence boost for laois.
