Surprised Messi won it, not surprised to find shooters here lecturing people on it....

Messi is doing rightly for someone so one dimensional  :D

I see Desertmartin won the Junior championship last year as well as this year.  Should they not have been playing intermediate?  Just curious.

Will be next year, same with Intermediate. No promotion / relegation last year for the year that was in it

I bought this, and it just arrived with me today.  Haven't used it yet.

Thought the spec (processor / RAM) was very high for £600 in the Black Friday sale.

Forgot the link!!

That is excellent value. 16gb RAM for under £600, plus a good mid range processor. Only thing lacking for me is a dedicated graphics card but thats not necessary unless you are using it for gaming.

Bought one of these lads up in Finaghy, refurbed but not a scratch on it, 3 months warranty and a fraction of the price for a similar spec'd machine from PC world/Curry's who have bumped their prices up big time.

Mask wearing in certain parts of Derry City has really nose dived in the last while. The difference between the likes of Derry City and say Dublin / Galway is night and day. The amount of people who literally couldn't give a fcuk about their fellow man / woman is staggering. It doesn't take much to wear one.

Just get the feeling that Kilcoo have a lot more in the bag. Seemed to stutter through Down Championship. Seasoned Ulster veterans and that has got to count for something even if a few of their players are probably past their prime.

Referee'd them a couple of seasons ago at the Uni, christ they were a fast moving team, inter play and movement off the ball was pretty good, plenty players that came on also and fitted in well with their system. They might get it tighter in their own county, teams are getting wise and they are getting older so its no surprise that its tough in your own championship.

You could well be right.
I just get the feeling they are timing their peak for this ulster championship rather than the Down championship. It they did it was a dangerous tactic as they nearly got caught out a few times.

We'd have done that in our pump, but as you say, one bad performance and you've egg on your face, what struck me about them, they aint the biggest side, I mean physically I've seen bigger teams, but lighting pace makes up for it. They aint shy in throwing it about either, nothing wrong with that too

Within reason. As a neutral from another county who knew nothing about them before seeing them on tv I don't like them at all and prefer to see them beat...

   "No one likes us, we don't care" 
         Its funny when trying to define what Kilcoo are.  I suppose they are very like Slaughtneil, St Galls or Cross. The club comes first and is greater than the county.
        I'd guess for me, the team they most resemble is the Tyrone senior football team. Ruthless, do anything to win and fiercely defensive off and loyal to their players and fans.(not forgetting some brilliant players).
         I'm no big fan of either Kilcoo or Tyrone but you have to have a grudging admiration and respect for what they have achieved.
       

Slaughtneil men, club and county. Have you seen Derry senior football panels over the last number of years?

There has been alot if moaning about a tournament in Qatar as well.  Its fantastic.  Something different, a winter wc.  Remember the crying about the wc in Russia.  Wasn't sure about it myself but it was run very well and fair play.  Different continents deserve their turn

Fantastic? Not for me for a multitude of reasons, 'something different' doesn't enter the equation

Alot of this kit will be from the Public sector, so very little usage. Bargains to be had

Not that i'm too worried about this but has anyone got a booster that is different from their first 2, eg Pfizer first 2 and moderna the booster?

Just wondering

Pfizer 1/2 and Moderna booster. Sore head for a day after the booster, but all good

got my 1st covid jab yesterday afternoon (Moderna) only side effect so far is a sore arm. had flu jab last week and have to get the pneumonia jab in a couple of weeks as well due to it being in my lungs when I had Covid.
would have been a hell of a lot easier to have got the Covid jab when I should have earlier in the year.

How's the energy levels Clar if you don't mind me asking?

I have improved a good bit and people say I look healthier but at same time I only walk from room to room or a bit outside the house as I don't want to push it. Going up the stairs is still a real killer. It's just going to take time but my aim is to try and start doing 15-20 min walks in January and see how that goes.

Good man, you'll know how much you can do. I know my good friend would build up her walks by counting lampposts. A higher number was a wee victory. The wee victorys all build up.

Given Austria's position I thought it would be interesting to see how board members would vote here. Thanks
             A mandatory vaccination scheme is where you are required by law to get vaccinated and face punishment if you do not do so. Those refusing vaccines are likely to face administrative fines which can be converted into a prison sentence if the fine is not recovered.
the totalitarians are winning I see , most would call themselves progressive liberals too .

It's this utter bulls1t from posters like yourself that doesn't allow for any kind of discussion, none. As someone said the other day, folk like yourself have been taken for a complete ride by the Karen's of this world... Wool pulled over your eyes. Hopefully the next time a doc prescribes you some medicine you tell him you'll get back to him once you've done due diligence.
PS: it's not too late. I know of 2 fairly vocal anti-vaxers who have had both jabs, but won't admit it to their new Facebook friend group, still towing the party line... Lunacy
I donít do Facebook , you are in favor of prison terms for not vaccinating ?
But ye Iím the loon

Yes, the post above pretty much nails it.
