Oh yeah the old "he doesent have his own players", what manager does when he takes over ? You are always going to be inheriting players, some you want and some you don't. Surely if a manager is a "great" he can work with what he has and maximise the players at his disposal

UK social welfare is on balance less generous than RoI I think. Food Banks are very Tory.  The undeserving poor

So there are no food banks in the south?
The UK has 800,000 people on zero hours contracts, millions of people whose low wages are topped up by Government and over a million people who can't afford to buy enough food.

It's a different system

Was it not Labour that introduced tax credits ??

United had no European football in January, two games a month in February, March & April.

It's hardly baseball type fixtures

After those European games they had only 3 Premier League games, they won all three.

Is it any wonder Stormont is the way it is, if this is what's making the news.

How much will Barca have to pay to get Coutinho?

What would be a good price?
100million.
I'd hate to see him sold though.

FSG will sell him on for half that if the offer was on the table.
Nah doubt it, not with a new contract signed recently

Bit of storm in a teacup

Any disparaging remarks are gonna be highlighted and spun through the media

Sounds like Arline just had a bit of Blonde moment herself

Yeah that's how I see it, just the nonsense you have to put up with here. Wait to we see how many days this lasts on the news cycle

No one deserves to be moved on more than the manager.

Wouldn't be surprised if he deliberately sacked off the chase for top 4, knowing he wouldn't then be criticised as severely for league position.

No such excuses next year.

I wish the Irish government would take care of the homeless Irish people, you know, buy houses lying empty and house their own, then take care of refugees, but that's me!

The homeless problem isn't just a matter of a roof over their head, a lot of them have severe, complex addiction problems, so it's not just as simple as housing them

Since the Tories have come into power in 2010 one of the first things they did was "reform" public service pensions. So anyone working in the public sector in the north will also be paying more into their pension & working longer for a reduced pension.

Child neglect- Boys had overgrown toe-nails 'curled around toes'

The boy's mother lost an appeal at the High Court in Belfast against a decision to take three of her five children into foster care
Three young brothers were so neglected by their parents that their overgrown toe-nails curled around their toes, the High Court in Belfast has heard.
The boys, aged seven, nine and 10, lived in filthy homes covered in dog faeces, and two of them were sent to school in nappies, the judge said.
The judge dismissed an appeal by the boys' mother against the decision to take the three of them into care.

The boys' older siblings, aged 13 and 14, were left in the family home.
'Appalling condition'
Upholding the decision to remove the three youngest boys from their parents, the judge criticised social services for failing to act sooner to protect them.
"Sadly this case is characterised by the children presenting in an appalling condition over many years," the judge said.
The family, who cannot be identified to protect the children, moved house 14 times and lived in squalid accommodation, the judgement said.
It outlined how the three youngest boys were discovered at home in dirty nappies which their parents seemed unmotivated to change.
The children were soiling themselves in school and struggling to make friends because of their personal hygiene.

'Intellectual impairment'
Two of the boys were unable to use a knife and fork and appeared to lack full appreciation of going to the toilet, according to the judge.
In May this year, a health and social care trust secured a care order to remove the three youngest boys from their parents.
When the boys were taken into foster care, their clothes and toys smelt strongly of smoke, body odour and damp, the judge said.
She said their ability to walk improved after seeing a chiropodist about their overgrown toe-nails.
During the case, the court heard that the children's mother had significant intellectual impairment and her husband was described as being aggressive towards social services.

From my vantage point of probably the worst position in the ground to be able to tell, it looked straight over the bar.

The free taker didn't argue or the Rossa line !!! Wasn't even close to be fair...

So the umpire is a numpty? U do love a bit of the limelight in fairness

You only noticing that now?
