That dirty thug Allison kicking the lucozade bottle and hitting a disabled kid in the front row...

Disgusting behaviour and should be roundly condemned but no mention here...

Fishing again

 :D

Seriously though, I didn't see it, but I did hear the Talksport commentator talking about it.

Dumb move on his part.

Hopefully unintentional.

Not biting….was an accident and he apologised.

Pickford is a disaster,  loves the camera shot save but is poor at the basics

Everton are in serious bother, Liverpool played well but didnt even have to do too much for any of the goals.

No mention of Jota's antics in the first half? Liverpool fans quick to hand it out to other teams when other players behave like that.

What antics?  When he got caught by a stray boot from Allan?

What were this antics? I was watching (or at least trying to) on my phone at the back of a staff training so definitely a chance I missed something

Didn’t think there were any antics. There were suggestions that he dived and got Allan booked but it was clear that Allan’s trailing foot caught him. Other than that….?

Felt a bit sorry for Seamie as he was playing well, giving it everything, getting stuck in but no dirt. Like Jorginho at the weekend, it was a time to clear rather than to try and control the ball. Of course only for Salah was driving at 100%, gambling on something like that happening, he could have got away it.

Salah did miss a sitter early on, but didn’t let it effect him.

We’re playing the best football and the best at scoring goals, but City and Chelsea are keeping going too and probably better at eeking out the single goal wins in tight games.

Bookies have City odds on, followed by Chelsea, then Liverpool. I’d also agree with City as favs, but marginal and with LFC second. Although not sure how internationals will work out with us losing the Salah, Mane and others.
Coleman got a hand to him but maybe didn't know in the heat of the match that he had a covering defender, so prob would only have copped a yellow for clattering Salah that far out, rather than letting him run in on goal. BCB1 wouldn't have made the same mistake.

Would have swung the leg and hoped I got him!  I certainly wouldn’t have chased him down!

Just watched a brilliant documentary that randomly appeared on my Netflix recommendations called I Believe in Miracles. It’s about the Forest team that got promoted and went on to win the League and a couple of European Cups. Very good and worth a watch.

Yes Clough and Taylor had the Midas touch. Great bit of TV.  As a Liverpool fan, you could only hold respect for their achievements at Liverpool's cost!

I used to have great respect for a Clough in how he ran his teams and how they played football. I lost an awful lot of respect for him as a person over his fan  blaming surrounding Hillsborough. He didn’t actually seem like a very nice person at the back of it all.

I’m always afraid to post in here as I feel like I’m a scud by times. Last night was a strange one. Struggled the first half with our shape due to the amount of changes. Getting to HT goalless was a bonus with the chances they had.

Second half was a complete stroll, even before the goal. And what a goal!  As sweet a strike as you’ll ever see. The way he shaped his body, controlled the ball and directed it. Pure class.

Second wasn’t bad either and a decent ball from young Morton,  who has the makings of a good player. He is watery as f**k looking but when he was walking off the field he was with Williams(who also put in a great shift) and Morton is a few inches bigger than him. When he grows into his body he’ll be very good as he has the skills and the brains. Learn off Thiago and Fab,  he has a bright future.

Clean sheet, no injuries, playing decent, and players coming back. All good really

ABC carrying on the proud legacy left by Craigavon Borough Council…

The sad thing is, after all the work Sean Traceys put in to get this area suitable for GAA, it's actually Lurgan Celtic who are forcing the change.  Lurgan is not short of community football pitches.

Antrim Borough Council being just as inclusive….

GAA Discussion / Re: 50 years of the all Ireland club championships
« on: November 18, 2021, 04:03:56 PM »
I’m one of the luckiest footballers in Ireland. I grew up with a bunch of lads who were serial winners from we were cubs and we brought that through to adult level. I remember a Clan na Gael man chiding me saying I was the worst player to ever win an All Ireland….I disagreed with him…I told him I was the worst player to ever win 3! 

It is 50 years since the first one and next year is 25 years since our first one but the competition is only getting better. I think our win coincided with the new world we were living in with people having more money from an improving economy and freedom following on from the ceasefire. The GAA became ‘sexy’ and we as a team were part of the new media focus on the games. Coupled with that was the internet which brought things to a whole new level of exposure.

Our story is well written, our heroes are well known, but to this day I still get goosebumps when i remember back to the ‘good old days’….I love meeting old foes who are now good friends. We all have the same aching limbs and fading memories,  though some of the tales are getting bigger as the years pass!

Bad day at the office. From the very start West Ham were more focused on their gameplan whereas we were all over the place. Perhaps thought that it was going to be a lot easier than it was and couldn’t get out of the complacency funk. No medals given out in November so not gonna panic. First game lost in 25 so it’s not like it’s a travesty. Reset and see ye in 2 weeks, get some of the injured players fitter/back

4 touches in citys box...was this worse than the Liverpool game?

I don’t know but they had more shots on target on their own goal than on City’s. That tells its own story

Glen will give Ulster a fair rattle this year, though they’re on the same side as Kilcoo so that won’t be easy navigated. An Ulster final between Glen and Clann Eireann will be a ding dong battle. 2 up and coming under age set ups finally making the break through. A new name on the Seamus McFerran cup this year methinks….

We won’t see a full League cup team but you will see changes for the last 2 games. Kelleher, Williams, Gomez, Konate, Tsimikas/Robbo, Milner, Ox, Jones, Origi, Jota, Minamino ….that’s still a strong ‘2nd’ team with the likes of Nat Phillips, Morton, Kaide Gordon, Bradley as subs. Keep the squad happy and sharp

You think that team (or similar) will start or just a smattering of them?

I’d say 7-8 of that team is likely to start. Definitely will see Kelleher, Konate, Gomez, Williams, one of the LBs, Jones, Origi and Minamino in my opinion.
