Oh for a ref with the dedication to implementing the rules of my fellow county man John Gough.  He set the standard in '83.

A poor quality match in which Tyrone were the better side but nearly blew it with a combination of bad shooting and some terrible decision making summed up by McClure kicking the ball into Beggan's hands with a minute to go.  Have they not watched the Dubs play keep ball?? The ref was worse that atrocious but overall I don't think the result would have been different with a decent ref.

Dubs by 10 in the final.

It is a hate crime though and it should be followed up on as such.  I don't care if themmuns do it 500 times every summer.  We shouldn't do it EVER as it's lowest of the low, gutter trash behaviour.  We should be above it.

That bonfire should be removed immediately along every wee sc**bag associated with the building of it.

Whoever did this are class A, knuckle dragging idiots.  Bonefires on 9th August are every bit as ridiculous as those on 11th July and have little or nothing to do with how I see my Irish identity and culture.

He was right about Gerrard!

The whole Ronaldo stuff was more amusing.

He was bang on about Stevie G though!

Gerrard had the European Cup in his hands about 100 minutes later, having led the most famous fightback in the history of the sport.

I take it this is tongue in cheek??

It won't make any difference to the outcome but I think we could have done without Damien Duff's comments yesterday.

Especially since he hasn't a clue what he's talking about.

DUP have suspended Paisley's party membership pending further investigations.

We bet Galway in 2012.  Not too relevant but just wanted to get that in.

Was it him who suffered a broken arm in a cup final v Chelsea...197?

No, if memory serves me right that was Mick Jones in 1970.  I remember that because of the WC, the Cup Final was brought forward to mid April.  The Horse of the Year Show had been on at Wembley the week before and the pitch was like a ploughed field!

I'm nearly sure it was the 1972 FA Cup Final. He damaged it crossing the ball in for Clarke's diving header. Think he might have collided with a photographer. Had to be helped up to collect his winner's medal.

My head's going.  You're right, that happened in the 1972 Cup Final v Arsenal though the match report says Jones' injury happened in the last minute.

Is this the same guy who was blubbing his eyes out in the HoC last week??

'Writing in The Ballymena Guardian Mr Paisley accepted that "there are some who would have me booted out of Parliament".  "They are opportunists, some with questionable motives, and I can tell them that I have no intention of going quietly into the night," Mr Paisley wrote.  The North Antrim MP vowed that he would fight any by-election in the event of a successful petition to recall him.  "Make no mistake about it, I will seek re-election as I have never run away from an election in my life and I don't intend to do so now," he wrote.  Responding to the committee's report Mr Paisley argued that the ruling that he was guilty of paid advocacy on behalf of the Sri Lankan government was "harsh" and that the "rules were confusing".  However Mr Paisley rejected the claim in the report that he did not disclose the visits to the country as he was "too embarrassed to be associated with the Sri Lankan Government".  He wrote that the idea "never crossed my mind"."Given our own country has a government made up of terrorists, it always amazes me just how arrogant some commentators here can be about other world regimes," Mr Paisley wrote.

He really is a piece of work.  The rules were confusing??  "Should I declare these two holidays for me and my family worth over £50,000 when the limit is £660??"  Confusing right enough!

Played in every outfield position for Leeds, as I recall.  RIP.

He played centre-forward in the 1968 League Cup Final and left back in the 1972 FA Cup Final.  Famously turned down a place in the England squad for the 1970 World Cup saying he wanted a rest and didn't want to go to Mexico if he wouldn't get a game (Mexico was very far away in 1970!). RIP

BBC projecting the cut at +2 at the moment, but could go lower as conditions improve.  Stenson +3 and Garcia +4 look to have the weekend off.  Darren Clarke currently +14.  Ian Poulter shot an 81 today to end up +12.  Lowry currently +4 with 7 to play.
I wonder does O'Neill have a tenner on him this year?

Hope not, he's now +17 and plumb last.

The full report makes very interesting reading. The commissioner comprehensively demolishes every excuse/justification/explanation (ie lie) he came up with to justify himself. He even furnished a picture of himself supposedly at an 11th night bonfire in Ballymena at the time he was supposed to be in Sri Lanka, that section is almost laugh out loud funny. Anyone with a titter of decency and respect would resign. Any party with a titter of decency and respect would sack him. That's why nothing will happen and he'll keep his job... and another scandal involving him will come down the line eventually  ::)

Indeed the full report is a very good read.  For some reason Ogie wants to muddy the waters around the dates of his second visit to Sri Lanka.  He disputes the dates that the DT claimed he was there.  He claims to have been at an 11th night bonefire somewhere in Nth Antrim then he claims to have flown to New York on either the 12th or 13th (again he's not sure), but the Commissioner noted from bank statements he supplied that his bank card had been used to make cash withdrawals from the Westminster ATM while he was supposed to be in New York.  She also commented that the inquiry would have been concluded months ago had Ogie not take so long to produce "evidence" to support his side of the story.

I like this line about his solicitors:

Despite his solicitor’s statement on 8 September 2017 that Mr Paisley “totally denies the defamatory inferences arising from the article in today’s Daily Telegraph including those relating to his registration obligations as an MP”, Mr Paisley has accepted from a very early stage in this inquiry that he should have registered the hospitality he received in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests in 2013.
