Anyone involved with United referring to it as a treble needs a good slap. 1999 is the benchmark.

Yes, but I doubt it'll ever be done again. Most teams, including United, would consider Liverpool's treble as a fantastic season.

Any season that ends with 3 trophies could be considered fantastic but any real supporter would trade all 3 for a league title at the drop of a hat.
What exactly is a 'real' supporter?
I often hear this term thrown around but what exactly defines if someone is a real supporter or not?
Real supporter=
In Irish terms a Dub who will go to Croker late rather than miss the end of the "Unira" game on Sky

The top 1% own 50% of everything. Median earnings are 27k.
I have no sympathy for the top 5%.

 I have no doubt that you dont feature in their sympathy list either

Corbyn's speech at Tranmere Rovers was superb. "This election is about you".
The Telegraph and the Daily Mail betray their own voters.

Inspiring stuff. Did he say that he believes that the youth are our future?

T'was nice of them to do the tests to highlight that we'd be a soft touch.  ???

It was probably Islamic State that did the Carrick a Dede rope bridge

No point whinging that the media are biased against Corbyn. Most of his parliamentary party are against him.

Economic policy and polarisation are linked to terrorism.

In UK, it results from isolation, segregation of populations and ghettoisation and then thrives in these conditions.  With Jihadist terrorism, UK has allowed ghettoes to develop, white flight in Northern towns has segregated the population by heritage.  Without being able to mix, learn and live with all others, those of non-UK heritage develop a world view which is a polar opposite of those of UK heritage.  In such circumstances, those who want to radicalise others find it easier to do.  If you live in a world where no one challenges the orthodoxy of the community then a false narrative or a re-writing of the historical narrative is easily achieved.

The British are aware of this
However, in their typical hypocritical way they are actively encouraging similar ghettos of unassimilated "British" people in this country.
You don't half talk a lot of shite.
And if anyone knows about shite talk it's you

Na, Mourinho is rubbish with over-rated and over-paid players everywhere.
Man Utd are rubbish.
You're a very good analyst of the game with an emphasis on the first four letters of analyst. Have you applied to R.T.E.?

There are good sound hurling people in both Offaly and Westmeath who would have no time for that type of shite. Neither county has a big population and is fairly evenly split between football and hurling. Its amazing that Offaly achieved what they did in the 80s and 90s. I recall one game where they were down 9 points against Kilkenny, came back to draw and won the replay by 9
its two thirds football in westmeath I'd say
only 15 adult hurling clubs

True. Geographically it's close to 50/50, but the hurling areas are more sparsely populated. Plus roughly 1/3 of the population lives in Athlone area where hurling is almost non existent.
I bow to your superior knowledge of the strength of clubs in both counties. There is a good core of hurling there and you wonder what would it need to bring them on. What areclubs in big towns like Athlone Mulligar Tullamore doing to promote hurling

The u25s didn't bother their hole going to the polling booth for the Brexit vote. They think that registering your views on Facebook or Twitter is enough

Go have a look at the crowds at Corbyn's rallies and reassess your opinion of young people.
For every one at the rally there is a thousand at home taking selfies of themselves eating avocados

More to come?

Theresa May just raised terror threat level to 'Critical' which the world of twitter tells me means an attack is imminent.

Did no one tell her that the election campaign has been suspended? I'd be amazed if they have any indication that an attack is imminent, she's just doing what she thinks people will be impressed by. Her emphasis of the word "independent" when announcing this made me smell a rat. Perhaps I'm wrong.
Living in the UK last few yrs ive been keeping a close on politics here, i have lots of close family from Manchester, Mum was born and raised there for a time and all her siblings grew up there so i have loads of first cousin aswell, all are safe, im so sad for so many reasons at this attack, to target children is just beyond my comprehension but look to target innocent civilians is just so wrong, who gains,  what are they trying to achieve, but to me this has false flag written all over it

The conservative govt were getting destroyed over the manifesto(dementia tax), even the right wing media slightly turned, and questioned them properly, then this happens on the same day, now may is getting unfethered coverage just like Jo Cox's tragic murder in the lead up to Brexit this will swing voters to ukip and conservatives,

Some of the reporting from the bbc and itv have been a disgrace, yesterday they posted 2 videos of corbyn talking about the terrorist attack and both edited out the part where he condemned the attack, some of the viewers outraged then commented he didnt condemn the attacks, job done

this tows the right media party line to smear corbyn as a terrorist sympathiser, Murdochs front page of sun written 2hrs before conveniently had Corbyn blood on his hands headline, you couldnt make this up, the timing couldnt of been more perfect for the tories, than you have the mail aswell having a sketch

The most obvious false flag was paris, the french govt itching to get involved in syria do so the day after this, even the band knew something was up,

Narrative from fox, murdoch owned as we all know

More on the right wing respnse

How did they identify the killer so quickly. was he carrying an id that survived the blast, how convenient. I dont trust the govt at the best of times but this time the timing and reaction and paper headlines coincide with the narrative and so close to an election where the opposition are gaining in the polls this is for me very obvious. An anti establishment opposition. It will be interesting to see how this affects the polls. My guess is this may have lost corbyn the election and that is heartbreaking too.

Corbyn had the election lost long before this attack.
Even Labour party people aren't voting for him except those still living in the 1950s
