I watched the match, I haven’t watched it back, but I can’t remember a point where I thought this ref is taking the piss..

What I did noticed was Tyrone failed to pull away when they had their dominance. Kerry made the right changes and Mickey didn’t act on them.

Best team won, they generally do without needing assistance from the ref. Close this thread, it’s embarrassing to be honest

And very glad I was never refereed by your good self sir, if you think that Deegan's display that day is beyond reproach, seriously. Or maybe you think that wildly erratic application of the rules is just fine?  ;)

Were they as wildly erratic as they Tyrone display in the second half?
When a team crumbles it's easy to blame the referee.

They’re looking a place to hibernate, as it’s getting near the end of season.

Water in jar jam, jam around the top will sort them out.
I don't believe in killing them. Show them out the window

Euphoria was first class.

It is but... Holy f**k!!!
;D The missus said the other night there is apparently a good teen drama on, "why don't we watch it this evening with the boys". The elder two are 12 and 15.

Anyway it got late and they had no interest so we watched a part of the first episode ourselves. Jesus Christ! It may be about teens but it's certainly not for a 12 year old or a 15 year old to watch with their Ma and Da!  :o

Porto and Basel also knocked out tonight. There’s a lot of teams all at the same level.
Cluj have won the last two Romanian leagues.

Doesn’t matter. I’ve never even heard of that team before ffs
You mean you don't follow Romanian club soccer?!

Would these East Belfast engineers be willing to travel to Coalisland, Clonoe, Dungannon, Ardboe for work?  The screening and crushing guys have been screaming for fitters, welders, plasma cutters for the guts of 2 years. 

One of the big issues is the work mentality / ethic of the employees in places like H&W.  Its was the same with the employees in Caterpillar in Monkstown, couldn't get the cnuts to work so caterpillar just shut shop.  Not sure if that's a Belfast / city mentality but they are so protected by their trade unions and have always had a "thats not my job" attitude it sometimes comes as no surprise when the business starts to suffer.
I don't think it's a Belfast thing, rather it's a unionised labour issue. When you have a union holding an employer to ransom then it's easy for the employees to think they call the shots and work as fast or as slow as they want. I used to work in Nortel in Monkstown and we regularly worked unpaid overtime to deliver projects but the shop floor workers wouldn't hear of it. That site is now closed.

I wouldn’t say there would be much, well any, correlation between unpaid overtime from factory workers and nortel going tits up. Nortel was going belly up globally and some factory workers in monks town wouldn’t really have had that much to do with it.

Trailers stats on employment these days are very skewed by zero hour contracts. It is only an employees market in a few spaces.
Correct. I was merely highlighting the difference in the mindset between the unionised labour and people who see getting the job done as the target. Each to their own, but getting the job done on time in a service based industry tends to keep clients happy. I see it now in my current company - you have clock watchers and workers and in general clock watchers don't progress very far.

Cheers Owen - a lot of good stuff there. I'm there with work primarily, but tacking on a couple of days with the missus so we'll definitely follow your advice.

Spanish guy decides to make video of himself throwing fridge over cliff, with an anti recycling message. He doesn't bother concealing the reg number on his van.

I love that they made him drag it back up. That's proper order.
Certainly make others think twice about dumping their crap in the countryside.
