Steven Gerrard? he could be a contender, has done well at Rangers and is on the fast track to being an astute coach/manager.

Ally McCoist in heaven.And we showed them only one club on Merseyside. #ynwa.
On our way to the title now.Pity the Red Mancs won.
It's really really nice  and unique to boot, to at last have a genuine Liverpudlian here on GAA board. Though in all my time in Liverpool, about 6 months  or so way back in the day, I mostly only came across supporters of Everton.

Just watching a record of the Toy show. I can’t take anymore, I’m in bits here. Some of the shite those wee youngsters deal with makes you realise how lucky a lot of us are.

Was one of the best toy shows! A lot of emotional issues dealt with. To be fair Tubridy is very good at dealing with kids!
You're trying to humour The Grinch?

Yes those are all fair points  and afaics they have all been discussed to the nth degree and what that boils down to is we'll take this bit of the GB but drop that bit. this bit is okay but that bit is not kosher. But the Green Brigade come as a group, not a pick out the best bits and dump the rest.
The songs have changed the overt support for the IRA has been lowered a few notches and who is to say that other aspects like flares wont undergo a rethink , but the boards ultimatum of sorts to the GB is a pile of corporate dung and Lenny is in there bown nosing the financial cost argument.

According to the Examiner, Celtic have been fined £150k over a 6 year period, about a third of that for flares, 42k alone for the Bobby Sands banner,  about £50k of that  in fines for  general supporter stupidity not GB related.

So all in all, £17k GB related fines per annum  in a club which earns about £80m p/a. Even in Uefa circles, Celtic fans matter little in the scheme of things of concern

Thats the  best possible outcome for Ireland should they qualify,
Home venue against Sweden and Poland and away to Spain in Bilbao
Not likely to ever have a chance against Spain  anyway.

Yes the overall squad standard has improved and competition to start in the first 11 has intensified muich to the benefit of the standard of play. Though  I'd say Rogic's tissue of injuries are his main negative factor, a fully fit Rogic would be there or thereabouts in the first 11.
But it's still a football club with an ethos much bigger than what the board think the commercial corporate image could or should be.
Without the green brigade at the heart the atmosphere is dysfunctional, could not even sing YNWA properly. It was the fantastic Rennes support who brought all the colour and the atmosphere.
Has Celtic Park ever been so empty and soulless just before the final whistle of arguably one of the most important european results?

The beating up the grocer scene was as bad acting as Big Daddy v Haystacks!  ;D :-X

Horrible scene you’d think Scorsese the one of the greatest directors of our time would have picked up how shitty it looked!!
I picked up that it looked shitty because Frank brought his daughter along to witness his parental prowess.

The news report on the Celtic AGM was depressing. Without the Green Brigade  the  Celtic Park experience is popcorn and soda. Lennon who like other managers is partial to going over to that corner to receive the acclaim and pose for pictures while doing so, was strangely silent at the agm, but was loud in his praise for Lawell who is apparently worth every penny of his 3.5m salary.. The board are getting peed off with the riff raff who poke  the biting political element into the banners/flags.

The de ageing was out by 20 or so years, a 30year old looked like 50 years old but moved like a 70 years old. It was a distraction but just in passing.

It was a tough ask for a manager to take over after Wenger, one of the all time great manager/coaches and football personalities.

Which club would Mourinho have chosen if offered the choice, Spurs or Arsenal?

Looks like just 50% of the Green Brigade section has been left empty. 
I take it that UEFA are not bothered by renditions of old classics such as BOTOB?

It was Celtic that closed the section..no UEFA. We love the atmosphere the GB bring to the matches but they have to stop the flares and silly banners before someone is seriously hurt or killed
The flares for sure, they're acts of lunacy but Mussolini was worth it.

Did anyone hear something about a well known political Cavan family being involved?

There's a well known political Cavan family?

Yes.

Is this the person they cannot name for legal reasons?

"The men are Luke O’Reilly (66), Mullahoran Lower, Kilcogy, Co Cavan; Alan O’Brien (38), Shelmalier Road, East Wall, Dublin 3; Darren Redmond (25), Caledon Road, East Wall and another man in his 30s who cannot be named for legal reasons and by order of the court."

Don't think so, the person they can't name is up on a murder charge.

It's the mother and son who I've heard are connected to a well known political family in Cavan, I think the mother was brought in connection with buying credit for phones that were used in the Lunney kidnapping.
That sounds like a Cavan plan, a Cavan lad planning a kidnap and torture event, decides that subterfuge is getting his mom to purchase credit for the phones, that in all eventualities it could never fall back to him.

You're the bigger fool to believe anything Angelo says.

Now tell me where was that Hughes lad from that was trafficking humans in the back of trucks?
Where did I say that I believed what was written by Angelo.
Do you have any theories about the inspiration  and subsequent motivation for the attacks against QIH?

A)It could be done in support of Quinn rather than at his instruction. I don't think anyone would have disputed the support and loyalty SQ had in the area.
B) KL has an on-going family feud with another family in Kinawley that has already spilled over to police involvement, restraining orders etc.
C) Maybe the current directors hands weren't clean from the early attacks to get the buy out completed and the people involved aren't happy to stand down just because the Directors seem to have got what they wanted.

Might be none of the above either.

I'd file those under the far fetched variety.

Right up there with Tyrone having the best championship in Ulster.  :D

Not really, what the Ulster club has shown us so far this year is that there is little between the all the teams and Tyrone has by far and away the most competitive senior club championship.

Indeed.
if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Tyrone GAA
