Chelsea deserve that. Liverpool have been very flat so far.

Remarkable to see Tom Parsons come on, definitely some advances in medicine since I had a similar injury and had to quit playing.

Will be in Copenhagen for a few days so has anyone any recommendations for places to visit, eating, drinking, places to avoid etc.?

Don't waste your time going to the Little Mermaid, apart from beating through the bus loads of the cruise ships, it very small and not worth the effort.

Take a walk up Stroget - longest shopping street even if you don't shop, plenty of side streets and squares to visit.

Go on a canal boat trip to see the city from a different perspective.

If taking the kids go to Tivoli Gardens for old style fairground and plenty to eat.

Bring waterproof coats, soft days are the rule even in summer.

Beware of the 'silent killers' - cyclists rule and lanes are everywhere even lined on footpaths, you won't hear them coming at you and they stop for no one.  Get a bike and join them. Probably the damn e-scooters will be there!

Walk everywhere if not on bike - go to Amalienborg palace where the royal family live, see the lack of security, you can walk close to the front door of their residences but be wary of the guards.

Take a walking tour - free tours from outside the downhill every day - last about 1.5 hours and give a lot.

Go eating in the 'cheaper' restaurants in meatpacking district of Vesterbro - remember that cheaper in Copenhagen is a relative term so be prepared. Stay away from coffee house chains.  Always read the menu outside to check the prices.

Nyhavn is a must to see the quite small coloured building that are always associated with Copenhagen. Don't eat or drink there as it is Copenhagen expensive.

Good botanical gardens and reasonable natural history museum.  Carlsberg brewery probably worth a visit but a distance out from centre.

If you need a tour guide I am available for the price of flight and accommodation.

Agree with this, but if youíve time it is worth considering a trip to Roskilde or Helsingor. Iím just back from Norway, in comparison Denmark is dirt cheap lol..

Was at the game, was hoping for a Wexford win before the game but met the biggest w**ker Iíve ever encountered at a game, and Iíve met a load of Tyrone supporters, unfortunately he was wearing a Wexford jersey. Cracking game and glad Tipp won.

Looks like something very bad could be happening. Nuclear accident on Russian submarine?

Summary of whatís happening according to Twitter. Havenít heard of EU Commission Security Counsel before though, so could all be a load of bollocks!

Pence's plane called back to DC over unspecified 'emergency'

Putin cancelling plans for today. The Kremlin says he will be meeting with his defence minister

EU Commission Security Counsel has been called for a meeting

Just home from Castlebar. Initial thoughts, we left that one behind us and Deegan is a clown, a joke of a ref at this stage.

The pints in the Mitchels club beforehand were nice.

The best of luck to Mayo in the next round.

Can a player stand on the crossbar to stop a free kick going over the bar? Or stand on another players shoulder?

Didnít McGeeney lift Andrew McCann in the air in a vain attempt to block Maurice Fitzgeraldís late free in the drawn 2000 semi?

Somebody was spoofing!

A Ulster GAA spokesperson said: ďAt no stage was Ulster GAA consulted in relation to the ABC Council pitches strategy.

The man who inspired the Britney Spears track Toxic was someone that the song's co-writer Cathy Dennis had been dating in the early 00s, who broke up with her in 2003: Noel Fitzpatrick, The Supervet.
