I still find it strange Holgate was not disciplined in any way with regards to him pushing Firmino into the advertisement boards.

This decision kind of gives precedence to players crying racism, so they get off the hook for do something wrong. IMO i think Holgate just misheard something in Portuguese and jumped to the conclusion but you can be damn sure there'll be some cretin who will try to use this to their advantage.

Amazing that he didn't even get a yellow card.

And you're right, he probably would have except he made the accusation against Firmino.

Aside from the absence of the card though, you have to allow players to appeal to the authorities if they think they've been racially abused. There will be mistakes, there may even be an odd malicious false accusation, but what's the alternative?

To be fair, i think you give Holgate the benefit of the doubt in this case that he genuinely misheard/misinterpreted.

Trump want to arm teachers!

What if the Teacher ends up being the nutcase?

“Economic inactivity” still way above the U.K. average, we will probably just keep blaming that on the troubles

i.e. I'm not a jobseeker, i quite happy claiming every allowance I can possibly get, why the fcuk would i be seeking a job that would mean I have to put on clothes to go to the shops instead of a dressing gown....

Edit: I know there are lots of people on Jobseekers who are looking for work, but  last week  one of the girls in my place got a call where they were asked (told?) "Here Luv, I ve got an interview with you tomorrow. I'm not going to go to it but if anyone rings can you tell them I was at it.....

Jesus wept

The Warren Commission didn't take as long.  So it seems Holgate was the only one who heard anything.  It would be a worrying development if he made it up. It's not an allegation that should be made lightly, for a number of obvious reasons.  I hope he genuinely believed he did hear something.

I think this was discussed at the time. Most likely scenario is a case of Firmino insulting him in portugueses and holgate mishearing/misinterpreting as racist. Hopefully Bobby can put it behind him and focus on improving his form and his technical ability , eh trileacman  ;)

Redundance of petition of concern in reformed stormont meant it was pretty much guaranteed to go through anyway, no?

POC still exists. Needs backing from more than one party. So in theory the 28 DUPers plus 2 others could raise a POC against equal marriage.

Jim Allister pretty much a given

Big outfit in trouble.

When you see this and the likes of Carillion and Capita in the news lately, it does seem to be an issue of chasing contracts and revenue  at any cost. Firms seem to be pricing big jobs at such low margins that any problem at all means that your profit is gone.

In the Public sector procurement, the civil service are only interested in lowest price delivery. I know in the past firms made an absolute killing on the likes of PFI contracts etc but it does seem that the focus has gone too far the other way. There has to be a balance between price and delivery. Not good news for teh NI construction sector though.

Hopefully good signs for Grujic at Cardiff. Will be keeping an eye on him as he came highly rated and would be good to see how he performs after a run of games.

I just read about many police officers and servicemen who, when asked if they would go to peoples homes and take the guns from them, to a man/woman they said no, they would refuse ANY order to do so

So the armed services would mutiny? It's even more screwed up than I thought.

You a link to that article Stew? Would be interested to read that.

She said she 100% saw sex. She didn't walk up and specifically ensure and make note of his penis penetrating her vagina.

Was there not a mention of thrusting?

Even if there was? Would that prove penetration?
Beyond reasonable doubt........maybe.

Why would dry humping be less likely?
I don't have any statistics but I'd say if a heterosexual man is naked and a naked lady is in the position that this lady is alleged to have been in then the man is much, much, much more likely to have intercourse with her than to "dry hump" her. Now maybe the jury and the world at large think differently and maybe someone will give evidence of Jackson's love for dry humping. I doubt it though. If dry humping was his thing, he'd probably keep his clothes on, in case he got accused of rape or something.
He could have had a bit too much to drink and despite his best efforts, it was all he could muster.

Cant see that standing up in court....

Liverpool's problem will be the consistency. They could easily ship 2 or 3 away goals to any of the teams at Anfield and end up chasing the tie which is not something that they are suited to..

I see the team are training in Marbella as they have a weekend off after the WBA fiasco in the cup.  Old friend showed up with Dagger appearing at training.  :D

I did not realise he was only 33 still. If he had not been so blighted by injuries he could have been an absolute legend for the last ten years. Classy footballer.

Also rumours circulating that Liverpool have agreed terms with Roma keeper Alisson in advance of a £62m summer move. Sounds a bit too like last summers VVD fiasco for my liking! Can you "tap up" foreign players or does that only apply in premiership? Also, if thats the kind of money being talked about for him, what will Utd get for de Gea if Madrid come calling? £100m plus you would imagine. Failing to service that fax machine could turn out to be Utd's best ever move in the transfer market....

Somebody is lying to me..... ::) ::)

How does anyone know unless it's tried?

Australia decided to have an amnesty on semi automatic weapons and introduce strict background checks on all gun ownership going forward.

They haven't had a mass shooting since and the rates of homicide and suicide have reduced. You will never stop it completely or get all the guns but at least do f**king something!!!

Was not aware of that.

I dont normally pay too much attention to this thread because a) I know very little about the laws and situation in America bar what I see in the media and b) like all things USA on this board it seems to develop into the  into the usual  rants.

However, I honestly fail to see how anyone can defend not banning automatic/semi automatic  weapons. I get the whole issue around the number of  guns in circulation and if you banned them then they would be forced underground etc etc. But, if you make it harder for one nutjob to carry out a Sandy Hook, Vegas, Florida then surely that is a result. Yes if they were determined enough they could probably source guns illegally but I assume this would take time and they probably would not be able to put together the same arsenal and secondly may go for an "easier" option of using a knife/car or even a handgun etc. Horrific yes, but highly unlikely to result in the same number of fatalities.

I'm not sure where I stand on the handgun side of things. Personally I think if you are starting from scratch you ban them but given the Constitution and the sheer numbers in circulation that is never going to happen.

Listening to the radio interview now. Your man is an absolute dose.

George Keenan? has his own pigeon American accent.
What is it with their accents. There was another one has like an Cross between an English/Belfast accent. Hard to listen to

I actually thought it sounded a bit like Nolan's accent

Clearly all fcukwits must have the same accent so

Out of that team last night, is Milner the best value signing that Liverpool have made?

He's no  Sami Hyypia
