Great that this has been extended til the 10th of August. Have really enjoyed my time off and got loads of stuff done around the house. Got to spend time with the kids doing homework and sport skills. You can see the improvement in them in both. My neighbours who have public sector jobs been on full wages and doing little or no work clearly disapprove of me getting the payments. Asking me when am I going back to work. I return ask them the same question. As far as they are concerned checking e-mails is work.  The snobbery is gas!

Checking emails is indeed work, if you then do the action required.

To be fair they do work an hour or two a day! They are not total dossers! One is a teacher, so she is on official holidays now. Anyway we are all in this together, doing our bit staying away from people. It's getting late, these sleep ins sure make it hard to go to bed early!

Great.

Thanks for letting us all know about your neighbours jobs and wellbeing too.

And the R thingy is up to 1 now.
It certainly hasn't gone away.

Nope. It's getting way worse in Florida now too, nearly 9,000 cases there today.

So it seems that Barry Cowens drink driving story was leaked to the media by his party colleague Thomas Byrne as he was mad at Cowen getting a ministerial post instead of him. The tweet below is from one of Thomas Byrnes canvassers Ken McFadden

Crazy if true, so Byrne knew but Martin didn't?

The resurrection of knockout hasnít warmed his heart this year. He knows that itís simply a symptom of dysfunction.
ďThis is a little bit like the foot-and-mouth league - the Covid All-Ireland! No matter who wins it, it will be tainted because itís different.Ē
Translation of Maughan: "I'm a Manchester United supporter fuming that Liverpool are back on their perch."

Perch quote relates to league titles won. Liverpool on 18 titles back when the quote was made United 7. Right now it's 20 - 19 in favour of United. Now back to topic, tainted championship or not can Dublin win the All Ireland with a FF Taoiseach in charge?
Ferguson made the quote in 2002 actually, when Manchester United were still four behind Liverpool in league titles. He made clear the job of knocking Liverpool "off their perch" had already been achieved.

Now Liverpool, like Dublin, are very much back on their perch.

Many of the informed journalists reminded Ferguson  of his quote when United won their 19th league title in 2011, in reply Fergie gave a Jim Gavin like smirk.  Liverpool with a great manager and lack of challengers should have no problem getting to 21 league titles in the years ahead.

As for Dublin they are still 13 All-Ireland titles behind Kerry. A target for Dessie to reach?

Dublin are 8 behind Kerry I thought?

How does this work? Like fantasy football in soccer?

Sweden now with 2 people in ICU
Deaths are almost zero a day
Testing is away up from what they were testing 2 months ago
Hospital admissions away down
Testing positive reminds the same
What does that tell us?
They now know how to deal with patients?
Or
Younger ones getting it? As not many going into hospital with it anymore

Might have mutated to a weaker strain perhaps?

A lot of clubs near the border are playing challenges against Monaghan and Cavan clubs I believe.

Tony Fearon

Does he still read the board?

Indeed  ;D

Everton fans are as delusional as Newcastle United fans.
explain how??
Top Ten finish and widespread calls from fans for Sam Allardyce to go.  Decent league position for squad they have.  Don't subscibe to the view that a team, be that Everton, West Ham, Man U etc, have to play a certain way.  It's a results based industry and Allardyce's results were decent.
seriously? What results were decent? The performances definitely weren't. Big sam served up some of the biggest dross ever witnessed at goodison. 3 games this season at home we didnt have one shot on target. His totally negative approach was a real turn off with the fans and he done nothing to try to win over the fans who didnt want him in the 1st place.
Everton fans crave success and want to be challenging the top 6 and competing for cups and playing in europe. Big sam isnt and never will be the man for that.

That's quite a brilliant piece of research.
top research all right.  8) it's the research of a man with not much happening in his life. I stand by it though, it's weird even when I say it  ;D

See liverpool fans have disgraced themselves again by targeting the dixie dean memorial outside goodison. This is memorial used by relatives to lay flowers beside to remember loved ones that have passed away. It was deliberately set on fire by someone placing a red flare on it. Wonder if Hillsborough memorial was targeted how Liverpool fans and the media would react.
Liverpool fans spoke all week about a lack of respect being shown to them by others 🤔

So... what... its OUR fault that some probably drunk or drugged-up young lout or group of louts defaced or destroyed the Dixie Dean monument? (Can't find any reference to this in the news, BTW, except a quote in the Echo from someone called Dan Bellis).

What are you trying to say?
thing with Liverpool and their fans is that it's never their fault. Obviously you know very little about what's going on in the city if you think it's not news. Then again the connection most of yous have with Liverpool starts and ends with the TV remote.

Some yob sticks a flare in the elbow of the statue and its headline news and an indictment of Liverpool supporters en masse? Give me a f**king break and spare us the sanctimonious ďalways the victims/never their faultĒ bollocks.

If someone on the board here is defending this, then by all means call them out on it. But we are no more responsible for this type of misbehaviour or vandalism than you are.
As for the last sentence, well jaysus, Iím sorry we all canít be genuine, legitimate, authentic supporters such as you apparently are yourself. No doubt Everton Football Club disavows all support and income from anywhere beyond the coast of Britain.

People who vandalise and attack others are arseholes of the highest order, of course. They just happen to hook themselves to a club. Not much LFC or other supporters can do about that. Should Liverpool supporters have to come out and state that obvious fact after each misdemeanour?  The mantra seems to be evil Liverpool and all its supporters. Pure as snow Everton that represents all that is right and virtuous.

Of course not. Neither should Utd fans such as myself have to state the bleedin' obvious any time Utd fans do anything stupid.

Are we looking at a no-deal come January given the deadline for extending the transition period lapsed with no agreement? Or will they extend anyway?

See the video of people on Dame Street on Twitter. Hope none of them have it because it's a disgrace imo.

Not leaving the Country this year or going near trains, buses or planes.

Same if possible.
