Folks, I'm due to fly with Ryanair next Friday night from Dublin. Apparently there's a 48 hour strike by Ryanair pilots from Thursday - Saturday. Any advice on what to do?  Should I go ahead and book a new single outbound flight now or wait?

If it's a strike am I eligible for a refund for my new or original booking?

Flybe cancelled our flight over for the Grand National last year due to staff shortages (not a strike though).  We got a refund and compensation a few weeks later.  The money back basically paid for our flights and hotel stay.  European flight cancellation regulations would be worth a we search on google to double check.

I have a P20 Pro and before that i had an S7.  I didnt find it difficult to change at all.  The Huawei EMUI operating system is maybe slightly different to Samsung so of course that would take a little getting used to.  Camera is great, battery life great etc.  Ive had it now for well over a year and i would have no complaints.  Look out for deals that sometimes accompany the Huawei phones.  I got a set of Bose QC2s with mine and the wife got a decent tablet with her P30.

Do you mean transferring files from PC to phone? That's something I've never had to do so i couldn't comment really.

No issue with Google on it.  There was a bit of a scare going round but Mr Trump and China came to a trade agreement i believe.

Lurgan Saints still interested!

Good Poll this.  Will be an interesting result.  I'm obviously neutral but i voted that i wouldn't pay the 90 if offered.  Ive been to quite a few football finals as a neutral too in the past.

Shockingly poor attendance. Pricing and fixture build up have to be looked at. Not many can afford to pay those prices week after week, especially if trying to bring your family.  Travel cost on top of it all too.

It's a feckin amatuer game ffs! Fans from all over the country shouldnt be being rode like this... our county players deserve better than 33k at an all ireland semi final.

Chelsea lineup may have looked a little bare but going by the MOTD highlights they were well in that game.  Willian, Kante, and even Hudson Odoi to come back in so that will help.

Was there in July. Wristbands are the way to go surely. Unless of course you aren't planning on getting on anything. That's my 3rd time there and I must say that I noticed a big increase in queueing times this year. Long waits for the Viking splash and for the zip line. Some of the rides for the younger kids were also quite a long wait. No problem with the roller coaster.

Twitter going mad for the Christian Wade TD last night for the Bills. It was impressive for his first ever touch.  I read somewhere that he goes into the practice squads for this season though.

Rico Henry from Brentford en route to celtic park as competition for the LB position

I watched a bit of him the championship, playing in a quality footballing team under Dean Smith.  He looked a good player and a real prospect.  He had a bad injury though i believe so not sure how that has affected him.

I could be wrong on this but i think i read that you cant use a VPN with smartiptv and the TV because you cant load it onto the device, like you would with a firestick.  You would need to apply the VPN to the router somehow.  Hope i'm not talking crap here

I'd certainly still be interested in participating as i much enjoyed it last year (first time back at in in about 6/7 years).  Obviously some of the seasoned veterans should get first dibs before me if it is only to be one league.

Been around couple of years now. Always said theyd money tbf and they have spent rightly last year or so;

slagging aside still v hard to see how anyone breaks into top 6 tho everton and leicester are gonna give it a fair rattle

Yeah they certainly will. Possibly Wolves again too but Europe may impact their season.

Ive used the smartiptv app for my LG TV for the past 2 years.  Yes the layout and operating system is completely keek but it works most of the time so i wont rock the boat.

Maybe I'm getting old but the premier league and football in general is not what it used to be. Crazy money, lack of physical challenges, dour atmospheres at fancy new stadiums etc. etc.
Give me Keane v Viera at the old highbury any day in comparison to Henderson v fernandinho at the etihad.
Slightly off topic but just giving my tuppence worth!!

Highbury the library?

I know what you are saying though.  The physicality has left the game in general i would say.

Quality is still there though.  City and Liverpool could be building a nice wee rivalry too.  All we need is for the two managers to go head to head and rip into each other!
