Personally, I've refused to get involved with much discussion online concerning COVID-19 as there's little point listening to nearly everyone involved but I will say this - as someone who has had episodes of bad/poor mental illness for more than twenty years which have included hospital admissions, I'm seriously fucked off by the usual suspects suddenly now using mental health issues as a tool concerning lockdown measures just to help satisfy their passive aggressive selfishness, whom in "normal" times (and perhaps even now) would treat such people as lazy fruitloops whom needed nothing netter than needing pulling themselves together, maybe with a good few slaps across the face. The same kind of **** whom rails against foreign aid saying "charity begins at home" when if they saw a homeless person on the street they wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire.

Excellent post. 100%.

Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men

The best movie baddie of all time IMO

The problem Utd still have is winning games at one nil! They still give away too many cheap goals, while they have put in some decent performances they’ve drawn some games where they should have been outta sight

even as crap as Brighton were the other night, that Utd team coughed up some decent chances for Brighton the better teams put away.

There's still a bit of work in progress with this team.

United are most definitely a counterattacking team now and they're pretty good at it, but the amount of possession afforded to Southampton at Old Trafford was unreal. better teams than them will make many more chances and punish that defence accordingly.

Still a good bit away from challenging for the title IMO.

Two centre back required for a start.

Agree that they are a good bit away from a title challenge, but i dont think they need two centre backs. 1 top class one with a bit of pace would make a world of difference.
Lindeloff,Bailly, Maguire all good enough to be a partner for a top CB, but a pairing of any of those 3 together isnt good enough.
Shaw isnt good enough to be a regular first choice IMO, despite being decent from time to time.
They also need an upgrade on Matic. His form has been OK of late, but they need someone of the ilk of the Matic from 4/5 years ago.

"If Messi did this, they'd be raving, Bill"

I'd be a bit concerned about Gomez as well as Lovren TBH.

VVD's greatest strength is that he makes the rest look good. He'll need wrapped in cotton wool if the title is to be retained.

Don't get me wrong, I do think Robertson and TTA are good players but their ability to bomb forward is based on they've VVD to cover their holes if they get caught out of position.
Gomez is light years ahead of Lovren.
He is obviously not in the same class as VVD but still a very good young CB.

Deadly game. The dead heat. The blazing sun. The hill. The smell. Hog Donnelly with the game of his life. Majestic.

He only came on at half time too IIRC?

Can't decide on air source heat pump or traditional oil boiler

I like the idea of having lower heating bills and having one bill for heating and electric but is the additional cost worth this and has anyone had any experience with these. I am obviously getting the sales pitch from a couple of companies.

Need to make up my mind as NIE need to price how much my connection will be and this will be a factor.
I am considering exactly the same thing myself.
I like the idea of the A2W but unsure if it makes sense from a cost point of view

Have Liverpool suffered less from injuries than City this season?

I think the big thing is they have had VVD, Salah, Firmino & Mane available for the vast majority of the season.
They have been able to deal with all the other injuries pretty well, which I would say has been on par with any of the other PL clubs injury list

I remember thinking Crespo's goal was a thing of beauty the touch and turn by Kaka and the absolutely inch perfect pass so close Carragher probably felt he had it and then the sublime finish I think it's one of the all time great cup final goals!!
Its a wonderful goal.
I remember it going in and thinking, 'this team are on a different level'

Bound to be a lot of young uns who would fight the corners of Lebron & Kobe.

Kobe? Not a chance.

LeBron? They'd be well entitled to.


You could make a case for Lebron just on the numbers he regularly puts up over the course of his career, but MJ was a level above again IMO, he transcended the  sport

Why didn’t Sigurdsson get off his ass?!

You got away with one today. That was a perfectly good goal that should have won the game by Everton. He wasn't blocking De Geas view and Maguires touch played him onside.

How did Maguires touch play him onside?  He was still offside from the initial shot.  Player interfering with play by sitting in front of the keeper, easy call really.
I can see both arguments tbh, its one of those really freak instances that leave it very hard to judge.

Assuming we aren't all wiped out by the coronavirus, when can we expect to be presented with the league trophy and when wil the parade be? Will it be the last home game or do they present the trophy as soon as it's mathematically impossible for anyone else to win it?

Trophy presentation will be after the last home game (Chelsea), which is the second last game overall.
Have to win it first
4 more wins

See McKenna looks to be going back to Oz. I think it shows how valued he is over there, if they are making so many allowances for him. Hopefully we see him in a Tyrone jersey again at some stage.

I think the club would cater for any player if they where feeling homesick and wanted time off,every player is an asset to them so they need to keep them right to get value for the wages they pay, esp in the current world with all this talk of health and wellbeing etc

You have a good chance of seeing him back in Tyrone colours but not for another few years, but by then what will he have left? Better concentrating on what we have and where we go from here, starting with Dublin on Saturday night. One week in Tyrone football seems like an eternity these days.

Is Healy Park going to be playable? Is the contingency to move it to Edendork on Sunday?

Don't see why Healy Park wouldn't be playable this weekend....bit of rain forecast, gives for a crappy enough day Saturday with winds. You would imagine Edendork already have had the call.

I think you've answered your own question
