I'd just love to know what the geniuses on here would think Corbyn can do. Or should do. His opponents are tearing themselves apart over an issue created by them for no good reason. Should he risk the exact same thing happening to his own party by coming up with a plan that he cannot implement at present as he's in opposition? I don't understand the logic here. Labour need to get back into power. Things will be better for everyone bar the Boris Johnson/Jacob Rees Mogg brigade when this happens.

Even with the Tories tearing themselves apart MS I still have my doubts that Corbyn would deliver the Labour party No. 10 if an election is called.

De Gea, Shaw, Dalot, Smalling, Matic and Martial haven't travelled to Valencia.

All to start at the weekend then or are there a couple of knocks in there?

Did you ever see a more pitiful performance from the Leader of the opposition. The PM, is wounded, lying prone in front of you and all you he had to do was kill her off. Just offer a genuine alternative. But no, he was as weak as piss. Utterly useless. Never mind TM it's time he fucked off as well.

Completely agree, just watched parliament today and heís offering no logical alternative. Never thought I would see a Labour leader behaving like a Dupper.  The whole thing is like a political alternative to the Jeremy Kyle show, only difference is Kyleís quests come across more classy.
Europe must be laughing itís nuts off.

Corbyn is well known for his Euro-sceptic views so it should be no surprise that he has no alternative as he would like to see them crash out of the EU.

All the Corbynites saying he would have negotiated a better deal, if his performances throughout the referendum campaign and in parliament are anything to go by then I very much doubt he is capable of finding his way to Brussels never mind doing anything different when or if he got there.

Tories about to knife Tessie? 48 letters in apparently.

Err..when I said 'knife' I kinda meant using one of them plastic knives that they give you at a takeaway, the sort that shatter whenever you hit a tougher bit of chicken or cod. Looks as if the Tory 'hard right' are going to get a good routing in this. PPs has Tessie at 2/7 to survive.

Have been keeping an eye on the odds, started at 1/4,  lengthened to 1/2, then 2/7, 1/8 and back to 1/3 now.

She has 100+ MPs out in support so I'd have thought she's as good as home

It is a secret ballot.

No mention of St Galls Intermediate Hurling campaign?

Played Queens and Jordanstown lately, yourselves on the 15th and Castleblaney at some point, its going to be tough for us Nial Burke and McInerney provide the backbone of this team we play. they'd be the best team to come out of Galway I'd say as Galway have never won at this level before, We've about 5 players out with injuries at the minute but all should be available for selection come the 19th of Jan..

We'd need to be at are very best and Oranmore have a stinker to get over the line, but these lads have been down that road before so we'll give it a lash.. It could well be the last go at this level, lot of lads nearing the age of hanging up the boots
What's the pipeline like?

Great work being done, and things were going great but we pulled our minor hurling team this year!! and that team would have been decent enough, we've low numbers hurling and I honestly think we are going backwards.. We've a huge think tank approach this week at the club, people looking to sit down and plan ahead for the hurling future.

We've a great wee under 12 team that won the Belfast Nipper Quinn championship this year, they also won the football, so we'll see how these lads develop and progress into the adult teams..

Senior football or senior hurling! the struggles of a dual club

Young lad Austin on that U12's is a fine young hurler, will be interesting to see how he develops through the years.
Has a bit of athleticism about him.

We've had a lot of players like him over the past few years and lost them, now should he continue to improve then that team should improve with him, kids learn off each other and thats a positive going forward..

 hopefully that team sticks together, we've won Nipper Quinns in the past lately and that team ended up not fielding at minor! The same minor team that got to the county final! And beat by a dual club who won both!


Keeping them away from football is the key  8)

Is this not part of the problem that these tournaments are built up to be a big deal and then past feile nothing seems to matter.

It hardly helps the mood when everyone knows the manager is a goner but the board are waiting for it to get worse before sacking him.

I think this is the position that most fans have reached too.
Realised the manager is a sititng duck, realised that a good bunch of the players wont be at the club in the long term, so they are waiting to see to the next move really.

Anyone attacking Nicola Sturgeon hasn't got a clue. One of the best politicians around and has the best interests of Scotland at heart. If only we had a few like her in NI we'd be a hell of a lot better off.

Whoís attacking her, you sound like a paranoid unionist.
Just trying to reason with her motives.

You clearly don't understand. Her motives are quite clear. If you haven't the mental capacity to understand them then that's for you to fix.

ďTaken out of the EU against our will, taken out of the single market and customs union against our economic interests...thatís the cost to Scotland of not being independent.Ē

Ok mister smarter than me how does the above statement correlate with gathering up a possy and collaborating with the DUP to train wreck a deal thatís better than a hard Brexit for Scotland.
Instead of getting personal why donít you answer my question. Did I attack Her
Are you Sryefus by any chance
The Dunning- Kruger effect is strong in you.

Not that difficult to get actually.

The current deal keeps NI effectively in the SM and CU, therefore making it a more attractive place to do business. Setting it on a direct competition pathway with scotland.

I understand that part fine but my question is, will a hard Brexit be any different to Scotland. Sabotaging the current deal makes no more difference to Scotland than it does to Wales
Itís this Deal or no deal
Scotland should be pushing for another referendum then they can join the EU and look for a similar arrangement with England

Think its more in the land of the blind the one eyed man is king. Rather than see NI have any advantage they would rather bring the whole deal down and be fighting at the same level.

They had their chance with the Indy ref and messed it up.

Sounds like a bollix alright but at the same time shows how tight clubs have to be with their administration. Certainly for the like of AccessNI there are valid forms of ID that must be submitted. Do you blame the player or do you blame the administration process? Or both?

Not like they are dealing with a cub here, the lad is regarded as a senior player here so would know full well the rights and wrongs of this and cheating the system.

It'll all come out eventually. Not for public consumption.

Finally a LG man showing a little restraint and respect.

Pity fellow members had not shown the same to volunteers ensuring that their U16s,  yes U16s, were able to play their match.

Fair play SIE
you sir are a slabber who loves to slabber without knowing anything about what heís actually slabbering about.

No need for the Sir but thanks.

But good to see the humility that we have come to expect  ;)

aye a 30 strong mob you say?  the young mans father approached the ref after the ref left his son in tears being his usual self.  the mother being her usual self also fell wasnít pushed.  a lot about nothing really.  :o

You mean Loughgiel being typical Loughgiel at the moment.  ;)

Don't think any sort of mud slinging by LG can excuse their behaviour on this one.

Time for them to clean up their act and show some sort of leadership from within the club.
aye for nothing ever happens your end  ???

Plenty of things happen for.most clubs it's how you react and learn from it that shows true colours.

Accepting no responsibility and blaming everyone else seems to be the norm. Why change now eh!

Genuinely what is the difference in a team that last year conceded 28 goals in total in the league and this year has conceded 21?  Was De Gea just supersonic last year and this year isn't?  In comparison,  Liverpool and City have conceded 5 each and Chelsea 8.  Obviously we have made defensive signings.  Spurs haven't though and have only conceded 10.  Have the players regressed so badly in 12 months?  After 13 games last season United had a GD of +22 and had 29 points, this year GD is -1 and 20 points.  That's a huge swing.

Don't think it is down to De Gea, but I would like to see a stat on the number of chances conceded in these games compared to last season. I'd wager it is up, so law of averages says thats going to result in more goals.

I also think JM played a bit of silly buggers with the defence in his petulance at not getting the centre half/s that he wanted over the summer. Now he has at least gone with a settled pairing which is something at least and he is getting more out of Lindelof because of it.

Who's giving him a bye ball? The world's about opinions, and some on here feel that maybe he's not the root cause of all United's issues.

Personally if I thought getting rid of him in the morning would make things better I'd lose no sleep but I don't and ain't going to say so just cause it's the easy thing to do...

It is a lot more complex than just sacking the manager.
At the end of the day it is a results business like it or not and at the moment as I have kept refering back too, the team finished second behind City last season.

City are getting plaudits as one of the best sides in Europe never mind the EPL. So that means under his guidance they finished ahead of Liverpool and Spurs who everyone raved about all last year. So I can see why in some sense he is aggrieved at how he is treated by the media.

The style of football etc is another debate entirely.
