Not a lot of Irish fighters out there to get you excited at the minute.  Frampton is gone, Quigley's career seems to have disappeared and Conlan has not really excelled to the levels first thought.  The McKenna brothers, Paddy Donovan and Kurt Walker seem to be the next prospects in line.

Joe Ward was a good amateur but his career has been stop start. Irish amateur boxing seems to be in a good place though and no doubt someone will come through in the next few years but I haven't a clue who that is going to be. Disappointed with Sean McComb so far.

Forgot about Ward, he probably is the best of the lot.  Watched his fight there a few weeks ago, hopefully he kicks on now.

Going back to the Welbeck penalty claim, had another look at it and don't see how it wasn't given - looked a clear penalty.

Lingard on form for West Ham tonight. Do Man Utd cash in in the summer or take a chance on him ?

Cash in. No debate.

United need to invest. Apart from Fernandes, its basically been the same side for two seasons. You look at the business done last summer and none if the purchases have been a regular in the team.

Herring isn't great but Frampton doesn't throw enough and his footwork isn't good enough to get in close to Herring.

Herring hasn't really fought any top fighters though and has been beaten twice, the big thing in his favour is his size but if he does struggle to make the weight you would hope that catches up with him in the later rounds.  I hope Frampton wins but if I had to put my money on it, I would go for Herring on points and mainly due to his size.

Jim in right, something in us that likes to bring successful people down.  I honestly couldn't say anything negative about Frampton.  Good role model and represents this country as good as anybody can, especially from the perspective of both sides.  This is worth a watch, only 20 odd minutes:

I would say his stock has dropped to be honest.  He might win but lets face it he hasn't had a proper fight in over 2 years and his last big victory was a while back now.  Herring is big but is definitely beatable though.

Re the sectarianism angle.

Would he have had anything on him that would have identified him as Catholic? Would it not have been more likely that there could be racial element to this rather than sectarianism?

Would have had the same thoughts on that but I read something before about him being identified as being associated with his school therefore that's where the sectarian angle comes in.

Would the police, in this day and age, try to hide a serious incident that led to a death if the motive was related to sectarianism?

Between Fred, McTominay and Matic United have some poor midfielders.

So Line of Duty is back.

Thoughts?

Enjoyed it and was very much a scene setter with some pointed change from end of last season. No big Wow moments but can see why it 7 episodes with last nights not moving at rapid pace.

Highlight was hould your whist  ;D

would the GB audience need subtitles for phases like that I wonder   ;D

LOD points you to one dodgy suspect and then the twist comes later when we find out there's someone else pulling the strings.

Same plotlines seem to be developing again.

Shows have become predictable by trying to become unpredictable.  Highlight someone as the bad guy and then suddenly there is a twist and the least likely is actually the bad guy.  Obviously now that I write this, I know rightly that in 6/7 weeks we will find out that she was in fact the baddie.

I actually cringe at some of these wee sayings they make Dunbar come out with, going out of his way for trending one liners.
