A countryís government will say they are so happy being in the EU, but the people think differently. The Lisbon Treaty being the perfect example.

For all this EU arselicking from Dublin, a lot of ordinary  Irish people donít like or trust the EU.

Fake news.

Well of course people are going to think itís great being in the eu since the brexit vote, and the scaremongering thatís happened since. If people are told something is bad, the vast majority are going to believe it, even if itís complete bollix.

So, having experienced the last two-and-a-half years, your considered conclusion is that the 92% of Irish people who want to remain in the EU are wrong and we should embark on an exit programme?

While being in the EU has its advantages, itís not all itís cracked up to be. It gives with one hand and takes with the other.

Irish people voted down two referendums regarding Europe, and were forced to vote again. So you canít tell me Irish people arenít just a tad cynical when it comes to the EU.

Just for clarity then - you ARE proposing, even in the light of the experience of the last two-and-a-half years that we should exit the EU? And the mandate for that would come from where?

Where did I say that?

From a fans perspective it should be all about winning something, finishing 4th won't give you a warm glow inside..

Yep. Iíve yet to hear a fan say, oh do you remember when we finished fourth and our profits were highest in the Premier League? Fans want trophies and the memories that go with them.

Would give up the the FA cup to get fourth surely?

Iím not sure I would.

People remember trophies rather than fourth spot. So Iíd take the cup over fourth. Plus, if Ole gets the job ft, maybe a season out of the CL will allow him to build away from the pressures of all that.

I'd bet one of the requirements for Ole to get the job full time is to finish in the top 4 and this same United board didn't take a cup over fourth when they got rid of Van Gaal.

Which one is worth more money? Which one will attract decent quality players to the club?

Future money and attracting players for another season is a side issue. Itís about the here and now and winning trophies. The fa cup is a trophy, fourth place isnít.

If I had to choose between Armagh winning Ulster, or getting to the 4th round of qualifiers. Itís a no brainer - Ulster it is.

Van Gaal got a very handy draw right through the FA cup that year. But he was sacked because he played the most mindnumbingly boring football over two whole seasons.

Does anyone really remember FA cup winners anymore? Honestly, really?

Wigan fans certainly do.

But yes, they do. Itís not as big an occasion as it was (due to saturation of football on tv), but itís still valuable.

Martial and Lingard out for 2/3 weeks, gonna have to find a plan b as it's hard to see the players on the squad that can play the way he's been playing. Unless Lukaku on the right of Rashford, it's a role he's had success in for Belgium or even Sanchez central with Rashford and Lukaku flanking him..

United need to focus on beating Chelsea in fa cup and finishing fourth. CL is gone.

These are the games I'm talking about Benny

Me too ;)

Beating Chelsea I would really like. Them backstards always seem to beat United in the cup.

OMAGH? Wtf?

They didnít have DICK as an option for a stupid person!

A dick is a dick they're not really stupid

I actually ticked eejit for stupid person but thinking about it.... an eejit is more of a fool isnt it?

I suppose Dick is versatile:

Youíre such a dick
Look at that dick
Quit acting the dick
Get down out of that, ye dick
You look such a dick
Are you gonna be a dick all your life?

And so on.
