What do ye think?

Annoying hypocrite or spot on??

Personally, I agree with some of his analysis. Once you get past the annoying appearance and attitude...makes some decent points.
Hard not to argue with anything raised here regarding the war on ISIS.

"Bayern Munich have confirmed that former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola will take over as their manager at the end of the season. The 41 year old has signed a 3 year contract."

Going for a real challenge in Germany with Bayern.... ::)

Two fingers to Chelsea and Man City it seems....

General discussion / Drivers Knock down cyclist in London
« on: October 21, 2012, 09:58:43 AM »
Crazy stuff here. How some people are allowed to drive is beyond me. I drive and cycle in Dublin and some of the stuff you see drivers do is ridiculous.

She really annoyed me. Sat on her arse in the car instead on checking on the cyclist. I'd say she was just watching the Golf and when the Golf went to turn right she assumed the way was clear to her right.

Found this in the youtube comments.

"Driver one RJ05 EFO Chris Bassett OF Harrow, PLEADED GUILTY ( His statement was that he's insurance company told not to plead not guilty as there was no damage to his car but on seeing the video he pleaded guilty). : RECEIVED SIX POINT AND A 230 FINE.
Drive two NC04 LXG Sue Trepak of Hanwell, has pleaded NOT GUILITY even on view the video. The court case has been delay until sep 2012 due to the court has not the facility to play the video format (.MOV)."

General discussion / Teams you like to see lose.
« on: November 01, 2009, 11:12:57 AM »
OK, first off...lets not go nuts here, I know it's a thread with a negative theme, however, try to see it as when your team has a bad day and this/these teams also loose, it can salvage some satisfaction. Drawing a positive from a negative. Lets face it, rivalries exist in every sport and sometimes your dislike of a team may be due to a player or something quite trivial in reality(which is sometimes the case for me)

GAA
Galway- Main rivals in Connacht, envious of their national success , highlighting Mayo's failings

Rosscommon - In the words of Seymour Skinner..."I was only in there because i wanted to get directions as how to get away from there". Oh and rossfan is quite annoying on this too.

Soccer
Shamrock Rovers/Bohs - Teenage yob airmax brigade with inverse clothing, inverse clothing being clothes that are actually quite expensive but manage to look cheap.

Liverpool - Follow United so it's a given, as the reverse will be for Liverpool supporters. Squeaky accents, Rafa's beard and the cringe worthy version of the fields of anfield road also get to me.

Rangers - I could go on for along time.....

England - (At everything)

Germany - Hard to warm to them. Take Oliver Kahn, like cmon, the only way you could look more German would be to have a square moustache.

NFL
New England Patriots - I can somewhat understand the amount of anti man u sentiment from following NFL. Hard to support a lesser name and not dislike the team that is most successful at the moment.

Olympics
Chinese athletes. Illegal substances galore. Whats the betting that  a 7 foot tall monster will come from nowhere to deny Katie Taylor in the next Olympics.

Snooker (Yes I know Archie, he's not a team but you know what i mean!)

Jim Higgins - Mainly due to the thing is does with the cue and his chin, yes...i know it's petty
