General discussion / Re: Bloody Sunday killings to be ruled unlawful
« on: March 14, 2019, 05:23:19 PM »
Stupid question and I’m sure a million people will jump down my neck but here goes:

If we re-open and investigate army personnel for incidents that occurred during the troubles, what if  the authorities re-opened and investigated incidents involving Republicans during the troubles?

Is this not a two way street?

Do you honestly think if there wasn’t evidence to charge any Republican for a Troubles related incident threat it wouldn’t be prosecuted. This prosecution is the minimal amount that should be happening. These were state sponsored killings with direct cover ups. The notion that this may open up the door for Republican prosecutions is naive.

Some boys having a shave , he’s only just started , has about 1/3 of it done , gets a phone call and gallops out the door wiping the remaining shaving foam off with a towel

Would never happen in real life.

And is clean shaven underneath. That must be veet rather than shaving foam...........

I woke up one night after a feed of drink when I was a student...remembered very little.  There was a lovely ladies cream smell so I thought I must have struck gold and got a bit of action... I got up and looked in the mirror....action alright....Veeted the eyebrows clean off me the b**tards did!

Veet smells far from lovely IIRC.

Reminded me of these reviews on Amazon. Still funny after all these years.

It might have been Imac but whatever it was I had no eyebrow!

I'm glad to see no one has descended to fried bread yet. You'd be as well just getting a bottle of oil and pouring it over the plate.

Ehh hello....what do you think they do with the Soda bread

Toast it?

f**k that....fried in the left over grease from the salty bacon...only job!!!

7 people have already voted for beans. That's an example of everything that is wrong with this board right there. How can you debate with people who think beans belongs on a fry?

I love beans but never on a fry. Every weekend I get a fry pack from the shop and it’s bacon, sausages, veg roll, black and white. I would get a soda, mushrooms and pancakes. Fried Pancakes in a fry are amazing, with crispy bacon and runny fried egg....hmmmm....reckon that could be tonight’s dinner!!!

There's a woman that's too hot even for the DUP to handle! That's some achievement. Jamie Bryson "legal counsel"? That's a new one....what connection would he have with the law, other than breaking it regularly?

He has studied law ye know....like many of the Republican prisoners on his long hunger strike he consumed as much law as he could....until the chicken Biryani arrived ;D

GAA Discussion / Re: Shot Clock
« on: March 04, 2019, 03:06:59 PM »
Dinny I get the idea of bringing change in to make it better but I think that a shot clock isn't the way for it.  As someone who has played basketball and still do as best as I can it is easier to implement in it as it is a transition sport over short distances and is more 'play' orientated.  Smaller numbers and more control make it easier to manage and implement.  I think the idea of reducing numbers might work and I have always been an advocate of 'team fouls' using the basketball analogy.  If a team can be punished for cumulative fouls then there is a huge incentive for teams to actually go at each other and attack....8-10 fouls a half....21 yard free....

The biggest curse of modern 'football' is the inability of players to actually tackle and defend as individuals and simply to rely of tactics to be their defenders.  I have seen sweepers being played at u12 blitzs for christ sake!  I think that the whole idea of 'zonal' stuff and no 'back pass' over the half way line a la basketball is the only way to regulate it.  More importantly though there needs to be a mindset change and focus on coaching the skills better at a younger age.  The game is being slowly killed and there is a real ostrich in the sand approach.

We have a new winner.

0-2 to 0-1...

I can totally understand the way Abbey were set up,  Maghera scored 6-32 in their two games before yesterday. Were abbey supposed to go man to man and get slaughtered?

This was an U15.5 colleges game not an All Ireland final. The coaches have a responsibility for player development as much as winning. There are plenty of past Abbey players on here who I'm sure are disgusted by this shite. People need to catch themselves on.

Oakleafgael, can you tell me the development points the Abbey could have gained yesterday from a hammering by Maghera? And let’s remember the Abbey could have exited the competition yesterday when they would have received a hammering and this competition exit would have prevented them getting another game in the competition for further ‘develoment’.

A load of shite ....simple as that. As someone who proudly played for the Abbey I’m ashamed by it. When I think back to the few sessions I did with the great Gerry Brown and his emphasis on simple direct and efficient football....he’d be turning

Get out where broken? Relieved of all coaching duties obviously not sacked?

Coaching children. IF they could be sacked that out be a bonus  ;D. Kidding of course but this is become too widespread and is damaging to the games.

Half that team will be Armagh lads

Doing what they are told. It’s a f**king disgrace. Simple as that. I am proud of my time playing schools football with the Abbey. We played great football, honest and hard. This shite is a stigma on the game and whoever coached it needs kicked in the hole and told to get out. Disgraceful

Why did other clubs stand back and let Southampton buy Virgil Van Dijk for an absolute steal....

A real mystery....

There were plenty on here saying he was overpriced.

The term "absolute steal" certainly wasn't being used.

Talking about his move to S'hampton...

What was the fee- £10m?

Thats an absolute steal.....

Edit, you're talking about him transfering from Celtic to Southampton and not from Southampton to Liverpool.

Sure Scottish football is shíte and there would have been a serious risk for any of the top teams to take him at that point in his career.

In fairness VVD was not ripping it up defensively for Celtic.  He was 24 when he moved to Southampton and still hadn't played for his country and had only made a handful of appearances at underage level internationally.  It really was when he went to Southampton that he pushed on.  For instance in comparison to Sakho when he was bought he had made around 170 appearances for PSG, was captain and had represented France numerous times and he was younger than VVD was when he joined Southampton.  There was only £5m of a difference  too between the fees.  When VVD joined Celtic he was the same age as Sakho was when he joined Liverpool and had played 100 games less. 

VVD is coming to his peak and the purchase of him and Allison has shown a shift in the clubs transfer policy....ready made stars to go to the next level.  The club is at that stage now and can buy 2-3 players over 2 transfer windows just to freshen the squad and I really see that as the way to freshen and revitalize the squad season on season.
He's not as good as Boyata though....

I rarely watch full games these days but caught most of Liverpool vs Bayern recently (and CL final last year) and if the dogshit football Liverpool are serving up is capable of winning the premier league or champions league then I'm glad I don't waste my time anymore.
Matip would find his level in the Beazer Homes league, Keita is an overpriced Jimmy Bullard and the front three don't look like they have a braincell between them and rely on running like headless chickens who occasionally get lucky.

You expect them to roll over the likes of wolves 5-1 or whatever with the amount they spend.

As Alan Partridge put it - Moribund.

Yeehaw Stallion!!!
