If I was a Fermanagh fan I'd be very disappointed in the referee.

Donegal players are playing the referee and he is caving into them. Lots of diving and surrounding the referee over some innocuous tackles, the yellow Cullen got was ridiculous and it was all because Ryan McHugh started jumping up and down in front of the referee waving his hands.

What a pile of shite.

Fermanagh should be content enough they didnít have to play almost the entire match with 14 men.

Shocking stuff.

Donegal need to speed things up, get a few one-twos going, get up the field quicker.

And get Jamie Brennan on the end of things. He can get the shot away in very tight quarters.

The Boys from Killybegs?

Stop MMurphy and Fermanagh win......simple!!!

Let's hope they triple mark him. Should open up a bit of space for the likes of McBrearty, McHugh, Brennan and so on. :)

No word at all here about Donegal and Fermanagh. We're all busy with more important things I guess!

Looking forward to the game, as always with the first run out in the championship, even if Brewster Park has a few bad memories for us. Last time I was there (been in the US quite a few years now) was for the 2003 meeting which was down there with Crossmaglen 2010 for shockingly poor Donegal performances and one of the worst games I've ever seen.

I guess we are warm favourites for this, but I don't expect anything close to the one-sided affair that was the Ulster final. I think if we turn up, we should win by three or four points after a tight enough game. You never know in Ulster though!

Be interesting to see what team lines out for us. With McBrearty back, assuming he starts, we have a lot of options up front (MacNiallais's absence notwithstanding), although it would be hard to see Oisin Gallen being squeezed in too (might find Ulster Championship football at bit different to the league too as a young lad). Maybe they'll play Murphy centre forward and go with McBrearty, Gallen and Brennan, but where do you put Niall O'Donnell then, another young lad who had a good league?

Any sign of those 'justice for Suarez' t-shirts lads?

if you want to talk about a club with absolutely zero morals




Didn't agree with that at the time. Leave your whataboutery at the door.

Dalglish was misguided and the club as a whole handled that issue very poorly. Henry/Werner had to intervene themselves in the end and force them to draw a line under it and make Dalglish and Suarez apologize after the Old Trafford handshake snub. Personally, I think it was a factor in Dalglish getting the boot after the 2012 FA Cup final.

Whether or not the people within the club genuinely believed Suarez's denials, they should have just put out a statement condemning any kind of racial abuse and publicly supporting Suarez, pending the investigation, gagged the players, and had the PR men and powers that be handle it. Easier said than done, perhaps, with social media, but anything would have been better than the amateur hour that unfolded.

Think how decisively and effectively United dealt with Cantona in 1995. Fair enough, it was a more straightforward, black and white issue, captured for all to see, but Liverpool could have still controlled public statements much better.

Ashamed of nothing, offended by everything

folks, I give you Liverpool FC

by the way, ye lost the league at Goodison

United and Everton fighting it out over who lost Liverpool the league. Fitting for the 2nd best clubs in each I suppose.  :D
Its f**king hilarious  ;D

Its 20 years since Everton won at Anfield.

In that time they've beaten Liverpool three times in the league, once in the FA Cup.

No wins of any kind since 2010.

You have to allow the poor lad something! ;D

I guess thereís not as much respect among players as weíre led to believe.

But then you also have to have the team dynamic and solidarity first and foremost.

At the very least, a bit silly of whatever City employee released it.

I doubt if many Liverpool players are too bothered. And who knows, maybe the Liverpool players gave it loads last year at the Etihad after knocking City out of the CL.

If someone had said at the start of the season that Liverpool would only lose one league game but not win the title.....you would have been checking their medication. I think they need a De Bruyne or Hazard style midfielder to overtake city. Same two battling it out next season....unless Spurs add to their squad. I hope Liverpool win the CL final to have something to show for a great season.....but Ihave a nagging feeling that Spurs will nick it.

Champions League final is a toss-up, but I donít think too many Liverpool fans are downbeat at this point. Club will surely strengthen, and they are very well placed to compete at the top level in Europe and England for the next few seasons.

So go ahead and gloat gobshites. Most of us are feeling very positive about Liverpool, something that canít be said for your own club. 8)

Shocker! Rival fans cheering on another team thats stopping their own team from winning! 

Liverpools and Utd's fixation on each other is funny and depressing at the same time, some of the stuff on social media would actually make you laugh out loud but the sniping is ulgy.

The standard this year from the top two has been impressive, but some teams also getting their act together and the points total next year wont be as high.

Good luck in the final to both teams

Yes itís sad and depressing. Even worse when itís going on in this part of the world.

Totally agree.

Just as bad is being viewed as a bigot because you support your gaelic county team and don't support an English soccer team and say 'we'.

Some has been called a bigot for that??

I would take the banter from most supporters, but Liverpool fail to realise continually is that they finished behind this outfit last year.

9 points ahead of them this season though.... ;)
16 points
19 points
26 points
31 points.

United have been crap since they last were champions in 2013.  Despite that they've won 2 more trophies while Liverpool won none.  ;D

You are boasting about Man u winning a 'B' European trophy - made up for teams who finish 5th and 6th in the League or 3rd in the Champions League group stage. The other Competition Liverpool started Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Moreno, Fabinho, Milner, Keita, Shaqiri, Mane, Sturridge in their one and only game in that competition this season. A 'C' domestic Trophy!

If you are boasting about those two trophies, your standards have dropped!

I donít think many intelligent United fans are making that boast.
Just to state. It's 3 trophies since Fergie left. Not 2. Fa cup lge cup  europa lge.

Doesnít really alter the point though.

Best premier league team would be Utd, just on titles that is

Most successful club. They had multiple ďteamsĒ that typically evolve and refresh over 3-4 years. This city team (2017-19) has bettered their league achievement s domestically by a distance two years in a row.

Be more specific in your post, the best team the premiership has seen (taking league titles as a measurement) is Utd

I think the point he was making was crystal clear.
