I don't really have time for lads quitting panels in the middle of the season, fair enough if there's personal circumstances there but if it's throwing a strop over not getting minutes then it's very hard to forgive.
You don’t have any time for lads quitting panels mid season and you find it hard to forgive them !!!
Wtf.

Is it because you have invested so much time into supporting them.

Crazy stuff

Are you for real? These guys are amateurs who pretty much have to dedicate their entire week to training/travelling etc. If they wake up in the morning and decide "I dont want to do it anymore" for whatever reason that's their choice. "Supporters" do not get a say, its their decision

It would take a ludicrous amount of money to make liverpool willing to sell him. Without him they'd have had no title challenge or no champions league so that is a pretty large worth in there.

This. You cannot replace him in his current form. Yes Gomez looked to be coming good before is injury and Matip had a decent 2nd half to the season  and I suppose theoretically you could use the money to sign De Ligt or someone similar but any defence in the world is weaker without VVD. Never mind the fact that selling him to your closest rival this year. Liverpool have about 3 years where this team could be at their peak given the age profile, if they are going to compete for the PL again next season VVD has to be there.

Walk in off the street and speak to one closer to the time, get all your Qs answered there & then.

Cheers Benny, yeah I think thats what I am going to have to do. I just have a feeling that booking that late on line could be a bit potluck in terms of what you get accommodation wise!

Anyone got any experience of booking last minute holidays during the summer for a family? 2 Adults and 2 kids 4&7 going early August.

The problem I have  is that because of a work commitment I do not know exactly what  day I will get off until probably 2 weeks before so my exact holidays could move by 4-5 days either way. To make it worse I have a family wedding early August so if the project at work drags on I would not be able to go at all which is the reason why I do not want to book now. Happy to fly from either Belfast or Dublin but not sure what is the best way to go about looking for somewhere decent. Money is not the concern, its more about getting somewhere good for the kids that late in the day. Should I be ringing travel agents directly when I know the dates or just look online as normal? I have had a few people tell me that normal travel search websites will only have the dregs left that late in the day.  :(

Used to use Ali Express until about 3 years ago. Used ioffer since and been brilliant. But they seem to have went legit. What sites for trainers or jerseys are youse using now?

Anyone used shootersey lately? Had problems placing order and started getting emails about paying that seem slightly suspicious/?

An exhibition from Donegal in kick outs which have become so crucial in the modern game. Gave them so much good possession. Tyrone were poor all over the pitch but much of it was sloppiness rather than being outclassed.

As for McCann, if he didn’t kick a ball all year again for us I wouldn’t mind. Trampish action that should be cut out of the game. One game ban is a joke

Sturridge and Moreno are now officially gone.

Good luck to them both. Europa league final a few years ago probably sums up what people will remember, a sublime finish from Sturridge and a defensive horror show from Moreno. People forget how good Sturridge was in 2013/14 because of Suarez's epic season and unfortunately he has been plagued with injuries since. A supremely talented footballer who is one of the best finishers in the league. If he went to the likes of a Newcastle/Wolves/Leicester where he got a run of games as a starter he would easily contribute 15-18 goals a season.

As for Moreno, what can you say.  Ironically it was only 18 months ago he was keeping Robbo out of the team and playing well before he picked up an ankle injury. Robertson came in, VVD joined and the defence has never looked back. Glimpses of talent, generally going forward but too prone to errors and never lived up to his billing. Unfortunately he will forever be remembered for his Europa League final fiasco. Seems a popular lad in the squad so wish him all the best

A lad said to me on Saturday night that Suarez made Sturridge look good but I also thought he was excellent in his own right.

5th quickest to 50 goals for Liverpool I think which given he never took penalties is impressive. Quicker than Fowler, Suarez, Rush and Owen among others. He was brilliant that year, some of his goals were top quality. There was a chip from about 25 yards against WBA (I think) that stands out

Edit: Just found it

The Big Bang Theory finished last night with a great finale. I know its not everyone's cup of tea but it has been consistently one of the best comedies of the last decade for me.

Everyone to their own I guess, what I know if I got hit in the way it has been described on this discussion board, yip I would have returned the compliment. I have no qualm in saying that. What if he had of retaliated and got sent off, big deal, one game suspension. Its called self defence. I appreciate everyone sees these things differently and everyone is different, I think its called ‘fight or flight’ in relation to how people instinctively react.

You'll search long and hard to find ANYONE who will agree with you on your opinion here

I've said on here in the past that if two guys go at it on the pitch following a bad tackle/niggling etc, thats one thing. I dont agree with it but every person can make their own decision as to whether to go toe to toe knowing they are likely to get sent off and/or hurt. Bottom line is that they are ready to fight and prepared for it. Someone who punches a player when they go to shake their hand at the start of the match and so are unprepared for it is a cowardly ****. I would have no sympathy for  that p***k if he ended up in the courts. Same as late hits/blindside punches etc.

The most important day of the year today, the shareholder's conference call, 1PM Irish time

https://services.choruscall.com/links/manchester1905163IwPSAkZ.html

It will contain this line Net debt as of 31 March 2019 was £301.7 million, an increase of £0.4 million over the year. The gross USD debt principal remains unchanged.

Who gives a f**k about the debt. It not as if it's coming out of your pocket. What's 300 million nowadays anyway? Couple of tours of China and that be covered.

Not much point in some of the lads in here crying about City and their financial outlay when Utd have been in debt for a decade. Both just as bad if we are being honest - just one is seen as acceptable.

Taking on debt in itself is not an issue. All successful companies generally use debt to maximise their returns. It only becomes a problem when the company cannot pay that debt which is not a material consideration for United. I do see the United fans reasons for being pissed off with the Glazers as so much cashflow over the last decade has gone to service the debt. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do as it is a business and the fans dont own it, the shareholders do.  Plenty of shareholders sold to the Glazers at the time because the price made sense and the Glazers were then  able to force through a highly leveraged buy out and they have made a fortune off the back of this. Thats one of the dangers of being publicly listed on the stock exchange, you do not necessarily get to choose who makes a play for you.

All done and dusted then. 5 survivors from episode 1 to the last Episode, the Starks and Tyrion.

All in all  I thought it was a reasonable wrap up. There were parts of it that were a bit "meh" (Jamie's golden hand in the rubble.. ::) ::)) but it did bring most storylines together. John killing Dany had been widely predicted (prophesised?) but I thought there might have been one major twist somewhere which just didnt happen. As an overall comment I thought the fewer but longer episodes format  did not work in the last two series. An awful lot seemed to happen off screen the last two seasons and some really good character stories  suffered as a result. Bronn and Varys spring to mind immediately.

Arya looks like she will get her spinoff at some point and the prequels should be good watching.
