Sakho was acting the eejit. Klopp was being interviewed at Alcatraz and sakho thought it would be funny to wind him up. Klopp made a pointed remark about sakho being the only person late for training and that he may be the one staying at Alcatraz...
24 hours later sent home. 
Love how he plays, don't love the attitude, and while my hypocrisy over Ballotelli's attitude should be obvious, my view is that a good team should be able to carry that kind of player upfront. You can't have it at the foundation of the team.

Warren's speech will make for some uncomfortable reading for Republicans deluded by trump, should they ever decide to read it.

Trump may have a better name calling approach but nothing concrete behind it. Will be interesting to see how he approaches any fact based allegations. Or doesn't...

I would contend it is representative of the majority view in the South.

Based on?

so another question, if Brexit ends the GFA, what would the unionist population of the north want as a next step. Reimposition of direct rule?
What would westminster want to happen next?

Apparently the two guarantors of the Agreement are the EU and the US, The Brits don't actually have sovereignty over the north, they are the de facto administrative authority and cannot exit the EU without the approval of the people of the north.

Harold,
do you have any more info about this statement? It doesn't make sense to me, I may be being obtuse

Fascinating stuff

Kenny saying that NI would be straight into the EU just like the reunification of Germany.

The country hasn't heard this kind of rhetoric about the North from politicians in 80 years!

Now here is what it gets interesting. Those three parties together represent 75% of the dáil.

Would the EU question given the projected decimation of the NI economy be enough to trigger 50% + 1?

Paddy Power. Where are you on this one?

Micheál Martin joins the debate:
.
https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/jul/17/micheal-martin-says-ireland-could-see-reunification-referendum

The leader of Ireland’s main opposition party said he hopes Brexit will move Ireland closer to reunification.

Micheál Martin said a reunification referendum should be called if it becomes clear a majority want to see an end to Irish partition over the UK decision to leave the EU.

The Fianna Fáil leader added that Northern Ireland’s 56% majority vote to remain within the bloc could be a defining moment for the region. He made his remarks delivering the annual John Hume lecture at the MacGill Summer School in Glenties, Co Donegal.

“It may very well be that the decision of Northern Ireland to oppose the English-driven anti-EU UK majority is a defining moment in Northern politics,” he saiD


“The remain vote may show people the need to rethink current arrangements. I hope it moves us towards majority support for unification, and if it does we should trigger a reunification referendum.

“However, at this moment the only evidence we have is that the majority of people in Northern Ireland want to maintain open borders and a single market with this jurisdiction, and beyond that with the rest of Europe.”

The 310-mile border that separates the island of Ireland is the only land border between the UK and the rest of the EU. Although heavily militarised with checkpoints and road closures during the Troubles, the peace process has opened up a seamless crossing between both jurisdictions.

Tens of thousands of people pass over the border every day on their way to work, for shopping or on day trips. Concerns about its status after the Brexit result – and whether free movement of people, goods and services will be affected – have dominated political debate since the poll.



During the referendum campaign, Theresa May indicated some form of border control would be required in Ireland if the UK voted to leave the EU. But just last week, Northern Ireland’s new secretary of state James Brokenshire insisted he does not want to see a hardening of the border.

Martin, a former foreign affairs minister whose party is leading opinion polls and whose backing is needed by the minority Fine Gael government, said any “new barriers between both parts of this island would potentially set us back decades”.

“The most urgent thing which is required is an immediate end to the hands-off detachment of recent years,” he said.

“It is a sad reality that our government and our media have tended to ignore Northern Ireland except when there is a crisis.

“Meeting the challenge of Brexit is a moment to end this and also to begin rebuilding public faith in politics.”

 
Martin called for an all-island response to Brexit that reaches out “to excluded groups, to show that a broader range of interests than those articulated by the dominant political parties can be heard”.

He added: “I have in particular stressed our belief that civil society must be included together with business, unions and professional organisations.”
