General discussion / Re: A United Ireland. Opening up the discussion.

Someones getting worried😄

https://www.irishexaminer.com/news/arid-40213094.html

‘In Northern Ireland, 47% still want to remain in the UK, with 42% in favour of a United Ireland and a significant proportion – 11% – undecided.‘

The undecideds will sway it.  Always wondered how many of a catholic background in the north would vote to remain part of the union.  Looks to be quite a few still. With the Civil Service being a major employer in the north, I assume this would be a factor for anyone employed by UK government when it comes to the unification. Anyone here in the civil service who would share their viewpoint?

Any boarders actually take part in this poll? How many are polled?

I did.  As previous post, 2392 polled in the north.

NL is pissed off ... I can understand why ... he's about to lose the biggest job he will ever have, manager of a club he has idolised since boyhood, his legacy is the losing of 10IAR .... and it was all so avoidable ... so yes, he's pissed off and rightly so.

But he isn't solely to blame in that regard ... when NL goes, PL needs to go as well pretty sharpish, so it's on Desmond to ensure that happens pronto.

Will Rangers be back stronger next year or have they put their lot into stopping the 10iar?

I’d say they’ll be looking for a new manager at least, given the job SG has done with them, surely he’s has to be heading to the EPL next season.  Rangers finances depend on ECL qualification, if they miss out on that, they could be in diffs.

The ifs, buts and maybes .... when many were calling the season a couple of weeks ago, I wasn’t quite sure, as I expect Rangers to drop points in the second have of the season, and expected Celtic to go on a run and put them under some pressure. But the 4 points dropped since Dubai were criminal, and are a direct result of going to Dubai ... whoever decided to go to Dubai during a pandemic need to get the door for that decision alone!  League done and dusted, sooner the season is over the better, and let Rangers enjoy their 1 in a row.

Big round of applause for illdecide and the Armagh lads on here who dug in and defended Lennon when the dogs on the street knows he couldn't manage a pub team.

Well done lads, you destroyed history for Celtic to keep your unqualified, arrogant Lurgan man in a job.

Clap, clap, clap.

I wasn’t aware that opinions on the Gaaboard held so much sway in the Celtic boardroom 😂

Is anyone optimistic about a return to any sort of normality sometime this year e.g. restaurants and pubs reopening, crowds at sporting events, theatres, concerts, reduced social distancing etc?

I was more optimistic in December than I am now given the rate of the vaccine rollout.  To me, it should be a 24x7 effort until everyone has it, but supplies seem to be preventing any sort of mass nationwide roll out.

Sooner it’s over the better, best to just write this one off once and for all.  Defending for Hibs goal was shambolic.

Without knowing the in and outs of how political parties are formed in the US, and who has the right to run for President ... would it be feasible for Trump to set up his own party and run in 2024 if he so wished?  The comment from him last night that this was not the end, this is just the beginning, was disturbing.

When they return from Dubai later this week and go on a winning streak of 19 games, inc the two remaining Old Firm games, you’ll be thankful they went to Dubai  :) Carlsberg don’t do comebacks, I know.

Local primary school took today for teachers to ‘prepare home schooling’ for remainder of the week and weeks ahead .... that preparation resulted in three website links ... here ye go boys and girls, click these links and we’ll see you in a month or two.  This and the last school year is a write off with exception of what parents are able to do with the child at home.

Will be interesting to see if NL goes with Soro or Brown.  Also whether he keeps his winning middle diamond formation in place, or change to something more traditional.  If he forsakes the current formation for something more defensive, it would say a lot about how NL fears Sevco over trusting his team to deliver.  Win is the only result that will do Celtic tomorrow and could change the course of the season in their favour.
