Dire first half, dropping off and playing like the away side. Improved second half and that was Lindelofs best game since he came to the club thought he was excellent. Matic and Lukaku dreadful again, both need dropped.

Has McGregor gone into media exile since last Saturday night, I haven't seen an interview with him yet since his defeat which is very unusual for him.

Err, look at his social media before posting this.

I was referring to an interview. He didn't do the post fight press conference and hasn't given an interview since then either to the best of my knowledge which is unusual given his media profile. I highly doubt if McGregor personally runs his own social media content and there is rarely anything of any interest on it anyway.

I'd say the DUP and the hardline Brexiteers are in cahoots on this one.

Making life difficult for May on the budget could possibly push the Tories into a leadership battle and I honestly believe that the DUP think Boris or Fox are more aligned to their rationale than May.

Hardline Brexiteers can then blame the DUP for Mays departure with clean hands as they set about f**king up Brexit with a no deal scenario.

Fair point, but the DUP will know that the hard line Brexiteers will use them to advance their own cause of overthrowing May but these hardline Brexiteers are still no less likely to throw the DUP under a bus than the present government are.

Like others, I'd be amazed if Nab overturn Cross in the final. Maghery were without their 2 best midfielders yet Nab just about did enough in the semi final. Cross have stepped up a gear from the League campaign after the return of a few key players.

One month ago, I wouldn't have had Cross down as favourites to win the championship but they have been very impressive in their last 2 matches and can realistically have an outside chance of winning an Ulster championship given their pedigree. Particularly given the fact that there doesn't appear to be any one clear outstanding team in Ulster at the minute. I still think they have plenty of weaknesses in certain areas but they have a core group of about 5 or 6 players who are vital to their success.

Jesus lads let us get over the Nab first before talking Ulsterís 😂. A county championship would be a huge achievement this year and if we do that I reckon they might rest at that

I think you would have taken a county championship at the beginning of the year. However Cross have the pedigree in Ulster that other clubs simply do not and that counts for a lot. The performances of both Maghery and Harps in the last 2 years show how difficult it is for first time winners to compete successfully at provincial level. I don't think Cross will fall into that trap providing they get the job done against the Nab. Whether they are good enough to compete to win Ulster, I'm not too sure yet but it won't be for the want of resting on their laurels.

I just don't see a standout team in the province this year. Kilcoo, Scotstown would be the obvious choices but they will likely end up playing each other in the first game.

As the UK EU exit deal nears closer I think people here are still a little bit blase about the actual consequences although I do notice a lot more fear as the deadline approaches.

Once the practical consequence become evident in the buisness, farming, manufacturing and tourism sectors alongside others though, I think the DUP may face a backlash from the crucial middle of the road voters. That is,unless they have a complete U turn and push for a best of both worlds deal for the 6 counties which will not happen. Either way they are self destructing when it comes to preserving their sacred Union by being strong advocates of Brexit.

I know of several county boards in Ulster who are dishing out fines to clubs of up to Ä500 for petty technical infringements such as players not wearing correct numbers, too many personnel inside the pitch, team changes not being notified to the announcer before a match.

The same county boards meanwhile will brush violent brawls and physical fights under the carpet. Until the county boards start taking these things seriously this will continue until someone gets seriously injured or worse.

It could be that McGregors lifestyle is catching up with him. Once he has lost that edge and hunger he has lost something intangible as a UFC fighter at the elite level. His primary motivation appears to be money and he already has enough of that.

Mc Gregor was humiliated inside the ring but Nurmagomedov humiliated himself after the fight. For McGregor what goes around comes around. What is amusing is all the McGregor disciples feigning outrage at the Russians post fight antics. The irony.

Yes, it WAS a disgrace but donít be hypocrites, McGregor has acted like trash for years.

Utd 8/1 at ht, def worth a bet. That Newcastle side is pretty poor, there for the taking if get first goal.

Hope you got on. That second half is the way it should be with United. Plenty of attacking players on the pitch, absolutely no structure but it was exciting for the fans.

It has saved Mourinho for now.

Shocking, absolutely shocking. Mourinho has destroyed this team, Bailly should have given hom a mouthful after humiliating a player like that just to satisfy his own ego. Then using McTominay at centre half, it's a complete mess.

This is a business. These are business men, making business decisions. The quality of the product, is the team and its success or lack of. The Glazers bought Utd for £575m what, 14,15 years ago? They could sell the club today easily for 2 billion and quite possibly more. That's business. That's big boy business. That's all this is.
JM is harming that business. He's turning players and fans off which means less profits. He will be ruthlessly disposed of.

The share price reached an all time high at the end of August but has dropped almost 20% since then in just the space of a month. That will be the main deciding factor in any decision taken to sack Mourinho, not necessarily position in the League table, although the share price is related to this

What is Rodgers overall away record in European football, must be brutal at this stage.

The minute that Woodward and the Glazers witness empty seats and see CL qualification under threat I think Mourinho will be gone. It isn't far from being at this point even so early in the season but I reckon Europe might help him get a stay of execution for at least a few more weeks.

However, I don't see him getting until Christmas.

Even allowing for Mourinho's personality defects, I agree that the players need to take some responsibility and it is clear that nearly all of them are under performing. I maintain that they are the second best squad of players in the League behind City yet they are insulting the fans every week by putting on such timid displays.
