No doubt this Friends episode will be next




Should the film White Chicks be banned too?

Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

McKenna was no more a prospect than Mulgrew, Coney or O'Neill were.  The odds were on him going more like them than becoming a superstar.  Tyrone's style doesn't lend itself to allowing players to flourish.

Come off it.

McKenna is by far and away the biggest prospect since Cavanagh.

Coney relied on his size at underage level and that didn't carry through to senior. O'Neill didn't have the physicality to make it.

McKenna is the complete package, he is an absolutely formidable athlete and a fantastic footballer too.

Very, very few cut the mustard over there. The only two that succeeded over there and returned to GAA briefly were Kennelly and Clarke. Kennelly won an all star and AI with Kerry in his one year back and Clarke brought Down to an AI final, won and all star and probably should have footballer of the year.

He becomes the main man for Tyrone if he comes home.

This Coney size thing is over-rated too.  Its not like he was fetching balls from the sky 10 times a game etc, he was slightly above average height  but he wasn't exactly massive.  When you look at Aidan O'Shea, that was a man playing amongst boys that year.  His physicality was something else.  What stood out from Coney was his skill on the ball, not his size or strength.  O'Neill was brilliant in the 2010 All Ireland team, and both he, Mulgrew and Coney had as much, if not more, hype around them probably than McKenna, as they carried teams to the ultimate prize.  As for him coming back, he has been programmed differently now and won't be the player he could have been.  Most players come back different, look at Mooney - main man on the Down underage teams and scoring machine, now a wing back who is average enough.  Same with Clarke, was a completely different player when he came back, not as potent.

Clarke may have been dogged with injuries but he was an absolute joy to watch in 2010 when Down got to the all Ireland final. If McKenna comes back and reaches anywhere close to that level then Id be happy enough.

But Clarke came back a different type of player. He was a big scorer all through underage but didnt have that when he returned. Mooney was a game winner before he went, he isnt that anymore.

The US have made a balls of dealing with COVOD-19 but so have Ireland and the UK.  Nearly sure the UK are worse-off statistically and Ireland are essentially the same as the US.

Shaw is very poor going forward as is Wan Bassaka. Fred, James and McTominay are very limited too. Tuanzebe or Bailly need to be in there.

Anyone seen the Outsider?
Started watching last night, instantly hooked. Similar to the Sinner

Enjoyed it too. A few episodes too long but still very good.

Things like this drive me mad.

Regardless of his extra curricular behaviour, Kevin Spacey was one of the best actors in history, but Netflix and co have tried to airbrush him from their portfolio.

All I want to do is watch KPax, and I cant. Sad face.

K-Pax - one of my all time favourite films.

You could go all day with this. Did slaves not build the Pyramids - should they be knocked down?

Thought it was another tabloid hoax until I saw that it was the German police making these claims; straight away it got my attention as Germans are nothing if not thorough and professional and they would have a lot of credibility, a lot more than other cowboy countries around the world. They apparently have a fair bit of evidence from one of the vehicles although no DNA. Expert's, including Gamble, believe that they have more than they've released but are simply trying to jog memories and get independent corroboration as they cant really be seen to be putting words into potential witnesses mouths.

Thought the Departed story was fully told in the film myself.  Decent film but is definitely over-rated.

What happens now if you are looking to go to a grammar school with no family ties or other children in the school?  No point in applying?
