General discussion / Re: The OFFICIAL Liverpool FC thread

If Liverpool get £14 million for Borini they're going to get relegated because that would be every scrap of luck used up in one go.
Swapping Borini for Remy plus £7m is serious business!

In the lead up to the last local elections, Labour claimed that over 90, 000 jobs had been created and over 4,000 (I think) new classrooms had been built.
I tee no evidence to suggest that the former claim is true but I'm certain that the second one was not. I contacted some former colleagues, members of the INTO executive to check and, as expected, I found out that the INTO at least knew nothing about any major building initiative.
If If there had been any significant increase in ether number of classrooms in the second level sector, I would have heard about it. I didn't and so I take both claims to be bogus.


There has been 3 phases completed of the Schools PPP Programme ( out of 5), i don't know how many rooms have been built but i remember something about the scheme catering for 20,000 pupils ( a taxi man must have told me) . I would consider 27 schools to be a major building initiative .
Even if 27 schools have been built, that's a long, long way short of 4,000 classrooms which is the point I've been stressing.
Maybe your taxi driver might tell you where those schools have been built next time you talk to him. That's more than was built in any of the Celtic Tiger years.
Lar you are the one who said 4000 rooms, can you verify this somehow? i only stated that there is currently the Schools PPP programme in place to build 27 schools of which 3 phases of 5 have been complete. In my mind this is a major building initiative. i dont need my taxi driver to tell me, its not too difficult to find the schools

mayogodhelpus has been awol for a while.
Anyone got an idea of what happened to him?
Seems to have deleted his account, more than likely he will be back again with a different name...........for the third time.

The diving is a bugger? It's a fecking disgrace. Cheated a team out of a QF place. You can't defend that. Seriously, a 4 month ban.

This is the second time you've posted this. It happens, he should have got one earlier. These things have a way of evening themselves out;-)

if that wasn't said tongue in cheek, then i think its a ridiculous statement. 

Cheating is worse than what suarez done. Robben is a total and utter cheat, should be banned each and every time he does it, along with all the others who do it no matter what club they play for.
What a ridiculous statement ! It was a clear penalty, it was a stupid tackle by Marquez and he definitely caught Robben who most definitely made the most of it. Robben should have had at least one other penalty as well.....

Apparently raping a young woman on a bus is ok as long as there is multiple rapists (inc the driver) but a kiss on the cheek? clean fcuked!
These people need shot!

The man is a felcher and has had a guinea pig up his arse, no charges preferred but a kiss on the cheek, stone the mofo!!! Th
This needs to go on the WTF? thread!

Lennon gone. Anyone see this happening?

No, but what is left for him to achieve there?

He is young and ambitious and would probably relish a new challenge anyway.
Probably wants to manage a bigger club in a better league..
Maybe someone like Norwich City in the Championship.......?
Did you really have to post that? Never once on this Board have I seen a Celtic fan, and by that I mean someone who solely supports Celtic, make a derogatory comment about Liverpool. And please don't come back and mention Tony Fearon as he's a Spurs fan
You may forget about trying to be decent here!

This little guy gets his kicks/thrill out of putting his weird spin on things and trying to look down on others as it seems to be the only thing that can make him feel better about himself!

Sure he was criticizing people that but gold jewellery at Christmas and labeling them 'chavs'
You wouldn't mind but he's from fecking Laois and now lives in the biggest chav underclass place in Meath!!

Don't know if I'd want Henrik.
Wouldn't think Coyle was that bad an option!
Moyes would be alright!

What about glen hoddle - some of the things he says are spot on !

Some interesting view points there LB

Person Of Interest is my favourite at the minute along with GOT, the Blacklist is brilliant too.  I see Revolution has got the chop, been really boring lately so no surprise.  Ray Donovan is bound to be back soon though, looking forward to that.  Have watched a few Intelligence and Believe as well, ok so far but nothing special.  Falling Skies is another that has sort of fallen flat, hopefully this new season will be better.  Hannibal should be interesting too.
How the fcuk do you have time to watch all these programmes??

General discussion / Re: Man Utd Thread:
« on: April 24, 2014, 09:35:26 PM »
Judging by the market it looks like Van Gaal is the strong front runner for the job which is a safe pair of hands in the short term. The problem he will face is that the sqaud needs a complete immediate overhaul. Those who aren't good enough to play for Man Utd are Rafael, Smalling, Anderson, Cleverly, Fellaini, Buttner, Nani and Young whilst Evra, Vidic, Ferdinand, Carrick and Giggs are past it.



But, but, these lads won a PL title last year pulling away, they don't become bad players overnight and now with Moyes gone, I'd expect these lads to flourish like they did under Ferguson and win the PL back next year with a good 10 points to spare.

Got to be saved for next year  ;D
Fcuk me ,but you are a gimp

Delighted to be a shinner this week. Things in britain are going nicely with the state visit and marty has proved a leader and statesman putting his country before his own feelings. Meanwhile at home mary lou continues to excell in the media on her public accounts role. Plus john o dowd understanding and handling of eduacation makes him the most popular minister with teachers.

Roll on the elections hope this good work translates into votes

Incidently did I read that greece have sold government bonds at a lower interest rate than ireland  so much for endas "great work"
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-04-10/euro-area-bonds-advance-before-greece-ireland-sell-securities.html
 Greek 10-year bonds fell for the first time in thee days, with yields climbing five basis points to 5.94 percent after declining to 5.80 percent yesterday.
The Irish 10-year yield dropped three basis points to 2.92 percent after declining to 2.894 percent, the lowest level since Bloomberg began tracking the securities in 1991
Im sure you will be as quick to priase Enda for his 'great work'.
