From a fans perspective it should be all about winning something, finishing 4th won't give you a warm glow inside..

Yep. Iíve yet to hear a fan say, oh do you remember when we finished fourth and our profits were highest in the Premier League? Fans want trophies and the memories that go with them.

Would give up the the FA cup to get fourth surely?

Iím not sure I would.

People remember trophies rather than fourth spot. So Iíd take the cup over fourth. Plus, if Ole gets the job ft, maybe a season out of the CL will allow him to build away from the pressures of all that.

I'd bet one of the requirements for Ole to get the job full time is to finish in the top 4 and this same United board didn't take a cup over fourth when they got rid of Van Gaal.

Which one is worth more money? Which one will attract decent quality players to the club?

Future money and attracting players for another season is a side issue. Itís about the here and now and winning trophies. The fa cup is a trophy, fourth place isnít.

If I had to choose between Armagh winning Ulster, or getting to the 4th round of qualifiers. Itís a no brainer - Ulster it is.

Van Gaal got a very handy draw right through the FA cup that year. But he was sacked because he played the most mindnumbingly boring football over two whole seasons.

Does anyone really remember FA cup winners anymore? Honestly, really?

Wigan fans certainly do.

But yes, they do. Itís not as big an occasion as it was (due to saturation of football on tv), but itís still valuable.

Martial and Lingard out for 2/3 weeks, gonna have to find a plan b as it's hard to see the players on the squad that can play the way he's been playing. Unless Lukaku on the right of Rashford, it's a role he's had success in for Belgium or even Sanchez central with Rashford and Lukaku flanking him..

United need to focus on beating Chelsea in fa cup and finishing fourth. CL is gone.

These are the games I'm talking about Benny

Me too ;)

Beating Chelsea I would really like. Them backstards always seem to beat United in the cup.

OMAGH? Wtf?

They didnít have DICK as an option for a stupid person!

A dick is a dick they're not really stupid

I actually ticked eejit for stupid person but thinking about it.... an eejit is more of a fool isnt it?

I suppose Dick is versatile:

Youíre such a dick
Look at that dick
Quit acting the dick
Get down out of that, ye dick
You look such a dick
Are you gonna be a dick all your life?

And so on.

The pity is not so much that he declared for England, more that he played for Ireland and we could have nabbed him by capping him in a competitive fixture. From a purely selfish point of view, mind.

I wonder how many players in the past declared for Ireland and then regretted not holding out for the England call up when they realised they were good enough? I suspect one is Andy Townsend who recounted being in a holiday bar cheering for England against Ireland in Euro '88 and months later was togging out in green at Dalymount.

Iím glad he wasnít capped in a competitive match now. If he had been capped competitively, he would have been ďstuckĒ playing for Ireland.

The way heís gone about it, playing in Ireland friendlies, then declaring for England. Well, that just shows you where his allegiance truly lies.

So, whatever. Lets concentrate on supporting the team and the players who really want to play for Ireland.

I think it is frustrating because we had him in our hands and now he is gone. That is not right.

Itís like someone wanting to end a relationship/marriage. One canít force the other to stay.

I just donít understand why he played those friendlies in the first place. Well I do, itís because now heís an established player whereas he wasnít before. He just used Ireland to get a leg up. Bitch!

In a united Ireland which Football Association would represent the country ?

The IFA is a memebr of IFAB, it has a longer history and it originally represented the whole of Ireland.

Hmm, they had a history of picking players only from the north, even before the north existed. So they basically were the same as what they are now, representing one side.

When Ireland won the British Home Championship for the first time in 1914 their top scorers were Bill Lacey from Wexford and Billy Gillespie from Donegal

William Gillespie sounds like a good catholic name alright ;)

That's the most important thing, what religion they were.

I was just reinforcing my earlier point.
