Who would be favourites now, any betting about? Derry hoors always hard beat.

Great tournament, been there numerous times, lucky enough to have watched us win one,  we've lost a couple of finals as well. I Thought it was powerful, but I wasn't involved in team prep and was likely well watered and fed in the clubhouse on each occasion.

The cult of Corbyn is going to crucify Labour eventually.

While I sincerely doubt he has any Brexit alternative and reckon he's winging it like the rest of them Corbyn playing his cards close to his chest is understandable - the Tories took the best bits of Labour's manifesto and enacted it.

Jesus Facebook can fair whip up a mob mentality.  Reminds of the short lived paedo hunter phase.

Didnt realise until I watched it this morning but Fielding was only a 'Regular' WBA Champion, not the 'proper' Champ.

Fall of Yugoslavia by Mischa Glenny is a good starting point.

BBC News - Kosovo's army dreamers enrage their Serbian neighbours
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46551471

Headline of story in today's Irish News - Serbia warns of armed response to Kosovo army.

I'm sure the Russians will be watching on intently.

Fielding 8/1 v Alvarez 1/14 tonight.

I'm guessing the bookies think defending Champion Fielding's natural weight, reach and height advantages are not gonna matter a shite.

Live on Sky.

Sort of missing the point that Customs for goods don't have to be conducted at the border itself at all.
A Hard Border is a bit of a bogeyman, very unlikely to see any physical infrastructure, it'll be a technical border if it comes to it. The UK has repeatedly said it won't man any border and can't be compelled to by the EU in a no deal situation, the ball will be in the EU / Ireland's court if that particular chicken comes home to roost.

Describe a technical border to me

Still waiting benny
Ah ffs, I'm making this exact point in other interactions, can you not just read them. No physical border infrastructure (Brits manning posts), technical solutions to differing customs regimes executed away from actual border areas.  These ideas (& alleged solutions found) are being discussed daily by the Brexiteers and like it's not as though them boys don't know what they're talking about ??? :P

You're listening to kate hoey and david davis a bit too much ie idiots. If it's a hard brexit or no deal there will definitely be a hard border with infrastructure. There's no way of avoiding it.
Who is going to build it when both sides have clearly said it can't or won't happen? A solution will be found if and when the actual problem presents itself. It's as likely as Trump's Mexican wall.

lol, youíre very naive. Why do you think thereís a backstop at all then? Itís there to prevent a hard border which the people at the coal face of the negotiations knew would be inevitable if there was jo agreement.
What do people think when they hear Hard Border? Brits lining the roads in South Armagh, Aughnacloy, Strabane/Lifford. That's the Bogeyman being raised, different customs regimes doesn't necessarily mean Soldiers manning borders - Ports & Airports a different kettle of fish, but there's already processes in place there. Technical solutions will be found (if required) for goods & services if they are not already there.
