How many emigrants plan to return (even in retirement) to Ireland?

nobody with intelligence anyway

This post didn’t need time to age badly.

‘HD Ready’ used to be a common euphemism for 720p resolution whereas ‘Full HD’ means 1080p.

It has fûck all to do with the existence or lack of any type of tuner.

Be interesting to see how many resources the Guards throw at the investigation.
The vigilante’s phones would have pinged off the nearest mast at 5am on Sunday morning. And there’s bound to be a CCTV camera in Tulsk and Strokestown, say at the local credit union.

But that takes time & money to investigate and there’s been many cutbacks in rural policing.

You’ve been watching far too much CSI.

Brave new Arsenal my arse.

This new era has been complete media hype. Arsenal are exactly where they were last year.

No they're not.

Arsenal were four points off fourth at Christmas last year.

They’re three points off fourth this year.

Facts are tough bástards for the Wenger OUT crowd to get around.

The Jets and Jaguars defences made Sanchez and Bortles look component but it ended up being totally inconsequential. Whatever a Bears team did or didn’t do in another era has no bearing on this season. Trubisky was a bad pick at a terrible price.

It’s so good to see Katie back on form after looking so disillusioned at the end of of her amateur career. She’s only embellishing her status as the GoAT at this stage.

Realistic chance of Dublin a v Dublin b league final at some point

People that say this pretend like the people proposing the obvious - splitting Dublin - somehow didn’t foresee this potential outcome, or that the idea is so unpalatable that it would be preferable to allow a totally broken system remain in place where everyone and their dog knows no one is going to beat Dublin and that if they do it will happen so rarely to have no benefit to the health of the sport.

People and players have given up on this sport at IC level in droves in recent years. The alarm bells are ringing everywhere but in Dublin clubhouses and Croke Park boardrooms.

Dortmund and Porto are the only teams Utd would have a hope of getting past. The rest will duff them

Liverpool to draw Dortmund

It would take someone who hasn’t even checked the form Dortmund are in to suggest they could lose to United.

Well done.

That was a surprise.

Was it though. That Barça starting lineup looked more Stoke City than Galacticos. And Inter have been too piss poor for years to expect them not to have trouble with PSV.

If he hits in the USA - the financial gain long term will be enormous and it wouldn't be completely mad (if successful) to see an Irishman manage the USA National Soccer team, if he made a name for himself in the MLS2 or whatever this outfit league is called, it's not beyond realm of possibility he'll be at the MLS sooner than many think.

Jimmy has the head screwed on, Derry City/Dundalk....all these teams will always be there. He makes it in the USA he's set for life.

Steady on there

Do you know who this is? He's an Irishman who has been a USL coach for 4 years now - who has won the USL Championship for the last 2 years.

Nobody has a clue who he is - that's the point.

This is the United States - its not essential that you actually are the best at what you do as long as you have some sort of personality / PR / selling point.

The SB Nation documentary on the history of MMA, Fighting in the Age of Loneliness, is excellent.
