Just outta curiosity what sort of money would be kept in them machines, ie how often are they filled? will they soon start to run them tighter so less money in the machine and possibly making it less attractive to thieves?

the reserve leagues a bit light this year i see. At a time when we want to give young lads games after they leave minor theres going to be periods of nothing for them at all. Pity to see that.

Is the North Antrim league running this year? i think South Antrim are running Hurling this year, maybe some SA teams playing in it instead as its a Monday night and means lads that dont get a run in the senior game or only 10-15 mins can then play a full reserve game on the monday night.

Antrim / Re: Antrim Football Thread

here's how many Belfast clubs have no minor football teams of their own:
St Agnes
Eire Og
St Johns
Davitts
St Teresa's
Gorts
O'Ds

and there may be more - sorry state of affairs and no doubt Casement related

3 Division one clubs in that list is scary, if St Johns aren't fielding at Minor that should have alarm bells ringing, one of the biggest clubs in the county and a history of great underage Success. in fairness, its hard to blame the clubs, too many distractions now a days too, ie kids would rather sit in front of a tv screen/ computer rather than play sport, minor has always been a tough age to get players out id say now its much more difficult.

There was a post from someone who was a manager (i think, or management company) who literally shed a complete new light on the whole affair and how Wade Robson and his family piggy backed off Michael Jackson for years and actually built his career off him. When you look at the facts she laid out it makes his story very hard to believe, the 2 things that really struck me when i read it having watched the documentaries are 1. When the 'This is It' Tour was being planned Robson contacted a number of MJ representatives to be involved with the choreography for the show, when this was given to someone else he then asked could he at least be one of the dancers. 2. When MJ died, he contacted representatives asking for VIP access for himself mother and sister for the funeral. Now for someone who was sexually abused by a man i think these are 2 very strange things to do after nearly 20 years. the rest of the post was also pretty revealing, must see can i find it again and post it

ps, i think Michael Jackson was an extremely weird character, i wouldnt let my son near him unsupervised but i think its pretty easy to throw accusations at a dead man, especially when you know his estate is still worth a lot of money.

Right - who broke into his house?!

Unfortunately, its pretty common these days, footballers etc houses being targeted when they're known to be playing away, think a few liverpool players houses being done while away for European games had been highlighted in the media. Clearly knowing Rodgers had just moved and a high probability there would be nobody there would be an attractive target to thieves, but knowing the Scottish media, it will be shown as angry Celtic fans

Losers on Netflix.
Excellent sports documentary series.

Been watching it myself, just finished the one about the curling, reminds me so much of the current way of Gaelic football, so many parrells with a team who just completely ruined every game they played and an end justifying the means mentality, would really encourage any Gaa fans to watch it

Finished fourth series of Breaking Bad.

It did get better in 3 and 4, I have to say. I think not knowing what would happen between the two boyos and Gus (and others) kept things on edge.

Going to start on 5 soon. Actually looking forward to see how it pans out.

Said it a few times on here, unbelievably good show, once you get her finished up, get on to Better Call Saul, another great show.

I actually just finished series 1 of Mayans MC, was a bit slow at the start but really got hooked on it and thought it was excellent, looking forward to series 2, which looks like it'll actually bring a bit more of Sons of Anarchy in to it

Who manages the abbey cbs brock cup team? Seen video highlights of a game against st pat maghera. Final score 2.1 abbey played 15 men inside their 45 for 50mibs. Damn disgrace
Jody Gormley being named on Twitter. Saw it. It looked atrocious.

Agree. I think both teams to blame. Surely Maghera should have pressed up on them and try to turn it over instead of sitting back.
And fall right into their trap? They were winning and weren’t having a glove put on them in their own half. No point in expending energy running into a 15 man blanket.

Whoever is over that Abbey team should piss off and forget about the game of football. He is not needed nor wanted. A total idiot.

No way is this the type of football we should be seeing, bad enough seeing it at county level but getting school kids to play football like that is the most depressing thing I’ve seen in a long long time so disappointing and someone should be looking long and hard in the mirror

Good to see a wee club get a result after a tough week... fair play!

Anti Utd & Celtic this man..... :o

I’m actually not anti Celtic I like to see them do well. The craziness of some supporters and this “oh but we’re more than just a club” thing gets on my wick a bit because Celtic are the same as every other club a business and a brand.

Petty.
Talking about petty, is it true that the non-sectarian (more than) a club insisted on Dominos changing the branding on their pizza kiosk at Parkhead because the support couldn't tolerate the company's traditional colours?

No, that isn't true




The reason for that is nothing to do with the colours, the Pizza boxes they give out are still red white and blue, nothing to do with supporters not tolerating the colours.

Themac... where did you get the info about the players and Tierneys response to Rodgers.

V telling if so.

Correctly.

Rodgers wanted out and took the first opportunity.  Poor show. No way Kennedy would leave after the club supported him after his career ending injury when v young.

I see dembele has had a go at Rodgers again on Twitter for not being honest!

I am more worried about who the board might sign as long term. Manager. Lennon and deila weren't quite good enough imo. Strachan was v poor.
Clarke is the man imo.

Who else is there..that knows Celtic, Scottish football and won't baulk at having no money to spend

friend sent me a screenshot from a WhatsApp, not always a great source but the guy i got it from is usually pretty bang on with anything celtic related

People seem to be missing the point with BR, had he gone in the summer, no bother good luck and hope all goes well. he has left us the day before a massive game at historically one of our toughest grounds to get a result. He also tried to take all the coaching staff with him which would have left us literally nobody with in-depth knowledge of the squad for Tynecastle or Hibs, luckily stevie woods and John Kennedy told him to do one and they are staying. he also sold us the line about how he loved celtic and this was his club, released a book on the back of it and also numerous public appearances from it, clearly now looking back it was his boosting his profile on the back of Celtic, nothing wrong with that of course, but if youre going to tell the world you are a celtic fan and then literally just leave at the first sign of an EPL club showing you a bit of skin at this stage of the season is an awful way to treat your supposed 'childhood club' it also tells a lot about the man that he told the players on monday he would be leaving but it wasnt done yet, then instead of going and speaking to the press himself he sent Scott Bain to do the presser knowing full well that he'd be asked about BRs future but couldn't say anything. Also telling that none of the players have put anything on Social Media thanking him or wishing him luck, goes to show how they've taken it, apparently he sent one of his representatives to lennoxtown yesterday to wish the lads luck etc and Tierney told him to f*ck off, tells us everything we need to know.

Anyway, Lennon to the end of the season will be grand, dont really want him after the summer just didnt think his football was great the last time near the end but possibly hes grown and changed since, would love to see someone like David Wagner come in

Sectarianism in Scotland and N.Ireland is treated like racism in England.....brushed under the carpet....sure it's only fenians, huns. orange / black b**tards and ni##ers😡
Fixed that for you there

Thanks
No probs. As you well know, sectarianism is a double edged sword in Scotland and NI.

Gerrard couldn't even call it out for what it was...why? Sectarianism in all forms is wrong....but anti Catholic sectarianism is tolerated/accepted at all levels in both N.I. and Scotland. I wouldn't expect you to have experienced the levels of sectarianism that most nationalists have, but please don't try and say one side is as bad as the other.
Can you give examples of this in NI in 2019?  As for the one side not being as bad as the other, the trouble caused by Celtic fans in Spain is a case in point.  Celtic fans play up and it's police brutality, but when the same thing happens to Rangers fans away, it's thuggery, hooliganism etc.

You serious? Celtic do have a few idiot fans (as do all clubs) but what went on in Spain this week was completely down to police brutality and even locals have said as much, spanish police have a reputation for being very heavy handed with football fans and hitting first ask questions never, same as the dutch police
