There is no competition, Rangers are just a neccessary evil to be humbled on the way to another title.

Tyrones Own, obviously everyone here knows that they are going through one hell og an ordeal, but they ordeal is of their own making, they went out and left 3 children under the age of 4, unattended while they wined and dined with their friends. It is neglect on an epic scale and one way or the other it has led to the disappearance of one of their children. Now we can all argue til we are blue in the face about how that child disappeared, but if they had sat in the appartment or got a babysitter, this may not have happened.
5iveTimes, the neglect has hapenned. After that it is a soap opera and a big part of that is that many are not shy to to jump to speculative opinion of gymnastic proportions.

For my part I have tried to avoid the opera, I only heard the parents in an interview early on and I did not hear the desperate pain or anguish in their voices. I thought that this doesn't sound right at all. I know what its like to be culpable in a kid's dissapearance for a couple of hours and it's quite normal for the first time to be a gibbering wreck in the face of your worst fears. I found their detachment from emotion to be remarkable. It's up to the local cops to investigate, I can live with not knowing or not being sure of anything and postponing speculation until evidence is established.

I didnīt notice the origional Spiders question on that thread last week.
I am sure Vicks (all in one solution) will work, spread it around the floor are where the feckers do their socialising, Spiders taste with their legs. They will soon skadaddle out there.

If you are not into Vicks (possible previous bad experience) then on Arachnophobia they were spreading Lemon oil, same principle as Vicks.
 spread around the floor where the Spiders do their leg action.
Alternativly the wily old husbands excuse for avoiding the final solution to the spider infestation is that Spiders are good because they kill the flies. Well get rid of the feckin flies and the Spiders will die off.

The Denmark Spain game will be the one to determine who qualifies in second place, probably will be the game of the group Looks like the odds are on Spain and Sweden to go through.

Ni had their chance against a weakened Iceland team. I donīt know about the subs that Nigel brought on, they all look the same type of player to me, small, run around a lot and give the ball away. After NI equalised, Iceland fought back and gained enough control to neutralise any threat of losing the game. And the earlier entry of (an unfit) Eidur Gudjonsson dropping in that famous hole added a bit of class to the Iceland midfield, I presume thats what Nigel had his thoughts on.
My prediction on the outcome of this game was razor sharp, that NI would be doing well to get a draw. In the last 15 minutes of the game Iceland were the more determined team, they wanted the victory more.

I enjoy the Moore documentaries, doesn't mean I have to believe them.

Any fool could see that they are propoganda, simple and effective.
How to make a political point in the simplest manner that the image remains with the viewer.

Personally, I thought that Docu made at the time of the attempted coup on Chavez was superb.

5iveTimes posted in the IFA thread

"create a new range of public order offences at sports events.

These would deal with unauthorised pitch invasions, offensive chanting, missile thowing, bringing bottles and flares to grounds and ticket touting."

Not much there for Ulster GAA to worry about, except maybe pitch invasions. But arenīt GAA pitch invasions authorized?

Trust you Evil Genius to pick up the wind up baton and run with it.
FFS, cop on and ignore it
Have you no football talk?

Not quite a "rode their luck" scenario. 
Spain couldnīt convert possesion to chances, Iceland had 3 or 4 clear cut chances to win the game. Spain were relieved at the end to gain a point.

Looked pretty wet on Sky Sports for NI at their training session.
Weather forecast for Wednesday is cold, windy and with heavy rain -  turning to sleet -  ouch.
Eidur Gudjonsson is back but hasnīt played in a while. Iīd assume he was targeted for the NI game and wasnīt risked against Spain. There is another Gudjonsson, Joey, who is pretty good. Hreidarsson is the Kevin Moran type rock in the defence even if he is the LB.
NI better try and make hay down the other flank. Hreidarsson sets up the counter attacks, if Gillespie canīt tackle, yer fecked.
I saw some time ago that Iceland were not even favourites with the bookies.
If NI get a draw they will be doing well.

Did you see the 11th?
 talk about a goalie with butter fingers.

The NI team seem to have more pride in their shirt than the RoI team do at present.
It all pales in comparison to the pride that the  Monaghan team have for their shirt :)

I hear that Healy is out or at least a serious doubt for Wed evening according to Skysports
latest flash just in type of news item.

I suppose that means that NI will eventually find their level, way down at the 6th seeds grouping in UEFA's list.
