General discussion / thewobbler it's time to pay up.......

going through the fixtures there i think Liverpool will realistically finish with about 80 points.
Probably not enough to challenge for the title.
That is counting on a draw in both the city & chelsea games. (as well as the united,southampton & spurs games)
win either of those though...........

No chance, none at all of hitting 80. The squad just isn't there to improve on form so far this season, and even if he's been quieter in the past few games, a suspension or injury to Suarez is enough to unhinge everything.

Liverpool won't break 75 pts. If they do I'll give £96 to one of your black armband funds.

1   Liverpool 34   77
2   Chelsea  33   72
3   Man City 32   70
4   Everton  33   66

Qualifying group stages draw taking place this morning.
24 team tournament so a big chance for Ireland to qualify.

Just seen on Sky that France will actually take part in a qualifying group but points won or lost against them won't count. Basically they will just be glorified friendlies but still part of the qualifying group...strange :o

Hope we get England and the Nordies.

Has anyone ever used this service? Are they reliable ?

I ordered an Ipad last week and set up a parcel motel account to have it delivered to.
I used the Nordie parcel motel address as it was free postage inside the UK.
I think then they are suppose to deliver it to the nearest parcel motel near me?
The tracking number is saying it's delivered but I still haven't heard anything from parcel motel.

Co Laois bog body is world's oldest

New tests on the remains of a preserved body found in a Co Laois bog have revealed that it is the oldest bog body ever discovered in the world.

The body was found by a Bord na Móna worker milling peat in 2011.

It was initially believed that the remains were those of a young female which were around 2,500 years old.
However, a series of recent tests have revealed that it is the body of a male, which dates back as far as 2000 BC.
The chemical makeup of bogs can preserve human bodies for thousands of years.

Older bog bodies have been discovered elsewhere but none as mummified or as well preserved as this example.
Archaelogists said the body which is believed to be a member of historic royalty, was almost certainly put to the sword by his own people.The body is missing its head, which has never been recovered.

His head is missing but I bet he was a good looking b**tard...

General discussion / Crime in Ireland
« on: June 16, 2013, 11:32:23 AM »
A national crime league table compiled by the Irish Examiner shows Roscommon and Longford to be the safest counties, while Waterford, Louth, Wicklow, and Limerick recorded some of the highest crime rates.

A breakdown of official crime statistics for 2012 confirms Dublin as Ireland’s crime capital, with an average of 789 offences per 10,000 population compared to the national average of 532. It has the highest rates for robberies, theft, drug, and fraud offences.

While overall crime rates were down nationally, one in every 18 people was a victim of crime last year, with one in 60 a victim of theft.

The Garda division of Roscommon/Longford narrowly edged Mayo as the region with the lowest crime rate, with an average of just 325 offences per 10,000 population — less than half the rate in Dublin or Limerick. Low crime levels were also recorded in Donegal, Clare, and Tipperary.

Limerick has the highest crime levels for sex offences and criminal damage to property, while Waterford has the worst crime rate for assaults and weapons and explosives offences.

Kerry recorded the highest incidence of public order offences. However, the county has the lowest crime rate for burglary, fraud, and criminal damage.

Cavan/Monaghan has the highest rate of drink-driving offences, while Louth has the most burglaries on a per capita basis, and Clare has the highest rate for road traffic offences.

Donegal, which has seen record drops in overall crime levels in recent years, has the lowest incidence of both theft and weapons offences.

Despite being the largest county, Cork has only the ninth highest crime rate of 21 Garda divisions — the city centre has lower crime levels than other cities.

However, despite the absence of any major gang activity in the city, Cork has a high homicide rate — 42 in the past five years.

In the county, overall crime levels have been dropping at a faster rate than the national average since 2008.

Mayo, the only county to see a slight rise in overall crime levels in 2012, has the lowest crime rate for sexual offences, drugs, and breaches of court orders.

How safe is your county?

Without a shadow of a doubt this is my favourite Golf tournament.
Tiger back on form as well for it should make it very interesting.
Wouldn't right off the hairy bollix Mcilroy either even though he is playing catmalogen at the minute.

My hard earned dosh is going on each way bets for Woods,Mcilroy,Bubba Watson and...... very small bets on Garcia and Westwood because they have to come good some day!

Also at 300/1 Mark LeishLaoisman is worth a €1 bet surely!

The man is fecked.
Love him or hate him,but there is no doubt he was a fabulous footballer.
Shame to see such a talent waste away like this. Doubt he will be of this earth for much longer.

This video of him is sad. The yobs in the crowd cheering him on are as bad.
It's all self inflicted I know but still....

At his best:

Thought it might be handy to have a thread for anyone with an interest in the other leagues outside of the Premier League.

La Liga,Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 etc etc.

Paris St Germain got lucky tonight,Ibrahimovic scoring a peno in the last minute to earn a draw.
Not the start the wanted after the money they have spent.
