Riddle me this and riddle me that.

Say what you mean and mean what you say!

Hasn't a clue what he is on about on any level of this discussion. Therefore refers to innuendo and riddles trying to hide this.

Most people are aware of the mistakes made around the closing of the ground, which to some extent could have been avoided.

The debate has moved on now and it should be about how we now get this project moving and get the groundworks moving. The damage is done in terms of access etc which I argued about at the time, but we need something in place so we go ahead with the overall plan.

Up on till Utd scored the second Newcastle were the better team

This has been the way of it in a lot of games, poor sluggish starts and then a bit of decent play to get them through.

Hard to understand the defending at the moment, it is going to come back and bite them before the end of the season if it isnt sorted and sharpish.

Yeah it did.

Pretty much all issues resolved with the residents from what I understand.
Simply now down to a shortfall on the money. So the GAA are going to have to pony up some more cash.

It was handled appallingly from the get go and Antrim were right royally shafted in the process and I am pretty sure will continue to be in the future when it comes to access to the actual place.

But it is at the stage now where this is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be repeated to get a state of the art facility for our games in the second city. So it is a matter of suck it up and show some commitment to people of Antrim and the North and get it done.

Have to agree with you on that DR. I cant see it ever happening. I cringe reading articles from Stephen McGeehan from Ulster GAA on the subject. What a mess Ulster GAA made of it all from the very start. In their strategic plan released just yesterday or the day before "there is renewed optimism work will finally commence in 2021". Even without the pandemic there is only 9 months left in the calendar year, and with all the various obstacles in the way what sort of idiots do they take people for ffs. Antrim should be calling this out!!!

Antrim should have called it out from the very word go and IMO have been treated poorly partly due to our own short comings at the time. The only winners in this so far are St John's.

I think it will be built, the GAA will find some money and so will Stormont, might mean a sop payment to the IFA and Ulster Rugby to balance things out but if that is what it takes then they will do it.

It was billed a fundamental building block in the renewal and growth of our games in the second city, so don't forget that element in all the bullsh*t. So if that means the GAA need to dig a bit deeper then that's what they will need to do, for too long they have neglected Belfast so they can look at it as retrospective payment if it makes it more palatable.

Sounds to me like a bit of horse trading in terms of who is going to meet the shortfall, or more like where each party is going to meet on it.

I always laugh when I hear Manchester United fans talking about the United Way and getting Manchester United to ‘where they belong’.
There is no United Way, it’s a myth. What there was though was a Fergie Way.
Where United are now, and I don’t just mean their current league position, where United are now as a club is exactly where they have been for the vast majority of their history.
That is, not winning leagues and maybe competing for one every now and then and winning the odd domestic trophy.
Before Ferguson came along this is what Manchester United were, it was the norm,and that’s what they have reverted back to since he went.
So there is no United way, there is no getting Manchester United back to ‘where they belong’ Manchester United are now exactly where they have been for much of their history.
Winning league titles is an anomaly for Manchester United not the norm. It’s an anomaly that happened for a very brief period in their 140 year history.
The Fergie way was very real, the United way is a myth.
I'm guessing you have never heard of Matt Busby?

Same as the Liverpool fans on social totally triggered.

The performance at the weekend was back to the dull stale days under Ole, the team look jaded maybe the games are starting to catch up with them. Lacking a bit of spark and sharpness.

Clear foul on Lindelof for their goal, surprised that it didnt go to VAR. But didn't do enough to push on and win the game even when they got the goal back.

THE Gaa didn't ask for eLite status in the free state but soccer and rugBy did? whats that about????

I would imagine it is a combination of wait and see how things go over the next few months & avoiding any negative publicity. I think it would preferable to all to be able to open up the clubs again and get communities back to those in the fullness of time. This would avoid the fiasco of 200 tickets for games etc.

The county game while it was genuinely first class last year, now that they know it can be done in this manner they have the flexibility to wait and see if there will be enough restrictions lifted to get some level of crowds at the games.

We all know the LoI is not elite level sport, there are half a dozen or more county set ups which would put the best of LoI to shame. I think they are trying to box clever a bit here. IMO if we wait a while and get a clear picture of how the summer and autumn look, then we plan it out and stick to it as an organisation top to bottom. Get back as close as we can to the structures we are used too for all members.

I heard BBC radio this evening discussing the threats at the ports etc.  Seems very shady.

Donaghy, the CE of the council and the DUP councillor was asked to come on the show but a no show.  That tells you something.

I hope there's an investigation but who would do it?

Would it have to be a vote at council?

While they are at it they should investigate the councils links to the DUP especially the person you refer too. The whole council is rotten, yes it is a DUP controlled area, however the employed staff arent meant to ensure that equality is adhered too at every level and not to be swayed by any party of which ever shade.

I dont think attacking lorries is related to this protocol? Surely not??

Was that poor fella from West Belfast not attacked by some random scumbags - as it could have been anyone/any vehicle?

More to it than that I fear...

I've seen a lot of innuendo flying around about this incident, what is the story here?

Gaa intercounty no longer considered an elite sport.

Is the government saying senior intercounty Gaa teams can't be trusted to follow the regulations ?

I wonder what could have happened for then to come to that conclusion ......

I’d imagine the high profile incidents couldn’t have helped plus the defence been that “sure everyone at it, they just didn’t get caught” wouldn’t have gone un noted.

Seems to be be that they aren’t a bubble in itself - playing/training in a group and then going into other bubbles such as work/family etc.

Not that I think these incidents affected the decision materially I think it is an absolute disgrace that these counties and managers have acted in this way.

Instead of reducing the ban for the 'Down' manager they should have been throwing the book at him and using it as an example. Disgraceful behaviour from someone who should know better.

Fred was really wasteful on the night, the fact that he is busy means he is on the ball a lot but takes an extra touch when a quick forward pass was needed.

I thought the game was crying out for DVB to drop back into Fred's position and start to dictate the game from there, has better vision and passing range than Fred. DVB was being crowded out in the middle and was getting lost in the game.

Good result in the end with a significantly worse performance than the weekend, but will take it and move on.

Maguire does get a touch from fans when things don't go well and some of it is deserved.

He could be more aggressive defensively in the air from set pieces, but teams know that he is decent in the air and they plan accordingly. His pace is his main issue for me and this is negated when he plays with Eric, but OGS seems to prefer Lindelof as a partner. If this is the case then they need to find full backs who can sense danger and dont get played around, Shaw has a good head for this AWB doesn't.

It was obvious early in the game that the danger was in the channels either side of the CB's and that is how they got in for DeGea's howler. Teams will have now worked on this as a way to get at them, so there needs to be a tweak to sort this.

Bailly has been available for only approx a third of the games played in his time at Utd. He would seem the best fit with Maguire but can you blame a manager for not staking too much on him when he's always injured. He goes into the past year of his contract this summer so I'd say he'll likely be sold.

Diallo with the match day squad today, I wonder will he get a few minutes.

I think there needs to be serious questions asked of MEA council, let's not forget they have form here with that said party and high ranking officials in the council.

So once the investigation starts with Poots I would be throwing the leadership of the council in along with it. IMO it is no coincidence that the council reacted in the way they did.
