21 times including 5 sub appearances i see. Didn't realise he'd played so much. Only 1 goal though.

I see some boy in the derry thread saying they are average and it is just an unofficial tournament  ;D

I would expect to see them maybe move the coach through with them to senior and bring the specific system etc they play through with them. I would be surprised if in the next few years they aren't pushing on a bit in senior.

Wind up merchants wouldn't put much stock in that . . . in fairness to Bellaghy it's a great achievement for them they would have been close to winning it last year as well only we managed to beat them in a very tight game!

I noted someone comparing it with Glen, Bellaghy's pedigree and the fact that there would be more focus and less distractions in the area may set them apart. Glen's biggest problem which Bellaghy will have as well is having to bring through so many young lads at one time. Slaughtneil were a great example while they had the nucleus of a good senior team they were able to bring through 2-3 lads from Minor teams that were competing with Glen at underage level which gave them a massive headstart.

Derry have a few good teams coming through the next few years hopefully we can get them to play for the county and get a bit of buzz around the county team again!

The reason I mention Glen was their series of wins at this level NEVER materialised at senior as they don’t have the pedigree like Bellaghy, bringing a squad of young lads straight on to senior won’t help..

 we won five in a row at minor and Under 21 but could only bring on bring on 2/3 per year although we could have brought more on based on their skill level but it worked for us. The problem was we lost a lot of good players who were very decent but we’d a winning formula with the squad we had..

St galls did reasonably big bang approach did they not? They had sean burns, mcrrory and kennedy in nets to name a few older ones but that first championship team had a load of young guys in it i thought? When i say a load i mean close to double figures? I would be interested to see the lineup but doubt I could find the program.

It's hard to see how they could get 19 million or close for what he has done so far and he must be bought purely on promise. I wonder are there quite a few clauses for appearances both at club level and international level?

Mental money and fair f**ks to them.. heard her speaking and she seems really nice and very deserving... hopefully they’ll be well advised on their money and have a happy life together!

I personally wouldn’t tell a soul if I could help it

I understand in euromillion you are contractually obliged to be open about your winnings
You're not. Purely choice, sure by their own admission the Moira winners said they considered keeping it private. One of the top 4 Euromillion winners opted not to have their identity revealed. I would say the Euromillion people strongly advise revealing your identity as it is great for their brand and a lot of people for resasons of pure vanity would love people seeing how rich they now were.

I think in the national lottery anyway you get a lot more for going public. It's maybe the same here if the contract thing is wrong.

Is a ticket deemed a contract?

I wouldn't say anyone is deserving of that amount of money but fair play to them and it's nice to see decent people win it and not someone like a mate of johnny adair's.

Yeah with better cover for him and a replacement for henderson they are not too far away but don't think those 2 are the level of city players.

An interesting post. I think it takes a few experienced heads in a senior team to really expedite younger teams. Cassidy is a superb footballer and would have helped gweedore a lot. Tyrone are a good comparison too. Youth plus dooher, canavan then a few others like lawn and holmes helped.

If the likes of fergal doherty were still playing he'd be the perfect boy to bring these guys through. Glen maybe haven't had heads like that. Yes at management but maybe not playing level.

Correct Itchy.

Ah sure if it's done by a third party then O'Leary is innocent of it all then ;D

Well fair play if you have the courage of your convictions. How come the head of Aer Lingus, who have also been cutting costs, is never held up the same scrutiny despite numerous strikes over the years. I can only think of it being down to the brash way O Leary deals with questions etc.

There are many forums etc round pilot rights and then the paying employees out of the country he chooses so they never get healthcare contributions etc just isn't very nice. Then there's stunts like his taxi stunt , paying to go to the toilet etc. I think it's how he presents himself to a degree. He doesn't really care what people think about him whereas others try to present something different. What you see tends to be what you get there.

The jokes about the pint and extra for the glass etc etc are always about him and not about easyjet / aer lingus etc so I guess he has made a name for himself.

You have a point on why him and not other ones as there are possibly other people who mask it better than he does but he's just not a man who conducts himself in a way that I think merits any respect.

I have seen easyjet do the wheelchair thing too incidentally. I did witness speedy boarding go on before wheelchair users. I don't think it happens with them any more but I saw it on a flight from liverpool about 10 or a dozen years ago.

Yeah - O'Leary treats all his employees like crap and tries to squeeze as much out of everyone as possible while flaunting workers rights everywhere. There is absolutely nothing to admire about him. It is no coincidence all the strikes for first of all pilots and then other crew now.  Horrible horrible man.

Tover your story is very interesting cheers for that.

One thing to pick you up on... You have repeated a few times now about not planning to go back to prison but it wasn't that bad or anything like that. It isn't my business what you did but most peoples definition of "wasn't that bad or anything like that" wouldn't be something which would get you put in prison...

(P.S. Sorry not trying to have a go it's just the lingo gets me a wee bit as someone wanting to /having turned themselves around.)
