I heard the Pochitino is in line to get the job in the summer if United dont get CL football next season, so maybe they dont want to back Ole if its true, the rumour said Poch will only go in the summer provided Woodward is not in charge of transfers.

Maybe I'm a bit harsh on Solskjaer and he's firefighting as best he can but I just don't think he has it. Comes out with a lot of rubbish and harks on too much about the old days. I think he threw some of his players under the bus a bit too quickly as well. End of the day he's the manager and it's his job to insist to the board what is needed player wise. Running them out the door without cover was stupid.

This is the main issue with Solskjaer. He doesn't have the clout to knock on Woodward's door and demand the players he needs. He's indebted to the guys that gave him a job the prestige of which he wouldn't have got anywhere else.

It's a bonkers situation. Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea offering up a CL spot on a plate, yet United show no urgency to go and grab it. 10 days left in the window and nothing seems imminent. Go and get a couple of players and have a proper go at fourth place. Surely the continued rebuilding would be easier from the summer onwards with CL football to offer prospective recruits. But then you remember this quote and everything makes sense:

"Playing performance doesn't really have a meaningful impact on what we can do on the commercial side of the business."

In all honesty, what is the chances of Stevie Ferguson and Mchugh taking moortown to senior football. In tattyreagh he had James Darcy, Eoghan Murray and the Harkins, in moortown he has a pile of overrated youth players

Anybody recommend anywhere with a few self catering holiday homes together for July or August for a family holiday ?
Looking somewhere in Ireland

I've done a few of these over the past number of summers.  My favourite was probably the one we went to in Courtown, Wexford.  Plenty for kids to do in the area and a great base for exploring Wexford (such a fantastic county).  No issues with accommodation either...

I think this was the place

I've booked similar holidays in Terryglass (Tipp), Enniscrone (Sligo), Bunbeg (Donegal) and Lettermore (Galway).  They all offered something in their own right.

Courtown, great shout!

Can’t wait to see the Rock relegated from D2 as usual this year. Hateful shower of bastards and them shite
I agree, Ciaran gourley will play til he’s 50

Is that you WT4E??

Damn it caught... LOL

No I only wish the best for my good neighbours this year. I will focus all my spite on those townie fcukers!!!! great to be playing them this year again but just cant believe its in Div 3 - but thems the breaks!

Youd be surprised at the support when it starts to come together.  Antrim is the biggest sleeping giant in the association, not something we are proud of, and a lot of good work is now going on to turn the tide that allows us to fulfil our potential. If Ulster GAA is looking for expedential growth then Belfast is the place to do it.

London away is a bit of a banana skin for every team in this division....gone are the days of the 8am flight over, most counties treating that fixture with a bit more respect these days! We (Antrim) host Galvins Wexford on Sunday and a good start is important so heres hoping. Should be a good division this year, I'd be surprised if any county goes through unbeaten.

Well what can I say.  I'm fairly sure we will win a few games in 2020 unlike last year.  We are missing a few top players this year but hopefully will be in with a chance of promotion.  Crucial to get an away win in London to get the ball rolling.  Galvin seems to be making waves and enemies in Wexford so that should be interesting.  I have no idea how this division will play out, it's uncharted waters for us but I am hoping it will be a short visit.  4 away games does not help.
In fairness Antrim games could be held in a phone box for all that turns up.
