General discussion / Re: Car Insurance!!!!!
« on: August 23, 2019, 05:05:48 PM »
Anyone able to offer any advice?

My son will be starting UL in a few weeks. Currently he is a named driver on one of 2 policies in my name. I had intended amending the policy to have him as the main driver so he could take the car down with him. I contacted my insurance company to see if this was ok only to be informed they don’t insure people down south for an extended period and that I would have to re-register the car down south and get insurance there. I had assumed I wouldn’t have to do this as his main residence would still be at home. Anyone had to do anything like this before or how much it would cost to register the car, a 2012 1.6 Seat Leon diesel, or how much insurance would cost for a 18 year old who passed the test a year ago?

Sounds to me like the car is only for his use at the weekend (at home obviously) and he only takes it to college once in a blue moon.....

20 years yesterday drumragh won the junior championship up in pomeroy, fantastic achievement, some good players - back when football was football. There most recent championship title.
Anything but the junior championship this year is unacceptable.

Yeah you're from Drumragh.  ::) ::)

Whats with the influx of new accounts this week? Few existing poster alter egos  trying to stir the pot with Championship on the  horizon or end of school holiday blues?

Right enough I remember the time Fergie sold Cantona for karate kicking that guy in the crowd...

 And when he let Rio go because he "forgot" about his drugs test.

Bottom line is that managers will all make allowances for their best players. Same with Suarez at Liverpool, Neymar at PSG, Ramos at RM etc. Ole was never going to come out and blame Pogba. Its already been covered that he should have determined who was the designated penalty taker (you cant have two) and that the alternative taker should only be taking it if the first choice did not fancy it. If Ole did not make it clear who is number 1 then its his mistake, not Pogba's.

Do you think car rental companies would share customer information with each other, or even care?

For example, if you were black listed with EuropCar do you think you could get a car from Hertz or Avis etc?

Eh, asking for a friend...

I'm more curious to know how you (or your friend  ;)) could be blacklisted?  I always thought that unless you actually posted the car back to them in bits I dont think they care. Those guys have things well covered so they can  extract every possible penny from you thats its not an issue.

The only thing to be aware of is that some of them operate under different brands for example I think Firefly are Hertz's budget brand

I would have said the same of Tyrone when Walsh came on.

If you mean the Tyrone struggled badly at full back after TW came on fair point, they absolutely did. It would make you wonder if there is something to be said for old school tactics!  ;) ;)

I don’t think he is as good as made out either. Still decent but not the best about or anything.

Not too many dubs on a lot of these teams.

Who is a better full back than McNamee. As an Armagh man, I wish he was from Armagh.

I can't think of any top class fullback with any county.

Its a role that has changed massively since the introduction of the sweeper. Used to be one of the most important positions on the pitch. Had to be strong, good under the high ball, quick and able to defend from infront with forwards leading both directions. I remember an old (school) manager of mine roaring at the corner backs that they only had to run one way i.e towards the sideline. If a corner forward won a ball inside they were liable to to hooked! ;D

Darren Fay was probably the best I remember watching live. Owens from Fermanagh was excellent over an extended period as well and I think Seamus Moynihan had a couple of outstanding seasons when he didnt play CHB but I would be hard pushed to name many specialist full backs at that level more recently.

The modern game means that the FB is just another defender who's primary aim is to stand the forward up until the blanket arrives and then support the runners out of defense. Interesting that Kerry defense struggled badly against McShane's more traditional Full Forward approach for long periods last week.

Drumragh is only about 6 miles to Fintona whereas Killyman have to travel well over 30 miles. If they wanted to play this game under lights could they not have used Stewartstown in which case Killyman would only have to travel about 6 miles but Drumragh over 30 miles. Why do Drumragh get the much shorter trip here?

The fact its a double header with Aghaloo/Drumquin probably came into it (although that might be giving the county board too much credit!). No reason why it had to be a double header so could have been played at 6.45 somewhere like Pomeroy/Carrickmore

County Board having an absolute mare at the minute... must have been on rip all week cause big Eunan getting hitched!

Strange way to handle the Junior Championship with the preliminary round being played on the same weekend as the 1st round. Doesn't make much sense? But then again not many of their decisions lately have.

Agreed, but I assume they want to get things rattled off now, especially Div 3. It does raise the question will the remaining first round game involving the prelim game winner be shoehorned i midweek or something? Giving clubs 7 day notice for a championship game on a Friday evening is not the best approach either but I suppose it is the same for everyone.

The positive is the three lads all look very sharp!

The midfield isn't looking good, but it never really looks good. Fab is a bit down, but I'm not worried about him (and I'd make him lead peno taker). Hendo is playing as well as he can play, so won't complain about him only being average. Had hoped Ox would regain his form quickly, but that hasn't happened yet. And Keita the fecker back injured. Milner not going well, although rarely looks good alongside Hendo, but he might finally be going towards the other side of the hill. Gini is a feckin waste of space. Hiding again when the going is tough. I really dunno how gets away with it. Continually putting himself in a place where he can't receive the ball, and then pointing for the ball to go somewhere else other than him. I know he was amazing v Barca, which makes it more frustrating how little he contributes normally, does my head in!

Defence is all over the shop. Word is they're trying to play a little bit differently than last year. Hopefully we'll cop on soon that last year's defensive plan was the best one!

Almost everytime Adrian makes a save it rebounds out to a dangerous position. That will definitely cost us goals. Still, prefer him to Mig or Karius. Pity Kelleher was injured at exactly the wrong time.

Southampton was always going to be dangerous given so close to Istanbul, and now ET added to that. And them getting hammered on Day 1 was not a good thing.

Salah needs to get the head up more. In the two games so far he has taken on shots when he should have passed. I know its hard to criticise him given his record but if he was a bit more unselfish (a la Bobby beside him) I think it would benefit the team. For Mane's first goal Mo would probably have taken the shot on with the keeper at point blank range rather than poke it to the side.

I hope the defense will sort itself out and revert back to last years approach. Midfield slightly more concerning but Henderson has been excellent so far and hopefully Fabinho will press on. Disappointed not to see a bit of Keita last night, hope the injury is not too serious.

Was one foot on the line for that last pen?? ;)

https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/uefas-var-penalty-rule-clarification-16758358

The replay showed that the Spaniard crept forward from his line and saved the penalty - leading to calls from fans of the London side stating that the spot-kick should have been re-taken. The UEFA ruling states: “The goalkeeper must have at least part of one foot on/in line with the goal line when the kick is taken; cannot stand behind the line”.

Now ESPN are reporting that UEFA Chief Refereeing Officer Roberto Rosetti said before the Super Cup that “goalkeepers will only be penalised by VAR for leaving the line if it’s a blatant and clear violation of the new law.”


UEFA are not helping themselves as regards VAR. The foot on the line/encroachment is a matter of fact that can addressed using VAR much like offside but they are now adding an element of subjectivity. I personally disagree with the rule as I think it gives to much advantage to the attacker but if the rule is there then apply it. Same applies to encroachment at penalties (Pretty sure a Chelsea player was in the D when Jorginho scored in extratime). Yes there would probably be a lot of retaken kicks initially but players would not be long adapting.
