Unconfirmed reports that Warrenpoint Town recently played a Irish Premiership game and were not able to bring a single supporter.  No, not even two men and a dog, not 1, zero, nada, zilch, nothing.  Not one single supporter.  UTV & BBC send cameras to every match without fail.

Possibly posted earlier, but it appears the IFA caused an own goal by:
a) giving the contract for Windsor Park renovation to a catholic firm
b) playing an NI match on a Sunday

And what happens next? The stadium starts to crack.

What's a Catholic firm? I work for a large multinational owned by a Jew. Do I work for a Jewish firm?

Tony Fearon looked upon Windsor Park and was turned into a pillar of salt.

In the Norn Iron vernacular, yes. The chipper I worked in for many a summer (you know the one) employed the services of a catering equipment firm called JS Massey. There is no J Massey but the owner reasoned that S Massey would give away what school he went to.

I note they are plain old Massey Catering in these more enlightened times.

Ahem... it is a well known building firm from Newry.

Great word. What other word has all five vowels in the correct order?

Last visit to Windsor Park was six years ago for the IFA Cup Final between Crusaders V Cliftonville.A large section of one of the main stands that day was flooded due to a leaking roof and the section was unusable,though there was no one preventing anyone idiotic enough to sit in a big pool of water.Embarrassing and the  big question was/is how do/did Linfield use the significant funding they receive annually for the upkeep of the "National Stadium" from the IFA?
