Racist abuse towards Brentford players the other night and attacking managers last night.
Not great from Everton fans..
manfromdelmonte staying quiet about it….
honestly been at work all day.
what happened in the Brentford game? I don't remember anything being reporter? fill me in.
as for fans on the pitch, it shouldn't happen. and the fan was an idiot. but when local fans are connected to their club it shows the passion involved.
no daytrippers from Norway there anyway

Moral high ground?

It wasn't racial abuse.

It was just the scouse accent saying black in french, similar to the misunderstanding with the "culture" in Uruguay.

The whole Everton will take a photo op with supportive tee shirts for the racist on Sunday.  ;)

A boot up the hole was the least the scrote who jibed at Viera deserved and like the scrote who annoyed Mike Tyson on the plane got a smack in the mouth for his trouble I hope no charges are brought against Viera.

Looking at this week's fixtures: Bryansford v RGU and Carryduff v CPN look to be massive games. The top 4 split and relegation thereafter is going to be a dog fight.
Ford v Rgu be interesting tomorrow night. some rumurs doing the rounds today about rgu set up. Big Deegans will be keeping a close eye

Tell us more!!
no mooney to the rescue now. down they go again

Hope wee Timmy is resting for the big game vrs Meath then off the Boston.

The Rosary is faster as Gaeilge.

You haven't heard my da going over the first part of the Hail Mary, kneeling into a chair, just a blurr,

"Hail Mary, blah blah... Jesus"

That was brilliant by Everton. Great club with a great support.
And a dreadful owner

Name one premier club who doesn't have a dreadful owner?

But yes, Usmanov (owner by proxy) has a history every bit as bad as Romans.

Massive win. Fair play, although a pitch invasion probably a bit much  ;D
oh hello it's the celebration police 🙄
it's passion, emotion, relief rolled into one. Anyone that has any connection to a team in any sport can see that.

Reminded me of All-Ireland Finals at the final whistle before the PC Brigade stopped it all. Was great to see this evening.

I don’t think it was the PC brigade, have players almost to a man not said since they were abolished they prefer it far more. They can get to celebrate with their team mates without having to dodge some pissed up yahoo in a straw hat

When some ballbag is waving his hands around Viera's head rather than celebrating his teams achievements and some Forest fan goes headlong into Billy Sharp then it's totally understandable why pitch invasions aren't allowed.

We in the GAA think we're above all that, but I have my doubts.

Never in doubt...

2-0 down at half time against a team that walloped them in the FA Cup, I'll have what you're on.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

At the risk of repeating myself:

A border poll, when it happens, will be the most seismic political event of our lifetimes. Nobody will be able to escape partaking in the debate once the referendum is called - least of all a political party. I don't think it's credible to think that a party will willingly sideline itself from involvement in the hottest political event in it's existence. If it is foolish enough to try sitting on the fence then it will be lambasted from every side, not just from one. In Britain, Labour tried to ride two horses at once with the Brexit referendum and made an embarrassment of themselves. For now, Alliance can sit on the fence today and insist that they are not concerned with hypothetical constitutional arrangements when the health/cost of living crises etc are what people want dealt with; which is well and good, but once a border poll is called then that excuse goes out the window. A referendum campaign when it happens, will be all people will be talking about and in such a climate, Alliance will be unable to pretend otherwise. Naomi Long already stated before at Féile and Phobail that in the event of a border poll, the party will campaign. She just wouldn't be drawn on what side they will campaign on.

EDIT

She's also said on twitter a number of times, that Alliance will take a side in the event of a referendum:

Alliance and anyone who votes for them are unionists and for the status quo

they always have been  ::)

not a chance do they promote a UI

an independent north maybe  ;)

If you live in strangford with little or no chance of getting a nationalist MLA elected you'd vote Alliance or at least give them your transfer.

Same as East Belfast and a few other places like north Down etc etc.

Doesn't mean you won't vote for a UI when the time comes.

Hence my interest in where Alliance are getting their votes from and who was getting their transfers as that will tell a tale

Derry 2000 Ulster Championship Hurling
Big Geoffrey McGonagle was some operator

It was some team, big Ollie Collins and the younger bro, O'Dwyer, the Biggs's not to mention some course Christians in their defence.

The census might reveal more whenever they get round to releasing that information..

Work with a number of middle of the road unionists.

The feeling among them was that they would not consider voting for a UI.

Even after bojo and the lads shafting them a number of times and showing he gives not one shite about them they still want to maintain the status quo.

Anyone that thinks unionists will change their thought process in the next 5/10 years is deluded from my experience.

Cost of living etc wont change their thinking - sure isnt the rest of the UK having a cost of living crisis as well  :o

Because they're being fed the lie that they've a better health service, education, welfare system in the North than they would have in the south and that needs challenged.

Things will get a lot worse for business if the NI protocol goes or is diluted so much that paperwork is needed to move stuff from Fermanagh to Leitrim.

St Joseph’s win another schools title - at least one school in the county is doing us proud. No coincidence their upturn in fortunes since Poacher joined their ranks.

And the Red High you forgot to mention.

Easy mistake to make.

This belongs in the Tyrone thread surely???




That picture is of The Diamond in Magherafelt. When you look on Google Maps where they are facing, it is a Union Jack flying from a lamp post.

Has a big whiff of "look at me" about it.

Or Brian Kilcline aka 'Killer' from Coventry City in the 80s/90s.

Good comparsion when you see the photo.

Mullets are back in fashion.  The player with a mullet/different hairstyle definately stands out.

Noticing it more in the country teams to be fair, the City folk are staying away from it at the minute

The tash was always a city thing though.
