DCL is not a composed finisher. If he's one on one I'd give him a 5/10 chance of scoring. Top class strikers you would probably have at an 8 or 9 out of 10 chance.

Holgate gets hammered by everton fans. By all accounts he's on the way out.

Delph has been on of the worst transfers in everton history and that is saying something.  Richarlison is hard to work out. Unsure on his best position. I am not sure his heart is in it at everton. Gomez should have been so good but hasn't been. By all accounts Bernard has been really struggling with depression.

We need at least 3 or 4 new players.

All touched by the Ev.....

In a serious note though, thatís pretty bad about Bernard. Always thought he was technically good but just too watery. If itís depression you can understand how he would struggle. Hope the lad is alright

Palestine needs to develop an extensive international lobby along the lines of what Israel has

It needs to counter the lies, its talking heads internationally need to be exceptionally well versed in how to frame arguments in a non threatening way

It absolutely has justice and truth on its side and the vast majority of people internationally who have a genuine interest in this conflict and its history are on the side of the Palestinian people

Palestine's leaders have undoubtedly failed their people however, it is impossible to see progress as long as Fatah and Hamas rule the roost in the internal Palestinian political sphere

It is shuddering to imagine what would have happened in South Africa had Mandela and a couple of other key players around him not existed

Leadership matters

South Africa had different demographic proportions- whites were about 10%.
Jews are around 50% in Greater Israel.

Another difference is the history of the Holocaust which Israel uses to deflect criticism over human rights abuses.

The problem is that from the midway point of a chain up, there is a high likelihood that the person involved would have a second investment property. Anyone in that situation, regardless of available capital, is stuck from purchasing until theyíve sold up.

Currently chains break because buyers get cold feet, and because buyers canít raise the capital. But they donít break because a person who really wants a house and can afford it all ends up, is landlocked.

Ep. 5 of Mare of Easttown's a doozy.
Can you not restrain yourself from giving away spoilers?

My plan is to specifically tell you, and only you, what happens in the finale.

Surely heíll go to either United, City, Real or Barcelona? Who else is there?

100m transfer? More maybe?

I think he has the PL goals record in his sights so Iíd be very surprised if he moved abroad.

Could not agree more. The best thing the Palestinians could do is adopt the "don't get mad, get organized" approach. But Israel makes that very difficult for them by meting out injustice after injustice. The victims have a sense of helplessness and desperation. It must feel like they're a doomed people and nobody is coming to their aid. God help them.

3 times this week the UN Security Council met.

Ireland has a seat on this council, and 3 times this week, the
USA under Joe Biden, has vetoed any attempts to intervene, including 3 refusals to call for a ceasefire.

Joe Biden is giving Israel the green light to continue with what they are doing, and not only that,
the week before the attacks began, he approved a $750 million mutations supply to Israel.

No doubt those bombs could have been used in the current attacks on Gaza.

I'm sick of hearing people say "we call on the international community to speak out and take action"

The International community, under the UN Security Council, is willing to speak out, but Joe Biden says no.

Because the USA has a veto over every UN Resolution, and they use it every time when it comes to Israel.

So much for democracy, and the International community speaking out.

So instead of calling out for the International community to speak out, how about those with close links to
Joe Biden here in Ireland pick up the phone, and who were proud to support him a few months ago, and which he capitalised on,
implore him to intervene and stop this bloodshed.

They have his number, and his ear.

Why are they not calling him themselves instead of asking others to do so?

Joe Biden likes to talk about how his ancestors left Ireland in 1850, and his ties to Louth and Mayo.

What would his ancestors think of him now as he green lights the death and destruction in Gaza before our eyes?

And don't start me on the Boyle brothers, the sons of Donegal, who are the leading cheerleaders for Israel.

Before the bodies of the 24 men women and children who were killed by Israeli airstrikes, were buried on Monday, 
Congressman Brendan Boyle issued a statement saying Israel had a right to defend itself.

It's high time we called out the great supporters of Ireland over their support for Israel.

It's time to call a spade a spade, and make Ireland a cold house for those Irish loving US politicians
who currently support the ongoing genocide in Palestine.

They need called out, and those who give them a platform, need to be called out as well.

The cow can't forget it was a calf.
