Re: Irish Unity

The biggest irony in it all is, if Arlene had 2 brain cells to rub together - she'd have negotiated a deal where this place was best of both worlds (in fact, this was the deal that was on offer about 18 months ago that she rejected out of hand). It would have secured the economy of this place, the ...

Re: Irish Unity

Irish Unity ..that old chestnut. An Island never that has never been truly united from the FirBolgs to the Gaels ,Vikings ,Dalriada,Normans ,Saxons and all manner of Colour between them. A unity of hearts must occur before fiscal unity. That wont happen anytime soon, I fear unless We abandon the cu...

Re: Irish Unity

I've heard people talk of some sort of federal arrangement but that would keep a parliament of sorts at Stormont and that's the last thing we need. I agree. If we're going to have an agreed new Ireland, at least let's have one Parliament with some grown up politics going on inside. I don't fancy be...

Re: Darren Cave

The thing about the troubles is -- it was a cause that was pointless and still is -- for the simple reason too many people in Northern Ireland are reliant on the state in terms of the health service ,benefits, jobs,and pensions . The Irish Republic couldn't afford the problems they would inherit an...

Re: What annoys people????

Liam Neeson is an example to many. He highlighted previously prejudiced ideas that he is now looking back upon with disgust. He is demonstrating the ability to reflect and change his mindset and behaviour. If only more people could do likewise. Yes a fair play to the man for saying it, things like ...

Re: Where’s Baggy????

Dave, unlike the wee baby Jesus, I am real. Well, I say real but in reality I’m as real as that stupid phrase “a real Ulster fan”, for of course BaggyTrousers is not my real name. As your loon in the crowd once told you, my real name is Dave Hedgehog, a strange one I suppose but we don’t choose our...

He thinks he was getting stick from the crowd because he was Irish and scored a try against us. No mention of what he did to Mike Lowry. He says it was noisy when he heard 'it'. Someone came up...

Good call. Match isn't until Saturday and 4 days in Leicester would put your head away. :thumleft:

Re: Ulster Vs Racing 92 Sat 12th Jan @ 3.15pm BT Sport 3

Ive been wondering how Zebo could have heard a single voice in a noisy 18000 crowd. That is possible but unlikely without thousands others hearing the same. All the coaching staff were on that side also. Agreed. A player on the touchline could quite easily hear a comment shouted by an individual in...

Re: Ulster Vs Racing 92 Sat 12th Jan @ 3.15pm BT Sport 3

I have a few comments on the Zebo situation (and in no particular order) that I wish to share and may I apologise in advance if I have repeated myself earlier.. I note that some of the comments on this forum are now being quoted on social media as further proof that we are what Zebo tells the world...

Re: Ulster Vs Racing 92 Sat 12th Jan @ 3.15pm BT Sport 3

Lazy cliché alert............this game will depend whether Racing 92 fancy it. They are the better side, but if they come over all French and start shrugging their shoulders etc, then Ulster can get the win. Ulster in the past have raised their performance levels for games like this. How many Frenc...

Re: Bluenoses vs Ulster

I was disappointed to see so few Ulster fans in the crowd on Saturday. There's usually a good number down for this fixture, regardless of how many reserves are playing for the two sides. Maybe it's the sterling rate being affected by Brexit. I used to go to Dublin regularly for these fixtures but h...

Re: Bluenoses vs Ulster

The consensus in the Horse Show after the game was that the Leinster fans were marginally less smug and insincere than usual, largely based upon their favourable comments about our “youngsters”. Mind you, they appeared to be under the impression that Shanners was fresh out of 6th form :scratch: The...
