    And judging by the current England squad, losing Lancashire players would have the bigger impact than losing the sole Yorkie (Danny Care, by the way - fellow schoolboy player at Sheffield Wednesday with Jamie Vardy). That said England would struggle without the players from that well-known county of Pacific Islandshire.

    No you don't, hence why we don't suck up to observers!

    I'm sure there's some profound, deep and meaningful statement in there somewhere.
    I was comparing you to James McCabe but I'm mistaken in my assessment. You're on a different level to him.

    James McCabe the famous watchmaker or were you venturing into dangerous political territory by mixing him up with James McClean?

    I was going from memory on the quote and the person is Joseph McCabe. I believe I was paraphrasing his self requested epitaph.
    I've no interest in a discussion on James McClean nor to get involved in a discussion on something I know very little about.

    So dodging the politics but venturing into religion. You like to live dangerously.

    Do you know a lot about James/Joseph McCabe?

    I attempted to read his book once! Didn't finish it or get very far into it. Realised it wasn't what i was looking for. It was his epitaph (He was a rebel to his last day) that caught my eye at the time.
    McCabe was supposed to be freethinker. IIRC he was a priest or studied to be but left and was effectively an atheist. Could that be viewed as venturing into religion? He was a great debater by all accounts and English with Irish descendants.
    Just some useless stuff I've remembered over the years.

    S
    Sounds so similar to myself it's scary - does altar boy count as training to be a priest? And when you say rebel it takes a whole new meaning on over here ;);)

    agus an beoir! :rolleyes:

    I followed the same path from altar boy to atheist!

    Venturing into politics, I see Martin has gone. Not exactly NI's Mandela but travelled a similar journey from "terrorist" to "statesman".

    Anyway back to confusing the locals...

    Most of them can barely speak English let alone Gaeilge....they probably wouldn't know the difference! :rolleyes:

    I am guessing a lot of people will be trying to figure out what is being posted so we better stick to their native tongue, otherwise we could end up with Welsh, Irish, Scottish and Yorkshire being spoken on here!

    What the hell have I walked in on?

    I didn't realise that Ireland had its own language? or is it the same as the welsh and just made up gibberish to sound good?
