Re: ARTICLE: Clarets land 16-year old defender from Northern Ireland

Speaking of former defenders we signed from NI, I keep seeing Curtis Woods up at the Mary Peters Track. He was a top quality 400m runner in his day and can still shift. Much better runner than he was footballer, arguably. Playing for Ballyclare Comrades (what a name), I think.

I don't recall that,but i'm pretty certain he had a goal disallowed against Arsenal for a debatable offside,which would probably have been the winner,around December time i think when we were still going well at home.

It still gives us a bit of power though. We can tell Bristol if we don't get Brownhill then we'll sell Wells to someone else.
Not as simple as that, if the player has any say, of course. A club cannot force their player to join Club A, if the player prefers Club B for example?

One of Georgia, Belarus, Kosovo and Macedonia will be at the finals - based on them thrashing a load of minnows in the Nations League.

NI lost all 4 Nations League games, while Ireland drew 2 and lost 2 - and yet here they both are, still with a chance to make the finals.

I want no part of that. Not played in Belfast since 94, which was OK. 93 was toxic.

Winner - be it Ireland, NI, Bosnia or Slovakia - gets two group games in Dublin, which is where England play in the 2nd round if they win their group. That'll be fun too.
