    Foot.ie! Tale Of Two Keepers

    Alan Blayney & Roy Carroll

    What a different story for two of Northern Ireland's young goalkeepers.
    Firstly young Alan Blayney celebrated a sensational Premiership debut for Southampton against Newcastle United in a 3-3 end-to-end thriller.
    The result denied Newcastle a chance to play in the European Champions' League next season.

    On the other hand, spare a thought for his Manchester United's counterpart, Roy Carroll.
    The County Fermanagh lad looks set to be omitted from United's FA Cup final starting line-up.
    Carroll's impressive form, especially in the semi-final win over Arsenal, may not have been enough and it looks like Tim Howard will wear the coveted number one jersey against Millwall.

    I think you're both barking up the wrong tree, lads. The NI-qualified goalie on Celtic's books is 19 year-old Michael McGovern from Enniskillen and not David Marshall, the bhoy who played the blinder in Barcelona...

    Thumbs down

    I am in no way condoning violence/threats/abusive behaviour, politically-motivated or otherwise and I believed when I subscribed to this forum that it was purely football-based.

    We all have our own political opinions but, please guys, do we have to air them here?

    C'mon friends, stick to the foot.ie

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but UEFA or FIFA also saw fit to "comment" on the Republic fans welcome afforded to these players, eh ?

    London postcodes don't interest me.

    "SOME osc fans giving death threats" .... yeah, one nutter with 20p and a nearby phonebox .... but, hey, I guess that doesn't sit well with your jaundiced view of our support.

    The "issue" has been done to death elsewhere, Dev. The net result being that our support was pilliored and we lost one very average player. The amount of support Lennon actually received from all quarters was less well documented.

    You won't have read that in the 'Irish News'

    As for your last comment, I'll treat that with the contempt it deserves.

    So it was "unionist symapthisers" (grrrrreat euphemism) and not "osc fans" this time? I'll take that as, erm, some back-handed compliment.

    And, yeah, like death threats are just "symptomatic of the planter constituency". Begorrah, you'll be telling me next that Cheeky Charlie was 'finking of da vermin' when he smuggled all those guns in years ago.

    Just another ill-bespoken generalisation from your predjudiced soul.

    I mean, seriously, do you ever re-read what you type before you press 'submit'?

    Oh, so now the 'threat' was from our 'pals' in Glasgow ....just how many more tenuous links do you want to post?

    "Fascist", "anti-nationalist" .... get it off your chest, Dev. I mean, does the sight of all those 'six-counties' flags flying at Lansdowne for Ulster's 1999 Heineken win still rankle with ya?

    [Lux suspects, the inherent Oirish paranoia will conclude that it was da britz afterall]

    Have a problem with the bast*rdised red hand,wherever it is flown.....unless in a museum where it belongs!
    The "loyalists" - would you be referring to the labelled group of people who polled around 2% in last November's elections or the wider 'Unionist' fraternity who - like myself - have no interest in the West of Scotland, except it's harbours?

    No denying historical links in the West of Scotland - why would I -, just curious as to why this alleged death threat has anything to do with me, or "45%" of the community. I'll say it again ..... T-E-N-U-O-U-S .... and even then, with the aforementioned 2%

    What are these "well-known fascist links", or are you getting confused with Dev's tacit support for Herr Fuhrer (Sean Russell, anyone)?

    You are this year's grade A student and finest purveyor of Muppetry.

    Not really, in fact you're about the only poster on here that manages to work his/her own prejudices into every post.

    Yep, "sad and pathetic".

    Now, back to the title of the thread ..... Michael Ingham is now in the NI squad for the upcoming Carribean tour - a great fillip for the lad who's been on loan (from Sunderland) to Wrexham this season, after 6 years on the fringes of the Sunderland first team.

    Ingham, Blayney, Taylor, Carroll .... relatively strong for keepers ... and there's a young lad at Celtic too who could be vying for the jersey.

    Not forgetting our own Elliott Morris
