    I can't say I know an awful lot about the Irish league but I have seen and heard a fair bit of David Jeffery and have to be honest but I liked what I'd heard.
    Here they come! It’s the charge of the “Thanks” Brigade!

    To my mind, this just proves that the GAA are the biggest bigots in sport on this island.

    Linfield Gentlemen

    Not even slightly surprised. monaghan have played a number of pre season matches at Windsor and it is probably the nicest group of people i have met in football. The hospitality tthat they extended to us as a team and group of fans would put most el clubs including our own to shame.

    As for the GAA bigots remark it may be hard to swallow for some, but we are all judged by our actions.

    ah yeah sure the linfield 'bigots' thing is just a misnomer - theyre really lovely people arent they ....

    im happy with this move, i think it should be the norm, but i dont like massive brushes tarring the best association this country has ever had...

    people really need to look at how they use word IMO... telling GUFC to f off is bigoted???? idiot.

    Although Linfield deserve credit for this it is hardly a surprise - any football club would help out another sports organisation with access to facilities provided it didn't impinge on their own games. Not that rugby etc are any different.

    In fact I can only think of one "sports" organisation that wouldn't.

    now Linfield should request use of Casement Park for their Setanta Cup games....

    That's a sweeping generalisation to say the least.

    The vast majority of GAA supporters and members aren't bigoted at all. Some of the offeeshals do seem to think that being involved with the GAA means that you are "more Irish" than someone involved with say soccer or rugby but this is only a small minority.

    I didnt say **** off to anyone. Id didnt associate myself with that remark. if you ask me most of the people in this country are bigots and racists and have consistently prooved themselves to be so. ANd yes i would include myself in that statement. Are the GAA bigoted, well you can argue that if you want. However if you dont like that word we could use sectarian.

    met David Jeffrey last year in Windsor to do an interview for a college project. i was hugely impressed. a real forward-thinking guy, on all fronts ... not personally familiar with any of the other windsor park crowd but Jeffrey is a gent

    I think he's talking about the time that Galway had to f*ck off out to Connemara to play Groningen in the eighties. Could be wrong but it's not the sort of thing discussed at Park-heeeeed, or in the SPL, so you're forgiven for your ignorance.
    This is the cooooooooooooolest footy forum I've ever seen!

    fcuk Groningen!!!

    There's only one Cambuur Leeuwarden!!!
    Cmon the mighty Cambuur!!!

    Though in truth -most frieslanders -Leeuwarders or Groningers consider Herenveen to be their "national" team.

    Actually for a change this season the Dutch championship might be won by a Non big three team. AZ '67 have been up there all season. It certainly looks like they will get a champions league place.


    PS - Can anyone name the LOI player who played (and successful) for Groningen quite recently (well in the last 15 years or so)?
