Big game on Thursday. Hoping Ozil and Wilshere are added to the squad ok. In recent years Arsenal have flopped when the presure is really on in Europe, often over by half time - hopefully the back 4 or 5 or 3 play beyond their norm for Arsene's last home game in Europe at this club.

He's basically a wing-back.
Most of the Irish lads seem to end up in that position (they call it a half-back flanker), as it suits their existing skill set and athletic ability.
Might kick the odd goal, but the pitch is a mile long so his role would primarily be to transition at speed out of defence and drive it long into the forwards.

A mile?

Was talking to a boy who said 10% of the stuff in our recycling bin is actually recycled.

I don't care. Just something different. A relegation battle would be exciting. 22 years is too long.  Give someone else a go.

The historic old town of Moygashel is absolutely gorgeous and has been the centre of cultural life in Tyrone since the 1800s . Just put on your walking shoes (it's mainly cobbled streets) and go exploring. The town was untouched by the Troubles, a beacon of neutrality, and is now on the UNESCO Heritage list. If you enter from the south you'll see Linen Green, one of the world's leading designer shopping villages. Stroll through the old town and you'll find lots of interesting murals, the Independent Methodist Church, and in the centre of the square you'll find the Cloth Hall monument, commemorating the town's rich linen history. The centre is surrounded by rows of terrorist houses with lots of fields and hedges. Linen Green sells everything from food to souvenirs and local crafts.

Moygashel is clean, has a peaceful atmosphere, and appeared very safe for walking around. No cars are allowed in the centre though there are taxis within a few miles.

I thought I would be happy but it makes me sad. Wenger will always remain one of my favourite men on the planet.

That's it. Like an oul dog put out of its misery, you still miss it knocking about.

Anyone give me a bit of advice. Have the car about a month (it isnt new). All has seemed grand but have noticed intermittently that when i stop the car and turn it off there is like a fan noise that comes from engine as if it is cooling down or something. Its quite loud even though car is completely off. Timed it the last few times and it goes on for about 3 minutes. It isnt every time i turn it off but starting to happen a bit more often over these last 2 days.
Anyone any ideas? Im panicking that its something major

Have you definitely turned the car off?

Nutts Corner market on a Sunday up near the airport is ideal for stuff for the house. You'll come away with all manner of things from 300 toilet rolls to Dunky Donuts to a DVD of the Top 10 12th July marches in Ahoghill.

Strabane is a beautiful town in the sunshine. For the first-time visitor, I recommend that your first stop to be to the Visitors Centre. There are so many things to do in this small town you really need a plan to get you started. The Visitors Centre offers several brochures and maps of local attractions and festivals in the area. For a quid you can also purchase a map that gives a brief description of each of the shops and cafes. The map also gives the location and description of the delightful pubs and bed and breakfasts in the area. The Visitors Centre also offers several gift items and souvenirs, such as postcards and books written about the town’s rich history. Several different types of tours of the town are offered, including a horse drawn carriage ride throughout the town. Individual or group tours are also available at varying rates. An individual tour can cost between ten to twelve pounds per person and a large group tour cost as high as three hundred pounds per person.

Coalisland. As you approach the town from the Dungannon side you immediately get the impression you are hurtling towards an experience you'll never forget. The warmth of the once-bustling mining village hits you before you even set eyes on the burning Datsun Sunny estate on the Lineside.

Car parking is never a problem. You just park your car. Landi's do a great deal on cowboy suppers every day of the week and Springisland on takeaway Sunday dinners on a Friday.

The people are almost overly friendly and will want to know why you are there and when you'll be leaving. 

Although the barracks have long gone, you can still smell the mortar and reminisce.
