    Just for the sake of accuracy like.

    But what has that got to do with my post, which, in case you missed it, was about Leinter?

    Ah but the years in the interim were glorious. GLORIOUS.

    Let me out of your misery - you're not. I saw Munster achieving very little benefit form that win yesterday however you'd have to be blind not to believe that Munster's young players won't have learned a lot of tough lessons about themselves from these 6 games - how Murray has learned a very hard lesson from his disastrous decision in Paris and has clearly improved as a result, or how David Kilcoyne has learned how to scrummage, lift and charge with the ball with purpose and amazing confidence like we have NEVER seen before, or Sherry's huge improvement in LO throwing, or how we as supporters now go into matches with far more confidence that our scrum has become a far stronger and dependable platform (compare that to 2yrs ago when our scrum was a shocker!).

    "We played worse this season than we did 2 seasons ago" - SO .... F***IN .... WHAT? A Different coach, a different game-style, a very different squad of players and relative experience to today - I have given you what I believe to be solid evidence of progression in those 6 games which is worth celebrating and looking forward with. Will you please at least acknowledge that?

    Well said

    As far as I'm concerned we've had 6 games so far this season against serious opposition (Ulster, Leinster and Ospreys early in the rabo, Saracens home and away and Racing away) of which we've only won one of them. There's no reason to celebrate our season so far, I'm quite disappointed by it in fact. There is reason to celebrate that we're still in the heineken and still have an opportunity to show we're a capable.
    We've played worse this season than we did 2 seasons ago under McGahan and the place was erupting around then. Why be furious then and joyous now when the only real difference this time was having the fortune of a soft group, red cards etc.

    It was a cheap shot. Didn't do much damage but intent was the crime. Leave that stuff out.
    Credit to Barnes for reading what he was up to and showing him the door immediately.

    This 'knocking out' stuff allows the red brigade the illusion of a rugby triumph over Leinster which would have been unlikely to materialise had they directly met at any stage of the Heineken Cup.
    How many of you seriously believe that Munster would have qualified from Leinster's pool? Be honest.

    And leargas the supposed dark days of 2006 were experienced by no more then 5000 of you.

    Get ready for your cycle back to obscurity........

    Progress Dowlinz, thats all most of us wanted in the first season. A five try victory without some of our biggest names surely represents that at least, we could all work hard to be miserable but even if we tried I doubt we'd match you at that game

    Wouldn't like to be with you at a winning HEC final. You'd probably be telling us to hold our horses, we hadn't won two in a row, or someone knocked on or next year will be awful, etc., etc. Seems that way to me anyway. Live in the moment!! This one's a good 'un and we haven't had one of them for a while :D
    I'll eagerly await your acknowledgment of no "the sky is falling" reactions from my quarter when the next mfans certified "catastrophe" occurs.

    I presume you didn't manage to get there. If you did, you must have been the only sad person there; everyone I met was happy. Don't know Jack from Adam, but I could post the same as his first para about the E. terrace.
