Surely to god the second biggest city in the country will have some use for a 35k stadium. Madness that people are against this. Ulster finals, all ireland quarter finals, the neutral round of these all ireland group stage games if they last. With antrims population- Antrim home games if they ever got the finger out and got to the top level in hurling/football.

Quote from: tonto1888 on February 23, 2024, 01:11:45 PMThis is Armagh. We are capable of winning the next 4 games. Equally, we are capable of losing them

Depending on how Cork do, they might be quite motivated to win the last game.
Hopefully we can afford to not be too worried about it by then.

Quote from: jcpen on February 23, 2024, 03:48:14 PMIt's a weird one when the most expensive squad ever assembled in the history of the game has no strength in depth.
Look where the money went. 160 million on Maguire and Antony for starters.

Quote from: Cunny Funt on February 23, 2024, 03:17:27 PMMartinez out replaced by the clumsy and error prone Maguire. Shaw out and replaced by a 4th choice centre back lindelof. Hollund out and will likely be replaced by Rashford who won't put in the work rate of Hollund and Rashford moved from the wing could mean Anthony restored to the starting team.

The one thing the injuries highlights is how weak the squad is with zero strength in depth, Jim Radcliffe and Co need to focus improving the squad starting this summer before even thinking about some state of the art Old Trafford.
Yeah.

Onana (on form)
Dalot-Varane-Martinez-Shaw
Maino-Casemiro-Bruno
Garnacho-Hojlund-Rashford (on form)

Thats a fairly strong team that you'd expect to best most teams, but theres 0 behind that, 2 or 3 injuries and the team is woeful again and carrying a few duds.

Quote from: thewobbler on February 23, 2024, 10:31:09 AMIt would seems the list of Bob Dylan's favourite songwriters could extend from here to the moon.

If I was to ask 10 random Irish people if they've heard of Paul Brady, honestly I doubt he'd register with more than 5.

I like his music too. But for whatever reason, he seems to have no ability to transcend generations.

I respectfully think you're talking through your hoop! Anyone who can sell out Vicar street for almost a  month solid, and who has has his songs covered by the sort of names listed above, can't serioulsy be argued to be not well known. Especially in hs own country.

You could say the same of  the  pop stars of today.  I just  had  a look at the charts  .  This lot could have sold out vicar Street for  6 months , but I've never heard  of any of them. Have you?

Lu.Ci
Kygo
Billie Gillies
YG Marley
Muni Long
Cat Janice
Noah Kahan
Yung Filly
Given his songs never off the radio these days you mustnt listen to much lol

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on February 22, 2024, 05:13:25 PMAway to Galway this weekend but can't see a win, our record against Galway is terrible, even when they had a bad team.Derry focus on winning their last 2 home games. Dublin may be tough if they need the points.

I would be very surprised if Derry don't win comfortably on Sunday. Yes, they nearly always lose to Galway but Derry are flying with a full team out at the moment while Galway are pretty much down to an FBD league selection.
Yeah. Galway would give them their fill of it with a full deck it'd be hard to call, but given who they're missing you'd be shocked if Derry don't win well surely.

Quote from: illdecide on February 21, 2024, 08:12:49 PMBig week ahead to see where the teams are at, this is the weekend that defines who's challenging for promotion and who's gonna be in a dogfight to stay up...

Meath v Kildare - Home win for me based on previous displays, Kildare were horrible v Armagh and Meath had a good 2nd half v Louth

Louth v Cavan - Away win for me although Louth are not easy beaten at home, Louth's 2nd half display v Meath was v poor. Narrow away win.

Fermanagh v Cork - Fermanagh have been decent in the league so far, had a poor 2nd half v Donegal last week but up to that have been hard to beat. Cork you just don't know what you're gonna get but they really need to win...Draw for me.

Armagh v Donegal - How the hell can you call this one...My orange tinted glasses say narrow home win but really don't know. Whatever the result the winner is almost certain to get promoted.


Couldn't Armagh and DOnegal agree on a draw and then both of them would be almost certain to be promoted?

A draw a strong possibility even if they don't agree.
Both of them are going up. One may get 14 points. 10 will be probably be enough for the other
If Armagh get to 10,  that is likely losing to Donegal and then losing to cavan. If so, cavan have them on head-to-head. More likely they need to get to 12 to go up and will probably do so
I'd say we'll get a bigger test against Cavan than we did last year in the Ulster game. Having said that though Louth have every chance of beating Cavan at the weekend too.
I think so. We imploded in that game. I had confidence we'd turn up, but a few key guys injured, rotten day for it, and other things and we just didn't turn up. Was never as disheartened after a match as that. Losing I can take, not turning up and firing a single shot is worse. We are looking better this year though, so hopefully so

Aye it'll be tough there. Ardee is a club ground, so very tight and they go well there. Still think we'll come home with something though
Yeah yous must have hit 20 wides from long range potshots that day, remember Rian making a great diving save/block on our goalline when we were maybe 4 or 5 up.

Quote from: 5times5times on February 23, 2024, 09:43:59 AMThat's a fair strong bench Armagh have, one we havent seen in a while.
Mackin
McCambridge
ONeill x2
Duffy & Nugent
Jarly Og
Kelly
Yeah plus Conor O'Neill and Higgins on bench as well.

Still have Grimley, McPartlan, Rafferty, Morgan, McQuillan and Cumiskey not named on the panel who could all come in and get their place. Good competition for spots which is what we'll need if we're gonna do anything this year.

Would imagine the 3 O'Neills, Duffy, Morgan and Rafferty will start come championship if fit.

Quote from: johnnycool on February 22, 2024, 02:26:25 PMYet it's only coming to light that almost 400 killed that day were IDF personnel and who knows what other innocents were actually killed by the IDF that day.

If Hamas had killed on IDF personnel and demolished the fence, they would have attracted some measure of international support. Going into houses and killing families and going to a rock concert and rampaging about is not acceptable, even if some military targets were attacked. By the same token, it not acceptable for the Israelis to kill Gaza families even if some Hamas targets were attacked.

The lack of historical context in this post 🤢 Israeli landgrab and murder didn't begin on October 7 last year

Everyone knows that but it still doesn't excuse murder.
If you know it mention it... Netenyahu was itching to do this... is like carpet bombing West Belfast after the Birmingham bomb...

Yes it is, though more like the Kingsmills massacre. And who would defend that? Some on here by the looks of it.
Can't defend it, but like what Hamas have done, none of it happened out of the blue...
