With the news that Captain Stroke has decided to continue on as Cork sectrary despite every rumour saying he was shuffling off, I think it’s time he had his own thread.

He deserves a book or two to be written about him.

GAA Discussion / Croke Park - Bags and Shít
« on: June 20, 2017, 03:23:04 PM »
Ban on bags in Croke Park just announced. Obvious reaction to events in England and elsewhere, but is it too much?

A4-sized bags or smaller only or the high vis (wo)men come out in force..

Contrary to popular belief, the Connacht final hasn't been played yet..

It gets a bad rap.

What sort of jackass goes out into the countryside to set fire to it?

What the key to a top notch Paddy's?

Start on the drink before or after the parade? Find a good spot for the club finals? And when do you have the tactical meal to keep the train rolling?

GAA Discussion / Roscommon v Clare - AIQ R4A [23/07/16]

Two teams who beat Sligo well in their last wins but Clare coming in with the momentum and the form. Will take something to lift the lads' heads after yesterday.

A team without a defense against a team without a heart. Intriguing.

Surely worth its own thread. The father always spoke about him as one of the all-time greats. What he did in bringing the Ajax academy system to Barcalona changed football off the field too.

Note the change in time from the original schedule.

Hard not to look forward to this one. Should be a bumper crowd from both counties. Mayo needing the win to stay in the race for survival, Roscommon with a chance to put the knife into the neighbours' long run in D1.

We were in a similar situation last year at home against Galway and fell very flat. I'd hope regardless of result the performance is a step above that one.

GAA Discussion / Roscommon v Down - Dr. Hyde Park [06/03/16]

Critical game for both sides. Our best chance to ensure survival of our four remaining games and one honestly we would have down as our best chance of two points heading into the league. Down will need to win here to have even a faint hope of survival themselves.

I'd expect them to fire everything they have at us, especially after last year. For us we just have to look at games like Laois, Galway, Sligo and Fermanagh to see situations where we followed up champagne stuff with flat Cidona. We made a step in the right direction backing up the Kerry result but it will mean feck all if we don't win start winning the ones we're supposed to be winning as well.

GAA Discussion / Kerry v Roscommon NFL D1 - 7/2/16 [Live 2pm TG4]

Time for the next one. As McStay said, a nice handy one.. ;D

Looking forward to this one. Aiming to be as competitive as yesterday and we can take whatever comes from there. Question marks over Shine, Conor Daly and Diarmuid Murtagh. If all three were fit it would change the makeup of our team in some key ways, not least of which allowing Enda to move to his best position on the wing rather than filling in at midfield.

GAA Discussion / Roscommon v Monaghan - NFL D1 (31/01/16)

Time to start thinking about the start of the real stuff. Monaghan winless in the McKenna but resting most of their key players. Don't think pre-season form will have much bearing on this game. For us this may be a must win game if we want to have a chance at staying up.
