Can’t understand the narrative that Iceland deserved a point. They just packed the defence and hacked it out all second half. At least Argentina tried to play the right way, passed it around and created what few chances there were.
I hope Iceland get smashed in their remaining two games.

They've had their 15 minutes, it's now time for them to fook off and take their hoofball with them.

Norway were great craic when they were beating England back in 1993 but they soon became an absolute blight on international football.

Iceland are no different in that regard.
Not often I agree with you, but you're on the mark with this one
The 3 stoogies! The penny has dropped that Argentina, world cup finalist last time,  have  infinitly better players than Iceland? you guys deserve a certificate of punditry ::)  Fortunately the Iceland coach was of the same opinion

 Now football should only be played a certain way for the entertainment values of the 3 sofa stoogies who it appears know fck all about intl football, fck all about tactics and the value of the unbreakable united team ethic.
Iceland topped  their WC qual group by playing better football than and at the same time beating Croatia, Ukriane and Turkey. According to you morons they should now just fook off then?  ;D
 Too many times Iceland tried to play the ball out of defence on the ground in the 2nd half, stringing 5 or 6 passes before being dissposed by the likes of Messi et al, class players who have totally dominated much better players/teams than Iceland. The siege in the 2nd half  at times was not much different than Barca making Man u look like a pub team at the Wembley CL final or making Arsenal look bedraggled  everytime they met, or Barca trying to break though a Chelsea parked bus.  I suppose by the stoogie criteria of the beautiful game, all those teams should have fooked off the stage?
You've completely missed the point, haven't you?

I don't expect Iceland to play any other way than the way they do. That's the only way for them to get results.

The point is, it's utterly septic to watch, just as Norway were in the 1990s, and it would be a disaster for the tournament were they to go through ahead of Argentina.

Something similar goes for the Swiss, who are consistently the most boring team to watch at major finals. Hopefully Brazil destroy them.
Sid, I have got the point spot on. You're a phony when it comes to football analysis and knowledge. Brazil didn't destroy Switzerland and haven't that football quality to do so. What you hope might happen in order to satisfy some couch potato fantasy perception of a make believe world of the beautiful football game is beyond even the management of the creator of the universe. Would you be the type of guy who noticed Iceland players swarming around Messi when he had the ball, but didn't notice when Argentina did the exact same to Gisli Sig whenever he had the ball at his feet?

I fancy Carlow for this one, though that could be the weed talking.

It's an iPhone 6 and I meant the data as in 4g,was badly worded on my part.so I turn on my wifi hotspot on phone and it shows up as a wireless connection on my laptop as 'iphone' but I can't connect to it.
What Operating System are you running on your laptop?

Fair play to McShane coming over to say we 100% should have been given a free at the end.
I was hoping on his way to confront the ref that he'd manage to get in a sly foottap on Horses's goolies.

There were echoes of the old Meath there yesterday as they rose from exhaustion and certain defeat to claw back a deficit, point by point.

I though the ref was poor all game, poor decisions, interfering with a persistence, unnecessarily taking momentum out of a game which was being played in good spirit.
That was a definite foul at the end, but I have to say it was an artful foul.

Would a gaelic footballer be recognised in a protestant town ?

Stupid remark, seriously :(
Seafold stalking again!  I suppose it does easily beat the tedium of what passes for life in Strabane, but hey, has self respect dropped to such low levels to be almost absent??

I seem to remember some Monaghan supporters trying to convince themselves that they were a top 3 team after the Tyrone game I wonder where the thinking is now......if you set up to play with a blanket against a team you should be beating out the gate then you deserve to be beaten...Negative football brings the quality of football down and you get div 3 teams beating div 1.
Name one.

Turgid game, Monaghan didn't do enough to deserve any better outcome.

You'll never walk alone, until you make a bad mistake and then you'll be left to walk alone to face the fans, shame on Klopp for not standing with the goalie, never mind Karius's teammates who all treated him as if he was a leper.

Watched it full and uninteruped last night, apart from those 6/7 lost minutes at the start of the 2nd half

Really impressed with Monaghan for me what won it for them was three key things

Rory Beggan's frees. Long range sniper outstanding kicking and kept Monaghan ticking over to thwart any momentum Tyrone were building. Within 50metres you cant foul Monaghan or you'll be punished that's some asset.
McManus star quality: Quiet for most of the game but just as it looking Tyrone had reeled the game in McManus came to the fore and blew the game out of the water
McCarron McAnespie: Both quality footballers and a threat any time they got it. Not sure why the former was subbed

There is a certain confidence in this side that I haven't seen from Monaghan sides in the past. They will have to be consistent

Tyrone should reach the super8s and it wont do any harm to have a run in the qualifiers. Tho it may attribute to fatigue in the super 8s. Colm C and McCann probably should not have started as they were fairly anonymous the back door will give them time to get back to pace. Peter Harte was anonymous too. sending of was very unlike him, probably frustrated. The starting FF line was reasonably impressive especially McAliskey of course. We'll see how  it goes but, we need leaders in the absence of Colm.
and I'd say Monaghan were a lot cuter in possession than in previous championship games,  where once inside the Tyrone half the venture would invariably end up getting ambushed and dispossessed. I checked with BBC NI player and I only see the Fermanagh Armagh game there, did you record the game?

They still did that tho a fair few times but there's no doubt they were a lot more patient, very comfortable on the ball.
Not as much of the bravado nonsense they be usually at, (a Banty hangover I reckon) but there is marked increase in the general quality of the player so when you have the ability, you have more confidence in your ability and don't feel the need for bravado.
Dare I say it... but if Monaghan can be consistent and the squad proves to be resilient enough thru the super 8s there is every chance you could reach the promised land.... an AI semi final ;)

I saw it on GAAGO.

Whats goin on with your sensible post? account hack?
You mean when I predicted an easy Monaghan win? and post match that I wouldn't be getting too excited by this win because that was a dysfunctional rudderless Tyrone team.  Happy enough, but not counting last 8 chickens yet.

Wd40 any good for degreasing a bike chain. Any other tips
WD40 bike  degreaser in spray can is a very good product. It cleans and lubricates. The WD40 heavy duty degreaser is thicker so you just drip it on to the chain, when the occasions calls and work it in. 
At present I'm using a Kroon oil product called Biosol, I buy it in a litre bottle and put in a spray bottle or use a brush. It's biodegradable and mixes well with water.
It. can be blended with water for lighter cleaning 1/5 - 1/10 and  1/1 for the heaviest degreasing tasks.

Darragh O'Se doesn't think the Monaghan panel is strong enough to come through the super 8's in his article today.
Darragh does not realise that we have not won the ulster title yet, he's thinking like a Kerryman, - once you have beaten Cork the provincial title follows.

The tyronist intifada has been issued against big Sean, who stands accused by Jordan of team Tyrone bashing in order to further the sales of a book, his pundit career and of  being inspired  by  the lowest pundit scúm on the planet,  Joe Brolly :) That's the way to respond to criticism in Tyrone.
Jordan puts Monaghan's victory entirely down to the contribution of Beggan and McManus over and above their Tyrone counterparts, not anything to do with Tyrone management/coaching/system of play.
