Tyrone edging in front now, should hold on once they get 3 or 4 clear.

Not that it is believable that you have 5k on a GAA accumulator but I feel very sorry for you if you put Kildare in it.

Not really a surprise if all the pundits are predicting a Longford win.

Haven't seen too much of Tipp but would it be a possibility of them throwing Jack Kennedy into the FF line alongside Quinlivan to cause Mayo some headaches back there? It could result in Aidan O'Shea and Keegan being deployed together in the full back line.

From following the updates it seems that Monaghan got a run on them early and when that happens it can get messy. It can be a tough place to go if they keep in touch.

Leinster Football final attendances 1980 to 1990 inclusive

1980    50,276
1981    28,398
1982    32,504
1983    36,921
1984    56,051
1985    33,423
1986    43,765
1987    48,122
1988    42,302
1989    56,839
1990    53,847

What was Meath and Laois in 1991? I suspect that might be the one of the few occasions it has fallen below 40000 in the last 30 years. Westmeath and Laois in 04 and Dublin Westmeath in 2016 being the other. 2017 was an aberration that won't occur again.

28,157

Thanks, I didn't think it would be that low. Of course the 230,000+ who turned up the Meath and Dublin matches would have more than made up for it.

The Russian team have collectively run further in their 2 matches than any other team in the competition has done in any other game. . .

The running distances are nothing extraordinary as modern football goes. Liverpool and Man City would regluarly cover greater distances and their average over the course of a premier league season would be on par with what Russia have done so far in the world cup. It must be noted that I believe that football is rife with doping.

Do people really deep down honestly believe that  this  Dublin  team would have lost any of their matches pre semi final in the last few years outside of Croker

Straw clutching I feel by those dreaming of Dublin losing matches.....
It's not the point
The last time they were in Longford they barely got out

That was an era of a competitive Leinster championship, them days are never returning.

They don't fecking Care! Why should they? Would you care if you were winning Championship after Championship on you own home turf? It costs the fans little or nothing in terms of time and money to go to these games. Why would they give this up? Why would the team turn their back on such an advantage as home games? Only a fool would give up all the financial benefits they inherit!

Because their good enough to do it without these benefits.I think a lot of dubs want this team to go on to be seen as the best ever.This simply wont happen if their winning a farce of a championship that blatantly favours 1 team over everyone else

They will go down as the greatest of all time and probably are there now, however there will always be an asterisk after their achievements due to the financial doping and favourable treatment they have received from the GAA. Dublin fans know this and hate it.

The best forwards in Connacht (from Roscommon) kicked some wides today

The Best forward in the country from Galway went missing until the game was won today!

Ah come on now. He was quiet most of the game (thought the Ros man marker, McInerney I believe, played very well, for all that Comer shouldve had a penalty), but the time he did hit his purple patch was right at the crunch stage of the game

2 points from a hype player.... dhoukd have had a free not a penalty, was fouled outside , Mcinerney got the better of  the bsttle..... comer lucky not to be booked for hit on Lavin.....

It should have been a sending off. Two strange teams, Galway could have destroyed Roscommon today if they were not so pathetic in the 1st half while if Roscommon were not so wasteful all game then they should have won. Roscommon have the ability to cause upsets but if they make the last 8 they will likely suffer a bad hammering or 2 again. Galway definitely have the ability of a top 4 team but the way they set up in the 1st half today was insane.

Croatia are playing Nigeria in Kaliningrad. Until 1945 it was a German city, in Prussia, called Königsberg. Nobody talks about Prussia any more.

And nobody talks about Bulgaria on the news anymore.
Any time the Wombles come up they do
Nicely done

Sindo ad on the radio claiming another "historic" win for Ireland. When historians are looking back on this period of Irish history they are going to be very busy on the subject of rugby.
