Quote from: ClubScene13 on Today at 07:42:58 PMThere seems to be a disproportionate amount of Armagh people that have no club connection. Is this from the strangle hold that Crossmaglen have had at club level or why is this? Not a dig either, I can see how that level of dominance would leave people asking why bother.

That dominance is more in the normal range now, like Kerry in the All Ireland.
And senior dominance should not affect Intermediate and Junior clubs.
But many posters on GAABoard do not live in Armagh, which reduces any connection with a club there.

Quote from: general_lee on Today at 09:08:46 AMThe scramble is well and truly on.
The Lurgan clubs all seem to be have been given half their allocation for the Hill, is this true of all the Armagh clubs? I see the grumblings have started on Facebook already about not getting tickets, mostly from people who apparently go to all the matches but didn't bother with a season ticket...
my club received a 50/50 split between hills and seats
so seems to be the norm
Think thats across the board. Be great to be from a club with more tickets than members..
Mr Maguire got a fabulous welcome last (and first) time. This could happen again if the luck is with the Orange men.

BTW what clubs do the various players represent ?

Hopefully Sam is getting the same welcome this time next week.

Which players? Clann Eireann have 3 starters (Turbo, TK and Barry McCambridge. Maghery have 2 in Crealey and Forker plus Higgins on the panel who actually started against Galway the last time. Cullyhanna have 3 lads on the panel who'll all likely see game time, Shanes have 3 on the panel as well but Ciaran Mackin is out with the cruciate. Fair spread across all the panel.

Notably, Cross have less involvement with this AI final than any previous one Armagh played in.

Quote from: toby47 on Today at 02:23:58 PMAlthough it's early in the week, I can't remember so little tickets floating about.

There used to be at least 3 weeks before finals, more time for tickets to move about.

Quote from: JoG2 on July 21, 2024, 08:44:59 PMArmagh are probably at their limit give or take, won a semi they could have lost by 9/10 points. Galway win a match at about 80% with plenty of room for improvement.

Galway by 6 / 7



Galway's qualities are evident. However, it isn't really the case that Armagh played flat out the last days, a number of their players were quiet enough and are capable of better, their shooting was quite a bit better in the Ulster final, despite a tight defence. It is not the case that Armagh were flat out and can never reach that pace again, this time other players may shine while some do not thrive, and likewise with Galway. There was little in recent games with Galway and the same seems likely again.

+1 on that.

Quote from: SouthDublinBro on July 20, 2024, 12:17:57 PMThe Armagh folk pointing at Galway's poor performance vs Sligo have short memories. They were nearly turned over by Down themselves.

I dpn't think either of these are that important, except to discussion threads. These teams have paced themselves to be effective at the the business end of the season, and stumbles along the way are not the point. In 2002, Armagh hardly managed to beat Sligo in a replay, but they picked up pace for Dublin and Kerry. Then, and now, Armagh were not great when they were expected to win.
However, if the Sligo game showed any limitations of Galway then I hope their manager shares this information with Armagh.

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on July 20, 2024, 11:41:33 AMBoth teams won't fear each other which will make it pretty even on the day.

Who gets the tactical side of things right will gain the victory

Is McG a better manager than PJ?

Which team is fitter

Who has the better bench

Both are hungry

Who's more disciplined

Hard final to call


I don't think Armagh will be found wanting in the fitness, strength of the bench or hunger departments anyway.

no Connacht team has beaten an Ulster team in the final since 1943 and that wasn't Mayo or Galway.
Was anyone at it?

There are so many people in the software business at management and cxo levels dictating what is going on without having the first clue about software of any description. The most important stuff falls by the wayside.

Share price was down to 291 earlier so they have done alright considering.

There was a big Reddit post from yesterday about how shit crowdstrike are... Just one post but still funny timing.

There is so many people working in technical roles that are incompetent full stop.

It's easy to blame managers and c suite but I'd say 50% (conservative estimate) of the tech resources I've come across on large scale programmes just are no where near good enough.

It is hard to get people. But surely Windows is partly to blame here, you can update a driver and so prevent the machine booting. A more robust system would sandbox the new driver in some way until it could be validated and only then add it to the system. I suppose Cloudstrike could have designed their updates along those lines, but the OS does not enforce it.

Complaceny combined with cost cutting dressed up us a productivity/efficiency/lean programme will be in there somewhere.

Well, value your f**king shares today lads.

Quote from: armaghniac on July 19, 2024, 11:02:43 AMHow the premium seats work for concerts?
I bought a ticket for Springsteen for about half price the day before, but all the seats around me in the Canal end were not full.

You get the option of buying your two normal seats for each, usually about 50% more than regular concert prices. Handy for the shortish bar queues and toilets but for a concert you're looking for atmosphere and its slightly more dead in premium, as well as being more expensive. I wouldn't count them as a huge perk in ownership

It certainly lacked atmosphere, many of those around were using it as pub with background music.

Quote from: thewobbler on July 19, 2024, 04:41:55 PMI've said it for years and will say it forever... one team should be in all white and one team should not be allowed white. The Yanks have got this one right.

My 47 year old eyes find these colours trying, among many other examples.

Mayo v Galway a struggle.
Galway v Cork a struggle.
Armagh v Down a struggle.

There are other ways, for instance teams should not both wear white shorts. In Armagh v Down the shorts are a help at least. Or teams could have a version of their jersey with a hoop etc.
But they should try.
