We're not here to take part we're here to takeover.

Heard a "fan" spouting that on the news one night, the first part proven to be factually correct I suppose.

It didn't go unnoticed at the time, VP should've told the media where to go when the "sing-song" stuff blew up. Like most foreign managers she's more interested in her own future than Ireland.
Seemed bizarre that Kerry didn't press Dublins kick outs more, I'll have to watch the match again but I felt all through the game that Kerry weren't brave / risky enough, e.g., O'Brien on a good few occasions was free and either Moynihan or P Clifford didn't make the pass. Have to feel for Gavin White as well, a clean sheet may have been enough for Kerry to win, fine margins again .

QuoteThere was stuff trending on social media on Friday and Saturday about an interview he did previously where after a bad day he said we went and shot a pig and a turkey, and how said he's 'a hunter by nature'.
Apparently there's pics he has put up on the internet of him standing over his kills.

Is shooting pigs and turkeys "hunting"?

Question for the many rednecks and backwoodsmen on here, though the golf thread may not be their place.
QuoteI walk home that way a lot and the lads out of their head are tragic cases. But they rarely cause aggro.
As is the case in the tourist it's usually young lads who are the danger.

Ya, the yellowheads are so fucked up they are harmless. The guards have got complacent and aren't policing the young lads. Back before video phones they'd have gotten timber from the guards and that might have reformed them, can't use timber anymore though.
Quotelooks like another assault in galway yesterday

the countrys a joke

I hung around Galway after the salthill match earlier in the summer. It too is heading downhill. A lot of "new Irish" gangs hanging around eyre square looking for trouble.

Quote2 incredible iron shots on the last 2 holes

What a 2 iron on the last into that Gale. The wind knocked nearly 100 yards off his drive so the difficulty of that last hole made the win something special. He hits his 2 iron better than his wedges.

He should do a tiger on it next week and use his 2 iron off the tee all weekend.
QuoteForgot who it was but young sub caught a pass from thr keeper more or less in front of goal.  Should have taken the mark but didn't

Aye, thought that myself but was the pass inside the 45? I think it would've put Derry 3 up.
You could say the Clifford shoulder which was a turnover ball for Kerry but was a mistaken free for Derry was a momentum changer in the first half. Derry should've taken that goal chance, instead of soccer shit he should've picked her up and buried it.

Quoteyour punishment

My point exactly, it's punishment on amateur players. I know the god dam rule and knew it weeks ago and most folk here predicted the outcomes of the QFs for that reason. Doesn't mean it's right though.

QuoteDid the Mayo players stay in Dublin the (Saturday) night before

Don't know. All the players (from all the counties still in the competition) the last few weeks must've got time off from their employers? Does it work that way ?

QuoteIt's nonsense (and sour grapes) to say it's unfair on Mayo they had to play 3 games in 3 weeks.

QuoteEveryone knew from the start of the championship it was important to win the group to get the advantage of the week's rest. Everyone had equal opportunity of winning their group.

Hound read it as you wish. A Monaghan lad on here went daft with me on another Fact I stated as well. You will see in the build up to this match on here that I didn't hold up much hope as I sensed the back to back to back to back games would get us. Larryin89 also stated the same. I still think it's unfair on amateurs who put in a massive dedication to our sports to have a pile up of games when there is no real need.

If Galway were on the field yesterday in place of us it'd have been a demolition job as well.

Anyhow, best of luck to Dublin and I hope it's either yourselves or Monaghan that do it this year.

Three away games on the trot in treee weeks , no team could survive that

Correct, even Monaghan only managed a draw, so no team won.

p.s., well done to Dublin great to see yer die hards back today blasting out Molly Malone and donning the "city that fought an empire" jerseys, the jacks are back.

As predicted, too many games in a short space of time caught up with us.

This will sound like sour grapes but to expect this amount of games from amateur players is too much.

Could we not have an extra week so the QF matches would be a more level playing field. The team that goes straight through gets 3 weeks and the others 2 weeks. It'd just mean pushing the final out by a week.

Mayo have gone backwards anyone who says differently isn't watching our match's in full. We have forwards that don't show for the ball that are no use one on one. Nearly all our scores come from runners or overlaps. We are lacking a ball winning inside forward akin to Andy Moran.

Our midfield is non existent and what's worse when the chips are down they go into hiding. I'd have Hession in midfield, we need to find another.

Our defence is getting or will get a slating but when your overran at midfield it's good night Irene.
