Quote from: seafoid on November 30, 2023, 08:32:45 AMThe Euros are a bit of a distraction to cover up the delays I think. Ireland is strange in that the 3 main sports all have to build their own infrastructure.  One reason is because all the power is centralised. There is also the history of non cooperation between sports and the ban.  In other countries like France the city builds the infrastructure and different teams use it . If this was in Cork or Belfast  for example there would be one 50,000 stadium built by the city and used by hurling, football, rugby and soccer. This model is much better. It would work very well in Belfast. The city would get concert profits to support other projects. In Ireland the GAA builds its own stadia. Páirc Uí Chaoimh does not get enough matches... It is the problem child of Irish stadia .

It happens in Uk, it happens in Italy, It happens in USA. It happens in loads of countries the world over. The idea that it's an Irish problem is nonsense.

Are those Italian stadiums not owned by the city councils? hence the ground sharing - albeit AC Milan looking to move from San Siro. Pretty sure Stade de France is city owned too hence useable for range of sports from rugby to moto cross etc.

Quote from: Brendan on November 23, 2023, 08:50:55 PMOff the Ball been making an appearance on my Spotify again this week haven't listened since they went behind a pay wall. Wonder will the new gaa subscription be worth the price when they announce it
The football pod wasn't behind the paywall - presume the sponsors AIB wouldn't have been happy? It just coincidentally went on break around paywall time, now it's back for 5 club episodes.

The thought of paying to listen to Paddy Andrews  :-\  other 2 lads are good but it's the Paddy show in his world

Quote from: Dreadnought on November 12, 2023, 05:53:25 PMNaomh Conaill absolutely stole that with last kick of the game. Gowna looked to have done just enough. 2 point lead always a dangerous one

Glenties poor or Gowna better than I thought initially?

Quote from: SHEEDY on October 03, 2023, 08:16:58 PMEx Derry manager Ciaran Meenagh has joined the Down senior set up as part of Conor Laverty's management team.
Very good appointment, brings lot of experience.

Can only be a positive for the whole set up. As you said a lot of experience which should hopefully help bring us on another level.

Quote from: Dag Dog on September 25, 2023, 12:18:20 PMWhat are the ones from China like, quality wise?

Found them to be really good. A bargain for playing 5 a side and the like. DH Gate have them for around £15

Totally outplayed. United will be after De Zerbi shortly. ETH miles off it with no identifiable playing style.
