Good weekend all things considered. Massive week coming up now.

When you look back at the games so far its incredible that Liverpool are top given that they have not played particularly well in a  lot of games and had a few massive slices of luck (the derby, City penalty etc). Despite the desperation of some United fans to have Liverpool seen as favourites or "Champions Elect"  , (presumably so they can gloat on here when their rivals from across the city win it ::)::) )  I do not think I have spoken to one Liverpool fan who would have Liverpool as anything other than an outside chance. Liverpool have just got over the line in a few games while City, bar the match on Saturday have pretty much cruised through the first half of the season without their best player. Its a sign of how good the results have been that Spurs, despite their best ever start are six points back however I would not rule them out of mounting a challenge. You look at Liverpool's fixtures from now to the City game and you could see Spurs closing the gap by then.

United will be a real test this Sunday as despite how poorly they  have been for big parts of this year, Mourinho always does well at Liverpool and he knows how to set teams up when he is the underdog. Unfortunately if United were really 6/1 I think that is a great bet.

Hereís the reality though

1-1 with 5 mins left, 3-3 on aggregate. No away goals, has to end tonight.

Looking like penalties. Be interesting to know how many supporters travelled from Argentina for this game.

One of the best things about the GAA is the underdog winning. Take note HQ. Congrats  St Cloumbas will be some party in Longford tonight.

The so called unbeatable Manchester City are now the chasers and their injury list to key players is mounting. Meanwhile Liverpool supporters right now.

Funny how the Sky commentators kept saying we are temporarily top of the league. They really are dying for City to win it. Some craic if Chelsea win this evening ?
Chelsea win tonight and you can say this is Liverpool's Premier league title to lose.

Looking forward to tonights game for a change, Sunday was a massive confidence booster. Great to see some passion back in the side. Jose will have united fired up and if they get an early goal we might struggle to break them down. I'll take a draw but that would be disappointing on current form of both sides.

Disappointed today. 2 poor goals gifted to a very average United side. Sunday cobwebs were on display in first half. Second half we bossed things. Guendozi is a class act, so confident on the ball. Still unbeaten in 20 with a creeking defence. Any word of Monreal returning? Badly miss him, Kolasinac not in the same class defensively or going forward.

Onto the Saints this weekend and 3points

In fairness the two goals Arsenal got was probably bigger gifts. How did you make out Arsenal bossed things second half? they only had the lead for about 30 seconds in the second half and that second goal for Arsenal came at a stage when they weren't even creating chances. Arsenal pushed for the winner late on alright and DeGea somewhat made up for his earlier error.

lyon striker ada hegerberg wins the 1st womens ballon d'or, when shes getting her award the presenter asks her if she knows how to twerk, good to see some good old fashioned sexism is alive and well.

luca modric won the mens award. messi only came 5th behind modric, ronaldo, griezmann amd mbappe.

5th the mighty has fallen. Since 2008 the Ballon d'Or award has been won by either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, some dominance there.

A play off for 3rd in the group? as i would expect Switzerland, Denmark to finish ahead of Ireland in the group.

Denmark are no big shakes. Three 0-0 results this last year, two when Ireland were playing absolute dung. Ireland should be aiming for that 2nd spot.

This Irish side are dung and i don't see that changing much under McCarthy

Yeah but what does three nil-nils say about Denmark?
That even at our lowest ebb we were hard to beat.

Well yeah, there is that. But if Mick can instil a bit of belief, thereís no reason why Ireland canít beat Denmark (and Switzerland) at home, and get a draw away.

Denmark and Switzerland are nothing great and if the Irish were even a bit decent I would agree but there is two solid reasons why the Irish probably won't do that. The many poor quality players and an average manager.

Ah right, knew they had an injection of youth but didn't know it was to that extent. Seems like they've a perfect blend of youth and experience this year and they took their opportunity well.

Hard luck to Scotstown/An Bhoth

Unlucky against both Cross and GD. But you have to seize the moment

What was he thinking?

What has Enda Varley thoughts from the 2013 All Ireland final have to do with anything?

He should have held onto the ball and had a go himself. What the sh1te was he doing handing over the last free of the game to the youngest Mayo player on the pitch?

That youngest player happened to be Mayo's top scorer over the last number of years. Do you Mayo lads spent the winter watching re-runs of the lost All Ireland finals?

Thats a huge blow for Kildare with Daniel Flynn not around next year.

Just shows you how realistic the intercounty footballers are about their counties chances in the current climate.

I think it shows studying for a masters comes before amateur game and this summer is probably the only time to go traveling for a few months as he gets himself a full time job.

It's the same thing really. If there was a chance of a Leinster never mind an AI title, he'd be around. Leinster is especially a barren playing field for the all the counties in Leinster bar Dublin. Most want avoid the now annual embarrassment of getting a tanking from Dublin.

In fairness losing to Carlow by seven points was a bigger embarrassment than any tanking off the best team in the land.
