GAA Discussion / Re: Armagh v Kerry

Well that was mental. Don't know where to start with that but the obvious thing is the impact of the subs. Jarly Og had an absolutely huge impact on that game and I'm not a huge fan, McQuillan and Soupy were both excellent as well, Aidan Nugent had a mare and will be glad to get another day out. I thought my own clubman Joe McElroy had his best game in an Armagh jersey. One to win and we won.

We'll not definitively know unless Pogacar approaches the Tour as his one and only goal for the year like Vingegaard does. Freshness after a bad accident v a (normal person's) careers worth of wins already in the first half of the season.

I think Vingegaard probably wins from here, but I sincerely hope not. Team Pogacar

England looking very good going forward but defence a bit iffy looking. Foden on it big style 2nite. Was never a penalty but Dutch lucky to be drawing 1-1 at ht.

I don't expect us to win. The only thing that will really piss me off is if we play skitterball like Derry did in the Q/F or the way we did in the league in Tralee in 2023, we have to be much braver.

Quote from: Maroon Manc on July 09, 2024, 11:11:54 AMJudging by ticketmaster looks like there'll be a big crowd Sunday.

Sundays will always get a bigger crowd imo - Saturday games are awful, hate the sight of them, travelling to & from Dublin with Saturday traffic, giving up your Saturday evening/night (if driving). I actually think Saturday AI semis should be banned!
McVerry did play a lot of Senior football for Armagh, a decent career in an unspectacular team. Tasker probably more talented but not committed, think he had runs ins with the law?? Don't think he played senior or if he did it wasn't very memorable or long.
Congrats to Derry, 2 in a row is some achievement.

Armagh will be sick tho, 3 butchered goal chances & a soft penalty. Derry got on top for about 10 minutes and the damage was done.
If that's a penalty he's set an incredibly low bar
There's been more turnovers than completed passes

I've flip flopped on McGeeney a couple of times, the Monaghan game a bit of a nadir, the Donegal league final was infuriating as well. But - I've then watched 3 months of Armagh club football to date and you honest to god watch it sometimes and realise our current County team strength is a huge achievement - a lot of the Armagh support don't bother with club football at all so are largely oblivious.

Quote from: From the Bunker on July 05, 2024, 10:45:48 PMRonaldo playing a full 120 minutes. Jez, Martinez had no balls. He was a virtual spectator for it all. Diego Jota must be sick.

Cause that's what lost it?

Jota can prove how good he is at international level from here on in.

I think he's a cracker btw

Ronaldo had very little involvement. Yes, he was a big part in them being toothless up front.
Jota is nearly 28, he's not some young lad waiting for his chance. This could be his last Euro's.
100% Correct, Ronaldo was utter shite, Martinez was worse with his calls / lack of.  MR2 you need to take the fanboy blinkers off.

Worst tournament I can remember

Was looking at a Hyundai i130 for some of mine, it's a tidy enough looking car, much lower group insurance & very low. car tax
