Did anyone watch "Pressure Point" on Netflix. Decent movie but not your usual Blockbuster but you'll be satisfied with it.

My only concern is Armagh's experienced players now are starting to show their age and are not finishing games or their usual 7 or 8/10 performances are now a 6/10. So far KMcG has managed this well and are replaced with younger men who do the job, they still have a job to do and I hope they get their just rewards for their effort and hard yards they've put in over the last decade.
My heart is telling me we can win this by 2pts but my head is telling me to wise up and calm down. go and enjoy the day and see what it brings. Whatever happens I hope the best team on the day wins and we're not shafted by a referee decision or that we didn't go for it when we had the chance. I would love Kerry to get someone black carded with 10 mins to go and KMcG to push up and really go for it instead of keeping an extra man back in defence. We all know that won't

A lot of people are on holiday TBF, a lot of people are also struggling for cash based on the number of games recently.

In all my years I've never seen a more low key All Ireland semi final in my life, very little talk or buzz around the town and I'm not aware of how many tickets have been purchased but Croke Park will probably be just over half full which is crap for atmosphere

I really can't see a shoot-out here as both teams won't risk it. Kerry will start favourites and rightly so, if Armagh can hang in there and don't let it get away from them then they have a chance. I just want Armagh to have a go (at the right time and not when you're 6pts behind). If i have to travel back home having lost by 2-3pts playing full defensive football and not taking the shackles off I'll be well pissed off. I know if you open up too much Kerry will tear you a new ass but there has to be a happy medium somewhere between defensive and attacking.

I do believe from my eye test that there is not much separating the 4 teams left for SAM, Kerry will always be fav's if Dublin are gone and that's life. The other 3 can all beat each other on any given day, I've said it for 2-3 years now but if Galway can get their strongest team out fit and firing they will be hard to stop

Would agree with most of that article...
Quote from: From the Bunker on July 05, 2024, 01:27:34 AMIdah is Irish and I always hope for Irish Lads to succeed. But I think Celtic should stay away, He's not good enough.

That's a bit harsh...thought he done really well at Celtic. The lad has talent, no doubt. He came from Norwich with his confidence really low and BR got him enjoying his football again, sometimes if you find the right club and manager it can do miracles for your career. BR will develop him further and make him a better player

Yeah, everyone seemed really delighted for him too, MC could win tomorrow again as the stage is set right up again for the sprinters.
Way to early to panic guys...I'd rather wait and get the right signings than rush into it and buy crap. BR seems to be calling the shots so lets wait and see what happens. If come 3 weeks time and things haven't improved much then it's time to panic but the transfer window is only open two weeks.
I know we've known from Feb that Joe was retiring but lets wait and see what comes in...I just hope we don't c**k this up but I really feel this time we'll get the right players in

He's some pup that POG, taking full advantage of everyone else's lack of fitness and miles in the legs. UAE are stronger this year too which is a big help to POG. Jumbo Visma were stronger last year and totally raped POG but the roles have reversed this year. The big crash a few months ago has worked in his favour too.
GAA Discussion / Armagh v Kerry

Well guys, already the crap talk has started that Armagh are going to play the same as Derry and a lot of people are dismissing Armagh and no point in us turning up. Not sure of his name now but read last night somewhere that some commentator said Kerry v Donegal or Galway will be a good final. I'm kinda glad that we are being dismissed but a wee bit pissed off too that we don't get the respect we deserve for being there.

Anyway on the game itself...Should be good, Armagh will be defensive but will offer a lot more going forward than Derry and most other teams Kerry have played this year. We will need to keep them close and not let them get away from us as it'll open up and we will get it tight. I'm hopeful but long enough in the tooth to know Kerry will be the favourites and we will have to play to our max to beat them but we can do it.
Quote from: Rossfan on June 24, 2024, 10:14:52 AMNo point us turning up at all it seems.

Ohh, here's the soft talk now. The big Yellow bus is delighted with the draw. 50/50 game
Quote from: 5times5times on June 24, 2024, 09:40:33 AMHard to know for Armagh fans who they would have preferred.
Louth have a much better defence and pack the defence, which Armagh tend to struggle against.
Roscommon have a much better attack, which means game will me more open?

Louth will likely be Sunday.

Armagh Rosc & Kerry Derry Sat... But which game goes 2nd? Kerry & Derry have a poor support, so should they go 1st?
Donegal Louth & Dublin Galway Sun

I agree, If Armagh are on first and lose then the fans will empty out and leave the second game a damp squib regarding atmosphere.
There usually is a shock somewhere...If Roscommon were to beat Armagh that would not be a shock. Derry beating Kerry would not be a shock either but the other two would be...Knowing Armagh's history of draws they could do an extra time job assuming there is no replays?.
