Quote from: AustinPowers on Today at 01:30:19 PMBack to childhood here

There was a great  whiff when you opened a packet of  the old football panini stickers

A new pencil case

I can still  recall  them both now years later

Aye, and then the hoor would end up smelling of pencil shavings, even if it never seen a pencil

Something metaphysical about all this

Like for example, i've never tasted a bag of pennies, but for some reason i'm sure i know what it tastes like 🤷�♂️

Leeks and butter frying off with garlic and then bacon

Fresh basil

And a quite a few already mentioned

Horny stuff altogether

Forget Casement as a multi-sport venue or a vanity project/monolith

Create it as a GAA specific venue factoring in the notable features that make the best medium size venues around the country what they are, what contributes to atmosphere, playing surface and amenities ... ditch bells and whistles where they aren't needed

Why not create a really amazing 12-15,000 capacity and have it as the home of the Ulster Club final and Ulster colleges, and of course Antrim club championship and county teams, leaving Clones for Ulster Final at county level

Even Brewster at 18,000 is never filled, quit with the white elephant stadiums already

Quote from: Lamh Dhearg Alba on June 19, 2024, 02:47:37 PMPlenty of questions about this team but Meyler being too dedicated and Darragh arrogant?  :D A few more like those two and we'd take some stopping.

Will be interesting to see how we shape up Saturday and if some momentum is building. Real shame about Conn. Super footballer but simply has to improve his discipline.

Matty Donnelly must be pulling his hair out

Quote from: Truthsayer on June 19, 2024, 12:11:57 PMThe denial system from Derry supporters is incredible. Gallagher put that together including back to back Ulster titles and Harte has dismantled it. No-one cares bout the league as long as you don't get relegated. For God's sake Mayo won it last year... who knew!
The championship campaign has been a laughing stock...

u ok hon?

Quote from: Truthsayer on June 18, 2024, 11:21:59 PMJust listened to that podcast. Is getting repetitive alright. He hasn't liked Harte long before he went to Derry and use of C word is not acceptable. Says a lot of truth bout the mess he's made of Derry but we've heard it before. Also is not wrong that many in Tyrone are disgusted with what Hartes done (a lot of folk in Derry not too happy with it either).

Anyone getting hot under the collar that a man is managing a specific football team needs to cop on, and thats before reflecting on the incredible force for good Mickey has been in his life, the indelible mark he has left in his community not only at local and regional level but nationally. If the terrace and pub loud mouths and keyboard warriors had half the drive i'm sure they'd have better things to do, alas they don't, and talk is cheap
So Brolly hadn't made an indelible mark on community and nationally with his transplant campaign?
Harte & Derry has been a disaster ... end of.
 

Yes Joe's transplant campaign was a remarkable success and achievement, don't recall any claim to the contrary, does that give him the right to platform the abuse of Mickey Harte?

Derrys first senior national title in more than 15 years, absolute disaster by anyones standards 👀

Or the standards of armchair experts?
Same pups will be back lampooning Ten Hag in a few weeks

Anyone anywhere abusing Mickey Harte for managing Derry needs to give their head a wobble

You'd have to get up early to catch the Epilepsy Society off guard

really

Got an apology that will surely help millions sleep better at night, knowing they took the fight right to the heart of the oppressor

Quote from: tiempo on June 17, 2024, 04:51:39 PMA considerable weighting would be based on the spread of bets received, more people betting on Ukraine would thin their price and create a value price for Romania in this instance, in other words you wouldn't have got that price in a Romanian bookies. Actuary and algorithms will have the bookies in the green don't worry - always nice to beat them the odd time though, there's money to be made if you are smart and study the right markets

Interesting. Would such things happen in our regional market, say a bookies in Kerry offering shorter odds than a bookies in Tyrone on a Kerry Win?

Short answer, no

GAA betting is a small niche market

Also the number of independent high street bookies is practically nil, you might get a very slight fluctuation between shops over the course of an hour but they'd have corrected rapidly, it's a tech industry

Ironically GAA betting has also been an achilles heel of sorts to the likes of William Hill and Paddy Power, they don't always have the inside track as it's so parochial, especially the club scene, but county also, like the rise of Louth, I'm sure there was money to be made there, it's whether you're across the emerging trend and end of the day your gut feel/read is correct

Quote from: Pub Bore on June 17, 2024, 04:01:40 PMRomania 3 - 0 Ukraine.  Bit of a surprise?

Bookies had Ukraine at 7/10 this morning, think romania were about 3/1. They were unbeaten in qualifying whereas Ukraine beat Iceland in a play off to get there. Dont know why bookies would price it like that.

Quote from: imtommygunn on June 17, 2024, 11:32:31 AMDown the home stretch with the game in the melting pot you need to break the gain lines and get the ball to your clutch player in the scoring zone coming round the loop and pop it over.

😂 points for effort there 👏

Please someone brighten my day and consolidate all the GAA tropes into one single manageable generic phrase/sentence suitable for the punditry master race, its got to be possible

Quote from: thewobbler on June 17, 2024, 08:52:14 AMEngland are effectively playing with no left side, and will be found out plus some when they meet a balanced side.

Southgate has been there a decade or so. This is entirely on him.

The players have to shoulder some responsibility for their output too especially basic errors and general passive shiteness

It's international football and it's Southgate, so it is going to be generally conservative and no risk taking.

Any one else finding Bellingham hard to watch, with the throwing himself about and the moaning.

Unreal talent but was finding this with Real last season too, hard to watch.



His celebration on the final whistle of a ropey 1-0 win when they were hanging on for most of the second half was nothing short of embarrassing

Remind me more of the honey monster than mentality monsters
