The great 1-in-a-row team

1 more than quite a few other counties.

This day should be an official holiday in Armagh.

Footballer of the Year Nominees
Stephen Cluxton (Dublin)
James McCarthy (Dublin)
Andy Moran (Mayo)
David Clarke (Mayo)



Two names taken from the Sunday Game panel and two tokens.
Though I do think Andy Moran is an easy choice

Moran should get it, McCarthy will get it.

You'd think all that money Tyrone saved on those foam rollers would have paid for some floodlights.

was it not the 2 teams most wanted to see based on a replay last year..........he's not breaking any moulds but in fairness he stated the obvious there, most neutrals once their own are gone want either a dublin mayo or dublin kerry final whether that suits you or not

AOF said the same. Everybody wants to see the 2 best teams in the final. Why?

Ok so Dublin and Mayo are the top two teams. Do I want to see them in the final year after year? I don't think so! It's disrespectful to 20-odd counties, more or less, we don't want you near the final cos you're all shite.

I'd have been happy watching Louth v Fermanagh in an AI final. The AI final is a great occasion no matter what teams are there.

Any truth in the rumours of Jamie Clarke to Kilmacud Crokes ?

Were they the only club with a latte machine? ;)

TSG panel couldn't help themselves but get digs in at Tyrone. tyrone were not a feature of the weekends events yet every now and then they'd have a wee dig at them.

Tyrone really punch above their weight in the minds of THG panelists.

Tyrone don't help themselves with their style of play and RTE boycott. They're easy pickings for ridicule.

Without sounding like I'm disrespectful Mayo... but people belittle Armagh's one All Ireland, great teams win more than one etc. And while it could easily have worked out better or worse for us in terms of AI's, the one we did win brought so much joy to the county (two would have brought more. But anyway...)

But it would be a real shame if this Mayo team came so close and were remembered for not winning any AI titles.

I hope Mayo do go on and win that AI title with this team. Their efforts have merited it.

The issue here is surely the fact that such a big county like Tyrone has only one floodlit venue in Omagh

The bigger issue here is a cup of tay has doubled in price for Wednesday night!

Nice of RTE to miss the teams coming out onto the field due to their yapping and then to talk over the trophy presentation too.

Maybe it was the above, the short captains speech, or that Dublin won yet again, but the whole presentation/celebration smelled of a Junior B county final win, and not the biggest day in Irish sport.
Was at the game & fair play to Dublin they're a great team to come through in so many tight finals. But the speech from Cluxton was depressing - the most soulless, passionless, uninspiring words from an AI winning captain. He looked like he was reading it off a sheet & wouldn't have looked out of place at a funeral

Gavin and Cluxton being interviewed together didn't exactly make for riveting viewing. No emotion. Nothing of interest to say. That said I'm sure they don't give a flying one once they win.

People bemoan the loss of the characters and personalities in snooker, tennis etc. Now GAA players are the same. Robotic drones churning out the same old shite.

Whatever happened to the AI final MOTM cracking out a song at the team function on TSG? I recall Mickey Linden in 91 or 94 singing and Brolly in 93. The most we got last night was GAA president telling us all how great the c'ship is and will be with the Super 8, and Jack McCaffrey and his cronies acting like a bunch of childer.

Winners are out 4 days later too.

Another example of how much the county team rule the roost, and clubs are an afterthought.

Ger Canning is doing his 33rd all ireland.
        
One way of looking at the history of the human group is that it has been a continuing struggle against the veneration of ‘crap’.

Every year I pray he'll announce this is his last.

Please God he'll say it this year.

Why would he have a say on whether this is your last year?

 :P
