Did Armagh only put out a weakened team against Fermanagh or what?

Shit. Our cunning plan has been worked out.

Not showing McManus's point (which is probably the score of the year) is incredible

The coverage is just so bad it's not even funny!

As for Spallane and Whelan ...Guff!!!

I used to look forward to the Sunday game now its a chore to watch it

They didn't show McManus point? Didn't notice that.

You're right though. TSG is brutal viewing.

I'm not here to gloat, but Monaghan made Tyrone to look very ordinary.

Two in a row Tyrone, but who did they beat?

Derry, Cavan (after replay) and just pipped Donegal
Derry, Donegal, Down and a tired/poor Armagh.

7 games, one convincing win v Donegal. That was it. I think this Tyrone team were overhyped. Maybe 12 points short of Dublin is about right.

They would have beat monaghan last year. Monaghan had a good league and have improved this year.

Two in a row ulster a good achievement at any point in time. Any other county would be happy with it.

We'll never know that.

Yes, absolutely. But it was too much thinking they could/can win the All Ireland.

Firstly, congrats to Fermanagh on their win and the deserved it thoroughly...Armagh were pathetic and got what they deserved.
Secondly, the ticket prices were a joke. I paid £24 to sit on the most uncomfortable D Rail timber fence ever...fecking joke.


I paid £30 in o'neills the morning of the game  :'(

Brewster seats are the most uncomfortable I've ever sat on.

Next to that is Tralee. No backs on the seats. Them tight Kerry hoors :D

Would i be right in saying yesterday was the first in a long time that no Crossmaglen men lined out for Armagh...Not sure about dates as i know there was something in the paper about this a few weeks back, think it was mid 90's

First time in 22 years apparently

Ray D’Arcy is an excellent broadcaster. His radio show is interesting and he is a brilliant interviewer. His TV show is probably affected by the caliber of guest RTE can get him after LLS has hovered up anyone with even slight celebrity status. He’s basically left with what’s left in the canteen. But he is definitely a gifted broadcaster. And a really nice guy.
Not everyone would agree with you Jenny.
But then like Miriam O'Callaghan while some like her she has her knockers

Maybe that's why some do like her ;)

Makes his hissy fit the other month even more ridiculous.

They obviously don't understand the complexities of such a move, because they never lived here.

Showed about 2 minutes highlights of the Clare v Limerick  and Tipp v Waterford football games tonight  ::)

Pat went into a rant about the state of the championship afterwards which we all knew about a long time ago. Whelo says smaller counties should 'buck up'.

Aye, on yer bike Waterford  ::)

RTE knew where the entertainment was. Why show that before Munster hurling at a venue where the home county won't cooperate with you?

Is it the county or Mickey Harte?

Lads would ye grow up with this Liverpool United rivalry. Ye Are not feckin' Mancs or Scousers and ye look ridiculous.

For the record, I'll be hoping Liverpool win next Sat. I've no money on them either. Just prefer to see them win.

When these lads go (Paddy Maloney and John Sheehan), can anyone fill their shoes? Ireland lacks musical legends to take over.

I said it for a long time, mcgeeney is a a spoofer. Surely his more ardent supporters can see this now.

Only a similar run like last year will save him now.

No harm Rufus but I have to disagree. Armagh were terrible but the crap that Fermanagh get up to is what is driving people away from football. They are not the only ones. How many bothered going to match today ! The sad thing is that Armagh do not need to improve their discipline to win matches. They need to learn a crap game plan and take a degree in the dark arts. Aidan Forker has went from a nark to a saint. He deserves credit for not losing the head considering the amount of off the ball abuse he got. Abuse that went through a myriad of players and management. Fermanagh people may say it is sour grapes but I live Gaelic football and the game is being destroyed. Just look at Mayo v Galway last week.

No harm taken at all - you are a regular poster whose views here and on our own site I would respect.

However I will disagree with you on this one. I wasn't at the game, but the TV images/ sounds clearly enabled the viewer to see and indeed hear what was going on. That cannot explain our wrong options, misplaced passes, awful shooting, carrying the ball into contact, terrible indiscipline in the tackle - as was the case in the League Final - to name but a few.

I cannot really disagree with your analysis of Armagh. I just don't think Fermanagh were a better football team. They were just better at destroying the game and winning at any cost. It is these tactics now endemic in the game that are driving people away. I would even guess it was one reason you didn't go!

It was the reason I didn't go (mostly). The game 95% of the time is diabolical. I've better things to spend my money on. It's bad enough watching it at home (when I can even be bothered to do that).

34 % possession must be the lowest ever for a cup final winning team? even big underdogs Wigan got 48% possession v Manchester City in 2013 final.

Arsenal 2005? Think it was 99% to 1%
