I was there on Friday evening and the views are good. Expensive? A bit yes, but feck it, there's no pockets in a shroud. Get your fill in Weatherspoons beforehand, then piss it all away on the 23rd floor.

(Note - they don't allow entry to drunks or riff-raff)
Someone on twitter got a right roasting for making a riff-raff comment last night.

My sisters were up on top floor on Saturday afternoon - the newest addition to the family (sister's fiancť) thought he'd try to impress the new inlaws by buying a bottle of champagne...£100 later he'd started a very very expensive round.

The HBO show, Succession, is quite a good show. Slow start but gets quite good. Based on Rupert Murdoch and his family supposedly.
4 episodes in now.  It's OK.  I hate all the characters.  Probably the way it's supposed to be.

There was never a stage I thought Monaghan would win.
We'll agree to differ as I thought they would when they went ahead. The atmosphere all around seemed to change too

Unfortunately Tyrone immediately got the goal. Stroke of luck that the deflection from the block landed at Sluddens feet

Small margins decided by the ref. A few of the frees were laughable, well they would be if it wasnt such high stakes and Monaghan might never be back.

Sickened by the diving. Plus say when McManus rolled his man in 2nd half and played the pass soccer style only to be blown back for a non push in the back...Mon went from a 3 on 1 goal chance to Tyrone scoring a point in 30 seconds

Ref awful yesterday too. He was awful in the Dublin Longford game too...giving everything to the Dubs and nothing for Longford....totally buckling to the hill

Seen Dublin 5 times at Croker this year. Cannot see Tyrone stopping them...dont think they have enough. Would love anyone to stop Dublin as would most of the country ...but not Tyrone. Their slabbering (Hampsey to McManus after misses) and diving etc have left the whole country to have no real love for them
Agree and while i want the dubs to win the AI I also see the need for better competition. Not from tyrone though. Impossible to like them with all the carry on that they bring with them. That it goes largely unpunished is the biggest problem.
Glad to see another bitter sickened!  Hope you were puking at the result!   ;D ;D

naw - this night 2 weeks i'll be laughing

Whilst I'm looking forward to it, I'm not expecting that much humour from Francis's sermon...

One of our own gaaboarders was on the Marty Squad this evening...well done.

Good man Main street - you typify all of the Monaghan supporters I encountered today.  So so gracious.

Everything went right for Monaghan in Omagh in May, everything. They were scoring ridiculous points from every angle they wouldn't any other day and this coupled with us losing 2 key forwards early on meant it was always an uphill struggle. Even with this in their favour they never pulled away until near the end.

We are a far better fitter outfit since then. As they said on the Sunday game last night, our bench has contributed 8 points per game which is an incredible card to play. I fully expect Tyrones conditioning to see them through.
We really really need to watch giving away frees though in scorable positions. (Anything past their own 45 with Beggans ability  ::) ) Do a number on McManus like we did on Murphy yesterday and we're grand.

It's amazing the excuses you lot can come up with. Everything went right for us and everything went wrong for yous, wasn't that awful unfortunate. Seems like a formality this weekend now that your horrid luck is gone  ::)
I remember thinking the score flattered us and I had no complaints. However, I also think weíve improved.  Really looking fwd to it as it should be pretty evenly matched.

Uncharacteristic misses from Murphy.
Thatís the fault of that long grass in Ballybofey.

P Harte my MoM in second half, superb.

He was on the deck being treated for a dodgy ankle two mins before that chance - may have still been feeling the effects.

Didn't realise that. You from Strabane or Glenmornan?
Neither. Ballymagorry  ;D But we talked about it at the time because my (71 year old) father brought it up, and heís a harsh enough critic, and if he makes excuses then I generally listen to him. If you went to St Colmanís between 1970 and 2000 youíll know what I mean.

Norf, don't be worrying about what people think of Cathal.
I noticed it last year too that loads of fans are just wanting him to fail so they can say they're first impression on him was right

He has 12 point this year all from play and has improved hugely on last year. He was unlucky with that ball through to him as he had to slow down for it to come into his hands and Mannion did very well to make such a clean tackle.

Cathal seems to believe in himself which is the main thing and I don't think its by chance he's started every game this year.

McShane doing well this year, but from what I saw (didn't see a replay) it looked like he made a complete balls of that chance.  Maybe you are right though, because he is fast enough yet seemed to slow down before being dispossessed.

He made a balls of it from what I could see., although let the first man who has never made a balls of a goal chance step forward .......

He has been playing very well in fits and starts, certainly much better than last year and deserves his place at the minute.

He certainly didn't make a balls of that point v Meath.

Not what I expected today.  Hit by both currency and the mortgage increase!

There you are, she's a sell out. It'll be a case of having to land up in Ballybofey and take my chances.
I ended up with two spare stand tickets for Healy Park the other week and couldn't give them away.  A harsh lesson learned in getting tickets for people who are only half-interested...
So no doubt there will be others like me on Sunday.

Sounds like a great trip. Did the trek through the fjords involve any hiking? My OH would be really interested in that.

Surely the west Tyrone fans will travel in huge numbers?

You would think. Theyíre closer to Ballybofey than much of Donegal.

Maybe if there a cricket curtain raiser
Ahem - plenty of us will be there.

I do admit to being in Ballybofey much more often than Omagh when growing up.

Most West Tyronies will already be in Donegal in their caravans in Rossnowlagh or Bundoran at this time of year anyway  ;D
