So they tried to wrap Joe in cotton wool and had their friendly media jump to his support.
They did this knowing he wasn't right, but have no issue with how this is might skew a democratic process.

Now,the person who they didn't trust to step in us suddenly a saviour!

There are no good guys over there. It's a bad shower v a terrible shower.

The game is up. That picture has won Trump the election imo.

The Democrats can't attack Trump on morals as he has none and he just brazens it out.

I think the late rally and change of rider is too late.

Is it true that any Super Pac funds can't be switched over to a brand new candidate?

Quote from: Captain Scarlet on July 16, 2024, 11:32:44 AMA good manager would still not be able to get all the stars crammed into the starting 11. Then they will be on the back foot straight away.

We want Trent!, etc.

Plus, when you look at some of the players who stepped up, there is no guarantee of Watkins, Palmer and more producing year on year.

They still have no left back coming through either.

On a side note it is criminal they didn't start Trent. Their right flank left exposed by Big Daddy for both goals in the final and Spain capitalised.

In fairness the bauld Trent is well able to defend badly at the back stick too!

It's just where you play 3 at the back and still don't bring him in as a passer. But sure if Kane isn't fit to move then you miss the point of him anyway.

Like I said Rio and the like throw out names all day, but must want 13 lads on the field because he won't drop anyone either!

FFS! After they burned buses and Garda cars you'd think they would be ready but no...

This was going online since 3am. A lad sent away at 5am is back at 7.30am.

Open calls to rally at 6pm from lads travelling from all over the country.

How can't they get this under control?!

I said on the other semi-final thread how I looked out at the middle in extra time and the size of Armagh was serious, and the lads can move. Kerry were stumped.

Galway actually have a gair few big lads who can run too, so it will be a great battle there.

Some of Armagh's scores were breathtaking, but they needed them. Will it happen the next day? Galway still have so much more to get from Comer and Walsh (if near fit), so I think they have more scope to improve.

Should be a cracker and great to see two sets of fans who actually embrace it all and relish it.

It's honestly like they don't want to admit that they need the foreign lads with the actual game intelligence to run the show and allow them to just play their game as they want.

I am amazed that the rooftop hadn't one of their own up there. It just seems mad.

Maybe do they think that he is less likely to be a victim? Are they a bit lax?!

IF he was got, there would be all-out war. Biden's security detail will have to really mind him now.

On the woman, was she smiling at one stage? Although when you see some social media videos people's reactions are insane at times.

Christ the standard of punditry from the English is a joke. Juan Mata and Fabregas showing them up.

Get Palmer on...so take off Saka? Oh no!
Harry Kane needs to be dropped for Watkin...but he is aiming for the Golden Boot...oh well then...

As a group they seem together but on the pitch they all want to be heroes. Why can't foden do it? It's almost like he doesn't have Rodri, De Bruyne and Silva's class with him, or that Englan can't control the ball...

Bellingham plays as a False 9 for Real backed up by Kroos and he has 2 flyers either side. Essentially ALL the England front men want to be in the Number 10 spot.

Even Rice is meant to be a holding player, but he wants to bomb on, but without the protection he gets at Aresenal.

I love these combined 11s before the Final where barely any Spanish players make the team.

I have to laugh at some of the Twitter warriors who are terrified of another Trump term because of democracy are happy to make light of a fuckin assassination attempt!

Ye can't have it both ways lads! Just because you despise someone doesn't mean that this isn't a horrendous thing to happen. I'd say the massive fear would be a MAGA head-the-ball might fancy a response...

That picture of him is amazing and the power there, with the flag in the background will help to hand him the win.

Grugan was amazing linking up and even controlling the pace of the game at times. He covered some anount of ground. Kinda stuff you don't see on TV, selfless runs and making space, etc.

It was brilliant being there as a neutral and to see the actual joy in Croke Park. Like eff Kerry, they've won enough and their fans were outnumbered massively.

All the dirty ball won by Armagh too. The worry I had was that Armagh had a lot of big scores and still weren't pulling away, so I thought Kerry would come back at it.

In extra time I looked down and the size of Armagh in the middle third with men who can all move was serious. It really allowed them to push up. Burns looked great coming on and Rian O'Neill was awesome all day in fairness.

Great craic in and around the city afterwards too and Kerry fans seemed to accept time is up.

That interviews again just shows O'Connor doesn't care how he wins, BUT as I said he has the Celtic Crosses to back him up.

Geezer's team are nearly men in recent years and they do seem to be always the ones on the wrong side of these nail-biters. I think they have to be in front earlier and will need to go for it.

No matter who you are if there is a feeling of it happening again they won't do it coming to the end. There HAS to be mental scars from the last few years there.

I am saying all this from wishful thinking as I am heading to the game and I'd love a ding-dong battle!
