Wow, that time of year again. Who would have thought it?
Thankfully with the Covid restrictions behind us we are back to the real deal this year. Wales served its purpose but its Wales after all and it certainly threw up a couple of strange results. I’m a firm believer in the adage, horses for courses, and its great to see this years set of celebs back on familiar turf. A lot of the pre-tournament chat has been around disgraced Tory (a portmanteau) Matt Hancock leading to some of the field being overlooked. My thoughts on Runners and Riders below

Boy George- Rumours are rife that Boy George is the highest paid contestant in the shows 22 year history. This worries me from a punting perspective. Is Boy George there merely for the paycheck? Can he do it on a cold Tuesday night in Stoke so to speak? He is sure to have his fans but not for me. Avoid

Chris Moyles- The unrecognisable former DJ and presenter has lost a tonne of weight and has never looked so well. Chris’s new attitude is sure to serve him well as he seeks to go further outside his comfort zone. Chris seems a likeable chap and has an ew squeak.

Charlene White – Charlene is best known for presenting ITV news at 10. In fact, Charlene made history in 2014 as the first black woman to present the channels news at 10. Charlene no doubt possesses the strength and courage to go the distance here. However, citing that she may miss her 2 young kids at home could be a factor. Avoid

Sue Cleaver – Eileen Grimshaw. Can’t have her. It’s alright swapping the cobblestones for the jungle and it’s a well-trodden path as some of her colleagues have done well. However, can Eileen mind her own business in the jungle? She certainly cant in Wetherfield. Avoid.

Owen Warner – Who?

Jill Scott – Its coming home, its coming home. Jill is sure to go far here and is a live contender. Having climbed the equivalent of Everest in her sport, Jill will have no problem finding the determination and will power to go well. Jill was also a strong presence in the Lioness dressing room and is sure to be likable amongst her campmates and public alike.

Babatunde Aleshe – A genuinely funny guy, Babatunde will be popular in camp. Not sure Babatunde has the determination to succeed, however. Is he there to boost his tv image? He was on 3 separate channels the other night as I was flicking through him. In everything but the crib. Avoid.

Scarlette Douglas – The place in the Sun presenter is sure to be popular amongst the campmates. However, some of Scarlettes pre-match comments would make me wonder. Is Scarlette there to make up the numbers?

Matt Hancock – The joker of the pack. Only thing less surprising than Hancock going to the jungle to boost his ego is that he sold his story to the Sun. Couldn’t write it. The public are sure to vote Matt to partake in plenty of trials but could also keep him in there for sadistic entertainment. Avoid

Mike Tindall – The first Royal contestant. In a year where there was the poignant passing of the Queen, Mike is sure to prove popular. A winner on the field of play and punching well above his weight with Zara, Mike is sure to have the attitude to go all the way. 2nd fav at the minute but will be getting my hard earned.

Good luck all and enjoy the show. A 2 horse race. Mike to beat Jill in a thriller.

Cargin looked dead and buried at times today. However, like these great teams they found a way and never looked panicked. Congrats to them. Aghagallon can take plenty from defeat. They have some good young players and always carry a goal threat. They should be back

Disgraceful, if true.
The press should have a free run at giving mouthfuls of abuse at officials as they leave the field.
In my opinion.

What happened here?

We certainly got value for money from the games this weekend! Both senior games enthralling contests that went right to the wire.

Commiserations to both Creggan and PG1. It will be a tough one for both teams to take but both teams will be back strong again next year.

Congratulations and good luck to both Cargin and Aghagallon in the final.

So despite all the great and good (referees) gathered on the Dunsilly pitch on Saturday evening none of those eagle eyed individuals saw that a mistake was made when C Mc D theatrically brandished that red card in front of Pat Shivers.

Leaving Cargin to get on with it a man down in a gut sapping extra twenty minutes...

I thought Cargin lined out with 15 in extra time? Was it not Creggan who were a man down when Ruairi McCann was black carded?
And you thougt wrong......did you miss the ref brandishing the red card like a matador to big Pat.....Ruairi Mc Cann's black card kept him out for ten mns.
Cargin were down a man for the duration.......

yes seen the red card. i was at the match. It was between full time and extra time tho. Cargin played all of et with 15 men. Creggan played with 14 after Ruairi McCann was sent off. Were u at the match?

In the true interests of sport Caesar, bring it on. Nothing wrong with two camps going into a game brimming with confidence. You can be sure no one will underestimate the other, let's put it that way. The events of last year add a bit of spice alright, but that wasn't the fault of any player, it was a monumental c**k up by an experienced county official.

What was the monumental c*ck up last year out of interest? Another period of et agreed by both teams rather than the lottery of a penalty shootout?

Interesting take on monumental c*ck ups if that is what indeed u are referring to?

Seemed to have went backwards this year? In a relegation dog fight still. Tho im sure they might ask PG1 for a replay if they are beat
