''His wife Eleanor Donaldson, 58, is facing four charges including aiding and abetting the offence.''

Does that mean turning a blind eye to what was going on?

I've noticed that none of the papers are referring to him as ''Sir''
Arsenal are now asking questions of City. 5-0 tonight not only got them 3 points it improved their GD. They have 2 more games out of the way. If City draw - Arsenal have it in their own hands.

2 weeks.

Two Weeks at this stage of the season is like saying he'll be back for next season.

When you've time on your hands write down the amount of points the likes of United Arsenal Chelsea Spurs finished behind city in the past 6,7 years then revisit your musings 🤣🤣🤣

I was playing Devils advocate......  ;)
I like Davy Burke. It's a tough grind being a Manager of Roscommon. They mix it with the big boys regularly and are expected from that consistency to move to the next level. This next level is not easy achieve. Teams pop in and pop out of the next level regularly.

McStays inside knowledge of Roscommon meant that he would know a plethora of their weak spots. Nobody knows the weakness of a team better than the teams own manager. And it's not so long since McStay was in the Rossie dressingroom.

The ambush of last year was not going to happen this time. Mayo did the minimum to stay in Division One. This date would have been larger on the horizon this year.

Both Galway and Mayo now meet to see who will be Number One Seeds under the guise of a Connacht title. Both have a lot of work to do. Galway are in bonus territory, as they won't be as bad as they were on Saturday and nobody will be talking them up. They will be able to drift into the final with little or no fanfare.

After the weekend displays, other counties that are not provincial champions will be hoping to end up in the Connacht champions group.
You'd forget we are still in a title to speak! In any other League it would be, but the loss of form and Man City's invincibility makes it a slow death.

Ah, but last year they were fresher after as they had not won the treble the year before.

United only lost by 2-1 in last years final. It's a one off game and maybe some of their players who have been jogging around the pitch for the last 9 months might decide to put in a shift. It is the chance to win a FA Cup winners medal after all. There is still some value to it.

The bad news for Utd is City are out of the Champions League. Those 3 games of distraction would have been a help.

It's a bit like the meeting Dublin in the Leinster Final. It's nice to get there, but once your there you realise it's not the 90's anymore.
Roscommon have gone flat. Mayo's purple patch has killed the game.

When you're a Marquee Forward you have to look for protection from the Referee.
Quote from: marty34 on April 20, 2024, 08:00:18 PMDonegal's day for sure. Were the better team on the evening.

But this day will soon be forgotten. Things move on. Derry will re-group and Donegal will move on. One game doesn't make a summer.

Derry will move on and are still a top team.

That also counts for the League Final. People on here were losing the run of themselves about a game Derry could not see out twice.
Today showed that the league is far from a formality. There will be a few more twists and turns.
The Dublin Dominance is not just the players, it's the constant of playing at home for the Championship in Croke Park. Players getting up in their own beds, short travel to game, familiarity with the ground-staff, Familiarity of Dressing room, Familiarity of the pitch, Crowd influencing Referee decisions, Superior Crowd getting behind the players, the Hill, the Songs being played before the Match and at half time over the PA, the PA announcer, Familiarity of Match day rituals of Croke Park. The list goes on.
