GAA Discussion / Re: Down v Armagh (Park Esler 16:00) 19/05/2019

When all the Armagh forwards are fit they will have a serious unit.  Itís all their fouling machines at the back who will ensure they donít go far.  Never ceases to amaze me how many defenders just bog into the attacker, give away a free, and then moan about it.  That said, play acting when fouled is creeping in at an alarming rate.

And they never learn! Stand the forward up, make life difficult for him, and wait for a bit of cover. Don't bloody dive in.

Indeed. And we gave you Greg Blaney!

Glad to see the back of him!  A massive influence in that team. Seemed to drive them on.

Sorry guys but that was very poor from McGeeney.  You can't have a manager at that. Firstly, it makes himself look daft, it shows a lack of control and focus, and it sends a bad message out to the players.  We lack enough discipline as it is, without the manager at that.  I've never seen that from a successful manager.

Good resolve shown by us to come back in extra time when 3 points down.  Almost blew a golden opportunity in normal time with Down's red card and their keeper thinking he was a half back (an accident waiting to happen and probably the one bad piece of coaching by Tally).  The lack of game management is a problem as we've seen over the past couple of years.  We decided to sit back a bit and play keep ball at 5 up but we're not tight enough at the back to see out games that way - we don't close down the spaces and when we do we concede cheap frees.  I thought all over the pitch from the off we sat off too much in general and we weren't brave enough to close down and go for the ball. Down had far too much time to play around us.  I thought Down looked a very well coached and drilled team whereas we relied more on the individual talents of players like Clarke, O'Neill, Murnin etc.

But, any kind of win in the championship for this set of players will do at this point and it's a hurdle they've managed to overcome.  Hopefully it will spur the team on and they will take a bit of belief into the Cavan game.

Would have thought Tally would have Down organised, and set up very well defensively. Would expect to see Down get plenty of bodies back in defence. That in itself will cause this Armagh side a lot of problems.

Were you at our game with fermanagh

Fair enough, but this is the championship. I'm not sure one league game is enough to go on.  I hope we have found a way to deal with these tactics - we've struggled for a good few years now.

Is there a curtain raiser?

Down v Tyrone minor, I think. Hard to know who to cheer for there.

South/North Armagh - Tyrone
Mid Armagh - Down

Any sign of those 'justice for Suarez' t-shirts lads?

if you want to talk about a club with absolutely zero morals




You've missed a great opportunity here to throw in your usual few other well rehearsed jibes.

Pity City couldn't show a bit more graciousness. May act in some small way as a extra motivator for Liverpool, but I'd expect the rivalry to get stoked up a bit next season anyway.

Motivator? You not think 30 years of not winning it is not enough motivation?

Yep I agree.  I did say though that something like this could act as an extra motivator in a small way.  If I was Klopp I'd use it anyway.

What luck had Liverpool along the way to the 2005 final?

Ghost goal v Chelsea. What looked like a good goal from Del Piero ruled out for offside v Juve.

If football followed logic, Barca and Ajax would be playing on June 1st?
Which is why i said maybe another unexpected twist will happen.

Teams always get a bit of luck here and there on the way to a final.

All Arsenal supporters will be hoping that Spurs lose this final. Will be hard to believe it if Spurs pick up old big ears while Arsenal with some great players and teams down the years never won it.

Their run to the final reminds me of Liverpool in 2005 who lost a similar amount of games in the league, just about got out of the group and had a bit of luck along the way to reach the final.  All logic points to a Liverpool win on June 1st. They have a better manager,defence and forward line but maybe just maybe this years Champions league campaign has one last unexpected outcome?

What luck had Liverpool along the way to the 2005 final?
Beat Leverkusen 6-2 on agg, were cruising against Juve in the 1/4 Final until Scott Carson made a balls of it and allowed them to score, went to Turin and played heroically to get a 0- 0 result,then held Chelsea scoreless for 2 games to reach the final.
No luck involved.

We were lucky Rafa decided to bring on Didi Hamann in the final for the second half  :P

Whoever scores the first goal, I definitely can't see the other team coming back.

Kinda happy that I will miss this as I will be on a plane. However 2 fantastic managers but the sad thing is instead of the winner been feted for winning the biggest prize in club football we can all see the loser being vilified for not having won a trophy with his current club.

Anyway Liverpool for me, the lesser of two evils but you can't beat tradition. Could be a classic, final score 4-2.

They will only be vilified by clueless idiots.

Klopp is doing extraordinary work, no matter how the final ends up.

Poch has been hamstrung by a lack of squad depth and loss of his star striker, yet still made it through to their first Champions League final, and first European final of any kind for 25 years.

I wonder who springs to mind....  :D

Wasn't really thinking about the likes of OTB. His troll offerings aren't worth consideration.

But there will be supposedly knowledgeable people, including in the media, who will fall back on "but he hasn't won anything" horseshit for whichever man loses.

Tim Sherwood springs to mind!

I know what Dinny means though. Don't know the stats but would guess the team that scores first in the cl final usually wins, and finals tend to be tight affairs, with not many goals?

50 50 game.  The league position will count for little in this game.  Both sides will know they can win it.  Wouldn't be surprised if it's a stalemate and then penalties.
