GAA Discussion / Re: Paddy O'Rourke's comments on intercounty demands
« on: February 15, 2018, 11:51:54 PM »
Meath are not the Meath of old and probably due to a lack of underage success for years and club football that has only improved recently. Basically Meath have to walk before they can run. Meaths aims should be to reach the super 8s and try to gain promotion to div one this spring. If the rest of the Meath players attitude was like O Rourkes "this is not worth it" then Meath will only stay where they are and make no progress at all.

The question remains does the toil match the reward? I think in every county bar Dublin the answer is a resounding no. Even the players involved now probably regularly ask themselves if what the IC game has become is worth it.

Is the toil less for a Dublin  player ??

Salah has been above average value for money

Unfortunately I would doubt he sees out his contract at Liverpool

The police evidence will obviously be huge. Looks to me like the defence are going to have to say the lads panicked when they were brought in for questioning........and I think they're all going to have to take the stand to give their "real" version of what happened. They'll have a job to be as convincing as the alleged victim.
Lawyer friend told me that PJ just submitted a written statement, didn't do a police interview.

Makes it strange that he would deny the act.  I wonder did he have a gf and if that influenced his statement!?

think he has bigger worries now than a girlfriend

Kevin Walsh was on off the ball last night, he was on for a while but didn't really give much away. He talked about the importance of staying in Div 1 so make of that what you will. He talked a little abut Paddy Tally and how Mary's were his priority until they were out of the Sigerson so can't imagine he's spent too much time with the panel yet, from what I know about Tally I can't imagine he'd had anything to do with that kickout strategy.

He's annoyed about the criticism he's taken after the Tipp, Roscommon & kerry games in the last 2 years and deflecting from it by talking about promotion and the games against Mayo.

He's annoyed is he? As a Galway fan, I'm annoyed about the goalkeeping fiasco last year, the lack of a kickout strategy, the continuous selection of players out of their depth, the untimely and erroneous substitution policy, the heavy defeats in all of these (plus Donegal in 2015) games, the lack of courage against a tame Kerry side last year. Kevin needs to wake up and smell the coffee, Alan Mulholland did no worse and got lambasted for it.

Goalkeeping fiasco? Is there much better options than Lavelle or Power in Galway? Neither are what could be described as good goalkeepers.

i suspect like ourselves its making the best out of a very limited goalkeeping pool

dotn follow soccer too closely but doesnt the time and patience shown by mgmt to Firmino in the past show the benfits of the approach, can be applied to a lot of star minors and u21s who are expected to be senior superstars year 1 and are labelled flops if they have 2 poorish games

when one hears the bluest of blueshirts Coveney basically saying SF had delivered a working deal it really sums up how dysfunctional the DUP are

Real shot for at least four of the five English sides to make the last four now. Only Chelsea look really dodgy.

Do you think more than 4 of them can make the last  4 ????
