Quote from: Snapchap on Today at 10:36:17 AMApparently Harte (who is well known for remaining mostly calm/emotionless on the sideline for his entire career) is only calm/emotionless on the sideline for Derry becuase "he doesn't give a f**k" about Derry because he's not from Derry. Fanning asked him was he not the same on the sideline for Tyrone, to which Joe bizzarely replied "I don't know what went on in the Tyrone dressing room".

Dont know how Fanning sticks him.

Must be sick of him at this stage.

See below link to Joe Brolly's latest podcast where he refers to Harte as an Intruder and hails the Offaly U20's. Is the Offaly U20 Manager not a Limerick man. Could be wrong on this?

Quote from: SouthOfThe Bann on June 04, 2024, 09:15:50 PMArmagh are now 3rd favourites for the all Ireland with some bookies.

A meteoric rise in one weekend.

They've looked good in Ulster final and at the weekend.

But we need to be wary of recency bias.

Would love to see them get to a semi or final however.
Bookies and punters are expecting the group winners to reach the last four.

Armagh couldn't have got any closer to semi finals the last two years with Quarter final penalty shoot out losses. Back in Div 1 again next year which will be their 4th year in the last 5 years in the top division the job and improvement McGeeney has brought to Armagh is underrated IMO.

The funny thing is that Paddy Power have Armagh as favourites for the Galway game.

But Galway as 3rd favourites for All Ireland ahead of Armagh.

Boyle have Armagh at 3rd favourites however.

Paddy Power expecting the return of Comer and Finnerty in a last 12 game it seems.

Quote from: Norm-Peterson on June 04, 2024, 03:43:16 PMWhy do the media keep inflicting us with South Armagh accents? As if McConville wasn't enough, now we have Aaron Kernan and they also keep interviewing Rian O'Neill.

Rian O'Neill has a lot more Southern Accent than his brother Oisin even.

Some of the Cross lads could pass as Cavan or Louth men.

Risn's room is on the southern side of the house.

Hahaha 🤣

Quote from: ardchieftain on June 04, 2024, 04:35:24 PMTir na nOg in portadown and Eire Og in craigavon.

Two big towns for only one club.

North East of the country full of big towns that as a someone living in a 'border' county I would know very little about.

Larne
Newtownards
Bangor
Lisburn
Portadown
Craigavon
Ballymena

Just to name a few.

Are there GAA Clubs in Craigavon, and is there only the one in Portadown?

Mad that Bangor which is now official a city has no club.
#10
Mickey Harte has to walk now surely.

I said Armagh could win that game by 5 or 6 if they believed in themselves... They looked a proper side v Donegal.

Could have won by 20 yesterday.

That Derry team wouldn't win the Tailteann Cup.
#12
As bad as the Ulster Final loss was; it was the first time I've eatched that Armagh team and thought this is a proper side.

They outplayed Donegal that day for large parts but just couldn't fall over the line.

If they have belief this weekend they could really put a fragile Derry side to the the sword.

Quote from: imtommygunn on May 30, 2024, 03:38:10 PMDerry have lost their entire half back line. Murnin a big loss - I think Armagh have learnt how to cope without O'Neill more.

This game is becoming more of a toss up the closer it gets.
Armagh without O'Neill and Murnin will struggle.
Derry without their half back line will struggle as its the basis for a lot of our attacks.



Armagh could win this game by 5 or 6
