Emmet McMahon is right. A good player. Clare have some tidy forwards. Eoin Cleary played for UL a few years ago

TBH in a way the European Super league might have been better to happen- for everyone else at least. It would have shown up the big boys for what they are and could have turned sour eventually.

Domestic leagues would have continued as they are on a more level and sensible footing. If the other thing did go tits up would have been some craic to see them skulking home trying to get back in again.

Sure the Premier League is becoming the Super League. Look at the money Nottingham Forest spent when they got Promoted.  Celtic and Ranges couldn't even compete with teams at the bottom end of the Premier League for players.
Chelsea spent more in the January window then the rest of top 5 leagues combined.

The English clubs are getting so far ahead with the Sky money.and foreign owners.

Cavan / Re: Official Cavan GAA Thread

I'd say the high press approach is from James Burke.  That is how Mayo played under James Horan with Burke as coach. Oisin Brady playing really well. McVeety playing excellent. Some calls for McVeety to be played inside but with Oisin Brady playing well,Lynch returning not that necessary. Ryan O Neill also playing well inside.

Onto the games this weekend, some of the games look pretty clear cut going by the bookies.

Down massive favourites v Antrim 1/8
Cavan strong favourites v Tipp 1/5
WMeath away to Longford 4/7
Offaly home to Fermanagh 4/7

Down v Antrim: Hard to argue with routine win for Down
Cavan v Tipp: While Cavan have yet to fire upfront, should still have plenty for a Tipp team without their star player.
Longford v WMeath: Early days yet but huge pressure on both teams in this local derby after a very bad showing in R1. I'm finding it hard to call. Draw.
Offaly v Fermanagh: I've called out Offaly from the start to go well this year so I'll stick with them but this will be a huge test of their credentials. Fermanagh very impressive first day out. Always defensively tough and scored well against the tipped Slashers. Great opportunity for either team to top the table and for the gambler the Ernemen offer value. Draw at 15/2 also chancy in accumulator.

What's the main reason for backing Offaly to go up? They have a good manager in Kearns and won the All Ireland U20 title 2 years ago but they have lost some experienced players since last year. Niall McNamee and their captain Johnny Maloney.

They don't have any standout backs.

Juventus considering terminating Pogba's contract. Not impressed with his attitude. He has yet to make his debut since he rejoined. Injury prone.

A nothing story.  Playing for club as father and grandfather played for. Close thread.

When a connection to the Club it should be a more smoother transfer, but McCarrons club Currin have objected to the transfer.

It wouldn't want to drag on like Eamon Fennell switching to St Vincents.

Jack O'Connor has claimed Donegal had a point wrongly awarded to them during their 0-13 to 1-9 Allianz Football League first round victory over Kerry.

The Kingdom boss was seen remonstrating with referee Liam Devenney after the final whistle in Ballybofey over Caolan McColgan's contentious 30th minute point which appeared to curl wide in the wind at the last second and ultimately decided a tight contest.

"Donegal had a point there that was blatantly wide. Everyone in the stand - ye saw that did ye?" O'Connor is quoted as saying by BBC NI.

"It was a yard wide. Holy Jaysus but anyway it is what it is. You don't get many breaks when you're coming to away grounds like this. Just disappointing because I felt we deserved a point out of it at minimum."

The All-Ireland winning manager continued: "That shouldn't be happening. The linesman said it was wide yet he goes with the umpire. That's an incredible decision in a Division 1 game.

It did look wide to be fair. Jack was fair cranky anyway! I'd be more concerned with fellas kicking the ball wide from in front of goals myself. Donegal were much better team in second half aswell.

A late Kerry point from the left wing looked dodgy as well after it got caught in that wind.

Brendan Devenney on his podcast was adamant it was wide.

Ciaran Whelan mentioned that on the RTE podcast. O Connor was like a bull but Kerry got a point in first half that was wide

The centre back from last year retired Johnny Maloney. he was captain. Niall McNamee gone too.
Down would be more of threat then Offaly for promotion.

Offaly have good forwards but weak in defence. Westmeath put up a big score on them in Tailtean Cup semi
