Any Armagh posters. What's the story with Oisin O'Neill? Will both brothers be missing or are either likely to come back for championship. if rumours are true

dont think we will see Oisin this year. Dont know whats going on with Rian

Heard Rian was out injured then heard some other nonsense via social media channels  ::)

If ONeill doesnt play Sunday then we can have no complaints if we dont win

Would guess the whole backroom team is going with him.

Doesnt leave much time for a new team to come in with cship around the corner.

Or will Kavanagh step up now?

The show is well and truly over for wee Jeff and the lads.

He either toes the line or its direct rule.

The last kick of a dying party will want to cause carnage here

We are tripping over ourselves to make the other side favourites.  How typically GAA. :D

No way - we are deservedly favourites.

Mind you I envisage an absolute borefest given what I have seen of Armagh lately

Roscommon v Donegal - Roscommon
Tyrone v Armagh - Tyrone
Mayo v Monaghan - Mayo

Clare v Limerick - Clare
Dublin v Louth - Dublin
Kildare v Meath - Kildare
Cork v Derry - Draw

Tyrone are favourites - and deservedly so.

Forget about the last 5 or 6 years - we are slowly starting to look like a team again.

Armagh on the other hand have regressed completely from last year

It cannot be underestimated the difference Mattie Donnelly makes to that team. Simply immense this last few games. We need to either find another one for the next 10 years or regenerate him.


He brings a level of leadership and calmness than is sadly missing when he is not on the pitch.

Mayo - Another year another false dawn
Galway - Grinding out results - if they can get Comer & Walsh firing on all cylinders they will kick out. Great midfield
Kerry - No need to even think about peaking yet - currently just going through the motions
Rossies - Many teams in the league seemed to underestimate them - will be happy with the finish but do nothing as usual come cship
Armagh - Not a clue what McGeeney has done with this team. From all out attack to all out defence. Deserve to go down
Tyrone - Starting to come good and I still dont think we have clicked. Will be a test for any team in the round robins
Monaghan - Could have the great escape yet again - wont count come cship time unless McManus & Mcarron are 100%
Donegal - Shambles of a set up on and off the field

Accidental landlord as well.

Rent covers the mortgage and rates with 10 left over after the mortgage payments increased.

Tenants in for around 8 years - a family - no rent increases in that time and they look after all of the maintenance.

I have had conversations in the past with other people who have multiple houses and they reckon I am mad to not increase the rent. But if it isnt costing me money and I am getting no hassle whatsoever from the tenants I dont see they point for a couple of extra quid a month.

9 out of 10 times Ewan calls it as it is and upsets the applecart.

1 out of 10 times he has brain-fart moments that totally discredits all that good work.

There is some truth in what he says about Kildare Football, but his presentation is poor and comes across as bitter.

Strange take from a poster who is normally on point.

Its been a long long time since poor Ewan was correct 9 times out of 10.

Arlene not happy. That's a good sign  ;D

I don't know where unionism go from here.

Hard unionism has already created another couple of bogeymen in King Charles and the Irish News and the day isn't yet over! The lack of self awareness that Arlene Foster displays is bizarre. She's got her big titles but was the main instigator in leading Unionism down this path yet instead of staying in the background she has continued to put herself at the front and centre of any political debate. Definitely more loyal to the half crown than the crown that one, together with the other Westminster MP cronies.

To my eternal shame I first read that as something else  :-[

As did I - was going to say I never noticed them before  :-[

It's a good wee chat here and it's a difficult problem to resolve. My brother does a bit of coaching and he told me a few years ago they wanted to spilt his 2 teams evenly to give more game time instead of having a strong and weaker team. Both teams heavily beaten, kids keep score themselves so it didn't matter if it wasnt offical. It was a mixed bag as the players who rarely showed up or didn't have much interest were happy to get playing. The better players were literally crying as they had lost and really wanted to win.

No easy solution as all clubs do it differently. No point in one club doing it "right" by splitting the teams even only to come across a team who have a stronger and weaker side then they get hammered.

Like I said counting scores doesn't matter as the kids know themselves.

This in a nutshell.

Even without keeping scores, kids ask and ask and ask who won. When you reply that it was a draw they laugh at you and tell you the exact scoreline.

So while Go Games help in getting game time for kids it certainly doesnt change the competitive nature of the majority of kids
