Quote from: clarshack on March 02, 2024, 08:44:29 PMThe Dublin defeat that really spooked Harte was the 2011 1/4 Final defeat. The Dubs kicked 0-22 and it could have been a lot more that day.
Since that match Dublin have won 9 all Irelands in 12 years. It is obscene.
The previous number of years needed for Dublin to collect nine all Irelands was 72 years, from 1923 to 1995

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on March 02, 2024, 08:17:53 PMReading too much into it. Derry played a weaken team, not to worried about it, though Tyrone posters seem more worried about Ole Mickey. Derry strength in depth is not great but we already know this. Derry carrying too many small men in their squad. Doherty,Toner,McGuckian, Murphy, Small men need to be exceptional. Dublin have very few small men.Derry need to add panel men with a bit of size.
Mickey wants to win everything but Derry can't produce ready to go footballers as fast as Dublin can. Nobody can. Bleedin' coolchies. Derry will most likely get either injuries or fatigue. Even if they don't it won't matter.  Dublin have at least one replacement team available. The journalists love asking questions as if it's sport and it's all subjective and different every time  but the whole thing is a joke. The All Ireland  is dead and it's only March.

Playing Dublin if you have a good team is a mathematical formula.

It's x<x+1
Dublin will always win , ideally via a one point hammering
It's the same formula that Mayo came up against so often.

Pour encourager les autres.
Gaza could lose Biden the election. It is already damaging Starmer.

There is a feature article in the Irish Times today marking the 20th anniversary of the death of Cormac McAnallen

Seven changes to their starting 15.
Very tactical. They don't want a proper match against the Dubs this early in the season
I just heard on Radio 1 from Martin McHugh that Derry have several injuries including the goalie. Just fancy that.

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on March 01, 2024, 08:40:45 PMThere's nothing efficient about ground hurling over striking ball from hand or distributing the ball for a pass.

Hurling is a possession game now, controlling the ball allows the team with most possession more chances to win...

At club games you'll still get the Hail Marys coming outta defence but as a forward you'd much prefer a short puc out the wing in space.

Ruck's development would be hard to figure out in terms of changing the dynamic of the game.
Hurling never stays still. 20 years ago there was the running game of Cork. then Kilkenny introuced stickwork and intensity, Galway and Tipp followed up with the use of space. Limerick brought possession  Something else will replace that .
Brian Kerr has been added to the interim  management team

A lovely tribute to a great Gael.
The antisemitic card is knackered. Israel is as bad as Cromwell.

Quote from: seafoid on February 29, 2024, 03:18:18 PMGenocidal regimes don't tend to have a long shelf life in the modern era. The Khmer Rouge, Interahamwe and Nazi Party were all removed from power.

Unless some prominent nation has the balls to call out the Israeli Government / IDF for the shower of absolute tramps they are hard to see things changing soon.  Everyday goes by Netanyahu makes Putin look like Mother Teresa.
Israel is deteriorating on a daily basis. Biden thinks he can support Israel and get reelected. Let's just say that is a long time to November.

Keir Starmer has welded the UK Labour party to genocidal Israel.
