The HURLING MEN who suddenly care about Westmeath hurlers...They are talking about Westmeath hurlers on an RTÉ show that has never in my memory put them on telly live.

GPA original Donal Og is now on board for a games promotion argument in spite of the fact that players at all levels are keen on a split season.

Can anyone confirm when the Dub hurling championship is starting as I see lads on Twitter contradicting the Sept statement?

Now games promotion is the big worry even though most GAA players can't talk to media during the season bar crappy press nights. Like we lose so many youngsters every year to simply giving up and we are worried about the Premier League and Munster Rugby?!

Let's be honest the fun is only starting now!

Dublin Senior Hurling Championship starts on July 20

Dublin Senior Football Championship starts on August 6
How many Dublin county footballers play hurling for their clubs? Would the clubs be up in arms should the Dublin team reach the All-Ireland final?

Cuala certainly would.

Des Cahill would turn grey if they couldn't play games without Con.

Attended a well contested Mac Namee cup final (yes it is a hurling game.

CPB proved winners over St Pats Maghera and was surprised to see an Antrim referee in the middle.

Is that the way it neutrality in hurling....

Yes I had a grandson playing for St Pats....

Both schools have to agree on the ref for the likes of those competitions, was it a Belfast ref?

A good few Down refs live in Belfast, just saying like.

Is this the 2nd tier or 3rd tier competition in Europe?

I mind throwing the ball up to take a poc out at the top end and the wind blowing it out for a 70. Between there and Feystown it was crazy!

I always liked Cushendun, Feystown was a different story, getting changed in the whin bushes before and after the match!!
Feystown not having changing rooms back then?

Who plays out of Feystown? Not sure if I've ever played there.

The only team I really mind not having changing rooms were Mitchells where you took your car onto the grass bank at the side of the pitch and changed there then got out and there was someone from the surrounding estate shooting a BB gun at you  ;D

Never play at the Falls park? no changing rooms our parking... better now, you've your warm up done before you get to the pitch from the changing rooms at the Whiterock centre

Played once there against the Gorts for our seconds when I think there was no reserve league so we ended up in a South Antrim league.

No sidelines marked out and some wee spide scooting across the pitch on a mini scrambler thing.

The game itself was a tad "hectic", plenty of pulling but not on the ball  ;D

Thiago is in training this afternoon. Very very good news.

Huge bonus if he's fit for Sat, the betting is right with Liverpool at evens, but 4/7 to lift the cup is the better option

A fully fit Liverpool first team win this hands down.

What are the bookies offering?

This Sue Gray report on partygate. I am still waiting on the hookers and cocaine being rolled out because I wouldn't be surprised.

Waiting or hoping 😉😉

Well evidently loads of wine, beer, spirits on a table with nibbles isn't a party, it's a work event so you must need something else for that to become a party..

Cocaine and ladies/boys of the night must be the tipping point.

Long overdue.

cash in on Pickford and Richarlison

Who'd buy the England No1, Newcastle are all I can think of.

Most other top teams have a better keeper.

I remember United hampered by the foreigner rule but I also remember that Juventus team of the mid 90's as being a level above.  Things obviously changed pretty quickly after that with the foreigner rule change and the movement of the best players to the Premier League instead of Serie A.  Bergkamp was a big signing but he was a flop in Italy.  I would say the biggest statement was Ravanelli landing in his prime.

for me it was Ruud Gullit, he was one of the top footballers in the world when he went to Chelsea.

Ravanelli was bought by Middlesbrough, my how things were different back then!

Is any camogie people on this board? Is there a reason why there are so few camogie games played in the county, there doesn't seem to be much underage being played?

Disaster for our U16's and U14's the last few years. We stopped entering U18's as it was a waste of time. Barring Clonduff no one would play them.

Teams pulling out, not travelling is a pain in the arse. I think our U16 camogs had 4 league games last year and two championship games, u14's got slightly more but not much. Clonduff coming strong at those agegroups which is good to see as.

Our U14's camogs will have their third game of the year tonight if Bredagh turn up and that's not a given, U16 girls have had one. Thankfully the older U16's can play adult to offset that a bit.

U15 hurlers are probably into double figures at this stage.

In saying that at Go games blitzes the pitches are full of teams as it's 7/9 aside, just seems to fall apart when girls hit the teen years.

I'm not sure if Coleman will stay on. I hope he does but he doesn't have much left in him.

The whole central defense should be cleared. Only until the last half  dozen games there I wouldn't have been sold on Pickford.

Ali is a waste of time and money. An unspoken thing here but a major factor in the games we did well in was Delph being fit. How do you keep him fit though?

Rondon would barely make it in the LOI. Allan and Doucoure had good moments but they flattered to deceive a bit. However they are worth keeping.

I would still get rid of Iwobi but you'd never get the money back.

I like Branthwaite, tall, pacy, but a lot to learn, Godfrey I like but due the odd moment of madness, another centre half required, Tarkowski on a free maybe.

Striker wise, good ones are thin on the ground and if DCL does go to Newcastle then whatever money is raised in DCL and Richarlison needs to go on them.

Would love Bissuma of Brighton in midfield but why would he come to Everton.

Everton rebuild.

Who stays and who goes?

DCL Stays until someone offers north of £50M, can't see it happening.
Richarlison   Gone but we need big mullah for him, £50M plus for him also. He did his bit in keeping the team up
Gomez        Gone
Allan           I'd keep
Doucure      Keep
Gray           Stays
Deli Ali        Probably stays but not up in the air about him
Holgate       Gone
Mina           Gone   Too injury prone but a leader on the field when fit, master shíthouser
Coleman     Stays but as backup to Nathan Patterson
Iwobi          In December I'd have said get shot of him ASAP, but he turned things around, he gets another go
Davis          Gets to christmas
Rondon       Goes
Keane         a bit meh, he goes.

Doesn't reflect well on the Tory party who continue to support a lying, lawbreaking leader. They're worse than the Met.

I think Johnson will ride this one out along with the Gray report.

The client media are already spinning that's shes going to do a political hatchet job on him and even the wiping they got in the council elections wasn't as bad as anticipated as Labour failed to get the vote out in the North of England.

The Torys don't give a fúck for the cost of living or anything like that, yet play the immigrant card every once in a while and that'll suffice to keep the base happy.

If we weren't tied to these charlatans I wouldn't give a shiny shíte for them, but sadly we are.

McGhee is still the best keeper in the county and his young fella is going to be a class act also

Ex Dunloy McGhee?
