Seems very pro England this half.  Didn't call out sakas dive or some of the England holding

Thought the same myself.  A little dig at Tyrone management without actually coming out and saying it.

Looks like he was Jamaica manager and they've only just been knocked out of the copa america.

Think I will reserve judgement on this one and trust they know what they're doing.  Never heard of him.

I would say mcgeeney tactically is not at the level to take armagh to the next level.  He'll do so much but when the game is in the melting pot I wouldn't be backing him.  So many penalty shoot out defeats is not bad luck, it's poor decision making on the line, in games they should have won.  Different if they're losing penalty shoot outs to dublin or kerry

Fair play to Spain knocking out the hosts in their own back yard.  Don't think there was much between the sides and penalties probably would have been a fair result.  Spain definitely the better team in the first half, Germans in the second

No sign of an improvement either.  Definitely something in that SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

I'm in shock.  It's actually entertaining.  If the Dutch don't get a  second though they'll kick themselves as can see Romania equalising

I agree.  Another turgid match.  I find  sport is becoming more and more of a turn off because of the lack of physical contact and the constant diving

Quote from: An Watcher on June 30, 2024, 08:30:22 PMNo disrespect to Derry but I'm glad they're out.  It would have made a mockery of the competition that a team beat 3 times could go on and win it. 

They didn't lose 3 times in this competition, they lost twice
! The amount of times I've read this sh1te, it would make your eyes melt.
Lost in Ulster, out of Ulster. Into the group stages of Sam based on the league (different competition) . You finish third blah blah.... . By your same train of thought, was winning the Sam via the back door a mockery? Absolutely not as you're playing within the competitions structures

Hard lines to the players and management today, just wasn't our day. Was only going to be a kick of a ball in it. McKaigue played Clifford very well.

Will be interesting to see what / if there's any changes re management for next year

Brilliant! 🤣😅 have now lost 4 championship games this season.

Jesus, I'm delighted.  Always thought Tyrone lost once on their way to winning Sam in 05 and 08.  I am now content we went through unbeaten in those years as we were in a different competition

Don't know why anyone watches BBC or ITV coverage over RTE.  Not saying RTE is brilliant but you don't have to listen to half the drivel
