I get the feeling that it's win or bust for Harrington. After winning 3 majors, second place finishes don't mean much to him. Other players would be happy with top ten finishes. The only way to explain when he blows up he really blows up

Cheers lads. Very gracious in defeat. We needed that one too. Hopefully it's the beginning of something that could progress into the senior set up
Just seen the goal which was a bit fortuitous after such a fantastic block. Ah well div two it is
Hate to admit it but think Tyrone are in for another stuffing today
The end of Castle Greyskull would be no bad thing
Can't believe the nonsense I'm reading on here. Wearing a gaa hoodie to Windsor park and it not being too bad. Good luck to anyone going to watch games there. It's only in very recent years that the IFA have tried to make Windsor more welcoming. I would have had more respect for them if they moved their ground to a different area. What respect does playing gstq show to baird, mcginn etc. Catch yerself on. U wouldn't have to scratch too far beneath the surface to find the Windsor of 30/40 years ago.
Physically I'm not sure if hoolahans up to it. Pushed off the ball very easily. I'd be fairly confident of getting a point in Poland, not so confident about beating the scots at home!
McGeady is frustrating but without his goals in Georgia we wouldn't even be competing in this group.   Brady was poor and I expected more from his dead balls but much better than ward. Fair play to James McClean. His challenge lifted the whole thing. Pity there weren't more like him. Not sure how hoolahan got motm as he seemed to give the ball away alot

If Tyrone win by a point it makes the scoring difference the same. Two point win and Tyrone are better off. Forget about the other game, two point win and we're save

By my reckoning, Tyrones scoring diff is -14, Kerrys -12. A 2 pt win would take Tyrone above Kerry. Problem arises if there are three teams in there on 6 points. Not sure what happens then. Not a very encouraging performance for the championship.

Santi claus got me 4 irish sporting books which I've just finished.
Brian O'Driscoll - not bad although you get the feeling he could have said alot more.
Jim Stynes - good read but focuses more on his cancer suffering than aussie rules career. What did I expect I suppose
Roy Keane - interesting reading about his Sunderland and Ipswich days.
Paul Galvin - excellent but would have liked some detail on the big games v Tyrone

Toure getting applauded off. Some footballer but a embarrassment tonight. The very least you expect from a professional is effort which he did not give. He wasn't alone either. They'll tank some team at the weekend and all will be forgotten. Joke

I think todays game was decided by the referees interpretation of the rules. While he was poor for both sides I don't think I've ever seen poc questioning a referee in such a way during the game.  It does no harm losing before the wc and if we can work on try scoring between now and then while keeping everything else as is we'll be doing ok. Proud of the effort today but it just wasn't to be

Just like man city the other week at home.  Very poor and with an extra man for about 90 mins. Joke.  Best about it, I'd be very surprised if psg were to win it.
Alot of sf bashing going on here. Seems that the shinners were chasing the dupers for weeks trying to find out the details. The dupers were trying to pull a fly one and push through their own proposals. Seems it would have been very easy for sf to let it go as they had already stood up to the dupers on this. Thankfully they didn't and here we are.
I'm no expert but this is how I see things
