May I once again recommend this to Seamus and the lads?

Hardy,

Initially I thought your posts were motivated by being one of them

However, I now realize that you are just another sheep.  You have become docile and unquestioning due to fluoridation of our drinking water.  Governments introduced this post World War 2 under instruction from the Illuminati. They tell you it's good for your teeth but they also fill those same teeth with poisonous mercury.

Yeah but Shane Long had a poor season last year. Which probably made things look worse.

70 goals in 92/93 - who would have got the bulk of those? Big Quinny, Townsend, Houghton, Keane, Irwin, Staunton, Sheridan, McGrath etc. that's a quare load of goals considering there was only one Irish striker. And Quinn was hardly prolific.

Had a look on statsbunker. Quinn was top With 9, then Keane 6, Irwin 5...soon you are Stan with 2, Ronnie Whelan with 1. There must gave been a fair old spread to get to 70.

Is it time to close this thread maybe??

If this thread gets closed it will just be further evidence of a clandestine neo-con, Zionist, new World Order secretly running the world.....and also moderating this forum.

This is very funny. I can't decide which bit is best but I'm going with "Travel documents used by Petrov are marked as ‘top secret’"

Weed and Hookers?

Surely top class spies would pick up women (with a connection to their adversary) at a high class casino?  They wouldn't be paying to get their end away.  Also their quartermaster would give the a briefcase of money to be buying coke, good coke too not the chopped to shit variety the rest of us put up with.

I watched a documentary on these theories and an apparent contradiction struck me.  A number of people were put forward as experts, with suitably grandiose titles.  I haven't the engineering, explosive or demolition knowledge to quibble with their theories.  However their focus was on Twin Towers and Pentagon.  When it came to Flight 93 though the conspiracy was that a fighter shot down the plane to stop it attacking Washington.

So is it that on the same day that the US/Zionists/whoever planned a false flag attack on two targets that another high-jacking occurred?  Was it another false flag operation that was in turn double-crossed?  Were the hijackers, speaking Arabic bona-fide terrorists?  Had they been turned?  Were they actors? 

All the calls from the plane were they faked? 

No mention was made of the accused hijackers either.  Did they exist?  Were working for US/Zionists?

As a layman I can't argue against either side when it comes to Thermite, building collapsing etc.. but what my instinct tells me is that if you are going for a false flag operation of such as sensitive nature you wouldn't go with 4 planes and targets.  It's too many moving parts. 

To get a number of people with a past history of Islamic activism to cooperate seems beyond possibility.   To get enough of people in on the act to pretend they were there is beyond possibility.  To fake that many identities and backstories is beyond possibility.

I think to create a conspiracy around this you would have to at least concede that these fcukers set out to do what they did of their own accord but that someone somewhere chose to turn a blind eye because they thought it would trigger a reaction....even that is pretty dubious.

I have heard various theories about each of the attacks but never something that fitted all together.

Where do we go from here?

We await instructions from The Hatch. The good gentlemen there will decide shortly.

Hurling Discussion / Re: Hurling championship 2018

Limerick will think they are better than Clare and they should have beaten them so why can't we?

Limerick played and lost to Clare  in this year's championship.  Limerick played and lost to Clare in last year's championship.  All I can think is that Brendan is going on a League game that Clare had won and then took eye off the ball and Limerick won on a free taking competition.

I doubt John Kiely is as daft as Brendan. He will know that O'Donoghue will look at Clare Limerick game in Ennis and probably when give one of Clare management a call.

They will discuss that when Clare shutdown Flanagan, Dowling up front (Gillane didn't play) and Hayes and Lynch in midfield then Limerick got badly stuck because their open game was shut down.

They lost discipline and also full back line could not contain Conlon (substitute Glynn for Conlon?) . Management had bad day by going sweeper to try and block Conlon but they left Jamie Shanahan freedom of the park. For a finish Clare had 7 forwards on field completely pushed up on a 14 man Limerick.

Galway will not play the nice open hurling of Cork.  They will have more than the 60mins of graft that Kilkenny had.  They beat Clare which Limerick couldn't do.

Limerick might win, especially if they get on top in middle third but Brenny gives no explanation of how they will do that.

Hurling Discussion / Re: Hurling championship 2018

There is none. If you're fouled and the refs plays advantage I'm not aware of any caveat that allows the fouled player to foul himself without punishment.

You're 100% correct. However, if the refs started calling this by the letter of the law there could be unintended consequences of increased pulling and dragging. Why would you not foul a lad going through on goal, and there is no black card! One of the reasons the big hurling games have been so exciting has been refs letting so much go. I can understand how that can be frustrating in equal measure. Mannion was fouled blatantly 3 times in 30 seconds at the end of the first half and the ref just let it run.

In a practical sense the steps one if policed that way would give no advantage in a lot of cases. 

Take a scenario where a player is dragged on his third or fourth step.  The ref gives advantage to the now off-balance player and he corrects his run.  Immediately a free for over-carrying.  Regardless of rule, it appears to the games I am watching the ref is either:

1) Giving a couple of steps grace
2) Counting from advantage on
3) Just going with the flow

I know many will say it is number 3!

I can't claim to be well versed in the particular rules but that was the explanation given on Sunday Game for Ger Aylward goal standing.

I haven't watched Shane's goal back yet to count steps so don't know how many he actually took.  I would maintain though that he was trying to play the ball fair.  Calling it back would be a reward to those dragging out of him.

You can't overcarry on advantage.

They reset the step count at point advantage is given.  In a practical sense, how a ref can watch and decide on all those factors I have no idea.

But on balance I think O'Donell's goal was fair to stand.  Calling it back to give him a free would be rewarding Galway for dragging him back.

Clare had 19 wides to 13 for Galway. That statistic shows the difference between the teams. However something I would look at is why Podge Collins was given 63 minutes to score one point while Shanagher was given only the remainder of the game to make an impact. Shanagher at this point in time looks a much more effective scoring forward. I don't really see what Podge offers to be honest.
I'd rate Aaron Cunningham higher than him too - he's in the US at the moment though.

Podge has been living off past glories for a long time. Everything seemed to come together for him in '13 but he's been a shadow of that ever since.

Tony Kelly has too to a lesser extent. Kelly had a bit of a nightmare today. He wasted two balls in the last minute of injury time alone. Instead of calmly working through the field as Clare did for their equaliser at the end of the first game, Kelly just launched it and it went wide. He's a phenomenal player at his best but he's far too inconsistent and Clare don't seem to know how to get the best from him.

Shanagher is only back from a cruciate injury, probably ahead of schedule so if he gets a good winter into his legs and with the likes of Cunningham and Oisin O'Brien to add to the mix then Clare will be no push overs either.

Collins and McGrath seem to have lost their mojo and are hurling at too slow of a pace to compete. Size doesn't seem to bother Shane O'Donnell too much and brushed off Hanbury again yesterday with in close proximity.

Clare still lacking someone in midfield IMO. Kelly needs a horse of a man in beside him if he's playing midfield to do the spade work which Kelly isn't keen on.

Remembering Limerick were third in Munster yet are 70 minutes away from an AI. Still think Galway if they can freshen up and recover will in the next two weeks will have the mark off them. Limerick still a bit green on it at this level.

Shanagher just back from cruciate and playing him at all was high risk.  He got the goal the previous week but did struggle a bit rest of time.  He needs to work on striking off his left.  Being one sided was okay underage because of his sheer size and power.  Skehill left his whole goal open by committing to block, Shanagher should have tipped ball to other side.  He was still desperately unlucky.  Also Shane O'Donnell thought it was gone in and jumped to celebrate, missing his chance of rebound.  That's the breaks though as if it went in I think they would have won pulling up.   Shanagher will be a huge player for Clare going forward.

I was at the game and Podge had a great game is some ways.  His tackling, pressure and link play kept Clare in it during first half.   Score return I agree with.  McGrath since injury has lost pace and confidence.   Time is against him to get it back.  It's a shame that his best days were spent scrabbling around midfield rucks to suit Davy's systems and one man forward lines.   The way Clare play now would really suit McGrath's game.

Midfield, I agree.  For all the bleating about Malone, his presence was missed Sunday, he made a difference when he came on.

Limerick did well against Cork, twice but both games were very open.  Galway will be a lot tighter.  When Limerick met tight marking against Clare in Ennis, they didn't like it.  I hope they can play their game against Galway but they will find it hard I suspect.   Aches and pains should disappear for an All-Ireland final so I don't think that will hold Galway back.

On subject of injuries, Clare team wasn't named until just before throw-in because John Conlon had a bad ankle injury.  After all the talk about Dáithí Burke marking him, Conlon was touch and go.  Only played after injection.

This one will sting Clare players as they had Galway on the rack but couldn't hit that killer blow.  It was similar to Tipp game before Galvin goaled.  An almost psychological fear of going ahead of  a punch-drunk opponent.  That said the Clare team that lost Sunday are streets ahead of 2016 Davy vintage that limped out to Galway in quarter-finals.  So longer term when pain eases, if they can find that extra little bit they will continue to be in the teams coming on of Munster round-robin and will compete well in All-Ireland series.

Dublin selection will be interesting.

If Gavin rests players then would be the a second string anxious to prove a point give Roscommon a harder time of it?

It's hard to guess the Roscommon mindset. They have nothing to lose but I don't know could you say they were inhibited in the last games so does that change much?

It will certainly be an anti-climactic end to their season.
