I wonder will Malachy O’Rourke hang around for another year?

Subs bench starting to look thin with Meyler and McCarron out and Rory Brennan having to start. Mc Nulty back in the 26 which will be a boost for him I suppose. Be shit to be in a county panel and not get to tog on match day.

Just listened to Wooly’s podcast there saying Myler would be picking up Karl O’Connell  ::)
Read the board Wolly!

As a matter of interest what did Damian Comer do to deserve a second yellow ?

Excessive diving

I’m gonna miss the aul  bluffer , his podcast is good, not a great podcast, but a good podcast  ;D

What I have found interesting about Eamo is the conversion he has made from late 90’s early 00’s Sunday Indo journo/ Establishment lackey to now where he is firmly and trenchantly anti establishment and fully left of centre.

this whole thing is like watching two dwarfs fight - entertaining for the first 10 seconds then ye just feel sorry for them trying to get attention - just two irrelevant average ex county men looking to be heard - in a committee of some description in clerkins case ( Jarleth "scor" Burns Jr) and in Parkinsons case, and their laddish clickbait blog gives the loudest mouth a soapbox - unfortunately this seems to be the norm - Cavanagh, Brendan Deveney, Billy Joe Padden, Dessie Dolan, Gooch, David "as the man says" Brady - are all bland, irrelevant cliche ridden doses #rantover

Senan 'that's quality' Connell would be in there too. 

100% - I sometimes get the impression the Senan is trying to model his delivery and general TV persona on Jamie Redknapp, a dreadful though I know.

On a seperate note , I wonder do Senan, David , Dick and all the rest of the lads look at who is retiring every year and wonder if the new retiree is going to get a slice of his cake so to speak?

The talking head retired ex county man market had , I Thought, reached saturation point about 18 months ago and (thankfully ) natural attrition wasn’t keeping up with the numbers joining the ranks , it would be a interesting study to see the % of ex county men that never go near the media scene and then the % of others like Dick & Wolly who willingly prostitute themselves for a few coppers.
In Woolys case it’s a living , fair enough.
The Dick fella works away as a production manager or something along them lines and I’m reckoning the media thing is a vanity project or a means to an end - propbably told by his FF handlers to keep tapping away at the Aus TV there Dick & we’ll parachute you in as a Dail candidate in a few years , good lad .
Another appalling thought , Dick Clerkin T.D.

Clerkin doing well for a lad who was kjiwb to tout his own all Ireland final tickets a few years ago

Obviously a key moment in the Fianna Fáil candidate recruitment teams decision that Dick was the man for them in Monaghan .
A true demonstration of the embodiment of some key Fianna Fáil core principals right there.

Yet so many take the time  to  submit their protest, Is that called being "threadbaited"?
Some even surmising what must be Dick's ambitions in life.
'I heard the rumour that's doing the rounds from a source and if true then it sums up the man altogether´..... :D
'Based on a rumour, the man's a gobshíte'  ...  I think I heard that line on Father Ted.
The Ireland of the squinting windows lives on.

So we have one person in Camp Dick.
Anyone else ????

Wolly survives on the click bait - he works for whose entire purpose is ‘content ‘ creation , I do like his podcast but is lowest common denominator stuff really
Dick is firmly angling for an establishment role either in Gaa circles , media circles or if you believe some rumours flying round once upon a time a tilt at Leinster house as a FF candidate- this to me speaks volumes about Dick.
Dick throws out his musings on Twitter and rarely if ever engages with any normal people apart from the sad sacks that agree with him but if a media type reply’s Dick will engage at length, very transparent by Dicky
Wolly does engage with people and does act a bit of a p***k at times but at least he engages with all comers
I think secretly Dick might just envy Colm’s blue verified tick !!

A very tight tactical game, Monaghan, after a poor 3rd quarter finished the stronger when it really mattered and edged  the game

Kildare, very good in some parts,  perhaps it's the bias talking but I thought Monaghan were the  better all round outfit.

Agree Dinny but he was poor for both, thought his linesmen could have helped him more , once in each half Kildare handled ball in the ground and he let it go .

Thought Kearns had his best game yet for Monaghan, it took balls to go for his 2nd point when the game was in the mixer
Was back at the end with a crucial turnover
Too many wides though
Kerry in Clones will be balls to the wall stuff

All sorts of rumours flying around about two elected DUP reps who allegedly have sort injunctions about alleged activities that allegedly would undermine, again, the party's claim to uphold traditional family values. Allegedly.

I notice that Little Pengelly has pulled the pin on Twitter
Entirely unrelated I’m sure

Schkite, I wouldn’t even respond to that tool.
Its entire output on this board is anti Monaghan trolling and amateur level trolling at that, as far from Fearonesqe ,at times , subtle trolling ,as u can get.

Infantile , unsophisticated and obsessive.

I have a theory that he/she had their eye wiped at a Gaeltacht disco as a teenager by a much better looking , witty and charming Monaghan person and has privately seethed and wallowed in a hatred of all things Monaghan ever since.
Tapping away at a keyboard in some hell hole like Greenhills or Ballyroan cursing their luck at not been cuter and more alert to the Monaghan threat at that Rosmuc disco in 1994.
Get help Bro, life’s too short man.

Viva Muìneachain !!!

Just had a wee look at the Laois page and is it not a bit parochial to be chatting away over there and not try and discuss the game here  :D

Kieran “Jap”Finlay , R.I.P., father of Paul , recently retired Monaghan left footed supremo
Hugo Clerkin, father of recently retired Monaghan midfielder & GAA high command propagandist in chief Dick
Eugene Hughes , more widely known by his nom de guerre Nudie, no sons playing recently but did have a son that played a bit of ball for Monaghan in the last 8-10 years but never hit the heights of his father.

Fuzzman- another move to consider if you want to go from BKK to Chaing Mai is the train, might eat up a lot of your time if you only have 12 days but you get to see much more than you would on the flight
Get a sleeper compartment, it’s an overnight train and there is a bar on it so you can have a bit of a rip in the process too! It’s good crack
Flights are cheap though and it’s 1.5 hours so it will save you lots of time and make the most of your 12 days
Chaing Mai has everything from Thai cookery courses, hiking trips, motorcycle safaris, downhill biking trips if you are feeling lazy , night market, day market - there is no shortage of stuff to do
Accomodation in Chaing Mai is good for every budget
Stay anywhere within 500 metres of Tai Pai gate ( I think that’s the spelling is wrong but you will figure it out)

Flight wise , like Heffo says unless you are on a frequent flyer programme you won’t get no upgrades
Have a great time , you will have a ball !!
