3.11 to 0.08.Another tanking for Mayo at minor level.Eoin Murphy running the show for Galway

When this current Senior team split, we're fucked.

You would think some of the rocket scientists involved might have got a small inkling of this over past five or six years.
Cannot really comment about this year, but as I have mentioned before, it is scary how little forward talent has been coached/harnessed/developed over past five to seven years from minor ranks to become potential senior forwards.
Meanwhile Galway and Kerry are developing forwards for fun.
Please don't use the tradition excuse.
This problem begins at u14 -u16.

Mayo's All Stars last year were all defenders. It so obvious that forwards are in short supply. Another 2/3 points on Mayo performance in finals would have them winning two All Irelands in the last few years.

Forest in real danger of being relegated to the 3rd tier.
Mad to think that a club that has more European Cups than Arsenal,Chelsea and Man City combined could be playing in Division 3...
Arry will pull it off for the Brummies.  Bristol players will be busy this week packing sun tan lotion
Very tense finish to the season at the bottom of the Championship. I think Forest probably have the edge over Birmingham and Blackburn as they're at home whilst both of the others have tough enough games at Bristol and Brentford..
Squeaky bum time for three clubs who would fancy themselves to be at least fighting for the chance to get into the top tier.

Thankfully there are no shyster solicitors, crooked auctioneers, Del boy type motor dealers and general useless tradesmen and builders in the private sector waiting to rip off their customers.

Not the same thing. What you describe is deliberate malificence but it takes brains for that kind of stuff. The public sector and everyone working in it is a money wasting tit. The majority of them haven't the brains to line their own pockets but prefer to piss away someone else's money.

They knew enough to organise your remedial learning class even though that was obviously a waste of money

Very sorry to hear that news. A great Ross man.

Pat Shortt is great being interviewed, just being himself he's really funny. His comedy, so so. Dunbelievables I thought was awful, seen a bit of Matty which was quite good.

A great man for laughing at his own jokes is Pat

McQuillan really hates Armagh.

Does he? I always thought he was a Bollix but that changes my opinion. He can't be too bad so

The BBC  have decided to edit Tommy's joke out of the replay of the show.  They've also edited out his reference to Bloody Sunday - someone must have thought that was tasteless too Eben though he wasn't making a joke.

I'm not keen on Tiernan's 'shock' humour. But then there are comedians that I think are hilarious and others just don't get it.

I would agree. i think he's a bit of a tool. There are loads of funny southern comics though. As for the ones in the north not so many...
Obviously you haven't watched the Shinner with the Dunnet Stores suit trying to play the responsible politician act so

Is it just me,or do people generally find,with the exception of Pat Shortt,Freestate comedians (and I use that term losely) to be lewd,obnoxious and generally not funny?

They can't all have the talent of May McFetteridge

Of course we have the usual Sinn Fein turnaround when they see how the wind is blowing. Their representative on the hospital board Macdonnacha who voted in favour now wants the decision reconsidered. Such hypocrisy

McGeeney is a bully and is used to getting his own way through bullying tactics. Fair play to McQuillan for standing up to his intimidatory nature. Can no Armagh people see the balls hes making of this job with no one to blame but himself.

Living off a one time winner medal.

James Pearce saying Liverpool are willing to break their transfer record for Van Dijk.
Lallana in with a shout for Watford game which is good news.
The real good news is that another season has gone by without Liverpool winning the league.
Time to wheel Lawro, Hansen etc off the telly. Its getting embarassing having to explain to people who they are and why anyone should listen to them

Surely Klopp can't fail to get top 4 with the easy run-in Liverpool have?  He'd be hard pressed to mess it up.

you show such faith in Klopp yet think he is a bad manager, how many bad managers make the top four in England?

Catch yourself on.

Moyes for one.


Moyes is not a bad manager, he was simply in over his head and was too loyal to his Everton coaches, thats what did him in.

I disagree. I think Moyes is a poor manager.
Looking at Moyes' performance since leaving United you would wonder why Ferguson was so infavour of him

Seems like the tribes cannot even agree themselves internally on candidates and which constituencies to step aside from etc.Another example of the utterly failed philosophies of unionism and nationalism and the splits therein.

Its as bad across the water. The pro Brexit Tories will win lots of seats even though there will be a majority voting against them in many constituencies
