I saw Eoin Donnelly do similar a couple of times for Fermanagh, and I was never quite sure if he was shooting or not either.  Personally for me, it either needs to contain individual flair/skill or be a fantastic team score.  A one off shot whilst often superb, is pretty common.  I can think of similar scores from my own club men over the years.  But when I look at some of the scores from Canavan, Clifford or Matt Connor, you don't see that replicated  much at all because of the level of skill, balance, poise, composure etc.  I'm sure there are others too.

*Please don't post that James McCartan point v Derry where he runs 40 steps like a little terrier, it's an amazing feat of tenacity but doesn't belong here!

Exactly! He puts the fist up in the air to signal what he is planning. Don't think it can be the best score ever if it wasn't even meant to be a score

Quote from: general_lee on November 06, 2023, 12:56:30 PMQuite compelling that there are relatives of holocaust survivors out protesting against Israeli genocide in solidarity with the Palestinians.

Not all (non Israeli) Jews  are pro-Israel. Miriam Margoyles has repeatedly called out Israel  numerous times for their treatment of Palestinians.  Maybe it takes non-Israeli Jews to think outside the box  instead of those in Israel who are  brainwashed  by their psychopathic overlords.

Israel's actions will only increase the animosity  towards ordinary Jews worldwide though. Even if they are pro-Palestine

Sadly, as a result of the Zionists that shout 'anti Semite' at every criticism of Israel, many people are conflating Jewish / Zionist

Quote from: imtommygunn on September 25, 2023, 10:35:52 AMThe womens seasons don't overlap either so they can do both.

They changed the AFLW season - clubs start pre-season training at the end of May.
The season starts the week the AFL has their pre-finals bye, first weekend of September with the grand final on 3 December this year, so some players may become available in early November if they don't make finals.

There were some great posters.

AZ Offaly
Muppet as well
Some morphed into other posters. Bummer had a new handle. Hardyarse got shortened.

Always wondered about AZ. Was a really good, prominent poster who just seemed to drop off.  I  often wondered was it self imposed or did something happen them.

AZ still looking down on us, afaik

I think the biggest shock from the Farrell red card was learning that it's his first red card for England
Don't understand the sneering here, but not surprised at the same time.

Was at the game last night. Ireland battled hard and ran their legs off but they were playing against a better team. Canada were way more composed on the ball, also they were a much bigger team.
Canada 7th in the world and reigning Olympic Champions, Australia 10th in the World and hosting the WC. For context Ireland are 22nd.

McCabe was already mentioned on here, but I thought O'Sullivan was even better. The two of them were everywhere, and a class above.
Ireland got a lucky goal early and played for territory as much as possible. It was clear the plan was to get the ball into the channels. They gave away a sloppy goal after 6 minutes of injury time and Canada worked a good goal 10 minutes after ht.
Ireland tired at times, as they had to spend much longer without the ball, and they lacked the composure of Canada when they did have the ball, so more running required.
Straight after the final whistle, McCabe made a bee line towards the ref to discuss something. Body language didn't seem aggressive. The ref was pointing to her watch, appeared to be suggesting that she stopped the clock for delays (a few cramps etc towards the end) but as McCabe walked away the ref seemed to reconsider and showed a yellow card.

The crowd was 90% Irish ex-pats, who hollered, cheered and sang to lift the players, but ultimately left the stadium dejected. The players came over to the stand to applaud the crowd afterwards, which was reciprocated.
Didn't hear any singing or chanting as we left the stadium. Team were dejected as were the fans.

Don't believe we have the players for a more expansive gameplan, and when we chased in the second half we got opened up more often and more easily, though Ireland were tiring, and Louise Quinn was sent up front for the last 10 or so

Clifford  could put up a big Tally Sunday as dubs fullback line is very loose. Wouldn't be surprised to see him score 2-6.

And yet Cluxton has not conceded a goal yet this championship (though EOD should have scored an open goal for Mayo).

Will be there next week to cheer them on against Canada. Hoping for a Giants stadium-esque 1-0

Unlucky with the penalty, listening to the Aussie commentary you would think it was stone wall.
Similar incidents happen every time the ball goes in the box, if the player goes down they can all be given.

Pity one of the chances at the end couldn't just have fallen nicely. Them's the breaks

When was the last 2 in a row ulster champion who didn't make an all Ireland final? Tyrone 94 95 got to the final and lost. Did Armagh or Donegal win 2 in a row and failed to push on as well in more recent times?

Donegal 2019, Tyrone 2017, Tyrone 2010, Armagh 04-06, Armagh 99-00
Have I misunderstood the question? There's more examples of this in recent years than actually reaching the final - Donegal 11/12 Tyrone 95/96
Also, not sure if it counts, but Tenet by Ludwig Goransson

Last of the Mohicans.

great shout. Can't remember much of the specifics, but the score is so moving in that movie.
Dances with wolves another one

So why would Kane move? At this stage of his career, CL football is only a lure if there's a strong chance of success. If all United can offer him is a chase for the top-4 trophy, he may as well stay at Spurs.

I'd be be pretty dubious that Spurs will be serious challengers for a top 4 spot this coming season.  They've fallen a long way back.

No doubt. But for 3/4s of a downtrodden season they were still tracking top 4, and this season they've no European distractions. We'll find out soon enough whether it was Conte's anti-football that got them into that position, or was sucking the life out of them.

I think you'll find it was Pochettino that was the outlier, not Conte.
Depending on how far back you want to go, Spurs have been top 4 twice in the last 5 years, 5/10, 7/15, 7/20. Poch's 5 seasons produced 4 of these 7 top 4 finishes, with only Conte and Harryx2 getting there
