Quote from: bogball88 on Today at 09:55:02 AMHow is the ticket hunt going in Armagh?

The knives are out

Moon landings for me too.

JFK shooting. I dont know what the full story is but I dont think the full truth has been revealed.

Ah I think you have to have Galway as favourites. In at least 2 of our last 3 meetings they had long periods of looking the better side.  Long periods of getting easy scores and looking comfortable.  That said though, there is a frailty with them and they can really get the jitters.

If they've cleared up the niggles for the main men then they will really fancy their chances.

I know they haven't conceded many goals this year, similar to Armagh.  I really think either team rattling the net will have a major impact on this game.

Quote from: RedHand88 on July 17, 2024, 02:49:28 PMThis is absolute madness. Ridiculous policy. You'd think the likes of Crossmaglen, Tir na og etc are going to be completely screwed.
Tbf each club contributes the same amount to the county coffers
I am from a bigger club but can understand why it's done like this .

I wonder if cross , peters , clan √Čireann , killeavy who have two teams in the league run as two separate teams get 480 ?

How would it work with hurling clubs would they get 240 as well? Some of those are dual clubs

Dual clubs will get both, single clubs shouldn't get any for the code they don't play in
think single hurling clubs got 70

After the slagging the hurling ones give the game of football te.  Surely they'll all be handed back  ;D

Utd getting some business done early. I dont know much about Yoro but it looks like Utd have overpaid for a lad with 1 year left on his deal, to fend off the sniffing Madrid. Utd do like to overpay though... time will tell on that one. It does look like the overhaul is underway.

Very hard to predict the league this year isnt it. Obviously City will be in the top 2 (barring all the charges actually sticking).  Liverpool - new manager, hard to know how that will go. Arsenal - need striker to give top spot a good rattle IMO. Villa - lost Luiz, and will need to strengthen in certain areas to play CL and PL football. Will Chelsea be as much of a shambles again.  Will Utd be as much of a shambles again.  Will spurs continue to be spursy.

Are they going to survive?

Looking dodgy. Administration looms large.

Horizon. An American Saga part 1. As the title suggests, it's long. I felt that the time went in well though as it flitted between the different storylines. I quite enjoyed it, but herself not so much.

I was annoyed by the preview of the next one that runs at the end of part 1. I'd always prefer to not have anything spoiled and try to avoid stuff like that.

A few fans already on to voice discontent at the visit to the White House and genocide Joe yesterday.

Quote from: clarshack on July 17, 2024, 03:17:45 PM3 episodes into Shogun and this show is over rated.

60% through the book and struggling. It's far too drawn out.

Blitzed through The Bear over the past 2 weeks. Great show. Well performed, with highs and lows. Looking forward to more.

Quote from: samuel maguire on July 17, 2024, 10:47:45 AMWorst case scenario double up at the turnstile... 2 in under 1 ticket

I mind the Hill in 03. Jammed in like sardines. Wasn't even room in the aisles. A certain amount of skullduggery defo went on at the turnstiles that day.

It's gonna be a disaster and there will be plenty of resentment, of that there is no doubt.

If you are a diehard county supporter and not really a club person, then the season ticket was a no brainer. If you went to all the games and didn't have a season ticket then more fool you.

I dislike this, Oh all of the 7k at the first match should get, or the 6k who went to sligo should get. What if one of those is the only match a person went to, or people couldnt get to that one but went to the rest. It's a nonsense really.

There should be a hierarchy within the clubs who will be sorted 1st and any club person who disagrees with that never pulls their finger out to help around the place.

Quote from: lurganblue on July 16, 2024, 09:45:45 AMThe Bikeriders probably wasnt as good as I was hoping but I still enjoyed it. About a 5/6 out of ten. Jodie Comer steals the show with an excellent performance IMO.
Sounds like a waste of a good cast.

Yeah slightly. The cast are good, as you would expect.  Storyline perhaps lacking a little.
