I think I'd rather  be stuck in the Clones traffic  than suffer that

What were TSG  playing at with the Mayo Roscommon highlights?

I didn't  watch the match  live , so didn't know who won,  and  wanted to find out  later instead.

THose "highlights", I actually thought were  from a previous year!  They didn't even give the  final score, just  a couple of scores and a few  interviews.  Awful stuff.

Quote from: Itchy on April 21, 2024, 09:51:56 PMWell just home and haven't watched anything back on TV yet. I thought in extra time we had a free or two we should've got but didn't but the overcarrying by o rourke was correct call. Wasn't his fault though as he was isolated and got no help. From a Cavan perspective we have to look at how we set up in 1st half, playing that cagey shite that Tyrone love. Gave them an 8 point lead and then started to play. We need to go for it from the start. A proud effort from the lads that just came up short

Very disappointed that Coldrick on I think 3 occasions did not follow the rules and ask "injured" Tyrone players to go to the line. No excuse for that.

Crazy that Tyrone are expected to play donegal in 7 days.

Yep. The calendar is deliberately screwed.

The league finals are  Being devalued, the provincial championship is being devalued (more than it was before ) . The only thing  left    to do is bring a  provincial final to Paris , Texas or Madagascar. Then  they can really pull the plug.

Quote from: tyrone08 on April 21, 2024, 06:21:07 PMHow the hell is it a free out when 3 players are kneeing on you. Goldrick is a complete balloon
I'd go get your eyesight checked if I were you. The ref won it for you

He gave Cavan more time than they should have got at the end for them to try and get an equaliser.
He didn't even play enough time to cover the wasting at the last Morgan free lad...

From  when the free  was awarded to Morgan kicking  it  was roughly a minute. Ref played  about 45 seconds  over the 2 minutes , so  technically 15 seconds short.

But aren't players  allowed the 15 seconds to kick a free? So that evens it out
If the ref thought Morgan took too long then he would've cancelled the free, not added on 20 seconds at the end.

Refs rarely blow  for frees taking too long , especially  with goalkeepers coming  all the way up the field.

Countdown  clock like the ladies game , is badly badly needed

Yep. I was hoping  Coventry would win because  that team  haven't a hope of beating City.

Quote from: RedHand88 on April 21, 2024, 02:11:19 PMOnce patton realised he'd effed up by faking an injury he sprinted at top speed over to the dug out so he could come back on  ;D  ;D  ;D

So were Donegal  without  a keeper while play continued?

Quote from: Estimator on April 21, 2024, 01:11:48 PMWatched the first half back this morning
and it hasn't really changed my mind from standing in the Brandywell Terrace yesterday evening.

Derry owned the ball at the start of the game and should have opened up a bigger gap on the scoreboard before Donegal got off the mark.

The shots dropped short especially playing with the wind in the first half were poor.

Even before the goal Lynch was caught twice out the field, once Rogers intercepted the through ball and another when McGrogan wasn't focused on getting the pass from Lynch and Donegal got a point at the other end.

Could have done with someone else other than McKaigue getting on the end of that goal opportunity.

Ref had a decent half, didnt fall for feigning injury from the hit my McGuigan. No real difficult calls to make.. But was he right about the protocol on the injury to Patton??

Not sure if I can stomach the second half yet. Might have to leave that for a while.

I didn't see  this. What happened?

Quote from: RedHand88 on April 19, 2024, 07:42:08 PMIt is a shame that he came up against 115 charges FC in his tenure which made winning the league nigh on impossible and who knows, if they do throw the book at city in years to come, what he achieved may be more appreciated.
In season 2021/22 it wasn't that as a win against Tottenham at home instead of a draw with three games to play would have won the league title for Liverpool.


You seem fairly simple minded but that season Liverpool lost two games and had 92 points, it still wasn't enough. That tells you all you need to know
If there was any justice City would be stripped of all their titles. Will admit that Liverpool side did unbelievably well to get near that financially and I've a feeling physically doped team. Bit like that Mayo team running into the Dubs but at least Liverpool got their title!

Does that  mean Man Utd and Liverpool would   need to bring back their players  from those years and  be presented with the PL trophy?

Sure what consolation would that be anyway? Let's  go to Old Trafford to see  the 2012 team  lift the PL trophy? Would Stevie G's slip  and Aguerooooo  be erased from history?

Nah, if you're going to  punish them , a Rangers-style demotion is the way to go  , with a few years in the Vauxhall conference (or lower). That's  the place for them.

Quote from: AustinPowers on April 19, 2024, 03:13:41 PMDoes anyone play ?

I still have a wildcard to play , the  triple captain and  bench boost.

Could I use two or all of these   in the same gameweek?

It doesn't say anywhere in the rules about something.  like this

You can only use one per gameweek.
There is a double gameweek upcoming , so maybe use your TC there.
Another double gameweek in week 37. So if you wildcard for gameweek 36 , and bench boost in 37 , you could have 30 players for 37.

Good info. Thanks.

Pride is at stake here!  ;D

Villa keeper Martinez was booked  in the  shootout , after having  been booked in the match

But the first yellow didnt carry over  into the shootout , so he continued to face penalties . Very strange rule

What if he was  booked a second time in the shootout? Would  the sub goalie come in? But what  if all the subs had been used up?

A stopped clock is right twice in the day. He also said Liverpool would win the League!

They might yet. I fancy Chelsea to beat City this weekend in the cup and trigger a pep implosion. 2 points behind with 18 to play for. It's still on.

Let's hope so.
