Worth noting Kerry did't go all out in Munster or the league and avoided the 3 games in 14 days by topping their group.

Quote from: imtommygunn on July 10, 2024, 06:03:15 PMWhat the hell is going on in England with that bbc racing commentators wife and daughters being killed by a crossbow attack? It seems a manhunt now underway as they seem to know who did it.

Pure evil and the brother is already serving a life sentence

Quote from: Cunny Funt on July 04, 2024, 10:29:23 PMAndy Moran stepped down tonight from the Leitrim senior gig after three years in charge.

I thought in the paper that Andy was looking another 3 year term.  It was in the paper last week.

They got promoted to Div. 3 and he seemed happy enough to go for another term.

Only thing he said was a 1 year term was no good and he wanted a 3 year term.

What happened?

County board probably didn't agree on the length of time he wanted to say.

Harte will likely have one more gig in him before he retires I wonder will Leitrim or Kildare interest him.

Quote from: Truthsayer on July 07, 2024, 02:17:08 PMGAA has done great job in totally demeaning the All Ireland minor final so they can have a circus at the senior final. The amount of empty seats in the stand and seems to be no-one in any other part of the ground. Is little word of the game anyway. Omagh an awful venue at the best of times..
Unless my eye sight is going the covered stand looks mainly full.

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on July 05, 2024, 12:59:30 PMGalway are favourites because they beat Dublin. I fancy Donegal to win this with a few points to spare, they have managed to have the best route to the semi with a mixture of games played well, could have done better and room for improvement.

Injuries to key players on both sides will play a part and how they both play the ref, it will be a better game that the other I feel for entertainment

And rightly so, how would Donegal have fared against Dublin with it their 3rd match in 14 days when you consider Donegal struggled and lost to Cork when it was 2nd match in 7 days.

Galway haven't lost a championship game by a bit to spare since 2021, the way they set up doesn't allow it but their system also allows teams they should be beating by a bit to spare to stay in games. On the injury front the main question is will two weeks be enough time for Shane Walsh to overcome his hamstring injury, the deciding factor for me in match that will likely be won or lost on fine margins.

Congratulations to Galway, no disrespect to the Dubs have been a great team but no harm to see them knocked out so soon

Up there with the best championship results Galway have produced when you consider today was their 3rd match in 14 days and up against a rested Dublin in their home patch. The rossies in the earlier match showed all the signs of that tough schedule especially their shooting and case not helped of course with playing the all of the 2nd half with 14 men.

Serious belief and momentum for Galway now going into the semi final and it will take a top team to beat them now.

Would be no harm alright but with Dublin,Kerry rested and playing Derry,Galway who are facing into their 3rd match in 14 days they will do well to be competitive for 70 plus minutes never mind beating them.


Mayo fans seem to think it's huge, but Derry and Galway have absolutely no problem playing 3 games in 3 weeks. The big questionmark is whether they are good enough, and for Galway it's whether Walsh and/or Comer are fit (and both have been injured in the past in training so it's not just games where you get injured).


Harte, Joyce have already spoken out about it including trying to keep or get players fit with such a quick turnaround. If done right there should be at least two weeks to prepare for all Quarter finalists. It's a clear scheduling advantage for Kerry,Dublin and not that those two needed any more advantages.

A sad day for the sport with such a legend passing. What passion and pure wisdom he gave to the game he loved.

Quote from: imtommygunn on June 24, 2024, 09:14:41 AMYeah it's pretty much the best draw armagh could have got and the best draw roscommon could have got.
Agree with this .
Whilst people are talking up the Rossies the reality is they were poor enough in the group stages .

If it's a shootout which it should be then Armagh have no excuses .

Don't think you'll get many talking up the rossies and the odds speak for themselves. Not sure I'd agree on poor in the group stages.  It was a tough group with Mayo and Dublin.  The first game against Dublin in Croke Park was still in the balance with 65 minutes played, Dublin's better bench and fitness took over then.  Mayo only beat Roscommon by two points and that included a penalty that probably should have been a free out for steps instead. 

Don't expect any shootout probably a very cagey affair.

Quote from: GTP on June 23, 2024, 06:36:21 PMLooks like a third game of the championship between Derry and Armagh in the final.

First game Derry won by 17, second game Derry won by 2, using interpolation I suggest that Armagh will win by 13. However, I'd be quite happy with 1.

At minor level in 2022.

In the group stages Mayo beat Galway by 14 points and in the Connacht Final by 6 points.

Then in the All Ireland final Galway beat Mayo by 6 points. History to repeat itself with Armagh?

Another war of attrition win for Galway yesterday very much a trademark under Joyce now. Roscommon with a great win in Omagh against the odds, not the biggest surprise considering they held their own for 65 minutes against Dublin and Mayo only beat them by two points recently and got a lucky penalty.

As for Mayo so close to reaching the last 8 last weekend, reaction of the players and management said it all to that draw. Yesterday again should have won in normal time and that came back to bite. I'll never warm to a penalty shootout to decide a knock out championship game but all the best to Derry.

Finally let's be honest it will be extremely difficult for any of Derry, Roscommon,Galway and Cork/Louth to reach the last 4 with having to play their 3rd match in 14 days and up against a rested team.
