Surely Geezer is a liability for Armagh
And this
Armagh are a force of social contagion
From the poster who writes this
If the match was decided on the basis of GAAboard posts, Armagh would be unbackable.
Is this an educational standards issue?
Geezer was manager of Kildare in 2011 when they lost to Donegal.

Donegal went on to win the all Ireland the following year.
There is great excitement in Armagh this year after years of mediocrity. I honestly do think Geezer is a weakness. Maybe he won't be exposed at this level.

This format was for 2022 only.
Teams get a minimum of 4 Championship matches next year.

The aim of the Tailteann cup is to  narrow the gap with the Sam Maguire Cup over time. In order to achieve this, teams need more matches.
Next year the top Tailteann teams should be able to beat Meath

Didn't you post up a video a while ago of Westmeath beating Meath in Croke Park and It's not so long ago that a division 3 Tipperary gave your own Galway a good beating in the All-Ireland quarter final.
The point is bringing the overall level up. Westmeath wouldn't be at their level of 2015 yet either

Galway v Armagh, Sunday, 1.45pm at Croke Park

Evenly matched, the clash of Galway and Armagh promises to be the game of the weekend.

Armagh are the real form team coming in after big wins over both Tyrone and Donegal. The latter game showcased an exciting brand of football that will attract the neutrals.

Galway were a bit similar, with their gung-ho wins, but they had a very structured defensive pattern in place in their Connacht final win over Roscommon.

I think Armagh may have the edge here.

just had a look around the local centra this evening

2L jar of milk £1.67
Loaf of bread £1.35
Packed of 6 pancakes £1.52
Box of Cornflakes £4.25
10 pk of ham £2.55
500ml bottle of Coke £1.90
Can of Coke £1.10
Small can of red bull £1.75

Most of the packets of buns/cakes etc are near £4

Where is this going to end.
The only way to get inflation down and put a bit of smacht on it is to raise interest rates until inflation collapses. That is not good for house prices.
There is going to be a pretty big recession next year, linked to interest rates.

Yes I think it's been good but little will have improved for some teams e.g Down had a very poor year with 2 bad defeats.

Still it's the way forward and will evolve with a round robin and possible intermediate competition introduced. But think they need leave the hare sit for a while before tinkering too much.

Down were atrocious this year. On the other hand maybe they were unlucky to draw Cavan in the first round.

I think Saturday's games will go to form for the favourites.

Sunday, I feel that one of the two raging hot favourites, Armagh or Kerry, will slip up.

I'd call neither raging hot favourites, but I guess you're up to a bit of Tyrone mind games ahead of your neighbours hour of destiny on Sunday.

Armagh are the All Ireland Qualifier Champions 2022. They have to be red hot favourites against Galway who lets face it are coming out of a really weak Connacht.
Armagh are a force of social contagion

It's hard to know what level Ulster football is at. This weekend should tell a tale.

According to estimates published by the Fed on Friday, which are purely based on theoretical policy rules the central bank uses as guideposts but does not “mechanically” follow, interest rates should be between 4 and 7 per cent given the current economic backdrop.

Mayo / Re: 1989 All-Ireland Final

That Mayo team was like a FRED process. Fast rise in 89. Exponential decay afterwards. The 1993 semi against Cork was the purest facepalm.

The approaches to this game from Derry and Armagh supporters have been interesting to observe.

The Derry ones have been reserved. They are refusing to get too excited and won't look beyond Clare. They're like the Sperrins; hard, cold but toweringly strong
.
The Armagh ones are like a pile of children on Christmas Eve. They're talking about All Ireland Finals, Sams, takeovers. They're like a Buckfast-tasting convention; jollified, crazy, and a bit messy.

Nothing wrong with either approach but it's just interesting to observe from a county in between them.

https://www.rte.ie/sport/football/2022/0621/1306041-morgan-armagh-have-unbelievable-all-ireland-chance/We have Stephen Maguire in with us from time to time, he works with Sport Ireland (High Performance Coach). One of the things he put forward to us was owning the pitch in terms of your persona. He talked about his time with Team GB and their big thing was owning the warm-up area and going in with the swagger that 'we're going to win'.

"He said that it was visible to him that we didn't have that sense that we were winners this year, or that we expected to win. Anytime we went to play Dublin as reigning champions, Kerry as reigning champions or Monaghan or Donegal as reigning Ulster champions, we always felt that those lads were not going to let it go. There was a feeling that everybody expected us to lose every game this year. That was from the aura we gave off.

Mayo / Re: 1989 All-Ireland Final
« on: June 22, 2022, 09:06:48 AM »
Cork had experience because they played 3 finals in a row. Mayo didn't get back into another final until 96. There was no way to build up a layer of cuteness if you were depending on Ulster to get to the all Ireland .
