Mate of mine bought 20,000lts of heating oil during covid times for £0.29 a ltr. He was tried for about 3 days to convince me to do similar, jeez I should have listened.

The eggit, will turn to highly viscous sludge. f**k his burner up. How does he have the room to store it.
Sell it and make a fortune

If a player receives a black card in extra time, with less than 10 minutes to play before the match finishes, are they eligible to hit a penalty in the subsequent penalty shootout?

They are 'debarred' from the game for a red card offence ( or combination of ) only.  So after 10 mins the player would be entitled to take a penalty 🙄

Settle lads, all this talk is futile. About 2 out of 30 fixtures in the U20 D L have taken place and this one not likely to happen like the rest.

Both under-20 fixtures this week do site St Brigid's at home in dubious time slots.....?????

Looking at the League Table , Moneyglass can win it , if they beat St.Brigids. Moneyglass have actually played a number of fixtures, while St Brigids have had 4 w/o  to date. You would make Moneyglass favourites.

There no chance people will wait about from about 12.30 to possibly 6.30, used to be great going to a double header in championship

Yeah thats what im saying, they are actively discouraging people from going to both games, you'd look past the time between the games if Dif venues and trying to allow people time to get between them.

Not sure Dunsilly has the facilities or space around the ground to deal with the crowd at a Double header?

OK, this is for football. A player is in possession bearing down towards his opponents goal, as he does so the opposition goalkeeper throws his kicking tee towards the player in possession in an attempt to put him off. Goalkeeper is standing in the penalty area but outside the small "square" when he flings the kicking tee. Any foul/punishment?

It could be a a category 4  infraction ' inflcting injury in a reckless manner' - red card and two match ban !

I suppose if you could get final only tickets it'd be a great job. I'd go to a few games but could have the tickets for the business and give them out to clients that way.

There's a ticket exchange scheme

Intermediate:
Davitts v Glenavy
Glenravel v Ballymena
Dunloy v Aldergrove
Sarsfields v St Pauls

I *think* those are what they are anyway. I read on SG Ballymena play Glenravel so that would be how the rest would pan out based on that I think...

Juniors:
O'Donnells v Laochra Lao
Pearses v St Malachys

You would assume Ballymena favourites for intermediate. Dunloy have a strong lineup at present though too with two Elliots, Cunning and Molloy. If they continue to play they'll maybe be hard beat but depends how the hurling pans out for them.

IFC  Qtrs 
A. Sarsfields v St Pauls
B. Glenavy  v Davitts
C. Glenravel  v Ballymena
D. Aldergrove v Dunloy

Semis
A v C
B v D

So for the majority of adult teams that didnít make it through to their respective championship QF, thatís it, season over before the end of August. The new split season calendar has fairly shortened the year all round. There is likely 7 months before the league starts again.

Antrim have made a mockery of the split season. They were the first county in Ireland to start their leagues, and of course no county players allowed to play (hardly a split season then). The C'ship now has over half the teams out and it's not even September - what was the rush? Surely our leagues should be wrapping up now and Cships starting in Sept?

22 teams with at least one game left. That aside, I thought it was refreshing to play championship games in the  summer  instead of howling wind and rain of autumn. Although,  weather not always reliable

As tonight's draw between St Galls and LD demonstrates there is very little between a lot of clubs. As I said before there are no superclubs around anymore, a club from bottom six is capable of going toe to toe with any of the so called top six. On any given day that is.

Focus on one game at a time and see where it takes you. Look beyond that and you're asking for trouble!
Yes BS gort na Mona could beat Cargin or Creggan.

Straight  knock out could still have a lop sided   outcome , although top 4 in league could be drawn in either side , as is current.
Tbf to GNM , they wanted to play in IFC , this year and were turned down !

Aghagallon, Tir Na Nog and Gort Na Mona all in a 3 team group in the senior championship. Only noticed today after seeing it laid out in tables in todays Irish News. The bottom 3 teams in the league, whereas Creggan or St Johns will go out tomorrow. Something badly wrong with that draw.
Ah.....luck of the draw ...is a random outcome of a draw
