People on the WTF thread arguing about player transfers.

Getting something at late notice is difficult, expect to pay over 100e for a week. 

this is one are stats dont tell the whole truth  if derry had to play a 14? at minor it probably says more about th dery setup than mcNicholl.
another way of judging it is players who played senior on the same day like Benny coulter or paddy McBrearty and indeed Wille joe padden( and a few more)

the best minor player i have seen was Kyle coney Tyrone. looked a dead cert to be a superstar but it just didnt really happen for him

Derry got to 3 AI minor finals 80,81 and 83 winning the latter with DMcN as captain so I would say they had a fairly good setup at that time and for a 14 year old to be part of that also says a whole lot about how good he was.

Or maybe playing for Ireland at 19 and getting an allstar at the same age says more about the Ireland and and Allstar setups than it does about McNicholl also. 

It's interesting how the whole tone of the conversation [and mostly among Derry wans, those slippery Galway lads are sayin nathin] is about Derry's defensive setup and how we will counteract the Galway forwards, with hardly a mention of what we might need to do in terms of an offensive strategy to win the game. Which is a reflection of how most people visualise the game I suppose.

I hope RG will be setting a different narrative. 

Alison Morris reported that the letter in question had been sent a while back [before he was caught] and was never intended as a character reference. Sly move by Joe B to use it in court.

I think McKinless will be unleashed to go forward this time after being in a more defensive role the last couple of games.

This match could have a lot of goals in it, for one of the teams, and whoever gets them will win the game, hoping that's Derry but this is a very hard game to call.

As the Chinese leader in the 1980's said when asked about the French Revolution 'it's much too early to say if it's been a success'

Wooly is great because he can be so abrasive.

Kernan started talking today about how Armagh got "dragged into" a melee. Parkinson immediately and sternly called him out on it and let him know Armagh started the row. He also called out Joyce on his comments about the penalties and McGeeney for his messing in the press conference.

I think Colm's ability to cut to the chase and call out bullshit where he sees it sets him apart from the rest. It can go too far at times and his personal twitter account can make for grim reading but as long as he sticks to Gaa, he's more entertaining than anyone else out there.

FS Woolly calling out the bullshit....sure he is the biggest bullshitter of them all.

Someone pushes me I push back.... ok, I don't then ask for all mine teammates to get into a cartoon style dust up in front of 100,000's of people watch at the pitch on tv and in a quarter final game at the home of GAA..

Agreeing that its ok to push back is the first problem, allowing the ref to do his job is a lot easier when its one man instigating it, yellow or red depending on the incident.

The ref has one chance after discussion with other officials to make a call, if he did it by the book, you'd have 8 a side if you are lucky, maybe that needs to happen
The book needs to change then if it says there were any red card offences in that melee bar the obvious one ffs.

first two lads engage in a bit of pushing, the ref can deal with, issue cards appropriately, the others that bomb in are the issue and it's bad enough if it's actual players on the field of play, but when subs and even injured panel members get involved irrespective of their actions then they need made examples of.

How many 'bad' incidents were there before that final whistle?  was there a few melee's?  Did the ref dish out any cards during the game? Or did he just let them at it?

Here's the problem, football is not a contact sport unless there is a fair shoulder to shoulder, that's it, no other bodily contact is allowed, players are only allowed to tackle the ball not the man, if we ref'd per rule book and not use common sense then the game would be sanitised and unpopular (thats my opinion)

A manger was giving off last night in a game I was at saying ffs its a contact sport, which I replied its not bar a shoulder, read the rules

You come out with shite like that and then wonder why people have no respect for referees?

Met a woman on POF one time who was using her daughter's pic as her profile.  The Da must have been a good looking fella is all I'm saying.

Didn't much like Wooly as a player and even less now as a pundit.

I've played championship 3 times in a week at one stage in the past.  Unforgettable sequence of games and would have loved to have had the opportunity to do that every season. As would every other person involved when we chat about it.

Or maybe the adverse effect the traumatic experience of playing so many high intensity games has had on the oul mental health has distorted our reality

Any player would give their left nut to get playing 3 massive games in Croke Park 3 weeks in a row. Anybody that says different must be smoking ganga or otherwise off their f45860g rocker.
