Don't think it's quite that simple Maroon Manc.....Mayo and Leitrim still in it with it being round robin.

My fault for not stating I meant the 20's?

In my opinion the Armagh job is a poisoned chalice.  The fans are deluded into thinking they are better than what they are.  Arguably the best players donít want to play and the talent to compete isnít there from what is left. 

Has Mc Geeney has his day in the sun, possibly, but it doesnít matter who is taking that team, the core problems are still going to exist.  Armagh are in the lower bracket of ulster teams at the moment with potentially Antrim, Down and Fermanagh, so losing to one of these teams shouldnít come as a big shock anymore.

Majority of those Armagh people witnessed an era where they won 7 out of 10 Ulsters Championships so naturally there's a bit of expectancy in the County. I don't think anyone thinks they should be challenging for AI's but you'd think they'd have managed to win at least one game in the province in the last 4 years. Its not good enough for a manager in his 4th year.

Do Galway play the winners of Sligo/Roscommon?

If they can find a way of making a second tier championship appealing and prestigious it would work but how do you go about that without falling into the Tommy Murphy scenario.

TV exposure is one thing , media ,pundits etc would all have to respect and build it up in a serious manner .

I just can't see how they can do that unless it was played earlier on in the year and the winners made the super 8's.

It was a decent game to watch but not as good as some have made out.

I'll wait until I see the stats but reckon there won't be as much in the difference between the amount of hand passes on show yesterday as there was last week in Castlebar. I thought both teams gave away so many daft frees and Monaghan scored 1-9 from play just as Galway did last week.

Monaghan were in total charge of the game for long periods, after the first 10 minutes where Tyrone went 0-5 to 0-2 up Monaghan controlled the game although O'Rourke will be disappointed how easy Tyrone found their scores early on.

"Our team without Lukaku, Fellaini we don't have presence". I'd be embarrassed and angry if Mourinho was manager of my club.


I am. Can't understand how any United fan wants this charade to continue. Hope he loses the dressingroom completely sooner rather than later so next season isn't a total wipeout when he's fired.

Amongst my mates and we're all mancs there's only one who wants rid of him and he didn't want him in the first place. Everyone the same as me and will wait and see what happens next season.


Tell him I'm with him! He sounds like a smart guy.  ;D

Sorry to tell you Seanie he's the one one who talks the most nonsense when it comes to football.  ;D

He did manage to get a club Wembley ticket for £90 minutes before the kick off which just shows it pays to be patient.

What age are the 2 Hughes brothers?


Darren would be 31 sometime this year and Kieran would be around 27/28

Cheers, for some reason thought they were younger.

Nothing really to add, glad the season is over. There's no excuses next season.

Not looking forward to Saturday but a but more mature than I was in 05 when they last won it, thankfully there's a world cup round the corner.

Thought McAnespie was very good, did the job Dessie Ward failed to do.

Watched the game at 7 and didn't know the result, said to the wife McManus was very quiet after about 60 mins, wasn't sure he was still on the pitch but what a 10 minute spell from him which showed us why he's the best footballer in the country.

Do I remember a figure of  Ä5m for 3 years??

Can't see a breakdown anywhere, all I can see is RTE's & SKY's deal bring in about 11m a year. If you're figure is right you'd really have to wonder why they bothered.

I've asked before ....does anybody have a figure for the 3 Leinster Prelims?
Looked shocking small on TV anyway -maybe 2k  in Wexford? and 3k in Portlaoise?

4,350 in Portloaise for the double header.
2,600 in Wexford.

6k for 3 games, cause and effect of financial doping.

Would be interesting to see a table of total attendances for the Leinster championship for the last 15 years and see what affect Dublin's dominance has on it, possibly Ewan's next article!

You do realise that the vote is presented as "If this motion to move Dublin out of Croke Park is Passed" funding available to Leinster Counties will be greatly reduced.

It's an impossible choice for delegates.

So to play individual counties is disingenuous, the problem is the GAA, all of it.

But that doesn't fit his point of view though.

When attendances involving Dublin start to dwindle in the next few years which is inevitable if the non competitiveness as expected continues and there's less funding off the back of it then they may have a light bulb moment.

Wallace is making sure as many people hear his side of the story as possible, he's been on OFB, RTE News & Wooly's podcast.

Another example of the bigger picture been ignored for a short term gain in the pocket, the same mistakes made over and over again when it comes to promotion of our games.
