Do Roma win these or other competitions much? When was their last win? Does this get them into the Europa cup or does their league standings do that already?

Roma no, Mourinho who I'm on about yes. Final whistle was all about him, holding up five fingers to the cameras and crowd. Two Champions leagues, two Europa leagues and tonights conference league he must see them as the same value?

Europa Conference league winners tonight and manager Jose Mourinho celebrating it like he's won another Champions league with Porto.
he's every right to, has he not? Are they not supposed to celebrate a trophy now.
To celebrate yes however can be a bit more low key for what is a third tier competition.

GAA Discussion / Re: Mayo V Monaghan Qualifier
« on: May 25, 2022, 04:10:35 PM »
most people seem to consider mayo and Monaghan as being similar teams over the last decade or so but the stats just dont back that up Monaghan have not reaced even an allIreland  semi and just a couple of ulsters .
in that time at the business end mayo have beaten Dublin Tyrone Donegal kerry  Galway Roscommon (and Tipp) and while of course not winning finals bring  Dublin in their prime to a replay.
Monaghan havea long way to go to match that , and while as i explained before this is probably their best chance to beat mayo i dont see them improving on that record this year

Not sure how you have come to that conclusion.

Monaghan a county of a population of a little over 60,000 overachieved to win 2 Ulster's in three years. Overachieved to top their super 8 group in 2018 that included Galway, Kerry and have overachieved by staying up in Division 1 for 8th consecutive years. If Monaghan win this game and reach the last 8 before making their exit it will be considered a good year. If Mayo win and don't at least reach the All-Ireland semi final it will be considered a poor year.
what do you mean overachieved?  they have been hanging  around the top table for a long time now any success they gt is well due but so far they have failed to take the next step into being genuine challangers .
the result against Mayo will not change that

Size and sources of Monaghan few including many of their own expected Monaghan to achieve what they have done over the last decade. It has been no failure when the All-Ireland semi final they reached in 2018 was probably their ceiling.

Up to 18 kids dead now.

Can you imagine the terror those poor youngsters experienced?

Can you imagine your own kids in their place?

What a sick, twisted ideology the American right subscribes to.

18 year old vile twisted individual. Killed his grandmother before killing all those children. I know Americans will never want to part from their guns but surely after all these mass shootings that weapons such as AR-15 semi-automatic rifles should not be allowed.

Always maintained champions league the only show in town, always has been, its only in England and Sky they try to up the Premiership, if its as good as they make out a English team win the champions league every Yr, at ain't the case.
You might have the opportunity to win or lose it as was the case with Liverpool this season however the best English team always wins the league title. The European cup especially since it became the Champions league you don't have to be the best in your own country to win it matter of fact the fourth best in England last season Chelsea won it.

It seems that there isn’t a lot of money being wagered by Kildare supporters on their team. Paddy Power is offering the following odds: Dublin 1/7 Kildare 11/2.
Well Wexford and Meath couldn’t have made Dublin look better! No pressure on shooters, no pressure on defence.

Best for Dublin would be to come through a really tough game. With the objective being Sam, I’d honestly prefer to lose, than to win by 10-12 points, as we’d learn nothing from the latter, and we definitely have things to learn.

Last year i highlighted on here that Dublin was in bother. Less than convincing against Wexford where a mere 0-15 was scored and kept a mediocre Meath in the game until injury time, in that form it was of no surprise Dublin was eventually taken out by the first decent team they played.

As for Dublin right now league relegation seems to be a blessing in disguise they seem fitter and more prepared for this championship. Dublin overcame Wexford and Meath in ruthless fashion. On Saturday they should be beating Kildare by a minimal 8 points and come the end of this championship it will be either Dublin or the team that beats them that will win Sam.

Benny Tierney on RTÉ news spicing up this fixture.

"Tyrone coming to Armagh with their All-Ireland title on the line and we'll take great pleasure if we strip that title off them"

Short straw draw for Armagh however would be a great match to win and the Athletic Grounds should attract a big crowd.

Of the finals on next week, we can be fairly sure no opposing players will be half mugged by the opposition fans. Say something about the mentality of soccer supporters.

It does, loads of scumbags following those clubs in England.  The Ulster and Connacht finals will have fans entering the field next weekend to celebrate and nothing else. After routine victories Kerry and Dublin supporters will likely head home at the final whistle.

Who's to lose though , that's what we need to know!?

Has to be Derry, Rory Gallagher is spitting on his hands as we speak in anticipation of lifting the Anglo Celt Cup.

That is beyond tragic for Liverpool. Gutted for them. To tally a massive number of points and not win the league, twice now, just isn't a fair reflection on how brilliant domestically they are. And then the cruel nature today. Was sure it was Pool's title around 75 mins. Just cruel.
Awful cruel nature was before today. The Tottenham game at home proved to be the killer for them. Next season they'll likely stroll past Tottenham in Anfield.

Liverpool, Klopp and his players need to move on now to Paris where the Champions league title is theirs to lose.
