Return to the All Ireland 1/4 final straight knock out itinerary for 2019.

Super 8s already set in stone for 2018, 19 and 20. Would take a further motion to end it for next year which isn't going to happen. The first weekend has been a total bust but I'd say it'll be much better next weekend as teams will really have to start going for it.

If there is a change I can see them getting rid of the Croke Park games at the start and, perhaps, move them to provincial grounds. Have Croker full of concerts until August!

Nothing is set in stone. No matter what happens next the first round has been a total disaster both in the fare and in how well it promotes the game. One of the most interesting weekends on the calendar has become a glorified NFL round.

Still think you're jumping the gun. I'd at least wait until the whole process has been completed to give a proper analysis. For example, the hurling change this year didn't start off with fireworks, it was pretty low key and built to a crescendo.

I have barely paid attention to the hurling exactly because it’s a glorified league with the same five teams playing each other over and over just as they did in the spring. If that’s your idea of success I don’t want to see what failure looks like.

Will Saturdays performance have an effect on how many supporters we have at the game?
Talking to a good few people yesterday who would be loyal supporters and id say 50 percent are staying at home.

Luckily the match is at home so!!

If anyone calls themselves loyal supporters and don’t turn up for a home AIQF against a team around our level, fûck ‘em. They’re not supporters in my eyes.

It doesn't matter a bean where  the match can you seriously envisage a big crowd of Roscommon fans at this game?

You are deluded if you think we are at the level of Donegal or anything near it.

You’re deluded if you think we’re not.

Brilliant reply you must be a hoot in the playground

You must be a hoot in the pensioner ward if your memory only stretches back to the last game a team plays.

Holy sweet fcuk will someone, somewhere do something about Spillane. He genuinely sounds like a stuck music track. He just spurts out buzzwords like intensity, drive, hunger, speed whilst banging his fist into his other hand. He makes no valid attempts at analysis and is so far past his sell by date you would feel bad putting him out on the discount shelf in ASDA.

Once again Canavan, McGuiness et al blew RTE totally out of orbit with their analysis. The alternative camera angles, long distance full pitch shots analysed by Canavan really give you a feeling of being at the game and seeing things you would normally miss on TV.

People are fooling themselves if they think Sky’s lads are much better. Michael Meehan has been very good.

I'm told by those in the know he hasn't much time for S&C.
Nor defensive organisation either.
I am not aware of the team having S&C or defence gurus.
Anyway we're technically still in the race for a semi final spot so all is not lost yet  we're the least likely of the 8 to make it.

Shark - I see your point  but I was just thinking of our history of army bucks. Even poor Dermot didn't do very well.

Someone would want to tell the man we’re paying to be the S&C coach he has no time for it. Would you ever stop talking out of your arse?

Whatever happened to Donie Shine?

New managers come in. They get rid of a few of the stars from the previous regime under the ruse of giving youth a chance. Carr, Maughan, McStay, all guilty in this regard. We have such a huge pick in Ros, it makes it easy for them. That last line is sarcastic cos you never know with a few of ours.
Army officers  are not good amateur sport managers.
Most GAA activists I've talked to today reckon McStay is a busted flush and has been found out.
No defensive organisation,  terrible fitness, strength and conditioning levels, random team selections -one buck reckons we piclass names out of 1 hat and jersey numbers out of another hat.
That sort of stuff can happen in year 1 of any regime but by year 3 you expect those type of things to be sorted out.
We may be no world beaters but fck it you expect management to have some kind of pattern and organisation to make the team better after 3 years.

GAA activists. Right. You’ve been waiting 18 months to try to kick McStay in the ribs when the team fell down. Watching us only lose three matches since March 2017 must have really been tough for you to handle in the lead up to the Tyrone match.

A person’s profession has fûck all to do with their ability as a manager, I can’t actually believe I have to tell you that.

It’s hard to even call you a Roscommon supporter at this stage.

Don’t forget they lost a man for a stupid, selfish action with 15 minutes to go and the game still in the balance.

They were already well on their way to shipping a beating by then.

The narrative coming out of TSG doesn’t reflect the game I watched. “Galway good and ‘effective’ but Kerry very poor.”

Both were poor IMO with Galway slightly better and getting breaks at important times. There really wasn’t a pile between them. Sloppy play, lack of penetration and attacking ideas equally from both teams.

There was a big gap between them today.

GAA Discussion / Re: Dublin V Donegal

Good solid home win for Dublin. Always had Donegal at arms length. Dublin won the game running the subs bench, not getting injuries, not getting cards and slowing the game down for the last 15 minutes.

The 7pm start is tough on Donegal supporters.

Jez what time did the Donegal supporter get home last night at?

1am?

The expense of travel?

A serious disrespect to Provincial champions!
And same for any Tyrone and Roscommon supporters that stayed on for the second game, and many did.
Dublin playing in Omagh next week at 7pm too. Saturday games should be 3.30pm and 5.30pm or thereabouts.

Did any of these supporters wait on? I'd presume if they did they were staying the night?

In fairness the Rossies are not as far away!

With the late start and the fact many of the trains back were tight on time the idea many Roscommon supporters stayed behind is a little laughable. To see Dublin keep Donegal at arms’ length for 75 minutes in the most predictable manner possible? Not exactly heart-racing stuff.

If the Super 8 format isn’t axed there’s something seriously wrong with the GAA brass.

I don’t think it follows that because Tyrone hammered Ros, they would beat Galway (or Mayo for that matter). A poorer 2017 Galway still hammered Donegal.

Tyrone would beat Galway or Kerry with a few to spare, they’re on a different level.

How would they get on against Monaghan?

No, Tyrone are now AI favourites because they beat Roscommon and Cork. Anything else is pure heresy, Bunker.

Tyrone on another level, lol.

13
Galway obviously the next best thing to Dublin now.

I told ye about Kerry. But the likes of Rossfan will be very quiet about that fact. It doesn’t fit their narrative.

14
Galway have gone the way of all defence to wear down the opposition like Tyrone and Donegal! Ugly as hell to watch and it not win an all-ireland

No style of football will when Dublin exists.

The Super 8s have turned into a complete shîtshow.
