Venom 6.5/10

Very surprised this wasn't better. Hardy does not give one of his typical performances, his accent (for me) was terrible. The story was ok. It definitely did not feel like a Marvel movie, more like a DC movie. It did not stay true to the comic book story and there's no plans I would imagine to integrate this character in to the current marvel universe on the big screen.

It was also shorter than most block busters. I think about 1hr 40 mins. Not that that should dictate the success or failure of a movie but i remarked on it as we left.

I would wait to watch it on blu ray....
Venom isn't part of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and is filmed by Sony. Venom is part of the deal Sony had to film the old Spider-Man films and Sony can produce these films without the input of Marvel studios. It was aimed at kick starting 'Sony's Marvel Universe'. So it isn't related to the Disney owned Marvel films (Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Avengers, Guardians of Galaxy etc.) and would explain the different look, feel and (probable) quality of the film.

Agree about Belanaleck being a coming team but would expect Banagher to take them.  Think Belanaleck missing their main forward too.  Fancy Limavady against the Down champions too, who are traditionally poor at that level.  Granted I know nothing of Limavady.
I'd have this Limavady side as being slightly better than the past couple Derry Junior winners but not sure if they'd be fit for the likes of Emyvale. A Derry club has never won the Ulster Junior club but have reached the final a few times.

Banagher will probably fancy their chances for a run and have a few present and past county players, most notably Mark Lynch. Derry have won Ulster 3 times at Intermediate level (Craigbane twice and Coleraine).

Fermanagh folk what are Belnaleck like at this level? Similarly Down folk are Teconnaught likely provincial winners or doing well to win county? Derry clubs have a poor enough record at intermediate and especially junior in Ulster.

I also think Brolly is spot on regarding UFC. Its basically a bloodsport

Bit harsh on the Ulster Football Championship.

i hear Gormley has stepped down from Glen.  They were really poor against Lavey on Sunday. 

Why can Glen and Magherafelt not get over the line in senior championship and win one.  Being townie teams is a lazy analysis, but what is the reason considering the amount of good youth players they produce?
It's Called pedigree. Most Successfull clubs have that knowledge of winning championships. E.G. It's taken Banagher 53 years to win an Adult championship. I don't recall Glen winning one and Magherfelt's last win was in 1977
I think if Glen or Magherafelt had been playing in the intermediate Adult Championship they would have won their fair share down through the years.
Probably but Glen were Intermediate 5 years ago and didn't win the championship. It took Swatragh a couple of years to win one when they went down too. They aren't as easy won as people think.

Maybe the wrong place to ask, but anyway - would there be available anywhere an even half-way detailed map of Tyrone with parish boundaries superimposed? Plenty of maps online with parish boundaries and plenty with towns & villages, but can't find one with both.

I think Slaughtneil need to get Chrissy wheeled out in front of the camera's again to get the good PR started again

"We only have 100 families in this small parish who all speak irish, and we have no pub, but a great post office. We fatten our cattle and share them amongst everyone.  Oh and we play 3 codes, dont forget about the 3 codes!"    ::)

Or maybe stick up a picture of some urban area - it must of been a few of those soccer type hooligans that came along to our games. Sure we're the super Gaels and far better than the likes of themuns.
That's a strange spin on it.
