I see in today's paper Tyrone have narrowed the pitch in to try and limit the Dubs attacking wide players :-\
Tyrone will have some egg on their face after doing this and still being the wrong end of the result tomorrow evening.

Perhaps Armagh should narrow their pitch next time out against Tyrone in an effort to keep the margin of defeat below 15 points? ;)

Tyrone should try their usual trick of flooding the pitch.

On a different note he had no recollection of the four helicopter journeys he took in sri lanka. There is some memory loss goes on in that party ;D

Must be down to the drink

Serious stuff, the arrack

There was a lot of fuss here about Good Friday. In Sri Lanka, they close the pubs every time there is a full moon.

Never mind the free holiday, the man who quotes scripture and loudly proclaims his Christian credentials was supporting and promoting the regime with probably the worst record against its own Christian minority. DUP hypocrisy.

While there is some discrimination about Christians in SL, it is distorting things to say that they have "probably the worst record", and this distracts from the treatment of ethnic Tamils.

Kicking ourslves again with GAA not giving pitches for Liam Miller charity match.

I think the GAA should have passed a resolution for charity events (as distinct from competitive games) years ago, from the time of the Omagh bombing. But there is no point in people ranting about the GAA in relation to this particular event, the rules cannot be changed in a few weeks.  Asking for Pairc Ui Chaoimh until that change takes place is a bit like the Brexiteers asking for free access to the Single Market.

Interesting to watch ELP’s demeanour in all of that. She was looking on the opposite direction for most of the speech. Clearly feeling as sorry for him as he was for himself

No doubt she'll give him a hug.

Was this him

SF have not been directly making a basket case of the six counties, but they have been hyping up public expenditure as they attempt to do in the 26 counties.

The DUP are trying to make a basket case of the place, with their Brexit bollix.

Labour trying to shaft Kate Hoey for voting with the DUP. . . Brilliant news!!!

She would still get elected even if she stood as an independent.

By not taking their seats and voting on key issues they give the Tories and the DUP a free pass. The end.

In my opinion, this is a lazy analysis. Going to Westminster would give credit to the idea that is appropriate for a  load of British people to decide what is going to happen to NI over the heads of the people in NI. You might by accident have a couple of votes where you happened to hold the balance of power, but generally you'd be up against 600 British MPs and it would be a mugs game.

The SNP are there and nobody gives a damn about Scotland if there are enough English MPs to vote them down.

Add to that, if SF go to Westminster the Daily Mail, Telegraph et al would rant and rave and perhaps cause more loss of votes than SF would provide.

There's probably a 'super 6' currently woth Roscommon and kildare making up the numbers. The rest are going to provide competitive games.

Last year at the same stage we lost to Tyrone by 18 points. It's hard to make an argument that we were better equipped this year to give an account of ourselves.

Armagh, Roscommon, Kildare are in the top 12, but not really able to mix it with the top 5 or 6.

Trying to follow the Kildare game in an airport on Twitter with 3% battery is not good for the heart but what a win, have no idea what is going with Kildare football, zero but an Indian summer. Sunshine footballers.

In the sunshine, their kit dazzles the opposition and confuses them.
