Mignolet going for crosses that he will never reach.
Gomes has a look on his face that says "I'm frightened". He was very bad.
Lovren was a disaster.

Why do the Liverpool backs want to pass the ball amongst themselves and creating completely unnecessary danger?

Re : ciaran whelan xv

Id have doherty in over kilkenny or else mcloughlin
Agreed. Kilkenny was handed his arse by Keegan last weekend.  Obviously all the talk this week has been about the stray GPS but KK outplayed to an extent that he hadn't experienced previously.

The first one wasn't off side so swings and round about. On the other hand okazaki was bang out of order for tugging Mignolet's arm.
Maguire who won the first header was def offside

THe 2016 census showed modest increases in all counties bar Mayo but don’t let that fool you. The flood of non-nationals moving into all parts of Ireland during the period 2011-2016 brought up the figures and masked the drop of in the native populations of those counties. Dublin grows bigger and stronger while the western seaboard is losing ground all the time and the GAA membership reflects this in both instances, rural downwards and urban upwards.

Tut, tut... you mean non-Irish nationals surely? Or are you stating that these individuals are nationals of nowhere? :P
Fear, you are having a really sloooow day!
You should know that in common parlance, the term I used means what I meant it to mean, if you know what I mean.
Most of us are bright enough to know that those non Irish nationals are natives of some country and it's tautology to emphasise that fact.

I hear you Lar, loud and clear, however this non-national is a lazy negative term that sickens my hole: why not something positive like overseas national? In these xenophobically febrile times there are too many boneheads just chomping at the racist bit to denigrate our fellow travellers with anything that denotes a substandard status, we should not indulge!

And tough, tough luck on Sunday last a chara ;)

Young people with connections abroad are playing Gaelic games throughout the country. Last Sunday we saw young Devidas Uosis perform at the highest level for the Kerry minors.
Hadn't their U17s a white South African chap whose club is An Ghaeltacht? ?!!!!
You could add in Shairoze Akram too, the first Pakastani-born player to win an All Ireland medal. For those not in the know, he was on Mayo's U21 side that beat Cork in the final. I'm told he's a cert for a place on the senior Mayo panel next year.
There are bound to be many others throughout the land but are still only a tiny fraction of the numbers playing Gaelic. As well as that, the probability is that those the kids who arrive in this country will  have played soccer beforehand. Left to their own devices, they are likely to opt for soccer - as a first choice anyway.

Pakistan-born, Roscommon-raised, with a Roscommon accent to match..
Well, nobody is perfect and in spite  of those considerable drawbacks, he's gonna be the next Andy Moran.  ;D

Pomeroy will be sick after that. They were on top and couldn't finish it out. They tried to run down the clock wrong move v Clonoe, they don't quit. It was a good game from a neutral point of view. Mc Clure was the boss in second half but next day out I expect Clonoe to have laverty and co back on form. Even start mc aliskey. They

Laverty wasn't in form because he was marked out of the game by Brendy Burns.

Every county has games with unsavoury conduct but Derry tops the pile by some distance. Not a week goes past without reports of serious indiscipline and there never seems to be any punishment. Most if this has nothing to do with sport.

Derry CCC is a shame on the association.

Faith in God is not rational,because it cannot be proved.If science is so wonderful why hasn't it solved all the world's problems?

9 hours for that reply - I doubt you believe in anything but your own self importance, maybe a portydown thing.
