GAA Discussion / Re: Roscommon v Armagh
« on: Today at 08:44:01 AM »
I can't understand how any Armagh fan would support Geezer continuing. Galway hurlers had a lot of poor managers over the last 29 years, drawing fans through the wringer again and again but none of them got 4 years plus on the back of such mediocrity. The  problem with serial managerial incompetence is what it does to the spirit of the players.  Armagh should be at the level of Roscommon at the very least.

The players spirits seem to be fine

I would argue that the win against Clare was based on the excellenc team spirit displayed. The McGeeney out brigade will tell you it was down to luck and / or a Clare collapse.
Armagh should be reaching the last 8 regularly.
Beating Clare should be something routine for a country like Armagh.

Why should we be reaching the last 8 regularly?

There is such a scrutiny on entertainment now. Football was never attractive bar the odd clinker of a game. Only the top 2/3 sides, when they clashed, produced top quality skilful entertainment. The 80s were shit. The 90s produced some wars of attrition in Ulster but no AI final like the last few now. The 00s again when the top 2/3 met. Same as now.

Correct. People don't know they are born. Football has been better than it ever has been. Some people can't think for themselves and listen to Brolly et al.

I thought when I went a bit berserk on the shot clock idea people might have put some thought into new rules, but alas no. Still some crazy stupid ideas floating about on this thread.

Brilliant, just brilliant.

People who are bored out of their minds watching football, are only that way because theyíve no minds of their own.

What a condescending shit you are.

óó-

Footballers technically might be on a different level now than in any time in history. Thatís called evolution.

Football as a sport needs to evolve in tandem.

óó-

The backpass in soccer was outlawed 20 years ago. You still get shite soccer matches, and you always will. But spectators are no longer forced to watch a quarter of the match where every attack culminated in Hansen passing it back to Grobelaar, who then killed the clock. Rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat. It was not a magic pill, but it does make for a better spectacle.

The back pass wasnít outlawed just tweaked.

A diktat to referees to work to rule when teams are taking the piss like that would help. Every time Kilkenny got the ball in that period he took a minimum 6 steps. Most players hit 5 steps without getting called up which is fair enough as it would destroy the game and a referee has to employ common sense but when the piss is taken like that something has to be done.

So five steps, which is illegal, is fair enough but 6 is taking the piss ? OK

Very disappointing to see Dublin play that shtye for the last 10 mins.   I'm getting g fed up with football, time to bring in some changes before the entire entertainment aspect disappears...

More disappointing from Donegal not trying to press them I would say

Bullshit, itís rank to watch. The object of the game is to attack and score not play keep ball in midfield.

The object of the game is to score more than your opponents. Dublin done that

After the abuse I have taken on here since expressing an opinion contrary to the KKMcG club I feel entitled to be a little sarcastic.

What abuse have you got?

Well spoken , self elected president and spokesman for Armagh core support , if you donít go to a McKenna cup match you have no opinion !
What about the thousands who wonít go because they vote with their feet !

Thatís not what he/she said. And youíve a cheek calling someone else self elected spokesman for Armagh support

Was in gym today in Westpark Tallaght and Tom Parsons was doing a bit of gym work. Hopefully we will see him back in action next year.

If he even plays for his club in 2019 it will be a miracle.

Yes, the silence on his recovery and his date of return, tell it's own story. A public forum is not the place to discuss this matter.

Why? People genuinely want to see him back playing and would like to know how he is doing in his recovery

That I cannot answer because I donít know who is available or interested, I do think it is too much for one man and think we would need a management team with experts in the areas of S&C , fitness , tactics , coaching and analysis , nutrition , logistics and physio , all egos parked at the door and leave anyone looking huge expenses on the lucrative club circuit . Not a case of what can Armagh do for me but what can I do for Armagh !!!

In an ideal world who would you like in?
