Far, far, too early to talk about anything after the first match in the group stage of a knockout competition, as any Belgian could tell you.
Which teams would be thinking they could give a good rattle to the reigning champions?

Aviva not available? Bigger ground more money?
It's not in Cork, boy

Dublin are juiced up to the hilt.

It’s time someone said it.

It’s fairly obvious watching that.

Pace pace pace all night long.

They have pace everywhere.
When they go, they go hard & fast.
Then someone else has a go.
It's not the same fella every time.
Is it not Clones?

I suppose not a bad performance from Tyrone. Definitely better than last year.  More control and less of a gap to the Dubs.

Rumours intensified this evening that the GAA had agreed to open the stadium, but RTÉ Sport understands that there has been no update since this statement.

Tyrone are better than last year but no cigar . That leaves Kerry, Galway and Monaghan.  Can any of them beat Dublin ?

The Dubs should start playing keep ball soon

Unofficial, but looks like it will go ahead in PUC according to those in the know.
If that is true it is fantastic news

In fairness to Ros there aren't 8 teams good enough for 2 groups of 4 . Cavan or Tipp would have had a similar experience

The last minute has the sound of the Rossies being well beaten

Meanwhile the FT is reporting concerns that food supplies will come under threat if the UK leaves with no deal. Presumably this may include wine supplies for Belfast.

Colm is dragged down by Spillane and Brolly and away from their nonsense he would flourish.
The panel should be Colm, Cian Ward and Anthony Moyles.
For every game.
Including hurling.
Ger Loughnane will be onto you, Jinxy. Watch out

That press release is horrendous. All the worst stereotypes of the GAA are being proven true this year.

It's too much like Apres Match

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?
Because what 8 teams are likely to be better than Armagh given the pick ? Dubs, Kerry, maybe Cork, Galway, Mayo and a few from Ulster.
Armagh need a competent manager and a 5 year plan. If Galway could do it so can Armagh

The Trump hush money payment recordings should be interesting.

Cohen is going to be a big danger, all in the lead up to the mid terms...
Have a look at this

Shep Smith on Fox
Someone said that the big problem with lying all the time is trying to remember them all. Trump has the added problem of trying to stay coherent.
I wonder how the Trump base feels about the Prez being all loved up with Putin.

I am really surprised at how often people fall for this trap of "this is gonna finally sink Trump with his supporters"

Which leads me to the following:
1. There is no general understanding of why people voted for him in the first place
2. Many of his opponents are as misguided as his supporters
Trump women voters do more thinking than the men.
National security is supposed to be a GOP speciality. Trump shafted the US to plamas Putin.
That could sink a few candidates in November.
Do they? Wouldn't be too sure about that.. you know many?

He'll hurt the GOP candidates I dont doubt that mostly by energizing the opposition and nothing in particular to do with Russia. The only way it would hurt him in particular is if he is found out to have done something illegal and has to leave office.
It wont hurt him in an election
I don't think he is that secure.
After the Putin presser in Helsinki he was watching feedback in Air Force One and it really pissed him off because a lot of commentators disagreed even on Fox
This was why he walked back on what he said the next day with wouldn't instead of would. I would be interested to see polling from the red states. If Trump is weak on Nat security and folks don't see no tax cut cos the gas price is up what do they see in him?
Same thing as before... Someone who stands up and says the things they believe in...
He'll always blame someone else and turn them into villain of the week and its bought every-time.

You can believe what you want but his core supporters would never dessert him. In an election his biggest obstacle is the "anti-vote" he has energised but the Dems dont seem to have a candidate that can harness that energy in an election.
