Sure if it's all just prolonging the inevitable hammering somewhere down the line you could say that about 30 odd counties chances in the thing. Still have to try to get behind them and enjoy the ride.

I'll be in for this shouting for Sligo my adopted home, and them playing against Armagh makes it a bit easier to get all into. Tipping a narrow Sligo win with the home advantage taking them across the line.

Gilroy is great.

Have never bought the whole "isn't it shite our journalists don't cheerlead more" spiel.

Francis is the biggest just for his sheer snobbishness. Always get the sense he'd give anything to be 18 again and playing rugby, as if it was the be an and end all in life, other than, you know, pints of Ken and roiding birds.

If Armagh win a few matches then you'll be running around looking tickets for the match. We all know Armagh won't win the All ireland, Jasus even they know that too and along the way they'll take a hiding from someone but until they do i'll be there cheering them on. If it's a poor performance i'll come home giving off about them but after a while i'll come round and getting ready for the next game...C'mon Armagh

Post up a link there to where Rashford has expressed his dissatisfaction...


You were a bit rude so an apology would be in order.

Sure that's a clickbate article with not substance whatsoever. Apparently he told his cousin's friend's hamster.  ::)

The non goal Tipp got v the Déise defined the Munster ranking.

How would it?.

Even if they had won,they still wouldn’t have made 3rd place
They would have had 3 points going into yesterday and an incentive to win

Are you really suggesting they didn’t try yesterday,when on all evidence the opposite was the case?
The "goal" was kick in the nuts to them.
If they had a chance to qualify they would have been different.
The year after an all Ireland appearance can often be poor but the round robin changes the dynamic changes somewhat imo.
As it is this is a year to write off for them
They will be back

Are you seriously suggesting they didn’t give 100% yesterday

I was at the game and Cork were under huge pressure bar the last 2 minutes of injury time.

Home advantage and the amount of games you have to play in a row have a huge bearing on results in Munster,which is hugely competitive.

How did Harnedy get away with the steps for the goal?

Can referee's not count to four?
Waterford player slapped him with the hurley across the grip as far as I could see

Round 2
Tipperary v Mayo
Waterford v Monaghan
Cavan v Down
Carlow v Tyrone
Offaly v Clare
Longford v Kildare
Sligo v Armagh
Leitrim v Louth

I'm picking the teams bolded above as the winners. Mayo, Monaghan, Cavan, Tyrone, Clare, Sligo & Louth.
Tyrone can't play Monaghan and that's the only game that would be restricted.

Monaghan should they get to round 4 can't play Fermanagh (providing they lose).

I think if Tyrone can avoid Mayo in round 3 we'll be able to make the super8 as I don't think there's much else to worry about in the qualifiers at the moment and the likely 4 provincial losers wouldn't worry you too much either.
Really looking forward to Sunday. With nothing to lose it feel we'll have a right cut off them. Hearing ticket sales are going very well. These lads deserve our support.

For the first time since Ferguson left, Utd are in a position to genuinely see themselves as serious premiership contenders, thanks to the leadership and ambition of Jose.

That sounds like a quote from 1984.

Hill training - never did it but have read about it and understand the benefits. I'm a plodder but by my standards I've built a decent base over the last 4/5 weeks and run 3 times a week. My goal is the Warriors Run (14km up and down a mountain, tough event) on August 25th, firstly to complete it successfully and then, if possible in a better time than last year. I think if I continue the way I am I'll achieve both those goals. I can feel the improvements in me with the training are more rapid than last year when I was recovering from major surgery. I do think though that one of my runs could be a hill circuit and I'm planning to do the following - comments welcome.

Tough hill that's about 250m long and reasonable steep. It's about a 1.5k from the house. Planning to jog gently to the hill, run up it (good form, strongish pace), walk or jog back down and repeat x 2 (3 times total). Then I'll jog home the long way (about 3k). Aim to do this once a week and add a rep. does this sound reasonable?

My other training in the week: I do a long (slow) run at the weekend (up to 10k this week, adding a km each week) and a run with a group on Wednesday that can be easy or tempo depending on how the body feels (about 5-6k).

3 times is about the most I can fit in.
