If it's a Corofin Moorefield semi final it'll probably be Tullamore you'd think, roughly half way between both counties.

If it's Fulham Irish v Moorefield probably Páirc Tuatha De Danann, Oiléan Mhanann, roughly half-way between both counties. ;D

That's a very odd outlook to take. Cavanagh was trying to talk to the linesman yet Marc O'Se kept trying to physically provoke Cavanagh into reacting to him.

Proof positive of the prepared narrative when there are certain individuals involved.

No prepared narrative st all. It is not his job to pressure a linesman into anything. He is there to play football.  It annoys the head if me when players or management do that. It shows a lack of respect to other players and officials.

For the record I don't care who the player is. I help out with an underage team and players are told if they talk back to a referee or another player they will be taken off.

As a side note I am pleased to Moy won as I have a relative on the team.

I think players are allowed talk to match officials. Cavanagh was in no way aggressive approaching the referee. Marc O'Se had no business physically intervening.

I think it’s a disservice to tar all Tyrone teams with the same brush. We, Pomeroy Plunketts were beaten by a last minute point from St. Colmilles of Meath in the intermediate club all ireland semi final last year. The final score was 3-11 to 2-13 and anybody that attended the game will tell you both teams played all out attacking football. In fact we ended up being pipped in the Tyrone senior semi final this year playing the same brand of attacking football. So to say we all play the defensive football we seen today is simply not true.

The losing teams will take great solace from that alright.

Thing is when Moy played the right way for the last 10 mins or so and pushed up and went man to man, it was why they won. Brutal tactics before that.
Title: Re: All-Ireland Club Championships January-March 2018
Post by: hardstation on January 27, 2018, 10:07:28 PM
I’m not fully in agreement with that. They simply couldn’t get their hands on the ball. They had little to no possession after An Ghaeltacht went to 14. They couldn’t exactly fcuk men forward when they were running around chasing the ball.
Title: Re: All-Ireland Club Championships January-March 2018
Post by: longballin on January 27, 2018, 10:10:25 PM
when Gaeltacht went to 14!! they sat back in that defensive zonal watever that's about rather than push up and go man for man...
Title: Re: All-Ireland Club Championships January-March 2018
Post by: hardstation on January 27, 2018, 10:19:44 PM
As I said, they couldn’t win any ball around the middle. An Ghaeltacht played a keep possession game. They had to ensure they didn’t concede any more. Pushing men up the field is grand if you’re winning ball. They were chasing the ball the whole time.
Title: Re: All-Ireland Club Championships January-March 2018
Post by: longballin on January 27, 2018, 10:26:59 PM
We'll agree to disagree. I thought they were holding back ovrr defensive till it dawned on them that Gaeltacht have 14 men and we're a point down we better go and seize this... and pushed up and got offensive.

Blatantly obvious O’Se tried to provoke and get Cavanagh sent off. Is talking to the linesman in an attempt to get a man the line any worse than physically provoking someone so they’ll react and get the line?

Also hilarious to see O’Se completely shit a brick when Cavanagh finally does react.

Glad to see Moy progress to the final on behalf of the county.

However being a Tyrone man I have to say the way Cavanagh went crying to the linesman was a bit much for my liking. That has been the reason Moy have not been the most liked club within Tyrone at times.

Granted their Tyrone players did come in for abuse in the club game (like others) but the constant crying to refs from the Cavanaghs has ryled many a team in Tyrone.

I don't think O'Se was trying to get him sent off and if I seen what Cavanagh was at I would expect one of my own to react the same way. Let the officials do their job.

And to add the insult Cavanaghs patronising interview afterwards is pure puke - I'd say the O'Ses would give you a fairer view off the incident and prob say he can piss off instead of all the cliches!

Jaysus - not really following you now.

I Just didn't like how it looked and i'm not looking at it with any type of Tyrone glasses on. Sometimes calling out some of you own can be difficult.

I just think that I would prefer the reputation associated with Marc O'Se than with Sean Cavanagh. Both top quality footballers - some of the best we've ever seen. One cries to refs and does loads of cliched interviews and the other doesn't.

My two cents!

You know why those reputations exist? One team are media darlings, the other are media pariahs. The actions really don't seem to matter as the narrative is predetermined.

That was all had to be said. The Roscommon player kicked, he had to go, he will maybe learn not to do that again. Tough lesson but don’t see the rush to criticise. The game should have been out of sight at half time.

OK, in two matches opponents struck out. Why wouldn't he point it out to the refs? I just don't get your point. If a player patted him on the head and he went down to fake a hit, that's beyond the pale, but pointing out went someone has struck out is ok.

Are you saying that digging off the ball is ok and has to be tolerated if the ref didn't see it?
Title: Re: All-Ireland Club Championships January-March 2018
Post by: WT4E on February 05, 2018, 09:49:01 PM
Not saying it should be tolerated - the ref has plenty of eyes and ears at these high profile matches and should be able to catch most things. Some may be missed and thats unfortunate but I do think that Sean Cavanagh has always been a whinge to officials and it doesn't look good - there are plenty of top class footballers like him that don't get involved like this.

All my point was is I know he's doing nothing wrong but I prefer someone like Marc O'Se who goes about his business the way he does as opposed to Cavanagh!

Them 2 boys would of clipped you back if you punched or kicked them, something you cant do in todays game. were not living in the 80s any more.  If Sean ever reacts to that he will end up watching from the line as well.  If there has been an infringement of course your going to try and gain a competitive advantage.  Its the indiscipline of the opponent that causes the reaction and that's where the problem lies.

Delighted Corofin won especially after that scandalous sending off. The Moorefield full back, Liam Healy, is a disgrace for doing that. Also, that referee needs to be stood down for making such a crazy decision in such a major game. Clearly Farragher should be cleared to play on the final.

Nice to see a corner back scoring the decisive score of the game.

It would have been an absolute travesty if Moorefield had of won that, Corofin as expected operate a couple of levels above them and if it wasn't for the sending off would have been more comfortable. That being said Moorefield for once malfunctioned up front which was in start contrast to the Kildare county final when they played with 13 men and took pretty much every chance they had and in the semi where they blitzed a fancied more talented Athy team. Corofin were extremely physical didn't give them anything easy though which is the difference I suppose.
I can't see them defending the Kildare championship this year either.

Left at the final whistle, Molloy came on for NUIG on 39 mins, Liam Silke injured his hand so didn't play any part. One of the worst Corofin displays I've seen in a while but the fact they had to play the whole game with 14 men contributed to that, being a man down they couldn't play their usual fast paced kicking game. Kieran Fitz and Ronan Steede 2 of their best today.

We say that every year about Moorefield but yet they keep coming back. The scandalous change to the championship structure will suit them as well. On the red card when it's clear and obvious in camera as this is Farragher should not only have his red card rescinded Healy should get a ban. Sick of theatrics in all sports at all levels.

I don't think the extra games will suit them at all. The likes of Celbridge, JTB and Athy might benefit as it will allow the county players to gel a bit better while Sarsfields will probably be a lot hungrier this year and there is little between them and Moorefield. Naas should be there abouts too while Clane and Carbury have good young players coming through so the championship is more competitive than 90% of other counties. I'd rather have a competitive championship over having one dominant club.

Agreed on Liam Healy but it happens in almost every game that players go down holding there face without contact being made, a Corofin player did the same a few minutes after. Retrospective bans for doing it in televised games is the way to go.

They used to rotate it then stopped and had the football on last. personally I much prefer the hurling last (providing its a tight match) and as you have said, it should be a lot closer this year..

And from memory it’d be at least a decade before that when the hurling was on second. Certainly from 98 onwards it’s usually been hurling then football.

Well done to Corofin. They have a Crossmaglen style stranglehold on the Galway county championship which isn't great but hard to begrudge them when they play such brilliant football. Especially suited to a big pitch and good surface like at Croke Park.

Nemo were slight favourites with some of the bookies before the game. an outstanding display by Corofin everything clicked for them on the day.

A great time for GAA in Galway.

Minor and U21 Connacht champions 2017. Best senior club side in Ireland in Corofin,Galway senior footballers into the Div one final and the current minor and senior All Ireland hurling champions.

I’d seen enough of Corofin to know they were likely to win this one with something to spare. Nemo were the greenhorns in this equation. If they ever get back to the AI final they’ll be better for this experience.

6 or 7 I reckon but only 2 or 3 might make the team. Hard to say just yet though.

Kinda gone under the radar but it shouldn't be overlooked that Daithi Burke won an All-Ireland hurling final and was the All-Star hurling full-back last September and kicked 0-2 in an All-Ireland club football final yesterday.

In the dying days of the dual player at that level that will be extemely rare going forward.
