Laying down at work today because my bad back was playing up and then getting my leg trapped against the table a wall in the vacant office. Then the University girl on a year's placement having to free me from it.

That kinda grind my gears today.

People saying "laying" when they mean "lying." You lie in the present tense, you lay in the past.

I seems to be almost universal in US speech to use the transitive 'lay' (to lay something down) for the intransitive 'lie'.
Present tense, 'lay', past tense 'laid'.
I am laying down. I laid down yesterday.

Lay down the law, Hardy.

That bollix' hasn't got laid since 1999.

This Hoffenheim crowd were brilliant at home last year. Think they won every home game in 2017, bar one draw, including beating Munich. Probably a good time to play them though.

I'm hearing that at training they have been playing Aidan McCrory at 14.

If we can't win the war, win the fight. Employ every dark art there is. Spook these manufactured hoors.

Hard to read much into that result. Monreal was the pivot for the defence. Hilarious stuff but forced on them by injury.

It's even more than that. We're being told how shit county football is by pundits on RTE who make a nice sum from telling us that...and that there needs to be a more socialist model. You have the same pundits monopolising print journalism for very handsome sums, regurgitating articles for various publications in the same week at the expense of qualified journalists.

Sick to the teeth of this acute analysis of the present.

Look back over provincial score lines right back the 70s or All Ireland semis or finals. Some real blitzing sessions, especially at AI semi final stage. It won't be like that this year. There have always been 2 or 3 teams far better than everyone else, bar a few years when there was an evening-out. Tyrone won't always be there. This Mayo team are on their last legs though they have been a fairly consistent county in my lifetime. Dublin and Kerry will nearly always be there. Galway, Meath and Cork will rise again...and so on.

The amount of football on TV now is only highlighting that fact to the general public.

Secondly, a lot of these 'club-first' men are lamenting the gap at the top of the county scene. Fcuk the county scene then.

Finally, football isn't a great product. Never was, unless the real class sides met. Again, TV saturation is only showing that now. It's a lot better, technically and physically,  than 20 years ago though.

Maybe I'm wrong but it's a bollocks to listen to. The county scene isn't the be-all and end-all.

Safe travels to everyone today. Banter aside, I hope we get a game that confirms Ulster as the best footballing province. Prediction - Tyrone 2-19 Armagh 0-8

Yes. Can see Armagh getting a late flurry of points.

Geezer hitting Dooher.

I remember Marsden boxing Jordan up the jaw.

Shure you are, you are arrogant, I will give you that!

Ah, not arrogant Stew.

We're a better breed of people just, going right back to 1180.

Tyrone should not be losing to Armagh. But, if we do and McKeever gets someone sent off then it's curtains for the current experiment.

We are the only side capable of messing with the Dubs. Armagh will bend over. But a derby is a derby and like in '02 and '05, you could beat a better side.

Memories of the 00s:

Mugsy's goal after a few seconds in 01
Thornton's miss in 02
Block in 03
McGuigan v McGeeney in 03
Stevie's points in 03
Stevie tearing Bellew a new one in 05
McDonnell a goal hungry hoor 05
McGrane 05
Replay shenanigans 05
McGeeney pointing 05
SF 05
Probably the best game to attend, yet took days off our lives.
McDonnell again the hoor.
Bad substitution.
Mugsy didn't really want to take it.
