Limerick got over the line. Theyíve always had a decent hurling team with great tradition but always in the shadows of the Cats Tipp and Cork. McManus is a huge sponsor within the county and his club. South Liberties, as JPís horses run in his clubs colours. They are years behind what Dublin gets as seen from their current success and both coded playing Div1 and competing!

The money wonít make Limerick better hurlers, you need more than being a gym bunny to win All Irelandís, lifting weights wonít make you a better hurling, itís about the skills

No but the money certainly helps the coaching setups and top quality academies. Limerick's development in hurling has been flagged up for a good few years, with a fair few bob going to lads like Anthony Daly to help out.

Yes and if the money is used correctly then theyíll reap from it, currently they are standing above the rest. Wonder when the big 3 will get back?

After last night double bore fest, can we expect goals?
The goal keepers were a little under worked last night. City should be too strong for a 14th placed German team. Juve v Atletico is arguably the tie of the round, hopefully it's a good watch.
As an interest I went for over 3 goals and 9 or more corners!

Dortmund and Porto are the only teams Utd would have a hope of getting past. The rest will duff them

Liverpool to draw Dortmund

It would take someone who hasnít even checked the form Dortmund are in to suggest they could lose to United.

Well done.

Ok, I bow to your superior knowledge of European football! Dortmund being the big hitters on the CL stage, theyíd be the ones with the history of winning it.. itís a cup competition at this stage, games wonít be played till after the new year..

No one will want Madrid and their form is the worst. Though it shows you how they were a one man team for a few seasons
You'd have to miss the barn door with a banjo to write something so dumb that makes Sy look an expert ;D
In all likliehood, Dortmund would wŠnk over Man U in a last 16 tie.

The bit in Bold you didnt read, or Sy for that matter
Thanks,  understood better now.
Hope springs eternal.

Dortmund clearly struggled against a team without their main man, but hey what would I know !

Manager of year winner?

Can't be a serious view. Manager takes most expensively assembled team of all time (certainly 2nd or 3rd if not) to a few straight wins?

I'd have thought the Wolves manager is a shoe in personally. Maybe Warnock if he pulls off an unlikely miracle at Cardiff although his personality probably would mean he'll not even be considered.

OGS will be judged on City and Liverpool - they are Manchester United rivals with Chelsea going through a bit of blip at present.

Not the Spurs game?

It was a good result, but not one I would imagine that'll catapult him into the manager of year territory or even the full time gig at OT.

Spurs battered Utd that day, a combination of shocking finishing and DDG got Utd over the line I'm sure you would agree.

Iíd agree that Ole isnít manager of the year based on half a season, nor did I say the game v Spurs was a battle, but Utd came out with a result, theyíve beaten Chelsea Spurs and Arsenal. That was all I was saying.

Whatever the result at the weekend and again v city, Ole has done plenty to put his hat in the ring for the  permanent position.

I just found it amusing you left out Spurs away from home game.

Reading some of the comments on here I honestly don't know what lads are looking at....but anyway, I'm not going to be negative.

That was very enjoyable last night. Obviously United looked very dangerous in attack and their passing was so crisp and accurate it was a joy to watch. The defending though....the total committment to the job in hand and to each other was superb. Yes I was nervous until the 95th minute but realisitically Romero didn't have too much to do. We all know that man for man United's defenders aren't the most talented but when you're organised and committed it can make up for a lot of deficiencies. To me, that's the most encouraging aspect of the OGS era - the ability to adjust tactically and gameplan. I also love the freedom he gives the players to rotate areas on the field but that only happens if your teammates are aware of what's going on and willing to fill in for you. Pogba made me laugh a couple of times last night....you could see his natural inclination was to stop running after someone a few times but he seemed to argue with himself and kept going reluctantly. He covered a good bit of ground last night. Rashford is downright scary at the moment.

Beaten Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea away in recent weeks. Bring on next weekend.

Well its taken about 3 seasons for that  ;)


As recent weeks have proven I couldn't have been more correct. Why don't you stick to improving your predictions!

But you were negative or moaning a lot, I put a wee smiley face on so I didnt hurt your feelings  :-*

TD3 not doing it for me at all I have to say.

Das Boot series is decent.
How does it compare to the original?

Ive recorded it so will watch it when she's out, She won't watch anything unless its a got a boy meets girl, fall in love fall out of love and get back together again at the end!!.. Cant see it beating the original, It was like being in the Uboat, so tense

Antrim / Re: ANTRIM HURLING
« on: February 19, 2019, 10:03:38 AM »
There should be (in my view) 3 teams into the semi, 3 from these 4, Loughgiel, Dunloy, St Johns and Cushendall... the other teams play off to get an opportunity to play a quarter final against one of the four above.. so that would be Rossa, St Galls, Ballycastle playing each other to see who'd win that group. the winners play a team who drew te short straw as such to have a quater final..

Thats giving the lesser teams a extra 2 games or possibly more depending how they fair. to link it to the league it could mean that the top 3 are straight into the semi finals

Limerick definitely look far better conditioned than most other teams.

Theyíve hit the league running and even with the Ballyhale lads available theyíd have still got past Kilkenny. Impressed with the consistency throughout the squad, you have to marvel at Shane Dowling, the guy has stopped since getting over his injury, outstanding I thought yesterday and brings a level of hurling that the likes of Canning of the modern game and date I say it DJ of before, while completely a different style as ones Iíve mentioned, itís the excitement he brings when on the ball.. played a bit further than normal, he wasnít necessarily playing at 11

Loved True Detective season 1 and this season is good too although it does move very slowly.  I have my suspicions that the daughter wasn't talking about her da when she phoned the cops, definitely something dodge about the DA who was beside the da on TV.
The rhythm of a whodunnit is missing.
It's not a whodunnit per se, at least not like the excellent Broadchurch which keeps the twists moving from episode to episode keeping the audience on their toes. TD3 is character driven, there is a whodunnit but the drama is about the characters.
Where else in modern  tv drama do you have so many one on ones? At the end of ep 5 there's a 10 minute one on one between the two leading protaginists. This doesn't happen as a rule with tv or film drama and rarely in theatre.
TD3 is a superb tv drama.

Very well described. Love the intensity of it, some people hate slow burning plots, but for me if the writing is good and theyíve casted the right actors then itís something I can believe in
