Whisper it quietly but we're actually ok at football again.

Youíre pretty much where you were last year and the year before. Youíd swear Wenger has persided over successive relegations if you listened to Arsenal TV GAABoard Branch and not the actual tables.

Long time since Brigids shipped such a trimming in Roscommon. Cathal Shine on today's display is as good if not better than any midfielder Kevin McStay selected for Roscommon this year.

Kevin wasnít choosing to not select Shine because he didnít fancy him as a footballer. And anyone with even an ounce of knowledge wouldnít make that claim.

The result probably not much of a surprise, the teams are on a par but the margin of the win is surprising. That's a Galway POV now so I'm sure I'll be told I'm wrong!

Ehh, it was a bit of a surprise but it was much more about the fŻck up on the kickout after Clannís second goal. Brigids actually leveled after the sending off. The man being gone may have told with time but the goals made it a bit of a moot point. Pity as up until then it was a good quaility match.

Castlebar out. Ballintubber v Breaffy final.

Be interesting to see can Clann na nGael and Annaghdown do as Ballintubber have done and knock out the heavy hitters. No harm to see a number of newish teams in the Connacht championship.

Annaghdown had Corofin on the ropes last year but Corofin still managed to turn around and win by 2. Corofin weren't great that day and while Annaghdown have improved this year I don't think they'll beat Corofin, they could afford to leave Kieran Fitz, Mike Farragher and DaithŪ Burke on the sideline until the final ten mins last week and still win by 7 playing in about 2nd gear. Don't know if Corofin will go all the way this year, Crokes are looking good in Munster but I think they'll win Connacht.

Corofin will have to play Brigids in Roscommon this year if the likely Connacht SF happens. The last time that happened there was a lot of Ďconfidentí Corofin men in tears at full time..

There are no strong teams in junior in Galway at the moment anyway so whoever wins it wonít be challenging for a Connacht title.

No one has any notion how teams stack up outside their county at intermediate or junior.

when you start drinking in the house, that's the beginning of the end, seen far too many people go this way and there is no way back for most.

the pub is meant to be a social meet up, not somewhere to get hammered or worse arrive there hammered.

young ones i know now go out with a fiver (which in my day bought 6 pints  ;)), because they drink their fill of cheap booze from the off sales before heading anywhere

Shocking carry on altogether that a different generation has different values and prefers to do something a different way.

Coming in half way through a season and expecting to just walk back into a team (league finalists no less) is incredibly disrespectful. Itís pretty clear Cora believes her own hype and canít see how terrible a headline that is for her crediblity.

It was a back slapping exercise. Look at us arent we great. Mcguigan shouldve been questioned about the frampton cash and courtcase. Finbar furey is on constantly. Oh and of course the constant apology for the moronic northeners who gave the rest of the country a bad name for so long. Very poor show. No new vuests same sh1t just a diff stage this time

Yeah, a celebration of the dispora is the time to amush McGuigan with questions about a court case. Would ya ever get over yourself.

Mindlessly parroting the ĎLate Late is shÓtí skit even when itís quite obviously not shows a remarkable dedication to dogma.

The problem with last nights show was it had all the usual guests except they were being interviewed in London. Was a great opportunity to have a few  'New' guests in. Topics like Brexit were begging to be discussed last night.

What I saw was excellent. They interviewed crowd members and even the famous people were very heart felt in what it was like being away from home. And they had Nigel Farrage (probably the most questionable decision) on at the end so Brexit was definitely a big topic. Probably the best Late Late in years outside of the Toy Show.

Has McGregor gone into media exile since last Saturday night, I haven't seen an interview with him yet since his defeat which is very unusual for him.

Err, look at his social media before posting this.

I was referring to an interview. He didn't do the post fight press conference and hasn't given an interview since then either to the best of my knowledge which is unusual given his media profile. I highly doubt if McGregor personally runs his own social media content and there is rarely anything of any interest on it anyway.

Youíre from a very different age if you think you need to do an interview to break media silence in 2018. Ladís been as visible as ever.

Now that things have settled down, does anyone have close to full story why Roachford wasn't kept on ? did the county board want him out ? or did horan make it know that he was interested in coming back and they decided he was a better option going forward ?
I ddont think they really wanted to get Rid of him as long he way will to do the Chairman's bidding who seems to want to push his influence fard beyond the board room into the the location of trainers who the medics are and what style of play and who is on the Field . see his barley concealed barbs at buckley and McEntee and there is a a raher dubious movement going on at coaching level in the county / academy level called the 'MAYO WAY' based on some notion of how some old Farts see the tradition of mayo football ie. the glorious 52 to 89 era when  most of them grew up.
Horan should be able to manage him but if doesn't hang around too long I know the first place I'd look

..his lack of success on the field?

I donít see any case for it being later. Get it done so everyone can plan ahead.
