Two of the best (if not the best)  left backs in the EPL came from the Scottish league -  SPL teams have been receiving criminally low prices for thier players, at some point they need to make a stand (although that's difficult given their overall finances and prize money)

It is very basic....but MS Paint will be on your computer already, that will give you something very rough. It can be downloaded onto a tablet.

Thanks, yes- been wokring with that already - need something a little more advanced, that has easy drag and drop, savable tempates and sports (ball) related icons etc

Can anyone reccomend a decent bit of software for desiging drills - doesn't need to be fancy, just something that allows you to knock up a quick drawing w. words that can be saved, shared and printed off as necessary?

Yes, Britain played an important role in WW2.

No, Britain did not stand alone.

Nor did it defeat the Nazis by itself.

There were more participants than the US, Britain and Russia on the allied side. It’s a shame they seem too easily forgotten.

Seems strange that few people are concerned by the amount of money (even if only wages for the loan players) being wasted on 'projects' and mediocrity by Lawell and he board.

Soro, Klimala, Bayo, Shved, Taylor, Bolingoli, Connell, Afolabi, Bauer....

All very well taking a punt on 1 or 2, but rather than spend 2-3 million on each, how about actually buying a player ready to step into the first team.

Not convinced the scouting system has gotten any better since Congerton left.

Still galls that we spend millions on Bayo etc yet let McGinn slip away for the sake of a few hundred

One can only hope that the board see fit to buy a plug and play left back/ left wing back, center half, DFM and 20 goal striker + keep hold of Eddie as Sevco will re-mortgage the lot to stop 10-iar

What's the story with Frimpong..on the bench last 2 games..is it injury, attitude or paying the price for a quiet first game v Copenhagen (galling some other 'favorites' NEVER pay any sort of price for being dung on Lennon's watch)?

Numerous missed goal chances in the first half, poor discipline, poor execution of the basics, a harsh sending off, McShane getting injured  and a total collapse after the penalty, which came after there was just 3 in it.

A strange, strange game where everything that could go wrong, did go wrong for Tyrone (and vice-versa for Galway)

you have to winder if a new voice is necessary as everything seems a little stale

If Tyrone and Mickey were so clearly targeting Clifford, why did they wait until the 65th minute to unveil their masterplan, when Clifford had been booked in the first half? The media have declared Ben McDonnell was sent on to mark David Clifford (most probably don't realise he is a midfielder)- the play up until the incident Clifford had won a free in on the wing. Clifford's marker McNamee and Jack Barry were on the ground between the 45 and 21. Clifford had made his way towards the square where a number of Tyrone players had gathered to defend the free kick, and he encountered McDonnell.

What do you think you are doing using facts and logical against the anti tyrone bridage. Are you mad.



So they initially tried to get another sent off but what a bonus Clifford arrived and was trailed to the ground, They used to say Kerry were cute hoors. At what time was Harte sent off?

Nope, both McNamee and Barry got black cards, again no real camera evidence on what happened and how is started.

The only player sent off to that point had been Peter Harte on a second yellow, for an off the ball incident with another player who only received their first caution. Harte has a far bigger history of being targeted cynically from opposition players, indeed the last time they played Kerry he was systematically fouled at every instance right under the nose of the referee and nothing done about it. Harte was sent off about 10 minutes before not long after he picked up his first yellow.

There were also the case when McShane was introduced and his marker tried to start something with him straight away, hit him four or five shoulders, McShane didn't bother getting involved in the silly stuff with him.

The narrative is as one eyed as you expect when it's both Kerry and Tyrone involved, the facts of the matter don't seem to matter whatsoever. There is no conclusive evidence to say what happened but it doesn't stop people making their mind up.

I think Kerry have shown themselves to be the most cynical team in the country in the past few years but actual facts don't come into it in the propaganda campaign behind Kerry GAA.

Nonsense post.  Kerry have never engaged in cynical football.  We play football in the right way. No blanket defence.  Were the best kick passes in the game.  Our backs have always been pure footballers and never have to engage in sledging or cynical play.

 ;D ;D ;D

We wouldn't been cynical like the jackeens. Pinning and holding 14 players on David Clarke last kickout in final 2017

"Let's go back to the All-Ireland qualifier between Tyrone and Kerry in 2012. In the last 30 minutes, there were 14 occasions where Red Hand players were dragged down by Kingdom opponents following kick-outs."

Didn't see any dragging that day. A couple of our lads laid down a couple markers no cynical.  Tyrone were the ones that lost the head that day.

You probably weren't born yet.

I was 57 that year FYI

Wow, your comments are incredibly naive / childish for a grown adult.

I might  be slightly bias towards my county  but in my 50 plus following kerry I genuinely have never seen them play cynically.

Then you haven’t watched Kerry play a lot

"Cynicism" as Gaelige = "Cute Hoorism".

That's why you never hear of Kerry person admit their players were cynical........they were only ever being 'cute'

Apart from Tadgh...who came clean on it...

And Gooch who admits everyone is at it...

https://www.rte.ie/sport/gaa/2019/0711/1061519-cooper-the-best-teams-use-cynical-fouling/

or maybe Mark O'Se    ~"‘Yes, Kerry are cynical, but what county isn’t?’

The former Kerry great outlined how nearly all the best teams had players and an attitude of never hesitating “to do what was required”."

https://www.irishexaminer.com/sport/columnists/kieran-shannon/only-in-gaelic-football-is-smart-cynical-fouling-a-kpi-467089.html

And the sideline view... "Clever fouling helped too, as Kerry stopped Tipperary illegally 22 times in total, 11 in each half"

https://www.sportsjoe.ie/gaa/game-changer-kerry-more-cynical-and-clinical-than-tipperary-28713

or "Dublin can themselves point to Kerry cynicism in the closing stages of the 2017 league final when Anthony Maher pulled down Mick Fitzsimons about 50 metres out and from the resultant kick, Dean Rock struck an upright and Kerry hung on. Again it paid off for the aggressor"

Maybe look at black cards...

At the end of the day there were 2 umpires a helluva lot closer to it that anyone in the stand, or watching from their armchairs.

Referees all want to be getting the big games in Croke later this year and so will very much want to get the calls correct.

No matter what conjecture pundits etc come up with - they were analyzing the same TV clip we all saw.

We have no idea what happened beforehand and cannot say if Clifford was 100% innocent, or if he got involved in something he came out the wrong side of.

Of course MH could have sent on a man to get Clifford sent off, equally Clifford could have been acting the pr*ck - there is not enough evidence either way to say for sure.

Equally we don't know what happened to Harte, he may have deserved it, he may not.

For the sake of argument what position do you think Mickey would play him in?
