Thats ridiculous
you have to wonder when is the last time some poster saw A o Sé play .
there maybe as good but there is no better player in the country . big strong skilful mobile great had massive engine and a great football brain . what's not to like
I would have him Midfield every match

It's obviously a game of opinions but to say there is no better player in the country....I'd have to disagree...he's not even the best player on the Mayo team (Keegan)

Big Murphy could also give him a masterclass if it's big man v big man yr after

Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

Yesterday was as depressing a match as I've seen in a long, long while.

Tyrone had no bite, no energy, not much of a plan and at no stage did they look like they could turn the game around.

Much as I believe the Team will get better as the ground dries out and the fitness program gets them ready for May / June I still believe we are miles off Dublin - and that's really the only benchmark we should be looking at.

Bar MD and NM, the rest of he team were average at best.

Playing Harte at FF is a waste. He doesn't seem to know how to play there (can't blame him for that) and is much more effective driving from deep. It's a red herring discussing his size - Andy Moran is no bigger, but leads the line really well for Mayo.

One of the Championship MF spots will be occupied by Colm Cav. I don't see anyone else staking a claim yet - not Grugan, Kennedy or McClure, so we will prob end up with Mattie D back in there.

I disagree we don't have man markers - I think Hampsey and McKernan are both capable of doing a 1-on-1 job. I don't think we have enough of them though.

Frees - Jesus wept. McCurry is not the answer. He is a streaky player - given space and time he looks the real deal - when he's tightly marked he's gone from the game. Why Brenna was not hitting the 40m and in frees is a mystery.

Basic skills were missing yesterday - Mayo defence looked like world beaters, but so would anyone is you try to play long ball in to 1 player surrounded by 3 defenders. Worse still when you kick the ball straight to the Mayo defence.

Are the players better than the system or is Harte rigidly adopting a system designed to get the best out of them - that's the million dollar question.

Anyway - well done Mayo and here's to another relegation battle - as Enda McGinley (I think) pointed out on the radio yesterday - even the great noughties Tyrone team got relegated....

Tyrone were brutal , made our bucks look mighty. Cavan will bring us back to reality next week .

Is there ever going to be protection for Aido?

Aidan O'Shea doesn't deserve protection. Let himself down badly again today

What happened??

The usual non stop slabbering to the ref / linesman / whoever he’s near with sneaky elbows being thrown when no one is watching.

Swan dive and rolling about to get a black card card issued when he was at fault.

Shame. His and Keegans  antics make Mayo awful hard to like.

Too early to say this is a must win for Tyrone?

Lose first 2 in a row and your whole focus is then placed on battling to avoid relegation.

they looked good in McKenna Cup.

Generous enough there trailer...

They looked good in patches and poor in others.

Mostly they were just ok.

Unbelievable....the arrogance.
A journalist asks the question which is part of the leave argument and no matter how stupid the question is he asks it sounding as if he means it. The answer just further exposed the stupidity of the question.  Do you think Humphrys actually believes that Ireland should dump the EU and throw in their lot with the UK?.
 But yeah in general the condescending and hectoring method of interviewing is repetitive and tiresome however it's not just confined to the BBC.

Sorry....when has Ireland joining the UK ever been part of the leave argument?

Even the North was roundly ignored until the British were told by the EU that it was actually a significant issue.

As for Humpries..he’s a well known Brexiteer....did he not refer to a people’s vote as ‘ludicrous’...called the EU ’arrogant’, asked the Swedish ambassador if he would end up speaking German, said on air “We are becoming a colony... what we’re doing is kow-towing to Brussels even before they’ve made any demands... we’re giving away everything,”.....and played loose in this interview with the facts facts about the Brexit vote .....real impartial....so yeah...on balance my opinion is that he really does believe the tripe he was coming out with.
There's some truth in what you write, but probably unlike yourself I listen to R4 quite a bit and don't have to scoop random quotes from the internet to support an opinion. I also know someone who worked on the today team at R4 for years and reports that he is an obsessive domineering perfectionist, a pain in the ass to the nth degree. I haven't noticed a fawning tone from him towards brexiteers. I haven't known Humphrys to be anything but a rude, hectoring, condescending cxnt when interviewing anybody involved in politics and he's quite liable to spout a nonsense insulting question.
 All quite different from his scripted journalism,  a current affairs commentary which is reasonably intelligent and impartial.  So no, I very much doubt he really believes Ireland could consider leaving the EU to throw in their lot with the UK in order to cement North South future relationship.

Didn’t know listening to R4 ‘quite a bit’ qualified anyone to be a towering intellectual, you live and learn.

Us mortals will just have to keep on making do with using examples to support the point being made. 

Some amount of hubris.

Has Arlene ever made it through a tv soundbite without smirking?

Is it a facial tick?

Are Hampsey and Burns injured?

Hampsey on the way back from injury,

Don't think Burns played last time out for UUJ in the Sig, so guessing he's not 100% either

As I've said before  - Armagh now  have their best panel since the glory days and if McGeeney fails to get somehting out of them this year you would have to question the wisdom of renewing his contract. Thier front 6 is right up there with Kerry/ Tyrone / Monaghan / Mayo (just maybe not Dublin)

Tackling is thier major downfall. Far too many fouls given away with poor technique and playing the man not the ball.

That and acting the hard men when thery don't need to.

All joking aside, what constitutes a good season for Armagh this year? A decent string of results in the league? An ulster final appearance? Super 8 appearance?

And vice versa what do the Tyrone fans think is a good year for them? All Ireland potentially after last year?

I think this is the strongest panel Armagh have had since the glory years - especially among the forwards.

I would expect them to beat Down and Cavan, but not Monaghan. Definitely a big scalp in them.

For Tyrone a good year would be more adventurous football, an AISF appearance and beating either Kerry or Dublin.

I'd be super confident of Armagh wining the McKenna final this weekend
