I see Grimley doesn't trust his players enough to let them speak to the press. Are they feeling a wee bit intimidated perhaps.

A repeat of 94 would be nice.

Can we get Tommy Dowd back.

That piece of skill by Shane Walsh controlling the ball from the mishit 45 was sheer brilliant.

That was class alright.

Bookies have Armagh as slight favourites. It's an unusual situation where it's really hard to gauge how good either team really are. We've seen both bad and good from both this year. Hopefully we'll get a clearer picture after this for Meath.

you're probably right there Jinxy , but that said we're good enough to be in the top eight in the country with is group of players if they can improve their s&c. If they can get Meath consistently well placed in div 1 then they will have achieved something important from the county going forward though they might not get much silverware for it.

Jesus, O'Neill did some fat lad pick on you in school.  :D

I live in England but thankfully im not obese. Approaching my mid thirties and still have 34 inch waistline but I can already see myself letting it all slide. In my old job where I had been working since I was 25 I was within walking distance from the office, then I moved further away, so I cycled.

But now my new job is an hours drive away. And as Im higher up the career ladder, I have more spending power but less free time as overtime is the norm, often getting up in darkness and getting home at night especially if there is a deadline looming. working 20 hours straight over several days isn't unusual for big jobs or important clients. On top of that there is more stress. When you are that knackered and stuck for time it's a struggle to prepare healthy food. It doesn't help that I pass 5 McDonalds on the way to work (there are also KFC + Burger Kings too).

I'm trying to fit a 30 minute jog in here and there as much as I can but my body just cries out for more sleep. I can really understand how you can let it slip once you start getting a more demanding job which usually goes hand in hand with a more demanding home life (kids, DIY, etc) so when you do ever get a moment the temptation is to reward yourself for your hard efforts with a few pints and a gourmet burger in Wetherspoons.

I have the Meath GAA annual from 2003, Stephen Bray is on the cover and only a gossun.

I got to sit down and watch the Dublin game in full now today. To me, the fitness levels and strength and conditioning are worlds apart but for footballing and skills wise I don't think there is that much difference. When you are that much quicker than your opponent it's easier to find room and therefore less pressure on your shooting.

That said you would wonder why we tried going toe to toe with Dublin in the first half. I thought Mick would have had a more nuanced approach than that. I would have had the heavyweights like Burke on from the start kept plenty of men in our own half with O'Rourke and Bray as a two man forward line. With the extra bodies back there should be less space and therefore less running and less energy spent. All going well, there should be a tight game at the half, then bring in the quicker lads in the second half when it suits Meath to open up and attack.

Instead we had Reilly, O'Rourke and Carroll all knackered by half time. If we can close that gap in terms of fitness/S&C I think we'll not be far off. Easier said than done though. Trevor Giles or whoever is the fitness coach has his work cut out for him.

Interesting to see Joe, Cian Ward and Queeney are tearing things up in the Meath championship this year.

I can imagine there might be a reluctance to go back that way but their experience on the bench wouldn't hurt. I don't think Joey Wallace is ready yet nor McMahon.

Cheers for the tip Canalman but I've done it all myself already.

It's the bay window seat now.

Right so, painting and blind fitting all done. Thanks for the tips.

For my next trick I aim to convert my bay window into a window seat. At the moment it's all UPVC stuff. I'd like to take that out and replace it with a flat piece of hard wood. I might just take the cheap option of cladding the UPVC with some wood. I'll probably need to reinforce the supports under the window as it does look like it would take the weight of a person for long. I'd rather not replace the whole window frame either, which is white UPVC.

Anyone done something similar?

The best way forward is a mix of wind, tidal, solar (where viable) and micro nuclear generation.

I remember before 2011 people often said to me, I hope Dublin won't win an All Ireland as they probably won't shut up about it. Funnily enough it's been rather muted from the capital. It's just the rest of the country won't f**king shut up about Dublin winning.

Maybe Jerry Kiernan is training Dublin now?

Dublin  haven't received a black card this year because they have developed new methods of circumventing the rules.

The moon landings were fake.

9/11 was an inside job.

Joe Dolans not dead!

Enda Kenny is a mannequin controlled by aliens!
