Seen Monaghan twice now. Once Live and Once on TV. They are motoring in a high gear at the moment. They are also playing on the edge. In Castlebar with their intensity they sorta caught everyone on the Hop including the Ref. They had a game plan, got into the Mayo heads and controlled the game including the referee who they read like a book. They did the same with Kerry yesterday. Sheehan took the bate.
The ref didn't allow COC to ref the game that night - fair play to him for that.



I thought O'Connor played the ref like a fiddle in the game with Monaghan, how many frees did O'Connor manage to get moved into scoring range for nothing? He must have got three or four in that manner and was lucky to avoid a red late on.

Impressive from Donegal given the big changeover since last year.

Young McGee had a great game and thought Gallagher was good in defence.

An absolute jokeshop.

Every year it's the same story with Omagh, the pitch cannot cope with rain at all.

Why on earth have the County Board not made contingencies for this, Fermanagh and Monaghan are down in Cork and Kerry respectively this week so they should have had the foresight to have these places ready in case there was a need to switch this.

Omagh has a constant problem with flooding, is it not possible to organise some sort of shelter or covers on the playing surface when such inclement weather is forecast.

Inequality of wealth and the co-relationship to success. Where have we discussed this before? I'm just amused that it took the media so long to get on board when we've been beating this drum, well apart from those that seem to think it's all about natural talent and special players, for the best part of 5 years.

The Tyrone players have a point but also their CB have a point, this isn't a Tyrone problem this is a GAA problem, created by themselves. It nearly killed Kildare GAA trying to keep up, good to see common sense in Tyrone, it will probably cost Tyrone an AI over the next 5 years though.

You're dead right Dinny - the huge British tax payer funded grants to the Ulster council which coincided with the Armagh & Tyrone wins can't have been a coincidence?

Then again Kildare had the most expensive training setup in the country along with the most expensive management team. Plus a centre of excellent. At a time when Dublin were training on a cow field in Inisfails - yet Kildare couldn't win a raffle or hit a barn door with a football from 20 meters. Go figure.

What "grants" did these counties get? Genuinely looking forward to your reply

He won't be able to answer you that.

He just puts it out there without any knowledge, in the hope that it will somehow validate the money Dublin's mega grants.

Funny that, as Down won three All Irelands in the 1960s,when discrimination was rife

Funny that Down weren't really that active in the troubles.

How did the two Kerry lads get their bans lifted and not the two Mayo lads?

Walsh is still banned; Crowley got his lifted.

Mayo were always likely to get the heavier punishment as they are the ones who appealed Parsons red initially. Authorities don't like that sort of carry-on.

Walsh was named to start.

Kerry (NFL Div 1 v Monaghan): Brendan Kealy; Shane Enright, Mark Griffin, Killian Young; Tadhg Morley, Peter Crowley, Ronan Shanahan; David Moran, Jack Barry; Jonathan Lyne, Paul Murphy, Donnchadh Walsh; Jack Savage, Paul Geaney, James O'Donoghue.

Of course you will be unable to substantiate that.

I remember at one stage last year, it was reported on this board that a bus was taking students from Belfast up and down to Garvaghey for Tyrone senior men & ladies training. The bus took them back to Belfast the same night but the ladies had to wait on the bus while the lads went in and got their dinner after training. I don't remember such an outrage.

Our association and players have lost the run of themselves completely.

Ladies football is played in front of a handful of people.

It requires nowhere near the levels of commitment and dedication of senior intercounty football.

I wonder do ladies teams at club level get as well looked after as their male counterparts. Highly unlikely.

Fermanagh 750/1                                                      
Waterford 1000/1                                                      
Wicklow 1000/1

Jaysis, Meath must be awful shite if they haven't even been given odds!

Ehhhh, yeah.

What the odds do show of course is the utter lunacy of the provincial system. Westmeath are roughly at a similar level to Roscommon I think it's fair to assume. Westmeath have already beaten Meath but yet are more than 3 times less likely than Ros (who haven't played a game yet) to win the All-Ireland. Obviously neither are going to win the All-Ireland, but it's just something that jumped out at me.

Obviously.

Whatever about senior, envenitability is not something that exsists at underage, thankfully.

Do you mean inevitability?

Wow!!

1. Not a panel statement , wonder what his teammates and harte will feel about it?
2. Jordan is finished. No way back from this for her. Relations with club tyrone will be graded
Reflects poorly on the county, the true cost of garvaghy ? Lots to ponder

Tyrone spent £412,000 on County Teams last year. You're saying that she's finished because she suggested they contribute just £15 towards all of the kit, physio, food etc. that they receive?

Doesn't seem to happen in other counties who spend about triple what Tyrone spend on their teams.

I would almost guarantee that she didn't ask them to pay any money. Seems suspicious that an anonymous Tyrone player would send an email to a Dublin based radio station. I hadn't heard of Newstalk before this so it's seems odd that a Tyrone player would contact them when trying to spread this message.

You think it's fake news?

What's the view on Ronan McHugh, lads?

Is he simply there to make up the numbers or is he generally capable of pushing the likes of Bradley, O'Neill and McCurry? He seemed to score fairly well during the pre season games.
