General discussion / Anyone from Tipp who want to help
« on: August 15, 2018, 04:12:03 PM »
Hi lads and ladies
I bought a car last July in the UK and brought it to the North but now I want to import it into the South.
I live in Dublin but wondered could I register it in Tipperary as I like the new T number plate

Would I need to use someone who lives there to register it for me or can I use their address?
Do they need a utility bill etc for that?

181 T SAM would be nice though.  ;)

I've not had time to read too much of this thread but here's my quick thoughts on yesterday

I was sitting in the middle of the lower Hogan and it was 95% Monaghan and very loud and foul mouthed around me. The amount of times I heard the phrase ye cheating Tyrone tr**p used was despicable. One "lady" behind me had a 4 year old on her knee and the language out of her was unreal, so much so I turned to her at one point and said can you try to tone it down a bit for your kids sake. That's awful language and she told me its not her F-ing daughter and to turn around and F**K off. I did.

I had Scooby Doo with me and that got loads of laughs and craic and some good photos including one of him sitting behind the TV Camera.

I thought Monaghan got a harder time with the ref than we did but then again my thoughts could be influenced by the very vociferous fans around me. Had I been with Tyrone fans I made have felt the other way.

It certainly looked like SOME of the Monaghan players were playing for frees and the one right at the end was never a free and I think you could tell the ref had noticed that Hughes was taken on JUST to win frees and cause panic.

Despite being called all sorts yesterday as I was totally outnumbered in our section, I did feel for the Monaghan fans. You could see that they and their players had put a HUGE amount of effort into the whole performance and they must wonder what the hell it takes to beat Tyrone in Croker. I think some would say a draw would have been a fair result but I'd say the ref didn't want to play extra time anyway.
I saw loads of fans crying after the game but in fairness a good few shook my hand on the way out (NOT THE ONES around me)
Did you notice one of the Monaghan players rejected a hand shake from McKernan I think it was.

One last point, I think when an underdog like Monaghan play a team like Tyrone for the chance to get to their first AI final for the first time in years, it will always influence the neutrals in how they view the game and how certain decisions dont go the way you would wanna see. I spoke with a Fermanagh fan today and she said totally disgusted with the whole game yesterday. Thought Tyrone were terrible rough and dirty and diving and the ref rode Monaghan time and time again. She's usually sound but I could just tell she wanted Tyrone OUT and was angry that the marginal calls went Tyrones way not the underdog. She thought 3 mins was a total travesty despite what they said on TSG last night

Having lived in Dublin for 22 years now and have 4 kids (One still a red hander) I have been looking forward to this final since I moved here. There is already some craic in work and I think I'll put up a few more flags and posers around my desk. Scooby Doo-her is already sitting up in his red Rockwell shirt

Can't believe the shite being talked any more or the credit we give these wums.
Of course smaller counties who have suffered at our hands for years will despise us and let's face it Tyrone and usually AN Other have been getting to AI quarters now pretty regularly for the past 17 years.

Can we not just ignore their biased crap and talk about the game. I was out last night in D7 area with my Tyrone jersey on and the banter was great. People from various counties approached me and gave me their opinions. Most neutrals thought we would win on Sunday and maybe even give the Dubs a fair aul scare in the final.
I was a lot more cautious about Monaghan.
One Monaghan lad said he was very confident and that this team no longer fear Tyrone and are more used to big days in Croker now than ever before.
I said usually at this stage most teams are physically at the same level and it comes down to hunger and how willing you are to fight for it.
My concern is that if it is a tight game will our free taking be our downfall again.
How many times in the last 5 years has wides or short shots cost us defeats against Mayo or Kerry.
I think Monaghan by 2.

It's great to see Tyrone give these poor Derry, Armagh and other sad b'tards from counties who can't get anywhere these days like Meath, something to cheer for and have a bit of interest in this time of year.
Of  course the neutral will be hoping for plucky wee Monaghan, with such a small population, to exact revenge for McManus in Brolly eyes.
I can see him now saying how good always overpowes evil in the end.

Must agree with some posters views yesterday how Joanne cantwell did a much better job that yes man Lybster regarding not letting Brolly and Co get away with inaccurate statements. She's sharp and pulls them up when they contradict themselves.

Weird season where you could make it to an AI final having already lost twice, once to the team in the Semi and once to the time in the AI final.
Even weirder that no sign of Kerry or Mayo who we have struggled to beat for 10 years.
The Monaghan manager, no doubt will be drawing comparisons with meetings with Tyrone in Croker from previous years and how they need to learn from that and overcome that mental block.
I wonder will he also talk about 2001 when Derry came back to beat Tyrone having beaten them earlier that year.

I wonder will Micky Harte retire after this match
I wonder.
Just reading backwards through these posts yesterday and it's gas the overall theme is so negative and grumpy old man syndrome. Never happy with anything.
Granted a lot of the posts are from "neutrals" or fans who couldn't get to the match for one reason or another but the whinging and giving out so reminds me of listening to aul lads in their 70s constantly giving out about the modern way things are done and how it was so different in their day.
I'm not that shocked at the Derry wans or other counties who have been shite for years but the older Armagh fans should remember what it's like when you're in the white heat of a highly competitive match where winner takes all.
Remember Tyrone hadn't won here for 45 years.
Yet again at stages they appeared to have to deal with a very challenging and inconsistent referee and then they gave away a very soft goal after losing a talented defender for an inoccuous tackle. That's a lot of shit to overcome in a very hostile environment so as you sit in your comfy sofa, having not been at an actual live game for years perhaps, maybe you should try to think back what the passion and mood was like in such circumstances when this was do or die.

Having watched it in O'Neills in Oxford yesterday, my 4 kids said to be after the game, we've never seen shouting at the TV so much before dad. The youngest still supports Tyrone (not Dublin yet) and we were all getting high fives and hugs all around the pub. The kids all loved the passion and excitement and my eldest said, you don't get that at boring Dubs games dad.
I would love it to be a Tyrone v Dublin final just for the craic in our house and the banter with MDMA their cousin.

Anyone know where I can watch the Sunday game again from last night or the full game in YouTube or anywhere.
Do Rte put the whole game on the player?
Great win and 1973 was a great year.  ;)

Norf, don't be worrying about what people think of Cathal.
I noticed it last year too that loads of fans are just wanting him to fail so they can say they're first impression on him was right

He has 12 point this year all from play and has improved hugely on last year. He was unlucky with that ball through to him as he had to slow down for it to come into his hands and Mannion did very well to make such a clean tackle.

Cathal seems to believe in himself which is the main thing and I don't think its by chance he's started every game this year.

Fair dinkum J70 and good summary there.

I'm fair scunnered that I can't be there as its only down the road from where I come from but I've never saw Tyrone win there so maybe it's good I cant make it. I'll be watching it in O'Neills in Oxford with my kids. I must pack their Tyrone shirts and not their Dubs wans.

I see the weather is to be hot but with showers on Sunday. It would be a pity of the rain made it into a lottery game. High balls into the FF line could cause havoc.

Hi lads
Could someone PM me who would know much about your club51 supporters club
Just looking for some info on how it was set up and what sort of things ye do.

You're not the worst J70 but you always make me laugh when you always go for the cute hoorism approach.
Ye very rarely say you think they will win and again say you're in bonus territory. So let me ask you do you think ye will win and if so why? Where can you see the game being lost and won?

Re the other "whinging stuff" you mentioned then I know you don't get back for many games these days but my point was that Ballybofey has become quite fortress for ye since yer second coming with McGuinness.
I don't have you been to any of the Tyrone games there over the past 5 years or so but all Im saying is the atmosphere is toxic and there is a lot of animosity built up now between the teams.

"Look it"  :o, we know what other counties think of Tyrone and the media play on that to some extent but I hope RH Santa is correct that it will be a very controlled aggression on Sunday with Mickey already very conscious of the massive frees conceded we have this year of 26% as per today's Gaelic Life. Monaghan are top with 41% and Donegal 18th with 29%. Some would argue that's biased refs and some would say its the way we tackle or get so many men around the man on the ball.
Interestingly they also have a table on the best attacking teams with Dubs No 1 avg score 21.77 and Tyrone second on 19.43. Donegal are 4th on 18.85.

I think I have underestimated the importance of this match when it first came out, as in this is the first time a match between two neighbours of similar styles and levels will meet in a home venue in August for a place in the AI semifinal. That in itself is huge, when you think what the first round Ulster games are like.

As we know Tyrone hammered Donegal last year with both McBrearty and Murphy on but was that just a once off? Did they have a bad day at the office? Will that motivate them more for this Sunday as revenge this time means proving that they are indeed worthy of being called Ulster champions and that they were not just handed an easy Ulster, like we were last year.

I think Tyrone will take a lot of positives from the way they played v Dublin and will give them great confidence that they are not that far away from the top table. My biggest concern is that in previous years, we have had several chances to take crucial scores and we've missed them or not gotten a penalty etc.
We need to stop those happening so often. I would not be at all surprised to see Mickey throw Lee Brennan in from the start as it could cause a bit of panic and create more room for Richie.

A lot of people seem to be tipping Tyrone all week despite the home advantage and that will motivate Donegal even more. Personally I think its going to be one hell of a tight game with whoever getting the first goal then going on to win it as the other team will then have to chase the game and so leave more holes behind themselves.

Many don't like bringing it up but I think if you're gonna bring up some nit wit spitting at a player like that then you have to bring up Cassidy's behaviour towards Peter Harte re Michaela. Some people just refuse to believe the story but I have heard several players say it is true.

Lets face it folks, Donegal were in Tyrone's shade for a long long time and even though they won an AI before we did, for years they felt we were the big guns in Ulster or at least the team to beat.
Then McGuinness came along and changed the mindset of the Donegal player first and then the fans.
They knew they had just as good if not better footballers than Tyrone and Armagh and so he instilled that wee bit of belief and harder edge that for too long they lacked.
Players like the 2 McGee brothers epitomized what the new "hardened"  Donegal team were like.
They stunned both Kerry and Cork in 2012 as both thought they knew what was coming but neither could stop it.

So if you are a "neutral" arm chair fan who hasn't been to any Donegal games in the last few years I think you might still think all Donegal fans and players will welcome you in with a wee cuppa tae and a friendly chat but the truth is far from that. For a good few years there Donegal were top dogs over Tyrone at least.

Some would say McQuillan will be out of his depth on Sunday trying to keep the lid on this game. He tends to easily influenced by the home support as we often see in Croker.

Will Mickey be naming the team tonight? I am expecting a surprise from him. Just to spice it up.

Conor McManus and Dean Rock  ;D

Can anyone here share with the rest of us the atmosphere at the Tyrone v Donegal games the last 4 or 5 years down in Ballybofey. I only made it to one and some of the stuff going on was pathetic. Grown men and women in their 50s and 60s and above shouting all sorts of stuff.

Anyway, I believe there are a HUGE number of Tyrone fans going to go down to the town anyway in buses just for the craic and to bring a big of colour to the dreary place like the Dubs did to Omagh.

Jinxy WTF, click on your profile and read previous posts and you'll probably shock yourself how often you have opinions on Tyrone threads as you don't have a team to follow yourself.

Sorry trueblue, you're right. Continue lads.

If you were ever at a Donegal home game in the last few years you'd see how good of people they are.
The bile that comes from SOME of their mouths, even from women and men over a certain vintage is a disgrace.

But then again you would never experience that because ye just roll over and let them tickle your fat tummys like ye do with every other team now.
Ahh well. If it still brings ye some entertainment from afar then I don't begrudge you that.
Will ye have a yellow and green flag to wave or will you have the Derry shirt on watching it on Premier sports?

Anyway folks, back to the game.
Do you think Rory B will be in the team before McGeary.
It was good to see Loughran getting a bit of a run out this year. I see Skeet is the 3rd top scorer this year after Mansy and Roxy.

I do enjoy these random comments from lads who don't really have a team to support any more.
It does brighten up my day now and again to see lads like this and Jinxy trawling through threads looking for something to give out about.

Are yis supporting Donegal this weekend then lads?

I would not be surprised to see Mickey throw a curve ball this week when naming the team.
