Their big "final" at the end of the series is against Mayo.

The Dublin trashing undermined everything the coaches and players did throughout the series. It made them look absolutely useless which was unfair to those involved.
Then the show is flawed. Not fair to exoect a team to throw a game for ratings

I for one wouldnt be happy at his exit from rte broadcasting.  I certainly dont always agree with what he says and of course he goes to far on occasion, but you know what, I'm drawn to hear his ramblings. I get the Gaelic Life most weeks and the first article i want to read is his.  You cant say that about many other pundits.

Anyway, i'm sure he will land on his feet.

It’s the very last thing I read in it.

I’ll be able to enjoy the replay now knowing he’ll be nowhere to be seen.

His indo output is divisive, vindictive and mean spirited. If you aren't a 6 county culchie, you aren't really Irish. A load of me bollix.

Curtis and Hogan played themselves out of the team. Cullen was solid. Byrne was the clear standout, but where does he play in a McCarthy XI?

Hogan got zero service. Couldn't discount him based on that.
Im discounting him based on never being in the right place for a service

Big Mick says Hourihane is to play left back tonight? Is he taking the piss?
Stevens is suspended for tbe next game, Ward has retired, Wilson is nowhere. Cunningham is the only left back in the mix. Its a free experiment

I understand that, and i believe Doherty is injured too so no chance of that.  I still dont like it though.  Surely there is a natural left back somewhere who can be tried in that position and maybe less of the square peg in round hole scenario. It's still not quite as bad as playing Christie in the middle.

Im sure there is. Just not in this 23.

I think in general people are just bored of the contrarian pundits. Dunphy started it, gone. Hook perfected it, gone. Fingers crossed Brolly goes the same way.

Often wondered why Kimmage, Walsh or some other Journalist didn't do after Farah the way they went after Armstrong.
Because Armstrong corrupted a team. Take drugs or lose your job and livelihood. Team doctors had to assist or slso move on.

Apparently Joe has been dropped by RTÉ for the AI final replay live programme.

Can’t imagine that he will take too kindly to this apparent snub. Could this be the start of the phasing out process.

Great news and hopefully he's dropped long term. I see he had to apologise to David Gough and had to admit he was wrong on his view on the Kerry penalty and Cooper sending off.  A humbling experience all round for him.

For someone who has his name as Captain Obvious, i can only presume its a joke, because you are failing to see the obvious here, that its a mistake brolly was dropped.
Why is it a mistake?

If the RoI soccer team was a GAA county, which one would it be ?
Maybe Antrim   ?

Kilkenny.

Footballers.

Bollocks.

Entertainment

Wise

You're being very generous. They're an absolutely awful team run by an organisation that would rival an African country for open corruption.
But sticking to football their best player plays for Everton so that means they're very, very bad.
Are you that confident the GAA would escape unscathed from the same sort of reviews the FAI are suffering?

Due to the short term nature of the appointment McCarthy is doing a short term job. Reliable players, hard to beat, but zero flair. Compare and contrast with the U21s, playing samba football.

We are producing players, its just when they get to England the attacking flair is beaten out of them

Ffs where was the urgency after levelling? Get up off your arse and get back for the kick off and try and win the feckin’ thing. Over a minute wasted and another with McGoldrick subbed. All smiles on the bench with a draw. f**k sake. Big chance missed.
Wouldn't say it was a big chance missed, the Swiss were by far the better team tonight. Some great defending from Ireland tonight and fair play to them for getting back into it but they were blessed to get a point from that game imo.

Better team doesn’t always win. 5 minutes left, have momentum, crowd behind you, great opportunity to nick a winner, and they piss about wasting time. Lump it up, nothing to lose. You need to win your home games, as I doubt Ireland will get the win out there.

Except the ball, and they were hitting on the counter at that stage.

Lump it up ffs. Its international football.

1. 17 years ago and losing in injury time

2. 20 mins to go, targetted long ball for a runner in space as Germany held too high a line.

It would have been bonkers to start launching high balls at 1 - 1 the way they were set up.

Ireland played Germany off the park in 02, and creating little. One long ball, they score.

If anything, lumping it in would have put the Swiss under pressure. Ireland mightn’t have won the ball, but the Swiss has to at least deal with it.

Did you watch the game? The swiss 'dealt with it' far too well to give them the ball deliberately. I'm not arguing against the odd direct ball (see 02...) but just blootering it up the pitch as a tactic when the draw was got is madness. Especially with one man up top.
