GAA Discussion / Re: split the dubs in 4
« on: Today at 04:09:13 PM »
GAA participation in Dublin is far below the national average. If the coaching and development money wasn't invested in Dublin, gaelic games would be on life support. They'd still have a good county team but not the seemingly indestructible side of the present. The unfortunate side effect of the relative increase in participation in Dublin GAA is the dominance of the Dubs in football (though I attribute a huge amount of this to Jim Gavin's management).

I think the split has to happen if we want to increase participation rates in the Dublin area. And I'm more concerned with that than the intercounty game.

I dont think there has been a participaion increase in Dublin. What has happened is talent is spotted and coached well in 10 superclubs. They tend to be in middle class areas which creates a virtuous circle

The Dubs train 4 times a day?

Getting bucketloads of money from outside sources?

Yep, along with a couple of other counties. GAA need to centrally control all county teams spending. All teams prepared within a similar budget.
so drag us down to your level?

Was talking to Cork man in pub after Munster final and was telling me the Dublin don't work'? Is this true ? Who pays their wages? How can us small fish compete with that? Their players get  free cars and meals too??
Free houses too. And diamond boots. Handjobs off Beyonce if they win as well.

The result is all that counts in a game like this. We need to beat them at home now to take advantage.

Anybody think Liam Brady is a waffler, who's just there because he's always been there?
Absolutely not.

Someone on Twitter is crying that he should be nailed for indecent exposure and common assault.
If he played any other sport he would. The IRFU have no stick here, so that is that.

I lol’d at the part “She alleges the hotel was negligent because the swing was "unsupervised" and there were no signs to instruct patrons how to use it safely.”

If she doesn’t know who to use a swing, its her parents she should be suing.
Well we know her father is an idiot.

He was no idiot, he is/was a devious hoor in his time with Dublin GAA.
Disagree. He may have thought he was or given that impression, but he is/was an idiot.

Name one positive from his time?

Can’t believe folk don’t want Mourinho. The man is box office and would be able to attract some decent players and the ten would be guaranteed. It wouldn’t be guaranteed under NL.

Agree!! Might even make them competitive in Europe again. . . Do Celtic think they’re Barcelona??

f**k me wasn’t that long ago Ronnie Deila was the manager FFS!

My thoughts exactly. I laughed when I read people saying he’s a terrible choice after saying a few weeks ago that they need a big name manager like Brendan. They don’t come much bigger than José and people still aren’t happy. Ffs he was one of the best managers in the world and I’d say he’ll do well with Celtic. Celtic fans are hard to please. What a statement of intent from the board but I don’t believe it. I can’t see José going to the Scottish league.

There is history! His Porto team were experts in cheating and time wasting. Long memories.
That said if we can entice a manager of his calibre it would be a big step beyond the rat in terms of stature.

Celtics fans have high standards, it's not good enough to win, they want to win playing the Celtic Way. The next manager appointment needs to be committed to a playing style that can align to the Celtic Way
 
Celtic, Liverpool, Man. Utd and Barca are all similar, the fans want the game played in a certain manner. Arsenal, Chelsea, Porto etc, want to win, and generally don't care how the team does it. Look at the 1:0 period for Arsenal, Porto's cheating, Chelsea's CL win with extremely defensive tactics.

The list of Celtic managers over the past 20 years, not exactly Pep Guardiola style managers and wouldn’t have exactly played the Celtic way. It’ll not happen anyway but he’s one of the biggest name managers in the world and I would welcome him with open arms to secure the 10 in a row. I wouldn’t be putting any big money on to win the 10 in a row at the minute and It’s lucky Rangers are so bad.

If you look at the past twenty or so years, the managers brought in initially had the team playing the traditional freeflowing passing game, to obvious various degrees of success. Some of these hires were risks, and didn't work out, some did
Brendan Rodgers- Free flowing football- great coach
Ronny Deila - Free flowing football- not so great coach
Neil Lennon - Pragmatic Football- aggressive style- Good coach
Tony Mowbray - Not there long enough
Gordon Strachan- Pragmatic Football- aggressive style- Good coach
Martin O'Neill - Pragmatic Football- aggressive style- Great coach
John Barnes- Free flowing football- not so great coach? Lack of investment
Jozef Venglos- Free flowing football- great coach, not there long enough
Wim Jansen - Free flowing football-  great coach, not there long enough
Tommy Burns - Free flowing football- great coach, not there long enough

Point of order.

Barnes was given huge backing. Scheidt and Berkovic were about £6m each.

Job done, easy win in second gear, means nothing.

Would love a chance to head over there with the Dubs. But still not convinced of the merits. Would last years US, British and Europen champions in the championship proper not be a better idea?

In the club championship you mean? British clubs already are. If you mean intercounty, how could they do any better than London or NY?

But why London and NY every year? Warwickshire are just as good. Let the international winners take their places.

Not sure where you're getting that from, Warwickshire play at junior level and they'd be annihilated by London.

Grand. So London win and get to play. If we have an international element,why not merit based. Before I get accused of the usual, the last 16 of next years FAI junior cup get into the intermediate cup, that last 16 into the senior.

Nobody else in England or Scotland play senior football at County level, London get a free run to the Connacht Championship and rightly so.

Jesus this is hard work.

Of course they dont play senior football. London have the only place. London cannot lose that place.

Or put another way, why 'rightly so'?

Are people on here that conservative that the idea of London and NY having to earn their way in causes this level of offense?.
