A win is a win. Back on top. Fulham probably deserved a point but Pogba goal the difference  8)

Cavani needs to be starting the next day vs Liverpool, and the game after that, and the game after that.....

Obviously not confirmed officially, but what Iíve heard is that Senior hurling S&C coach is former Olympian & Cork Coach Dave Matthews
Hurling Coaching team of Galways Francis Forde, Limerick/Corks Munster winning coach Donnach O Donnell & Kilkennyís All Ireland winning goalkeeper/Wexford coach PJ Ryan

Seriously impressive set up if all correct & true.


Step in the right direction if true.All very well established coaching experience and great expertise, Forde being highly regarded in Galway with coach of 2017 all Ireland winning team. Hopefully we have our best talent in there from across the county.
Best of luck to them! Itíll be interesting what Laois people in for selector roles aswell.

Itís Unitedís to lose now.

City ahead of United wonít be much in game Sunday week. Southampton in fairness to them defended fairly well tonight and should have ahead a 2nd goal near the end.
Wouldnít get too carried away with the loss.

Unlucky with Laois. Lost to a decent Meath side. They seemed to hold the ball much better than we did and got scores far easier. Seemed to force the ball too much long and on occasions passing to one Laois player with 3-4 Meath players. Hopefully this bunch will improve with 20s and add few to senior ranks in few years. That referee wasnít hectic either Meath seemed to barge charging into Laois players and win frees!

Anyone watching the darts, 66 year old Paul Lim came from 2 sets down to win 3-2, its open this year as to who will win, a wee wager on the ever popular Gerwin Price

Wouldnít be a darts person but watched it there. Seemed to be an age they were both on the double in the last set. Oldest winner and first person to have a 9 darter. Some going for 66 years of age!

I see Colm restaurant closed in Portlaoise. Did daddy fund that as well as paying for his for 4 colleges in 4 years.  Didn't he get a few bob playing for a dublin club?

I believe itís the partnerís restaurant not Woolys. And itís closed a long time. Joys of having kids I imagine. Are you bitter or something reillycavan?

Agreed. Eddieís after landing on his feet with Cuala job so heíll be alright. Still not convinced it was a deliberate throwing under the bus from Woolie.

Not a fan of how he threw Eddie under a bus

If Galway had put out their minor team last night they would have beaten us

We are doing all our juvenile players a disservice sending them out with little or no preparation to face underage powerhouses like galway.

We are light years behind the top 10 hurling counties at underage level in just physical development and conditioning alone never mind any other facet of the game

We had lads going down with cramp at the 50 minute mark,which tells its own tale.

Iím not having a pop at any of the players,Iíd know a good few of them lads and they would die for their county.

We are failing them

Have to agree with above.

Granted it is an excellent Galway team who will be probable favourites for U20 All Ireland but they have a conveyer belt of talent for years and have the physically to match as well as skill. You can have all the skill you want but if you canít win your own ball weíre going nowhere. Our skill set needs to be much better as well.
Galway have recruited Lukasz Kirszenstein as Head of Athletic Development for Hurling in Galway for past 3 years. Highly regarded in Strength and Conditioning in Ireland and paying dividends and Galway will be back in a year or 2 with another senior All Ireland.

I hope thereís some form of cohesion from Cheddar with 20s and Senior can be integrated better. A head of Athletic Development in the county might at least put a plan in place to plug a gap. Otherwise weíll keep sending lambs to the slaughterhouse every year and have the same discussion next year.

Any thoughts on the U20's tonight?

Have we any chance against them?

\it'd on the TG4 youtube channel.

Galway have few minor all Ireland winners and good club players from
St Thomas. Will be tough ask. Be interesting to see physicality differences between Laois and Galway later. Hopefully Laois give a good account of themselves.
Galway by 10+ points.

Ole will come out with his usual bullshit now. Great effort, almost finished the fightback. They were as good as qualified after the first two matchdays and have fucked it in the bin completely. The third Leipzig was a real indictment of everything wrong with United at the minute. Pogba careless on the ball lost it initially and then Maguire and de Gea both expected each other to take care of it before Kluivert finished it.

The first United goal tonight was an absolutely ridiculous penalty that I don't even think Greenwood expected and how VAR didn't rule out the second I don't know. If that almost OG had gone in at the end it would have been an absolute travesty. United fans really shouldn't have to accept this nonsense.

Penalty was questionable alright. Started too slow and chasing the game. Game in Turkey came back to haunt them but too inconsistent over 6 games and deserved to be knocked out. Give Henderson starting role in Europa league. Criminal from De Gea and Maguire.

Announced last night as the name put forward to the county board meeting so itís more less a done deal. Back room not as clear cut it seems. Niall Corcoran and Tommy Fitz not involved
Youíd imagine Cheddar will want a fresh back room team to have it own stance on it. Best wishes to Tommy and Niall wherever they go.

Niall Corcoran still a GDA with Kilmacud Crokes so I imagine thereís something stopping working for a rival club.
Welcome news this morning re: Cheddar. Credit to Eamon Jackman and committee for getting appointment confirmed quickly.

Malteasers, galaxy and Snickers always first to go, in that order. Always bounty bars left over in box not sure what others think   ::)
