Clarke gave his gloves to my nephew at the end of the game today. Absolutely made the wee mans day. Fair play to Jamie. Class on and off the pitch

+1. Unlike his manager

McGeeney was very classy with everyone at the open morning a fortnight ago so will have to disagree. The incident you refer today was nothing at all

Open morning with the public has nothing to do with it. A manager is judged by he conducts himself during the game and McGeeney let himself down a bagful.  Blind-sided the Down player during the interval while he was running of the field. Could easily have put him out of the game. Shit-house tactics reminiscent of Pillar and we all know what those won in the long run.
The manís an embarrassment and the sooner heís out the door the better. Not the first time heís let the county down with his antics.

Didn't watch it, if you did you should be ashamed of yourselves.
Totally agree. Great to see we got what we deserved

Surely Bielsa must get sacked for blowing automatic promotion and failing to address such a mentally weak group of players who ballsed up at home in the playoffs?

Your post is, I assume, designed to get a reaction. Nevertheless I'll respond.

You are correct in one instance. The players are mentally weak and their collapse, following a catastrophic error, mirrored the collapse in the pivotal game against Wigan on Good Friday. Bielsa can only work with what he has and even the resources he had to work with were hugely undermined by a long injury list and a relatively small squad, the size of which was itself a product of Leeds' financial situation. 

Bielsa is a coaching genius. That explains why he managed to get so far with essentially the same group of players that had such a miserable season last year. Achieving promotion would have been the ultimate act of footballing alchemy. The reality is that mentally weak players will bottle big games - it is in their nature. That does not undermine Bielsa's genius - it only highlights the fact that he's not a magician.
Spot on there Rufus. I hope he stays.

The Come you black and Tans was satirising the backlash of Rod Stewart singing Grace on the BBC, Steve Coogan's a funny bollax
Rod claimed he was not allowed to sing that well known Celtic song on the BBC, how could there be a backlash?
Rod was in the GPO in 1916 and did time in Kilmainham jail afterwards.
Wounded in an attack on the Tans somewhere in Tipperary in 1921 if my memory serves me correctly

Teachers' pay is an absolute joke and they pay rise they're being offered is useless. I'm a Civil Servant and earn over £10K more than my wife who's a teacher. I'd say half the staff in Tesco get paid more

Id say you would be safer leaving a review on google or trustpilot rather than a thread on the gaa board

Or just post on the Muck Savages thread?
Was that really necessary?

Itís the same as adding sauce to it. In fact itís good to the stage where food is a means for us to consume sauce.

Is the insurance that rigidly worded that it only covers Gaelic sports?
