All over for Tiger now I wonder? Could be a 5 or 6 player playoff at this stage.

It's great to see Tiger back in the mix.

This debacle does not deflect well on our organisation..

The game should go ahead in PuC.

To those who say it can’t go ahead because of the rules: can we count at your enthusiastic support to change the rules at next Congress. If not, why not?

To those who say it shouldn’t go ahead: why not? If Ulster Rugby had declined to facilitate a similar fund raiser coordinated aroun a GAA star what would the reaction have been?
Its very unlikely for Ulster Rugby to be asked to host a major fundraiser for a GAA  star as multiple GAA facilities in Ulster could be used . The people here who should be coming under criticism are the FAI. When have they ever put a decent stadium in place? No it is always a case of someone else can bale us out.
Nobody is being asked to bail the FAI out. This isn't a FAI event. It's a charity fundraiser.

Of course the GAA shouldn't be forced into doing anything they don't want to, rules are rules and they have their rules and all that.
As rules go though it's a pretty stupid one imo, also I doubt it would take very much or have much opposition if they were to bend the rules a little this time and make an exception.
There are some who are turning this into a soccer v Gaa debate. This is not a soccer event it's a charity event.
One tool on the radio this morning start going in about the Queen and the Union Jack and kept calling soccer a Brit sport and how no Brit sport should be played in PuC.
We're all Irish men at the end of the day,so was Liam Miller.
Anyone with an ounce of common sense or decency would know the right thing for the GAA to do would be to bend the rules on this occasion.

Mignolet won't hang around to be back up. I'd say they'll keep Karius and sell Mignolet.
I see also Leicester are interested in taking Danny  Ward.

I still don't believe a word of it.

In other news DS15 says he wants to stay. There is a part of me that would love him to stay at the club and see him stay fit and break back into the team, on the other hand he has probably injured himself in the time it has taken me to write this post.
I think Sturridge is as good as anyone when he is fit and on form.

Liverpool have agreed a world record fee of £66.8million with Roma for goalkeeper Alisson. BOOM.
Until I see the Melwood lean I won't believe anything...

Went out on Sunday morning for a small run, first time in about 5 years running and i have to say it was tough. I had the sense to not go too far first time out but only done 2 1/2 miles and it was bad. My leg muscles after run didn't know what had hit them and still sore today, i ran slow enough (eight and a half minute miles) but could't believe how hard the leg muscles got it.

I played football all my life until 8 years ago and took up cycling 4 years ago, wouldn't think twice about cycling 100 miles so am fit enough but couldn't believe what a 2 1/2 mile jog done to me...
In fairness it works both ways. As far as running goes I'd consider myself fairly fit at the moment.
I went back cycling though a month or so ago and my first time out I nearly collapsed off the bike at the end. It's like anything though, keep doing it and it gets better.
First night out I think I only averaged 21kph, after a few weeks I was doing the same route at 28kph.
Me personally though I don't get the same buzz from cycling as I do from running.

Have you tried going out in a group - lots of cycling clubs around Dublin that cater for beginners/improvers
I haven't no. Maybe next year.
Marathon training just started so will be concentrating on that until end of October.
