Niall Morgan ahead of Beggan now. Best keeper in the country
Put the crack pipe down man, it’s really affecting your mental facilities.

GAA Discussion / Re: Your county’s toughest defeat to stomach
« on: August 18, 2018, 01:50:39 AM »
Although Sunday last was a tough one to take as a Monaghan fan I still don't think it ranked with the feeling after the Kerry defeat in the 2007 QF when we had them on the ropes but failed to land the final blow.  Also denied a late free in that game as far as I recall and that may have resulted in Kerry breaking forward for Tomás to score the winner late on.

The 2007 defeat was truly one we left behind
Not just a chance to beat Kerry in Championship football but if we had won that day I truly believe we had  the team to go that wee bit further that year
I left Croke Park that day really really down
Last Sunday , maybe because I’m in Sydney and watching it on GAAGO roaring at the TV on my own and as soon as it’s over I’m thinking “ f**k it’s 2:30am need to be up for work in the morning!” I moved on quite quickly and on Monday evening when I looked at the game again I could be a wee bit more clinical and analytical and say we just weren’t good enough early on
2007 we were there every step of the way, mentally immense, physically bullying Kerry and had some magnificent displays everywhere, Rory Woods RAN the show, we were on it that day , really really tuned in and firing and then just came up short.
Tough man, really really f**king hard to take.

Anyway Monaghan football is in a good place right now , maybe that and the distance I am away from the hype has meant I am able to see 2007 as a much more sickening blow than 2018

Trailer you muppets read what I said. I said it should be a black not that it was a black.

Clotheslining someone to stop a scoring chance is just as cynical as the things already in the list for a black, it can be more dangerous and as such should be added to the black card list.

Why can people not read what was said before making stupid posts arguing against what wasn't said??

You don’t really understand the way this place works do you :D

Purely for his performance in the 96 schmozzle Boots McGuinness deserves a mention.

David May would surely be in the mix here for professional manc
Jan Molby another professional scouser
Owen “mugsy “ Mulligan - professiona Tyroneite !


I don't think Monagahan can have much complaints on the ref. They got away with a few throw passes during the match. They lacked another forward to help McManus.

Tyrone were brilliant in midfield, even that lad number 20 that came on fielded a great ball towards the end.

Encyclopedic knowledge. Well done sur

I wonder will Malachy O’Rourke hang around for another year?

Subs bench starting to look thin with Meyler and McCarron out and Rory Brennan having to start. Mc Nulty back in the 26 which will be a boost for him I suppose. Be shit to be in a county panel and not get to tog on match day.

Just listened to Wooly’s podcast there saying Myler would be picking up Karl O’Connell  ::)
Read the board Wolly!

As a matter of interest what did Damian Comer do to deserve a second yellow ?

Excessive diving

I’m gonna miss the aul  bluffer , his podcast is good, not a great podcast, but a good podcast  ;D

What I have found interesting about Eamo is the conversion he has made from late 90’s early 00’s Sunday Indo journo/ Establishment lackey to now where he is firmly and trenchantly anti establishment and fully left of centre.

this whole thing is like watching two dwarfs fight - entertaining for the first 10 seconds then ye just feel sorry for them trying to get attention - just two irrelevant average ex county men looking to be heard - in a committee of some description in clerkins case ( Jarleth "scor" Burns Jr) and in Parkinsons case, and their laddish clickbait blog gives the loudest mouth a soapbox - unfortunately this seems to be the norm - Cavanagh, Brendan Deveney, Billy Joe Padden, Dessie Dolan, Gooch, David "as the man says" Brady - are all bland, irrelevant cliche ridden doses #rantover

Senan 'that's quality' Connell would be in there too. 

100% - I sometimes get the impression the Senan is trying to model his delivery and general TV persona on Jamie Redknapp, a dreadful though I know.

On a seperate note , I wonder do Senan, David , Dick and all the rest of the lads look at who is retiring every year and wonder if the new retiree is going to get a slice of his cake so to speak?

The talking head retired ex county man market had , I Thought, reached saturation point about 18 months ago and (thankfully ) natural attrition wasn’t keeping up with the numbers joining the ranks , it would be a interesting study to see the % of ex county men that never go near the media scene and then the % of others like Dick & Wolly who willingly prostitute themselves for a few coppers.
In Woolys case it’s a living , fair enough.
The Dick fella works away as a production manager or something along them lines and I’m reckoning the media thing is a vanity project or a means to an end - propbably told by his FF handlers to keep tapping away at the Aus TV there Dick & we’ll parachute you in as a Dail candidate in a few years , good lad .
Another appalling thought , Dick Clerkin T.D.

Clerkin doing well for a lad who was kjiwb to tout his own all Ireland final tickets a few years ago

Obviously a key moment in the Fianna Fáil candidate recruitment teams decision that Dick was the man for them in Monaghan .
A true demonstration of the embodiment of some key Fianna Fáil core principals right there.

Yet so many take the time  to  submit their protest, Is that called being "threadbaited"?
Some even surmising what must be Dick's ambitions in life.
'I heard the rumour that's doing the rounds from a source and if true then it sums up the man altogether´..... :D
'Based on a rumour, the man's a gobshíte'  ...  I think I heard that line on Father Ted.
The Ireland of the squinting windows lives on.

So we have one person in Camp Dick.
Anyone else ????

Wolly survives on the click bait - he works for whose entire purpose is ‘content ‘ creation , I do like his podcast but is lowest common denominator stuff really
Dick is firmly angling for an establishment role either in Gaa circles , media circles or if you believe some rumours flying round once upon a time a tilt at Leinster house as a FF candidate- this to me speaks volumes about Dick.
Dick throws out his musings on Twitter and rarely if ever engages with any normal people apart from the sad sacks that agree with him but if a media type reply’s Dick will engage at length, very transparent by Dicky
Wolly does engage with people and does act a bit of a p***k at times but at least he engages with all comers
I think secretly Dick might just envy Colm’s blue verified tick !!
