GAA Discussion / Re: Too many for one Team
« on: Today at 09:13:26 AM »
Hi, back again! As I was saying earlier we have a panel of 27 for 13 a side under 12 Girls. 8 Girls play every minute of every game that leaves 5 places for up to usually 15 Girls on game day.

It's a mess of players getting quarters in the full forward line where they see Fuk all ball.

Anyway time to move on!

What is the procedure for transferring from one club to another in the LGFA? I know the ladies game is like soccer and players can move to any club.

Why not a 2nd team? Two 13 a sides would be great for more game time. Yes 1 would miss out, but I'm sure it would be a revolving door.

I asked earlier have Mayo ever lost a qualifier in MacHale Park? I was greeted with silence so I presume the answer was never.

I think this will likely be the end of the road for Armagh, hard enough to beat one Division 1 team away from home never mind two and Mayo are better than Monaghan.   If Murnin,Grimley and James Morgan are out Armagh's chances of causing an upset will be much slimmer.

We haven't played many qualifiers at McHale Park. The first qualifier game I remember going to at McHale park was Cavan in 2007 which we won although all I remember from that game was Pierce Hanley playing in that game. After that I think we have beaten Fermanagh and Kildare in McHale park in 2016 so my guess would be we have played three and won three qualifiers in McHale park since the back door came in. I am probably forgetting a game or two somewhere!!

Didn't Mayo play Roscommon in a qualifier in the very early days of them in Castlebar?

Yes. Won that one.

'Fortress' Castlebar. Armagh may well win this one given the fact it's in Castlebar.

Tough draw for us, Armagh are improving while we look to be waning. They'll fancy their chances of taking down a "big" team here I'd say.

Have we ever played in championship before?

1950 semi final.

Next Round 3...

Mayo v Armagh

Kildare v Tyrone

Westmeath v Clare

Offaly v Laois

Hmmm interesting was my first thought. Can't say I know much about Armagh apart from the fact they beat Monaghan well. Mayo's home form nothing to write home about either.

Put Dublin in Tier 1.

Everyone else in tier 2.

Meath are awful.

Soft free there leading to Dubs 10th point.

Paying the ref too.

How the f**k was that a free out?

Mayo keep going, Mourne Rover is probably correct on how Down supporters feel today. A cudda, shudda type night for them.

As for ourselves, if it was another night or another team it'd be curtains for us. It's frightening how the pace has gone from our defence. Down's direct running as I mentioned could've been a lot different for us. Finished the first half well despite going down early on to a goal, that was well taken. Harrison, as good and all as he is has struggled twice in a row. Barrett and Higgins both have lost a good bit of pace. I thought Keegan was quiet by his own standards. Durcan did well going forward and had a reasonably good defensive shift too. Boyle should concentrate on playing football and not acting the hard man because when he does, he's good at it. Too much niggling with his opposite number all through the game for my liking.

Aiden O'Shea was good, but we expect nothing less from him. Diarmuid O'Connor not so. If anything happens O'Shea we're rightly frigged in midfield. Seamie, while good hasn't got a full 70 mins in him. Vaughan might be able to give some pace even though he can have nightmares at centre field too.

Loftus had his best game in a while. Scored the goal and kicked a few points too. Fionn McDonagh started well but faded as the game went on. Another frustrating night for Jason Doherty who should be fearful of his place next weekend. McLoughlin should be in the half forwards or nowhere at all imo. Gave some nice passes when he moved out. Regan kept slowing the game down too often for my liking. Andy gave a lot of nice passes and linked well too.

A good team will beat us whenever we face them.
