Midfield is championship level along with Pogba who doesn't want to be there. Biggest mistake was selling Herrera who was providing leadership in the middle of the park and not replacing him. Fred signed for 50 million has become the latest Brazillian flop alongsie Anderson and Kleberson.

It's worse than that. At least if they'd sold him they could've gotten a bit of money out of it. They let his contract run down and he walked away for nothing. But Woodward et al. still made sure to find the time and money to offer contact extensions to Young, Smalling and Jones in the last 12 months. Nothing the club has done in the last five years makes any footballing sense. There is no vision for the future beyond sourcing the next noodle or mattress partner. It's a broken football club.

This is the only squad that really matters to those that run the show:

General discussion / Re: A GAA related car problem ...
« on: September 25, 2019, 10:16:32 PM »
My car was parked at a packed GAA field carpark directly behind the goals.  A high ball went over the netting behind the goals and landed right in the middle of the car bonnet.  Brought the car to a body repair shop, was told the car needed a new bonnet, with an all in price of £550.

Now the car is on a PCP deal which runs out next April.  I intend in handing the car back at the end of the deal.  My question is should I pay the £550 to get the car repaired, or just land back with it to the garage and see what they will charge … anyone have any experience of returning a damaged car on a PCP deal? Thanks.

Yes, that was an expensive club game to attend!

Was it Armagh clubs playing?  If so, I can see why you'd think directly behind the goals was the best place to park it!

Yes, but only one car park to choose from, and that was behind the goals.

Would the host club's insurance cover such an event?

Edit 7 October Update:

Kerry's championship on a tight enough schedule...

Round One w/e 22nd Sept - 16 teams (Feale Rangers eliminated in prelim round)
Round Two w/e 29th Sept - 4 teams eliminated (Austin Stacks*, Mid Kerry, Kenmare District, Rathmore)

Round Three w/e 6th Oct - 4 teams eliminated (Kerins O'Rahilly's, Shannon Rangers, West Kerry)
Final Round Three game w/e 13th Oct (postponed due to bereavement)

Quarter Finals w/e 20th Oct - 4 teams eliminated
Semi Finals w/e 27th Oct

Rest Week w/e 3rd November
County Final penciled in for 10th November

Munster Club semi-final 17th November.

If the County Final has not been played, the last club team standing will represent Kerry in Munster.  Not sure what happens if two club teams in final...draw out of the hat, I suppose? 

*If the County Champions are a divisional team, the winners of the Senior Club (held in April/May) will represent Kerry...that would be Austin Stacks.

Rumours we are down for 4 away games.
No big shock there as Ros had 4 home games in 2019. The nr of home and away fixtures alternate each year.
Not always plus we changed Divisions.
Fair enough I thought it applied to all, but I think we can agree that the Dubs gettting shafted 2 years running with 4 away games is a good thing.

Latest 2 year cycle ended in 2019.

So a new one, or some other new agreement, will be in place for 2020.
