Brutal the level of ignorance in our media with the standings. I have seen it reported that Cavan are relegated and that Mayo are guaranteed a league final appearance with a win.
Neither statement is correct.

While it is unlikely, if Cavan win, Ros draw and Monaghan lose and if Monaghan's losing margin plus Cavan's winning margin is greater than 5 (or equal to 5 and Cavan score 6 points more than Monaghan) then Cavan would stay up.

If Mayo, Galway and Kerry all win (or if Kerry draw), Mayo will finish third.
If Mayo and Galway win and Kerry lose, it would depend on margins. Mayo currently +7, Galway +0 and Kerry +11. Most likely Mayo and Kerry in this scenario, but could technically be any 2 of the three.
If Mayo draw and Tyrone beat Galway, Mayo would finish second by virtue of H2H win over Tyrone.
If Mayo draw and Galway draw or win, Galway would finish second.
If Mayo lose they cannot finish in the top 2.

The only way Kerry do not qualify for the final is if Mayo and Galway both win well and Kerry lose heavily. Galway win plus Kerry loss would need to be 12 points

Neglected to add - Tyrone can qualify for the league final with a win over Galway if Mayo lose to Monaghan.

Pat Laffan. Famously Pat Mustard and Georgie Burgess.
As Pat would say, shit happens. RIP.

"I'll be off, then Padre. Off on my rounds"

RIP Pat Laffan. Two iconic characters from my youth

First English team to beat Bayern at home since Norwich in 1993?

from how many attempts?

United 3 times at least, Arsenal 2, Chelsea 1 or 2...

Actually, City beat them in 2013. Never mind.

and Arsenal in 2013? Bayern went through on away goals rule

FAI - Laughing Stock

Would you blame croke park for a ludicrous all star award?

You would if they gave it to someone who didn't play GAA

Just looking at the run ins:
Liverpool seem to have an easier run-in, though a lot depends on how teams go between now and then - who will be battling for their lives etc.

City play
Fulham (a) - already gone?
Cardiff (h) - fighting for their life
Palace (a) - safe
Spurs (h) - Fighting for 4th
United (a) - same, derby
Burnley (a) - currently fighting for their lives, depends where they are at

Leicester (h) - safe
Brighton (a) - could be in a battle

Liverpool have
Fulham (a) - already gone?
Spurs (h) - fighting for 4th, but also seem to be in freefall
Southampton (a) - fighting for life
Chelsea (h) - fighting for 4th

Cardiff (a) - could be in a dogfight, could be already gone
Huddersfield (h) - already gone
Newcastle (a) - should be safe by then
Wolves (h) - mid table


edit - missed a game

Laois / Re: 2019 Allianz National Hurling League
« on: March 06, 2019, 11:04:23 PM »
The game will be on TG4 just for anyone who can't make it. Don't know if Mossy can get TG4 in the states.
I'm able to watch TG4's GAA highlights (for which I am thankful for) but live games aren't viewable in the US. I am looking into getting a VPN that will make it look like I am in Ireland which, hopefully, will make it so I can watch live matches.   :)
Is GAAGO not an option for TG4 games?

I don't know of them. I will look into it. Thanks, Don!

Just checked my Gaago subscription and the Laois v Limerick game will be shown live at 19:00 Irish time for all subscribers outside of ireland.
A yearly subscription costs E140, or you can pay for one off games. This game is E10, I believe the prices go up in latter stages of championship

Are we not totally missing the point here?

We are trying to force the winning team go into an area packed with bodies rather than holding on to possession and trying to draw the defending team out.

Surely we should be stopping the defending team from all sitting inside their own 45

Galway's game management going down the home stretch was superb. Time keeping in gaelic football is a total farce at this stage but Galway exploited it to the max. There was 6 minutes of injury time and 3 of those were stoppages, yet Deegan blew up as soon as the 6 were up...jokeshop. Compare Galway's time wasting in the second half, when they were against the wind, with Mayo. Not one Mayo player tried to slow the game down in the first half when we were against the wind. Mayo need to wise up.

How did he blow up when 6 were up, when Vaughan's last point was scored into the 7th min of added time, and there was two more kickouts after that? 6 mins added was more than fair in the first place. Galway didnt get that in the first half despite injuries. It's accepted practice to take the wind first and try build a lead but a past club manager of ours used to always take it for the second half, on the basis that you'd get far more added at the end of 60 (or 70) than at the end of H1. Hard argue against it

Interesting theory. Would be good to see ball-in-play time for both halves. Does anyone provide that stat?

A fella did that on me where he parked next in the queue and then went and paid so I reversed into the carwash and then got out an went and paid.  When I came out again I put the toekn in and sat on the wall reading the paper until it was finished then jumped into the car as if I hadnt seen him.

So, no consideration for others. Your mammy must be proud.

did you just use a post from 12 years ago to have a cheap dig?!

That's enough internet for today!  ;D

Surprised Diarmuid and Kevin McLoughlin aren't there assuming they're fit? I would have kept Michael Plunkett at centre half back as well.

Surely Horan will still have his customary 2-3 changes before throw-in
