3 late Cork goals that day made it worse than it was. Not that Mayo we're great like.

Jacko was Mayo manager that year if I recall.

Bound to be a book in Francie

Can't see it. He's a man of mystery. Quite right. Give the f**kers nothing!

I hit save but obviously didn't work. Was wondering why I kept scoring 0  >:(

The modern football era can be divided into two periods, pre and post Jimmy McGuinness.
What we thought was puke football was actually nothing of the kind.
I'd love to get back to the noughties-era football.
The rubicon was crossed in 2002 if not 03

The 2003 semi was the watershed moment. Kerry copied the style in 2004, and it went from there.

90's football was a great era. 8 different AI winners in 9 years, with a few underdog provincial wins too.

I always felt Derry was Ulsters best chance to keep the run going in 1995. Tyrone beat them, but I thought they wouldn't have enough to win an AI. And so it proved. 1995 was a big opportunity for Derry to win a second AI.

It's weird that that team never really got close again.

It's a Kerryism.

Or arrah in the western counties

Not sure about the usage of yerra, but arragh is a great phrase.

It can be used to dismiss anything that you disagree with /don't like / understand. It can be put with most words to make a complete sentence.

"That was a terrible brawl in the Tyrone club game"
"Arragh brawl"

"I was reading about it in the Independent"
"AAAARAaagh Independent"

"Eamon Dunphy was talking about it on his podcast"
"AAAAARAAAAAAAGGHHHH Dunphy"
Araaagh" is, like, if you agree with someone, you know, like "Philomena Begley is one great piece of ass. Araaagh!" But then, if you disagree, like "A Massey is better than a Case? Araaagh!" You know? But then, it's also like if something's the greatest thing in the world, like, "Minghia! That curry sauce ! Araaagh!" But it's also like saying "Go to hell!" too. Like, you know, like "Hey Prionsus, you got a one-inch pecker?" and Prionsus says "Araaagh!" Sometimes it just means "Araaagh".

My head's sore reading that.

And I'm still none the wiser.
Go and watch Donnie Brasco.

Why, is he from Kerry?

When shane long goes off form he really goes off form. He has been off form nearly since the germany goal!!

Great work rate which is good for Ireland however with that kind of form he's not going to make a premier league team. Austin, Ings and the Italian guy are always going to get picked ahead of him.

Except last Monday when he was picked ahead of Austin and the Italian lad

Big Cas?

Are Norn Iron players included within that Irish goal count?

A couple of things:

- If it was a deliberate attack on Cavanagh, then fair enough. But he wouldn't have highlighted it if no book was in the shops.

- Secondly, if it was accidental, the Edendork fella will be put through the wringer big time. I just hope Cavanagh knew it was deliberate, otherwise Cavanagh is going to look like a right c**t if it was proved accidental.

Andrew Murnin's points v Roscommon. A joy to witness.

Armagh comeback v Clare.

Fermanagh fans on pitch celebrating v Monaghan.

Kildare getting to host Mayo in Newbridge.

The Pope signing a Mayo jersey.

After that, nothing. Such a bland, boring season.

Yeah but Shane Long had a poor season last year. Which probably made things look worse.

70 goals in 92/93 - who would have got the bulk of those? Big Quinny, Townsend, Houghton, Keane, Irwin, Staunton, Sheridan, McGrath etc. that's a quare load of goals considering there was only one Irish striker. And Quinn was hardly prolific.
