GAA Discussion / Meath vs Donegal - 3rd time lucky??
« on: July 08, 2019, 11:34:49 AM »
1 week turnaround is going to be a killer. It’ll be interesting to see how we go but to honest I don’t know how much fuel we have left in the tank for these three games but I think we can get a result somewhere and at the very least bloody a few noses of the big boys.

“Que sera sera” to be quite honest

Are Dublin any use this year?

GAA Discussion / Meath vs Laois, 9th June
« on: May 26, 2019, 06:23:38 PM »
I honestly thought we’d be meeting Westmeath in the semi final given their form so far this year. Should be a good battle this one as arguably both Meath and Laois are about Division 2 standard despite our promotion. Woolly’s podcast will be interesting in the next 2 weeks as he went to our game yesterday. He’ll have to talk about us now. Maybe bring John Cullenane on as a special guest in the run up.

GAA Discussion / Clash of the Titans - Meath vs Offaly May 12th
« on: April 17, 2019, 08:57:48 PM »
Three weeks to go till the big one.

Just trying to think when we last met in the championship, must have been back in 2011 (I think) in Portlaoise. Only Mickey Burke still in the team from that year. I remember his being caught out of position and Offaly getting in for a goal. We won anyway but wasn’t a great year for us.

This game used to be big enough to be played in Croker but not these days but hopefully our new found optimism will bring out a crowd at home. We really targeted the league and were by some accounts championship fit since January. How that will stand to us in May I’m not sure as there’s a lot of county football been played already and club championship already underway. I’d like to think we’d have enough to win this one but we’ve been poor the last two years and Offaly do like to scupper our plans from time to time (1997 and 2000 stick in the memory).

We play Roscommon in a challenge game on the 28th before then which might be a good test of where we stand.

General discussion / South Africa going the way of Zimbabwe
« on: February 28, 2018, 02:15:30 PM »
https://m.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/breaking-national-assembly-adopts-motion-on-land-expropriation-without-compensation-20180227

Something that has been simmering for years now appears to be coming to the fore in a nation, over 27 years since the end of apartheid and 8 years since hosting the World Cup, it looks like motions have been put in place by the government to forcefully dispossess white landowners after years of pressure from the quasi-communist EFF party.

Having got to know a number of Zimbabweans in my time who’s family fled Mugabe and of course we are all pretty aware of the fate of that country as a result i think we might be at the moment where South Africa completely goes off the rails.

Despite the promises of the rainbow nation idea the welfare of its black citizens have barely improved and the murder rates have skyrocketed, white farmers and their staff have been brutally preyed upon with police turning a blind eye. The civil infrastructure is crumbling with failures in sewage, water and electricity networks repeatedly failing.

General discussion / Potterin' about...
« on: March 07, 2017, 11:04:22 PM »
Like my Dad I'm probably at my most content doing a bit of work round the house or in local parlance "potterin' about the place". Just doing a bit to keep her shipshape and to stop herself staging a mutiny. Happy as Larry fixing stuff up and it's a good excuse to head down to the hardware shop with the young lad and talk about tools and the like.

I have to say cutting the grass has to be the best job or anything in the garden, followed by fixing anything electrical though there is little of that I can do properly. Worst jobs for me is hanging shelves and washing the car. Ever since we moved into a plasterboard house shelf hanging had been a pain. The house is now held together by polyfiller. As for the car, I'm happy to let it get dirty enough to grow moss on it then take it down the garage. There's lads up the road from me washing theirs every weekend. Couldn't be doing that, the garage can have my £3 every few months.

Any one else do a bit of potterin' about?

GAA Discussion / Meath Vs Kildare - 5th Feb, Navan
« on: January 24, 2017, 10:02:38 PM »
Well Andy should have a squad picked soon enough and I'd say he has a good idea of what the starting line up is bar three or four positions.

My starters for the league would be as below though if Michael Newman can get fit again I'd get him in ahead of Ward. Same for Conor McGill at corner back instead of Curren but that not Currens strongest position anyway.

J Hannigan;

S Curran, D Keogan, M Burke;
C Downey, B Power, A Forde;

B Menton, A Flanagan;

C O’Sullivan, G Reilly, P Kennelly;
B McMahon, F Ward, D Lenihan.

GAA Discussion / New Stadium for the Dubs - Spawell
« on: January 19, 2017, 09:04:29 PM »
Sorry to start another stadium thread.

I understand there is a move to build a 25,000 seater stadium next to the M50. Does this mean Parnell Park is up for sale if it goes ahead.

So where does that put the picture of stadia in Leinster? Navan is getting rebuilt, Newbridge too? Anyone else need a stadium? Louth?

Looking forward to this. When did we last meet in the championship? Must have been in the 80's but I honestly can't recall a time.

Oisín was on second captains and he reckons Meath will win but that we are also good enough to reach a semi-final which I think is entirely plausible so long s we don't suffer any psychological damage from the Dublin game which I don't think we should.

GAA Discussion / Meath vs Dublin - 26/06/16
« on: June 12, 2016, 09:57:44 PM »
Ah sure, I suppose we might give them a game. Maybe the lads might show us something we haven't seen from them yet on the occasion.

Here's hoping but if its a more respectable scoreline ala 2012 or 2013 rather than 2014 I suppose we can only take it as some sort of positive.

Dublin 1/50 to win, Meath 14/1 and 28/1 to draw on Paddy Power. Might just throw a few quid on the latter two.

Hurling Discussion / Meath vs Antrim - Christy Ring Final
« on: May 30, 2016, 09:06:21 PM »
Great occasion for Meath hurling. Its been a long old climb up the rankings but to finally make it past Kildare this year and on to the CR final its a great achievement no matter what happens. Not that we'll be only making up the numbers, look at what Westmeath did to the Cats at U21, so this could be the year of up sets.

Hopefully we'll be well represented in Croke Park on the day.

GAA Discussion / Meath vs Louth 12/06/16
« on: May 17, 2016, 09:24:38 PM »
Apparently moved to Pairc Tailteann but official site still says Parnell Park.

Hard to know what team we'll have. Twelve players who got a run out last year now not on the panel.

Recently beat Donegal in a challenge match in Ballybofey, rumored to have put 5 goals past them but that's just what was posted on hoganstand so take that with truck load of salt. Mayo beat us in a challenge match before that.

I'm not going to write anything about this game.

I just want Andy McEntee to be our manager.

Would he want the job though?
