GAA Discussion / All Stars of the Sunday Game era.
« on: April 28, 2020, 04:56:46 PM »
Has anyone else been keeping an eye on the formation of these teams?

Over the last 40 years, The Sunday Game has brought the GAA football and hurling championships into your homes.

And now, we want you to help us choose the best XV in each code of the TV era - picking the best XV from All-Star winners of the Sunday Game era (1979-present)

They've already voted for the goalkeeper and both full back and half back lines.  And voting is open for midfield.

The team so far is:

1. Cluxton
2. Paídí
3. Moynihan
4. Marc O'Sé
5. McCaffrey
6. Keegan
7. Tomas O'Sé

GAA Discussion / Football All Stars 2019

*Couldn't find a topic for this subject, will delete if there already is one*

Now that we are down to the last 4 teams in the race for the All Ireland title, what are the chances that those already eliminated will pick up All Stars.

Donegal should pick up a few nominations for the likes of Murphy, McHugh, Brennan, McBrearty and Patton. But, despite winning Ulster and only losing one game, they will only pick up a maximum of 2.

Cork, Meath and Roscommon combined might only get a couple between them if that.

From an Ulster perspective the likes of McKiernan (Cavan) and O'Neill (Armagh) could get nominations, but have no chance of the award.

GAA Discussion / Derry v Wexford 11th July 2015

Derry scrapped by 14man Down by a solitary score at home.
Wexford destroyed Down at home.

It's clear who must be the favourites for this one.

Another one-sided encounter?

General discussion / Penalty Decisions
« on: January 20, 2014, 04:31:16 PM »
I was going to post this on the Liverpool thread, but thought that Penalty Decisions should have its own thread.

The above link is to the Manchester Utd v Chelsea FA Cup Final in 1994.  David Elleray was the referee. 

Utd were given two penalties that day:
1. Foul on Irwin (watch from 1min)
2. Foul on Kanchelskis (watch from 3.30min)

The foul on Irwin was a definite penalty and a ridiculous tackle by Newton. 
The second decision most people would say it was a penalty, but the Utd player went down easy looking for the decision.

GAA Discussion / What is a handy/soft free?
« on: August 26, 2013, 08:01:02 PM »
There is a lot of talk on the Tyrone v Mayo thread about handy/soft/easy frees that were awarded to Mayo.

What is everyone's definition of such a free?

A. Is it one were contact was accidental?
B. Is it one where the tackler has committed a foul but only a little bit? (Wee tug on the geansai)
C. Is it one where the contact is the norm for a physical game?

Any ideas?

I did a search to see if this has been done before, but couldn't find any reference to this at all.
So here goes with another Top 5 List

Updated my itunes this morning and I had a look at the top 5 most played songs.

1. Dog Days Are Over - Florence & The Machine: 46
2. The Cave - Mumford & Sons: 40
3. Our Velocity - Maximo Park: 36
4. Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want - The Smiths: 35
5. Mr Brightside - The Killers: 34

There are at least a couple of hundred songs itunes are telling me I have not listened to at all.

General discussion / Fenlon Quits
« on: May 22, 2007, 10:58:07 AM »

Fenlon quits as Derry City boss
Pat Felon has resigned as manager of Eircom Premier Division club Derry City after just five months in the job.
The former Shelbourne boss, who took over from Stephen Kenny at the Brandywell, has yet to announce the reasons for his decision.

Derry have struggled at the start of their first season under Fenlon and the Candystripes lie fifth in the league, 11 points behind leaders St Pat's.

City could only manage a draw with basement club Longford on Saturday.
