I'm going to South of France for 10 days and was thinking of driving around the riveria area and maybe up into the Alps
Are the French alps worth a look or am I better to go to the Swiss alps?

It's free next weekend.

And bring yer own fcukin tea this time.

Do people search bags in Omagh, Would it be hard to smuggle in a few cans?
Heard them chatting on Newstalk one night and they were saying that whatever chance Tyrone have of beating the Dubs in a semi or final.
There is no way they're gonna beat them twice in the space of a month so Harte would be crazy to go all out and show his "red" hand in this game.

For those who believe, Mickey goes all out to win all games he plays needs to stop taking the man at his word. He's like Jim Gavin in that respect in that what he does is often very different to what he said.
Didn't Jim say last Sat that Roscommon gave them a good challenge.
That's the only hope I have for any team getting Dublin in the semi, is that it will be like the old system where they have come through a few very easy games and are caught cold by a team at a much higher intensity having built up momentum.

Of course all the Dubs want to see teams open up and play a much more expansive style of football like say Cork did but the Dubs will tear most teams apart if you give them that much space and one on one battles. Mannion, O'Callaghan, Costello, Kilkenny and of course Jack the lad would do some damage if left one on one with loads of space in front of them.

Were you supporting the Dubs last year in the final?
Fair play !

Newbridge or nowhere

In this Laochra Gael

the early 80s progress of Offaly vs the then behemoth, Kerry, is charted
Offaly were a good bit off in 80 but were encouraged in 81 and beat them in 82

And Tyrone this year ?

Darragh Canavan (The Son of God) comes on in the final and scores a cracker against Cluxton in the 78th minute.

Will be in Westport the weekend of this match with a few mates
Would it be hard to get tickets would you say? I see they're sold out on at the moment.

Have never been to any neutral game outside Croker I think.

A friend of mine has an apt in D7, which is usually free Sun to Thur and the odd weekend, with 4 double beds.
PM me if you need a place to stay or fancy a wee break in the big shmoke.

Like most counties you will get decent fans and then you'll get lads up for the piss up and to stir shite.
I've been in the hill loads of times and whilst there are loads of decent enough folk in there, it's normally the rough ones that you notice more and tend to create the atmosphere of it being a bit rowdy and scary.
I wonder will they sing come on you black and tans/"red hands" this year.

I'd say Dublin will rest a few of their older players but sure their B team will beat most A teams and are hungry to push for a starting place or at least get into the first 26.

Yeah they would also tell you they've not played any home ones either.
I can see the stadium being covered in flags this year and not just Palestine ones.

That was a genuine mistake and not a wind up for those who know me?  ;)

A lot of Dubs I have been talking to where really looking forward to this trip again this year.
Would be nice to beat the AI champs twice or even three times in the one year.  ;D

Sorry if this has been asked before.
I was going to bring a 20Kg bag on Ryanair next week and I have already paid for it on booking.
Just wondering if you check in online how early do you have to check the bag in to the drop zone?
Please dont say 2 hours. Can't see it anywhere on their website

Yeah would agree with a lot of what was said above but especially that Kennedy has really been given a lot of chances this year to develop and whilst I thought he played very well in spoiling Fenton's game v Dublin in the league, he hasn't really done a lot to impress me. Yes it's important to give him loads of chances to develop but coming into the last 4 of an All Ireland you want your best 15 on the field and for me he's far too soft and nice for the size of him. He could learn a lot from Colm C, who I think hasn't quite reached the levels he had last year either at MF or as a sweeper. I know I'm being critical now but he seems to be a bit rash much more this year in when to come out of the D and be over enthusiastic to make a big tackle and so men can time a run in behind him then into the space he's just left. I even wonder did Cork practice that for their second goal on Saturday.

I read last week we have conceded 17 goals in 18 games over the last 2 years, which seems high for such a defensive minded team. I think it's to do with zonal marking sometimes or as someone said above a few players turning off and not following the runner. We've seen that time and time again this year and for me it's why we are conceding so many goals. Can't understand how Mickey thinks Kernan is better than Cassidy. I can't see much he's done wrong this year to lose his place and with Tiernan back now I wouldn't be surprised to see Tiernan start both next matches if fully fit.

McNamee has had a good year though I still thing he can be a little easily turned at times. You would imagine HP will lose out to Hampsey if he's back to himself. Rory B has looked quite solid most of the year and seems to have finally nailed down a place.

I was at the Kerry v Donegal game yesterday and if I'm honest I thought BOTH were playing at a higher level to us and I can't see us beating either if we dont move up to the next level. However, saying that we've played a lot of football in the last 8 weeks and so maybe the 2 week break will be what we needed.
I think if we continue to start so slowly against the bigger teams we will not be able to get back into the game like we did last weekend.

Re Richie, I think he's vital for hitting good passes into McShane and hopefully from here on in Mattie too.
Mattie looked really pumped up in the second half and showed a lot more leadership than I've seen from him before. McShane was well marshalled yet he still scored 1.05 like Petey so these three lads need to be kept well up the field and at the end of moves.
Sludden and Burns had another quiet enough game I thought and you wonder why can't they reach their full potential more often. Again could be tiredness.

I know I sound negative but I really don't think we're good enough to beat Kerry in the semi so rather than this idea of resting players I'd be all on for going all out to bed the Dubs in Omagh and make a bold statement that this team is beatable away from their home luxuries. Even if it is their B team but I can't see that happening tbh.
