Micheal Martin talking specifically about crowd numbers at GAA games today. Hopefully they can push the process along for increasing outdoor attendances.

The new indoor dome looks a great project. The biggest Air dome facility in  Europea. Not cheap at 3million,can cater for 600 spectators.

and Debt free already.
Lets give credit where its due .
Can we have a round of applause for John Prenty
What's the annual maintenance cost?
Asking for a friend

Due to covid can indoor games take place?

400 per month to keep inflated I read.

Playing an indoor game in a massive dome would be far less risky than having 30 kids and a teacher in one classroom.

A lot of people giving out but this will be a great facility to have. So many games get switched to Bekan last minute due to bad weather.

If you look at the Chelsea squad, they should be in the top 4. On match of the day last night they were killing themselves praising lampard and the great job he did. There was huge change in the man utd squad the last 12 months. I read somewhere that Ashley young played 10 games this season.

3rd place is a good outcome even though it's miles behind the top 2. Winning the Europa league would be nice now.

Delighted for Villa. Hope they finish the job now.

Have got numerous vaccines previously when going travelling but I would be slightly apprehensive about getting a rushed through Covid vaccine.

Don't expect we'll be first on the list however so by the time it becomes widely available here I'll get it.

The problem Utd still have is winning games at one nil! They still give away too many cheap goals, while they have put in some decent performances they’ve drawn some games where they should have been outta sight

even as crap as Brighton were the other night, that Utd team coughed up some decent chances for Brighton the better teams put away.

There's still a bit of work in progress with this team.

United are most definitely a counterattacking team now and they're pretty good at it, but the amount of possession afforded to Southampton at Old Trafford was unreal. better teams than them will make many more chances and punish that defence accordingly.

Still a good bit away from challenging for the title IMO.

Two centre back required for a start.

They're more than just a counter attacking side now with a midfield of Matic, Pogba and Fernandes. For whatever reason, a lot of players just underperformed yesterday. Martial and Rashford the only bright spots really.

The Stephen Kenny interview yesterday was interesting when he talked about the lack of young players who came through the last few years. Shane Duffy, John Egan, Matt Doherty, Robbie Brady and Jeff Hendrick were all born in 1992 so 28 this year. The next player younger than them who has broken through, played some competitive games and definitely part of the squad is Aaron Connolly, born in 2000. Maybe Alan Browne who is 25?

That's a serious gap with nobody breaking through.

What's with all the recent fixation re: Italia '90? We were outplayed in most games and played crap football. Definitely an era in bad need of revisionism.

Because it was our first WC and had an impact beyond sport.

Put em under pressure. Caveman football. The Gegenpress. Inspired tactics. Its the same thing.

True but, really, it was a foundation built on sand. It was a time more culturally important than sporting. We never led in any game, only scored 2 goals, the Dutch one at least coming from an error. We created practically nothing v Romania, the English match was derided by foreign (or at least Italian) media as one of the worst WC games ever, while the Egyptian match was probably even worse. (Until the Norway game 4 years later came along). It's debatable whether the 2002 squad was superior, but at least they were encouraged to play better football; that for me remains our best finals campaign (despite or perhaps because of the absence of you-know-who).
A so called analysis built on a foundation of shít for football brains.

Am I wrong? Did I miss the day where we played total football or jogo bonito?

What do you mean when you say 'foundation built on sand'?

We got to two subsequent world cups and 2 Euros.

The only country with ballpark population I can think of who do better is Croatia.

Uruguay have a population less than 4m. Don't think they have many other competing sports however, which Croatia and ourselves do.

OK they are on a decent run at the moment but we know they are still a way off competing regularly for the top spots.

So what is it going to take signings wise to get them there?
Priorities for this summer?

A centre back, preferably a pacy one, to compliment Maguire.

If Pogba stays, I think midfield is fine.

Probably a right winger like Sancho. Greenwood looks a serious talent but that's all there is for that position. I don't rate James tbh. Having rashford, Martial, Greenwood and Sancho for the 3 front positions would be needed over an entire season.

It's alright telling people not to go on a holiday to Spain, Amsterdam etc but I know people over in London that haven't seen their parents since January or February. They have flights booked home in the next few weeks and that will surely result in more clusters around the country.

McCaffrey was on the second captains podcast a couple of weeks after the lockdown started and still seemed enthusiastic for inter county football then. Said he was training away individually to be ready for its return.

I'd say he'll be back next year.

Dara Calleary was shafted completely. FF deputy leader and didn't get a senior ministry job.
