Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

It's a strange looking team on paper and I don't think it'll line out as selected. Ritchie Donnelly could end up going to full forward for example.

There aren't many out and out forwards but who else have we? Coney or Grugan are more half forward/attacking midfield type players. McCurry and Brennan both tried and struggled to win  ball when kicked to them. I think Brennan is better suited to coming of the bench at this stage, Coney may well be the same.

Harte is more dangerous and a better ball winner up there than the other players named. He got a lot of ball in the first half v Mayo and should have had 3 or 4 points but dropped a couple short. Also when he did win the ball there was no support runners. I've no problem with him playing up there if he gets a bit of support.

McCurry is possibly injured if not named in the 26, Grugan could be the same.

I am expecting a big improvement tomorrow night. It's been a poor start to the league but we aren't as bad as we have looked to date.

Wedding in family.

Disgusting right wing populist decision.

What a vile government the UK has.
what should they do with her ?
Follow their own strategy and have a criminal investigation when / if she returns to the UK. If she has committed a crime then she should receive the appropriate punishment.

How could you seriously convict her of anything? I don't know how you would even go about trying to compile the evidence at the cost of the UK Taxpayer and any top defence lawyer would take the case for free as target practice on the highest stage.

I assume at this stage she'll be back in the UK sooner or later with the Bangladesh news.

Section 11 of the terrorism act 2000 makes it a criminal offence to belong to it orofess to belong to a terrorist organisation in the UK or overseas.
Section 12(1) of the act makes it a criminal offence to invite support for a proscribed organisation and thatís not restricted to money or property

I imagine she could be done under these

Very fair point, I wonder how many convictions have been made under these sections?

Hard to tell really, the competition is fierce this year. A lot will come down to good fortune on the injury front for smaller squads such as the Lough and Gortin. Pomeroy and Galbally would have to be huge favourites.

Any danger of Cookstown getting the act together ?

well whats the thoughts on the monaghan game.
will we see a tactical masterclass or a return to 2 sweepers. will matty peetey and tiernaneey solo like gaelic gods into blind channels turn and give it back to our midfield 10. will horse stop shouting back back back. will nialeee solo up the field and launch one like the legendary one in roscommon. will any man kick it forward. questions questions. turgid tyrone versus miserable monaghan. why dont they just have a free taking competition between the 2nd and 3 rd best keepers in ulster to decide whos going down. mickey could hold a photo of colm cavnagh and horse could recite the hail mary in irish with help from tg4 to put beggan off and o rourke could hold up a picture of ballbofey and get that dromore eejit to roar in his face. be easier to hold it in garvaghey too if some one coud get 50p for the meter. gaelic football bloody hell

Monaghan should win handy enough then? 2nd and 3rd best keepers in Ulster - I know I shouldn't.....but, go on....who is #1 ?

Imagine a final largely impacted by a red card on the basis of a ridiculous rule implemented by hardly any referee.

David Gough - had to get his name in the paper didn't he?

Is the Final live on TG4?
TG4 You Tube

Don't be calling him a tube!

lol very harsh.

If Marys can win this then it will exceed their triumph of 2 years ago! UCC are serious side with a spine as good as any county side.

 :'( :'(

I think this could be a game too far for St Mary's but hope I'm wrong. Unbelievable achievement for them to get to 2 Sigerson Finals in 3 years

UCD   weren't too shabby either.  St Mary's pick from 130 max and offer no packages to attract students   other than career in teaching    where you work 190 days a year !!!!

Not entirely true.

Manager of year winner?

Can't be a serious view. Manager takes most expensively assembled team of all time (certainly 2nd or 3rd if not) to a few straight wins?

I'd have thought the Wolves manager is a shoe in personally. Maybe Warnock if he pulls off an unlikely miracle at Cardiff although his personality probably would mean he'll not even be considered.

OGS will be judged on City and Liverpool - they are Manchester United rivals with Chelsea going through a bit of blip at present.

Not the Spurs game?

It was a good result, but not one I would imagine that'll catapult him into the manager of year territory or even the full time gig at OT.

Spurs battered Utd that day, a combination of shocking finishing and DDG got Utd over the line I'm sure you would agree.

Iíd agree that Ole isnít manager of the year based on half a season, nor did I say the game v Spurs was a battle, but Utd came out with a result, theyíve beaten Chelsea Spurs and Arsenal. That was all I was saying.

Whatever the result at the weekend and again v city, Ole has done plenty to put his hat in the ring for the  permanent position.

I just found it amusing you left out Spurs away from home game.

Spurs are Spurs?  ;D :-X

I havenít really been following the full back story to this, but I find it strange that ISIS would just let her wander out of their enclave and move back to the UK. Iíd have thought this sort of disloyalty would have resulted in her being executed.

ISIS is defeated and finished in state form, they hold a tiny area on the Iraqi/Syrian border which is only a matter of time before it's overrun, they are using human shields at the moment to halt progress.

It'll morph back to an Al Qaeda like organisation from here, perhaps another group will rise. As far as being a target on the map this group is finished and like Capt Pat said, they are on the run (those with any kind of intelligence)

Fair enough, but i still would have thought that theyíd have enough firepower remaining to stop a woman who is 9 months pregnant, and possibly knows a little too much about the organisation, from casually wandering off back to the arms of UK. Iíd have thought they were still trying to play some sort of propaganda game. Or maybe as you say, they are so on the verge of collapse that they have bigger things to worry about.

Absolutely, but she probably would have slowed them down, maybe she was cut loose? Surprising the group didn't use her as some kind of sick PR stunt myself but those lads have bigger problems right now.

The biggest question I have now with the fall of ISIS is, where is all the money? There are likely some leaders of that organisation, wherever they may be now with the access and knowledge of enough money I would imagine to keep going and funding war for a long time.

Every time you refresh the page AI generated image of a person who does not exist.

Something a little upsetting seeing the faces of people who do not exist.

Something even more unsettling seeing the faces of people you find attractive who do not exist.

Sexton will be the 10 at the W.C barring any kind of injury. He still is ahead in nearly every aspect.

That said, Sexton is likely to be targeted as normal - makes sense for his heir to be ready.
