Antrim / Re: Antrim Football Thread
« on: October 22, 2020, 10:10:51 PM »
Not to impressed with statement, trying to suggest Antrim are complicit in it as well for not agreeing to a neutral venue. The bit that sticks out for me is the reference to Northern Ireland instead of Ulster. West brit language. Do they not realise the GAA is a 32 county association.
I agree totally - and rest assured that there are many Waterford Gaels with whom this does not rest easy.  I would have expected better from Port Láirge.

You clearly can’t be objective either. Went to Bolton who clearly weren’t up front to him about their financial situation, still kept them up despite the sinking ship (20th in the 4th tier of English football right now in case you’re wondering) Took on Hibs in the Championship, left them promoted and in Europe. And technically left by mutual consent from both clubs. So let’s be up front, he does has some clout outside his Celtic achievements.

Now, I’m not denying he has failed to demonstrate any tactical nous in what should have been winnable games in the here and now; and he doesn’t exactly fill me with confidence right now, but I don’t see any point in giving him the boot this early and expecting some magician to swoop in and clean up the mess. I think Celtic fans have had it too easy in the last few years and the Rangers are pretty much up to speed and no longer the the laughing stock they were. Failure to secure 10IAR will be unforgivable but I think the club need to persevere with Lennon for the time being. But he’s on his last legs without doubt

I am objective. I have nothing personal against him, it's just clear as day that the job is too big for him and he's not up to it.

The club need to get rid ASAP, the performances this season have been abject, the exit out of the CL was humiliating. We need to be proactive rather than reactive.
Would sticking a poster of Edwin Poots in the changing room help?

Cork and Down (just about) deserve the top 2 places in Division 3.  Those are their most likely finishing positions if all the games had been played.   However given the circumstances in which the last 2 rounds were "played", it would be fair to all counties if the A and B plan was shelved for at least a year.  Restrictions will still be with us well into 2021.

Cork, yes. Down, no. Home advantage and a couple of questionable calls (P Hughes, Armagh) saw them over the line. Gallagher's attire that night was shocking too.
Yes, I think we should have got at least a point from the an Dún game which brings the point dropped against Liatroim into sharper focus.   Would Liatroim have taken a point off an Dún?  We will never know and that is why it would be fair to all counties if the A and B plan was shelved for at least a year.   Did we drop points for Gallagher's appearance as well?!

Tír Eoghain were excellent today and but for a missed goal chance in the first half could have reached the final.  Paul Devlin got his tactics spot on and will be disappointed that the forwards' execution wasn't as clinical as needed.  Great effort though.

Tyrone lost that game on kickouts which you could attribute to a tactical failure. Time and time again Dublin had easy restarts where they could build their attacks from the back. Conversely Dublin pushed up aggressively on the Tyrone kickouts and forced Quinn to kick long where Tyrone got devoured in the middle of the pitch.

No the Tyrone game, I think you just fail to understand the game. Tyrone consistently wasted a lot of ball into their full forward line, kicking it straight down the neck of a few sweepers, we scored 0-01 from play in the second half, got absolutely devoured on our own kickouts. The changes off the bench we made had no impact.

You're just making yourself look incredibly stupid.
No sure what match you were watching - Celtic maybe?
1-4 without reply and devoured??!  Hopefully you know more about your beloved soccer than your pretend GAA interest.  What does some of this even mean?!  Devoured by 2 points?!  Give the Ulster Champions some credit.

Angelo i've said before i'll not defend NL when he doesn't deserve defending and today is def not a day to try but you're are being such a hateful hoor tbh. I've had shit from huns all day but it's nothing having to listen to your crap about Neil Lennon and Celtic. The performance was shit today from players and management and wasn't good enough and if sacking Neil Lennon is the answer then so be it, if a new manager makes Celtic a better team then I'm all for that but I get the feeling that still wouldn't make u happy.
You yapped about James Forrest but i can tell you i'd have gladly taken him today, you yapped about not playing Rogic and Ntcham etc look what them players contributed. As i said yesterday it wouldn't have mattered what the result was today your opinion will always be the same and i stand by my previous comment that you're a f**king disgrace if you call yourself a Celtic fan. You haven't one good thing to say about Celtic, you hate the Board, you hate the manager and by your comments you hate the players so WTF is up your hole.

The performance today was in line with our performances all season. Rangers were the first team we have met this season close to our level and they wiped the floor with us.

I'm not being hateful, I'm being honest and I'm being objective. You are so personally attached to Lennon that you cannot stomach any completely grounded and rational criticism that comes his way.

I'm a Celtic fan, you seem to be a Neil Lennon cheerleader.

A fan supports their team and i've never seen one positive post from you about Celtic so that's why i said you were a disgrace to call yourself a Celtic fan. Yes, you've everyone on your side here and in your words I look like a Neil Lennon cheer leader from todays result (which i haven't defended him) but this has been going on for a long time with you not just today or last week.
I support Celtic through and through and always have done, I support the players and always have done and until they move on or are shipped out then i support whoever wears the green and white hoops. If the manager warrants the sack and it happens then so be it but until that happens then they've my full support.
That is because Angelo seeks attention on whichever thread he is on - check it out and you will see.  Angelo is a fan of nothing, except of himself.  I just want you to know that your allegiance to Celtic is the true one, the type of supporter that all clubs need.  Don't let Angelo put you off - he only cares for his own ego and when challenged he runs.  He does not have "everyone on his side" so do not worry about that - he represents no-one and his comment re Edouard above is bordering on racism.  Imagine using that language to refer to a player from your own team?  He knows exactly what he is doing - and the board will catch up with him.   Know that what you feel in your heart and soul for Celtic is right.

Good victory today - encouraging.   Great to see Glass come on - some addition to any team.  Niall Loughlin a great plus also even though he missed a few frees.  Two younger ones getting a goal each is no harm for confidence either.  Paul McNeill another plus to have available and Odhrán Lynch gives more options all round.  McWilliams and Kearney have all filled-out and that physical strength will be needed v Ard Mhacha.

Decent victory.. I know Longford were missing their main man, but some good performances. Cassidy showed great reactions for his goal. Kearney's goal was a good finish, after a lot of patient build up. More kicking than i expected. impressed with E Doherty throughout. Few silly mistakes at times. But always seemed like they could go up a gear if needed.
Would that main man be Quinn by any chance?!!!!  He got mentioned 3 times by the commentator, despite not playing - which is more times mentioned that some who were playing!   He has a new baby - who got mentioned twice - more than some of the players who were playing!!! Anyhow, watching the match cost me £4.13!  A bargain on Gaa Go!!  Even better news - Ard Mhacha leaked 3 goals and still have a discipline issue - red card, penalties etc.  Makes it interesting!

Angelo starts to crack.  The scientific and economic answer is when the R number is under 1 but since you don't value the current scientific contribution, that is wasted on you.  Cowards - really?   A coward could be someone, as you have admitted to in an earlier post, who would visit an ill loved one even though that loved one could die as a result of your visit.  That is a coward, Angelo - look in the mirror. It will probably crack as well.  Below average intelligence?!   Told you he was cracking!!!  What a sad, lonely man you must be, Angelo.  Anyhow, you have been given enough oxygen at this point - hope no-one on here will need oxygen when Angelo is in charge of health because if you are over 80 ......?!!  Irish Lives Matter.  Stay safe folks and thanks to those who continue to make the hard sacrifices.

I am not your mate - you will have a few less of them if they read your disgraceful posts.  You just don't value life enough, or the lives of our selfless, dedicated healthcare workers enough, to make the effort and sacrifice.  Probably too worried about money.  It is your right to think that way but it my right to call you out on a discussion board for your morality and distain for fellow Irish citizens.  Irish Lives Matter.

My main worry is for people's health and wellbeing and I think lockdowns will have a much worse effect on society as whole than learning to live with Covid as an acceptable risk.

I don't have disdain for Irish people.

You seem to be just shouting illogical rambling now because you are unable to argue your points like an adult.

The more data that we are seeing being released about the virus should have people questioning our approach but when we have people with below average intelligence like yourself then that it's difficult for people to think about things sensibly and what the best balanced approach is.

Do you not accept that lockdown has huge societal and economic consequences? I keep asking this but a lot of you cowards are too afraid to actually address it? At what point does Covid have an acceptable risk?
