Kevin Martin seemingly.

Shambles.
Aye. Unfortunately, there are many layers as to why we are where we are.
Not even remotely covered by the above link, or even the Liam Hogan interview on radio 3.

Bond? That was supposed to be sarcastic, but itís gone beyond that. The reality is that the shit is on its way to hit the fan. The odds are very much so stacked against us.

Iíd love to see a management team that contains Pat Fluery, if only in the background, a la Darby last year. According to the former hurlers that Iíve talked to throughout the years, he was the best manager they had.

That is a pretty comprehensive analysis of a team in crisis
And itís without properly delving into the deeper problems, and their sources.

Things not looking good for Waterford. Offaly have been a long way off past glories for at least this decade. Antrim game a big test for them. Should have enough for Kerry. (Although bar 89 the buggers usually beat Antrim by a bit but hopefully not this year)

Iíd say Offaly and Antrim at similar level, was listening to the games on the radio yesterday and the co commentator was an Offaly man, he was fuming

I think Jim Troy was the co-commentator and indeed he was fuming.
He summed up Westmeath's second goal something like this - "he walked in from 50 yards and could have had tay on the way".
Jim Troy would most certainly not be of the kind to do any media work. Plus, youíd hardly understand him, with his mumbling voice.
ĎTwas Joe Troy, a local part time journalist, fuel and oil salesman and all round hack.

Anyone guess who'll be elected in the various constituencies in the 26? Mairead McGuinness will prob top the poll in Midlands/North/West. Apart from that???
Mairťad McGuinness
Ming
Brendan Smith
Carthy or Casey. People are copping on to Carthyís co-option party trick.

Ireland South:
SeŠn Kelly
Liadh NŪ Riada
Billy Kelleher
Clune/ Smith
Byrne

Dublin:
Fitzgerald
Andrews
Boylan
Iíve a funny feeling that Cuffe will get the last one.

IMHO, of course. I may be proven to be wrong.
Only 4 seats in South and 3 in Dublin. Other seats suspended because the British are still there.

Iím aware of that.

13. Bernard Allen (Tubber)
14. Niall McNamee (Rhode)
15. Ruairi McNamee (Rhode)

Iíve a feeling that thereíll be one change to that team.

Is that Offaly's strongest available side, any injuries or better players left on the bench?
In terms of whatís in there, more or less the strongest. Joey OíConnor is struggling with an injury, while I feel that Paul McConway should be in defence, with Mangan taken out. Iíd like to see Peter Cunningham at centre forward.

In terms of footballers in the county, probably not. I know of a good few players asked in that either dropped out, due to work commitments, or whatever, or just would not go in.
That being said, itís not a bad side at all. As strong as we could hope for, I suppose.

McConway and OíConnor would be the best players on the bench, both defenders, although Joey can bomb forward. Whether heís even fit or not, I donít know.
Shane Tierney in the forwards, I suppose. In reality heís just too small and not really up to it physically. I can imagine a Meath lad giving him a nice welcome if he arrives onto the pitch.

General discussion / Re: The OFFICIAL Liverpool FC thread

Would be weird if Spurs won it. A club that hasnít won the league in what, 50 or 60 years? No FA Cup final appearances since 1991, and only two league cups in the trophy cabinet over the last 35 years.

agree, the whole point about being champions is its supposed to be difficult to win the champions league. Now any spanish, german or english team can qualify, get reasonable luck and win it underserved. The gah is going the same way, no room for shocks. Open draw and 2 legs from the start lol.

Surely you are contradicting your own point there? If you can get reasonable luck and win it undeserved then that would be a shock?

Shocks are gone in the Gaa, football world anyway, but theyíre not in the champions league. What odds on spurs getting to the final? Liverpool were there last year so hardly a shock. Spurs are bound to have been pretty long odds to get to the final.
The last 5 CL finals were won as expected.
When is the last time a team from Eastern Europe won it?
Red Star Belgrade in 91, on penalties. Back when Yugoslavia existed.
