I agree with this. This hybrid of league and cup is neither one or the other. Teams are half arsed knowing they get another shot.
Got rid of provincial. 8 groups with 4 teams .Teams play each other twice. Top 2 teams go to A championship. Bottom 2 to B championship. All knockout. A & B to be played same day.

Sure that’s the Tommy Cannon cup again.

How about 32 teams, open draw? No second chance.

I’ll see myself out.

I hope that the Roscommon team are more focused on the actual game than their supporters seem to be. I’d venture to say that the team aren’t wallowing in self-pity at the unfairness of the world.
How many division 1 teams have Dublin played in the championship in 2019?
Roscommon have played 3 already

Dublins fault no doubt.

I have never seen as much getting excuses in first as I have on here.

He has his UEFA A License so has every right to go for these jobs and impress at interview.
...against ex pros and experienced managers with a track record who know the league and have Pro licences...

Nobody is saying he is unemployable. Put another way, I think Stephen Kenny could do a job as a Gaelic Football manager. But he aint getting a county team first job in.

Agreed, never really understood how he landed a manager role in soccer given his lack of experience in the soccer world. 

The only transferable skills he would have had would have been as a mental performance coach or fitness coach, which I’m sure he is good at, being a manager in professional sport different ball game I would think.

Did he not start at Celtic as a performance analyst and move into youth coaching? Then to China as an assistant manager and to a smaller club as manager. Have I that right?

Dublin will stroll it if it was played on the moon.

At least the Rossies get the experience of getting hammered in Croker as opposed to some midlands dump.
I know, they'll have the joy of an extra hour or two to relive said hammering on the journey home. In a line of cars snaking out of Dublin or an more expensive public transport, no €2.70 15-20 min rides home for them.

Like the majority of the population of Roscommon, they can also chose to leave it.
One sixth of the population of Roscommon attended the Hyde Saturday.
One forty fifth of the population of Dublin attended Croke Park Saturday.
Go back to your soccer you floot  >:(
  Is my point. Most Roscommoners dont live there, unless you are actually arguing 1 in 6 locals went, which would be silly.
Those pesky Roscommon people lying on the census forms again


Lookit, if you believe 11,000 Rossies were there, never mind 11,000 travelled from Roscommon, best of luck.

He is using locals, who have similar travel, in both cases. This seems like a fair comparison.

They will have to travel regardless of venue. Thats the choice they make for a rural life. Dubs dont have to travel as far because they chose to live near things.

I'm not into soccer at all so that's interesting that LOI lads would reject a perceived GAA man.



Its absolute nonsense. One win in 15 in the US part time second tier is why no LoI club is interested, not an anti GAA bias. Nothing stopping him taking a job as Finn Harps u16 coach and building up, he is not a manager of a professional side yet.

I think people overstate how impressive assistant manager of Celtics U20 side is.

Serious Question - Would a LOI club go for a Rookie Manager with his  limited playing and coaching experience. There are bound to be a queue of better qualified and more experienced personnel in the LOI? What does he know about the LOI?

The idea of a LOI club taking on a GAA man as a manager is hilarious. A serious no-no. Serious hard-core soccer folk hate the GAA. I would suspect they neither know or care much about Jimmy McGuinness. They idea a league of Ireland club would have anything to do with him is daft imo.

Didnt Philly McMahon work as Shamrock Rovers fitness coach for a few years?  And they have a gripe.

I think simply his lack of experience rather than a grand conspiracy is the issue.

The only thing that will stop the GAA pumping money into Dublin is a collapse in attendances.
They can’t fund the project without gate receipts. Unfortunately for them the Super 8 is as lopsided as everything else. Sport without competition is a turn off for fans. RTÉ can’t charge the same ad rates for matches people won’t watch.

« Where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to never was there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it. »

 Flannery O’Connor

Yes, this is why I want Dublin to win and win and win. Attendances will die. Money will dry up and Headquarters will have no choice but to change the funding.

Cork beating Dublin would have been a disaster yesterday.

The darkest time is before dawn.

Change what funding

Dublin don't have an outsize number of Games Promotion Officers compared to other counties

Funding GPOs is the very definition of investing in the grass roots and communities

The grass roots in Dublin seems to be irrelevant to most country people, they would rather see clubs in Dublin die

That's a horribly sneering attitude

Dublin has around 90 clubs, it's not a massive amount relatively speaking

Kilmacud Crokes have Adult teams in Division 1, 2, 5, 7, 8 and 10. That's 6 adult teams. Vincents have 4 Adult teams in Divisions 1,3,6 and 9.  So when you talk of 90 clubs, these clubs are not like Junior Clubs in Mayo, Kerry, Galway or Donegal. Most of them are monsters.
Most arent actually. There are far more junior clubs than superclubs. And Kilmacud until recently had the majority of a county to themselves.

After the big meltdown 10 years ago, we were left with all these estates that were left unsold.  Were those houses sold or bought by local authorities for social housing?
No. FG dont do social anything. The REITs bought most of them. The rest will go when nama reduces the prices

Not the Tyrone squad's (some of them anyway) finest hour.
Micky Harte has put the publicity if it to bed fairly quickly.
Certainly not helping the Ulster Council in reaching out etc.

Now maybe Arlene can concentrate on things like her party members supporting burning their neighbours' National flag and people being forced out of their homes by illegal organisations building illegal bonfires beside their houses, intimidation etc etc
Problem there is you are positing the GAA as the opposite of loyalist kulture. Which means when something like this happens you leave the GAA open to that sort of whataboutery.

Silly boys, rat in tbe dressing room, cop on lads. End of
