Took a wee while to get into a rhythm but when they did I thought Armagh played rightly.  Very impressed with their work rate all over the park, especially in the 2nd half.  Kildare couldn't match it.

Frustrating at time with sloppy passes.  I'm not sure the conditions can account for this.  Rian was at fault for a couple of these... in saying that though his kicks from the ground against that wind were a joy.

Could and should have had a number of goals.

Never a second yellow for Clarke.

The White House Farm show is def an interesting watch on ITV.  I'm not old enough to have remembered this case in the news at the time so it's all a bit new to me.  Horrible what went on there.

Stephen Graham with a Welsh accent in this one.

Anyone on the board had anything published that we could rip to shreds?  ;)
Be my guest. Google "The Little Book of Mayo" by the History Press.

I see someone has already been at the abuse on Amazon.  You cant win 'em all!

Ray Donovan cancelled, would have thought it would have been popular enough. Really enjoyed it.

Serious! I'm only about 4 into the latest series. Might not bother if there isn't gonna be a proper conclusion.

Lloret de Mar, Costa Brava ?? Camping Cala Canyelles,   1st time there,  and with 2 children?

I don't know that camping but Lloret is an awful hole altogether.

Go to Tossa instead. Can highly recommend Camping Cala Llevado

Agree with that. I had a brutal experience there and was only away with the lads for a stag fs!

Rode our luck a good bit but what a feeling nicking a late winner. The whole world is starting to see what every villa supporter already knew years ago. Grealish is a class act. Unfortunately he has probably outgrown the club and will more than likely leave in the summer. We can only enjoy him while he's still here.

It's great to have a final to look forward to but then you are brought back down to earth with the prospect of facing City  ;D

Hes over 6 foot and well built, if he was a slender 58 19 year old you might have a point. So in a word no.
Doesn't matter what size he is, and it shouldn't be used against him.  A foul is a foul.

100%

Aidan O'Shea used to get some amount of treatment in FF when deployed there in the big games years ago.  Couldn't buy a free.  The narrative was always sure he's big enough to take it.

I'd estimate 3k at most in the Hyde.
Probably 50 from Laois!

Would have been 51 but LL was watching his boys hang on against Shrewsbury :D
any attendance from the Armagh game Benny?

4,466

I was surprised at this.  I thought there were more than that there.  Does that include non paying under 16s?

A good performance by Armagh and a nice league debut by young Turbo.  Some of the long range points in the first half with the wind were a joy to watch.  At half time I didn't think the game was dead and buried though.  Cavan were causing problems running through the middle.  That's a real worry for the games to come.  The goal early in the second half killed it as a contest.

The amount of times Cavan fouled Armagh on transitions was unreal.  Finally this began to be punished correctly.

A word for my club man Soup.  We can sometimes be his harshest critic but I think that's one of the best performances he has ever put in for Armagh.  He covered every single blade of grass on the night, tackling throughout and still popping up with some quality when needed.

Bigger tests ahead.

GAA at their work too again I see. Cant buy any more tickets for the Armagh match online and very few places nearby that do prepaid tickets (none in Lurgan that I know of).  19 quid it is then. Joke.

Why would they limit the amount that be bought online?

I'm after buying one now, according to Armagh twitter they are available until noon tomorrow.

Cheers.  Got them printed off ok there.

I would be surprised if Armagh go up.  I just don't think they are defensively sound enough.  Also, if they haven't yet sorted their inability to hold onto a lead then they could again be in the mix at the bottom end.
