I might be reading too much into it, but I genuinely think if Galway show up on Sunday there could be a big enough score in it at the end.

Too much power and strength, not too mention the confidence that last year has evidently given them.

Thing with Galway is that they are so adaptable, they can go long to the edge of the square when required or they can play Whelan out into space. They can play the short game through the mid field and pick off long range scores from there, or Joe can win it and just run out round people and throw it over.

I would love to see Limerick put it up to them and make a real game of it and hopefully they will.

He tried to soften up George O’Connor at the throw in in 1996 and George was having none of it

I think Limerick people being sore about agricultural hurling is a bit rich.

Just on that tagent, I cant remember a dirty blow being struck this year throughout the championship. Think this is one of the reasons the skilful players are flourishing at the moment.
(Maybe the u21 lad with the kick on the Tipp lad  :o)

Good refereeing NAG1, and I'm saying that without my ref hat on but as a supporter.. the under 21 game for me wasnt ref'd well, IMO

Would tend to agree with that, but there is a buy-in from the players to play right to edge but not past it (on majority of occasions)

There are good referees in the football too, difference is most of the players are trying to con him any chance they get.

Anyone make it to Ballycastle yesterday?

Were St Johns that good or were Ballycaslte that bad? Worrying result for the Town men.

The line ball before the goal should have been a Monaghan ball.

Yes that was as clear as day ...very very poor call ...

He was bad for both sides but the big calls went against the Farney county for sure...I can see how they were a bit aggrieved at the end.

To be so close to an All ireland when a better ref might or might not made a massive difference.

McManaus never so much as got a thing of Nolan all day as a previous poster said its as if he didn't like him ...

Think you will find he got a very handy one in the first half, when he played for by stopping his run so the Tyrone man had no where to go. Scoreable free too if my memory serves me right.

Think the most blatant one was Colly Cav toward the end, throwing himself at the Monagahan defender, never was a free and if anything a free out for charging. Definitely would feel agrrieved about that one.

But all being said if Beggan would have held his head and played a pass and worked a chance they could have tied the game up. If he isnt capable of making decisions under pressure why the hell was he out of his goal in the first place. Terrible decision.

Cagey enough start on Friday, nothing surprising about the performance.

Shaw definitely looked in better shape and that is with playing behind Alexis who was giving him plenty to do.

Fred was interesting, looks like he has got all the attributes, just needs to adjust to the pace of the EPL games he got caught on the ball a couple of times but in general impressive enough.

First few weeks are going to be a balancing act for most teams with players coming back tired from WC duty.

Wait till after tonights game at least guys before the personal abuse  :D

Dont think there will be any need for abuse.

I predict a similar season to last, consistent while pragmatic. Expect Liverpool and Spurs to run hot at times and cold at others similar to last year with City off in the distance.

As I said hopefully the shackles come off and he lets the squad at it, just cant see it.

Arlene and co meeting poor Willie ....oh the outrage over ' have you found your daddy'

No outrage over FTP, KAT, effigies of Martin McGuinness in a coffin, Bobby Sands, etc, tricolours, gaa jerseys.

If this is a hate crime, then what is it when the boul Willie calls all of south Armagh republican scum, murderers, and tramps?

Christ lads, with all the attention seeking stunts that Willie has done over the years, finally he is fading into the background of irrelevance and what do these eejits do? Push him right back to the forefront and give him some kind of legitimacy.

I would love local nationalist communities to totally reject these bonfires and stand up to those who think that they are a good idea.

We look down our nose at the 11th night bonfires and rightly so but then we have a crowd wanting to ape them, we cant have it both ways.

This is not Kulture.

Is Div 2 two up and two down ?

Yes

I would prefer to see the leagues be one up and one down. It makes the whole thing too fluid from season to season. As long as there is no further tinkering to the leagues, one up and one down would work ok I think. Any thoughts?

I'd vote for that..  ;)

Seriously though there's not a whole pile wrong with 2 up two down as it gives a lot more to play for at the bottom of Div1 and the top of Div2 and so on and so forth.

Although I did hear of a St Galls player joking that they needed to lose a few games in case they got promoted!!

Pretty much sums them up.

Feck aff NAG! Thats an interesting thought NAG about how you think of us at St Galls. Must remember that

Tell me I am wrong MR2, a club with talented hurlers for the past 10/15 years yet, unwilling or unable to put the effort in so happy to be where you are div 2 where you can be comfortable, nobody pushing you too hard in the comfort zone so to speak.

Should be more than capable of being competitive in div 1 with a bit of work.

You’re wrong, we are a dual club with a knack of winning football championships and that’s were a lot of our kids seem to favour.

 We don’t have the fortunate position of concentrating solely on hurling. Now if you’d have asked someone on this thread who knows something about St Galls hurling, you’d get a proper reply, Johnny jokingly put his post up.

 I was chatting to a senior player the other day and said ‘we are in danger of going up!’ But in all seriousness I asked are you going to give it another last as the vast majority are 33,34 years old! We’ve about 4 younger lads but outside of our best 15, we’d struggle. Be couple years before we bring anything to senior.

But the lads on the team are winners, there’s no danger that when they step over the line they are looking to lose, nor is Culbert who’s managing them would be looking for also

My point wasnt solely down to Johnny's jokey comment, it is more of a malaise really and I agree with you on the age profile of the squad. My point is that the same type of attitude existed when these guys were in their mid-twenties.

I get the dual club aspect and I know there is a push back on there with the football, but point is still valid that maybe the eye went off the ball for a while in the development if only 4 younger lads are now on the squad.

It's a difficulty across the city unfortunately. Wasnt a lament aimed solely at St Galls.

This is my favourite bit from the article . . .

Quote
Unlike his first two seasons in Manchester, Mourinho stopped noticeably short of talking up United as potential champions but his spikiest moment, presumably with Liverpool in mind, was directed towards the media for “making people that finish second look like they were relegated and people who win nothing, finishing below us, look like serial winners”.

Looking forward to another season of mediocrity at the theatre of w**ks!!

Been saying consistently for over a season now, Liverpool and Spurs talked up during the season and United finish ahead of them. JM isnt popular with the media Poch and Klopp are so they get all the positive press and Utd get the negative, in years gone by SAF would have turned this into the perfect recipe for squad unity and success. It just doesnt seem to be gelling for JM or the squad.

As has been pointed out, name me a realistic successor at the moment and I would consider it, I dont see one anywhere, so just have to hope that the shackles come off a bit this season and he lets the team go for it, because when he does they are a match for anyone in the EPL.

I dont think there was anything majorly wrong with the squad, yes it could be improved in certain areas, but by no means did it need a major overhaul. A centre back would have been priority. That being said if he cant get a workable partnership between Bailiy, Rojo, Jones & Smalling then maybe says more about his coaching than the standard or player he is working with.

I am excited to see Fred actually and I think he could be the key to allowing Pogba to keep his WC form going.

Martial pissed off and playing for an exit route might not be a bad thing, with the other attacking options hopefully all contributing.

Everyone is behind City and if they dont win the leage this year it will be through their own faults most likely.

There is none. If you're fouled and the refs plays advantage I'm not aware of any caveat that allows the fouled player to foul himself without punishment.

There is no caveat in the books, but most refs (rightly or wrongly) allow that extra couple of steps to the player being fouled.

I dont think O'Donnell's goal was the worst example of over carrying we have seen in this season never mind over the past few.
