GAA Discussion / Re: How do Dublin GAA fend off interest from the AFL?
« on: December 14, 2018, 08:01:44 PM »
Divide the 1.3m population colossus into 4 County teams.

Dublin males 18-33 that play senior Gaelic football you mean.

Another Dublin thread.

One thing that will never happen is a Dublin split.

Just like we never thought we'd see the second chance back door in Gaelic Football or Hurling.

Just like we though we'd never see group stages in the Football Championship.

Just like we thought we'd never see Soccer or Rugby in Croke Park.

Just like we thought we'd never hear God Save the Queen in Croke Park.

Just like we never thought in 2004 that there would be only one other winner of a Leinster title in the next 14 years.

Dublin will be spit. It's inevitable! Money rules the GAA and this is the only way to keep the coffers filled!

Jose fucked up tonight. He put out a weakened team thinking 1st in the group was out of reach when in fact if Utd had won they would of topped the group.

Jose did the correct thing tonight. He left the guts of his team at home in Manchester. They have a big bragging rights game on the weekend and a very busy Christmas schedule ahead.

Watched the game on RTE 2. The constant updates from the PSG v RSB were annoying to say the least. Nobody cared! It was always going to be a shoot out between Liverpool and Napoli! Ronnie Whelan jumped the gun more than a few times giving out about the Referee, when replays showed the Ref was spot on.

Anyway Roll on the weekend.

How can you have an employee of Dublin GAA refereeing this game?

Is Gough working for the Dublin county board?
GAA development officer in DCU and St Pats and runs Cuman Na mBunscol

That a joke. Why did Columbas not object to him referring? He gave everything to Kilmacud Crokes. Is he involved with a club in Dublin?

We had no complaints.
Fair enough. I don't think the GAA should be using referees who have a strong connection to one county like that.

He has reffed loads of games involving Dublin the last couple of years. It's a bit like the Croke Park is a neutral venue argument.

United played well but Fulham were shocking and given the current situation its hard to analyse the performance. Matic looked a lot better to, having someone alongside him like Herrera must help him. Rashford again looked good again whilst Lukaku was very average, he's now admitting he's overweight which we all know.

Dalot was exceptional, looks like he could play in any position;

How does that happen a professional athlete?

Yeah, how does that happen? Here is a professional player who a lot of money is paid to acquire their services and who get reimbursed huge amounts weekly to perform. Is there not experts whose job is to keep an eye on players and their fitness?

Congrats again to today's victors. Massive achievement. What the GAA is should be all about.

looking at the video, you realise the non impact of north Connacht, North Leinster and Ulster in the Hurling Championship. Hurling is a foreign to these parts of the country, they are just spectators.

Jaysus, Utd are 6/1 to win at Anfield next week. Iíd say itís been a long time since they were that price at Anfield ? Would have to be back in the 80ís?

Back in the 80's Man Utd regularly beat Liverpool. Autobiography after Autobiography from Liverpool players from that era tell this story.

He has a head start on a lot of successful managers. Mourhino, Sarri, Wenger? At least McGuiness has played and managed his sport at the highest level. Won't make him any more or less successful but he has, I think, all the attributes to be a top soccer coach.

There are a line of much more experienced people who have played at a decent level or higher that are queuing up for decent Managerial jobs. He is no more ahead of most of them. If anything he is behind them.

As I said - I hope it works out.  I expect him to have a fair rattle at it.

We held off getting 5 so that they stayed in 7th....

If only you had a manager with the bottle for a title run in eh?   ;D

Like a 2 time league winning manager??
Top 4 by new year  ;D ;D

He has won it 3 times. He has won 8 league titles in 4 different countries. He's no dah!

Jez, McGuinness  has taken over a club that is 4 years old, has attendances that would look average in either of the Irish Leagues and ply their trade in the second tier of USA Soccer.

True he has to start somewhere, but he has a long journey still ahead of him. He is nearly 50 years old and I'd say there is a lot of work involved.

I wish him well. But GAA people can lose the run of themselves when it comes to one of their own.
