Glad to hear things are going well, BH. You’re an inspiration.

If Joe Brolly had used the same colourful language as Tomas O’Se did on RTÉ tonight he would be sacked.  Will O’Se receive the same punishment?  But then one man is fro Derry whilst the other is from Kerry.

He will be getting a memo tomorrow warning him about his behaviour! Who was the woman pundit in the middle?

The usual quota filling female that nobody has clue who it is, ridiculous tokenism from RTE the last few years

They have to include the women ya know, otherwise they’ll have  the ‘burn your bra’ types attacking the RTÉ studios.

I blame that Weinstein bollix

Tom Parsons listed to start for Mayo. Nice to see him back after his injury troubles. He’s a fine player.

Only one married man on the Oughterard team lol.

That must be the secret to winning an All Ireland!

Huge figure who did great work. RIP.

Galway team v Monaghan

Connor Gleeson (Dunmore MacHales)
Johnny Duane (St James)
Sean Mulkerrin (Oileain Arann)
Johnny Heaney (Killanin)
Gary O'Donnell (Tuam Stars)
John Daly (Mountbellew-Moylough)
Cillian McDaid (Monivea Abbey)
Tom Flynn (Athenry)
Cein D'Arcy (Caherlistrane)
Michael Daly (Mountbellew-Moylough)
Paul Conroy (St James)
Mikey Boyle (Killererin)
Robert Finnerty (Salthill Knocknacarra)
Shane Walsh (Kilkerrin-Clonberne)
Adrian Varley (Cortoon Shamrocks)

Not too bad, and picked mainly on current form. No harm to give Gleeson another run to see what's he made of in a proper competitive game. Ditto Mulkerrin and D'arcy. HB line has to start producing the goods. Boyle not good enough and Ml. Daly has to stop going missing in games. With a fair wind behind PJ and against weakened opposition with a new/returning manager also a home win should be well achievable.
Galway will have a task on hand to overcome a grizzled, McKenna cup boot camp, hardened Monaghan.
             Rory Beggan;
Kieran Duffy, Drew Wylie, Conor Boyle;
Ryan McAnespie, Ryan Wylie, Karl O’Connell;
      Darren Hughes, Niall Kearns;
Kieran Hughes, Micheál Bannigan, Dessie Ward;
Conor McCarthy, Jack McCarron, Dermot Malone

Is McManus injured?

While it is easy to gloat at Utd's demise I fail to see what a new manager will do.

LVG & Maureen couldnt fix it and eventually got the road (Jose probably because the players downed tools).

While Woodward and the Glazers have to shoulder some of the blame they have spent plenty of money and still nothing changes.

If there were new owners and they had spent the same amount of money on the similar players what would the difference be?

LVG was an absolute clown. He was found out back in 1998 at Barcelona yet continued to get these big jobs.

Mourinho’s bubble burst while at Real. Football passed him by while there, and he’s been found out since. An absolute egotist, all that matters is him.

Ole will be there until the summer, then I actually think United will go for Gareth Southgate. You heard it here first!

How are officials for club games going to keep track of 2 or 3 players in sin bin?

Worse still, at under age level?!

How was Harry Maguire valued at 80m? I always thought he was average.  He cost more then Van Dijk.  Van Dijk looked quality for a few years before moving to Liverpool, even at Celtic. Maguire scored a few goals against Panama and another minnow in the World Cup and hyped up..

Even Lingard looked good v Panama!

A solid back 3 is needed as a foundation. Liverpool have it with the GK, VVD and that other fella (Gomez?). United don’t. They are weak and vulnerable.

Considering we’ve had a decade now of ultra defensive football, numbers behind the ball and crab football tactics, are we likely to see anything different in the next decade?

Terry Jones Monty Python 77

He was not the Messiah, he was a very naughty boy!


Wasn’t he suffering from dementia?

United started off all right and then conceded a goal from yet another lapse in concentration on a set piece. Correct call to disallow that 2nd goal as DeGea was fouled.  United have probably missed their best chance of scoring with Pereira missing that sitter. I'd still be surprised if this game doesn't finish in a 2 or 3-0 defeat.
You're delusional.

De Gea shown up as a poor keeper again with that. Too easily put off the ball. It wasn’t a foul. Goal should have stood.

As a spectacle today, football is truly in a sorry state. I think Pat Spillane’s description of puke was apt again.
