Not enough football talk on here, so letís get talking about it again.

What was the best goal scored in an All Ireland final?

I donít mean in terms of timing, importance, history etc.... I just mean, as a thing of beauty.


For me, itís hard to decide between Michael Murphy v Mayo in 2012, and John OíDriscoll v Derry in 1993.

A package I have costs £1.40 to send.

1st class stamp is 76p, a 2nd class stamp is 65p. Thatís £1.41 which covers the cost. Can I post with one of each of those stamps, or do I need stamps with the actual monetary value on them?

Was selling a few things on eBay there. Have to send a couple of these, but to be honest, Iíd prefer not to have to go to the post office to do so.

Is there a way of doing it online and throwing it into the local postbox instead, or give it to the postman?

If you have an appropriate  stamp and it will fit in the postbox then fire ahead.

Feck it. Iím a bit short

Two remanded in custody in the north after an audacious heist in Dundalk over the weekend.

Any of these pronunciations are in the ha'penny place when you compare to the Tyrone/Armagh way of saying Hughes

Quze

I donít say it like that and Iím from Armagh.

Donít really follow LOI, so donít know a big pile about Kenny or his achievements. But I have a horrible feeling his appointment will be another nightmare similar to Steve Staunton.

David, I donít think you can just award Liverpool the title and forget about everything else. Yes, they would have won the title anyway, but thereíll always be an asterix next to it, and I donít think even Liverpool fans would be entirely happy with that. If youíre awarding winner, then you need to sort out promotion/relegation/European spots.

If the new season doesnít start in August as planned, theyíre already behind schedule from day 1. If thereís another wave of the virus, the new season might be postponed for another 2/3 months, or longer. Euros are in 2021, so doubt theyíd get 20/21 finished before all that. Thatíd be 2 seasons unfinished. Better to get 19/20 finished up, and look at condensing 20/21... maybe 19 games instead of 38, or scrapping a cup or two.

If say, they abandon 19/20 season and start the 20/21 season in Aug/Sept. But what if thereís another wave of the virus? Youíll have to stop play for another few months, and that could be 2 seasons left unfinished.

Better to complete 19/20 first.

Eddie Large (one half of comedy duo Little and Large) has died from Coronaviris age 78.

Sad to hear. Didnít mind Little and Large back in the day.

Iíd imagine Britain has similar restrictions on funerals as they do here. Terrible to think that if someone dies from this, nobody can even see them laid out. Or not even able to go to the funeral/cremation. God help any family that has to face that. Must be heartbreaking.

Paul Donnelly - the best man ever to lay scoreable balls into Peter Cavavan. If Tyrone had him on the field for the full 1995 final, they would have won it.

Kevin O'Neill - John Maughan inexplicably left him on the bench in 1996. 8 years later he scored two goals in the All Ireland for a much inferior Mayo team.

Greg Blaney.

Ah, Paul Donnelly. Legend. From throwing McCartans boot into crowd in Clones to taking on and holding his own against four Cavan men under the stand at O Neill Park during particularly fractious National League game. Forgotten Tyrone hero these days, but not by fans who watched him regularly. Some player.

All Donnellys career will be remembered for is being given the runaround by James McCartan then throwing his boot away like a spoilt child. He looked like a complete tool that day.

Opinions on how this season is going to be resolved/finished?
Will Liverpool win the league?

So far, the authorities seem determined to finish it, thankfully.

I don't see any reason why they shouldn't, despite what some vested interests are saying. Extend the contracts for a couple of months, take six weeks in July/August/September as necessary, then start next season in early October. Shelf the cups for a season if needed to get next year's league done.

As the pandemic allows it, of course.

Domestic cups might be cancelled for a year. But the big sponsors/UEFA are going to want to play the Champions League. Too much money involved in that to just shelve it for a year.

Set in Belfast.

Not sure what to make of it yet

Caught a glimpse of that

Who was the two hurling team jersies?

Here, has the virus spread to the Aran Islands? Or Clare Island? Thereís a quare wee pitch on Innisturk I think it is, cut out from the rock.

You could play your knock out All Ireland championship on one of those islands. Quarantine the teams on arrival to make sure nobody is infected, then play the championship over a few weeks.

No crowds, islanders only. A feast of football over a few weeks.
