Iím sure there will be figures that United will put out to justify an asking price of 100m+. 

Good to see the back of Pogba, plenty of talent, but has a shitty attitude in my opinion.  With Madrid forking out 300m+ already who else would be in for him?

GAA Discussion / Re: Cavan v Donegal Ulster Final

Having watched both the semi finals over the weekend I would take Donegal to clinch this one, they controlled the game throughout although Murphy won't get it as handy in and around the middle this time. 

Cavan fully deserved winners against Armagh, but Armagh were turning the screw on them at certain points throughout the match and if Donegal have the same opportunities they will do more harm than Armagh in my opinion. 

It should be a good show piece for what has been a great Ulster championship so far.

Observations on the game:
Again Armagh cannot seem to dominate a team and put a game to bed.

The ref was inconsistent with his decision making throughout for both teams.  Both teams can feel hard done by for some but not all decisions.  The game might be getting to fast for 1 man in the middle to handle. 

Grimley trying to kick the ball, I think he made a genuine attempt at that, and leaving a stray foot out he is lucky nothing worse happened him. 
Its refreshing to see two young hungry players stepping up to the plate and taking the burden of responsibility for the team in Burns and OíNeil.  Both again stood out and look well beyond their years. 

Mackay is a class act and a great player to watch, always seems to make the correct decision and hungry to get on the ball, he turned the game in my opinion.
Now that both teams know what each other is about, not sure how next week is going to fair out.  I doubt Burns will have the impact in the middle he did yesterday, and I doubt Reily is going to be as quiet next time out either. 

As mentioned on the tv, Ulster has delivered some cracking games so far.

I heard Murnin is still injured and his appearance the last day was a last roll of the dice for McGeeney, which makes sense saying he came on in extra time and not normal time.  I would be surprised if him and Cambell was not a straight swap.  Surprised Shields isnít starting either, but again a great option from the bench when tired legs are kicking in, he can drive the team on. 

Hopefully Grimley is down to start also, as free kicking is vital for Armagh if they have any hopes of winning. 

Very tight to call, havenít seen a lot of Cavan bar the Monaghan highlights.  If they are up for it as they were that day, Armagh could be in trouble.

I lolíd at the part ďShe alleges the hotel was negligent because the swing was "unsupervised" and there were no signs to instruct patrons how to use it safely.Ē

If she doesnít know who to use a swing, its her parents she should be suing.

Hoping Armagh learnt from the Down game and if they get the chance to take control of the game they take it.  Be interesting to see who lines out where, as a few players put their hands up to be noticed, and a few seemed to have buckled. 

Would have this as a 50/50 to be honest.

Watched the deferred coverage without knowing the score.  Armagh need to learn how to put the foot on the throat and press down when presented with the chance. 

All credit to Down, Mooney is undoubtably their key man and players could have dropped their heads but dug deep to grind out the draw in normal time, and indeed lead in extra time.  Although they were beaten, Down will take away a lot more from this game than Armagh in my eyes. 

Regarding the goalkeeping situation, the second choice goalkeeper got injured a few days prior to the match, hence why OíNeil was down as the number 16, nothing more in that.  Heard the rumour that a player was approached to do nets also who would usually play FF.  Apparently he had goalkeeping experience from underage, and its not uncommon for outfield players to jump into nets, after all does Hughes not play outfield for his club??

Regarding the team selection, I can only assume players have been in the first 15 based on form and not merit, hence the omission of Campbell, Morgan and co.  I thought Grugan was poor enough yesterday and throughout the year tbh.  He may be more useful as an impact sub, but his staring place has to be questioned and the team needs to be cutthroat. 

Armagh now have two weeks to right the wrongs of yesterday and prepare for Cavan.  The team has the most potential it has had in 15 years, it would be a shame if it was not fulfilled.

I believe Grimley played 2 matches for Madden, so there's another one quoted that is wrong.

Id say you would be safer leaving a review on google or trustpilot rather than a thread on the gaa board

Yea thatís fair enough, would love to see them go up as outside of Armagh, there probably the team from Ulster I would want to see do well. 

I suppose a real measure of where Fermanagh are would boil down to how they fair against the top top teams, but I would imagine a trip to division 1 next year would be counter productive and could imagine they would win to many games if any, just my opinion though. 

We will see how they fair out in the remaining three games, two tough games at the end to round the league off, if they canít beat Armagh or Meath, I would stand by my theory they would not survive going up.

Football and how it should be played is a game of opinion.  Fermanagh GAA have backed Gallagherís opinion to get them to where they want to be so if they go to Division 1 fair dues, it is on their merit and their system which they believe works best for them. 

But to be totally honest, I think Division 2 is the best place for them though.  It is competitive and no disrespect to them but I think they would be getting tanked every week in Division 1.  To be totally honest, outside of Donegal with a more complete panel, I would say all Division 2 teams wouldnít fair to well in Division 1.

I would say if BR was turned into a mini-series with the same cast and more R rated it would have had time to get things correct and accurate. 
For all intensive purposes, they had to condense some of the major points of his life into a 2 hour film which was never going to fully work.  Hugely enjoyable all the same.

All joking aside, what constitutes a good season for Armagh this year? A decent string of results in the league? An ulster final appearance? Super 8 appearance?

And vice versa what do the Tyrone fans think is a good year for them? All Ireland potentially after last year?

A bit of perspective here, just like a good tabloid you seem to be cherry picking from the full story. 

McGeeney said he would prefer the super 8ís than beating Down.  I would agree, as good as winning 1 gave in ulster in 5 years would be, getting away to play a few bigger teams at the tail end of the championship is where all teams want to be. 

He is also acknowledging that Dublin Tyrone and Mayo are leading the pack in terms of where teams are at all round (players, preparation, conditioning and that) and he thinks they are they are not near that standard but getting there bit by bit.   

And what Campbell is saying is true also, Murnin and Ethan Rafferty where sure fire starters last year and were playing brilliant football, but they are going to get it tough to get a place in the team.  If anyone watched the ulster club they will know the quality the 2 OíNeil players have, Clarkeís pedigree speaks for itself, and Campbell himself if he is fit can be quite good.

I would say Armaghís team are twice as good as last year and they were punching well above their weight, so I suppose there is some optimism floating about for the first time in a long time.

Persevere with it BennyCake, I was similar at the beginning watching it, but although itís the type of show they donít make anymore.  Iíve finally gotten around to Better Call Saul and find it to be stacks better IMO. 

Also finished off the sinner season 2, very good watching for a weekend binge.
