I was very happy FOD wasn’t yer manager, Sligoian. Working with a young inexperienced panel is his bread and butter and would have probably made Sligo likely to upset one of the top three in the province in the next few years.

Brian Kerr seems to get crankier every time I hear him.

Amazing how confederate flags and bible-thumping evangelical nutcases with huge signs are allowed at GAA matches, but Palestinian flags aren't.

That's harsh. Poor auld John 3:7 is a sound lad.

I saw a few Palestinian flags in the Gaelic Grounds for the Limerick - Tipp Match, and again in Cork for the Cork Limerick game and I don't think anyone was removed, so I'm not sure if a directive came out specifically for the Tyrone Meath game because those flags are more prevalent in some Ulster games.

I’ve heard a lot of stories about John 3:7 being a bit of a thoughtless twat with his antics actually, AZ. I can only imagine being stuck behind him at a match.

Russia haven't exactly beat 2 superpowers of world football.

That's not remotely the issue . . . they've run further than any other team in the competition by a good way and as Dinny says they probability is that other teams are juicing as well. Not that the World Cup needs to be any more farcical but this adds to it!

The WC is farcical now? Righto, Sarg.

Let myself down by trying to minimise it?
What, in the ever loving name of Christ, are you on about now?

“Fuss”

Who actually decided this was an issue in the first place?
It's being going on for years, predominantly at games involving the Dubs or Ulster teams.
Or is this just natural progression from the fuss we saw over the Confederate flag being waved at Cork games.

The Confedrate flag is an abhorant thing to be waving publicly in any capacity Jinxy, don’t let yourself down by trying to minimise it because you think some head-the-balls in Cork don’t have the sense to know basic facts of history.

HQ need to stand their ground on this one. A very small but very loud minority support this politicising of the games. It remains incredibly distasteful to me that these people use the Palestinian cause as a prop to further their own selfish ends.

If anyone wants to pretend that all but a few of these people have any real interest in their plights and it isn’t yet another attempt to try to wind up unionists in the north, cop on. Creating divisions rather than trying to bridge them, even in sport.

At least Mo will be fresh for the new season

Ya reckon? He looks like he’s holding back, I thought he’d be fine but knowing that type injury well from personal experience he probably came back too soon, understandable but his pay masters wouldn’t be too pleased

 

If he’s able to set foot on a field at the WC he’s going to be fit for fûcking Huddersfield in August..


you’ve suffered an injury like Salah’s? It’s not just the physical side of it, mentally you are wondering about the next tackle. I hope for Liverpool’s sake he is

If you think the Russians haven’t given him a lot of wallops into that shoulder today you haven’t been watching the same match as the rest of us.

Russia for Sam.
More chance of Russia winning it than Roscommon

Are Laois still in the championship? Seriously, though, I don’t take any notice of them at all. I hope the 50 of ye that care about football are doing well.

On what planet should a team at Armagh’s level be overlooking Sligo at Marky Park? It’s definitey not this one.

Presumably one where Sligo's home pitch is not referred to as "Marky Park"

You’re not from Connacht are you, ladeen? :-X

Not meaning to be disrespectful but I'm not expecting much from Sligo. There is nothing in the form book that indicates that they offer much.

It's a bloody track to get to and the throw in time in conjunction with the 5.00 throw in in Enniskillen and the travelling Down support. But that aside it's a good draw for us.

I agree that a hammering could be on the cards for us down the line but we need walk before we can run.

I don't think isolating the 2 big men at Full Forward is the best option for us and Rafferty's injury probably means we will have to do things a little differently

On what planet should a team at Armagh’s level be overlooking Sligo at Marky Park? It’s definitely not this one.

Second would be a great place for England to end up in this group.

There's a real chance of the draw opening up for them.

They should be able to stroll through the rest of the group without much pressure and a draw against Belgium for a second place finish would do them fine.

There's nothing particularly intimidating in Group H as regards possible last 16 ties.

Colombia would be tricky opponents but they're beatable. I'd fancy England against Poland or Senegal. If Mexico win Group F, there's a big chance England could reach a semi-final by going that route.

They have what a lot of teams in the tournament don't have - an out and out striker who is in-form.

Brazil, France, Spain, Portugal and Belgium have that too.

Who is Brazil's in form out and out striker? Jesus is not in form and doesn't look up to it. Firmino is not currently first choice, is not an out and out striker and is at his best by doing the donkey work to create space for others.

As for Belgium's, he folds when the going gets tough.

Has Harry Kane even won any trophies?
