I see all the teams from the higher division won the play off games, playing against higher level opposition every week def gives teams an advantage, what was the reasoning for the 2 legs both at neutral venues? Found that strange, either 2 legs with a home and away or a one off at a neutral ground. Maybe next year theyíll tweak it a bit

Everyone enjoy the footie yesterday chaps? Sat back and watched in Ultra HD  ;D Not sure if the internet providers had any blocks in force yesterday - i ensured the VPN was switched on so no disturbance through the day

General, id been using an app on firestick, bought it pre loaded, doesn't work any more, think it was Morph TV or something. if you could PM me any apps and providers i could download that'd be great,

the tyrone team thats been named for tomorrow is enough reason to bin the super 8s, championship is about winning not fulfilling fixtures, its the business time of the season

Toy Story 4. More of the same but just as enjoyable. 7/10

Is it me or has there been a dearth of really good movies this past year?

TV series seem to be killing the movie quality.  I am looking forward to the new Tarantino one though.

do you think its a case that movies are now seen as too long for the younger generations? People dont have the attention spans anymore so 45/50 min segments are long enough to keep people engaged. as you say all the money seems to be pouring in to series as opposed to films, wonder is it a sign of things to come

Attendance looks....sparse.

Dublin fans are saving their money for the 5, 6 and 7 in a row finals! Brolly looking for the Hurling to save face with a double header.

Usually feel Brolly talks rubbish but he has a point with regards to the cork supporters being dragged to Dublin 2 days in a row, especially this evening for the footballers, a double header would have worked well I think

Personally I think itís a good idea, currently the provincial championships are done end of November or so, then waiting over 8-9 weeks, quiet Christmas etc training etc  with little game time for a semi final, far too much of a gap, letís try it and see how it goes, also frees all club players up for the county before national league with a break between club and county commitments

2,122 capacity.

does preference go to the GAA season ticket holders for each county? like if Kildare had 1500 season ticket holders would they get preference over Antrim supporters?

Themac23, sure the league is effectively meaningless, as in nobody really is bothered if they win it or not. And if the provincial cíship is a stand-alone Competition, it effectively becomes meaningless too.

Also, the team in the preliminary round. Do you think theyíd seriously bust their balls 4 weeks running to win a meaningless Ulster? And kn**ker themselves for the main competition?

I understand where youíre coming from with regards to teams not busting themselves for 4 weeks before a main competition but effectively thatís where we are at the min anyway, the provincial championship is effectively just a safety net for the big counties, for example Mayo getting beaten last night I still fully expect to see them in the super 8s. But nobody can tell me they enjoyed that Antrim game, we had 13 behind the ball when 10pts down, was complete damaged limitation from the start, to me thatís not football. Play teams at your own level thatís how to progress. Itís one issue that seems to totally divide, I know people who like myself are all for it and also people who are dead set against it but I think it is something needs really looked at

As an Antrim man Iíd actually be in favour of a tiered system 100%  that pissed me off tonight, not the hammering as much as the commentators constantly giving Antrim a pat on the head Ďah sure theyíre a div 4 team, fair play the lads kept trying hard and didnít let their heads dropí its bullsh*t let our players play at a level where they are competitive and can get silverware not just a pat in the back and keep up the good work.

Condense the county season, do away with Mckenna cup etc, play provincial championship before the league over 4/5 week period, hit the league as a straight format no semi finals etc then hit a 2 tiered championship whatever way they want to do champions league format or whatever.

People talk about lack of interest poor crowds etc, 1 idea is play all double headers seeing as the minor games arenít on before senior games, have the B game on before the A game and if they want to boost the numbers to look good on tv etc have an incentive like if youíre in for the first game your 2 kids get in free, there are ways but the gaa really needs to do something soon.

Finished season 3 of Gomorrah last night, easily one of the best things Iíve watched, even with the subtitles itís really gripping. I remember watching the first season and thinking how raw it was, after looking into it there was a good reason, bar 4-5 main characters a lot of the parts were played by actual young lads who were caught up in that world in Naples and it really shone through, great show Iíd highly recommend it and looking forward to the next season

Karamoko Dembele - Just seen a 2 minute highlight reel of him from yesterday. 16 Years of Age - may have been playing against a tin pot team but he certainly looked the part. Explosive pace and flair. Def one for the future!

Unreal, looks like he will be a great talent, looking forward to him getting a chance in the next few seasons, crazy that professional footballers can play at that age yet in GAA lads cant

Just wondering if there is any Celtic fan outside of Lurgan (and even inside of it) that still thinks Lennon should be given the job......

If it was between the Armagh ginger and Moyes I'd have to say yes

Why would you give the job to someone who got binned by hibs over someone who in his last job took a west ham side headed for relegation and kept them up, or who got an Everton side playing great football to a champions league place? suppose the usual 'look at his utd team' argument, but he was never going to succeed there, he was always being used as a buffer between SAF and the next 'big' manager. hes 100 times the manager lennon is
