GAA Discussion / Re: Player Opt outs for 2020 season

Graham Reilly, Mickey Burke, Marcus Brennan, Darragh McGovern, Thomas McGovern and Sean Curran won’t be involved with Meath in 2020 for various reasons.

Surprised those two didn't stick around after finally getting back to division 1 but I suppose life gets in the way sometimes.

Darren O'Malley
Colm Lavin
Colin Compton
Fintan Cregg possibly retiring.
May be 1 or 2 others.

Diarmuid Murtagh
I was hoping that rumour wasnt true :-\
His brother obviously not coming back so I take it?

As of now neither will be involved next year unless Anthony can change their minds. Ciaran plans on going to Boston again next summer and Diarmuid just wants a break after a number of injury plagued years. Wouldnt surprise me if Diarmuid followed Ciaran across the water for the summer.
The loss of players/forwards of that quality can't be underestimated. Agurably Roscommon would have reached the All Ireland semi final if Ciarán Murtagh was available this year and might not have won the Connacht final back in June without Diarmuid Murtagh. Which new or newish forward is capable of making an impact like Conor Cox did this summer?

Why is setting ambitious goals still seen as a no-no in the GAA? Have we not grown out of this "ara shure we'll turn up anyway" malarkey?
Malarkey like Jim Gavin talking up the likes of Louth and Wicklow before playing them and saying he  and his players aren't looking past that "challenge"
And Horan, Rochford, etc would say the very same before Mayo hammer Leitrim out the gate.

It is Conor McGregor type managers you want? Tell the opposition they're not fit to be on the same pitch? Or is this just another salty teared effort to have a go at Jim?

Nothing salty, just pointing out to Seanie that the GAA hasn't grown out of the malarkey stuff when even the best manager is at it

Conor McGregor is a over the top gimmick to attract attention and maybe Joyce is doing something simliar at a lower scale to attract bigger Galway support to games.

Half time in the Intermediate Connacht final.

The Neale 0-7 Oughterard 0-7. Plenty of goal chances created in that opening half.

Full Time The Neale 0-11 Oughterard 1-16. Strong 2nd half by the Galway champs. The highly rated Matthew Tierney with the goal.

Switzerland at home to Georgia won 1-0. Goal scored on 76 minutes and the Sky Sports commentator said it was a big goal for the Republic of Ireland, i can hear the cheers from here.  Hmm..

Castlebar Mitchels have announced the appointment of Alan Flynn as their Senior team manager.

Was he involved with Roscommon a few years ago?

None that I know of. Leading Galway to the 2013 All Ireland at U21 level is what he's known mostly for. Was favourite to become Galway Senior manager before P Joyce threw his hat into the ring and he then decided to then pull out of the running

See young Matt Tierney doing very well for Oughterard, will Pauric Joyce be bringing him in to Galway setup for 2020?
Maybe but first he's got another year with  the U20s

A mess no doubt which will likely result in loads of young talented players focusing on something other that GAA.

I'll be surprised if VAR is in place in the PL next season, as said above its a mess and someone at the top should have the sense to get rid of it already.
