GAA Discussion / Re: Derry v Dublin All Ireland Quarter Final

Pains me, but derry should have this won a couple of times over. Pints, Nightmare isnt the word for what we are seeing from eoin bradley. Hes not even putting himself about, his marker had time to fall on his ass, get back up and find a dublin player on the over lap, bradly was just standing looking at him.

I read Colm Coyle's interview in the paper on sun and if true, Coyler said that the ref gave everything to tyrone during the game!
Colm still playing th eold mind games and the 'no one likes us' card.
Its part of what has motivated and re-generated meath this year.

IMO Meath were by far the better looking team , still tyrones endurance kept them in it - I am not sure how.
I thought there were three bad decisions regarding frees in the first half that ended up with meath points, with at least one in the second half added to two occasions where Darren fay picked the ball clean off the ground.

In spite of so many dreadful wides (from easier scoring positions imo) by tyrone, they could have won the game which they lets face it - did not deserve based on the entertainment and play during the game.

Meath need to tighten up their defence if they are going to win the All Ireland - which now is not beyond them in a one off game (most likely v kerry), given that cork look like a clueless team and meath should easily get to the final.

Curse those handsome devils! ;D
prob true in both senses !

I mean ...ryan mcmenamin ! :o

Ryan not your type then lynchboy!? :o

I think conor gormley has shown in every game, that hes the best back in the country, from 2-7 he might be the most desired player in the country if he was available for any team to get their hands on him. Surely grounds for an all star this year?

Im not sure that the inside forwards bray and masters should be picked at half forward for any of these best 15 in the country. The roles are completely different. The inside man wins the ball, turns, maybe takes on his man, maybe doesnt and bangs it over (or at least thats the blue print for success). The half forward has so much more to do, and needs to be a more direct runner of the ball, and a winner of scrappy ball. Think geraghty, cavanagh(could be there), and galvin  and so on. It makes no sense to make room for masters and bray at half forward, that wouldnt deliver an all around best 15 performance just my two cents worth.

No creativity up front. Very little fight. Meath much better team. Geraghty still a nasty piece of work.

Understatement to suggest that tyrone need to get their finger out here, still though, only 2 points behind! Come one boys, do it for dinky'n'dooher!

Who says mulgrew is too light for this game, great fisted point after holding off Kevin Reilly. 03-02 meath.

That was some dig by young o'rouke from the sidleline, off the post and away. Tyrone look a little nervous here.

Cork might actually be hard to beat, but not neccessarily a huge threat on the attacking front. You can really only play what is in front of you, and at times, poor quality games result from the quality of one team. The cork backs today were superb, their constant support runs and tyrone-esque defensive play was impressive enough, regardless of the opposition. The midfield will hold their own against a number of teams left, and I for one wouldnt write them off just yet.

Sligo were very poor. Seemed to be no gameplan, or rather a one man forward line that didnt work. Seemed like with 10 minutes even left, sligo players (big name players) had given up the ghost.

Alright, I am not compter illiterate per se, but was just looking in the wrong place. I guess they have upgraded us to a pay per view event. Thank the risen jesus for that. Was almost a long drive to the west coast to find a suitable watering hole that was going to show the game. :D

Kerry mike, I enjoy most of your posts, but I must have had my head in the sandwich bag when the tyrone inside forward line put the shoulder in the monaghan men. I was seated right on the 14 yard line, interestingly watching for any shenanigans. Didnt see it happen. Id flown 6000 miles to watch the game, so I wont admit that at any stage I wasnt watching! I think the tone was set when corey grappled all over mulligan 2 times before the referee even game him a black tick. However, I think it was a hard hitting contest. Monaghan left no stone unturned and just fell a little short. Cant understand how mickey harte (granted, 2 senior all irelands to my none) left conor and gourley so exposed for so long in the second half. 8 points up? Surely the option was to sweep infront of the back two and have monaghan try and claw it back from long range.
Monaghan Kerry could be the tie of the round. Good luck.

Was at the drumquin - greencastle game yesterday. Would completely agree that it was a game of two halves (please resist the temptation to state that most of them are!). As a former drumquin eh, associate - I was dissapointed with the lack of spirit and leadership shown by the wolf tones in the first half, and indeed in the second half outside of a number of key players. In the first half it looked as though drumquin were sitting back admiring the all ireland medals hanging out of the greencastle boys shorts. They played with no conviction and little passion. With the exception of justin walsh at fullback last night, drumquin were poor all over the field in the first half. In the second half, greencastle did seem to take their foot off the pedal and let the tones back into contention. Liam patterson showed exactly the class and drive from his county U-21 days, I just wish he hadnt waited so late in the game. Ryan McCallion worked hard up front, and kicked some tight frees to bring drumquin back within touching distance. It could easily have ended in defeat for greencastle had the drumquin number 8's last minute fisted effort hit the back of the net. Drumquin would have taken a replay, but almost stole it! Second half was almost worth the 7ú admission.  ??? :-[
