Also, if Gordon isnít active for at least 10 games this season , then the Browns have to give the Pats back a 7th rounder. Absolute steal for the Pats and to me , in their current predicament, an absolute no brained. Very little downside , and huge upside.

I just think he has missed too much time the last few years, no training camp either this year. I donít think the Pats will be expecting much


His locker is beside Tom Brady so I'd say they're going to give hime every chance.

The too and froing on this lately must all be gestering. A deal must be close at this point.

But the key questions are...
Does May need a deal before the Tory party conference? Or does un unconfirmed deal actually help her?
Is she likely to survive it without (or with) one?
What does Boris have planned there?

Will she get said deal through Parliament?
Brexit group will rebel, will the Remainers also?
Will Labour back her deal? Will they force her to a referendum on the deal?

Sligo County Board wish to announce that former County player and Under 21 Manager Paul Taylor has been recommended by the Selection committee to be the new Sligo Senior Football Team Manager.

He will be recommended to Club delegates at next Mondayís County Board meeting for ratification.

Paul Taylor hails from the Eastern Harps Club with whom he won 6 Senior County titles.He played for 14 seasons for Sligo and was the countyís most prolific forward during the 1990s.

He was involved with Kevin Walsh as a selector on the Senior team which lost out to Roscommon in the 2010 Connaught Final.

And in his own right he went on to manage the County Under 21 team narrowly losing out to Galway in the 2017 Connacht Final

He is very familiar with the local GAA scene and is keenly aware of the potential of the current senior squad having worked with many of them as County Under 21 Manager.

Joe Taaffe Chairman of the Selection committee stated that the process to appoint a new Senior Team Manager was very challenging given the number of Managerial vacancies that existed compounded by various factors around travel and work commitments for those who considered the position.

He went on to say that during the 7 week process which started on Friday 3rd August,the Selection committee had spoken to 9 potential candidates in a far reaching and exhaustive effort to find a new incumbent for the role.

He further pointed out that the process had to be confidential as many of the candidates had other roles/commitments and responsibilities and their privacy had to be respected.

The Selection committee felt it was appropriate to issue an interim announcement during the process when Eamon O Hara withdrew from the field given his change of circumstances and the Selection committee wish to acknowledge Eamonnís co Ė operation in that regard.

In conclusion he stated that he hoped all Sligo Gaels would now get behind a new local Manager and help him to build a new Sligo Senior team in the years ahead.

Paul Taylor will be announcing his full backroom team in the coming weeks which will comprise of two local selectors and a new face to the Senior set up in Coach Joe Keane (Mayo).

Keane is new to the Senior set up in Sligo and comes with a solid pedigree having won an All Ireland Club Senior medal with Crossmolina in 2001.He then went on to coach the Mayo Under 21ís to All Ireland success in 2016 and in the past two years has been involved in the Mayo Senior backroom team working alongside Donie Buckley.

Finally Sligo County Board would like to thank all those who considered the role and thank them for their time and interest and wish Paul Taylor and his management team every success

Paul Taylor for Shligo I hear.
We must be still talking to Bohan. No word on who clubs might have nominated but I'm sure Nigel was anyway.

Has anyone ever gone to a game in Dortmund or Madrid or similar? Looking to book a flight/hotel/ticket package or even buy all 3 separate . Just wondered if anyone has done this and what way you went about it or who you booked with. Will be 4 of us going. Dortmund would be my preference but some of the others are saying Madrid.

Those are 3 different personalities completely.
Cavanagh strikes me as a gurnin bastid of the highest order.
He has little or no loyalty too; only out of that Tyrone setup a wet weekend and already mouthin off about everythin.
He has literally scattergunned all areas; Catholic Church & the GAA, Mickey Harte, Mental Health, gamesmanship and abuse in games.
Mighty mighty player but i think Joe Brolly may have been right.

Not often we agree but +1

You are one bitter Armagh man. Pity you canít get 03 and 05 out of your head after all these years.
