I come here for ideas on what to watch while I'm waiting for the next Spiral series.

Has anyone watched Braquo?

Who was managing Corofin last year?

Were not Corofin favourites to win the AI months ago? Somebody knew something. What has brought about this huge leap in form? I m not buying it s down to a couple of forwards. Corofin were always solid, dogged and dependable but this is different.

How do the Liverpool fans feel about this persistent 'mea culpa' media front with Rodgers?  Moyes used it time after time following insipid displays when you really wanted to hear him saying '"some players need to realise what club they are playing for and performances of that level are just not good enough".

Ballintubber and Mayo senior clubs in general have plenty to think about after that.
Huge gulf.

How much is down to Rochford as manager? He was passed over for Mayo minor job a couple of years ago.

mayo are producing a lot of the same type of players. Galway is a mystery to me they should be doing way better at county level.

Way better. Natural footballers everyhwere

That Corofin team are much more about pace and power than you're admitting and always have been. Playing to stereotypes there, Indy.

Well they comprehensively beat a team your best couldn't beat.

Is this the same Corofin that Castlebar Mitchels beat in Tuam last year?

Quit your spoofing.

Gregory Campbell is both a bitter, miserable coont and a funny b**tard.

St Brigids made a huge impression in a narrow defeat in the Ulster Club under 16 club final. They lost by two points but were denied victory by a fingertip save for a shot that was heading for the corner of the net - and a minute from the end a goal bound effort that whizzed narrowly wide. In the end it was Burren hanging on for dear life.

St Brigids didn't let Antrim down today - in fact they won the respect of everyone lucky enough to have been there. Both players and management can take a huge bow. Inches away from making it three Antrim clubs out of four years to take home this prestigious trophy.

I wouldn't try to rationalise too much Syf. There's an agenda there.

If kicking the ball was a more effective way of winning football matches then managers would have their teams doing that.

Players are fitter now and can run up and down the field for an hour so it makes sense to retain possession. Kicking the ball is more likely to give the ball away. And the team you kick it away to might not be nice enough to kick it away again.

It s a bit like American football where apart from the quarterback the ball is seldom passed or thrown for fear of a fumble or interception.

It s not a recent development. Back in the 70s Heffo and Micko revolutionised football with better fitness and more handpassing. Some great footballers were throwing balls into the net.

We won t get a kicking game again unless there are changes to rules that would make kicking the ball a more likely way to win.

Limiting or banning handpasses would produce a new game there and then. Making six players stay in opposition half would as well but that produces another problem. Who is going to envigilate that?
 All sports naturally evolve. We ve got the game we have because players have got bigger, faster and fitter and generally better. Modern teams would blow away the teams of 40 years ago.

Hes at it again.. Curry my yogart..  Iwasnt exactly sure what he was on about..  im not an irish speaker  so curry my yogart doesnt ring any bells.. I have less trouble understanding ulster scots..
