Lar, that's a lot of nonsense and you know it. Il address those points later as some of us actually work in Dublin.... unlike our GAA players what..... will all the time off and money they have.

The obsession continues.

The bitter truth for many is that no matter how shit Drumpf is doing, a large number of Americans think Clinton would have been worse.

I see we still have the narrative "Galway were awful" .......

Fast forward to the week leading up to your next game and the narrative will be Roscommon were brilliant.

Galway were awful.


Roscommon will be underdogs unless by some miracle Cork beat Mayo, so you really scored an own goal with that response.

The usual narrative is when a big favourite lose it's because they underperformed rather than them being prevented performing. It's lazy journalism, punditry and supporter commentary but no one should be taking it seriously in the first place.
Mayo will probably tank Roscommon for lèse-majesté.
You can take Ros out of Connacht (every decade or so) but you can't take Connacht out of Ros.

Is Lukaku going to be any better than Zlatan was last year? If anything it's likely he'll be doing well to match his contributions. I really don't see much to be getting excited about when all they've done is downgrade up front and added a center half that was signposted since January, defense was hardly the team's problem last year. Eric fúckin' Dier, a lad who isn't a first choice midfielder for Spurs is the answer in the middle? Ed Woodward and Jose must be smoking some strong ganja..

Your view is a bit simplistic Zlatan was brought in last year as a short term fix as neither Martial or Rashford were ready to lead the line (still aren't) and good and all as Zlatan was he was very static  and Utd as a result were regimented and easy to defend against. Lukaku mightn't perform as well as Zlatan but may allow 3 or 4 other United players to  flourish in ways they didn't last season. Dier and/or Matic aren't signings that set the heart racing but one of them, if that's who United are after, will release Pogba and Herrera up the field where they do better work. It's not always the 'sexy' signings that work out the best you know.

So how do you account for the Kerry team of 75-86 Lar?

Beating everybody out of sight and rampaging through Munster?

I can see why Morata turned them down in favour of Chelsea.
