5. Eoghan McLaughlin - Westport
6. Michael Plunkett - Ballintubber

Midfield and forwards look fairly good considering our absentees but a very inexperienced backline.

Am I missing something in the economics talk here?

Firstly - I thought SFís manifesto was costed by the Department of Finance and they concluded that when their numbers were run that a budget surplus was still expected?

Secondly - what is the acceptable right/centre-right way of raising the funds to fix the housing, homelessness and housing crises? As I see it you can either tax, borrow or ignore the problem - those are your choices. So assuming you canít ignore it, and you donít want to add to the astronomical  national debt, then presumably youíll raise the funds via tax. If thatís your conclusion then surely you want to tax progressively (I.e. richest pay the most) and is that not how SF have proposed to fix these problems?

SF want to abolish property tax, one of the most progressive tax mechanisms we have. They also don't say where that shortfall will be made up in terms of local authority funding.

While Cliffords red card was disgraceful arguably the worst decision of the weekend went almost unnoticed. Meath should have had a penalty in the first half when they were denied a goal by a blatant foot block by I think Oíconnor. RTE didnít even show a replay of the incident but Iíd recorded it and itís actually a blatant and dangerous foot block.

The Meath player never actually kicked the ball so it wasn't a foot block.

If and when Kevin McLoughin retires from Mayo, they should put an asterisk next to him name for this game.
1-2 was his tally, in last seven minutes against a gale , it was also Mayoís total tally for the second half.
Unless Mayo improve from 10-15, they will find it hard to get any more points in this division.
But a win is win.........

He turned over the Meath back in the lead up to the goal too. Got out of jail big time. Tyrone and Galway winning doesn't help our cause so relegation still a big threat.

Cavan/Monaghan 1
Louth 2
Laois/Offaly 1.
Dublin 8

Iím a little unsure of how things work for tier two championship, if ros were relegated and failed to reach Connacht final would that mean they are tier two for championship?

Yes

Thought there were some positives for us last night but the game was over after we lost a man. O'Hora was very good again as was Plunkett. We'll need him to kick on if Boyle is out for a while. Oisin Mullin I presume is gone with the U20s next weekend and it says a lot that he'll be a big miss for the seniors vs Meath.

Coen and Diarmuid did well in midfield considering the 2 guys Dublin had there. Aidan O'Shea also had a strong 1st half but we'll need a full game out of him next weekend.

Our freetaking problems appeared again unfortunately. I'd probably start Loftus against Meath for the close range ones and let Diarmuid take the rest. When it was 15 v 15 we gave some good long kickpasses into the full forward line. That's one thing Jordan Flynn does well. James Carr won pretty much every ball that went in. I'd like to see him and Tommy Conroy start next weekend.

Is he more famous than the Louth fan in 2010?

Nice to steal a draw last night, makes up for pissing away the Galway game 2 weeks ago. Scoreline flattered us at half-time needless to say. Donegal were cleaning up around midfield, partly due to Clarke's kickouts but also Tom Parsons being off the pace of the game. Flynn looked lost in midfield too, was much more prominent in the 2nd half when he was moved to half forward.

2nd half was much more evenly matched. Aidan O'Shea made a big difference in midfield, always seems to play well against Donegal. Conroy and Durcan made a big impact off the bench while McLoughlin took his frees well (fair play to him for continuing to take them despite his history).

Of the new lads I thought Mullin was very good, he has blistering pace. You can tell he's going to be a player considering he's only 19. Padraig O'Hora can be very happy with his showing. Flynn and O'Donoghue mixed the good with the mediocre but they deserve another shot against Dublin. Bryan Walsh didn't really get into the game apart from his well taken point. We seemed to be slipping a lot on the surface for some reason.

Our efficiency in front of goal was the biggest positive though. Watched the game back this morning and I think we only had 4 wides in the whole game and no shots dropped short (unless Carr's goal counts as one?  ;) ). We get plenty of stick when missing chances so might as well praise them this time.

Decent enough side although fairly inexperienced (7 starters from the Dublin game I think?)

Looking forward to it all starting again

6 by my count. Clarke didn't play that game while Parsons only came off the bench.

Game over now.  Why have tg4 the black card symbol on the screen still?

Because his 10 mins are not up yet.


It's the old black card rules for this game, so a substitution instead of a sin bin
