GAA Discussion / Re: Mayo v Armagh- Round 3 Qualifier
« on: June 24, 2019, 01:43:11 PM »
Should be a good game. The game against us in Portlaoise was needless to say the highlight, the only highlight, of last Summer. Both teams then were very open at the back which made for a high scoring game in 27 degree heat. Based on the score Armagh conceded against Cavan, you would have to say that is still a big issue. Against an attacking team like Mayo that commands a lot of possession, that could again lead to a big score conceded. Armagh began the season at around the same level as Down, but based on Monaghan result those games have likely brought them on, so should be close enough at the end. Extra time would not surprise.
definitely think if our injuries clear up armagh have a  good chance, we are playing a nice style of football which while somewhat open at the back allows our forward line to express themselves.
agreed subject to the referee it should be a good open game.
armagh by 3 8)

Tough draw for us, Armagh are improving while we look to be waning. They'll fancy their chances of taking down a "big" team here I'd say.

Have we ever played in championship before?
armagh have more than a punchers chance, we played well last week and Mayo will play a style that suits us.
dont be surprised if we pull off a shock.
although we need Murnin and Grimley fit

I see Ciaran Branagan from Down is the ref, As refs go I think he's good, though you wouldn't need much of a ref to spot the fouls in the Armagh tackling.
tbf Main Street Monaghan are privy to the old sneaky fouling as well.
Brannigan is fine as a Ref though he should spot both sides at the dark arts.

I expect this to be the dirtiest game of the championship by a long shot. A minimum of 5 red cards.
good for you.

mainstream reporting of teh monies coming into Dublin isdefinitely going to start putting pressure on Central Council to realise that the dublin monopoly on funding is killing football.

Happy enough for Monaghan to get Armagh in Clones, Armagh look to be in better shape than us, still, as it stands now it's hard to see either side getting through the next round.

6.25% chance of this being the draw the teams ended up with. Initially I thought it was the worst possible draw but now Iím coming round on it. Win and itís a sign of progress, loose and the pressure might become too much on an already beleaguered manager. Iíd rather a game like this than a handy draw to round 4 or beyond where we might have received some tankings.
tbf am content with this draw as well, if we cant beat them( and i am not sure Armagh can ) then we are better off out of it as other teams will give us a trimming down the line.

The players lined up for the throw in, McVeety put out his hand to shake hands with Morgan and got a shoulder to the chest for his troubles so Dara gave him a few shoves in return. Morgan then fouled McVeety trying to go through him on the ground and Cavan got a score from the free. Then in response to more pulling and dragging off the ball Dara pushed him and Morgan pushed Dara in the face, inexplicably got a yellow and he got moved off him and then subbed when it was clear he was a walking liability. And of course you go to the umpire when you've just been struck in the face, you're entitled to look for fair play from the officials.

But yes, McVeety should cut out the crap....

As for saying Grimley went to kick the ball as McKiernan dived on it, since when does a player draw the boot on a ball loose ball instead of going to win it? He deliberately drew the boot on it because he saw McKiernan going to win it, clearly deliberate dangerous play.

The Sunday game are commending Armagh for defensive discipline and you're admitting that they had 1 deserved red and could have easily had 2 more. Interesting indeed.

If you think Grimley deliberately went to hurt McKernan you are way out of line. Jamie Clarke drew the boot on the ball in front of goal - who was he trying to hurt?

As for the comments on the reds I was trying to give a view on what is possible and not what I thought was correct.

He doesn't need to try to hurt him for it to be red. He needs to put him in danger, which he did. He drew the boot on the ball when he saw McKiernan was diving for it, could have caught him in the head. Should have been a red.
tbf westside the same could be said for the two challenges on burns one of which resulted in stitches and concussion. it was obvious both times that he was being taken out.
as the guys say we all see what we want to see.
decent game, draw was a fair result and for me both sending offs were correct.
your number 11 could have seen red earlier for the smack on shields which was straight across from where i was sitting and was uncalled for as both guys weren`t at any shananigans.

Sue for what though? Disappointment? Title issues were dealt with to our solicitorís satisfaction and the contract was executed our end, but not by the vendor at the end of the day. The contract specified the price etc but we wouldnít sign until certain clauses were amended, the maps were corrected (they were wrong) etc. Our solicitor certainly acted in good faith and I do not blame them in any way or have any desire to sue them.

Just pointing out our experience, all factual. Not alleging any legal wrongdoing by the vendor. Just feeling sorry for myself,  and disappointed that the impending migration to Lurgan is now delayed.
From experience  ( over 25 years 😉)in a development clause are non negotiable.
Normally if itís a new house you will have a building agreement and an agreement for lease with the deposit paid ( requirements to allow you to be confident you Re in a binding contract)
I find it strange that nothing was signed and you were proceeding to drawdown.
Questions should be asked as to how this happened.

When you vote Tomorrow in the North there is only 1 Pro European Nationalist candidate on the ballot. Always was Pro European and always campaigned positively for Europe. And most importantly campaigned for a Remain vote in the Brexit referendum. Only 1 on the ballot. If you're a pro European Nationalist then Colum Eastwood should get your 1st preference.

It's only in recent years the SDLP have started playing the nationalist card and that will stick in the craw for some of us.
They'll still get on my ballot paper, but they've a bit of work to do to build on those nationalist credentials a bit more yet.

Far too quick to lie down to big house Unionism in the past.
Too insignificant in recent years to matter.

When was this? At the birth of the Civil rights? When they campaigned for equality and the right to vote long before it became trendy? When they reached out to the IRA and convinced it's leadership of the benefits of a ceasefire or maybe when they helped to bring an end to 30 years of violence when they negotiated the GFA?

They're the only Nationalist Party on the Ballot who have been consistent in their Pro-European credentials. They don't change their view depending upon what others are for or against.

Seamus Mallon last week:

''I have come increasingly to the view that the Good Friday Agreement measurement of a bare majority (effectively 50%+1) for unity will not give us the kind of agreed and peaceful Ireland we seek.''

This is the GFA that he helped write...
tbf GJL  the gfa is the best deal that could be cobbled together but as a community we are as divided as ever so i think its fair to say that the minimum majority for a UI will not give us a settled peace. i dont think he is saying anything that the vast majority of us realise.
for me 50% plus 1 woeks but i am not naive to realise the shit storm it will unfurl.
