Down / Re: Down GAA Champion 2018 Prediction Competition.
« on: May 31, 2019, 03:56:48 PM »
Just  to let you know that i am unable to continue with the Prediction league due to my blindness, i have been partially sighted from 30 years ago and its has got worse over the years to now nearly completely blind,
i really enjoyed doing the competition over last decade, its was great fun and thank you all for taking part,

I hope someone can take it over and i hope to take part in it.

All the best Umpire and thanks for your endeavors over the years. Although I only entered on a couple of occasions I always enjoyed following the competitions to see who really knew their stuff.
Hopefully someone can continue to run the competition from here on in, it would be a pity to lose it.

The cost of a womanís hair do. My wife goes to a place called Brown Sugar in the City Center, it costs the price of a cheap holiday and its every six weeks.
My barber recently put up the price of a haircut from Ä10 to Ä12 and there was uproar. He lost lifelong customers over Ä2.

Time for your predictions for tomorrow night. Iím going with a comfortable 3-0 win for the Reds.

General discussion / Re: Sinn Fein? They have gone away, you know.

Sinn Fein have a born leader in Pearse Doherty, but political correctness seems to have got in the way for now. Mary Lou, is a like able politician, but she just isnít leadership material. Thone yoke from Tyrone, I wince every time she opens her beak. Every time that PWL appears on TV it must cost them 1000 votes.
The biggest issue and one no one seems to be looking at this in depth, is that nationalists in the north just arenít bothering to vote. At a time when unionism is fracturing right in front of our eyes, the taigs have lost interest and can you really blame them?

There is the makings of a fine footballer in Finn McElroy, if he could just keep focused on the game itself.

Leeds United are in talks with a billionaire Sheikh from the Middle East. They are discussing a multi million pound takeover deal to get the club back to the premier league.

Sheikh Anvack has promised to put the freshness back!!

After the Barcelona game,  hopes were sky high (obviously!) but as we get closer; the doubt slips in!  Would have been confident of a 2-0;  now the image of Son , Erikson , or to a lesser extent (!) Kane scoring,  the confidence lowers a bit!

Weíre going to smash them. I canít see one area where Spurs are stronger than Liverpool. Iím confident of a 3-0 win.

People pay their hard earned money to live in Lurgan? A bullet dodged.

If thatís the Armagh team then Iím a China man. Geezer rarely ever lines out as selected it is just to keep Tally guessing.

Geezerís mind games usually end up with Geezer doing the guessing, his Championship record speaks for itself.
25 years ago we played Derry in the first round in Celtic Park, a game that will long be remembered as a classic and virtually assured us of a second All Ireland in 3 years. No one would have believed that weíd have won nothing in the next quarter of a century. The way things are at the minute you wouldnít be too confident of things changing over the next 25 years.

Tally is more than capable of shaking up the team that finished the league.

Shame he hadnít given them a bit of a shake before the league finished.

The price of kids football kits is a disgrace.

Just spoken to a Blue who has spent £800 on new kits in the past twelve months.

Heís had Everton home and away, plus Real Madrid, Man City and now Tottenham Hotspur.

Thatís before £10 on a Messi scarf!

Remembering William Dunlop.

Family, friends and fellow riders reflect on the life of William Dunlop, one of Northern Irelandís best ever motorcycle road racers. The programme also features many of his most famous race victories.

Tonight, BBC1 10:35.

Disappointing end to the league, but we blew it with a series of draws against mid table teams like West Ham, Everton and United. City went on an incredible run and never looked like they would drop any points.
We have the small consolation of the Champions League which in my opinion is a gimme. We will destroy this Tottenham side in the final. Iím delighted we are playing them instead of Ajax. Spurs got lucky in the semi, Ajax lack of experience was their undoing and sadly the bigger European clubs will have the pick of their players over the summer.

It pains me to say this, but Armagh will win this with ease. Thatís not to say they are any great shakes, but this is one of the poorest Down teams I have ever seen. While we were unlucky to miss out on promotion, we had an awful lot of luck and could easily have been relegated. Losing to Louth was inexcusable.
Armagh to win by 6 or 7 points and a stay of execution for the McGeeney gravy train.
