I have to say my sense is that it will take four points and I'm struggling to see us getting them.   

I don't see 4 points under any realistic circumstances, Rufus!  :'(

Huge results after the Everton defeat of Manure.

Beating Watford was essential and was managed, albeit, it was nowhere near as comfortable as the score-line might suggest. At 1-0 up, Watford had a huge chance to equalise which was spurned. Rodrigo seems to be playing like a Spanish international now, under Marsch, which is great to see as he is an excellent player. The return of Philips and Cooper is also adding a lot to Leeds defensively.

Norwich's defeat of Burnley is devastating for the Lancashire club. They will find that hard to come back from that, although they still have games to turn it around.

A few matches ago I thought 35 points might see us safe, although I'm increasingly feeling it might take more. It's difficult though to say with any clarity. Palace away next, and that is this night fortnight. Situation will be much clearer when we next take to the field.

A fit Phillips makes all the difference for Leeds, and has for the past 3-4 years.  He makes them a difficult side to break down.

BTW that's the first time Longford have ever beaten Laois in senior league or championship football in Laois.

I repeat - THE FIRST TIME.

That doesn't surprise me AT ALL.

I have nothing to say.  It has been a mentally exhausting season.

I got this on Twitter and it is one reason why it should not just be Leeds supporters who lament Bielsa's demise. Football too has lost out.

"Bielsa is one of the last bastions of an ideology that rages against the unfair, corporate, money obsessed machine that modern day football has become. Unrelenting, uncompromising and absolutely fearless. We won’t see his like again. It was sublime."

We probably haven't seen a lot of his like before either, sadly. Genuinely gutted.

Are we ignoring that the Longford women are doing great things - Slashers in the Leinster Intermediate Final and Colmcille in the Leinster Junior Final?

Looks like we are.................sorry ladies!

You, in particular, should know better.  :P

Squad too small in numbers.  And everyone knows how to set-up and play against the tactics.  It's now maturity time.

Congrats to Mullinalaghta. Best team won and, perhaps, should have won by more.

Our big guns didn't fire at all.

Well done Mullinalaghta, natural order (ish) is restored.

Next year the Gah are planning to.run off the All Ireland by end of July.
So county finals could be held in September.

Next year, all going to plan in the post-pandemic world, we’ll be finished with All-Irelands in mid-July (hurling) and the end of the month (football).

Do away with the Jasesing inter county football and let's have more club.

You are right (for once) SS, it was of its time, and is now irrelevant.  If the GAA was what it thinks it is, grassroots would come first, always.

It's all a bit mad.  Half-parish to prevail ... eventually.
Do you mean us or Scr*bby?

Maybe both ...
