GAA Discussion / Re: County Manager Merry go round
« on: October 08, 2021, 06:33:07 AM »
McEntee wasn't expected was it? Obviously delighted to see Meath in turmoil and I am agin Jacko at Kerry too now, so I am happy to see gripes and the likes in both place.

But who is lined up for Meath?

To answer your question, NO ONE!!

That would have meant there was a plan or something resembling forward thinking by the board.

This is the most bone headed knee jerk decision I’ve seen since the 2010 debacle. Honestly this seems like nothing more than a few disgruntled heads angry about the U20s. Ever since then there have been a good few clueless ejits shouting “Andy Out” on social media with no idea of who’d replace him, maybe Bernard Flynn because…..??? No idea, or Colm O’Rourke who is Stone Age judging by his punditry.

Whether you like him or not Andy is passionate about Meath, that’s why he gets a bit mad, And that’s fine by me. He gives a damn. and he’ll stick around and not f**k off to Kerry or wherever.

You won’t even get that passion from O’Rourke or Flynn either. They’ve got a comfortable life in journalism and punditry. They’ll put their hand in for a year or two with a large back room team to do the real work no doubt and if it doesn’t go well they’ll jump. Andy had a rough few years to begin with but stuck to it and it was starting to pay off. There have been a few wobbles recently like losing to Kildare in the league this year but you can’t ignore the effects the pandemic has had too.

Meath will have to win one. At least something to justify the mad work that gone into it the last few years. Otherwise we might just be mad altogether.

More positive developments at underage here:

We are I think on the right path after a wobbly start to Andy’s reign. Still a lot of work to do and deficit in talent to make up in the panel to be honest. Underage things are going better than ever and there’s more that we can achieve still at those grades.

Not sure how much longer Andy is willing to go with the team and his successor within the county of far from obvious however.

Watched it today. Thought it was a good entertaining game for the neutral. Tyrones unheralded midfield really impressed me, Kennedy and Kilpatrick. Great tackling and fielding by the whole team and they were able to switch up their style of play which is crucial in today’s game but so few teams seem to be able to do it well. Well done to Brian and Feargal. They did some job in changing that team around from the league hammering against Kerry.

Mayo could have won it too but those missed goal chances, especially in the start of the second half you could see the writing was on the wall. I don’t think Mayo were as bad a people are saying but they need another way of playing and attacking. Aiden O’Shea was again not in his best position I feel, needed to be at 11 to help secure midfield, link play and create pressure high up the field when Tyrone have possession.

Tyrone could be double contenders but Ulster is always minefield.

@bod_uherald

Meath 96 winners the Jubilee team tomorrow- a team fondly remembered by all Tyrone and Mayo fans- be an interesting reaction at Croke Park

Ha! I'm hoping it's because it's 25 years and not because the GAA are trolling Tyrone/Mayo.

You couldn’t make it up, like all the stars are aligning.

Who’ll get the biggest cheer? Martin O’Connell? Coyler? McDermott?

Vicky Wall was 13. She’s had a big impact on the team since she’s come in to the squad. Perhaps we got a bit of luck with the goal but we fought hard for everything and deserved it in the end.

12:45 throw in.

Live on TG4

Meath (All-Ireland MFC semi-final v Sligo):

Oisin McDermott;

Conor Ennis, Liam Kelly, Brian O’Halloran;
Shaun Leonard, Tomas Corbett, Killian Smyth;

Paul Wilson, Jack Kinlough;

Andrew Moore, Sean Emmanuel, Conor McWeeney;
Christian Finlay, Oisin O Murchu, Hughie Corcoran

Leonard, Kinlough and Hughie Corcoran have been the stand outs for us so far. Hard to gauge us based on Leinster form as the quality has been falling a bit in the province the last few years but then Offaly bucked that trend so we’ll have to see but we’re in with a good shot at getting to the final.

As long as the oil and weapons moguls made their money that’s all that matters in Washington at the end of the day. They wanted Syria and Iran too but they’ll have another try at those in the decades to come.

The Red and Blue party finger pointing is just shadows on the wall of the cave. The Afghan army was likely full of Taliban sympathizers and infiltrators. It was never going to go any other way.

I guess the Meath game wasn’t a mirage.

Its clearly a deliberate tactic to contain Dublin for the first half and then push up on them and up the tempo. Dublins wider panels inexperience in these sorts of pressure situations showed itself. James McCarthy at the end for the 45 is hard to understand. The ball was still going in and he was throwing knees into his opponent. Madness.

Referees performance was not the best but there was a lot of cynical stuff going on to make it hard for him.

I’d put Kerry as strong favourites but they haven’t been tested yet in the championship so far.

Don’t recall anyone in the Meath camp mentioning the music. As hound said, we were way better in the second half anyway. Hopefully the Dubs do it again next time then and at start of the match if that’s the effect.

Sligo v Meath....probably Breffni
Cork v Ulster Champs.... probably Tullamore.

Meath vs Sligo on the weekend of the 20th of August it looks like on the GAA website.

Didn’t realise it was on so early. Pleased with the result. Time to do the real business of winning an All Ireland now though.

Semi Finals:     
Louth   v    Meath   24.7.2021   12.00pm   Pairc Tailteann, Navan
Dublin   v   Kildare   24.7.2021   12.00pm   Parnell Park

First game out for our lads but it’s at home. New team at this grade with only one hold over from last years team I think. No one from St Vincent’s or Curragha on the panel is disappointing.

Dublin remind me a bit of Meath in the early 90’s past their absolute peak but still able to find a way to win without performing 100%. Doing the right thing when it really counts.

And similarly to that Meath team Dessie has a job of building a new team, it won’t be enough if he tries to just maintain Jim Gavins legacy, he needs to put his own stamp on things and build a team of his own. They are still very formidable but Meath gave them far too much room in the first half.

Dublin might have eased off a bit but there was a plausible chance of them getting caught out, like had Morris been a bit more composed with his point taking or if Ronan Jones looked to slot his shot low to the corner rather than blasting it at Comerford.
