All in all I think it was a poor performance for us and when McShane does come back we need him to be flying - a big ask.

We still persist with this pulling and hauling off the ball - other teams naturally do the same but are cuter about it.

You could see Bonner over giving out to McQuillan at half time - that may have influenced some 50/50 calls in the second half.

Ryan McHugh is now up there challenging Murphy for the biggest yap on the field.

I would like to see Canavan and Bradley get more time on the field together to stretch defences more

The tackle on him wasn't a 2nd yellow in my book. I'd agree with your statement there.

On the game it's self, yeah i'd have to say that Kennedy was a lucky boy to not get a black card.  In the long run I don't think it would have mattered.  At times I thought Armagh looked comfortable, and had another gear.

Still frustrating that with seconds left we managed to allow a relatively decent goal chance.

Good to see that no matter what division Armagh are in, RTE give them the same minimal few seconds of coverage and chat.

Formula 1. Drive to survive on Netflix is a quality series.  I don't even follow the sport but you don't need to.  Unbelievable the skills of those drivers.  I ruthless, cutthroat business too.

Have you watch the full 3 series? haven't watched the last one and Id be the same but friends of mine are mad for it and said its great, so me and the wife (who hates motor sports) really enjoyed it.

As Screen says they are up their own holes sometimes, but they have been built up to be like that from the very start of their careers ..

No i'm similar to yourself.  Just towards the end of the 2nd series. 

Oh aye they are all super arrogant and fully believe they are the best.  I suppose you have to be that way.  Team dynamics behind the scenes is class.  Teammates are really anything but.

I've already stated I enjoyed the final series of Game of Thrones when most people pissed themselves with rage.

Old fashioned safety razor, and 100 blades (for a tenner), does for ages and as good a shave as any overpriced Gillette blades I've previously used ... saves a small fortune.

Moved to these over a year ago myself.  First few shaves cut the face off me but now that i'm used to it, they're certainly the way to go for a wet shave.

On a separate note, beard trimmers. Any recommendations for something decent at a reasonable price?

I'd agree with that too.  The FA cup winner but not the runner up if the winner has already qualified.  Then i'd give the CL place to 4th.

Yeah the "Nursery Club" is great for getting the kids down, doing some fundamental movements and being a part of the club.  I must say too, we are in a town with lots of competing clubs.  It's become near essential to start this early or you fall behind in terms of numbers.... There are too many clubs in our area in truth.

How have you coaches found the return to play after the lockdown? My own experience has been a shocking lack of fitness.  Also lots of wee niggly injuries early on in the return.  It's been very tough on the kids.

Sopranos just tops The Wire for me but it's close.  Sometimes you only realise how good a show is when it's over and you feel like you are missing an arm.

Why are people hating on the LOD finale? I think people build these shows up in their own heads too much and are always destined for disappointment. Same with Game of Thrones. I for one enjoyed it.

Finished the Falcon and winter soldier series.  I thought this was an excellent addition to the marvel series.  I never had much interest in either of these characters from the films but there ya go...

Looking forward to the Loki series in June.
Winter Soldier was my favourite of the Captain America films. Same actor playing Bucky Barnes?

Yes the same fella. Long hair has gone. Decent character. Now trying to put right his past crimes. Atonement

Utd had a period of being very poor themselves but they weathered that storm.  Does Greenwood in current form deserve to be starting ahead of Rashford?

Yeah the Roma keeper is obviously an absolute tit.
