Quote from: bennydorano on Today at 06:58:58 PMNot often I think Sean Cavanagh is worth quoting but he said the Dubs performance v Kerry spooked Derry a bit and I think that's exactly what's happened - Mickey & Derry blinked first. Dubs came out with the f**k you we're the Dubs attitude and won pulling up. Bigger battles ahead surely but Derry took a big backwards step 2nite imo.

Yeah I think you are right and Micky picked a weakened side as he maybe knew what was coming. Derry a good side just not that level (hopefully it'll come)
Are Dublin operating at a level of their own (again) with Derry next in line?

Peaking too early. It's only the first few days of March.

Where is that £308 million figure coming from? I haven't seen any official figure on the cost. The costs being thrown around at the minute seem like pure speculation.

Quote from: AustinPowers on March 01, 2024, 09:50:42 PMAm I correct  in saying the original cost was £77 million? Now it's £308  million?  That is mad

Would a squad of  Polish builders do it for less?

That was 2011. GAA was not planning for a stadium that meets UEFA requirements. Even Croke Park or Páirc Uí Chaoimh or indeed any GAA stadium in Ireland would not meet UEFA requirements. Construction costs have also gone through the roof post Covid.

Yes it was 2011, but £77m was also  the cost for a  bigger stadium (38k if I recall).  So that makes the current  Price even madderer.

Why would Croke Park not meet UEFA requirements?  Sure it hosted  soccer  qualifiers. As does Landsdowne Rosd currently

What exactly  are these supposed UEFA requirements ? A heli-pad for the suits  to fly in?  A mono-rail  for  them to get to their seats?

I believe they don't allow temporary seating for the Euros which would mean the Hill end would be empty.

The main point is U.K./Ireland bid submitted Casement Park so the British government should do the honouable thing and pay up. It's not as if the Euros won't be contributing to their economy. Heaton Harris is playing to the bigots of the world with his we won't pay if it costs too much. They committed to hosting and committed to this stadium so get the wallet out.

Ha! Honourable? The Tories?!! 

They'll just move the  Casement games to  Glasgow or Liverpool , and  pin the failure of NI not being involved  on the GAA, Irish  government and Sinn Fein .

How much  for a non-UEFA approved Casement ? Is it still £308m?

I was all on for the Euros coming , but between the bigoted NI fans , unionist parties,  and the Tories,  then F**k the lot of them. Screw the  Euros, just build  Casement for the GAA.

Am very much of the same mindset. f**k them at this stage. There must be private money which can be sourced to get Casement built without Tory money. I know that would come with a lot of strings attached and payback but hell rub it up them if it could be built without them.

Eight points secured four points ahead of the rest. Would be a sensible decision to rest players.

No idea if that's right or not as Derry name their team very late on these days but Cahair is prob not far off the money. A sensible decision if it turns out to be the case. We could be playing the Dubs again in a month in a league final.
Cahair has good sources he doesn't normally post articles up without getting his information correct. Will likely play Dublin in a month in the final though a League final would probably be more winnable if Dublin wasn't in it however Mickey Harte is looking at the long term and championship and feels now is the ideal time to rest players.


Hard to disagree with it. After all the keyboard experts here have been saying we've been playing too strong a team to date  ;D

Quote from: theskull1 on March 01, 2024, 09:51:03 AMYou would expect that western politicians given the values they espouse should be apoplectic with Israel to the point that they force their hand. The fact this is not happening is a massive 'tell' in regard to the Zionist influence in all  western countries now. They have it completely gamed.

And how dare anyone call Israel out without the anti-Semitic card being played? Wrong is wrong regardless of who commits these acts of pure evil.

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on February 26, 2024, 02:12:48 PMThem 2 stands above the same cost? The rubgy one seems well laid out and better done.

It's a joke in this day and age with engineering that they stuck structural poles in the middle of seating blocking the view. Was that a cheap shortcut by the contractors to pocket more money?

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on February 22, 2024, 05:13:25 PMAway to Galway this weekend but can't see a win, our record against Galway is terrible, even when they had a bad team.Derry focus on winning their last 2 home games. Dublin may be tough if they need the points.

With Tierney and Conroy now out there's a fair argument to say that Galway's 7 most important players all won't be starting. 6 out injured for god knows how long and 1 (Kelly) will be on the bench. Ive never really known a situation like it

I wouldn't give them a prayer v Derry this weekend. Boyles went up 4/6 Derry which was an uber c**k up. Now 2/5 which is a little more correct but still a couple of notches too big. The only levelling factor I could envisage is a huge wind in salthill (not uncommon) and Derry not getting to grips with it

Plenty of strong winds up around Owenbeg and Celtic Park  :D

It's a factor yes but I don't think it is any big one. It's the same for both teams at the end of the day and Derry can easily adapt to playing against a wind with their strong running game.

Quote from: Sportacus on February 21, 2024, 03:55:50 PMThe money isn't there.  Just a wing and a prayer as things stand. A holy disgrace that Antrim gaels have had no stadium in the meantime and an absolute fiasco from the Ulster Council who continue to queue up to have their photo taken as if it's some sort of success story. Pull the plug and build an Athletics Ground stadium that will have a good atmosphere.

They could do that and ask the Irish government to spend the money on Clones instead.

Feck no. Investing that amount of money into Clones would be utter madness.

Quote from: 5times5times on February 21, 2024, 12:59:11 PMPeople who want the Ulster final to remain in Clones need their heads examined.

Town = dump
Ground = dump
Roads = crap

That about sums Clones up.

Not to highjack this thread, from our own point of view Celtic Park is fast becoming a Clones like ground. I don't mind going to games in Celtic Park but the Derry County Board need to be putting a plan in place to modernise the place or bring Owenbeg up to a bigger capacity.

The best time to plant a tree was 50 years ago, the next best time is now!

Quote from: bennydorano on February 21, 2024, 08:31:29 AMTulsa King is the show I've enjoyed the most in recent months.

Great show. Really enjoyed season 1. Looking forward to season 2.

Taylor Sheridan is involved in it so I just hope they don't make a complete balls of it like they have with Yellowstone.

I liked Paddy's dig at the end of the interview when he was talking about the competition and told Michelle not to bother entering as she was from the North and we couldn't enter.
