Biden will win, and Democrats will take control of the Senate. The bookies and polling companies were marginally wrong in 2016 but they are more cautious this time and are building in the 'I'm not going to admit to backing Trump' factor. I am excited by Biden's plans for governing if not by Biden himself, although Kamala Harris may turn out to be the real President.
Trump will not go quietly but the power of the State will ultimately crush him if not his fanatical extremist supporters.

I thought Tony Holohan was excellent on the Late Late last night; informed, realistic but reassuring.  The 26 counties are lucky to have such leadership at this time.

Yes, while it would require Longford to beat Cork, it is possible if Down lose that we will be in a 3 way tie with them and Derry or Offaly.
Cork are up and have nothing to play for so we should go to Drogheda seeking a win or at least avoid defeat

Yewtree the reason there's no buzz around the Point or Newry might just be because people have certain other things on their minds.
All the  players and mentors across the four codes have put in tremendous efforts in the most challenging of circumstances to give the people enjoyment and excitement. The county board, referees and all involved with Pairc TV deserve great praise for reminding us what's important during the most difficult of times. You're the sort of boy who loves sitting in the dark complaining rather than turning on the light.

Listening to Joe on BBC Re-run of the 1994 Down v Derry game last night was a perfect example of what George Orwell  called Doublespeak.
Or what we in Down call a bitter bollox talking out of both sides of his mouth.
He says that he loved Eamon Coleman (and,of course, Eamon loved him) but blames Eamon for picking the wrong team and that's why Derry lost. Joe reckons Eamon wanted to give a game to boys that missed out on starting the previous year's final. Dermot McNicholl. Really?
He also blames Eamon for leaving his son Gary on Mickey Linden for too long. Mickey was player of the year in 94 and nobody could mark him.
Finally he chastised Karl Diamond for shooting rather than giving the ball back to him. The same Joe who,as a corner forward, literally never had a shot while Paul Higgins marked him.
Here is a revelation for a bitter and twisted pundit; the reason that Down beat Derry in 1994 is that on the day they were the better team and scored more than their opponents

Johnnycool, think it was Ross that gave Magic a couple of games, he wasn't the worst but you could see he was a hurler trying to think as a footballer.
Any more word of where EB are playing their games and what sort of a squad are they pulling together?
