Anyone on the move I see all the Champions League games are now available live streaming on the Livescore app.

Apologies if this titanic and I'm the only one that wasn't aware...

One lingaard f/up away from a draw with 10 men away from home. However, that's now 7 out 11 champ league games Ole has lost.

Aye a draw would have been a palatable enough result under the circumstances but don't let the lateness or manner of the goal mask what happened before that, this was Young Boys not a top class European outfit. Utd should have been able to reorganise and while obviously fighting a rearguard action have enough about them to be dangerous on the counter attack but instead of that they retreated completely and allowed them attacks in waves not withstanding that they huffed and puffed a lot and without the error they didn't really look like scoring too often.

Putting on Martial was like playing with 9. Madness.

Bringing Martial on the plane to Switzerland was madness.

Only on here could that be the focal point of the night  :)

These are the situations where elite managers earn their corn....

None of yis think then that Lowry a slightly lucky pick?

Not really is he not the next form player in line after Westwood and Wiesberger?

Yeah there is that but look at it another way he didn't qualify automatically by either of the avenues open to him so he's not exactly pulling up trees himself? The other three have all had stellar Ryder Cup careers which might be a distinct advantage in a tough away match in the US?

Im sure Padraig would have rather Lowry snuck into the last automatic place allowing him to pick the other 3

In Windows 10 there's an option to 'always allow' long file names by editing registry... Not as daunting as it sounds, courtesy of Google

If you're quoting balls.ie and Ballbag in a debate you're unlikely to be winning....

The Fred bashing is reaching comedic levels at this stage. It's hard to argue that there aren't multiple upgrades for him out there but at the moment Utd own none of them. His partner is already injured but apparently we'd still be better off without him...

Remember why he's banned, because he should have been playing for BRAZIL during the international break. :)

GAA Discussion / Re: All Ireland final tickets thread
« on: September 09, 2021, 05:28:29 PM »
Where would this group stand in Gaaboards estimations :)

A group of us (7/8) attend both All Irelands every year, we're from Monaghan so never as a competing county  :). A good share of us would attend semis/quarters and all our own county fixtures. All involved up to our throats in our own club in management, admin, coaching, refereeing, volunteering. Its not certain yet but I'd hope we will all get this Saturday. none of the tickets through the club as we didn't come out in the club draw but from a network of contacts built up over many years.

This isn't a Billy big bollix "look at me I'm going to the match" post but a reflection of the type of people that go to the final as I'm sure we'll see/meet other groups that we see every year.

Should we be giving it a miss this year?

Answers on a postcard please..................

Ye're a bunch of c*nts. If you're any sort, you'll meet me outside Gills on Saturday and hand over the 7/8 tickets; in return; ye can all have bed & board for the week's celebrations in Mayo!! ;D

Lol, we're more Meaghers than Gills :). In other years you could have done worse than meeting us. A Mayo woman befriended us one time and got a couple of spare tickets over a couple of different years.

I’ll take a contrary opinion and say you shouldn’t go

There are people from the competing counties that have followed their teams through thick and thin-sometimes for decades, who’ve spent thousands of Euros supporting their counties at the same time putting in serious hours at their home clubs

For a lot of these people, their counties winning may very well be the best day of their lives.

Why would you deny them the opportunity to be present on the big day when you really don’t care who wins one way or the other

I’d give them up to a deserving soul and bank some serious karma

If they didn't get sorted its because clubs have messed up. Tyrone got over 11,000 tickets. They played Donegal in an Ulster semi final earlier this year with a capacity of something like 2,500 and didn't sell the full allocation (they went on general sale on the Friday evening). For the Ulster final again their was no huge demand for the allocation of tickets with a 16,000 capacity. Even for the semi final I don't believe they were going back begging for extra tickets and everyone in the clubs was easily sorted. The issue for the final in the competing counties is people jumping on the bandwagon.

Our tickets won't have come from either county boards allocations both of which are broadly the same in other years. As has been said on here by numerous people the allocation received by both counties will exceed the GAA diehards within their county?
