Jeepers, surely that couldn't happen, I couldn't watch, but then couldn't look away either if that happened, imagine the tension and it all coming down to the last kick........be incredible.

A penalty shootout would certainly be box office but a terrible way to lose

Be a weird way to loose a game of football A chara, something just wouldn't feel right about it.

Maybe I'm old fashioned, but maybe for the greater good, I wonder how likely it is we will see one, probably not very.

Discipline may be crucial though, wouldn't fancy extra time with 14 men.

Football

Kerry
Mayo
Dublin
Tyrone

All Ireland: Kerry
But I feel Galway and Donegal are capable of having a good crack at the championship too or with the straight knock out I feel Armagh are capable of making an all Ireland semi-final they are good enough to catch out Tyrone or Donegal on a given day.

Hurling

Munster: Limerick
Leinster: Wexford

All Ireland: Limerick


It a cliche but very true all the teams in Munster are capable of beating each other but I would fear Cork the most I still think individually they have the best forward line in the country but the problem is getting team all to click together the winter hurling will suit Eoin Cadogan at full back and Darragh Fitzgibbon is developing into a top class midfielder.

With no offence to Laois or Dublin both decent teams and have shown they are capable of causing an upset but Wexford,Kilkenny and Galway are a step above them, the 3 of them are at equal levels but I just have that feeling Wexford are going to do something this year.

If there is, its Kerry's.

I wouldn't wish it on any player from any county...missing a penalty to loose an all Ireland final....

Then again, Stephen Cluxton stepping up to take a winning penalty after saving the previous one.....glass half full. :)

Donegal are value at 15/1
Super team and very unlucky with key injuries at midfield last year.

Don't understand why Tyrone are being underestimated, they could have beaten Kerry last year and we all know how good Kerry are on their day

Was catching up on our potential fixture list for end of league and championship later in year. So following completion of club championship monaghan expected to play 2 rounds of league then cavan the following weekend in ulster preliminary. If we beat cavan three further weekends in a row if we manage to get to ulster final. Its the fixture list from the lunatic asylum 6 weekends in a row potentially to win ulster and stay up. Know other ulster teams expected to do likewise to get to croke Park to face a dublin who will have walzed through leinster. Not a hope of us doing anything in this championship with that run of games. Our first 15 can compete with any side but we'd need 2 teams for that fixture list which we dont have. Donegal are currently best side in ulster followed by tyrone whoever wins that game will face the Dubs but really hard to see an Ulster side being in contention in this abridged championship. They may as well just let kerry play dublin again as that will be the final both sides have best run of matches and good squads to cope with that many games in a short period of time outside of any other team.

Simple Quiz, what County Teams are training now, wait I will make it easier and shorter, what County Teams are not Training. More important what action should betaken against these teams and Managers who are breaking the rules and destroying Club Football.
