Donegal V Dublin - 6 Like(s)

Replying To hill16no1man:  "Very poor game of football today. two woeful performances from each side. referee had the two biggest moments in the game in awarding the first goal incorrectly when it was a clear square ball and then the free at the end was for what exactly? If anything the Donegal forward was the only player with hand on an opposition player. in all honesty we should have been out of sight long before the goals. the over doing of passing the ball instead of having a go at the posts is something that is becoming too obvious to opposition teams. Poor team selection from Gavin today aswell it was a forward line lacking any firepower he selected. Donegal were there typical selves dour boring and refusing to kick the ball in the first half yet they were rewarded for it like a mask murderer winning the euromillions by getting two freak goals. felt the pitch was borderline unplayable aswell for the most part."
how dare anyone put it up to the dubs! :)

Meath versus Galway - 5 Like(s)

Replying To Ratoath Royal:  "Decent performance but still a lot to work on. The increased workrate was the main improvement. Harman was brilliant for the first half but the lack of match fitness got to him in the second half. Lenehan was making great runs throughout the game and COS finally found him for the goal. Negatives: Midfield cleaned out again. Too many of Galway's defenders went forward without being tracked. We went far too long in the second half between scores again. Deegan was atrocious. Menton and Keogan both made great tackles in the second half but we're penalized which resulted in a Galway point. Great win. We're still in with a shout of promotion but survival should still be the main aim."
deegan has a serious problem with meath,it is not right..

Meath v Louth - 5 Like(s)
After watching the fitness,courage,teamwork,will to win,belief from the hurlers,who were underdogs in their last 3 games and massive underdogs yesterday,its now up to the footballers. All this is whats been lacking and that comes from management in my view.Can they take this on board and turn things around? If they do,then they will beat Louth and do it comfortably and also give Dublin a game,because we have the players to cause problems.

Mayo vs Roscommon - 5 Like(s)

Replying To Tirchonaill1:  "AOS and COC are experts at getting players booked too, for a big man the amount of times AOS acts like he's tied up at the ankles by a simple tackle is baffling, simulation is alive and well and living in Mayo. Rossies aren't coming out for the second half, on the bus quick and away home."
mind you murphy often goes down too easy too eh?

Championship Restructure?? - 5 Like(s)

Replying To juicy:  "I have seen numerous comments through the different topics regarding the club championship and it got me thinking. Is there any issues with the club championship in its current format? Personally I would say 'No'. If you look at the vast majority of games there is very little between the teams. People will argue that it is not competitive but if that was the case then there would be a lot of hammering occurring. If you look at the Dublin Championship, which is generally regarded as the most competitive in the country, the facts dont stack up. The top 4/5 teams are close but the remaining teams there is a massive difference in terms of quality. I think we have a competitive championship and i think the major point here is competitive. I dont think it is a good championship in terms of quality, hence why the champions struggle in Leinster. But the quality has got nothing to do with the structure. Opinions?"
really? we have the worst championship in the country in terms of system. the clubs really made a balls of it last year and it should be changed regardless of what the clubs think.

Meath v Louth - 4 Like(s)

Replying To Htaem:  "Ye I don't think McDonagh is particularly physically imposing either, but MOD seems to prefer small fast players rather big physical lads. I wouldn't mind seeing a physical FF line with Newman and Tormey in around the square and you could have Wallace running off them to add pace. But either way, again I'd rather see a team full of players who know their position and their role and are capable of fulfilling both."
Agree with you 100% Htaem.. If we are playing Tormey I would play him in there.Wallace works well working off Newman.He is a player(Wallace) that I would name corner forward,but I would play him between the lines of the half forward line and full forward line.His best games for Meath are in this role.

Replying To browncows:  "Would ye have won that game last year, I doubt it as ye were hammered in second halve every game ye played. joeblogs10 (Dublin) Your incorrect and I would expect to beat a Div 3 or Div 4 team. I know it is irrelevant but if memory serves me correctly came from 8 or 9 points down against Galway last year to draw the match."
eh most of our games we fell apart in the 2nd half. we were 9 points up on galway at half time...

Replying To TakeYourPoints6:  "Dan O Neill was taken off after 30 mins yesterday for u21s. I really don't see the basis of everyone including him in future teams. McGovern was cut from the senior panel as far as I'm aware so I doubt he'll be magically back in come championship. Personally don't think Conlon is an inter county 6. If people were complaining about Joey Wallace being too small to start then they're going to have a field day if you think McLoughlin will be starting"
Dan O'Neill was an injury doubt before the game,I would suggest that is why he was taken off.

Replying To Equineburger:  "Very interesting reaction from the linesman. He was pushed by Connolly. Straight red by the rules of the game. Linesman looked stunned though. He was after being man handled by a player and he didn't stamp his authority on the situation. Poor on his part I thought. Let himself be intimidated by the player. What's that all about?"
wonder if it was a carlow player. real agenda if the gaa ignore this..

sorry but i am fuming.. the lads gave it their all and proud of them,but some awful decisions from the ref,especially in the closing stages won them the game. clear push from murphy on menton lead to a score and a double hop for another late point.

What evidence is there to suggest Louth are cocky? Maybe they think they have a chance of winning,how does that make them cocky? How dare they think they can win! :D

Open The Lid on Dublin's Finances - 4 Like(s)

Replying To Laois76:  "Between 2004 and 2009 Kerry won 4 of 6 all-ireland football titles. Between 2011 and 2016 Dublin won 4 of 6 all-ireland football titles. When Kerry won, and beat the Dubs like in 2004, 2007 and 2009 it was because the Kingdom produced lovely natural footballers. Dublin for all their population and resources just produced athletes, they weren't natural footballers. In the same way their hurlers are never described as silky or natural. However when Dublin won their recent all-irelands beating Kerry in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016 a lot of people didn't want to give them the credit they deserved. Few said Dublin are now producing complete, natural footballers. The 'athleticism' over skill label was still pedaled for a while. Then the common refrain from the begrudgers was they have a huge population and they bought their success. Now the population of Dublin was much the same 10 years ago when they could only produce athletes! Meath has a population of 190,000, Kildare 220,000. Posters from these counties are cribbing about the Dubs advantages, just some posters. Yet Mayo with a population of 130,000 drew with the Dubs over the last 2 years. Lost by a point in an all-ireland in 2013 and beat them in 2012. Going by recent form they'll compete well in the final. Colm O'Rourke made a point in his Sindo column that really Meath and Kildare have no excuses for not doing better. I think Kildare, at underage, are trying to address this. Double standards??"
meaths population is larger because dubs moved out here. you don't see those kids in meath jerseys....

Replying To WhyTheLongFace:  "I think Andy is better off having a bad start than a good start ! It's not how you start the season, it's how you finish is more important ! When Joe Schmidt took over Leinster the first few games leinster look clueless ...but it takes time and a couple of games for the manager of any team to put their stamp on it and get through to lads this is what i want ! Another thing is there is no such thing as psychological damage done by losing a game of football lord jaysus..i still never met any Mayo footballers drooling from the mouth and swallowing a bucket of tablets for losing all them all irelands ! Its a game off ball the defender is not running after anybody with a shot gun :) Look if i was a Sport Psychologist i would be telling the lads after the louth defeat that they suffered psychological damage...and i am going to fix the problem but it will cost 2000 euros i put on me big white doctors coat...then i put on my balaclava ! Do you know what i mean ?"
Chelsea under Conte looked clueless at the beginning..

Its a farce! Look Meath beat Laois. Laois then have to beat Carlow,Louth and Offaly to reach final. Meath have to beat Dublin and Kildare.
