Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Lads have ye ever been down in the first 3-4 rows in the stand? It's brutal between the fence and the dugouts and people walking up and down you cant see a thing. I agree about the polls as well they shoud get a cantilever roof also if your stuck in the top of the stand corner of the new terrace the roof gets in the way and you can't see 1/3 of the pitch, it's a joke. Also the hermit is that 30 million devided between the 8 GAA stadiums? If so I can't imagine you'd get a roof on the st finians terrace for 4 million. Although it would be a great idea."
No K'boy, I read somewhere that €29 Million goes to the Dublin County Board for development etc and the other €1 Million is divided between the remaining 31 counties, New York and London, we should see €30,303.00 extra in our coffers by the end of the tournament all things going well.

Very very strong team for Sunday - he has picked a back 6 with pace and ball capability I particular like the fact that he is picking a central axis of Foley and Morley and in particular that fact that he has returned Paul Murphy to defence - by all accounts Barry was undropable after the last game and it is no harm at all to see how Savage goes on the forty - again a strong front 6 pacey and know where the posts are Savage Gearney back at 14 and James - what is most pleasing is he is rotating his panel of players and bringing in both old and young and getting a nice mix as well as giving players match practise - strong 15 and ideal prep for a national league early rounds as we have to hit the ground running up in ballybofey

Ye headingredients to Limerick tmw I'm just off the nightshIft hope to go up nice team picked and being honest I like the grounds as a venue - if you are over in the uncovered stand you are so close you can really feel the action

The NK Board streamed the semi live so you could be in luck if online. hard enough to call it is like you say youth vs youth Bally are good from 1-9 but I fear their forwards haven't that bit of cuteness yet about them no real killer touch in saying that they are fit and physical. Senans are savage lively and Somers/stack have them peaking at the right time. I fear for their forwards as they won't get space against a tight and loaded Bally rearguard still though I think Senan's are the fitter and as the game will go on should prevail like I said above they coming to a peak at the right time. Will be a novel find as both clubs have been to the fore in last 5 years or so at underage level it's no coincidence too that local employment has risen keeping the 20 plus age people local. It will be some clash though the crowd will be savage considering the novel paring

Finished this dvd the one game I was looking forward to the most was the 2006 quarter with Armagh only a passing reference given to mention or replay of the Donaghey goak vs Francie Bellow I'm really disappointed it is so anti-climatic it could have been done so much better put it this was we all grew up with the 3 hours of the golden years edged in the brain i cannot see this dvd getting the same airing as the original

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Ah I was thinking it sounded like a funny result allright horse, jays that's a lot of players to be missing. Any games on up there today?"
Desmonds were well and truly beaten by Senans, I did fancy Castleisland just about but like I said above they were missing a fair few, Senans are some team though they have a nice sprinkle of youth and experience and a lot of their key players have graced the county at underage level, 3 now into the semi, Tarbert, Senans, Ballydonoghue I think and the winners of next sundays clash of Listowel and Ballyduff... that'll be a clash, as far as I'm aware the NK board will meet Thursday to make the Semi Final draw.

Replying To TheHermit:  "My dad's a taxi man down in Tralee Cue though he'll be retiring soon. So always have a lot of time for the lads and lassies who get us where we need to go. But there's always one or two chancers who think they can get away with driving you around the world for sport or trying to charge you extra. Worst is down home, you could be hailing a cab in Tralee after a night out and its a 10min drive straight out the main Tralee/Listowel road to my place and some of them try and take €30 off you! Thankfully there's isn't so many taxi's in Tralee that when I mention the father's name they quickly cop on, but God knows what they might be charging other people! Ah Horse, it is the off season we have to find something to talk about. Here what are you making of the North Kerry championship? Desmonds are up against St Sena's on Sunday, they both raked up fierce looking scores in their first outing last month. Emmets did the same."
Hermit: Went to Bally on Sunday I was very very impressed with Tarbert, hi they are well drilled and fit no stars or air of ego about them, I know Newtown are in decline and for years they declined to give youth a chance and held on the tried and trusted which got them no where, their bench had by all accounts a few minors who some felt should have been given the chance even if they still lost just to gain experience, I think 2 or 3 of them came on with 5 minutes to go pointless, they chanced manager too about 2 months ago which is never a good sign. Tarbert lorded the centre and Moyvane never really got going or were not allowed to get going, no Tarbert are handy enough physically strong and well able to win the 50/50 challenges. Sunday will see Castle and Senans, Castleisland are a team that if they just get their house in order could win it out any year, they have a serious crop of youngsters coming up but are missing 4 or 5 for Sunday, Senans are some peoples surprise but their teams is fairly sprinkled with ex Kerry Juniors and Minors they are tidy enough on paper and have a good coaching set up behind them in Somers/Stack ok they gave Duagh a trimming but Duagh are a club with internal troubles. Still I fancy Castle but just about…

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "No lads I'm not from Churchill either or mid Kerry , this will keep us going till the start of the league at this stage :-/ Anyway I see we have 5 school teams through to the knock out stages of the corn ui mhuirí . Going by results that iv seen on line st Brendan's look strong again for 2017 even without David Clifford."
Brendans have a conveyor belt of talent at the moment in fairness a goods schools structure and set up has a knock on effect on Minor teams and so on - this only bodes well for the future of Kerry football.. again apart from players it also gives coaches a insight and experience

You heading to Newtown tmw to see your opposition for the final - the nephews play with Finuge minors if that is the respect the NK Board have for the players of the future it'll be a long time before I watch a NK divisional game and put my hand in my pocket for my hard earned cash for them to be lining their pockets with - fecking disgraceful treatment of underage players if I was moyvane i'd lock the gates tmw and seriously embarrass the NK hierarchy

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Ya it should be good if last years game is anything to go by. I wonder what team Eamon will pick the weekend will bjk comeback for another year warming the bench will jod get his hunger back and the same with David Moran '!"
I'd like to see a mixture of players for Sunday - I would like Fitz to retain players that impressed Sunday the likes of Ryan in goals Foley Begley young Barry I'm midfield i'd retain Barry Sullivan and up front Sean Paul Shea and Matthew Sullivan looked at handful - other players i'doubt like to see Sunday are the injured few from last year Brendan Sullivan Alan Fitzgerald Mikey Greaney and then the likes of Adrain Spillane etc

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Ya iv been very impressed with Shane Murphy my self horse, his kickouts and free kick are a thing of beauty and he'll miss the first couple of games in the league for sure but I fully expect corofin to knock the crokes out in the semi. Shane Ryan hasn't played in goals in quite a bit now and his kicks needed work back a year ago so I can't see him in goals for us. I like the look of the ballydonaghue keeper dara O'Shea I think his name is! Wasn't he the junior keeper last year? Ya hopefully griffen has another good year at full back in 2017 and hopefully Jason foley will get an opertunity once the 21s are finished."
that's looking like the likely out come

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "That's true horse but when a player puts what he does outside the 4 white lines in a book and try's to pedal it then he's fair game for discussion ."
yes I agree to a degree. but depends on the motivation... if it is to make money and that is the sole purpose, well then yes I agree but if it is say something along the line of Donal Óg's book that tackles hidden taboo subject regarding homosexuality or the Armagh's Oisín Mac's book regarding gambling well the no I would but declare out of bounds...

Replying To 37sowhat:  "Eamonn is anything but a stubborn man singleminded yes but democratic in all his dealings at work and at play has made errors, who hasn't? but always big enough to admit it Is highly respected by those who work with him and looked up to by the players This I am confident is the year it will turn out right and I see the new man Face Fits! as next Bainnisteöir
Future is bright"
Completely agree - I have always been an of th r opinion that managers should serve initially as selectors to get experience - Jack did it under Paidi Eamon did it under Jack and I too firmly believe in time Mossie will be the n as new in 2 years after Eamon walks but in the meantime we have a nice blend now on the white line - I don't think Eamon is egotistical and he comes across as very thoughtful on the game and deep in his approach - some have again mentioned the Marc on for Greaney sub I think this was tactical as Dublin had introduced a forward for a back at the time and we too had success building from the back in a time were we needed ball carriers - personally I think it was the right call it just didn't work out - small margins
