Yeah I was of the opinion Kevin Mac was gone since last year so I don't understand. I heard he was ousted last year but it's a pity really cos he a very talented player. Did nt gear who else gone from panel

Others gone from panel are Eoghan O'Brien, Sean T Dillon and Barry Mahony. Nothing too surprising, I think Barry Mahony is good enough to be on the panel but he's just had so many injuries.

I was reading last night that Pa Kilkenny is on the panel again and I'm delighted for him as I thought he was harshly treated by Fitzmaurice.

I know, it's really frustrating after paying €10 earlier today for it. Mine froze after ten minutes and didn't come back until the 21st minute.

Great first half but Mid Kerry have fallen apart now, what a goal by the main man David Clifford!
Mid Kerry were the better team in the first half and really really shot themselves in the foot with those 8 wides!!

Ya I was the same lost most of second quarter but had all the second half, I'll prob watch again during the week.

PK will be happy with whst he saw, Peter Crowley was comfortable, Pa Kilkenny had a mighty tussle with Paudie- ok Paudie didn't score but was heavily involved in majority of scores, the second goal being the best example. Sherwood has a solid outing again nothing spectacular just consistant and safe as was Ryan in goals. Breen had the hands full but he is worth a look. Dara kicked 2 great scores but DC's goal.. the 3 of us on the couch jumped.. just a cracker, keeper left standing by a 20 yarder... guessing he's MOTM....

But like I said of everyone watching PK and Co eill be pleased.

Hermit - two NK 1/4 results Brosna 2-14 to Duagh 0-12 and Beale 2-14 to Knock 2-12....

I lost it for 5 mins, we just came out of the live stream and then went back into it and it and it worked grand for the rest of the game.

The game its self went as expected but MK could have made a game out of it if they had scored those points.

Pa had a good game on Paud Clifford but Carey not so go good on David.

Will David keep the captaincy for 2021?

Yeah David Clifford's goal was a Jesus Christ wow moment!

But Mid Kerry, thoes wides in the front half were such a killer for them.

Pity it fizzled out I was looking forward to a right down to the wire tussle!

That's some scoring by BallyB and Brosns Horse, are they the two teams to beat this year? The Knock game sounded like a good one.
Are they streaming any of them at all?

As a guaranteed starter- Ryan Paul and DC are the only three guaranteed starters- others like Sherwood, Dara Moynihan, Paudie etc have serious roles to play but for me DC should remain in situ

Fantastic goal by David last night and Dara Roche very good too by all accounts. Won't be long now till Nov 8th in the Páirc v Cork which is a game I'm very worried about. One slip up and we gone. The hurlers get 2nd chance but not the footballers. Also the u 20 semi getting near and we really need to win this year. Surely we can get something out of the 5 winning minor teams P. G. Cork won u 20 last year altho on two occasions in the minors (during our 5 in row) we were very lucky to beat Cork who had no 2nd chance as we beat them in semi finals and who knows the might have won if they had a 3nd chance like last year. Anyway we live in hope that we will be ready when the time comes and in all codes.

Streaming back on after ten minutes and excellent afterwards. Good game and a great job by the referee, you would not know he was on the pitch.

I see Dermo is gone.

Great player on the field, off it well he wouldn't be my cup of tae.

The Dubs are eulogizing on the main page, apparently he was the perfect antidote for the "Kerry blanket" as mister multi-username has it, Mr "its our way" or whatever corporate slogan mumbo-jumbo his re-branding Dublin as now :D

Ya I seen that, he was a very good footballer for his club and dublin and I wish him the best for the future.

As for multiple username I wouldn't take any notice of that gannet I'd say he's only looking for a PR job.
Do you notice he can only go back as far as 2011 when it comes to talking about football :-)

Yeah big news with Diarmuid retirement. One of the most skilful players I've ever seen but the last 3years he had limited playing time between his sabbatical and comeback etc. He had it all-class. Scoring ability fielding and great pace. In terms of natural skill I'd only put Maurice Fitz ahead of him. While he was pavier than Maurice Maurice could kick frees off the ground with both legs. He prob still a big loss to Dublin and was a great nan to get the crowd s gander up when brought on. Probably levels the playing field a little. Himself and Jack MC missing should give other teams great hope.

Connolly retiring doesn't make a blind bit of difference to the championship. If he was going to have a big role to play he wouldn't be retiring. Last time he did anything of note at all at all at Inter County level was 2017.
