Meath would be like Manchester United - always living off past glories... Waterford hurlers remind me of Newcastle in the ninties, always entertaining to watch and liable to produce any kind of result - could attribute the same to the Mayo footballers.... Dublin - Bit like Real Madrid, always getting bailed out and of late very successful, all the galacticos, flash managers... but prime for a fall..... Kerry - Barcelona - representing a Kingdom of one..... a lot of style but no substance when its really put to them by a better team, they crumble like the weak soil under their feet Cork - Millwall - everyone hates them and they don't care Mayo - Liverpool - never stop telling you how great they are, flashes of magic and promises of delivering but always let you down... next year is always their year Down - Arsenal - they always have great players and should be better than where they currently are. Used to be great but the glory days are as much behind them as in front of them Donegal - Chelsea - can grind out results and win trophies but not everyone's cup of tea.... Cavan - Preston North End - they were great back in their prime but its so long ago that not even your grandfather remembers how good they were..

Graham Geraghty's wife posted this as part of her message on Facebook today: 'We know the Gods on the Hill of Tara will pull one of their best warriors through' Graham was a class act on the pitch in a Meath Jersey, skilful, a great football brain, brave, a great leader and he hated losing. He won't lose this battle either.

Best wishes to Graham and his family, It sounds like he has a tough road ahead, but he is over the 1st hurdle. I count myself lucky to have seen him so often in his prime on the playing fields, even if we were on the receiving end, he was in a class apart

Replying To dickie10:  "i remember being at the infamous league match meath v dublin 2008 in parnell park when 5 players were sent off 3 dubs and 2 meath and someone threw a cup of tea aimed at ciaran whelan as he walked off after sending off, graham was a sub being a veteran by this time he was introduced not long after and took up a full forward position in front of the dubs fans end, plenty of nice songs and jeering when he came in, graham turned around and blew them a kiss, the place erupted in a cheer, all tensions disipatted after that!"
I was at that match and was having banter with a friend of mine from Kells the next day on the phone. The first thing he said to me was "a waste of good tae". Get well soon Graham.

When did Barcelona and Millwall join the premier league? Also Liverpool are champions and back on their perch so O think you'll have to find a different team for us. Meath more like Atletico Madrid, in the shadow of Real Dublin.

Donegal Vs Tyrone - 2 Like(s)
Can't wait for Sunday, Donegal v Tyrone and Limerick v Tipp - all four would have serious aspirations of at least making an All-Ireland final. What a brilliant afternoon of sport it should be! And come Sunday evening one of the favorites for Sam will have bitten the dust, what a contest this is - even if the nature of what's at stake might mean its relatively cagey and low scoring, at least in the opening half. As someone already said this is where the crowds will really be missed. Can you imagine if this was being played in a packed out Clones with both sets of supporters baying for blood. Alas that's not to be but it should live up to the billing regardless. I really wouldn't bet on a winner from what I saw of Donegal two weeks ago and Tyrone last Sunday they both look well capable of coming out on top. If I was pushed I would slightly favour Donegal given the Murphy factor and the quality of their forwards as a whole. But after seeing young Cavanan and Conor McKenna were like last weekend I might be completely wrong in thinking Donegal have the superior forward unit at the minute. Everything on the line and no clear favorite what more could you ask for, just sit back and let all hell erupt!

Absolutely fabulous footballer. I saw him kick points that I don't believe anybody else could have scored.

Meath would be Norwich City. We're both Green and Gold and recently relegated!!

In truth in 2011 everyone was happy Dublin won in 2011, back then I don't think anyone expected ye to keep winning the way ye have!. I remember having a chat with him in Buck Milligans a week after Meaths loss to Dublin in 1995, he was a total gentle man.

Garvaghy Road Flag At Roscommon V Ardmagh Game At Athletic Grounds - 2 Like(s)

Replying To Saynothing:  "[quote=tomsmith:  "Tomsmith here I have read all your posts and stood back for a day or two so not to post in haste. But I shudder to think that anyone from Garvaghy RD could fail to condemn such behaviours by pot stirrers,. Thjere is two ways of looking at this flag thing ( and you Green eyed people are wrong both ways) and I feel with Ardmagh playing i top flight teams that this flag should be hidden or a public burning taken place by the owners . One has to be aware that Ardmagh will entertain top teams at home this year, who have no interest in race, class or creed and indeed will not know why this display of gratuitous offending is taking place J ust wonder will the flag will the flag be flying in front of well educated Div 1 supporters"
Do you live in Finchley. I for one hope it's flying when or if Tyrone visit next year. Your not wise in the head especially with your last sentence."]Well done "tom." Plenty of bites lol He's at it constantly on the Cavan page lads. It is funny though.

Hope he's okay and recovers. Meath legend. I know he became a super forward, but for me he's the greatest number 5 I've ever seen

Return Of The Championship - Excited ? Not Overly Bothered ? - 1 Like(s)

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "I have relations from West Cork who'd be involved with their club and they're always telling me about these great young talented players that they'd see or hear of from different parts of the county and then they'll say but he's an excellent hurler as well and then the eyes drop and there is a moments silence. I wouldn't be the biggest hurling fan and I haven't seen con O'Callaghan play hurling at all, but could he not do both? Surely the 2 management teams could get together and work out some kind of plan where they share him. Playing both codes in a county like Cork probably wouldn't work as its a vast county with massive distances to travel but in dublin that shouldnt be a problem."
You'd swear Cork was the size of Texas

Offaly are like Leeds United. Great teams in the past, but slipped down the rankings in recent years. Both have had a succession of managers down the years. Leeds are now back in the top flight, while Offaly languish in Division 3.
