Go easy on catch. He or she will catch up with us sometime. We are all God's children regardless of our intellect.

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Exactly Mick, it's a lot better now with the motorway from limerick but still a long hard journey, hopefully in years to come they'll bypass Adare Newcastle West and Abbeyfeale it'll make it a little easier."
Oh , Mick is it now ? Ha, you remember when you accused the same Mick of not being from Kerry Tommy ?

Galway V Mayo - 3 Like(s)

Replying To Ronan1989:  "Wow Galway had the game in the palm of their hands.... Make no mistake this result is because Galway stopped playing in the second half not due to the talent of Mayo. Dublin to beat Mayo by 5/6 points"
Ah another Donegal man who talks nonsense. Sure you could say the first half was about Mayo being bad. Childish comments. The amount of lads sickened on here because Mayo won't go away is hilarious. Going to be in the top 4 for a few years yet even if they lose to Dublin. Up to other teams to step up.

Cork just can't be this far behind kerry, at the time of writing there's 7 goals in it,,since they scored their goal there's been a 26 point turnaround,, surely they can do better than this

Fantastic spirit and effort by Mayo... Why are so many posters not giving them their fair dues? And as for the half time comments by a few Galway fans.... Count and chickens comes to mind.

Earpieces - 3 Like(s)

Replying To KillingFields:  "And the earpiece assists their management of the game. The ear piece helps get them info and send info to change the game plan if necessary or whatever else. The data analysts can see trends that a person on pitch alone wont be able to see. link The analyst will be coding the game which gains insights just watching the game alone wont be able to do"
"And the earpiece assists their management of the game. The ear piece helps get them info and send info to change the game plan if necessary or whatever else." You should get in touch with the likes of Pep Guardiola, Jürgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel etc. And tell them all where they are going wrong. None of them wear earpieces during matches.

Replying To arock:  "The negativity around football is quite irritating. You have good teams and bad teams in every competition. There are structural problems in the game for sure, some of the rules are bizarre, take a free scoring chance for a catch! . But every sport has these problems. If Liverpool stuff someone 7-0 no one bats an eyelid, so what?"
True. There have always good teams and bad teams, since the very beginning.1979 was a particularly fruitful year for the hammering of the minnow: Meath 6-19, Kilkenny 0-3; Dublin 4-16, Louth 0-4; Kerry 9-31, Clare 1-09 in the Milltown Massacre; and even in the AI semi-final, Kerry 5-14, Monaghan 0-7. I didn't hear anyone cry mile murder back then. It is only since Dublin took over and done the 5-in-a-row (then 6) that all the lamentation has started. It's high time, and has been for a long time to scrap the provincial championships. Everyone says Leinster is dead. Munster is worse and has always been worse. For all the talk of Dublin's dominance, the county has only 59 Leinster titles, which pales in comparison to Kerry's 82 titles in Munster. For about 70 of those titles the Kerry county board could have just as easily have sent a self stamped-addressed box to the Munster council for return delivery of the cup, which no one seems to even know the name of, such was the totally lop-sided nature and imbalance involved. What value can a player put on a medal, the winning of which is as easy as taking candy off a baby? The GAA needs to level the playing field. Pit teams against teams of similar worth and ability, and let them have at it. And don't mention this bridging-the-gap BS. The likes of Leitrim, Carlow, Waterford, Kilkenny, Louth, Antrim, etc. (and a lot more) will never bridge the gap on counties like Galway, Mayo, Tyrone, Kerry, and Dublin (and a couple more). They have all had 137 years since the foundation of the association to bridge-the-gap. They haven't done it. In the next 137 years, they won't do it, either. Let a bit of common sense and cop-on prevail in the GAA for a change.

2021 Hurling Championship - 3 Like(s)

Replying To ecad123:  "Maybe just maybe if in 2018 Galway hand another week or two to recover they would have beaten Limerick. And maybe just maybe if limerick had played a kilkenny team that had not been playing for the third week in a row they would not have been even in the semifinal let alone final. See where I'm going with this."
Maybe if Galway hadn't let in 2 very soft goals in 2017 the margin of victory would have been much higher. Maybe if Galway had Mattie Kenny as manager instead of AC from 2012-2016 Galway would have won another ALL Ireland, if they had Niall Donoghue (RIP) etc etc. Oldtourman is talking both sides of his mouth, before the game he was saying Galway were still a huge threat as were other Limerick posters, now they come here to bad mouth them. They hit you when you're down, a sporting lot no doubt! Maybe if Limerick hadn't the financial backing of a billionaire they wouldn't be so hot! There will always be maybes.

Yup, as gutted as I am to have had such a bad season, I'll be cheering waterford from here on in. Would be great to see them do it.

Replying To Tirchonaill1:  "That ruckus at half time must have shook the Galway men up badly, desperate 2nd half from them, first 2nd half score in the 62nd min, not good enough to win any game, Mayo looking good, can't believe how bad Galway are."
Mayo have form for tunnel brawls and it seems to work for them. Galway had such a bad second half. Congrats to Mayo. Could this be their year?

Replying To gatha:  "How many managers have Galway in the last 20-25 years. They all couldn't be bad. A county with the underage record of Galway should do a lot better. They had an ALL-Ireland winning manager from Galway and he left with that team in it's prime. Explain that."
Donoghue given the boot when he should have been backed in 2019. Nobody as far as I know wanted the gig in Galway (that tells you all you need to know with the squad at disposal). Something seriously wrong which is disheartening as we seemed to get our act together 2016-2019.

Replying To Cockney_Cat:  "Pulling for Waterford in the hurling? Well that's gratitude for you. We welcome you into Leinster to play your hurling, and here's you cheering on a Munster team, a province that won't have you."
We were not welcome into Leinster, we were begrudgingly allowed into the Leinster championship since it had become a one man show and a total bore for everyone except KK! We're a Connacht county that will always support the underdog - the underdogs left this year are Dublin and Waterford.

Replying To McGo72:  "Every single week she is a player that is in form. I am not sure how many points and goals she has scored but today she managed to get 3-6 against the Mayo ladies team - that is some going. Do any of the Armagh posters know if she has connections to past and present men's senior players?"
Maybe her Ma/aunt/granny was a successful player??

Because Dublin have advantages. If a county without major advantages does it.. fair play to them!

Replying To Oldtourman:  "Maybe-just maybe- if Galway met Waterford in '17 with a fully fit Jamie Barron-he had to go off that day as has had one one of the Bennetts, who scored one of the goals, Conor Glesson, a fully fit Austin Gleeson, who played though sick on the day, it might have been a different story. Today was the eleventh time out of twelve meetings that the Decies beat the Tribesmen- so they sure seem to have an Indian Sign on Galway. I hope if we don't win that they will. No county would deserve it more"

Dublin 11/8 now, I just hope that if they are caught that it's next weekend or against Mayo. There would be only one truly awful end to the glory years!
