Him & Ricie would have been similar characters on the pitch, anyway enjoy your retirement Ciaran.

FFS. Ricey could run the length of the field and score. Ricey rarely got the line. Ricey has 3 AIs. Never say that again.

Any decent city breaks from Belfast around Halloween? Looked at Krakow but I think I would rather go in summer.

Come to Tyrone.

Marvel at the Ardboe Cross or play football facing the lough and swallow midges. Embrace the mountains of Pomeroy and gaze at the hills above Drumquin and the verdant braes of Brocagh. Drive around the Hollywood of Tyrone, Donaghmore, or visit Strabane for a bit of Ross Kemp stuff.

Will Connolly start? Will the officials be nervous?

We'll beat the Dubs, with him or without him.

Laying down at work today because my bad back was playing up and then getting my leg trapped against the table a wall in the vacant office. Then the University girl on a year's placement having to free me from it.

That kinda grind my gears today.

People saying "laying" when they mean "lying." You lie in the present tense, you lay in the past.

I seems to be almost universal in US speech to use the transitive 'lay' (to lay something down) for the intransitive 'lie'.
Present tense, 'lay', past tense 'laid'.
I am laying down. I laid down yesterday.

Lay down the law, Hardy.

That bollix' hasn't got laid since 1999.

This Hoffenheim crowd were brilliant at home last year. Think they won every home game in 2017, bar one draw, including beating Munich. Probably a good time to play them though.

If we can't win the war, win the fight. Employ every dark art there is. Spook these manufactured hoors.

Hard to read much into that result. Monreal was the pivot for the defence. Hilarious stuff but forced on them by injury.

It's even more than that. We're being told how shit county football is by pundits on RTE who make a nice sum from telling us that...and that there needs to be a more socialist model. You have the same pundits monopolising print journalism for very handsome sums, regurgitating articles for various publications in the same week at the expense of qualified journalists.

Sick to the teeth of this acute analysis of the present.

Look back over provincial score lines right back the 70s or All Ireland semis or finals. Some real blitzing sessions, especially at AI semi final stage. It won't be like that this year. There have always been 2 or 3 teams far better than everyone else, bar a few years when there was an evening-out. Tyrone won't always be there. This Mayo team are on their last legs though they have been a fairly consistent county in my lifetime. Dublin and Kerry will nearly always be there. Galway, Meath and Cork will rise again...and so on.

The amount of football on TV now is only highlighting that fact to the general public.

Secondly, a lot of these 'club-first' men are lamenting the gap at the top of the county scene. Fcuk the county scene then.

Finally, football isn't a great product. Never was, unless the real class sides met. Again, TV saturation is only showing that now. It's a lot better, technically and physically,  than 20 years ago though.

Maybe I'm wrong but it's a bollocks to listen to. The county scene isn't the be-all and end-all.

Safe travels to everyone today. Banter aside, I hope we get a game that confirms Ulster as the best footballing province. Prediction - Tyrone 2-19 Armagh 0-8

Yes. Can see Armagh getting a late flurry of points.

Geezer hitting Dooher.
