Cavan just to win is the bet of the day lads. I'm not sure what they are now?? I backed them at 11/10 during the week.

As I mentioned on this already last week they beat Westmeath by 11 pts in a challenge, ok challenges are not something to go by when it comes to championship football but Westmeath were only without 2/3 players. Back Cavan on the handicap too!

Hopefully Meath and Wexford can put up a good show today, cant see us beating the Lillies but you never know. Tomas OConnor to score the first goal may be a good bet.

Up The Royal.. Cool

Waaaaaoooohoooooooo!

Ecstatic! That was just awesome.. Who seen that coming?

The Meath Senior football team have been as unpredictable as the Irish weather over the last number of years, the players are certainly there it was just a matter of them stepping up to the plate and being counted, by god they did that today. They say a bad league is a good championship eh? Grin From 1-15 and to all the substitutes introduced were outstanding today, first to every ball. The intensity and tackling was outstanding.

However, nothing is won yet, a Leinster final to look forward to!

Gowan Wexford!

It's true to form innit that Dublin or a major team beaten the likes of Louth by forty or fifty points does no one any good especially players, fans and especially punters. They get carried away saying Dublin plus 10 are buying money..If Dublin hadn't of have a game until today. This been their first game i bet Dublin wouldn't have been -10 or whatever it was -5 would have been 10/11

The mercurial Shane Dowling at 9/2 before Limerick played Antrim to be top scorer in the Hurling has softened the blow. Still a deuce looking for a point in 23 mins is hard to take.

Heartbreaking for Wexford. They played great stuff in the opening half, definetly the better team but they let themselves down in the second half, some silly mistakes and fouling you cant afford to give away at this level and the All Ireland champions punished them. They have been very unlucky to bump into Dublin again. Adrian Flynn was outstanding, Brosnan surpisingly missed a couple of placed balls in vital stages of the game.

Bring on the Dubs. Cant wait.

Enjoy the remainder of the weekend lads.

Ah Gant he executed it superbly didnt he ? Grin

Whatever it is about him he is just a great man to get inside the defense, down on goal.

The Bunsen Byrner!!

Personally my MOTM would be toss between Gillespie and Carroll. Carroll must have covered every blade of grass on Jones Rd. today. For a man thats only 21, making his first senior appearance in Croker he was simply outstanding. There is more to come from him, he could be the new Trevor. Gillespie made some fine fetches, he is still raw but he gets my vote marginally.

Who would you give MOTM to?
Report GANT007 July 1, 2012 6:56 PM BST
There will never be a new Trevor.........He is a fair lad to have as team physio.
The new young lads were great......I'd say Banty let them go out and just play the game.
Gillespie will get motm imo but Graham Reilly was excellent......Trappatoni should have brought him to Poland- probably the best Irish based soccer player.

What is the Kilkenny v Galway match in this week?
Report Rocketfingers July 3, 2012 8:48 PM BST
I did not get a chance to watch the extended highlights on the night so only watched the Sligo v Galway game earlier this evening. I can't believe the price of Mayo, Sligo destroyed Galway, Galway got a handy number of frees in the first, most Sligo scores seem to come from open play. Mayo destroyed Leitrim, they're a decent team but it was Leitrim. In fairness Sligo +4 at even money seems generous to me, given that Sligo performance i may be biased but i think we're better than that.
