King would never put up a thread like this, they're are people who make money at betting richters, people who break even richters, people who lose and then you a complete Mug richters Laugh

Without doubt the worst betting thread ever, you met a guy in a toilet in a pub that said he was a former intercounty footballer and he told you to be worried, sounds ominous what happened next !
Report Distant View May 5, 2013 11:31 PM BST
I did not see this thread until it was brought up tonight.

Kevin Egan wrote a good piece on this yesterday and made a valid point about other areas such as Boston getting a shot at this tie in future years.

It will be interesting to see footage of the game and see what the likes of Rory Woods would like. He took months and months of training when with Monaghan to get near championship fitness and I cannot see how he could have been near that level in his current surroundings.


New York Weakness

New York are no longer the threat they once were. Emigration continues to be a big issue in Irish society, but the Big Apple is not as popular a location as it once was. There are plenty of players in the New York team with former intercounty experience, however the standard of play in New York has struggled to keep pace with the improvements in general standards back home.
Since Leitrim escaped with a narrow extra time victory in 2003, New York have only once lost by a single figure margin in this tie – and that was against Galway in 2010, where complacency may have been a factor.

Leitrim certainly won’t take a victory here for granted, regardless of Sligo’s big win last year.

Leitrim Championship Displays

Leitrim may be a division four team but they rarely put in a bad performance in the championship. They lost heavily to Mayo in last year’s championship – and Mayo proved that there was no shame in that – but they still rebounded well to put in some excellent displays in the qualifiers against Wicklow and Laois.

Their league campaign this year wasn’t as good as they had hoped, but they lost by a point to Offaly and two points to Limerick, who both ended up contesting the final. With a full strength team, they should be able to rack up the scores that are needed.

Lack Of Preparation For New York

It’s simply impossible to prepare properly in New York. The logistics behind getting their squad together are daunting, while back in Ireland, even the worst county teams now train properly for five or six months of the year. Several of New York’s better club players don’t make themselves available due to the huge time commitment of getting from the various boroughs up to the Bronx, while their preparation consists of playing matches among themselves and against local club teams.


Lack Of Leitrim Goals

The big danger here is that Leitrim aren’t a good goalscoring team, so they aren’t necessarily built to cover large spreads. They failed to score a goal in three of their seven league games and while that’s not a terrible record – on average most counties will fail to score at least one in three times against evenly matched opponents – the deployment of Emlyn Mulligan at centre forward does rob them of a potent inside threat.


New York Could Be Way Off The Pace

There is potential here for a handy win –New York’s domestic challenge match results have been very poor and while we’re inclined to treat such reports with scepticism, it’s quite possible that this particular vintage is not the best prepared New York team in recent years, or anything close. Enthusiasm for competing in this fixture has waned Stateside and many feel that other areas like Boston, Philadelphia and San Francisco should be given the chance to compete for this slot. There is a possibility that New York are way off the pace and lose by twenty points or more as they did last year. Ladbrokes are the only firm going -9 points with the other firms all going -10 on the visitors.

New York Selections Puzzling

The New York team selection has a few odd choices, such as the placement of CJ Molloy at midfield. The manager’s son is not noted for playing in such a central role and generally lines out further up the field. In general, the Exiles look quite weak at midfield and half back and they could be overwhelmed here. Additionally, if half forwards Jason Kelly and Conor Lynam are forced to cover back to plug gaps, that will really hurt their attack. Of course the art of naming dummy teams could be at play here, but there aren’t any obvious other choices to fill the centre field berth in the XV.


Getting 70 Minutes of Full Championship Football From Leitrim

As with any large handicap, the danger here is that there is nothing in it for Leitrim to push on and win big. Just because they’re capable of winning by a double figure score doesn’t mean that they will do – either they could be happy to keep New York at arm’s length in the closing stages, or else they could concede late scores to scupper our bet. Hopefully competition for places in a squad with plenty of players returning from injury should keep us safe on this score.#

Momentum From Positive New York Start

Momentum is the big danger here. As much for traditional reasons as any other, a large crowd tends to attend this fixture and if New York get away to a good start, that crowd will get behind their team.
Leitrim need to get out to a lead early and kill the crowd factor.

Good morning Pa,I should refrain from biting myself.
There is valid and informative discussions on here too(Gant put up a good winner of the bumper yest),the main reason I will put up a horse is to hear people's counter views and possible flaws that I have not thought of.

The best threads are the Irish meetings where races are discussed rather than just putting up names(Nap,Boom-This will win win etc).

I also enjoyed Wildman's Conspiracy threads even tho I disagreed with more of them than I agreed with, but he has a viewpoint and backs it up(sometimes very stubbornly).

Didn't back it myself - but I wouldn't be backing Leitrim to beat anybody by ten points (or for that matter I wouldn't be comfortable backing anyone to beat them by ten)- seemed reasonable punt to me.

Before the match I would have thought Leitrim by 6 or 7 point; I was also surprised to see it at ten ( I very rarely do handicap betting anyway).
