Just watched the first part of Fever Pitch on BBC2:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p09mqv7k/episodes/guide

The story of how football's Premier League was formed, told by its stars. What began in 1992 as a controversial breakaway has become the most watched sporting competition in the world.
I'm not a football fan (my wife is, she went to Old Trafford with her Dad as a girl) but I found it very interesting. How Murdoch's gamble in creating Sky TV paid off, and created football as a business rather than a sport.

I've seen more of Cantona in films than on the pitch. Ken Loach's Looking for Eric is good.

This coming Saturday, the 11th, will see the final of the All Ireland Gaelic Football cup between Mayo and Tyrone. The winners will receive the magnificent Sam McGuire cup and will have the coveted ttile of All Ireland winners.

Mayo have not won the cup since 1951 as on the return journey after winning the cup they were "cursed" by a priest (or a woman) for disrespecting a funeral taking place in the town of Foxford. The "curse" was that Mayo would never win another All Ireland title whilst any of the team member remained alive. There is just one survivor of that team, a man now aged 94.

Mayo in the past 70 years have reached the final on 10 occasions and on 10 occasions have been beaten somethimes by a single point.

If you can I would suggest you watch the match which starts at 5pm local time. It can be seen on RTE sports and SkySports Arena I am confident you will not be dissappointed.

6-0 is nice but I'm not really sure what we can read into the Carabao cup win, Sen. Norwich had 10 changes from the side that lost 6-0 to Man City but I don't know (and am ignorant about) how many of them are likely to get selected for a Premiership game.

It never(to me) seems to be a high priority trophy for the bigger clubs. I did get to Wembley to see Norwich lose to Villa 1975 when it was the League Cup.

Just maybe, you could take some hope from the Leicester game. I caught a bit of game updates on the BBC thing dad watches (or can be glued to...) and I read the BBC match report. My impression was Norwich played quite well and didn't "deserve" to loose.

But that's how things go. Maybe better to follow, I don't know but having Liverpool, Man C and Leicester in your first few games isn't the easiest of starts.

There have been different versions of this comment over the years. Skillful and/or foreign players would not cope on a cold wet and windy night at Turf Moor or Plough Lane etc.

Players tend to get less time on the ball before a challenge comes in. Some players struggle with that when they first arrive. The play can also be more physical here too.

Limerick ran out winners by a score of 3-32 to 1-22.

There where more points scored in that one match of 70 minutes than the entire matches of the Premiership and Championship football matches combined played over a total of 1800 minutes.

The beautiful game.

"Galatasaray's Marcao was red carded after headbutting and punching his own team-mate on Monday.

The Brazilian defender was dismissed just after the hour mark of Gala's 2-0 league win over Giresunspor after losing it with winger Muhammed Kerem Akturkoglu.

The centre-back seemed to take exception to something that Akturkoglu said, as well as the winger putting his finger to his lips in a 'be quiet' gesture.

He responded by running from his own half to headbutt and then throw punches at the winger, and had to be restrained by team-mates before he was shown a red card."

Whilst a Liverpool follower (I like that, actually), I've always had a soft spot for Spurs. I think they have a very decent squad and on Sunday they seemed to have responded with great enthusiasm to their new manager, Nuno. You could almost say they were better without Kane. Son is brilliant and Lucas Moura is grievously underestimated. Messi stayed at Barca not only in their glory days but through their long decline in recent years. "Just get the ball to Messi" was a tactic that went on for years latterly and it didn't work. "Just get the ball to Harry" won't work either. He's 28, he lacks pace and he has glass ankles (as well as too much ego for a supposed team player). I think he's past his best. Daniel should ask for 200 million and make suckers out of Citeh. Harry won't make them better.

"He's no Messi, that's for sure."

Not many are these days, if we are talking about players who stay with one club throughout their career. Liverpool have bought a number of players over the years.

I am a Spurs supporter (or rather a follower as someone called me. They have not had much of my money over the years). I would prefer Kane to stay but it does not surprise me that he might want to move. A football career is short and the number of prizes are small. No surprise that he wants a chance to win some.

Spurs might be a top club financially but not when it comes to winning things. Over the years they have always lost their better players to 'bigger' or better clubs. It is the nature of the beast.

We shall see what we shall see. Good win on Saturday but it is s long season. On another day, City will probably not spurn so many chances.

I think that his recent behaviour has been petulant and selfish. Instead of being so desperate to get to a club "where he can win trophies," he should be doing his damnedest to get Spurs to the top. They have a great new manager after a poor season under Mourinho but it is very recent that Spurs were in the top four twice, in a League Cup final and a Champions League final. He formed a great goal-scoring relationship with Son, but in his selfish quest for personal glory in a team game he seems to have overlooked that he's failed to win anything with Spurs in spite of his lionisation. He's no Messi, that's for sure.

I started this thread 3 years ago to suggest that Hurling and Gaelic football were more entertaining than the UK variety of football.

Yesterday I watched the highlights of the engliash Premiership and saw 25 goals in total from 7 matches. I also watched the semi-final of the Gaelic football competition which after the 70 minute playing period was 0-13 to 0-13. It then went to extra time another 20 minutes when the final score was Dublin 0-14 to Mayo 0-17.

So in the one match the scores were more than the whole of the premiership matches.

Just read journalistic accounts of the game mentioned in the previous post.

One of those funny games that could have swung either way,
it sounds like.
Qatar's team, while a newer entity, looked promising going in.
The USMNT team, however, outlasted them and, I believe, wore them down.
The game sounds rather ugly, with only one goal scored and an awful lot of effort to prevent further goals from being scored.

Anyway, the USMNT team has won that game and now comes
a truly emotional meeting:
USA versus Mexico, they have been fierce rivals for some time.
