It’s Beatlemania All Over Again

Classic Dexy's!

DMRC goes into classic fanzine-mode when describing the recent form of O’Connell and O’Gara for Munster in the Heineken Cup:

“… no less than the leadership of O’Connell and O’Gara – each of whom has been in vintage form, whether as Superman/Enforcer or ice-cool quarterback/match winner extraordinaire – McGahan concedes he has been blessed not only with their winning mentality on match day but their leadership throughout the week.”

  1. Either lazy journalism from Thornley or he’s believing what the gimlet-eyed feckers are spinning him:
    “For one of the world’s leading brand names (the only other team on the planet kitted by Adidas are the world champions)”
    Off the top of my head I can think of Argentina, Stade Francais, The Aukland Blues and the Crusaders and there are doubtless a few more.

  2. Reminds Sandpiper of a comment by Garry Kasparov: “In chess, the rules are fixed, but the outcome is unpredictable; in politics in Putin’s Russia, the rules are unpredictable, but the outcome is fixed” – which side was the LAPD on when the Beatles came to town?

  3. Don’t want to start annoying a tiger, but Jees lads you’re getting as critical as west country Pete! Gerry of thornley, lord of the scribes is how I like to refer to him, an acronym that lends itself much more to his Swiss toni / des lynam persona. Anyways, I don’t want to be messing and then for it to come across as malicious, so i will stop that there….the fella is a top writer who has written a fairly see through piece encouraging munster fans to support their coach – fair enough position to take really. The stuff about o’gara / o’connell….if there’s an issue with credit being put their way, then – to paraphrase robert (not burns) – me thinks you don’t blog about the blue the way you do for the red.

    I haven’t been an admirer up to now, but today was another sizeable success for the munster coaching ticket and they have wiped the floor with their scarlets counterparts over the 2 games. Today their early fakes to go to maul from lineout were very clever and then for the try they didn’t fake. Lanelli didn’t know where to defend and it was a try before they knew what was going on. When you compare where both sets of players were prior to this double header, there have been a few heavy psychological blows landed on the welsh lads.

  4. I thought that was some gentle, gentle poking, Paddy O – one sentence, and the worst of it describing his ‘classic fanzine’ prose!

    For the most part, we let the ball do the work …

    • Aye I’ve maybe been a bit on the harsh side there. Don’t want to be a fawning, nodding dog, yes man to you all the bloody time! Enjoy the writing man, fair play to you
