Brolly's blanket, shakes = beard and the rest of the week's best comments

Cheers lads.

Peter Pan is tired of the complaints of how odds are stacked in Dublin’s favour, he knows just how it feels to be really, really, really, ridiculously good at what he does.

Complaining that Dublin are the best right now because they have the biggest population is like my mates complaining that I get all the women because I’m the best looking.

The Summer Bay Devil gives credit where it’s due.

“In fairness Dublin don’t get the credit they deserve for the one in a rows of 1995, 2011 and 2013″

Shane Kearney took one look at Aston Villa’s assistant manager after they lost to Leyton Orient

“God help the Villa players in the dressing room……..god help them”

After hearing Joe Brolly would be next in the firing line for the world’s favourite charity challenge of the ice bucket variety, Stephen Kilbane was wary of the cute-hoorism at play.

“Brolly will probably use the auld blanket defence”

Everyone stand up and applaud Sean Barber for this two-word masterpiece during Everton v Arsenal.

“Seamus Goalman”

Martin Donovan has the solution to make everyone happy… except Jamie Heaslip, natch.

“They should send Heaslip over to one of the NZ Super Rugby franchises for a year. It would mean that Seanie could be played at 8, Conan would see more game-time, and Heaslip might pick up a thing or two that would help Ireland beat the All Blacks.”


After Ben Blake brazenly boasted about his incredible physique, I Love My County was suitably impressed.

“Jesus the shakes really bring on the beard… Must give them a go!
Fair play to you Ben”

Stephen asks the important question after we got a glimpse of Penn State training in Ireland.

“Could they kick a point from 45 metres out against the wind in Milltown Malbay on a cold, wet Thursday night in December though?”


And yesterday Dylan proved that his gambling has gotten to the point of recklessness after this 103-year-old challenged whipper-snapper Usain Bolt to a race.
