However, in 2014 they had 19 at this stage and still failed to win the title, finishing fourth.Arsenal’s training ground is next to Watford’s in the county of Hertfordshire, just north of London. Indeed, Watford’s HQ was formerly used by the Gunners, but that is where the similarities stop.Newly promoted Watford have had a reasonable start to life back in the Premier League, winning two games, at home to Swansea and at Newcastle, taking them to 12th place.last_img read more

FORMER IRELAND MANAGER CRITICISES DONEGAL COUNTY BOARD OVER MURPHY FINAL DECISION

first_imgFORMER Ireland International Rules manager Eugene McGee has launched a verbal attack on the Donegal County Board over its decision to go ahead with last Sunday’s county final – forcing captain Michael Murphy to play two games in two days.The Glenswilly man celebrated his second Championship medal win on Sunday as his side brushed aside Killybegs.The match took place less than 24 hours after Murphy captained Ireland to victory over Australia. McGee said the fixture should be taken more seriously.“We had a ridiculous situation where the captain of the Ireland team had to play a full match on Saturday night and then go back to Donegal to play with his club team in the Donegal county final,” McGee said.“That is not acceptable. It is asking too much, although it did go well for Murphy as he was a great success in both games.”McGee also criticised the Australians for their performance.  FORMER IRELAND MANAGER CRITICISES DONEGAL COUNTY BOARD OVER MURPHY FINAL DECISION was last modified: October 22nd, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AustraliafixturesglenswillyIrelandMichael Murphylast_img read more
