    Anyone watching it. Good on all those participating. Helps keep a bit of interest in football. Some interesting techniques in the solo challenge. Although I must say that those who do it the traditional way get more credit from me!

    Agreed it's a really good idea and certainly entertaining. I think it's not meant to be taken seriously though, but maybe that's just me. Kept waiting for a hop in the soloing to be honest :D
    I see a few others at it so must be another national idea. Great thinking trying to keep members involved with their clubs and counties. We need as many chances to smile as possible. Not going to mention "that thing!"

    Such a great idea and it gives all something to watch. Some of the introductions are just brilliant. Some questionable techniques lol but all a bit of fun.

    I’m disappointed I didn’t get a call to participate. I’ve been practising for a fortnight! :(

    Who was the eejit dressed as an ostrich?

    I have one just like it. Carna Transport. Those were the days.

    And yes, neither am I. That defeat still scars me.

    I've a Newry Building Supplies jersey somewhere.

    I see Donald T is taking part tonight - he's a shoe in to win, tremendous number, tremendous number

    Absolutely loving it, some of the introductions are genius :) The winning technique is defintely get as close to your feet as possible to reduce the distance the ball has to travel. I do think Aaron Findon was robbed :rolleyes::D

    Yes, I was wondering why some weren’t lying on the ground trying that method. Now I know why.

    Wonder what the task is for round two.

    I'm putting it out there, I think Trump might be Geezer. My reasoning behind this is the position of the watch on his wrist, don't believe me, google images of Kieran McGeeney :)
    Plus we all know that Geezer was well known for being the go to funny man/prankster throughout his playing career, Benny Tierney could only have dreamt of having Geezer's quick wit & ability to see the funny side in any situation :D It is well known that it is one of the things Geezer has found most difficult in his role as manager, shedding the joker persona to present a steely, determined, focussed front. :rolleyes:

    You might be right. I’ve no idea where McGeeney’s watch is on his wrist, but Senior v Minor manager, maybe that’s what the duel is about?

    How do you know that isn't Mc Geeneys house?
    Wow, wait a minute, you couldn't be......??
    Has anyone ever seen Bull and Geezer in the same room, at the same time?
