Brilliant performance so far from Roscommon. Some brilliant patient play. Lovely scores, managerial masterclass so far. Game management brilliant.

Pure quality deserved draw for Monaghsn. Karl o Connell take a bow.

Mcguigan pure quality.

Super kick from Beggan.

Enjoyable game of football. Monaghan doing well.

Is the GAA about inclusion or elitism? Probably the answer is somewhere in the middle and a line must be drawn somewhere. I think competitive football should not start until at least U12. Why? Well because its a barrier to keeping quite a lot of kids playing if they are seen as the weak link that loses games and its not just coaches, its the kids themselves and its parents on the sideline. What's the bloody rush, by the time the kids are 13/14/15 they will be playing competitive games so frequently they'll be begging for a break.
A lot here blaming coaches but I suspect that its your own little Johnny's that you're worried about and maybe you are living your past failures as players through them and you can't wait to see them lift that cup? One guy defining kids at U11 by being weak and strong - unbelievable stuff.

I’ll ask again Itchy, for I’m all ears:

I’d be particularly interested in learning how you would run coaching sessions for 11 year old boys without regularly identifying “weaker” and “stronger” players to pair off with each other.

If a strong player is playing with a weaker player, the weak player won't get a look in, the stronger player wont pass to him. You can encourage the strong lad to pass, he just wont. At go games we always had stronger teams & weaker teams, worked well. Everybody needs to get as equal time as possible playing. Its about development & weaker players wont develop playing with much stronger players. Better playing at a level they are comfortable at. Its always great to see a weaker player, staying at it & moving up to play with the stronger players, because he was developed properly.

I take it, no more Newry Mitchells U12 National competition. Which was excellent, very well run. The odd competition at U12 level is certainly no harm, even at U10. Probably lose more lads to other sports now.

Hammered off the face of the earth for the last 55 minutes. Ryan, Furlong, Sexton & Sheehan were big losses. Some of the French players were unnatural monsters. Replacement No 3 for Leinster was not up to it. Leinster were about 10 Meters from the French line under the posts with 3 minutes or so left, drop goal territory surely?

No mercy in society. Nobody shouting stop anymore. There was a time when a brave child or passerby would shout stop or intervene. No empathy or compassion. Just feral thugs.

Shocking game management from Arnagh

Last 10 minutes have been very good.

Great to see a full house for a provincial final. No doubt we will get some sort of contest too.
