Quote from: bannside on April 12, 2024, 06:24:29 AMWhat about Handball lol? Or Rounders?

The recent results at Minor or under 20 level are alarming, and yet another wake up call that the gap is widening between the traditionally strongfootball counties and the rest.

As Saffs of 82 says, maybe we are Div 3 across the board, at all levels....in which case we are going to take some hammerings against top Div 1 sides.

We are a fairly prudent bunch here, no one thinks we are able to compete at the top tables. But surely we can aspire to get to the second division across the board and continue organic growth from there.

If all relevant parties (clubs in particular but also schools and co development squads) could find 10% extra from somewhere, and another 10% on top of that the following year, we would be on a much better footing.

That's a lot of buy in required - and some group/body/committee needs to start selling that soon!

Has Gaelfast made no difference then?

You know Antrim has (in football) been rubbish since the 50's?

Will take more than Gaelfast to reverse our fortunes

Would be some turnaround in 4 or 5 years to have us competing with the likes of Tyrone
2009 Ulster Final wasnt rubbish

If you think one visit to Clones in 70 years is progress I can't help you

Quote from: Truthsayer on April 12, 2024, 10:33:27 AMBoth very poor in the final, games like that I suppose. Is a boring format same 8 players week in week out and you can see a lot of it is exhibition stuff dancing together on stage and no real disappointment when beaten. Some great check outs and the 9 darter but but not big tournament rivalry and tension.. Passes a few hours but not the real thing..

Its a great nights entertainment to be fair, the places are packed to the rafters, maybe the drink helps ;D

Quote from: SouthOfThe Bann on April 12, 2024, 10:39:55 AMSome comments a bit disrespecting towards Atalanta here.

This is a side which have hit close to 100 goals in Serie A just a couple of seasons ago. Something unheard of in the league. Hit over 90 another season.

Not going as well as they were but Gasperini is a top class coach.

Should Klopp have given them some more respect then?

I wouldn't think so, Atalanta gave a blueprint on a method of beating Liverpool but ypu'd need certain players and different factors to apply that.

Atalanta were not impressive though but just took the opportunities that Liverpool coughed up

I expect Palace to get thumped at the weekend and the banners will be the edge that wins it! Who knew?
Atalanta first team to win at Anfield in 14 months and they weren't impressive?

Not really, Liverpool coughed up to clangers from the keeper and got caught out from losing position a few times, very unlike Liverpool, but hey if you think they were impressive that's ok

Salah for whatever reasons is not at the races, that's a fair reflection no?

Could hit a hatful at the weekend. Think Klopp said he didnt think Atalanta were going to be as good? with the title run in he has to rotate, Atalanta not in same position back in Italy so they flogged their players last night. Think they made one change on 88 minutes or something

I'd be an advocate of putting out my strongest team, put the home leg to bed and move on with a lesser tea the next day. Thats probably why I'm not a PL manager  ;D

2 Howlers from keeper

Think what actually lost the game was the protest from the fans over the price of tickets next year.

No banners at the ground

That and Liverpool were rubbish, looked heavy legged, no snap in their play. No doubt the second match will be a humdinger

This team is busted! Liverpool just need to keep pressing

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on April 11, 2024, 01:31:22 PMIs Alonso not on the list of managers keen to take over from Klopp?

Already said he's not leaving leverkusen wants to manage them in Champions League

Which is fair enough and smart too, following Klopp straight away would be some act to follow

Could be counterproductive. Imagine the rows and fallouts that might develop with players having to remind referees of the rules or pointing out every mistake or inadvertent error they make. They're only human at the end of the day and sometimes prone to making the odd gaffe.

They do anyways
