Getting back to player movement, John Donaldson played centre half back for Leinster, and then moved to XMG. What was that about?

Maybe because he is from the area and had fallen out with Cullyhanna moved to Louth and then moved back to us a number of years later. No big deal. His father is at most of our games and his nephews play a huge part in the club.

There was a row involving both sets of players and supporters. What did cross do over and above this which showed a lack of grace

The Continuity Forum

Presumably just the same guys as before just without the official baggage. Maybe that will let them relax a bit. We will have to wait and see

Looks like a different set of folk.  These forums are better off not linked to official sites anyway.

How do you mean it looks like a different set of folk?

Definitely has the look and feel of the old set up. I suppose the admin pissed a few people off so might benefit from the appearance of a fresh start

The site looks similar but the explanation from the admin on the site’s  origin suggests to me it is a different lot.

You could be right but the appearance of the site and the timing of its launch would indicate some continuity.

Good luck to them. The old site was excellent in terms of format and innovation and anybody looking to launch a site would do well to copy that blue print.

2 things let the old site down and I believe one of these was its ultimate downfall.

As with any anonymous site there were people posting stuff purely to get a reaction and crossing several lines in the process. Secondly there was an in crowd of seemingly yes men who had little interest in allowing proper debate.

The 2 combined will kill any site

I met Jamie this morning at Stoneyford reservoir at 4am and he was having trouble with a 14lb rainbow trout but he said he's concentrating on fishing this year and wants to catch a 30lb pike soon but had yet to get a licence.

Was talking to him, sez he's gonna leave the reservoir in better shape than he found it, all part of a lasting legacy.

Yes he said that to me too and seemed to be surveying the whole reservoir like a man with a plan whilst ripping away at his line as he was landing another big trout. Funny I saw him this morning outside Nutts Corner market at 6am waiting for it to open. He said he was looking to get more bait and wanted to be the first man at it. He was in the same clothes as yesterday - a pair of cord jeans, sandals and a wooly jumper but you could see a Louth jersey underneath it. Hes just clean mad about fishing and to be honest im a bit sick of hearing about it from him.

I'm sure there's more to it than meets the eye. Tread carefully if you are one who is but only surmising.

Olly would get on well with Leo Varadkar, he surmises early in the morning.
