Gaa social a fantastic podcast. You wouldnít get a much better one than the Brian canavan episode. Must listen to the Kevin hughes one.

Am I the only one who thinks they are constantly a sad story  :o

No you arenít. Thatís the sort of stuff that ďsellsĒ though nowadays.

I dont mind that if it's an interesting story.  It has been nice to see/hear a more personal side to some GAA stars.  I'm not sure the Francie one should have went ahead though. It sounds like it would be great to get an exclusive etc but i just felt for the lad having to endure something he clearly isnt comfortable with.

The Joe Brolly podcast has been off to a good start.  Joe has found a platform where he can ramble out all of his musings and wont really be cut off or challenged too much.

I liked Francie's. He spoke better than I thought he was going to.

Lads what's the story with Dunloy football
Now I know about all the hurling craic, fair enough, same year in year out
But 1 point in 11 games, from a team who only lost an intermediate final 3 years ago in the final minutes
20 point hammering tonight at home
AND, they're in senior championship this season

If they were intermediate they would be liable to win the thing ffs. Different side come championship

Does anyone else get the distinct feeling that some posters  will be all over this discussion thread like a bad rash the minute Antrim get beaten. A couple of good recent wins just dosent suit their agenda.

Andy came onboard when this squad was in absolute rags and is doing a very solid job about rebuilding it. Personally I couldn't give one toss what club a player is from, when he is honoured to be invited into the squad, puts in the sheer hard work, and takes pride in the jersey strongly enough to be a valuable member of the squad,  we should support them.

Yes it's a discussion board and all about opinions...but try and stay classy.

I've had a pop at plenty of management teams and will be consistent in that regard if and when our current set up goes stale/dressing room becomes lost, but in the interests of balance let's be able to give genuine credit when it is deserved.

And CB, please note that the vast majority on here don't give a fiddlers toss about how many medals people have. If they are along the line they will only be judged on results and even more important in any coaches book, performances.

Absolutely they are busting to,  dying to see Antrim lose to say i told you so.

To call a spade a spade Cargin were extremely lucky to get anything out of the Naomh Conall game last year. They just about stayed in it and then got lucky with the goal and won on pens. They were TURGID against Glen. No shot from play in 1st half, set up not to get hammered. You could argue "we only got beat by" but to any of us we know it may as well ha e been 30points, it was a non event

They've beat other teams in Antrim when the county is at a low ebb, that's it. Haven't made a mark in Ulster bar that penalty win last year. Cannot be compared in the same stratosphere as the St Galls team who went toe to toe with anyone and everyone.

I wish Cargin did win Ulster, i wish they improved our Countys standing, i wish they would throw off the shackles and have a real go in Ulster but fear age has caught up with their better players, the time for that was 5 or more years ago. Just because you win Antrim  when Antrim were at a low ebb does not guarantee all your players start for the County. Shivers can take a point but doesn't move....we  ALL need him to work on that to I prove our County's fare

Compared to the like of a Tomas McCann (who was an absolutely and utterly exceptional footballer for us and a certain starter) he doesn't compare. I'm disappointed he walked away but I appreciate he's young and it's balls not playing any football

The hyper sensitivity re the ex management is bizarre

Perhaps you will let us all know about your clubs Gold(en) years.....

And there's a bit more hyper sensitivity if evidence was needed.....the bad man said something I didn't like so I must have a dig at him about his club as it makes me feel better.

What club, such remains hidden from prying eyes....

Same up the 'Hill.....

I think he's a Crossmaglen man

Our primary school tournaments are competitive, and we have a competitive league and a non-competitive league that run on the same day. We openly call it our competitive team and our development team. It works very well and every child that wants a game of football in P6 and 7 can go! There has to be some element of competition involved as children love competition from they're no age! They'll even race to the front of the dinner line if it means they win! A middle ground and common-sense approach is the best scenario. For underage games up to maybe u14 I would like a competitive half/quarter/third or whathever, of football and then a half where the score doesnít count and everyone can get a go!

As someone said earlier, itís the parents who are the problem 99% of the time! I have friends who turn into different people when it involves their own kids!! Usually becoming the people they once complained about themselves!

How often should you get an automatic gearbox serviced?

BS i certainly would not want to portray Pat as such.  By all accounts he is a level headed fellow with his feet firmly on the ground.    He can only do what he feels is best for his own development which at this moment appears to be in Cargin rather than with Antrim.

Isn't supposed to be a condescending post. We are all allowed to have opinions and some will value the tailteann cup more than others which they are entitled to do

Maybe he's on a plane to America soon!

Haven't got to watch the match yet but how did David Clifford do?

Great comeback and win. McCann is some man for a goal. Class

Disappointed Shivers walked away. Hopefully he can work on pace and strength and fitness and come back better conditioned for it next year because his talent is obvious but he's still young

Didnít know he left the panel. Very good footballer but maybe doesnít have the pace for inter county atm. Still only young and Iíd say he will be back on a county panel in the future if he wants it.

Smashing win.  Will the McEntee critics on here acknowledge progress is being made?

And remind them that the previous manager thought Ruairi McCann was too old and not good enough 🤷🏽‍♂️

You would think with the over reaction here that the lad was shot, it goes on in every game. Look at the off the ball stuff that happened in the Armagh and Derry game and not a word about it. Just the usual letís bash Kilcoo!

I'm struggling to remember a game that I saw something as cowardly as that, nevermind it happening in every game as you claim. sc**bag move!

The RG trial by social media maybe isnít as clear cut. And it would appear there is some truth in these allegations. But whatís to stop some head case of a woman making some total lies up about an ex and plastering it on social media. Heís automatically guilty, even if it is complete lies. Life ruined.

After Brannigans antics v Carryduff I hope he never pulls on the Down jersey ever again.

But what else would you expect from the holier than thou sheepmen...

Just seen the video...absolute tr**p

Cowardly act. When was this? I hope he got a smack in the mouth in retaliation for it!

You wouldn't want to be in an emergency to get to the Royal Hospital on a match day with 34k ppl trying to get there. But as someone has said, plenty of places in England manage to do it on a weekly basis. GAA people are too used to taking the car to places and 'thrownin her' up on the curb and dandering 5 mins to the game. Getting on the train to Casement, parking in City Centre and getting a bus, parking at the playing fields in Boucher etc. I am sure once Casement is built and after a few years of teething problems it'll all be straight forward. Not having a first class stadium in the 2nd biggest city in Ireland is embarrassing.

Gallagher is finished in the GAA. I see his webpage for the firm he works with is gone as well.

What happens to a man like this now? He is done in football and I'm sure he will find it hard getting a job outside of football.
