I think he is joking...
He is indeed being a joker......have it on good authority that the 'new stadium' will now proceed at Toome...

I see the demolition work has already started on new clubrooms CB. Any room in there for a pitchside stand?
Think stand is planned for the other side....

I'd imagine Cassidy's remit with Cargin is to regain the Championship rather than win another league title, so whilst there might be a few eyebrows raised at the results I don't think there will be any mass panic in Toome just yet.
I hear Damien Cassidy was brought in to ensure Cargin would regain the league title and I can believe that when as Christmas Tree points out they are fielding at strength.
Marty Kane, Kobo,, Tony Scullion, Kieran Close, Paul Mc Can, Gerard Mc Corley, Donnach Mc Keever, John Mc Nabb and Jamie Gribbin have all been dropped and were all parked in the bench last nite.
St Gall's with a lotta young talent introduced must be strong favourites to regain the senior title 2018.. ;)

Thatís what I thought, all the best on the bench or dropped or injured! Good sign to only be best by ten at home then with such a weak team out! The Championship matters, Cargin have nearly caught on that peaking in late August early September is best..

Whatís the average now of Cargins best team? Ourselves and uses are too old for the flying Johnnies/Lamhs lads, Iíd say Creggan and Ports must feel they have chance
Gall's are the best I have seen this year........out on their own if they can keep up the gallop.

The juggernaut. Stopped. Stunned by that result. Stunned.
why do you think Cargin are so strong this year? Brennan was a top manager and now they have Cassidy...
Cargin may well be relegated this year.....sure the Galls are coming this week and likely another defeat looms large....overthehill.com.

Watched under-17s v Donegal yesterday and the difference in preparation and set-up is all to obvious.
Takes a huge leap of faith or a large dollop of optimism to envisage a bright future...

I think they might have been in Div 2 of South West for some reason in their U16 year and there was a bit of a row because they won the SW Championship Breslin Cup, but the SW puts it's League 1 winner through to the All County Final so they couldn't get a crack at it. 
They won the Feile B at U14 as well. 
In fact they are an interesting example of a team who played a lot of Div 2 football at underage and developed slowly but surely, and now a fair chunk of them are about to play in Croke Park in the Hogan Cup Final - all in key positions.  Just goes to show there's no need for all the drama if you lose an U12 match!
Cargin won SW under-16 two years back beating a very good All Saint's in the final (think Aghagallon in semi).
Brigid's beat Cargin in the under-16 final.

On another note; why is the support for our football team so poor at league games? It has never been great from memory but around 2010 / 2011 we were getting decent crowds for league games. Yesterday Carlow had more supporters than Antrim in Corrigan. I know the clash with the hurlers played a part. But 2 years ago we played Wicklow away to secure promotion, we had won every game prior to that one so we were in the exact situation Carlow were in yesterday. Now Wicklow isn't a million miles away. Apart from players families I would say there was about 20 Antrim supporters at that game. Any thoughts?
Yep......made the same comment following the Leitrim visit and such observation was kicked into touch by your good self.
Wonder why the game was switched from the original venue... ???

Will be really hoping Lenny can work the oracle and haul us out of our present misery and will be supporting him all the way.
Some regular posters on the board seem to be swayed in opinion as to just who is at the helm.
Not naming names but there are several on site who sharpened their knives and sought the heads of last season's management and cheering on the 'austerity' programme against who are singing a different tune now.
Long may they retain such positivity :)
