I didn't, I said they were replaceable.

I think Karl is actually a better and more effective footballer than Chrissy.

I agree, though Chrissy has a part to play provided he's chosen in the correct position and given a job to do which, in my opinion, is a dedicated man marker in the full back line. He's very effective at that.

We will be much stronger with the Slaughtneil contingent back.

I like the make up of our panel at the minute and it gives us options, something lacking for a long time.

I wouldn't be getting carried away with ideas of promotion just yet, though I'm sure that is the aim. If we can get a top half of the table finish in Div2 that will still be progress.

Chrissy is better than Karl. Chrissy is guaranteed his place, Karl isn't.

You’ve got to break lines and get into the scoring zone, absolutely no point shooting from stupid angles or distance, we tell kids that every day, DG had players zone marking, very limited space and in football possession is king. Their tackles didn’t create too much turn over ball, as Kilcoo were very comfortable on the ball snd a player always in support.

Patients paid off, if a team sets out like that you have to adopt, you’re not playing for the TV, you’re playing for you club, no trophies for losing with style.

Not being overly knowledgable on the old football but surely with all this S&C going on a lad can kick a ball over from 45 metres out from the hands in open play and the scoring percentages would be higher if it was feckin practiced...

Having to try and work the ball to 30 metres out and less plays into the hands of teams packing the defence out in this zonal system with everyone inside their 45...

Kilcoo worked that goal well but if it hadn't of came when it did before half time then you could have well saw another 30 minutes of the same...

With no offence at all intended - That is a nonsensical post.

Very underwhelming lead up to the National League campaign.

I'm sure whoever played that game the other night will have been a fringe or squad player getting their chance so wouldn't read too much in to that...

As things stand, Starting 15 for the Div2 opener for me would be:

Burns

McCartan
McElroy
Fegan
McCormack
McParland
Mooney

Doherty
Connery

O'Rawe
Laverty
Guinness
O'Hagan
Gilmore
Quinn or Havern (If fit)

Badly in need of the Kilcoo lads to come back in. Anyone know why Shane Annett isn't on the squad? Always quality any time I've watched him

Who would win - That team above, or Kilcoo?

A good start for 2 of the new boys.

Hatate was excellent, his use of the ball and range of passing was impressive.

Maeda got his first Celtic goal 3mins into his debut, his pressing and work rate was also very impressive.

Celtic brought some energy last night. Jota coming on, Ideguchi also came on for his debut, hopefully Kyogo, Jullian & Turnbull aren't far away - would be serious options.

Bear pit of a Division Two this year, wouldn't like to have to put any money on calling it.

Not sure how much can be taken from the FBD league for Galway, mixed the good with the bad, this league will tell a lot.
Opening game against Meath game is massive for both sides, two sides with recent Division One experience and looking to get back up there. Galway need to win that one at home having 4 away games I think.
Cork are the wildcard, could be very good, could be awful. Derry might fancy their chances at a title.

Derry do fancy their chances at a title.

Serious result for MTU Kerry (formerly IT Tralee) to beat UCD today by 5 in Tralee. Tony Brosnan and Jack Savage impressive up front apparently. The fact that both of them were asked to travel to Templetuohy for a meaningless trouncing of Tipp in McGrath cup this evening - and both came on - is actually disgraceful really and utterly pointless.

MTU Cork (CIT) beat UCC for the first time ever in Sigerson. Was at it and it was a decent quality game, tough and played in freezing fog. The 2 MTU's now meet in the winners round next Tuesday in Cork. UCC v UCD in losers round could be a humdinger. UCC missing a few big players tonight might shade it if they can get some of those lads back on the field.
Brought on at the last weren’t they? Manager should have the jaws slapped off him for that one total disgrace.

At the last waterbreak - both got 15 mins each having already played a match earlier that day & Kerry were up by about 15 points. Don't really see the sense in it myself. They didn't do the same with David Clifford anyway

Great that these games are free to watch on the Firestick. Enjoyed the Down & Antrim game last night, very enjoyable game for the time of year.

What channel. I could not get them

yeah i was wondering the same, beo sport is hardly available on the firestick, unless you have an iptv provider that pays for the games surely?

Available on the GaaGo channels on the Firestick

I actually tried the GaaGo  channels i have on mine but none showed Down v Antrim.

I take it you mean iptv and not an offiical app on the firestick?

Yeah IPTV on the firestick. £40 a year - Bargain!!

Any updates on club management appointments for this year?

Senior

Glen - Malachy O Rourke & Ryan Porter
Slaughtneil - Paul Bradley & Karl Lacey
Magherafelt - Damien Barton & Brian McGuckin
Lavey - Jude Donnelly, Seamus Downey, Johnny McGurk & Seamus Scullion
Loup - Fiontann Devlin
Coleraine - McGoldrick
Bellaghy - Damien Cassidy
Swatragh - Kevin Madden
Steelstown - Hugh McGrath
Ballinascreen - Mark McCullagh & Mickey Gallagher
Newbridge - No Manager Sorted Yet
Claudy - Not sure?


Add away / correct any misinformation

Banagher not senior?

Were Newbridge relegated from league or championship?

In fact if anyone knows which clubs are playing in each League/Championship throw them up. I heard Desertmartin were appealing to get playing a division higher or something but not sure how they got on.

Your right, i think Newbridge were relegated when Clady beat them.
