Did they find the sniper that kept shooting at naymar last night. In fairness he kept getting up and played on. That lad is as hard as nails.

The way Antrim are hurling at present the Christy Ring is their level and I wouldnt be surprised if they lost a play off against the Christy Ring winners.

If Carlow had have came to Belfast to actually hurl instead of dishing out physical violence, they would have beaten Antrim out the gate.

Westmeath have 14 hurling clubs (a much lesser pick than Antrim) and with an astute manager in Michael Ryan they are playing brilliant hurling. Carlow and probably Kerry would be in the same boat.

While Antrim are more than capable of playing excellent hurling with plenty of very good hurlers (eg. the second half v Westmeath, first half v Kerry) it would appear there are no tactics or gameplan, The amount of aimless clearances out of defence that landed into a Westmeath paw last week must have been at least 70% and yesterday wasnt much better.

Antrim on a county level have been on a steady slide to hurling oblivion since the county board in their wisdom decided to appoint Jerry Wallace over Dinny Cahill, who had Antrim punching well above their weight especially when you think of the performances against Tipp, Wexford and Dublin. We were ahead of Carlow, Laois and Westmeath at that time. I remember saying at the time that Antrim would regret getting rid of Dinny and unfortunately that has been the case.

The present management team really have to go. 2 of them failed the previous time and a 4 man management team dosent work.

It is time for the county board to get their heads out of their hole and cop on that club hurling in Antrim is on life support, especially at lower levels. A hurling county with ONE hurling development officer does not cut it. We would need at least 4 or 5 more at least.

Saffron Vision my hole.

is the pulling of a faceguard a yellow or red card offence? I have noticed this year in club games it has been given as a yellow card offence however in intercounty games in previous years it has been a straight red

Its a red card, if seen by the ref

Thereís your problem! Thats very rarely seen by the people that matter unfortunately. Itís very easy to say ďI didnít see itĒ  If seen it most definitely isnít a yellow! IMO

But how can a ref see through a ruck of players to see it happen?
Austin Gleason would be the man to ask

MR2 as paranoid as usual. According to him anyone in a black shirt can do no wrong. The report on the saffron Gael page was written by a Dunloy man. NAH it was a physical game and there were poor tackles from both teams and when the ruckus started players from both teams were swinging digs. It happens some times, don't get yer nickers in a twist.

Imm ok
This discussion board isnít the place to bring up some of the things a lot of our forwards where subjected to off the ball. Some of our forwards are kids in senior terms. Come championship when the Ref has umpires that stuff will disappear. Thought your manager let himself down by arguing stone cold frees,  Itís up to him to Instill some discipline.
On balance that was a hard game to Ref and O Neil did fine
For what itís worth there isnít much in those two teams and when you consider cushendall had more players on for Antrim the day before I think the Dall are still the team come championship, sure the bookies know the score.

Disappointed to have lost to Dunloy. Thought we were the better team for much of the game. You'd have to question the free count. Dunloy got 14 scorable frees, we got 5. We gave away 3 points from short passing errors and Dunloy had 4 frees moved forward 10 yards and scored them all. Never the less pleased with the display of a lot of our players. Dunloy now very much favorites for the championship having beaten ourselves and loughgiel.

You will find the other team will get more frees if your discipline is shocking.
Dall where intent on making some sort of statement but some of it bordered on thuggery. M o Neil moved some balls for you guys to when dunloy players where mouthing. How can you complain about the ReF when he fell for a Mc Manus special inside the square. Never a penalty, all in all the decisions balanced out and dunloy deserved the win

Team v Laois
                          1 Ryan Elliott.
2 Stephen Rooney. 3 John Dillon. 4 Arron Graffin. 
5 Paddy Burke. 6. Conor McKinley. (Capt). 7 Ryan McCambridge.
           8 Eddie McCluskey. 9 Simon McCrory.
10 Nigel Elliott. 11 Conor Johnston. 12 James McNaughton. 
13 Donal McKinley.  14 Conor Carson.  15 Daniel McCluskey. 

16 Chrissy OíConnell
17 Matthew Donnelly. 
18 Neil McAuley   
19 Conor Boyd. 
20 Conor McCann. 
21  Neil McManus. 
22  David Kearney. 
23 Gťrard Walsh. 
24 Eoin OíNeill. 
25 Ryan McNulty. 
26 Ciaran Clarke
27 Keelan Molloy
28 Conor McHugh. 
29 Tommy Burns

Don't feel Carson is fit for a full game better coming in off the bench. Good to see McNaughton starting brilliant player however Gťrard Walsh should be starting imo one of the best in the county, that half forward line is scary if it gets time to hurl

The half forward line wonít win much puc outs!

You mean the ones coming down 70s style with snow on them
How many inter county forwards have to win them these days

Confirmed. Fair play to the lad - first year outta minor too.

Wait till he returns from the WC with his fragile confidence shot to bits by the media expecting miracles from him.

God forbid he makes a mistake which costs a goal, he'll be hounded.

Unfortunately thats the issue with TAA (& Gomez). Very good for 95% of the game but liable to make a naive mistake and get caught on the wrong side/ball watching that leads to a goal.

Makes you appreciate just how good Steve Finnan and Rob Jones (for some of you older lads  ;) ) were.

He left himself exposed when they played Man Utd and Rashford took full advantage
I havenít seen him do it since. Heís only a pup be learning very fast. Not the finished product yet but will get there.

FFS like the Stoke game they wouldn't have scored if they were there for another 90 mins.
Massive pressure now on the Brighton game. Top 4 should have been secured weeks ago.

That was brutal, Salah has lost his mojo and Firmino not much better.
Brighton wonít be quaking in their boots after watching that. Letís hope they find some form before Kiev

Christ, are you basing that on two games. Salah and Firmino have played brilliantly all year. I would expect they will be flying for the CL final.

Yeah I am basing it on the last two games. If you read my next post I even suggested tiredness. Who was talking about the CL final. Imm more worries about the Brighton must win scenario because of how poor we have been this last three weeks. Again just for you I put it down to the emotional and physical drain of CL games this last month. ďOK HoneyĒ

The weeks break now might be very valuable, and then 2 weeks before Kiev. I didn't see much of today bar the last 10 minutes and about 5 minutes before half time. Liverpool looked to have a load of possession, with Chelsea sitting deep. That's the recipe alright. That's where the likes of Coutinho is still missed. Anyway, no injuries I take it, so a full week, tear into Brighton, and maybe Huddersfield and David Wagner can do Liverpool a favour before then. Spurs must be nervous too.

Was thinking that myself, they are playing teams who are fresher due to no European football. But still Liverpool always keep you sweating.

The Liverpool supporter in a critical condition after being attacked is Sean Cox, 53, who is heavily involved with St. Peter's GAA club in Dunboyne - he's a former chairman of the club.

Though presumably we'll have some "edgy" attempts on the part of posters who have vilified Liverpool supporters in the past to label him as a "football hooligan".

Agreed heís sounds like a real candidate for a underground firm running about looking for trouble. Well done to anyone on here trying to link this man and the clowns who stoned the Man City bus.
