When was this draw made? Isn't on the Ulster Council website.







Last night i dteach s'againne up the lane over the cow grid past the dogs and hens and through the near always open door(was never sure why that is especially when it is freeezing out - although there is an inside door as well) except there was no teinidh mhónadh as it was warm enough and it being early enough in Autumn round our way.

An old woman who does not have red hair but was on her way to a wake house presided over the whole lot as is traditional on Ulster Club Championship  Draw Night and all screwed up bits of paper with the Counties of Ulster written on them were mixed up in the colander which hardstation lent us from the new topic he started which is now on Page Four of the Non Discussion Board.

Antrim fell through the bottom of the colander three times so they can have no complaints about being in the Preliminary Round for the second year in a row.

The details of the draw were sent to the Ulster Council by text ar maidin which is much handier now than the times when a fella on horseback used to deliver them.

That's a seriously short price for St Galls given that Cavan Gaels beat them in Casement last year.

10-1 is tasty for Cavan

Post by: Wee Roddy on September 30, 2009, 12:32:54 PM
I like the look of Clontibret but if paper is anything to go by then St Galls are the team to beat. They would not be popular winners as they are a gather up though ;)
Dromore i suppose would be good enough value with Cross away but not just because I am from Carrickmore, but ourselves and Ardboe offer the best value out of Tyrone at 20/1 each. The 2 Derry teams look ludicriously short to me. Cavan Gaels are due a run in this competition
Title: Re: Ulster Senior Football Club Championship 2009
Post by: botman on September 30, 2009, 12:35:09 PM
I think Ardboe is worth a sneaky tenner. They'll prob win the Tyrone champ I'd say and bar St Galls no real heavy hitters left in the Competition.

I doubt it.

Ardboe are only in the semifinal of the championship where they will have a tough game with Killyclogher on Sunday. 

From the other semi Dromore stuffed Ardboe in the championship semi final last year while Carrickmore gave them a good pasting in the league in July so I seriously doubt Ardboe are favourites for the Tyrone championship.

Even  at 50/1 Ardboe would be poor value to win Ulster and not because their not a good side but because if they win Tyrone they will go on the booze and will drink themselves rotten same as Cargin do when they win Antrim.

They will likely not be favs in the final. They're only favs right now because the bookies have them as very strong favs to get the to the final, whereas the other semi is laid more tightly with Dromore narrow favourites. (for some reason)

Cavan Gaels put up a great score in the final yesterday. they beat us in Casement park last year. this game is Cavan Gaels to lose.

 we play them in two weeks down in Cavan. why would they not start favourites? they have won their own championship as much as we have lately

Forde was talking about making a major impact in Ulster this year, so they are looking beyond the men from Milltown Row ;)

I wouldn't be too familiar with Cavan or Antrim football but a friend from thereabouts tells me the Ulster champions will be one of the two, gaels or St Galls, with a sneaking feeling for the Gaels. Anyone want to call that match as if their money was on it?

Monaghan champion's Clontibret are a great bet at odds 13/2.  Get on them at that price.  Heed the Pieman's advice, it's free.

I can vouch that there wasn't! I'd say it was more to do with the performance of Dromore in Tyrone, was it that impressive by the way, to justify the change in odds? Assuming they win Tyrone, which I think they will, I'd imagine the odds will drift further. Wait til then to get your money on!  ;)

prob was down to dromore's performance, and wile it was impressive, they havnt been playing well up to that, before the carrickmore game they were 14/1 which was  great value, down to 13/2 now which is a massive cut due to one decent performance

Aye and it's not like Clontibret's win in Monaghan wasn't impressive itself, amazing there was such a drift in odds just down to other teams performances. Obviously the Tyrone champs will be favourites in Ulster quarter final then, perfect!

Clontibret down to 10-1 in PP now.

Might be better suited in another thread given that this one is just about Ulster, but here's the odds for the All-Ireland club:

Id would have to be St Gall's for me. Seen them both quite a bit in Ulster this last few years and watched Cavan Gaels beat Gall's a year or two back. Just think Gall's have the better team on paper and seem quite fired up this year, Rory Gallagher isn't a bad addition either.
The only concern is both have coasted to their respective county titles and have yet to be really tested.

best value has to be the Tyrone winners. should it be Ardboe then i fancy us to win that one. a bit of ulster championship history in that one. Our manager played in a game years back that i remember, and we owe them.

dromore, different kettle of fish. good team and unlucky last year against Cross. pretty fit and have beaten all th good teams in Tyrone to get to the final.

Gaels beat us last year and truth be told we are stronger and panel is back to full strength. Playing the Gaels in their own back yard will make them favourites and Seanie is taking some scores lately, coupled with the high scoring final they had, I'd say its very even.

but i might have a go at the 10/1 for Dromore if i were betting

The game in Cookstown in '87 when Ardboe beat Galls is what I presume you are referring to?

No odds up on paddy power on ladbrokes as yet UTB.

To win ulster you need a fair slice of luck i feel i.e the way it is ran of quit quickly keeping players free of injury and suspension is essential, especially if strength in depth is an issue.

Think st gall's are rightly favourites, coming through yesterdays battle should stand to them as they barely got out of 3rd gear in antrim. Ogs will celebrate well and rightly so, think galls will have too mcuh up front.

Dromore were very lucky to win yesterday but tough side of the draw.

Connor McManus has been on fire for Clontibret so alot of their hopes will be on him.

Loup are dogged and pretty experienced at grinding out results and with home advantage would be favoured to pass Derrygonnelly. Depends how much derrygonnelly really want it or just content with county championship.

Think kilcoo and eunan's is very hard to gauge.

Unreal how Dromore are seemingly unanimous favourites against Clontibret in Ulster, they were shorter odds for Ulster even before the final for a while. Sounds like they scraped through in a game Ardboe were very unlucky to lose, while Clontibret's demolition of the reigning champs in Monaghan was forgotton about not even a week later. Dromore hot favourites across the board, couldn't have asked for any more really.

Clontibret aren't bad - but I do think it'll be close.

Clontibrets biggest problem is that according to the results in their run through Monaghan - no one got near enough to touch them at all.

Not trying to take anything away from Dromore by the way, think they're a very good team and will be a tough proposition for anyone. And certainly not trying to play ourselves up, but I must admit I was a bit surprised at how some people think Dromore have it in the bag and are talking up a Dromore-Galls semi already(not specifically talking about here). Looking forward to the game and I think both teams are at that stage now that they're ready for a serious crack at Ulster after a few good years in their county championships.

The Konica, in the semi and final we won by good scores in the end alright(though we were behind at half time in the semi and it was a fantastic effort to turn it around), but I believe the turning point for us was the games against Blayney. Now they were real battles, we only got won by 2 pts after a replay and extra time. The replay was one of the best games I've seen in the county for a good while and that test has stood us in good stead ever since, and gave us great confidence to win the following two games, scoring well in the process. Step up now anyway, should be a good contest.

Eh, that's nothing to do with the original point I was making. The only reason I was talking about scores is because Konica was saying noone got close to us, and I was saying that the Blayney game was very tight and gave us confidence for the next two games. I'm well aware of the low-scoring nature of Ulster games.

Not trying to take anything away from Dromore by the way, think they're a very good team and will be a tough proposition for anyone. And certainly not trying to play ourselves up, but I must admit I was a bit surprised at how some people think Dromore have it in the bag and are talking up a Dromore-Galls semi already(not specifically talking about here). Looking forward to the game and I think both teams are at that stage now that they're ready for a serious crack at Ulster after a few good years in their county championships.

The Konica, in the semi and final we won by good scores in the end alright(though we were behind at half time in the semi and it was a fantastic effort to turn it around), but I believe the turning point for us was the games against Blayney. Now they were real battles, we only got won by 2 pts after a replay and extra time. The replay was one of the best games I've seen in the county for a good while and that test has stood us in good stead ever since, and gave us great confidence to win the following two games, scoring well in the process. Step up now anyway, should be a good contest.
Clontibret are favs with most bookies and are the biggest movers in the outright all ireland and ulster betting, so i don't think there's too many (with much of a clue) talking about the 'dream' semi between galls and dromore.

Well Dromore would have to be favourites now anyway, JP Mone and Conor McManus out injured. :-\ Two big men to be missing, it leaves a big gap both in midfield and attack.

galls are at home as well aren't they??  Loup are dodgy favs (boyles have them at 1/7!!), but Derrygonnelly may be very poor, and Eunan's are traditionally content with a county title (see mattock rangers presumably), Kilcoo didn't look too bad from what i saw of them in the down final either.

Well JP had a knee operation recently, and despite how badly he will want to recover in time that's highly unlikely. And McManus went off injured in the league semi-final on Sunday with a suspected fractured arm, and even if it's not that bad it still looked too bad to be ready in a week's time. That's the extent of my knowledge, unless it's some big elaborate plan  that's being kept within the panel which I doubt! I hope the injuries are being exaggerated, it would be fantastic news if even one of them were fit enough to play some part but at this moment it would seem it's too soon for both. We're not a one man team, but that's two huge players to be missing when going into a tough Ulster game. JP's experience will be missed badly in midfield and he's had a fine year, but missing McManus up front especially is the killer. We've other good forwards, including current and past county players, but McManus has been the player of the year in Monaghan and top scorer by quite a margin. He's racked up big scores in every game and everything good in an attacking sense has gone through him. Just saying that to show what a loss he'll be for us. The other lads will just have to step it up and try and fill the void, and the defence in particular will have to keep Dromore to as low a score as possible if we're to have a chance.

I'd agree with them, but Dromore to draw too, beware the team with 'injuries'.  Re TG4 and tv coverage, apparently they're planning to show deferred coverage of the final, if it doesn't clash with a munster first round hurling game that is (although this weeks munster hurling match should be a cracker).

course they should turn up, just because they beat Cross on their way to the Armagh Championship doesn't mean they will be a good bet to win on Sunday. thats like saying, had Portglenone beat Naomh gall in Antrim that they would be a good bet for Ulster. (no offence to Portglenone)

people are predicting a galls win based on past performances in Ulster, Ogs to their credit last appeared in an Ulster final in 92. so you can see why 'others' are going for a Galls win.

those odds are false, in my eyes anyway. 
Title: Re: Ulster Senior Football Club Championship 2009
Post by: yellowcard on October 29, 2009, 11:10:16 PM
Looks like the money is talking in the Dromore v Clontibret game. Clontibret can be backed at 8/5 with Bet 365 having started the week at evens. Massive drift in odds which suggests only one outcome.

The value bet has to Pearse Ogs at a ridiculously big 11/4 with Paddy Power. An Armagh team will have no fear against an Antrim side and with a very tight defence they must have a good chance of getting past an over-rated St Galls outfit. Thats where my money will be going this weekend anyway.

A free pint in Casey on Sunday to the 1st poster who can find the "made very clear" being on the internet before the Preliminary Round match. (There was no mention in either Gaelic Life or the Irish News beforehand either).

A week is little good for the boys considering the injuries they have. Perhaps JP may be able to take a bench spot at a stretch, but the only thing that's different with McManus now is that he's had a broken wrist for two weeks instead of one, hardly a significant advantage over last week. I'll tell you this though, Dromore may beat Clontibret, but this Clontibret team won't be beaten handy at all, by Dromore or anyone else for that matter. Either way it'll be low scoring I'd imagine, bad weather all week and I wouldn't say the Clones pitch will be in good nick at all.

Yeah he broke his wrist alright, but had the cast took of this morning apparently and it was heavily bandaged. Fair play to the lad for having the balls to come out and play only 2 weeks after the break, and playing well enough considering. 4 or 5 points, solid frees and a great one from play. It'll be tough for him now having played a full game and Galls coming up in a week's time, but he'll do his best.

Great result, good end to end game and thankfully we came out on the right side. After going 4 pts up straight away and then up 5 early in the second half, things looked good. But credit to Dromore, their fighting spirit showed once again and it was a very nervy finish. We missed a few very scorable chances at times when it could have gave us a bit of a lift, but things were tight up front. Both defences looked good I thought. No doubt Dromore will be back up there next year and will be favourites for Tyrone, very good team.

Very good performance from Clontibret, well done.
Dromore tried their best to make up the hard points on the heavy pitch.

Clontibret v Dromore was a close fought typical Ulster Club c'ship game and fair dues to McManus for playing the way he did through the pain. It will be some battle with them and St Galls next week. I'd imagine St Galls will be favourites but I think the winner of this game will be Ulster Champions this year.

Having been at the Ogs v St Galls game today, I'd say St Galls have gone backwards from the team that contested an AIF a while back.  Ogs should have won, missed a sitter with a few mins to go and hit too many shots wide or dropped them into the keeper's hands.

After watching that today I'd say St Galls are still very much favourites for Ulster. Is Kevin McGourty the boy running for Fine Fail? He did some mouthing today.

Congratulations to Clontibert in winning a good game of football in tough conditions.

Clontibert were out of the blocks early and stormed into a good 4 point lead before Dromore replied. Dromore fought back and brought it to two points at the break. I wasn't too worried at that stage as Dromore fininshed the half strong. Clonibert started really well again hitting two and puting themselves in a great position. Dromore came back at them and pushed very hard wining in defence and getting a better grip in mid field. When clontibert dominated in parts they did so all over the field. When Dromore dominated Clontibert defended very well. Dromore dominated most of the second half but were shooting under pressure and sometimes foreced into decision making. Clontiberts attacks were more economical and accurate.

It was encouraging to see Dromore push all the way to the end in a very tough battle but they were always chasing the game and Clontibert seemed to get it right in front of goal.

Clontibert were very impressive and good luck to them in the rest of the Champioship.

Well done to Kilcoo. What a show off football.

Ye reckon???


I thought at times we were quite poor in their half. Sure, some good individual displays, but as a unit, our forward line never really functioned. We never cut to the core of Eunans once.

None of the fast flowing football in the final third that has been produced earlier in the year - although the heavy pitch may be a big factor in that.


The defence came onto a game at the end, but up front, much margin for improvement IMO (not that that's a bad thing).

Obviously the tough season has taken its toll and a fresh Monaghan team should win next week in Armagh.....

I'm not sure of your situation but Clontibert can't be considered fresh. The changes they made reflected their injury worries and it was a tough game today in which they are bound to have picked up a few bruises. Dromore looked fitter as the game was closing. Clontibert played a smart game and were aided by a strong bench from what I seen.

Have to say I thought Clontibret looked very good today. Resilient and have a few players, McManus in particular, who can take a score.

I think St Galls may get beat in this one though I hope I'm wrong. JP Mone will likely get fitter the next day.

On a side note Dessie Mone once again got his man sent off today - a recurring theme. Him and the McGourtys against each other should be fun to watch.

Still an outside chance of a repeat of Loup - St Galls final though...

Mickey Garry not as influential as previous games and Dromore did not get Shaun O'Neill and Ronan McNabb on the ball ofter enough as they always looked like they could do something. McCusker and Snowy were well marshalled while Conor McManus gave cathal McCarron bother all day and it is the first time I have seen Fabian O'Neill struggling as badly.

Thought the first 10 minutes of the second half were the turning point of the match, Clontibrets dominance at this point undid the previous 20 minutes fight back by Dromore and some of the Dromore players almost looked beaten at that point but they roused themselves for the last 15 and but for some unforced errors could have levelled it.

:D Don't worry, yous are hot favourites and we're underdogs again. That was a tough game yesterday and we picked up another couple of knocks to go along with McManus and JP being less than fully fit. We're far from fresh, and we're coming up against one of the favourites for the AI, nevermind Ulster. We're very much up against it, but sure all we can do is give it a lash.

Ah Dessie's reputation precedes him again, I'd really love to what what exactly he did to ensure McCullagh got sent off. McCullagh elbowed him in the face right in front of the ref after a minor tussle, which opened his nose up and forced us to use a blood sub while he was cleaned up and got another jersey. And yet McCullagh was sent off for a second yellow for giving out to the ref apparently. Don't think McCullagh is a dirty player, not what I've seen of him anyway, but it would appear in this case he only has himself to blame.

I would question just how much the strong bench aided Clontibret as they effectively only replaced one from the starting 15.
JP Mone came on but was replaced later by a sub, the third sub came on in the last seconds.
More than a few of the Clontibret players were out on their feet in the last 15 minutes.
Grimley is a hard taskmaster.

think Karl played under Mickey Culbert a couple of times, no Championship games though. from 82 to the late 90's there could have been a stack of 'Antrim' players that only played one or two Championship games ;)

all managers say the same things (well accept Dinny) but really we all know that all the players are fit and raring to go. should be a good game. should be 1-3 points in it to the winners. the Loup game should also be tight. the Derry teams have a great record in Ulster so i expect Loup by two

Schkite, your very quiet leading up to this game. seems ya have no chance. reading todays' Irish news the manager was looking for rain and players aren't fit and blah blah blah.

all managers say the same things (well accept Dinny) but really we all know that all the players are fit and raring to go. should be a good game. should be 1-3 points in it to the winners. the Loup game should also be tight. the Derry teams have a great record in Ulster so i expect Loup by two

Ah sure you're right, we've no chance going by the bookies and who most people are tipping!  ;) Read Declan saying that in the Irish news yesterday alright, in fairness the Dromore game being postponed because of the rain helped us out with the two lads recovering, so I can understand him looking for more bad weather! Playing again only 7 days later won't help with a couple of knocks we picked up, but you're absolutely right, the players are raring to go, that was seen last week with Conor and JP playing through the pain barrier. Hopefully they're ready for another battle on Sunday. I hear yous have a couple of players with knocks yourselves, hopefully all are ready for what should be a good tight game.

see your manager was talking shite today again in the paper, said that the referee will give us easy frees!!! this coming from a team that 'earned' frees to win the game last week!!

unfair pressure on the referee right away. i'm a referee myself, if i read that today and was refereeing i'd certainly have a different view on things.....

Yeah I see he's been talking again, don't really see why he'd do that to be honest. Don't think we need to talk like that and I don't see the benefit of talking to the papers anyway, especially the likes of the Irish News who, lets face it, are hardly going to side with the view of a Monaghan team against an Antrim side.

Don't know what you mean however about us being a team that "earned" frees last week. Every scorable free we got was very clear-cut if you're suggesting they were soft.

He gave off like ya never won a free!! course you earned them but to think that we will try and con the referee is silly.

should be a good game, not looking forward to finding a parking space tomorrow. two games at the venue tomorrow will e mental for traffic.

stayed away from the betting for it. no goals seems the best bet at 5/2

As I say, don't know what he was thinking talking to the papers, but I'll leave it at that.

Traffic bound to be brutal alright, not been at the Athletic Grounds for a while so not too sure what parking wil be like.

5/2 for no goals seems good enough value alright, I know we've been defending well recently, at preventing goals especially(hopefully that continues tomorrow), and yous seem to have a solid defence aswell, going by reports and the amount you concede. It'll probably be a low-scoring encounter again, as Ulster games usually are, and hopefully it'll be a good game too.

Extremely disappointed after that, it's been a long time since I've been as down after a game. The one point defeats to Cross were hard to take because of how close we were to winning, but this is completely different. I can't remember the last time we've been well beaten like that, it must be years.

First of all, hats off to St. Galls. A superb performance all over and we had no answer for their attacking which came from everywhere. Some of the play was excellent, in particular the pass for the second goal was sublime.

But it's hard to stomach when we played so poorly, nowhere near our potential and the final scoreline reflects badly on a team which is alot better than it suggests. We were making elementary mistakes all over, the kind these lads would never make, and passes were going astray etc, and whenever we made a mistake there were always a few Galls men there to take advantage. Their tackling and workrate was very impressive, we would usually do well in that department but not today. Things were looking alright early on, but when we missed 2 goal chances in a row when we were about 2 points up, you always had the feeling it would come back to haunt us. And McManus the man that missed them, usually he'd put them away in his sleep, but he tried very hard today and landed a few fantastic points. Who knows what could have been if even one of them went in. But once Galls got a foothold and scored a few points in a row, our heads went down. Very surprising, as this team would be mentally tough but there was no sign of that today. We were cleaned out at midfield and any time the was a breaking ball it was usually one of the Antrim men who collected it.

We were beaten by a much better team at the end of the day, but it's annoying to know we could have put up a much better fight. Good luck to Galls, it was a virtuoso performance and I think they'll win Ulster and have an excellent chance of landing the All Ireland.

Well done to Loup on beating us today. They finished stronger with the extra man killing us. Paul Youngs goal was worthy off winning any game. I would like to applaud our lads on a wonderful display. However, Paudie Hughes was a disgrace. He firstly harshly sent off Marty McClean for very little, he gave Loup many handy free kicks and he denied us a very scorable free at the end to draw it. Ive said it before this w**ker should not be geting big games. An absolute scum bag. Well done Loup.

Ah they were all good to be honest! A real team performance. The wing-backs did very well on the attack, set up a good few scores and at the same time keeping our half-forwards on the back foot at the same time. The midfield did well as I say and their players in the middle third mopped up alot of breaking ball, can't remember who in particular. Rory Gallagher and CJ hit some very nice scores. Couldn't really give you a name who was best, it was all a bit of a blur at times!  :-[

I have to agree with that. The performance of Hughes today was shameful. As well as doing his best to prevent the game flowing he also gave many, many soft frees to the Loup. Kilcoo players and spectators have every right to feel annoyed and angry at his performance. However well done to the Loup, they didn't pick him and got on with it. Their No 15, Paul Young was very handy and was their outlet for nearly every ball. They also were very accurate with their shooting and only kicked a few wides at the death.

His performance was that bad it wasn't inept, it was sinister... definitely leaves you wondering about impartiality.



Galls will hammer the Loup. On another day with another referee, we'd have put 20 points on them.

finally St Galls let loose, might have been a different game had those chances had have went in. but seriously good football from just about everyone in Blue. expected more From Clonibret but their main men, bar McManus failed to show up. the support play was top drawer and so many men having opportunities to score. think Clontibret scored 2 from play. Referee must have read the Irish News ;)

we'd a few boys down with injuries early on, would be a sweat for them making the final. we've a great bench at the minute

so the Final will be against The Loup, a lot of our lads played in that final 6 years ago, young pups at the time so this will have a little edge to it. said earlier that Derry teams have great tradition in this competition. and The Loup grind out results. i expect it to be tough. hopefully the game will not be in Clones. too far away. Healy Park or Armagh please.

1/2 was a great price Schkite don't ya think?

Kilkoo no 14 and 8 are County Standard players.I was dissapointed with C Laverty, or maybe he was well Marked. The ball to him could have been better, & I cant help but feel that Kilkoo beat themselves.

Ahem! Don't you try and start that shite.

The ref is a disgrace to the GAA. First 50mins was as bias a performance against a team as i ever seen. He favoured westmeath in everything giving crazy decisions to glennon.
Then he goes and sends off healy for at most yellow card. The other incident wouldnt of happened.

Moral of the story that ref shouldnt be let ref a game ever again. And remember im a neutral.


One of the worst refereeing displays of all time !!!


Should never get another championship game - a reserve referee on a good day.

unfortunetly lads if you were from clubs in Armagh you would see that this is the particular standard all over in fact Hughes would be rated as one of the better ones lol if you ever get a chance to have a game refereed by a certain mr Quigley then you will most definetly be frustrated to say the least. The standard of referees in Armagh are shocking i have been saying it for years. I hope this is mentioned in the game reports if nothing else it might spark some reformation:)

Dont know how kilcoo men can complain about he ref when he gave you some handy decisions.  Firstly gave a handy free in defence when it wasnt and you ended up getting a point from it. Secondly hopping the ball when our forward was for taking a free kick and said he took too long to take it even though we were 2 points down and no need to waste time - its just the way he takes them. Thirdly giving an easy 20 yard free kick for a third man tackle when your man kicked out as ours first.  Allowing an extra 30secs to a min to try and let you equalise.  Granted your mans sending off was cruel but you have to careful when on a yellow.  And after that he booked any loup player for coughing wrong so he could try and even things up.  The booking after Paul Devlin was shot sorry fouled and dived like he had been watching Tyrone DVDs for the last week was a joke.  Cant blame the ref for all your misses and the fact that you should have been 6 points up at half time.  Once we scored the goal there was only one winner. 
Thing about it is I would have wished any Kilcoo man all the best in the final so no point having sour grapes.  Anything after the county final until your in the ulster final is a bonus. So celebrate your county victory and stop your complaining.  Yes if we were beat i'd have complained about the ref but would have said ah well we would have loved being in this position at the start of the year.
Sorry if my English isn't the greatest tonight but i'm just home from the club celebrating with a few pints.

Sorry but i guess its just the manner of what happened that has annoyed a lot of us. There is geniunely no malice towards the Loup and we do wish them all the best in the final. They've a good game plan and a few superb players. St. Galls will be a step up in class from ourselves but hopefully yous can take the game to them and win the title.
Where I say yous were strong against us was your accuracy when shooting and the delivery of the ball into Young and the layoffs he provided. You did struggle though when we ran at you after a defender was either stucked in or caught on an overlap. Hopefully that can be patched up for the final though! Also you'd need to watch the bookings, some were debatable but many for pulling and dragging and off the ball tackles weren't. The two cases where Loup players were booked for tripping Kilcoo players making a run are case in point. Both of these were picked up by the umpires.
In terms of the referee. Yes the examples above are correct, however with the exception of the extra time (also worth bearing there was a subsitution and injury during it) all the examples occured earlier in the first half. After 15 minutes we seemed to get nothing... The Loup goal as well taken as it was should have been a free out to Kilcoo 30 seconds before and as well as that the ball in came from a Loup "free" where the linesman had already signaled a line ball to Kilcoo.
Perhaps is a case that the step up from the static game in Armagh was too great for him. Where skills such as the solo run and disiplined tackle disappeared during the late 90s. Maybe as a result of Francie's exploits over the last decade physical contact has resulted in that big a casuality list that its been outlawed. Whether the man was biased (in my view) or just plain useless doesn't matter now. The fact that the so many are discussing him is never good. Lets just hope lessons are learned and thats the last time he's allowed to venture beyond the whin strewn borders of armagh.
Come on the Loup! Get stuck into them frankies and win it for the clutchies!

I was in Casement yesterday and, as a neutral, I enjoyed two good competitive games of football. Having read previous posts concerning the ref's performance in the senior game, I would have to say that if I were a Kilcoo supporter I would be asking some questions.

However, yesterday I witnessed one of the worst scenes of thuggery I have ever seen at a GAA match. After the game as the ref was leaving the pitch a Kilcoo supporter in the stand stood up and threw a bottle at the ref.

Now, before you ask how I knew the thug - I deliberately use the word - game from Kilcoo, well, I was sitting beside this group throughout the game and the fact that they were holding black and white flags and wearing Kilcoo tops just might give it away.

Is this how far down the mire we have gone? Who does this thug think he is? What gives him the right to throw anything at any GAA official?

Does anybody believe that such an act is acceptable?

The point is that no matter how bad an official performs we must have standards of respect and decency. Without them we have nothing.

St. Galls were fantastic yesterday, particularly in the second half as Clontibret's belief vanished altogether. Not a chance the two teams are as far apart as suggested though, and it might have been a different game had McManus (lovely player btw) tucked away either of the goal chances. Think it was Gribbies made a last ditch shoulder for the one that resulted in a free out, which was obviously the correct decision!

Think Clontibret got a bit desperate even before the second goal went in. JP Mone touched the ball twice I think after he came on and was clearly nowhere close to fit.

CJ and Gallagher took some lovely scores, and CJ's ball in for the first goal was fantastic. Enormous work rate meant Clontibret never had any time on the ball and particularly within our own 45, an attacker was often swallowed up by three defenders. Some of Kevin and Aidso's catches were magnificent, although Kevin couldn't go the game without letting his mouth run at least once and was deservedly booked for it. Favourite moment of the match was in the last five mins or so. Aidso was coming out with the ball and hand-passed it over the no. 15, who tried to body-check him and got absolutely flattened for his efforts!

Repeat of 2003, when like many of our Ulster final defeats, the team had the ability to win, but didn't deserve to on the day. I too hope that the Ulster Council sees sense and doesn't put it on in Clones. The Bellaghy final was in Omagh, although I'd prefer the Athletic Grounds again. I left where I live in Meath at 12.35 yesterday, caught the last ten mins of the Harps-Cookstown match, and was back home for 5.15.

Also, congratulations to St. Teresa's.

If I was a Kilcoo man I'd definitly feel hard done by yesterday, thought the big midfielder getting sent off was very harsh but as somebody posted earlier when your on a yellow you have to be very careful, as for you RadioGaaGaa you are an idiot to suggest that you would you's would have stuffed the Loup with a different ref, this was always going to be a tight game and if the 2 teams played 10 times there would never be more than a couple of points in it.
I think you's would have got more decisions from the ref if a couple of your players hadn't fell over looking a free every time there was a gust of wind.

Don't think we have much of a chance against St Galls in the final but sure its great to be there!

Gallsman, it's never too early for mind games, I normally start each year around about May!!!

An interesting stat is that in 31 years only 17 teams have won the title with over half of the shared between Armagh and Derry.  Obviously my own clubs figure skew this a small bit but I reckon there would have been at least 1 winner out of the teams we beat in Armagh. 

I will be cheering on St Gall's, if The Loup win that puts Derry football ahead of Armagh football and we can't have that now.  Also I reckon the St Gall's have a very strong chance of winning the AI this year.  There are no stand out candidates who you would be scared off and I would love to see Antrim get the success that it deserves and maybbe give them the belief that they can really do something at county level.

I'll even give the score. 0-9 to 0-7. Johnny McBride will have McGourty sent off in the first half and another St. gall's player will also get the line.

Having only seen St Gall's once (AIF they lost to Salthill despite imo being by far the better team) I think that they will win any club game if the pitch is dry. Saw them in person in a huddle on the CP pitch and me and my mate both commented how physically slight they were. Maybe they have bulked up since then.
Personally always like to see the city teams do well in this competition.

How Rory Gallagher never got busted is beyond me, he just roared in various Clontibret players faces for about the last 20 mins, total knob.  Good discipline from Clontibret I suppose.

Clontibret's disallowed goal was dubious.  I can only assume the ref gave a free out for a touch on the ground, but it clearly came off the 14's knee/leg.  Could have made a big difference.

I personally thought he did touch the ball on the deck but would not have surprised nor upset if the goal had stood. Should never have been in that position.
Think kevin mcgourty showed a lot of self discipline in not to react to his constant harassment by clontibrets no. 5 whereas the old kevin would have reacted.
Also think the turning point was in moving terry oneill to the half back line and anto healy to the full back line. Both would be naturally attacking players and immediately put their markers on the back foot and terry also won a lot of dirty breaking ball.

on the goal I was a bit unsure of what happened, first i thought he bounced the ball twice, then someone said he touched it along the ground. as it happened I thought it was a goal. could have been a different game though on Clontibret's performance i doubt the result would have been different.

how he missed the other one :o  he'll have nightmares over that

I too think it was disallowed due to a double hop, however I think this was very harsh as the 2nd hop was an attempt to control the ball after McManus lost his footing with his attempted dummy of the keeper.

If that's true, why would it matter? Just because you lose your footing doesn't give you the right to touch the ball with the hand again does it? The question people should be asking is why he didn't have the confidence to go for goal without having to round Gallagher, especially considering how well he'd been showing earlier in the match.

You weren't lying about the mind games, were you?  :D

We're disliked as a club in Antrim, and Belfast in particular because we win things. A lot. When I was playing, all the rows that broke out were in matches against the Johnnies or Gort na Mona, those were where the real arseholes lay, although I'll happily sit down and have a laugh with many of y former nemeses. My brother's team won every championship, football and hurling from U10 up as far as I know, setting the foundations for the senior team these days. That team was followed by my own team from which players like CJ, Mark Kelly and Burky have come. We've had a blessed generation of extremely talented and dedicated footballers, don't hold it against us folks!  ;)

Dont know how kilcoo men can complain about he ref when he gave you some handy decisions.  Firstly gave a handy free in defence when it wasnt and you ended up getting a point from it. Secondly hopping the ball when our forward was for taking a free kick and said he took too long to take it even though we were 2 points down and no need to waste time - its just the way he takes them. Thirdly giving an easy 20 yard free kick for a third man tackle when your man kicked out as ours first.  Allowing an extra 30secs to a min to try and let you equalise.  Granted your mans sending off was cruel but you have to careful when on a yellow.  And after that he booked any loup player for coughing wrong so he could try and even things up.  The booking after Paul Devlin was shot sorry fouled and dived like he had been watching Tyrone DVDs for the last week was a joke.  Cant blame the ref for all your misses and the fact that you should have been 6 points up at half time.  Once we scored the goal there was only one winner. 
Thing about it is I would have wished any Kilcoo man all the best in the final so no point having sour grapes.  Anything after the county final until your in the ulster final is a bonus. So celebrate your county victory and stop your complaining.  Yes if we were beat i'd have complained about the ref but would have said ah well we would have loved being in this position at the start of the year.
Sorry if my English isn't the greatest tonight but i'm just home from the club celebrating with a few pints.
PS St Galls willl be very very tough.
Sorry but i guess its just the manner of what happened that has annoyed a lot of us. There is geniunely no malice towards the Loup and we do wish them all the best in the final. They've a good game plan and a few superb players. St. Galls will be a step up in class from ourselves but hopefully yous can take the game to them and win the title.
Where I say yous were strong against us was your accuracy when shooting and the delivery of the ball into Young and the layoffs he provided. You did struggle though when we ran at you after a defender was either stucked in or caught on an overlap. Hopefully that can be patched up for the final though! Also you'd need to watch the bookings, some were debatable but many for pulling and dragging and off the ball tackles weren't. The two cases where Loup players were booked for tripping Kilcoo players making a run are case in point. Both of these were picked up by the umpires.
In terms of the referee. Yes the examples above are correct, however with the exception of the extra time (also worth bearing there was a subsitution and injury during it) all the examples occured earlier in the first half. After 15 minutes we seemed to get nothing... The Loup goal as well taken as it was should have been a free out to Kilcoo 30 seconds before and as well as that the ball in came from a Loup "free" where the linesman had already signaled a line ball to Kilcoo.
Perhaps is a case that the step up from the static game in Armagh was too great for him. Where skills such as the solo run and disiplined tackle disappeared during the late 90s. Maybe as a result of Francie's exploits over the last decade physical contact has resulted in that big a casuality list that its been outlawed. Whether the man was biased (in my view) or just plain useless doesn't matter now. The fact that the so many are discussing him is never good. Lets just hope lessons are learned and thats the last time he's allowed to venture beyond the whin strewn borders of armagh.Come on the Loup! Get stuck into them frankies and win it for the clutchies!

I think it is quite obvious to all what even Armagh men think of the afore mentioned ref, he is not up to the standard but it does not warrant this bullsh-t Magpies. His refereeing is not a reflection on football in his club never mind county. We will not churn out the records from the late 90's regarding club and couty titles won by the folk from the orchard compared to the mourne men it would only depress you more.
As a Kilcoo man you should be proud of what the boys have achieved and having seen them in most championship games they are a credit to the club and county (at least 3 or 4 should get a run out next year in the red and black) Ten minutes into the second half against Mayobridge you could only dream of waht has happened since. I won't argue the ref done you no favours and quite possibly an Ulster Final spot was denied by his actions but it is simply down to him being a below standard ref no matter where he comes from.

milltown a bit of the old former falls road siege mentality comin out there. Cross was still right they could name the winners at an early stage. Loup have had the easy end of the draw in derry and ulster wonder how they will do now with better opposition

Unlike Armagh there are no easy championships in Derry

and armagh is easy ? with the best team in ireland over the last 13 years in it, . dry ur eyes if cross had been in any other county they still would have created the records. and some of the other teams in armagh would have won titles in the other counties, namely dromintee and pearse ogs.

Fair play to St Galls, when these boys are training and playing football it means they are not out stealing cars and the like.

Wise up you fool.
No doubt Cross where/are a great team and would have won alot of titles in any County but there is no way in hell they would have won half of what they had won if they had to play in the Derry Championship as last 15 years.

For f**k sake they could set their training so that they would peak for the ulster club because they where up against f**k all in Armagh.

your taws wanderer, It is clear to be seen that there is a better standard of football overall in both Tyrone and Derry than in Armagh. Having played club football over the years ie Armagh senior championship and division one football i can say this without hesitation. Now don't get me wrong the top 4 or 5 teams in Armagh would have competed but they certainly wouldn't have been successful in either of the two counties . Cross are obviously an exception, they would have been challenging for every honour in either county but they wouldn't have won 13 county titles in a row and a couple less ulster and All Irelands. But it is all hypothetical talk because they don't play in Derry or Tyrone they play in Armagh and they can only beat what is put in front of them. But i think you have to acknowledge a better overall standar of football exists in Derry and Tyrone.

This is whats balls. Derry people go on about how tough their Championship is. Yet can they really back it up? How many of your teams have gone on to win Ulster in the last 10 years? Genuine question by the way. I know Ballinderry and Loup did.
Derry people talking about Derry football reminds me of English people talking about English soccer. They claim to have the best league/championship around, they claim their players  are all elite yet when it comes to the big tournaments they flatter to deceive.

All I am saying is it is very competitive and I don't think any team no matter how good they are would win 13 titles in a row, like be realistic about the thing in the 13 years that Cross won the Armagh title they are bound to have had bad days but none of the teams that they where playing against where good enough to take advantage of this, to be this suggests the rest of the teams hadn't much quality as when Cross had a off day in one of their many Ulster campaigns they where normally beat.

PS. By the way Samba outside of St Galls & Cargin Antrim football is at a far lower level than Armagh.

I was meaning in general, a lot of Derry people constantly go on about how good their championship is. Competitive yes, and probably the most amount of teams who have a genuine chance of winning it. Not the greatest of matches though, and I don't think the quality of teams winning it is as high as, say 10 years ago.
I have no doubt Cross had off days, but the likes of Pearse Ogs, Dromintee and and one are 2 others have tested them to the max over the last few years. As I said, to describe the Armagh championship as nothing more than a training session is disrepectful to the likes of these teams.

I never mentioned Antrim football, but I  don't think its fair to say its at a far lower level than Armagh. Depends what you are talking about. Our club champions beat their club champions. Our county team got to an Ulster final and should have beaten the eventual All-Ireland champions, if they'd had a bit more confidence. If you are meaning strength of the Division 1 league, then I'd say we are a bit behind.

This would be fair to say if you were talking purely in terms of footballing ability, but I don't think many outside Armagh realise the psychological stranglehold Cross had on everyone. Of course they had off days when they should've been beaten, but other clubs shat themselves on one or two occasions and threw away the chance to topple them. Clubs outside the county didn't quite have the same mental block. Ogs win this year was massive, the fear factor is severely diminished.

Nail on head.........and just because a championship is competitive doesn't mean it's good, Derry people would sicken your hole about their club football. I also reckon the standard is dropping in Derry with an exceptional Ballinderry team appearing to be past their peak, Bellaghy and Lavey going through a dip, a Derry man said to me recently that it was a worrying sign when Loup won the title.  ;)

I agree with you here, alot off he games in the Derry Championship are awful to watch even between the so called stronger teams, the reason I think Derry teams do well in Ulster is because when they win the Derry Championship they are full of confidence and rightly or wrongly they feel they have won the hardest ( not nessacerly best ) club championship in ulster and they fear no one in the competition.

Fair point about the confidence matter. With all due respect, I think thats one of the main reasons Loup have got to the final, they have got on a bit of a roll and its carried them. Fair play to them.
Na you'd be right about Antrim, after those 2 teams there isn't a whole lot more. Perhaps in the next few years a new force will come through. Creggan fancy themselves and are going very wel at underage level. Not great at senior currently though.
Ah right. Again, probably fairly accurate.

 I will pose this question then lads. Take the top 6  teams from Armagh Derry and Tyrone and put them into a league format with two in each league. Who would come out on top. The quality of Derry and Tyrone championships are undoubtedly of a highier standard than that in Armagh imo. With the exception of Cross and now the Og's (current champs) the other four teams would struggle to compete with Ballinderry, Bellagahy, Errigal, carrickmore, Ardboe,  Dromore to name a few. These teams would have all have the potential to beat cross and certainly the og's who in my eyes are still second best in Armagh despite winning this years championship. Everyone hear is condeming the Derry championship saying because it is competitive then this doesn't neccessarily make it good. Then what does constitute a good championship??? If teams like Ballinderry and Bellaghy are not nailed on favs to win championships every year then the club championship has to be of decent standard.

Afs you are 100% when you talk about the mental issue within Armagh with respect to Cross, but yoda's point about teams not being good enough to take them on bad days is equally valid. There is no way the Cross would have won 13 championships in a row in Tyrone or Derry, i would even extend this to Monaghan as the monaghan champions always gave cross a decent game in Ulster. Acknowledging this is the case isn't taking away from Cross as they are a class act and it isn't being disrespectful to other clubs in armagh is is an observation that is based on many games over 13 years and one which i would agree with.

of course cross would have won almost all the derry titles in the past 13 years, as the rest of the derry teams would have been too busy fallin out with each other, thats why they cant put it together at county level too much baggage brought forward from club hates. LAVEY now there a mad bunch we haven't seen for some time as the man says u would have to back on Tuesday to get ur clothes from after the sunday match nutttts. Master Yoda u must be one of them ;D ;D have to agree that the tyrone and derry leagues and cship are more competitive than armagh u only had cross with pearse ogs and dromintee the only clubs regularily gettin any way close to them.

Win typical clans sour grapes how can u say that the ogs are second in armagh when they won the championship fair and square and competed with cross on all occassions this year. Even the cross boys acknowledged that the ogs are the best team this year. Also would have to agree that the other counties tyrone and derry are competively stronger. When will the clans be able to climb into the top tier in armagh to help improve the standard?? I think Dromintee will compete next year with ogs and cross. ???

As I said, Derry does have the strongest "strength in depth" as it were as regards club teams, and the most capable of winning it. But I do feel the standard has gone back in the last couple of years. As for Tyrone, again a competitive championship. However, there lack of success at Ulster level counts against them. It just depends what is meant by what is the "best championship."

There is no way the Cross would have won 13 championships in a row in Tyrone or Derry, i would even extend this to Monaghan as the monaghan champions always gave cross a decent game in Ulster. Acknowledging this is the case isn't taking away from Cross as they are a class act and it isn't being disrespectful to other clubs in armagh is is an observation that is based on many games over 13 years and one which i would agree with.

Think you might be overstating the quality of some of Tyrone's top teams. No doubt their championship has great strenght in depth, maybe even greater than Derry, but the record of Tyrone clubs in Ulster suggests that their top teams are not much of an improvement on many other counties.

Win typical clans sour grapes how can u say that the ogs are second in armagh when they won the championship fair and square and competed with cross on all occassions this year. Even the cross boys acknowledged that the ogs are the best team this year. Also would have to agree that the other counties tyrone and derry are competively stronger. When will the clans be able to climb into the top tier in armagh to help improve the standard?? I think Dromintee will compete next year with ogs and cross. ???
How is he being sour he he just gave his opinion. Most people would agree that Cross are still the best team, Ogs ran them close twice in the league and most importantly beat them in the sfc final (which might i add is probably the best thing to ever happen to club football in a long while).   agree with you that dromintee will get their fingers out and challenge. as for your question regarding clans, still a team in transition, still off the pace but the signs are good.

Like most statistics Estimator, they are skewed, in this instance with Cross's dominance in Armagh, you could say that proves your point, but I honestly feel that Dromintee at their height would've competed very strongly in Ulster if they had got over Cross in Armagh (see AFS's point about pyschological barriers with Cross) and the Ogs are capable of competing with Ulster's best at the minute (could well give St Gall's their best match in Ulster this year).
Yes, Derry club football is strong but not as strong as Derry people think it is, their champions had just as many problems with Cross as the forementioned clubs in Armagh had through the last decade with only Bellaghy beating them through that time.

IMO the Cross are still a better team than the ogs even though the og's are deservedly Armagh champions this year. I can say this because it is a well known fact that sometimes the best team is beaten on the day for a variety of different reasons ( This is nothing to do with Clan Na Gael or sour grapes as i was glad to see the og's win for the greater good of Armagh football) how you came to that conclusion i don't know. If the og' were to meet the Cross in the first round next year i would fancy the cross again not because i am from the clans, nor is it sour grapes but it is because i think Cross are a better side. It happens regularly in all sports were an underdog will snatch a late winner . Even though the team they are playing is a better team they have still been beaten. I think were you are picking me up wrong is that you think because i am from another Armagh club you feel i don't think the og's deserved to win the county championship. The O'g's thoroughly deserved the championship win. Maybe this is why you feel the need to bring my club into a debate which has simply nothing to do with them.

settle my old friend u just tickle my soft spot at times. but the underdog didnt snatch a late winner but should have against st. galls. at least their manager gave the ogs due credit that we wernt far away and a good side. ah well see u later have to get back to shining the old cup ;)

Cross!!!

Antrim football will find last year hard to replicate, considering the draw and the unknown of the Qualifiers.

as for Ulster club, Naomh Gall have reached 6 finals and the Johnnies have reached 3, between us we have only won 3, thats not bad considering the quality of football (untill lately) was poor since the 50's golden years.

if we win on th 29th it will bound to hamper Bradley's early plans

I genuinely want to see them winning because given the way things have been in Antrim over the years the success does not reflect the quality that is in the county.  With more success this will breed better teams and raise the level.  Realistically with a strong club scene and a driven manager over the county team there can be county success.

This has probley been covered 100 times but I'll ask it anyway.
Why do Tyrone teams do so bad in the Ulster Club?
I been at a few of their Club Championship matches this year including the final and have been very impressed with the quailty, after the County final I thought Dromore would have been a very good bet for Ulster, but year in year out they fall flat on their faces in Ulster.

I know where your coming from Milltown but I disagree about Carrickmore, although always there or there abouts in Tyrone because they are a tough no nonsense team who gives it 100% all the time i feel they haven't had the quality to be a serious threat in Ulster whereas Dromore I think have quality all over the pitch and I was very surprised they didn't give Ulster a serious run this year.

Thought it was between them and yourselves at the start of Ulster.

We keep hearing how good Tyrone teams are but based on the ulster championship over the last number of years the Tyrone championship is not near as tough as the Derry championship.  Just because it is competitive doesn't make it of a great standard, just that the teams in it are of a fairly  equal standard.  I could argue that the down junior championship is competitive and some of the games are good to watch but it doesn't necessarily follow that the standard is that high (relatively speaking).

FIVE of the last 9 ulster senior club finals(including this year) have seen either loup or ballinderry been involved and also about 6 or 7 ulster minor club finals in the last 15 years between them,

to me that is nothing short of an outstanding achievement regardless of outcomes giving the fact that these 2 clubs are neighbouring parishes with the 2 club grounds about a mile apart and also the extremely small catchment area that each club has, then take into account the amount of clubs ther is in ulster,

St Galls have been there or thereabouts for the last six years, and unlike Cross, Ballinderry or Loup they are a dual club and come from a county with a poor enough record in club championship prior to St Galls emergence. By the way over the last 30 years how many Ulster club titles have gone to Donegal Cavan or Monaghan. I think one or two went to Castleblaney but outside of that I dont remember many. Has anyone from Down won it since the Paddy O Rourke Burren team?

Since 1979 Monaghan clubs have won the Ulster club 5 times, Scotstown winning 3 and Blayney 2. Scotstown won it in '78 aswell. But the last win was Blayney in '91, since then the record of Monaghan clubs in Ulster is very poor. We're the last club to get to the final but that's 15 years ago now

Donegal's last Ulster club win was in 1975, while a Cavan club has never won it.

No Down team since the late 80s.  Burren where like the Cross of the 80s.  Downpatrick, Burren and Mayobridge have made the final since then but no winners.

Not hard to do when they transfer in any promising underage talent in Belfast.



Its one of the things that is ruining the Antrim county setup. Good youth players transferring at underage level to the big club to try and win trophies, then spending the following year or 2 picking splinters out of their backside benches when they need to be playing flat out... then a year or two after they give up.




If I was in charge in Antrim, my very first change would be the complete ban of underage transfers within the Belfast area (i.e. from one Belfast club to another).

A dual club that pays only lip service to hurling, reference U-21 Semi a few weeks back when they didn't field because the footballers were playing the next day. We played St Galls in a hurling championship match a couple of years ago and St Galls struggled to get a team, at home, because the footballers were playing Ballinderry in a friendly that day.................

Minder in the years that i've played senior hurling (20) we've won more games against you!! we also managed to compete in more minor finals and under 21 finals. i'd say our standing in hurling is the same

Ok ill-informed I'll help you out.

Belfast does not have Parish boundaries most cities don’t. We’ve two players that play for us that didn’t play as juveniles. Ronan move to the club 5/6 years ago as he worked in Belfast. Fermanagh is 2+ hours away 4 return. You of course would travel and play for your local club

All the clubs in Belfast have players from outside. This is not uncommon in most major towns and cities throughout Ireland. Better still you’d expect players to travel home from London and play for their local team?

As for the ban on players not being able to transfer from clubs in Antrim at juvenile level, it is in place, so again you’re full of it

I know of many ex Galls players who have moved from the area and have their own kids playing for local clubs. My own lad played for St Enda’s. Local club to him.

We also have three senior teams so that we don’t have kids picking splinters from their backsides we also have two senior hurling clubs (all county) to facilitate all comers. You’re probably from a single code club which in itself is killing Gaa traditions.

I await your response

OK, if you are going to make allegations against my club, back them up with facts.

Brian McGuckin got married and built a house on his family land in Ballinderry.  He duly tansferred to the Shamrocks.  His family are all Ballinderry people, his Dad moved to Tyrone when he got married.  Hardly an outsider, but I'll give you that.

Your second comment about taking cubs from nighbouring clubs is the one I will take issue with.  Our neighbouring clubs are Loup, Ardboe, Moortown, Ogra Colmcille, Moneymore.  Name one underage player in the last 20 years who we have taken from any of these clubs.

You see this is one of the things that annoys me with the mindset of some people in the GAA. The GAA is all about tradition and pride in your own club. Families have been associated with club right throughout Ireland from the formation of the club and these families and still existant today. Now i can understand a lad that moves to a new city or a town that is too far away from his own club. The lad wants to play Gaelic games of course he should be able to play anywhere he wants. But this is not the same for a child whose parents decide to move 15 minutes down the road, suddenly a transfer request is put in an accepted on the grounds of relocation. Personally i could never imagine playing for another club i don't think i would have the same levels of pride that i have when i put my own clubs jersey on. I would also feel like an outsider at another club because the only thing i share in common with the new club would be the games. I couldn't sit down with them and say do you remember at u-10 level we won such and such a cup and we used to go to the local shop and get a bun and drink. These things may seem small to some but are crucial if we are to sustain the GAA as it has been. It is well documented that some of the bigger clubs in Dublin have big time exploited transfer rules bringing in new players from other counties in an attempt to buy success. This is wrong and shouldn't be allowed to happen. These clubs should start soccer clubs as this is the kind of behaviour i would expect from local pub teams on a Saturday afternoon.

i dont like reacting to clowns but i have bought the bait,

 johnny mc bride is originally 4m drummulan..he came to the loup at 7 r 8 years of age with his cousin..he never played gaelic before this,, johnny then went on to captain the club to "A" grade success at u12, u14, u16, minor and senior levels including provinicial success at u-15, minor and senior level..

we have one other player who lives outside the parish boundaries..brian doyle..he was brought up in our parish and moved about half a mile outsde the radius when he was young..brian went to st patricks primary school loup along with his brothers and cousins nd played for loup at all youth levels..

both two die hard loup men like all of us..i dont think the likes of st galls and other clubs realise how small our parishes are..our club has 96 official members..

in fairness ballinderry dont poach players either,,so any1 who claims that either of us do are complete fools

winsamsoon. go back to your village team and enjoy the craic. i play/manage/volunteer for a club that has all the vaules asscoiated with the Gaa ethos. we Play Ladies Football Hurling Football and Handball we also have a thriving Scor. All this in one West Belfast club.

i answered your quote that clubs ban transfers. they do already. you've also said that you don't expect players to travel long distances when they move. so i'm confused with your complaint. is it Dublin clubs ya hate or just anyone but youselves

the players i'm talking about who moved have moved to different towns. By moving to parish clubs they are becoming part of that clubs fabric.

for 9 out 10 players they have those memories of the bun and drink. can't honestly think that putting on another top from a club would be for me. but people do and they are as much a GAA person than you
Title: Re: Ulster Senior Football Club Championship 2009
Post by: winsamsoon on November 22, 2009, 10:34:28 PM
Firstly Milltown i don't come from a village i am from lurgan and there are at least 6 clubs within a 3 or 4 mile radius. The majority of the clubs are made up of families that have always been associated with these clubs. I think this is proper and wouldn't advocate anything else.

Secondly i never once mention St Gall's i was speaking in general terms, only citing the Dublin clubs because they have probably exploited it the most. I wouldn't be well enough informed on the Loup or any other Derry club to cast aspersions so i wouldn't dream of doing it.

Thirdly i don't recall entering a quote stating to ban transfers, if you read again you will find you are combining two arguments into one.

Fourthly i never said that people who make these transfers are any less GAA people than me because to me the guy that washes the skips is as important as the lad who wins three All Stars. It is an organisation for the people to keep tradition and culture at the forefront of our lives and it does so successfully.

When i see bigger clubs with a few pounds behind them transferring in players from all across the country then IMO this threatens the key issue of loyalty and culture throughout the club. For example since i have already been accused of taking issue with St Gall's i may aswell play the double Jeopardy card. If the two Gallagher lads who were entitled to play for anyone as they have relocated to Belfast (presuming this is the reason behind it). Why is is that they choose the most successful team in the Belfast area. I am sure they could have went to some of the other clubs around the area. So it could be said then from someone outside of the Belfast area(not a village ) that they only choose St Gall's because they were in search of glory and not that they just wanted to play Gaelic. I would nearly say that there are handier clubs than St Gall's for them lads but i may be wrong

as a club we don't have any money, skint like the other clubs outside of Dublin. any money raised is done by the players and members.

why did two players join St Galls? ask them. Ronan Gallagher couldn't make our senior team until Paddy Murray retired, and Rory has been subbed most games this year. no one is assured a place on the team.

OK your relocated to Dublin. your a decent footballer/hurler. what club would you prefer to join?

Players all over have moved from clubs for various reasons, St Thomonds College won the All Ireland club title beating St Johns Belfast, they had players from all over Ireland playing for them (so did St Johns :o) it will continue to happen. we have two players, big deal.

so as a club you don't have any outsiders, as players or managers?

The point that i am getting at is that these players are making the game a farce. I noticed the way you dodged the question when i asked you why did they join St Gall's. You didn't know the answer but you could probably defend every other point. I will tell you the answer it is because they are the most successful team in the area. So it wasn't just because they wanted to play Gaelic it was because they wanted glory. The ordinary clubman on the other hand will knock his pan in year in and year out for the love of his club and the hope of winning an odd league or intermediate championship and there lies the difference. If you asked an ordinary club member to move to St Gall's then they would say no i am happy with what i have at my own club because therein lie the traditions and people that they have grown up with. Certain players like Mc Geeney and Mc Nulty's (to come away from Antrim examples ) are taking the game away from this. They have a duty to play for their own club and not to go elsewhere simply because the glory and in some cases the pay is good. It is not what our game is about.


With regardes to Wanderer apart from a St Johns player there have been few others that have came to my club from any other . The player is question wasn't paid or offered special deals. He moved to Lurgan with his family. It was his decision to join Clan Na Galel but what probably swayed his decision was the fact that we are the most successful team in that area and this is wrong. So even though it happens at many clubs, i cannot do anything about this but it doesn't make it right whether it be my club or any other. Just on the subject a couple of years back we had a player that moved to Donegal  with his family that lad traveled up to Lurgan and back twice a week for ttraining , sometimes more and a game at the weekend. He could have played for any other club in Donegal but he knew where his heart was. To me it is players like this that hold the true essence and spirirt of the game and not the lad who goes where the glory is. It will soon be like soccer if this persists along with the pay for play deals.

what about st brigid's, there's bound to be a few backhanders went on to get them to where they are now

Don't think there are any back handers involved with any clubs now. More of a north Armagh thing I always thought.

In Belfast, outsiders will be attracted to Belfast clubs for a number of reasons:

1. How their ability matches the club's ability. Whereas St. John's (in the distant past) and St.Paul's (in the more recent past) would have had quite a few higher profile players, it is now St. Gall's turn. Likewise clubs like Rossa, Lamh Dhearg and St Agnes, who are at various lower stages of the food chain will still get their share of smaller fish. Not that I'm calling big Ronan fat.

2. Friends  / work mates already involved with a particular club.

3. Desire to play at a higher level. This is particularly true of the likes of the Drake brothers, McCrossan etc. who transferred from junior clubs to a senior club.

4. But definitely not, and I'm being serious here, financial inducements.

Luckily milltown row's hurlers are above reproach here. Aren't they? They even turned down a former Clare panellist who offered his services, although something about Eire Og is nagging away at me.

A John Kane, son of Val and nephew of DJ. May have played for Ballyholland or Shamrocks and was last seen managing Kilclief. Was living about Bangor / Holywood when he was registered for Naomh Gall. The tenuous connection appears to have been the Ulster Colleges' Council.

over the years there have been players who came to the club to play hurling also, that club didn't hurl (which is fair enough) I've never denied that. that lad played in an All Ireland Club football final, some feat for a lad who only wanted to hurl.

Who's the McCrossan you refer to Sam? I'd be familiar with some of the others but not him.

There is most definitely no money involved here by the way.

St Brigid's have many more south belfast players than people give them credit for. Take an example - they currently have two county panelists and both played through the ranks. A lot of their team came through their ranks. You have to remember that they are one of few clubs in south belfast and with it being "affluent" people are going to move there for employment purposes and want to play football.

This makes them no worse than small country clubs. I'm from a small country club and we have had our ringers over the years. We've not had a massive amount however we've not turned anyone away either - particularly the ones who can play...

Starting to get excited about this game now.

Some very intriguing issues nagging at me already.

Will Naomh Gall complete the Oak Leaf hat trick, having previously seen off Bellaghy and Glenuillin or will An Lub make it a Milltown double?

During the game, how many times will the An Lub's (yes I have a stutter too) substitutes run into the St. Gall's manager whilst conducting their warm up?

Will either manager throw screed at the crowd?

Will the best referee ever Pat McEnaney be fooled, once more (like he was with wee Peter in 2001), by the skullduggery of Littlebridge's finest, Johnny McBride?

Why do the peelers have a speed trap in the 40 zone just past the Newry 6 sign, where (as you are going down hill) it is a physical impossibility to travel at 40mph or less?

What does An Lub mean? I know it means the Loup, but what is a Loup?

great game to look forward to, Loup are great at grinding out results and can be cute when it comes 'making scores'

last day out against Loup we failed to play the type of game that took us to the final in 2003. and it became a struggle, was pretty much an ugly game.

Brennan is no mug either, and may have blockers in place to stop our running game, with some winding up for the usual tagets (though they have not reacted this year) they can play good football but their downfall has to be Benny tipping them today in the Irish News

i'm going for a low a low scoring game- 0-10 to 0-9

Post by: ONeill on November 25, 2009, 10:45:15 PM
I was confident of a comfortable St Gall's victory a week ago, now, with the country half flooded, I'm beginning to waver a bit. Derry sides have a history of revelling in dirty wet conditions as is their daily lifestyle even when the sun is high in the sky. Ballinderry's most recent All-Ireland will live long in the memory. Pigs in shite. They've been through a couple of dogged affairs whilst the Milltown men waltzed their way through Antrim and were only briefly tested against Cavan Gaels.

Gall's' trump card is their options in attack. The three McGourtys can wreak havoc if on form. Kevin seems to be coming good the longer the season goes on, CJ is starting to shine and the other one who I can't remember is the most underrated player on the side - playmaker extraordinaire. Odd posture though. Gallagher will be a marked man and can blow hot and cold. I can see Veronica getting some close attention because of his name. That wouldn't go down well in Willie Anderson land.

A draw. 8-8.

The Loup is small hamlet in south derry which is about 4 mile outside of Magherafelt.

I'm told big Darren O'Hare (a bag of sugar under 20 stone in weight) is being given the Maor Uisce bib for Sunday. He's been told to stand beside Brennan and threaten manners if there is any physical interference with the Galls mentors. Worked when Lamh Dhearg gave the bib to big Fitzy.

This Brennan chappy appears to be taking on mythical status. Irish News has him up to championships with six different clubs in three different counties; I'm thinking Lavey, Loup and Slaughtniel in Derry; Carmen in Tyrone and Cargin in Antrim. Who's the other? Or can we expect, by Monday for it to be growing expotentially - 27 titles in eight counties in three different sports.

The danger of a team being as successful as St Galls have been in the past 10 years is that it leaves it very hard for good young players to break onto the team and sooner normally, rather than later you lose them young players to other sports or to the evils of booze, drugs and women ( not necessarily in that order ).

This is to a certain what happened to the brilliant Bellaghy team in the late 90's and early 2000's and to a certain extent has happened Ballinderry over the past 2- 3 years, but again success is not a bad problem to have.

I cannot see St Gall's losing this. The memories of Clones a few years ago are still there. They're some club at the minute.

St Galls by 8 points.

i hope you didn't have money on this...  ;)

Unlucky Loup, you had an excellent season!

Well done to Galls, a serious outift. Seems like they kept up their form from our game, ruthless attacking, that's a couple of serious scores to be putting up in November. Full steam ahead for the All-Ireland now, can't see anyone stopping them if they keep it up.

Nice win in the bookies too, lumped on Galls -3 at 11/8, there was serious money to be had there!  ;D

corofin racked up a fairly handy score too and portlaoise will be hard to work with - still though, i fancy galls to play portlaoise in an attacking football feast on paddy's day.

Awesome peformance by St Galls today, delighted they played to their potential. As said before they've always had the skills but now the majority of the lads are peaking physically and they dont look like they can be stopped.

They tanked Loup who were beaten by a far superior team, both physically and skills wise.

The whole team were great and Niblock in particular won a sight of ball--he was flying and so powerful he couldnt be stopped all day, some change from his performance at the same ground v Cross 2 years ago, he's come on bucketloads since then.

Best bit of the game was when Aidso did as he did in the semi v Clontibret --Aidso hand passed the ball over Aidan McAlynn along the sideline with about 5 mins to go --McAlynn then went to 'do' Aidso as he was left open after he played the ball, but Aidso just quickly tightened himself in and buried McAlynn onto his arse. He then stood over McAlynn and looked down at him, McAlynn got up and hit Aidso a crap punch the stomach--Aidso just laughed at him and shook his head. Good moment

Pretty impressed by St Gall's today.  Have to admit I was surprised by the winning margin.  Thought that Loup would have made a real fight of it.  St Galls went in at half time with a four point cushion.  Despite the cushion I still considered that the game was far from over.  I felt Loup were still in contention courtesy of a John Brennan half time team talk and a slightly favourable wind in the second half.

But Loup came out and scored a solitary point the whole second half.
I know Loup had a spot of bad luck and were very unlucky not to get a goal but there's no doubt that St Gall's were the hungrier and fitter side.

With players of the calibre of Karl Stewart and Sean Burns coming off the bench it is hard not to admire the strength and depth of St Gall's. 

How many other Antrim club players do you think would get on the St Gall's team ?

I'd have 6 non-St Gall's players on my Antrim club select team:

1. P Graham
2. C Brady
3. A McClean
4. K O'Boyle
5. T Scullion
6. J Crozier
7. S Kelly
8. M McCann (Capt)
9. A Gallagher
10. Kieran McGourty
11. Kevin McGourty
12. T McCann
13. CJ McGourty
14. R Gallagher
15. K Niblock

Agreed with the talk about all irelands. Backing up last years championship run and consolidating - if not gaining promotion - should be our aims.

Loughrey would be in the HB line alright. Scullion was good this year but can be a bit of a headless chicken at times too.

Great win by st galls. Rory Gallagher has added something to the forward line they didn't have before and needed. Corofin looked good too though. Far from a foregone conclusion that they'll win the AI. Having Burns and Karl Stewart on the bench is impressive. Good to see Burke playing well too. If he keeps that up maybe he can replace McKeever next year in midfield for Antrim.

 great game don't know why you found this afternoon boring Fox. St Galls showed a serious level of fitness and ability. i thought after 10 minutes Loups main players were done. while McFlynn tried hard, McBride could not keep up to the pace of midfield and was over run. these guys have given Loup decades of service and owe them nothing.

As for the arrogance. didn't see it out there today, very contolled and got on with the job.

major factor i believe was the hurt of being beaten in 2003. does  not take much to get a team motivated to play an Ulster final but that must have been a major thing.

I thought St Galls where outstanding. They are a brilliant club side. They have class from one to 15 and great subs to call on. The two Kellys, McClean and Brady where impressive at the back and are all very clean accomplished defenders. Gallagher and Burke dominated midfield while CJ, Gallagher and Kevin Niblock lead the Loup defence on a merry dance. But the man for me was Kevin McGourty. He was everywhere and competes for everything and works so hard. I think he is an outstanding footballer and has proved this with St Galls and Queens over the years and for Antrim when he lined out. If this man, CJ and Sean Kelly gave the full committment and went back to the county then Antrim could build severly on what they achieved this year.

I think this would be a formidable saffron side. 1. John Finucine 2. Colin Brady 3. Andrew McClean 4. James Loughery 5. Tony Scullion 6. Justin Crozier 7. Sean Kelly 8. Aodhan Gallagher 9. Sean Burke 10. Kevin Niblock 11. Kevin McGourty 12. Tomas McCann 13. CJ McGourty 14. Michael McCann 15. Paddy Cunningham.

No real surprise in the result, but it should be said (without being either patronising or condescending, although it would be funny if I was being either or both) that Loup reaching the Ulster final was a greater achievement than St. Gall's winning it. St. Gall's were superior in almost every position with really only nos. 6 and 15 mounting any sort of resistance for Loup.

While I would question the involvement of both Fermanagh Gallaghers. I have to say it was a treat to watch the Rory boy. You had to have sympathy with the Loup full back, the way both teams were lining out it meant both full back lines could get destroyed - even McClean who is an infintely better footballer than O'Kane struggled early on against Young who is an infintely weaker player than Gallagher.

Nine different scorers shows the depth of talent in the St Gall's team and the fact that Loup didn't get a single point from play is indicative of their defensive strengths. the younger Kelly is an improvement over Kennedy, although the keeper looked dodgy under the high ball.

The sickness bug in the St Gall's camp was genuine (one of their starting fifteen was off work from our place with the diarrhoea for a couple of days at the tail end of the week) - it may have affected them a bit, but they were always going to be far too strong.

On a sort of personal note, it was good to see fourteen of our past (and current) pupils involved in the two games in Newry yesterday.

Other general observations.

The traffic in Newry was surprisingly easy to negotiate. Thanks 5 Sams.
Pairc Esler was a decent venue.
The programme was crap - a whole page on the three referees, yet all we know about the players is their names. Hate that crap.
Yesterday was cold, although both teams showed admirable toughness in tight fitting short sleeved shirts.
Amhran na bhFiann gets slower every time I hear it.
Loup's amateur psychology was fairly lame (not coming out at the correct time, ensuring that St. Gall's were on the pitch to hear the 'massive' lough shore roar).
Brennan's not wise.
Aodhan Gallagher was a deserving man of the match, although reasonable cases could have been made for about eight of them.
There is some number of gabshites go to these games. We had the misfortune to be sitting in front of a Loup boyo who slated his team and management from the first whistle to the last.
Pat McEnaney wasn't fooled a second time by Johnny McBride.
Pat McEnaney is turning / has long since turned into a sort of refereeing parody. A bit like an Alan Partridge / David Brent style figure.

St. Gall's won't be far away, but there are a couple of areas in which they could still improve.

McEnaney is getting worse the more I see him. I thought he was poor yesterday getting a lot of very basic decisions wrong. He wrongly called McBride for pulling his man in by the arm, he must have been reading the papers. How he didnt give St Galls a penalty is a mystery.

Hopefully St Galls can go all the way, would be good for Antrim and Fermanagh.

Disappointing end to the season for the neutral -  Loup just didn't turn up. I thought that we'd have seen a more aggressive approach from the Loup -

But hats off to St Galls who were simply devestating.


Having survived a scare in Cavan and a wee bit of a scare in Casement against Pearse Ogs, they went on to almost humiliate both Clontibret and Loup. I haven't seen many victories as facile as this one was so you'd have to reasonably conclude that this Galls team are well equipped to possibly go the whole road.


Well done to them. Looking forward to their semi final - who do they play ?

A great result for St Gall's but as someone pointed out Autumn form does not always translate to winning the AI.  I think it really is there for them this year.  The team seems well balanced with a great spread of quality footballers.  The likes of CJ are starting to mature as players to compliment their obvious talent.  I have seen what is left and there is nothing that would sacre me from a St gall's perspective. 

The one concern I would have for them is that they get a little caught up in the whole thing and lose their focus.  They still need to play football.  The only thing is they are playing good fottball and will be very hard to beat.

He then stood over McAlynn and looked down at him, McAlynn got up and hit Aidso a crap punch the stomach--Aidso just laughed at him and shook his head. Good moment

Either that or the moment Karl came on. His man started jabbing him in the back as soon as Karl ran over to him. Ginge jumped round and made as if he was going to dig him and your man shit a brick. Really great performance by St. Gall's, although I was disappointed to see them starting to mess around towards he end. As someone said earlier, Niblock was absolutely awesome, even though defenders tried to wipe him our on several occasions. Saw him after the match and he had a black eye the size of an apple. Although Aidso won MOTM, I think Sean Burke should get a lot of praise as well- best performance I've seen from him at senior.

Nothing less than the All-Ireland will do now. I remember being in the club the night of the Salthill match and Gribbies was crying into a pint and wondering how on earth he'd ever get to play in Croke Park again. Well, they're just one game away from it now. Shows the belief is finally there in the squad that they deserve to be ranked up with the best teams in the country.

Will the bookies have them favourites?

I would be an avid follower of Ulster club football over the past 20 years or so. This was the reason why i asked the question, I couldn't remember the last time a Derry team took a beating like that. Cross have never stuffed Bellaghy. If my wee brown book is correct, Bellaghy and Cross have played 4 times with each winning two games. Significantly Cross defeated bellaghy in 2 finals, one after a replay in 98 I believe, and the other in 96 I think by 2 points. I honestly cannot think of any derry club team taking abeating like that in the Ulster Club. Anyone?

Enniskillen beat Bellaghy  12 points to 6 points in 2001 with bellaghy getting two very late points.
Not sure of the year though.  think it was 01

I think I remember that as well. Did Bellaghy not get a few red cards also, ending the game as something resembling a disorganised rabble?

Fair play to Loup for keeping their discipline despite getting a bit of a tanking.

I think that was 99. Aye, we were very undisciplined that day and a few of our boys lost the run of themselves.

Pat McEnaney's call on Johnny McBride was the bet bit of refereeing i've seen in a while --granted it did come after Brolly had stated that McBride was the only man superior to him in grabbing a man's arm in and dragging him down to get a free--this is exactly what McBride did--he grabbed Gribbies arm in and dragged him down --but the ejit did it clean in front of McEnaney.

The difference in McBride and Gallagher, Kelly, Burke etc is clear, if any of those Galls boys were in a tight spot they would dig their fresh, fit legs in and drive out of that spot while McBride just looks to grab hold of the nearest opponent and 'buy' a free, boring spectators in the process "oh, isnt McBride great, buying frees and dragging his team to one point victories" no he's not, he's boring. What neutral spectator wants to watch that sort of slow, boring, win at all costs shite (unless it was Antrim winning an All Ireland that boring way, i'd take that!). Imagine paying a tenner in to watch McBride slow games down and put you to sleep. McBride didnt try that trick again and it clearly curtailed his game as he overcarried a number of times when surrounded by blue shirts, he tried to play honest football rather than doing his usual and as a result wasnt good enough and overcarried. McBride is a bully,  the photo of him dropping his knees on the back of a Derrygonnelly man thats been in the paper hows that. After Gallagher burried McAlynn, McBride came over pointing at Gallagher, but he wouldnt go near him as he was punctured and out of shape (he's just all talk and dirty slaps and tricks) and Gallagher would have went through him for a shortcut. I'm delighted this type of footballer didnt win. St Galls to a man are hard but fair. God help Fermanagh if McBride is on board to provide his boring, slow the game down, put spectators to sleep, knowledge
 

St Galls were awesome to watch, playing like a 7 a side team, up and down the pitch, playing with a ferousious intensity from start to finish, it was awesome to watch--defending as hard as you'll see and flying forwards --they really are a team and every one of them should at least be on our county panel--great to see a team play to their potential on the big day

Awesome peformance by St Galls today, delighted they played to their potential. As said before they've always had the skills but now the majority of the lads are peaking physically and they dont look like they can be stopped.

They tanked Loup who were beaten by a far superior team, both physically and skills wise.

The whole team were great and Niblock in particular won a sight of ball--he was flying and so powerful he couldnt be stopped all day, some change from his performance at the same ground v Cross 2 years ago, he's come on bucketloads since then.

Best bit of the game was when Aidso did as he did in the semi v Clontibret --Aidso hand passed the ball over Aidan McAlynn along the sideline with about 5 mins to go --McAlynn then went to 'do' Aidso as he was left open after he played the ball, but Aidso just quickly tightened himself in and buried McAlynn onto his arse. He then stood over McAlynn and looked down at him, McAlynn got up and hit Aidso a crap punch the stomach--Aidso just laughed at him and shook his head. Good moment

Either that or the moment Karl came on. His man started jabbing him in the back as soon as Karl ran over to him. Ginge jumped round and made as if he was going to dig him and your man shit a brick. Really great performance by St. Gall's, although I was disappointed to see them starting to mess around towards he end. As someone said earlier, Niblock was absolutely awesome, even though defenders tried to wipe him our on several occasions. Saw him after the match and he had a black eye the size of an apple. Although Aidso won MOTM, I think Sean Burke should get a lot of praise as well- best performance I've seen from him at senior.

Nothing less than the All-Ireland will do now. I remember being in the club the night of the Salthill match and Gribbies was crying into a pint and wondering how on earth he'd ever get to play in Croke Park again. Well, they're just one game away from it now. Shows the belief is finally there in the squad that they deserve to be ranked up with the best teams in the country.

Will the bookies have them favourites?

McAlynn was nipping flat out against Kilcoo also and got roasted by a teenager. He is one off those players that needs the top row took out the way he behaves.

I don't know if your a St Galls man or not, sounds like you are, but it is this sort of stuff that makes neutrals hate a team for one thing or another and why St Galls's arent liked alot. Fair enough they have a good football team, but to come out with a statement like that is a joke. No team has a team of angels. How many of this great St Galls team turned their backs on Antrim when they were in need of them? To come out with a statement like that against Johnny McBride, who has put 20 or so hard years into football and The Loup, is a joke. You wouldn't say it to his face but you can come on here and talk about it. Enjoy your victory and get on with it. God know's what they would be like if they got beat.

Well said. The reason Loup where in the final was because McBride conned Paudie' w**king' Hughes into numerous calls against Kilcoo in the simi. When big Marty McClean was booked all Johnny done was say to Hughes every time Marty went for a ball that he was on a yellow and for something silly that McAneaney wouldn even blow a free for, Hughes sent Marty off costing us victory. If Pat was refereeing our game with Loup they wouldnt have been there yesterday and i think the hammering they got proved they are an ordinary side. Paudie Hughes will never be forgiven in Kilcoo and i agree with all you say about McBride.

A glenullin man i was talking to claimed that galls played with 8 men for a while in last year's all ireland sevens final, he also said that galls were a little bit cynical in their tackling every time the bradley's got the ball.  I'm sure of course that they've now moved on and would never indulge in such tactics again, but last year wasn't that long ago that you'd have forgotten it completely.

Yeah opinions that many neutral gaels who where at the match agreed with. And a fact that McBride talked to the referee and had an influence on getting big marty sent off is fact. I was close enough to see it. All i am saying is that with a better referee things likely would have been different. Look i can take a beating but all any team asks for is consistency in refereeing and on that day we didnt get that as all the media highlighted. We had a great year and we will respect the Loup and always remember the great game we where involved in with them. if it was your club that where on the wrong side off the decisions off Hughes on that day you would be sore.

I'd agree. Hardly a county footballer in the country isn't up to the old trick of pulling the tacklers arm in to get a foul. Cross are dab hands at it. It's harsh to pick on McBride for this. He's not an angel but there is much much worse about and he has given the Loup club some service. The amount he has won in the game would indicate that there is a footballer, and a damn good one, in there too.

Middowngael a lot of refs have a lot of bad games. Unfortunately we've all been on the end of them. It's unfortunate but you just have to accept it and get on with it.

Didn't get the gaelic life this week, however lad I went to game informed me that Brolly's article had something in it about Mc Brirde to the extent of the point being mentioned. I wonder if Pat Mc A read it. Did anyone here read the article? Did Brolly angle it in a certain way?I  Wouldn't be overly pleased if I was Mc Bride, with Brolly highlighting that on the eve of a major final.

Pat McEneaney has been reffing games with Johnnie McBride in them for the guts of 10 years... if he only realised about the arm pulling on the eve of this year's Ulster Final there is something seriously wrong.

Have played against McBride and Brolly both and they are masters of that particular art. Joe apologised to me for it once sayin "sorry about that but I need to substitute the lack of pacce with something". Referees have caught on to it a lot more now so no big deal really.

As for talking about Johnny McBride and players of his "ilk"  he has more honours than probably anyone on that St. Gall's team so I'd wind your neck in on that score. He plays on the edge and goes over it sometimes but make no mistake he is a leader and in his prime he could control the tempo of a club game unlike anyone you've ever seen and he did it plenty of times this year also. Yes the Loup are a limited side and anyone in Derry would tell you that but don't be having a go at a great footballer who has put in massive service to Club and County for the best part of 20 years!!!

Sam,

I should have included you along with the slaphead.

Johnny has won the following, I could have missed one or two.

An Ulster Minor County Champioship, they where beat in the final of the All Ireland the same year.

2 Ulster Minor Clubs

An Ulster U21 win along with two final defeats.

An All Ireland U21 when he was captain of a great team.

An Ulster Senior along with two losers medals, he scored 1-3 in the final against Armagh and was the best footballer on the park.

Two National Leagues and a losers medal, maybe beat in two finals?

Two Derry Senior Championships and an Ulster Club Championship.

What St Galls man has won more than that, dont be including Mickey Mouse hurling competitions either.

Showing a lot of runners-up, surely you should stick to the winners side of things. Havin said that not a bad haul ;) thats 11 winners metals, think some st galls men might have more winners medals maybe not as varied. 8 senior championships out of the last 9 and 2 ulsters for starters dont know about u21 or minor but im sure someone will fill us in.

First of all well done to St Galls on Sunday, sometimes you just come up a better team and there is nothing you can do about it. St Galls where pure class all over the pitch and I hope they go on now to win the All Ireland and I think they will if they can keep their feet on the ground.

I think its totally unfair for people to come on here and give the loup players bad manners about the way the play the game, with the players we have had at our disposal over rhe past 8-9 years we have done in my opinion incredibly well and have punched above our weight with the big boys, what people have to understand is that the Loup are not going to beat the best teams in Derry playing nice open football so they play to contain the other team, make it tight and hang in there to the last 10 when more times than not they have more heart for the fight and finish on the right side of the score. Thats the way we play and we make no apologies for it.

Last of all I would like to say anyone who knows Johnny McBride knows what kind of a man he is and its shows such a lack of class to come here and try to blacken a great gaels name. Johnny McBride is the embodiment of everything that the Loup are and will alway be an absolute legend in the Loup, Fermanagh dont know how lucky they are to be getting such a man.

Some awful crap posted in here. First of all, congratulations to St Galls, excellent performance and on that form they'll be hard to stop. Loup just couldn't compete, but I'm sure they'll be happy enough with their year.

For the personal attacks on Johnny McBride, wise up. The man has been a class footballer for about 15 years for club and county, and as someone says you don't win the honours he has by fluke. I'm sure he isn't too worried about what some loser on her says anyway. As for Kilcoo man, get over it ffs, yous were beat fair and square. I was at the game as a neutral, the ref wasn't the reason you lost. Move on, you are making your club look bad on here.

A true sign of a great sportsmanship is to treat defeat and victory with the same respect.  All teams have idiots who  over the years have spouted off at games and in the pubs and clubs after about such and such.  With the advent of the internet discussion boards these idiots have been let loose on the whole world instead of just their own parish.  Things happen on the field that effect the game positively and negatively and to pick out players and refs as scapegoats is wrong.  There is not one ref that hasn't made a msitake and not one team who hasn't cheated so get off the high horses and enjoy a fine team in St Gall's and hopefully they can bring Andy Merrigan back to Ulster again for the 10th time.

Two Derry Senior Championships and an Ulster Club Championship with Loup.

A McLarnon and an All-Ireland B with a girls' school.

Quite impressive.

Before we get some of the gallsmen in to list their achievements, are you giving any weightings to these medals?

I'll ask a boy in work at lunchtime and we'll see what he has won.

Her'll be light alright, but, as Sunday demonstrated, that is merely an accident of birth and not a reflection on his ability.

Chances are though that he's only an Ulster minor, Ulster and All-Ireland under-21 and a National Football League medal (won by breaking sweat) shy of Mr McBride. The under-21 competition is largely an irrelevance, few counties take it seriously.

He may out do him on all most other fronts though.

Again, neither list will be an indicator of greatness.

This is a pointless debate. I don't even know what Sam is trying to achieve with the "girls school" comment. There s no doubting that both McBride and most of the Galls lads have a lot of honours. Johnny's is a bit more widespread, and includes the coveted All-Ireland, won as captain. But there is no point in comparing the 2.

So the club is more important, yet a St. Gall's man with eight senior county and two Ulsters has a less impressive cv than a Loup man with two and one respectively. Strange.

That's for my Draperstown friend (who started this shite) as you could possibly have guessed had you read his response to my post.

As a matter of interest what counties dont take the U21 competiton seriously.

Off the top of your head, name the last three All-Ireland under 21 winners and the provincial winners in each of those years. I know Down lost to Cork this year, but beyond that I have no idea. And if Down were taking it seriously, if it was a serious competition why was their manager not considered for the senior job.

I would suggest that neither your county nor mine take the under-21s seriously. if they did, they would have different managers for each team.

I suppose I did start it with a throwaway remark but in fairness there was A LOT of crap talked about McBride which I probably shouldn't have risen to.

People have been saying it depends on where you're born but the Loup is a TINY club in comparison to Gall's and I would hesitantly say that their Club Achievements would rank alongside that of Gall's in the grand scheme of things and add together McBrides achievements with the County then I would say he is a more decorated player.

As for the great St. Pat's v Convent debate... well I should probably just forget about that! The future is looking up for St. Mary's though.

Straw clutching argument there. How serious Down take the Under 21 comp is nothing to do with the appointment of the senior job what so ever. The fact he previously was an All Ireland senior winning manager and didn't get the job would dispel that myth. Just because you can't remember the previous winners doesn't mean it is not taken seriously.

the match is over and a new thread should be put up. the Galway champs are no mugs having won the Connacht title two years in a row. while the Mayo champions seemed a poor team it wont go unnoticed that they racked up a good score without some of their main players.

having watched part of the game last night i'd say they are two evenly matched teams and should be a good game.

how the galls lads will do on two fronts is another question. with 8/9 dual players with the fitness and strength, it could be a deciding factor with their game in the hurling, or the dual players may just concentrate on the football? i doubt it though as that would be some achievement to reach two finals at Croke park

Some awful crap posted in here. First of all, congratulations to St Galls, excellent performance and on that form they'll be hard to stop. Loup just couldn't compete, but I'm sure they'll be happy enough with their year.

For the personal attacks on Johnny McBride, wise up. The man has been a class footballer for about 15 years for club and county, and as someone says you don't win the honours he has by fluke. I'm sure he isn't too worried about what some loser on her says anyway. As for Kilcoo man, get over it ffs, yous were beat fair and square. I was at the game as a neutral, the ref wasn't the reason you lost. Move on, you are making your club look bad on here.

I am giving the opinion off Kilcoo people and further afield, We where denied a clear free at the last and lost a man for very little not to mention many other dubious calls. Ive took my beating and wished the Loup all the best for the final. I know if either off the two major decisions ive mentioned where called correctly the result would have been different. Its tough when you loose in a manner like that but i take nothing away from Loup. My gripe is with a Mr Paudie Hughes who is detested even in his own county because he is one off these referees that is out to be the centre off attention. Every local and national paper and Austin OCallaghan on BBC where critical off Hughes over these wrong calls post match including a number off nuetrals and people from the Loup ive spoken to since.

The U21 competition is taken very seriously by counties. The only one of the "big" counties who may, and I say may, take it lightly is Kerry.

My biggest disappointment from an Antrim football perspective over the last few years was the lack of investment in the u21 set-up. They had a team capable of challenging a few years ago and the current crop are nowhere near as good. I would have put that at the feet of Jody Gormley to be honest.

Look at where Cork are now. They've had a lot of success of late in the u21s. There are teams who aren't building on u21 success granted - Mayo, Galway and Down to name but three - however it's been a great building block for a number of teams. Those who take it lightly do so at their peril. The foundations of Tyrones AI success was the u21 team of circa 2000. The successful Armagh team had an ulster u21.

There's only one thing for it... we'll have to call Sepp Blatter and see can they be put into the All club draw :'( :'(!! So much whining... what team has never had a gripe about at least one game where the referee fucked up. It used to wind me up big time when decisions went against us but you soon learn that in other cases you'll get the rub of the green. Paudie refereed the Armagh final and he sent one of our boys off harshly in the last minute after he skipped through three attempts to floor him. I still don't detest him and I'm from Armagh. Give it a f**king rest

In my opinion has more medals of note than any St. Galls player, but I'd ahve to agree, U21 isn't treated all that seriously in many counties, Derry is normally one of those, although on occasion they have a rattle at it.
