Quote from: AllStar15 on February 22, 2024, 09:23:50 AMAlso any word on fixtures? Nearly two weeks out from the proposed first game and we have no confirmed date schedule and no fixture list. Some handling!

Same most years. Does the change at the top, chairman etc impact this or are the people controlling fixtures stay year on year?

Managers dont know at the minute who they can/cannot use player wise. Players cannot plan their lives without a masters fixture list. Surely that is done by now?

I'm nearly sure its the Easter weekend and the football is the 10th of March..

Most hold ups are down to the clubs, they have to agree on things and then rubber stamped

These dates have been known for a few weeks

You should probably know the dates yourself? Easter weekend? Is it saturday or the sunday? Can you make plans with the wife on easter sunday yet? As far as im aware the u18 factor was discussed at the end of January and no decision made. Obviously a fixture headache for them but as far as i can hear almost every club is backing 18 year olds playing senior

Maybe its different nowadays being married and being a player... I just left the house on the morning of the game played it and came back, my wife wouldn't even know where I was going lol

Club came first, Easter was way down on my list

As I've said on here many times, the clubs are generally the ones who hold up the fixtures

Fair enough, release the fixtures week on week and we'll keep every weekend free. No need to book a holiday or a weeekend away...club comes first

So when have the fixtures been released week on week?

It's a pastime sport, you don't get paid, if your wife wants you to go away for the weekend or book a holiday do it. Championship will be end August September time generally

Your Club Sec will give you all the answers



Its a past time sport that people make big sacrifices for. I'd like to book weekends away around my games and play as many as possible! It's not a massive ask

Its not, and I would stress that you phone your club Sec and ask them why its being held up..

The start dates have always been there, its been the new proposals from the clubs that have held things up.

We all have a view on how things can be better organised but we have county set ups which have leagues and championships and back door championships and then all the divisions and different codes and ladies and camogies looking pitches, we have year tournaments (like or May day one and hurling one ) and county championships, then on top of that there was a restructuring of the leagues and ones looking it amended and whatever, not easy and would not have the foggest idea how that would be done, but hell, I can do a podcast and say it should be better organised.. OK, how?

I generally knew when playing, I was out Sunday, games Tuesday training, Wed games Thursday training or southy games and rinse repeat every week, as a dual player that's what ya did

But its better craic to blame the county

Well considering I do 80% of the cooking I'm not sure how that is relevant to club fixtures and when they are starting..

Someone asked and I said the 10th March, and hurling starts Easter weekend but then started talking about his wife and booking weekends away and holidays ffs!

Who do you actually thinks slows down the fixtures coming out?

The topic pops up every year and your club sec's have all this information but to waffle on about booking weekends and holidays with the wife is getting tiresome!

Would ye whist. You have seriously went off on one, hunting for food, womens place in the kitchen

MR2 woman are allowed a wife too and men help out with children etc, This bit I'm not sure about though

Quote from: Sportacus on February 22, 2024, 11:02:36 AMIt's the spoofing that annoys me. A bunch of amateurs and their only hope now is that the UK Government throw the money at it to deliver the Euros, whatever it takes. That may save their skin in the end, but never forget it has been a complete fiasco.

And every chance it will be an underused white elephant. The euros will be gone in a blink, and then what?  Potentially one or two capacity games per year, and as far as concerts, there are plenty of established venues already so there'll be plenty of competition for the big artists to pick from - no guarantee at all of success there either. 

And where will an Antrim U16 final be played?  Will they really go to the cost of opening a 34k seat stadium for a club underage final?
Like who cares? The Euros will pay for it itself. Even if it will be a white elephant (which i don;t think it will), we often see tournaments build stadia and leave them in place for use. Why is this seen as a bad thing? It'll be paid for and got the money back in tax, and then will be used for otehr events

And yes? Hardly would think they'll open up every stand and have 100s of stewards. But absolutely. Isn't this the point, that finals even underage ones are played at the main county ground? Jeez, this is mad stuff you're getting annoyed at. It hardly costs millions to open a gate and one stand for a club match

When Casement was open it was used all the time for Antrim club games with a few 100 people there.

Our pitch was being done up must have been 91 and we played all our club games in football there, made my senior club football debut there maybe 30 in attendance ;D . Not sure why our hurlers didn't, could have been we were div 2 at the time

Man United are unstoppable right now, 5 wins in a row. Champions League will be back at Falling down Trafford next season no doubt about it.

Have you seen this guy? He couldn't ride his own missus lol

Quote from: Cunny Funt on February 21, 2024, 10:09:31 PMNot much luck with injuries this season and the main reason for such a struggle all season has been the injuries especially with the amount of defenders out. It will be uphill challenge now for top 4/5 without Shaw and Martinez for extended period of time
Ah stop, 5 wins in a row, probably makes them the most in form team in the league. The most expensive squad ever assembled in the history of the game, top 4 is in their sights, and is theirs to lose at this stage.

You need to stay off the glue lad, simple math will tell you Utd will have the same league finish as Liverpool last season.. Utd have Liverpool Arsenal and City to play.. In fact I doubt very much they will get top 6

Quote from: Aaron Boone on February 22, 2024, 01:46:08 AMTo assuage Unionist concerns, should there be a mention of the two Corporals?

Were they actually killed in Casement? I know they were dragged in but I assumed they were killed on the waste ground at the front of the PD, not sure tbh

I'd say it was important, it's momentum, it's also great to blood so many young players.

Think league will be settled when they play City. City bizarrely favourites, not by much, but 13/8 Liverpool in a two horse race (Arsenal will fall away) is a decent bet

Will next year's manager say the things Klopp did at half time?

Quote from: Armamike on February 21, 2024, 10:59:04 PMImpressive, uplifting performance with so many players out. 

Luton away from home, relegation favourites against the best team in the Premier league? Impressive or standard?

Think Klopp was over celebrating at the end there!

Quote from: J70 on February 21, 2024, 06:42:31 PMDown 11 first team players tonight. Weak bench if things are not going well against Luton.

Substitutes: Adrian, Konate, Tsimikas, Robertson, Clark, Gordon, McConnell, Dans, Nyoni.



I thought Konate and Robertson would be decent first team players?

If ya can't beat them at home with that team ya may give up

Clones ran the Ulster final no matter how bad things got in the north. It always happened even during the worst years.


That's great information. I'm so glad I got the chance to read that!

Holy f**k!
