Will Leeds be capable of beating Brentford away on Sunday? If not Burnley, Everton will stay up regardless of their results.

Stevie Gerrard resting Coutinho and Ings tonight so they can be fresh and ready to lose the league title for their former club Liverpool on Sunday.

fixed that for you

Thought the last 2 episodes this week were brilliant - Havenít enjoyed all of this season but the episode last night tapped into your emotion of what things were like and people
Donít want that anymore never mind when they voted for the GFA, but arseholes working to destabilise that agreement would anger you.. Loved Granda Joes speech about it being a ghost story youíll tell weans.

Are Ballykinlar fielding mens team this year?

I remember they were in the East Down Reserve at one stage.

I think County Board also tried to help out with coaching.

Nope not fielding.. Last time they fielded think was in 2018 as far as I can remember

One of the aristocrats of Down club football cannot field a seconds team for the last two weeks. How can Bryansford be struggling for numbers?
Aristocrats?Where do you get all these terms and ideas from?Regional reserve leagues?

Yes with a play off of the winners and runners up to win all county league. If you look at the DNF for the weekend, Bryansford not traveling to Carryduff, Saval not going to Loughinisland and Annaclone not traveling to Downpatrick. Less travel for reserve players means a better chance the fixture will be played.

There was a foreign cup final that day - I dare say those clubs are full of supporters of the team in red, reason for DNFs I'd wager

Accountability and transparency are huge factors.
Without them, there is no integrity and people lose confidence and have no faith in decision-makers and the structures they apparently uphold.
When you hear about task forces, steering committees, focus groups, think tanks etc it pretty much smells of bullshit, smoke and mirrors. And for a long time people in the county have been blinded by the bullshit and swallowed it whole.

A brush should be taken to that county board and the unelected figures in the background that use them as puppets roaded.
Jobs for the boys.
   Have a friend who's son is on the Down U16 Dev Squad and a nephew who is on the Tyrone U16 one.The Down squad are scheduled to meet 6 times from the start of the year up to the end of August.Tyrone have met at least twice every three weeks but it's mostly weekly around this time of the year.Manager of the Down squad is Benny Coulter.

What is your point,  a quick glance on social media would see that Down u15 and u16s have been playing plenty of matches? What would be the point of taking kids halfway across the county to train when they are already getting coaching 2-3 times a week in their clubs with a match on a Monday night!
BTW that is a gripe of mine, carrying 50 odd lads on a development squad !!

Apparently Mooney is back in the Down camp.
   So TruthHurts,Tyrone have got it wrong all these years.
We're doing it correctly and getting exactly what for this good practice?

I do not get what you are getting at?
  I think what he is getting at is that the Down method of running their Dev squads is not yielding results( U16's only meeting 6 out of 33-35 possible weeks---ridiculous if true) whereas Tyrone's method over the years of putting real work into their Dev squads has and probably will continue to reap rewards.That's twice today our paid employees that been brought into the various conversations on the ills of Down football.Both probably paid Managers in other Clubs.

They meet every weekend, this is enough. They develop in their schools and clubs more.

Isn't this the same fella who said u11s should be training and having matches 3 times a week? You're some BSr Truth

You know folks, sometimes seasons just fall apart.

Usually the best thing everyone can do is just accept it, reach the end of the season as quickly as possible, take a break from each other, and come back with charged batteries and focus.

Withholding players from clubs during the Tailteann Cup is, in my mind, madness. Actually, training for this competition is madness. There is no thirst for it among players, supporters, managers or administrators. Forcing players to choose between club competitions they really want to play in (most of them anyhow) and county competitions they are meh about, well thatís just daft.

So just send the players back to their clubs, and field a team in Tailteann when the day comes.

+1 On TheWobs side for once on here lol

Have a life?
Why wouldnít they have a life If they were playing for Down?
They train a few nights a week like most clubs and played most matches this year on a Saturday
What Down players donít have a life

2/3 nights at club training/matches, 2/3 nights at VideoSession/County Training for a competition thatís been ignored by the GAA and wonít be promoted properly. Too much effort for little reward. New York get a bye into the 1/4s and itís regional fixtures until that point

will another election in 6 months have a lower or higher turnout

Depends on how things are goingÖ DUP might get a massive f**k you from the voters who could come out in droves to put the boot into them and make Alliance 2nd biggest party.

SF are pretty safe on all their seats arenít they? So they could gain maybe 2 more if they work hard on getting votes?

SDLP seat in South Down is a target for them and maybe Foyle or Upper Bann for the other?
