The two big games of the weekend are in division 1b tomorrow. RGU v Loughinisland and Ford v Carryduff. Looking at the last round of fixtures I imagine that these four teams could win the last round so it means this weekend is so vital. Carryduff will really want to cement their safety to bed this weekend so I fear for Bryansford.
The games should be streamed by the clubs as they are so important.

If you want to see the games pay your money at the gate and watch them, saying clubs should pay for streaming etc.. The shite you spout gets worse and worse

Interesting to see who the panel will be now - plenty of players have had run ins with Laverty over the years (young and old).

Also I take it this is Laverty retired from Football? Be some going to manage county then tog out for club

In roughly 12 hours you’ve gone from wondering why D2 teams aren’t competitive at reserve level, to recommending seeding so we can ensure that it never happens again.

You’re hard to keep up with.

Teachers.. you know what there like, career gets in the way of their drinking hobby, get a bit dopey during the summer so they do

Changed last sentence because nothing proven around that but look at the media spout past few days since the PII was announced a lot off reports against nationalism.. Fladh, GAA, Graffiti on OI Buisness owner.. Deflection tactics which older posters you’d think would recognise

In fairness I’d say the folk protesting at Newry wouldn’t know if a ball was pumped up or stuffed. I’d be concerned if the St Michael’s team wouldn’t want to be recognised as St Michael’s PSNI team. Are the members ashamed of their origins?

They worried about security of members?

i.e. dissidents put a pipe bomb in a changing room or something.

(To be clear, not saying that it would happen - just saying they are worried something like that might happen)

I would assume that’s why they wouldn’t want it broadcast beforehand that a PSNI team would be playing.

Played at tournaments before where it was known they were playing.. Utter bullshit from the PSNI to distract from them covering up Noah Donahoes death

PSNI trying to play victim card due to them being disgraced by writing dead taigs on photographs they’ve taken of suicide victims.

I’ve played in Inter-Firms and A memorial tournament which PSNI played at both and we knew that they were playing at the tournaments a couple of weeks before it was played.

They’ve pulled out of a tournament that Clan na banna in Down have organised because they released the teams who were playing in the tournaments names. There’s a St.Michaels GAA club in Down and PSNI call themselves St Michaels so to differentiate between the two clubs CLB named them St Michaels PSNI and they pulled out over it

Ohh I fully agree we need someone like Gallagher who will take no shit but there isn't many of his elk around as far as I know??.. Back to O'Neill only thing I can think for him to leave would be the travelling, I'm not sure where he is living why I would even approach him just to see if somewhere closer to home would be of interest too him.

Malachy O'Rourke is another name I wouldn't mind us going for although depends how Glen go in Derry if he'll want to change.

Please understand we are probably the least attractive county job out there at present. No regular training facility, an inept county board, players who would rather spoof on a podcast than put their shoulder to the wheel, players who won’t commit to the county, huge player turnover in last few years - I agree with previous poster about it being a 5 year project - but that’s two fold
1. People giving the management team that length of time to build and maintain a group of players
2. Players willing to put everything into the cause for this period of time with possibly little reward but in the knowledge they are leading us in the right direction again.

I get what your saying - but apparently the Co Board almost talked Jim into taking the job last year so MOR should be at least approached, he's built teams before and give him the time he needs if he's interested.

Bar I think he’s working in UL.. Cian O’Neill would be my choice to go for it, I thought he done well with Kildare and then he was in the background team for Galway this year.. Could have a point too prove.
Why would he leave Galway. A team capable of winning Sam with a few tweaks. He is better as a  coach like Paddy Tally. But Tally should've got more time. Wee James hadn't a chance . We need someone like Gallagher at Derry who gets the players to all fall in behind him. Those who don't want to play forget about them work with those hungry to play for the county. Laverty and Clarke are going well at U20 I'd say they're happy to stay there. But if they got senior it's not a 3 yr job they need 5 years at least to start something .

Has there been a better performance from a losing player than Shane Walsh?

Donegal seniors are on the hunt as well
I am glad we learnt from our mistakes from 2021

They’re going to keep McCartan, cheap option

Would expect Ronan McCartan to be a strong candidate for the county minors.
Successful with Saul, bit of time with Ballymartin, County Ladies, Down U20s.

Impressive enough cv.

County ladies relegated to junior football on his watch so he jumped before being pushed. He is also the coach of Glen and has a new role with rostrevor as underage development coordinator. Not sure he would have the time for minors tbh.

From what I can see a lot of those ladies which played when they won the All-Ireland either have moved abroad or retired/have had children.. Ronan seemed to be breaking down the clicks within the squad and introducing fresh faces, was doing a good job bar results imo

When will pundits call out kerry persistent fouling and sledging? They are this long before PaddyTally  came in. Pat Spillane  likes to proclaim he calls as he sees motto over the years but when comes to Kerry all is brushed under the carpet.  Joe Brolly only to call out and Spillane never had a stroke when he spoke about it. Dublin have rightly been called out for their cynical play over the years why Kerry b

Lol.. A dub saying Kerry were cynical, definition of Irony
