McQuillan's whatsapp group has been shut down.  There have been some mildly dissenting voices on it recently.
Pravda has been redesigned and will now take the form of an emailed newsheet

Stupid to ever have used it in the first place. Once the whinging starts ......

Surprised that anybody on here would characterise disagreement as whinging.  It's what makes this place tick.

theres probably only 3 who could get it... owen elliott, mark o'neill or fionntan mc cotter

Can't see why mr2 couldn't get the gig either

Could be lined up for the minor final.  He's reffed a few of those games.

It's ironic that Naomh Padraigs present coach is the lad who was ousted from the minor job in Ballycastle after working with underage teams in the Town for a good few years (volunteered for the senior job when no-one else wanted it and then got shafted in it too).

I'm sure it would have been bittersweet for him to have faced the Town in the final.

Interesting final  not a "traditional" rivalry.  How often have they met?  Can remember 1 time the Dall beating Dunloy in a final but that's maybe 20 years ago?

My predictions as good as the BBC's weather forecast  ;D

Congratulations Cushendall & Dunloy.  Good luck in the final.

Not going to be pleasant.  Heavy rain forecast most of afternoon though it's still dry here and rain was forecast for now.   It's also fairly breezy.

As for yesterday that was pretty disappointing but I suppose it was a bit delusional to think that a month of taking training seriously would be sufficient to trouble a fully committed, talented Dunloy team. 

The rain has now arrived (11:45).  Knocklayde's invisible.  Bring your wets lads!

Predictions for the weekend

The return of the Prodigal Saul makes me think the Town might squeak it.

Dunloy v Ballycastle      -  Ballycastle by 2

Cushendall v Loughgiel  - Loughgiel by 3

2.  'BRING BACK HUMPY'.....go and check your temperature, think you've got a fever and it's making you dilusional! What has he ever achieved as a manager....nothing. There's no track record there, he walked out on us (prior to being sacked) for a paid coaching/management role so don't go on about the money money money, (wee song there!)....when you talk of people who shouldn't be allowed back add Humpy to your list. And go a step further add yourself to the list. Your 'support' is neither wanted nor needed in our club.


This looks like a re-writing of history here.

As far as I know Humpy's first coaching\management role since leaving Ballycastle has been with Glenariffe (who approached him) this year. So he didn 't walk out for a paid role anywhere.  And "prior to being sacked"?  First I've heard of it though that may have been the plan.  The same sort of plan that had to be implemented against Raymond.
I think most people know what happened to Humpy & Nander and who was responsible.

What has he achieved? 
Wasn't he involved with Antrim senior hurlers with McKernan when they won the Christy Ring?

Was he not involved with a school Camogie team that won an All-Ireland?

Did he not take Camogie teams to Feile titles and a 7-a-side title?

I'd ask what has any manager achieved with this squad despite having some very talented hurlers.  Michael McShane couldn't achieve anything with them and he had 3 years at it.  And yet he goes to Slaughtneil and turns them into Ulster champions.  Nander goes to Cloughmills and takes them to a championship.

Until attitudes change among some of the players it wouldn't matter if we had Cody and all his backroom team running the show.

If anybody thinks that THINGSTHATNEEDSAID is a Ballycastle man I'd think they're badly mistaken.

"Death before dishonour"?  The honourable thing to have done would have been to stick with and support the man who put his hand up when nobody else was interested.

Heard that this morning myself
He is eligible to play alright but won't be starting due not attending training because of soccer
He's a lost cause in hurling for club and county
Pity he's a class act

"won't be starting" leaves room for him to come on at some stage. :-)

Don't know if he's a total lost cause.  We've had other players who opted for soccer for short periods like Clarkey and Jennings and came back.  As I said before he's young and might settle yet

the big men in cloaks that run the show behind the scenes for us  got the young lad a few to come home from the states early

And this isn't true either.

can Saul Mc Caughan hurl for the town?   Wasn't he in San Fran hurling for the summer?? or did he walk away (as usual)  after being looked after all summer??  :o

wonder will they give Saul a few more to play this weekend

You seem to have it in for Saul.  I've never heard of him being paid to play for Ballycastle and think that is just bullshit.
I'd concede that sometimes his commitment to training etc isn't the greatest but he's a brilliant hurler and when he goes out to play a game he gives it everything.  He's only a young lad still 21? ish so plenty time for him to develop.
