Poor Silver hill has put in a bad week, poor chap.

All this talk is deflecting from the very poor performance of the Glen team on Sunday.  This was a game, even without winning it, for Glen to show everyone that they are a serious team and will be challenging for senior honours in the coming years.  In my opinion it was just another typical Glen championship performance that we have been used to over the years.

Can Bradley, McFaul, Tallon etc bring them to the next level? i have major doubts?

God help Damien McErlean if he has to try and pick county players out of those 65 odd players on show tonight.

Handiest championship Slaughtneil will ever win, and they are far from the finished article.

McErlean to keep us in division 3 will be a success in my eyes.

the dogs on the street know the new manager is Damian McErlean.  It cannot be announced until the minors season is over, to not distract the lads.

I wish him all the best. Massive step up from minor though.

Pat Gilroy was a young, inexperienced manager when he took over Dublin. However he took in the experienced Mickey Whelan into his backroom team which was a huge benefit to him.  I think McErlean should do something similar

Bellaghy's league and championship results in recent years have been shocking.  would they average 5 wins per year in the last few years?

Was in Owenbeg Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Glen and Coleraine impressive. Slaughtneil below par but saw the game out. Banagher well worth the victory.  Loup too complacent. Worst Dungiven team in manys a year, Kilrea marginally better.  And Magherafelt, well they were just magherafelt, shite.

Slaughtneil, Coleraine, Glen and Banagher to reach semis

Banagher full value for their victory. Better side on the night.  Think Loup took them too lightly. Lynch near lost it for them at the death, but to be fair got them over the line at the end.

On a side note, who would want to manage their own club team? Loup management taking a lot of stick from a sizeable Loup contingent during and after the game.  More thought of you taking an outside team and getting the brown envelope.

So Screen no 7 Bradley receives another red card on Sunday, who many incidents has this man been involved in?  But i suppose if the club keep picking him... ::)

And then the loup chairman, ex referee thinks its ok to jump the wire and start throwing punches at the Screen management! Will he get punished or swept under the carpet?

Maybe Seamus Downey was right, maybe we do need bouncers at the dugout areas during games.

You heard here first. The Cassidy brothers have already got the job

Going by Cassidy Jr's results with Bellaghy so far this year they will happily release him to go to Derry.

Maybe Rafferty wasn't such a bad manager after all!!

If you have a problem, thrash it out with the manager face to face.

Manager is taking a lot of stick, however i think he is working with a bunch of spoilt, childish men, with massive ego's.  imagine being dropped for a game and then sending a text to the manager saying you are leaving the panel.  ::)  grow a set FFS

Reading on the Tyrone thread there about the amount of people that are inside the pitch at league games and I have to agree. Only one manager should be allowed on the touchline, everyone else in the dugout.
I went to Loup and Bellaghy game last night. Loup had 5 "managers" up the line, all roaring instructions onto the pitch. I just cant see how this is even beneficial for them.
Decent game though, with a draw the fair result

I'll have some of what Braveheart is drinking :D

A Swatragh man confident of beating Ballinderry in a Championship match!!

How many senior championship games would Swatragh have won in the last 20 years? I'd guess Ballinderry have won more championships than Swatragh have games in this period.

Heard there could be investigation into a row after the Bellaghy v kilrea minor game.  Players being hit and injured by opposition senior players after the game.  Not good

I've asked this question before, what is Tony Scullions role in the county set up? I can only presume he is in as a defensive coach.

Hard luck to Slaughtneil today, sad end to a great journey. However there achilles heel over the years of bad discipline came back to haunt them today. That's what will annoy Mickey Moran the most tonight. He thought he had stamped that out of them.

Congratulations to the convent. History makers.
