Surly Lenny cannot get another year ? Yes it might not all be his fault but he has to take some of the blame and without naming players some of them shouldn't be n the squad never mind the starting 15. He might not have the best players available but its quite obvious he doesn't know how to manage these players as a group and having them play together - also his tactics stink 2 sweepers and a 'blocker' I've never heard the likes of it no sympathy for him if he is going to try and play football like that. I went over to watch them against the POLY and made my views clear we wouldn't get anywhere and I was right.

Lenny will get another year coz he's cheap and he cant get relegated.

Maybe someone at county board level should ask themselves why the best players in the county are not offering themselves to play for the county. Damning indictment of  the set up.  As PJ just said 'Do what youíve always done, and youíll get what you always got'

Who are these better players Spike? Have they refused to play? Wasted their chance to play for their county?

Teams/players  are doing the usual nowadays, if we donít like the set up they donít bother.

If they (whoever they are, as Iím keen to know) turned up and committed would we be any better?

Quick test MR - run your eye down both the Cargin & St Galls teamsheets from the 2018 county semi final and tell me what players are better than what we have in the county squad at the moment. 
Quick hint - a combo of non-county players from those two club sides sides would beat our current county team. Our county champions representation is nothing short of shameful from the county boards perspective.  where else would it be allowed to happen? why is it always the stay-aways fault?

Sure the Antrim County Footballer advert sells itself:

1) Guaranteed Division 4 football every year - and that's a promise!
2) Same day return on Air conditioned bus for cold February trips to Waterford
3) Early wake up call for day trips. *02 to 02 Networks Only*
4) Expenses treated on a 'paid when paid' basis
5) No overseas trips - help the environment!
6) If injured on duty, we will help you fill your forms out so you can claim off clubs insurance!
7) Free tickets to national league Division 4 games. (Limited to 2 per player) *may be subject to checks*
8) Guaranteed visit to two away County Grounds each championship season *Note this may increase if win in qualifiers. Unlikely*
9) Guaranteed West Belfast Manager with no intercounty experience - You learn as he learns - double bonus! One on one coaching as we limit amount of 'hanger ons' like physios, doctors, assistant managers, coaches, Trainers etc etc
10) To progress you train on your own - save the County Board money so they can invest in a new stadium / stand / county ground / addiction recovery / other ventures undisclosed. Individual training helps build mental strength!
11) You can visit GAA and Antrim County's greatest White Elephant  - Dunsilly - where you can park and view (for a brief period) *stay off the grass*
12) In case it is actually used, you are entitled to a free bus ticket from Enkalon Industrial Estate Car Park to Dunsilly if crowd more than 10 people.  *u16 matches only*
13) One free pass each season to visit the wild grasslands of Casement. *No photography allowed* *No friends or family allowed*
14) Free Soup and Sandwich with every away trip *water excluded* *if under 18, sandwich excluded*

Best post in a long time....

Lamh Dhearg vs cargin  - referee from St Galls and the winner probably plays st galls in the semi final.

The referee has a good reputation but for the avoidance of any doubt he shouldn't be reffing it. END OF. Problem Solved

Great win on Sunday

Antrims forward line is brilliant..get tomas mccann back on to that team and would be as good as any in division 2 or 3

Defence seems poor tho and the system is there to help it - good management by lenny - bit of hope creeping in again for this team?

Cargin were very poor - st johns deserved to win but great comeback to get the draw.

Replay will be in Ahoghill

StGalls, Creggan or LD could all make the final - I dont think there is much between them. All three have a few quality forwards in niblock, pollock, smalls,ruari mccann, murrays but weaker defences. Saying that i think St Galls have the stronger defence so will come through.

Cargin and StJohns should progress unscathed and expect a very close game come the semi final.

StJohns have improved dramatically this year and I think they will become the team to beat in the next few years.

Just heard Cargin got presented with the league trophy before the game yesterday...."chairman was in a rush"....and could not wait until after the game.

Sums up Antrim for me and how highly the county board value the football..

Players thought it was a disgrace and totally disrespectful

Antrim County lack ambition as a whole - seems to start at county board level and filters right through to the actual players.

2009 and few years after that proved that Antrim have the players to compete with most teams bar the top bracket.

I honestly feel if the county board showed ambition and put together a structured management team with a proven manager that has a goal for Antrim we would see a massive difference.

Unfortunately i feel it lies with the county board and until they show the ambition needed to compete, Antrim will find themselves were the deserve to be - the worst team in Ulster and in the lowest league in the NFL

Unfortunately Fitzy and Adams arent the answer and before taking the Antrim job would have struggled to get a top club team in Antrim never mind a County Job.
