Quote from: tbrick18 on June 15, 2024, 11:05:46 PMA few players played well, glass, gilmore, Baker, clucky, mcfaul and mulholland.
Very poor showing from some. Murray (is he injured?),  mcguigan, paul cassidy, mckaigue, Rogers were all very poor. Handling errors, shot selection, effort just not there.

Tactics exactly the same and still not working. A better team would have took advantage.
That was just a stay of execution I feel.

And then no subs made when lads were obviously not performing .

Harte has to go.


Clucky and Baker were immense, they just didn't have the support alot the time. Baker took the game by the scruff of the neck when we needed it. The midfield are too static, few men are supporting and getting in front of the ball. Cassidy, Clucky etc making runs and looking for the out ball and the options just weren't there, so very unDerry like. Thought the back 6 all performed well, big Lynch too. We definitely played with a deeper line, Lynch not competing in midfield, worked well as a link man. Glass was well off it again tonight imo.

Re next weekend, it's bound to be Tyrone isn't it! If so, I'll be bringing ear defenders, could not be listening to those lunatics for 2 hours. Loughlin was working with a S&C man before the match, seemed to be going well. His workrate is really missed. Murphy back in action too. CD prob 50/50 and McKindless back. On paper that's all very positive, though that doesn't seem to be transferring onto the pitch atm.

Mario, hopefully you're right!

Id be more optimistic than that. No one has turned over Westmeath easily and the very wet conditions and slippy pitch made it even more difficult to break them down.

Our shooting is just terrible at the minute but at least we didn't cough up 10 goal chances and looked a lot more solid defensively. I think we can improve again the next day and with Mckinless and possibly loughlin or Doherty back we can beat Tyrone, Louth or Mayo.

Quote from: Sheedy on June 15, 2024, 06:45:43 PMJob done, into the semi finals. Performance in the first half was poor, second half was good bit better.
Unless they're injured or carrying knocks, Liam Kerr, Ceilium Doherty and Ryan Johnston have to start imo

Sums it up perfectly. Second half was a big improvement.

Antrim / Re: Antrim Football Thread

PaddyJohn called it 100%.

Just home, tonight was one of my most memorable days watching Antrim in over 50 years. So proud of that second half display, the whole team stood tall when it counted most.

Kavan Keenan, just give him player of the season now, there's me wondering what the hell was he doing as a corner back. Or Eunan at full back. How wrong I was. Joe Finnegan immense too.

But tonight we toast the return of our leader. Peter Healy produced 30 minutes football that will live long in the memory, he turned tonight around almost single handedly, and lit the spark that everyone else bought into.

Proud night to be a Saffron, well done Andy, Tom, Terry and everyone involved. On we go.

moscow mick - I unequivocally supported the sections of the resolution which condemn Russia's war of aggression and call on the Russian Federation to immediately terminate all military activities in Ukraine, unconditionally withdraw its forces, and fully respect Ukraine's territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence. I express my undivided solidarity with the ordinary people of Ukraine and call for urgent diplomatic efforts to secure a ceasefire, for negotiations to end the conflict and the withdrawal of Russian military forces.

Quote from: gallsman on June 13, 2024, 10:24:31 PMNow sure where to put this but given the earlier discussions, Wallace is gone. Get the political obituaries written lads. A real titan has left the stage!

I suppose the funding from Moscow will stop now as well.

It lazy shite like that from media that lost him and Daly their seat. Zero evidence behind it unless you'd like to produce something shoeing putin funds them.

Fair enough I don't have the invoices. But why else would he support the invasion of Ukraine and the ending of its existence? Maybe like a business man in your neighbourhood he bought some Ukrainian property in a false name and the titleholders wouldn't give it back?

Can you provide a link to where he said that please?

He has continually failed to support votes condemning Russia or supporting Ukraine. Since Russia's intention to to end Ukraine's existence then he obviously agrees with that.

Quote from: nrico2006 on June 15, 2024, 09:05:24 PMShould be top 2 through only. Pointless having groups where all teams nearly go through.

Problem with that is that you're gonna end up with dead rubbers for the 3rd game. Harsh expecting teams who have lost their first 2 games to hang around for a fortnight for a pointless game at the end.

It's just a slow death for so many counties. It's incredibly boring. And we have the 2nd and 3rd placed teams burned out with 3 games in 3 weeks, leaving the normally seeded teams with a handy quarter final game.

I agree the group stages have been a failure for the most part. Just no interest in them.

Quote from: SouthOfThe Bann on June 15, 2024, 05:09:14 PMAre you sure Tyrone can't play Cavan again?

I think it might only be avoidance of repeat pairings from Group Stage and provincial finals but could be wrong.
Open to correction on that!

I'm not sure myself.

On the Tailteann thread it says that there will be no draw.

As Antrim have played Down and Sligo so they've been drawn against Kildare or Laois.

So maybe you're right.
