United might learn soon, mind you no sign of it yet, that being successful isnít by taking the Football Manager/FIFA Video game approach of just buying expensive attacking players with no plan on how to integrate them into a functioning structured team. Albeit you need a manager that has a plan. United donít.

Tory MP stabbed to death...

Heard that on the radio on the way home. Don't like the Tories myself, but by fcuk I'd never wish a stabbing to death on anyone really.

Not sure itís necessary to qualify your post

Take Dunloy hurlers as an example. Do Dunloy think they need to rely on schools or county development squads to make their players better. Not a chance.

They built their own facility, set up own centre of excellence, brought in own top rated S/C practitioners and most of al, treated their kids like kings from they were 6 years of age.

At no stage do they rely on a school or county led initiative to make THEIR players better.

That's the model right there as far as I can see!!
I'd be surprise if Dunloy didn't have a very supportive primary school helping getting the boys hurling and playing football. In belfast there are lots of diffferent sports pushed in schools but hopefully gaelfast will make a difference

Dunloy wouldnít be a great example, a club that was coming from a lot of success. Hurlings ingrained in the village and most of the families. Many of the current players fathers in Dunloy had Antrim championship medals coming out their ears. They werenít starting from zero.

From my own experience a club can be doing great things but if the kids at u-9 or u-10 are only training one hour a week for example and donít lift a hurl the rest of the week itís hard for them to reach their full potential.

Many families in clubs in Belfast donít have a Gaa background and donít push the kids (in a good way) and a lot of times itís just a passing fad and they donít stick at it. From what I have seen any parents that are involved in the club and have a background in Gaa the kids will stick at it.

An underrated aspect of Dunloys play was their tackling, dunno how many times a Rossa player went down to dip a ball and the Dunloy player just flicked it away, they made a difficult enough skill look very easy at times.

Was too big a game for some of the Rossa players. Dunloy streets ahead

They will probably buy enough in January to stay up but would imagine they will be top 4 & pushing the top teams hard within 5 years
