They haven't even posted it on their own twitter yet, could they be trying to change it giving the backlash? has this ever happened before?

That new jersey is f**king rotten, why do they have to try so hard. Just keep it simple and clean

Quote from: Derry Optimist on October 17, 2023, 07:00:07 PMNow that we have reached the finals of  the Derry Senior,Intermediate and Junior championships,it would nice for posters who saw many games  to get the opportunity to nominate their  five best players that they saw during the separate championship campaigns. For those supporters, like myself, who were unable to view few, if any games, it would be an ideal chance to learn how Derry football is progressing at club level.

Have watched a brave few Senior and Intermediate games throughout the Championship. Could be missing an obvious name or two but here goes these are my five picks for each:

Senior- Padraig Mcgrogan, Danny Tallon, Conor McCluskey, Kevin Johnston,  Emmett Bradley.
Honourable mention to Peter Stuart Bellaghy Goalkeeper

Intermediate- Gavin O'Neill, Tiarnan Moore, Neil McNicholl, Ryan McNicholl, and the young Banagher goalkeeper Callum Armstrong.

Meenagh gone.

Source?

If you know any Derry players ask them.

Well known over a month Meenagh was gone.

The director of operations and chairman have been working overtime to try and lay the ground for a return for Gallagher but others such as sponsors have other ideas.

No return for RG. A new man/team incoming

Sad really. Hope it doesn't spell the end of this Derry team like in 94 after the removal of Coleman.

Paddy Bradley and Aidan O Rourke could be good shout, Would Damien cassidy like another shot at it?

Definitely the worst shout on here, you cant just give the inexperienced a 'shot at it'. We are at the stage where we are competing for Sam, and just need to get over this team over the line. You cant just throw anyone into the deep end, has to be someone well experienced and capable for the Job. Only men I can think of that could do this and are realistic contenders are MOR, Jim Gavin, and of course Gallagher.

Did lavey hurlers feel they didn't need to engage in WWE wrestling today or what happened?

Did they not have donegal football officials there to save the day?

Firm favourites for a county senior final to 4th place.

Its safe to say after watching todays games the Lynchs are still the second best team in the county. They might not have expected to be in the final next weekend against Slaughtneil for the 5th year in a row after the defeat to lavey, but are there anyway and Slaughtneil would have been looking a handier one.

Played full forward when younger and full back for yrs after as a adult, so the lad asking why the forward holding all game is valid, never done it playing forward, what advantage is it to the forward none, while the pulling and dragging benefits the defender, should know, played both positions a long time.

Exactly, no benefit to the forward whatsoever. In the match when the ball was heading towards the Lynchs forward line there was multiple times where the FF was dragged down. It was plain for everyone to see what was going on.

Going to be a cracking final round of the hurling Group B
Best to keep the donegal officials at home. Out of their depth

What happened?

Full back wrestles with full forward half a dozen times. Both players get booked.

Ref didn't know what to do so had to ask eamon hasson.
Not true. Lavey full back and Lynches full forward were at it all through the match and were warned about their behaviour. 

The referee was aware of this and booked the pair after they were wrestling in the square in the second half.

Its very easy to criticise the referee in the heat of what was a full on hurling championship battle with no quarter asked and none given and probably the best hurling championship match in Derry for a few years.

Why would the Lynchs full forward be wrestling with the full back when the balls coming in? Full back was at it all game and neither the umpires or any of the linesmen who seen it had the balls to intervene. If you take a look at the photos from the game you will see plenty of what happened.

Surprising result in the other game with Coleraine beating Banagher. It will sure be an interesting last round of fixtures, does it go to score difference or head to head if two teams are level on points?
