Quote from: statto on November 07, 2023, 11:21:22 AMOf the chasing pack I think that Derry will be best placed. There was obviously alot of turmoil going on in the background last year and Harte being there should increase belief with a hungry manager who has experience of winning multiple all irelands.

He needs to find a few new players.

Quite a number of new call ups afaik, hopefully a few gems maybe!

Quote from: Rawhide on October 27, 2023, 10:24:50 AMLenny I have to agree, white and red are our colours. You look at the Derry jersey from the 90's that is our jersey. The back of this jersey you would swear its the away Tyrone jersey. I actually don't mind the front, apart from the fact its predominately red instead of white.

We wore red with white band in 1958 AI final though!

Quote from: bannside on October 16, 2023, 11:03:48 AMAye surely! Do you want to know what they had for breakfast?

Can Cargin take Glen or Magherafelt, that's the main item on the agenda now. Or Glenravel / Rasharkin in the ulster club?
Going back to Cargin v Derrygonnelly 2019, we underperformed then had a frustrating 3 long years to get another crack (covid year of 2020 and Creggans win) So getting another go at a top team so soon again has to be a good thing for possible progress. We've got one of the hardest draws we could of got but we will have had 5 weeks to prepare so cant complain and what a huge victory it would be should it come off.
Glenravel I would expect to go well in the intermediate Antrim teams have done well in recent years. Don't know so much about the junior grade tbh.

I don't know if you underperformed that day against Derrygonnelly, they were very good that day, as physical as yourselves and took the scores.

Gave the Donegal champions too much of a start that year and had all the momentum but ran out of time, going to be a hard game again this year, be interesting to see how Cargin approach the game, that'll be down to who they get I suppose, but keeping it tight early doors and then going at them and putting them on the back foot.. Should be a good game, might even head up to Derry (if its there and not Owenbeg)

Are we going for a 2 all draw after ET?  ;D

Couldn't be worse than Antrim final of 2018, could it?  ;D

Am I right in saying that the losers of this saturdays relegation play off, can still opt to play senior championship next year anyway??

As you say let them pay visit to Tom Toal or other such establishments to be suitably rewarded....

Be great to see Dunloy win

Quote from: giveherlong on September 19, 2023, 09:42:20 PMYou'd have to think that the new setup will feel like a step down for the Glen players when they rejoin the panel going from O'Rourke/Porter to Devlin and Harte.

What way did G Devlin finish up with Slaughtneil? Did he win a championship and was given the road then?

Unreal the crap thats talked by some clowns on here

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on September 18, 2023, 10:46:48 PMToo be honest am not as disappointed as many, once O'Rourke (love to know why, someone said he wouldn't take it as he wasn't 1st choice) and Meenagh didn't take it, who else was there of proven background available. Dublin Jim the height of it with the Donegal one already taken.

Is one of the reasons because O'Rourke is going travelling for a few months next year?

Shane Heavron is undoubtedly a very talented footballer and a brilliant penalty taker. However I think it was Shane's own decision to leave the panel as he felt that he was not getting enough game time. The counter argument apparently was that he did not have the work rate for modern football. I do not know how accurate that assessment  is because I did not see enough of him playing for Derry.


Anybody see other possible recruits for Senior call ups?Are Cahir McMonagle and Peter McCullagh possibles in this regard? Of course Ryan Dougan and Jack Doherty would be decided assets if they declared themselves available. Anybody know if Matthew and Enda Downey are fit again?

I don't buy that at all, he's one of the best forwards in the county & a big game player, he'd be a serious addition to that panel at all accounts Rory shafted him

No man would have slept better in his bed last night than Lavey manager Gary Cushnehan.

A searing platter of humiliation kindly handed to Damian Cassidy, no doubt a settling of scores for his role in sending Lavey down a division.

As for the Lavey performance,  I have not seen them perform as well since their glory days.

Has a sleeping giant just been awakened?

I genuinely can't believe the Derry County Board are even considering this -  surely they had  moved passed him & if Ciaran Meenagh wasn't in a capacity to continue then after the year Derry have had they've moved into a totally different bracket to attract top men.

just on that, really who is the candidates apart from O'Rourke? There isn't too many I can think of

He is finished in the GAA, no one would touch him now at this stage.

He isn't finished in the GAA though?

Heard a rumour there has been a court case or something like since the time which exonerates RG and he will be taken back by Derry next year.

You've your finger on the pulse re Gallagher, are these the same rumours you heard before or a new source?

Heard something very similar
