Derry Optimist

Cathair O'Kane is undoubtedly one of our best GAA journalists who is always thinking about the game and how it can be improved. He has always something worthwhile to say on a variety of issues. His player and game analysis on major games are  nearly always accurate,definitely insightful and very honest. The fact that he admitted that he got the square ball decision initially wrong in the Lavey/Ballinascreen game  and went to the trouble of double checking it,  is further proof of a journalist of the utmost integrity.

Cahair has watched a replay and says correct call on the square ball. Just saying

Cahair changed his mind again!!

It's done now so no point dwelling on it. I'd expect an appeal on Benny's red card. It was never a red for a push in the chest.

Was at the game and thought at the time that it was the face. Could be wrong though. Toner made the most of it but technically a strike.
He was lucky the ref didn't see his earlier haymaker off the ball on one of the Lavey players when tracking back.

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.

Pretty sure I read 1,2,3 get the respective finals, no final for the 2 fourth placed teams but na magha are the only "junior" standard team so will go into Ulster there

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.

Would there be mamy dual players for the lynch's? Slaughtneil, swatragh and Coleraine seem to have loads that start in both there Gaelic and hurling teams

So no Meenagh going forward, Am accepting nobody less than O'Rourke or Jim Gavin lol, if we gonna win something big.

Our self-appointed CEO will do all in his power to get Gallagher reappointed.

The Trap

If not Gallagher or ORourke then who?

For me the biggest concern now that Meenagh has ruled himself out, it continuity.
This senior team is probably currently 1 step away from an AI. If we bring in an entirely new management team they will undoubtedly want to implement their own style of play. That will take time for players to become comfortable with.
We risk falling back a little now with that prospect.

No idea what the DCB are planning but you'd have to imagine O'Rourke is top of the list. If that's the case, the deal may already have been done and any announcements are being held until the end of the club championship for Glen.
If he's not in the running, Gallagher is probably being talked about and perhaps they are waiting the outcome of the Ulster Council investigation.
If they clear him, then DCB can safely re-appoint him with any flak being directed to the Ulster Council perhaps?

No idea.
But really it has to be someone like O'Rourke/Gallagher/Gavin or dare I say it, Mickey Harte, to give us a shot at an AI.


The Trap

If somehow they wriggle Gallagher back in what will his backroom team be? Meenagh and Hughes are gone and they played very significant roles.
If they want Gallagher so badly and it doesn't work out will that put off ORourke? Will he want to leave Glen anyway?
Mickey Harte and Gavin Devlin is a good shout but they have committed to Louth.
Mickey Moran and his Kilcoo men maybe but has Gilligan committed to Armagh?

Wildweasel74

Can't see Gallagher back in the current climate, there is a All-Ireland in that team and O'Rourke bound know that, he was sitting behind me at the quarter final. There nobody else in the county anywhere near it, the day of appointing the cheapest option is gone.
