Antrim / Re: ANTRIM HURLING

MR2 as paranoid as usual. According to him anyone in a black shirt can do no wrong. The report on the saffron Gael page was written by a Dunloy man. NAH it was a physical game and there were poor tackles from both teams and when the ruckus started players from both teams were swinging digs. It happens some times, don't get yer nickers in a twist.

Imm ok
This discussion board isn’t the place to bring up some of the things a lot of our forwards where subjected to off the ball. Some of our forwards are kids in senior terms. Come championship when the Ref has umpires that stuff will disappear. Thought your manager let himself down by arguing stone cold frees,  It’s up to him to Instill some discipline.
On balance that was a hard game to Ref and O Neil did fine
For what it’s worth there isn’t much in those two teams and when you consider cushendall had more players on for Antrim the day before I think the Dall are still the team come championship, sure the bookies know the score.

Disappointed to have lost to Dunloy. Thought we were the better team for much of the game. You'd have to question the free count. Dunloy got 14 scorable frees, we got 5. We gave away 3 points from short passing errors and Dunloy had 4 frees moved forward 10 yards and scored them all. Never the less pleased with the display of a lot of our players. Dunloy now very much favorites for the championship having beaten ourselves and loughgiel.

You will find the other team will get more frees if your discipline is shocking.
Dall where intent on making some sort of statement but some of it bordered on thuggery. M o Neil moved some balls for you guys to when dunloy players where mouthing. How can you complain about the ReF when he fell for a Mc Manus special inside the square. Never a penalty, all in all the decisions balanced out and dunloy deserved the win

Team v Laois
                          1 Ryan Elliott.
2 Stephen Rooney. 3 John Dillon. 4 Arron Graffin. 
5 Paddy Burke. 6. Conor McKinley. (Capt). 7 Ryan McCambridge.
           8 Eddie McCluskey. 9 Simon McCrory.
10 Nigel Elliott. 11 Conor Johnston. 12 James McNaughton. 
13 Donal McKinley.  14 Conor Carson.  15 Daniel McCluskey. 

16 Chrissy O’Connell
17 Matthew Donnelly. 
18 Neil McAuley   
19 Conor Boyd. 
20 Conor McCann. 
21  Neil McManus. 
22  David Kearney. 
23 Gérard Walsh. 
24 Eoin O’Neill. 
25 Ryan McNulty. 
26 Ciaran Clarke
27 Keelan Molloy
28 Conor McHugh. 
29 Tommy Burns

Don't feel Carson is fit for a full game better coming in off the bench. Good to see McNaughton starting brilliant player however Gérard Walsh should be starting imo one of the best in the county, that half forward line is scary if it gets time to hurl

The half forward line won’t win much puc outs!

You mean the ones coming down 70s style with snow on them
How many inter county forwards have to win them these days

Confirmed. Fair play to the lad - first year outta minor too.

Wait till he returns from the WC with his fragile confidence shot to bits by the media expecting miracles from him.

God forbid he makes a mistake which costs a goal, he'll be hounded.

Unfortunately thats the issue with TAA (& Gomez). Very good for 95% of the game but liable to make a naive mistake and get caught on the wrong side/ball watching that leads to a goal.

Makes you appreciate just how good Steve Finnan and Rob Jones (for some of you older lads  ;) ) were.

He left himself exposed when they played Man Utd and Rashford took full advantage
I haven’t seen him do it since. He’s only a pup be learning very fast. Not the finished product yet but will get there.

FFS like the Stoke game they wouldn't have scored if they were there for another 90 mins.
Massive pressure now on the Brighton game. Top 4 should have been secured weeks ago.

That was brutal, Salah has lost his mojo and Firmino not much better.
Brighton won’t be quaking in their boots after watching that. Let’s hope they find some form before Kiev

Christ, are you basing that on two games. Salah and Firmino have played brilliantly all year. I would expect they will be flying for the CL final.

Yeah I am basing it on the last two games. If you read my next post I even suggested tiredness. Who was talking about the CL final. Imm more worries about the Brighton must win scenario because of how poor we have been this last three weeks. Again just for you I put it down to the emotional and physical drain of CL games this last month. “OK Honey”

The weeks break now might be very valuable, and then 2 weeks before Kiev. I didn't see much of today bar the last 10 minutes and about 5 minutes before half time. Liverpool looked to have a load of possession, with Chelsea sitting deep. That's the recipe alright. That's where the likes of Coutinho is still missed. Anyway, no injuries I take it, so a full week, tear into Brighton, and maybe Huddersfield and David Wagner can do Liverpool a favour before then. Spurs must be nervous too.

Was thinking that myself, they are playing teams who are fresher due to no European football. But still Liverpool always keep you sweating.

Would be gutted if Liverpool don’t get through tomorrow night.
Real Madrid have used all their luck to get there and don’t look as good as previous years
Could Liverpool beat them “absolutely”

The Liverpool supporter in a critical condition after being attacked is Sean Cox, 53, who is heavily involved with St. Peter's GAA club in Dunboyne - he's a former chairman of the club.

Though presumably we'll have some "edgy" attempts on the part of posters who have vilified Liverpool supporters in the past to label him as a "football hooligan".

Agreed he’s sounds like a real candidate for a underground firm running about looking for trouble. Well done to anyone on here trying to link this man and the clowns who stoned the Man City bus.

Indeed. Even after all the improvements in stadiums, stewarding, policing there is a small core of scumbags attached to many clubs. It used be called the English disease but all over the continent in places like Poland Italy Hungary these so called "Ultras" who, when they behave are seen as providing atmosphere, are acting the bollix and creating threatening environments at games and outside the grounds. What is the point of going to matches if you have to enter an environment of heavy security, searching etc?

You've obviously never been to a European away game where heavy security, searching etc is the norm. Some of it can be quite heavy handed and on almost all occasions totally uncalled for. There are of course exceptions to the norm, Villa Real being one that stands out as being very relaxed, but I find the Spanish police to be as bad and in many case worse than the Italians.

I was at a Juve - Real Champions League game in Turin, and the searching was laughable. In the stand the Madrid fans were set up above left of the Juve Curva, where we were, and for most of the game missiles rained down on us, including lit flares. One hit me, burned my jacket and melted the seat it then landed on.

You sure you didn’t provoke them by stating “ no one on that pitch has the skill sets of John Troy” or “ Italian defenders are shite compared to whelahan”

I think Klopp got complacent at that point. The change there was probably Moreno on the left, and move Mane over to the right.  At worst it should have been Ings in the centre and Firmino on the right.
Yeah, in hindsight that would have been better alright, but in reality, the players coming on need to be of a higher standard than Moreno and Ings.
I would love liverpool to go after that sessengon lad from fulham, he would have been ideal to spring from the bench last night .
The lack of MF cover is also a worry. henderson and milner ran out of steam a bit in the last 10 minutes after putting in a great shift.
While you could argue what substitution could have been made, I don't think it played a part in the comeback. That was down to one horrible error by Lovren.
After that the panic set in, as it does with Liverpool, and we were absolutely dreadful as an entire defensive unit for 5 minutes or so until the second goal came. In fairness, we did re-establish a bit of calmness after the break for the penalty.

Between Mane's first miss and the Roma first goal, we were absolutely excellent. Maybe helped by Roma tactics, but we were good enough to take advantage. Still though, given how bad we can be (particularly Karius and Lovren) the tie is far from won.

Ox's injury leaves us with zero players who I'd be comfortable bringing on from midfield up! Squad is incredibly bare.

I thought Wijnaldum had his best game of the season. The more attacking his role is, the better he plays.
