I'm sure like the Dortmund lads there will be a sense of WTF!! but they are not going to get a better chance to progress, they are proffesional and should they apply themselves do enough to get over the line....

I'll be refereeing tonight so will get back for extra time and the penalties

What age are the kids?  If you go for a pup it's worse than having a new kid. There's the hassle of toilet training, preparing secure space for him in the garden, cleaning up the poo outside, deciding where in the house he can have access to, getting up early in the morning to let him out etc.  There are also costs involved, neutering ( a must ) kennelling, grooming, etc. As regards food, go for the nuts and remember the better the food, the less cleaning up you'll have. We had a cocker and they are class, great fun but completely mad and need lots of exercise. We have a Bichon now got him when he was 15 months and still a handful. Finally Bitch is better than a dog. I know I've had cross words with you in the past, can't even remember what it was over to be honest, and nor do I care.  Good luck with the dog, whatever you decide.

I know I'll be left to do the walks cleaning and training !! Kids are 13 and 16 both girls which I hope will help! The sister in law has a Bicon she's on her second now, lovely dog...

At least I'll have someone who'll greet me when I get home from work!!

Any dog with cocker blood in him will be fun, friendly and very energetic. I'd strongly advise you, though, to get a fully grown dog if you can, about 3 year old, rather than a pup. A pup is a torture.

I fully agree but I'm not in charge lol

Looking a family pet, I've  have finally given in and the kids are looking for a Cockapoo, would be interested in breeders who are reputable and established, this would be a must...

Tbf, we probably don't even consider what happens in say Pakistan until something like this happens and it makes us think about what might motivate someone to do something like this.

Although in this case, the guy was British so atrocities in other parts of the world don't play a direct role

I consider what goes on in every country that has a bombing which kills innocent people men women and children as awful!  anyone who doesn't is a sad individual, a parent who has lost a child will feel the same no matter where they are from or religion they are

My first act would be to ask why are parents not feeding their kids breakfast?? Brexit?
A really mature comment indeed MR2......but I do wonder if such would be your reasoning if you had a son on the minor panel and indeed you flippancy underlines a couldn't care less attitude.
Take a dander up to Milltown Row some evening and have a yarn with a former Gall's manager who was asked to dig deep into his pocket at the week-end Clan Ree stop, or the centre back who played a leading role on Sunday's successful minor team and learn.
Seems you really have really gained respect aplenty for our beloved county board nowadays which does differ considerably from those bygone days on another like site. ;)

Are you still talking about the lack of money within Antrim county board? And not feeding the kids ?? Dig deep into your pockets cb as the county has no money as far as I can see... you really think they can pull money from thin air? Nuts absolutely nuts!!

My issues were over fixtures and how it affecting the senior team I managed, like all concerned managers do who have dual players and county players, oh wait, you wouldn't

It's a relevant point that we (understandably considering our proximity) hear endlessly about these atrocities when they occur in the "west" but not at all when they happen in muslim countries. I presume the reverse happens in muslim countries where drone attacks and the likes are all over the news.

The countries (all security council members) who sell these weapons have most of this blood on their hands imo.

Course they do, I don't know anybody who would think otherwise, the point is the timing of the thread, you don't feel that it was strange?

Counter threads put up to get a reaction after one attack. Instead of putting this attack up last week, no wait till kids are blown up on your doorstep...

A couple of things:

-When you start a thread, is it with the intention that there is no reaction? You like looking at the 0 replies beside it?
-What attack should I have put up last week?
-I didn't read this until today, so I was unable to post it up.
-You don't know anything about my doorstep or who's on it, do you?

Just a coincidence then...
It's not. It was on my mind so I posted it. Like most threads. I'd say your initial reply, all the replies you could have made, is more questionable.

Dead on

We could stop paying refs aswell and not buy tracksuits for players or stop paying the county secretary a salary. Make them do it for nothing, really get back to the volunteer status of the association as money is so tight that we can't throw a 17 year old a breakfast or a senior player a post match dinner. Adopt Trumps saying, MAKE ANTRIM GREAT AGAIN! Make people work for us and that will increase the possibility of everybody fulfilling their potential. Build a wall and keep the Down, Derry & Tyrone clubs out of our leagues, have Antrim leagues for Antrim teams. Have Antrim managers only in charge of Antrim clubs, no outsiders, don't allow outside players from other counties to play for our clubs.

 ;) ;) ::)

Smashing idea. I think you should run for chairman as you have great qualities

We are undoubtedly dwelling in the basement in the country and indeed it would be difficult to envisage better times ahead until we answer the difficult questions truthfully.
Had we the best players in the county involved on Sunday...?
Just where were men like Mick Mc Cann, Justin Crozier, Niall Mc Keever, the Burke brothers, the Johnstons, and more than a few others who are certainly more than capable of still wearing the Saffron.
Aye right they removed themselves from the panel and nobody bothers to ask why......
We are a county which has no training facilities, and indeed one in which the senior team management are forced to organise fund raising events and are asked to pay for those players who had the cheek to eat steak on the road and make use of far too many shower caps....ffs.
Then we have the minor management asked to fund away 'challenge games' themselves and forced to dig into their own pockets on Sunday last to come up with payment for extra pre game breakfasts in Donegal.
We do have a duty of care for those young men/kids who can provide a better future but in my humble opinion and in more than a few others we have failed dismally.

I am most afraid that unless radical change of attitude in those who would lead us and a realization that they are of much lesser importance than those who will wear the Saffron jersey failure will continue as the diet

Were most of those guys not involved when Fermanagh hammered us in the last couple of years??

Hardly hammered on either occasion......the home side scored a penalty in the latter stages in 2015 to win 1-13 to 0-08 having played with against a 14 man Antrim for most of the game in 2015.
In 2016 Fermanagh won by five pts after a strong finish.....

And ur point is......?



Id say the point is we are still shite, even more shit to be beaten by a team that has a smaller group to pick from (I'd imagine) But if you think its the food the players are not getting then keep going

Talking about other players not on the senior team is daft.... that's the squad that committed to staying the distance... whether there are better players not playing county is irrelevant as they didn't commit for whatever reason..

To use a soccer view... it's like Chelsea playing York city... minors playing well and winning one match won't fix it, changing managers every 3 years won't fix it either. Getting a state of the art county ground won't also....

 back to basics with kids and schools.... proper coaching at clubs and schools with a plan to bring competitive games at all levels within all areas schools/colleges/clubs.... getting all the clubs coaches and schools to row in behind this is the first problem...

If we continue to do the same thing we'll continue to get the same results... keep bashing the people who put their names forward for managing then we won't get anyone half decent to take it on

Are you an apologist for the management or something?? You cannot defend their tactics, team selection or game management on this occasion, you simply cant. This isn't Chelsea vs York City - its Chelsea vs Sunderland - not expected to win but not expected to take such a hiding that the debate has been raised again about a two tier system  - that's how bad that defeat was!!!.

We've always said on here that the structures need to be in place (obvious) but here we are, years later and we have the same problem. Changing management is not ideal but, to borrow your analogy, we aren't talking about replacing an Alex Ferguson here. 3 years is enough for any man to make improvements - I think we can safely say we are deteriorating so time to get rid. That's the risk every manager of every football team in the country takes when he considers a job. People aren't putting their names forward due to the shoestring budget, lack of infrastructure, solid training base etc etc. Not because they get  a touch on here - Antrim must have one of the lowest expectation requirement of any job - all we ask is for improvement and seeing as we are at the bottom the only way is up!

Whats not attractive about the job?  No stadium, Belfast players don't enjoy travelling to Dunsilly, players have little pride in playing, best players don't want to play for the county, no money for top coaches, cant agree on a settled temporary county ground etc etc .......sure the advert writes itself!!

First stop is getting a man with a good intercounty CV. The hurlers were happy to recruit from Tipperary so whats stopping the footballers going further than a neighbouring county?? Time to throw the net  out a bit farther

Im not an apologist for the management, they know managers are judge on results, and mainly the league results as thats our level or just above it...

Expecting to come within 10 points of a div 1 team isnt being real, dying with your boots and and emptied the tank is ... We didnt get the game plan right because once they sussed it out they (like most quality teams) they over ran us, won possesion and broke quickly up field where they had players that can punish you..

To be able to brink on Lacey McBearty and the like shows you the strength in depth they have... One minute Murphy is plucking the ball out of the sky in his own 6 yard box and then setting up a defence splitting pass ...

Yes no doubt the managers will step down and we'll bring in new ones and hey, we will get the same results because the players havent changed, still taking them from committed group
