Does anyone else get the distinct feeling that some posters  will be all over this discussion thread like a bad rash the minute Antrim get beaten. A couple of good recent wins just dosent suit their agenda.

Andy came onboard when this squad was in absolute rags and is doing a very solid job about rebuilding it. Personally I couldn't give one toss what club a player is from, when he is honoured to be invited into the squad, puts in the sheer hard work, and takes pride in the jersey strongly enough to be a valuable member of the squad,  we should support them.

Yes it's a discussion board and all about opinions...but try and stay classy.

I've had a pop at plenty of management teams and will be consistent in that regard if and when our current set up goes stale/dressing room becomes lost, but in the interests of balance let's be able to give genuine credit when it is deserved.

And CB, please note that the vast majority on here don't give a fiddlers toss about how many medals people have. If they are along the line they will only be judged on results and even more important in any coaches book, performances.

Absolutely they are busting to,  dying to see Antrim lose to say i told you so.

To call a spade a spade Cargin were extremely lucky to get anything out of the Naomh Conall game last year. They just about stayed in it and then got lucky with the goal and won on pens. They were TURGID against Glen. No shot from play in 1st half, set up not to get hammered. You could argue "we only got beat by" but to any of us we know it may as well ha e been 30points, it was a non event

They've beat other teams in Antrim when the county is at a low ebb, that's it. Haven't made a mark in Ulster bar that penalty win last year. Cannot be compared in the same stratosphere as the St Galls team who went toe to toe with anyone and everyone.

I wish Cargin did win Ulster, i wish they improved our Countys standing, i wish they would throw off the shackles and have a real go in Ulster but fear age has caught up with their better players, the time for that was 5 or more years ago. Just because you win Antrim  when Antrim were at a low ebb does not guarantee all your players start for the County. Shivers can take a point but doesn't move....we  ALL need him to work on that to I prove our County's fare

Compared to the like of a Tomas McCann (who was an absolutely and utterly exceptional footballer for us and a certain starter) he doesn't compare. I'm disappointed he walked away but I appreciate he's young and it's balls not playing any football

The hyper sensitivity re the ex management is bizarre

Perhaps you will let us all know about your clubs Gold(en) years.....

And there's a bit more hyper sensitivity if evidence was needed.....the bad man said something I didn't like so I must have a dig at him about his club as it makes me feel better.

As a novice in this chat I am starting to see problems within the politics of clubs on this forum. We need to all build together and get this show back on the road, can I ask why is there no ex county footballers involved in underage setups? Every other county has this nailed on


Aaron Douglas
Sean mcgreevy
Tony Convery
John kelly
Owen Doherty

All involved , maybe more I donít know of

After tonight's game it's the end of the regular first round, bar the 2 outstanding games involving Aldergrove
Once that's sorted the 6/6 split will happen

Lads what's the story with Dunloy football
Now I know about all the hurling craic, fair enough, same year in year out
But 1 point in 11 games, from a team who only lost an intermediate final 3 years ago in the final minutes
20 point hammering tonight at home
AND, they're in senior championship this season

Id say after winning it last year a lot of boys have thought thats them achieved everything they realistically can in football and gonna concentrate on hurling. Cant really blame them, I wouldn't be surprised to see them turn it on in Senior champ when they've everyone back

Dunloy are playing with a team of dual players a load of them are actually on the county hurling panel also, so missing out for the hurling team as well, top teams would suffer missing out on that quality player, Dunloy have also...

The modern dual club is finding things hard, the league will always suffer
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea
