  My posts about Sunday's alleged Minor Football misbehaviour have been removed.
I can't understand why?  These allegations are more than just rumour and have every
right to be posted on here.

Listen , U 21 s,Minors and Development Squads are in utter chaos .
PO has been put in to oversee initially .Anybody who asks to be involved as a coach in Development Squads is accepted ,The Down Way.
Minor setup  a total joke with PO waiting in the wings to take over.

This year is a follow on from the disaster last year v Tyrone with the glove man on board now.
Now we are at the business end for the minors and not meaningless games in March Ulster League let's watch the results v Donegal on Saturday and Derry in championship.
The standards of behaviour and comments from them are maybe best suited in The Carnbane League.
Everything about Down Football has been so innovative recently , U21 s  F made a total mess of that but he
has the ear of the Boss , rumours circulating that he wants minors too....  PO won't like that .You couldn't make it up .

The silver lining has been seniors and these guys have been a credit and great ambassadors for Down Football , I'm sure they are embarrassed at what is happening down the ranks.
  So at least you finish up by something positive about Down Seniors. This talk about the Minors is really bugging you.What exactly is your issue?

Down team tonight was
Mark Reid Bryansford
Aaron Mc Donald Bryansford
Aaron Beattie Newry bosco
Aidan Fulcher kilcoo
Anthony Doherty Downpatrick
Rory Burns Castlewellan
Ruairi Wells Bryansford
Conor Devlin Bryansford
Joe Mc Kinney daragh Cross
Martin Devlin kilcoo
Cathal Foy Burren
Aaron Magee Warrenpoint
Pat Havern saval
Rory Mason loughisland
Conal Gallagher Newry Bosco

Four of the seven in defence from Bryansford and another who doesn't play for his club senior team enough said!

I wouldn't really pay much heed to the actual u21 competition run within the county.
Its a dud comp and played at a time of year when its hard for players to give a sh!te.
I was more thinking of the large % of players who play regular top tier football for their clubs or have shown pedigree at Ulster Colleges level beforehand.
Would have thought that the stronger/bigger clubs in Down would have decent 21s lining out for them regularly.

I think a lot of us in this county under estimate the talent coming through our underage. although we have not performed well at county standard this past while if we look at each club there are a number of quality young individuals who are all probably good enough to break into senior teams, but is it a case that some club senior managers are afraid to play a youngster over someone who has been around longer?

'ifyoure good enough youre old enough' ???

Seriously, if a lad hasn't made it onto his senior team at 21, then is there really much hope for him?  Many of the lads on the team last night I just would not know.  The management got the panel wrong in the first place leaving lads out and then when they went back to them (knowing they made a mistake) the lads told them where to go.  They must shoulder alot of the blame for not even getting the best panel together never mind the best team.  Dawson's horrors at county level continue.

Cory Quinn can't find a starting place in the mayobridge senior team at the minute and he's one of the hottest talents in the county.

Dawson tries to make it more about himself than about the players. Dropped the big names for 'not working hard enough'. Quinn was scoring for fun before he was dropped, apparently scored 1-7 in a challenge game 2 days before hand too, find it hard how Dawson could justify that no matter how hard the lad works, he's there to score.

Yes he would have been an addition to Wed night's flop but the young lad
has disciplinary issues. Sorting that out and then looking at his work rate and
obvious scoring threat will come.
   Wednesday night is just another episode of our ineptitude. Either McCorry took
the U21's or not. But once he said he wasn't taking them,the County Board should have made the U21
Management appointments.
The stuff about too many Byransford players is just wrong. All good young players but the problem was Dawson,he did a good enough job for Burren but he ruled by being a bully and the County Board knew that.
     We'll move onto Cusack  Park and hopefully our Seniors will  get promoted.

What a comeback yesterday , really getting a good feeling so far but concerned with lack of physical presence up front.
Rumours flying about minors in turmoil .
The set up is finished and ex senior manager is coming in to take over.PO was put back in to county to take over minors in few years but looks like he is in now ,a little earlier than planned.
Things are at an all time low , morale among the squad and confidence in the set up all but gone.

Did you not get picked by the minor management?? Because your talking absolute shite.
   Maybe it's a relation of his.. The only thing this lunatic would get picked for is the "funny farm". Go away Coutrney.

3 loughinisland and 4 bryansford tells it's own story
  Managers have different points of view. If Dawson had been the
Manager of the Minors in 2012-I could understand the fuss but these
are the players he thinks are up to it in 2015 at U21.

James McCartan had the best players available to him on his panels.
The notion that there were players destroying defences in Down week-in week-out for their clubs and being overlooked for county for some myseterious reason is ludicrous.
Take off the blue n white tinted spectacles ffs.
That would be the Gaelic Life Ulster Club Allstars would it?

Time will tell whether the new recruits can cut it at county senior level.
Lets hope they can. But some of the cheerleading and comments on here recently is laughable.
Let the Point enjoy their moment and the contribution their new messiah has made to it
A lot of begrudgery on here.  Quite poor form to a player/Club that has done Down proud. :-[

  Prediction for April 2015.  Phonecalls will be made or feelers put
out to those that can't commit just yet.

  I agree mostly with what Mourne Rover has said but what is Jim Mc Corry supposed to say
to "non star players" about committing fully if he is allowing the "star players" to half commit
at this stage?   Mind  you November is a bit early for all this bad news.

Yes Benny should never have been allowed to retire.
They should have maybe kidnapped a member of his family or threatened him with some other dastardly deed.
Wise yourself up.
  My God, apart from Brick's reply, this is al  a load  of crap !

 Does your Club complain or are you one of the elite?

 I agree to a certain point but they would not have seen
too many Div 2 or 3 players. There's bound to be someone or more
that will emerge from the trialling process from lower down
the Leagues. '91 was proof that there was talent  in the County apart
from Div1 players.
