I believe the Saffron vision county board have upped the professional levels especially with the business forum but we have been so far behind for so long that we need lots of initiatives and support. I know of 2 Belfast clubs who can't get any Stormont or Croke Park funds to assist with 2nd pitches. Surely Croke Park needs to contribute to clubs with plans to develop facilities which will utimatley be owned by the GAA anyway?

We need stormont support and Croke support way and above Gaelfast £200k a year! Still a free state attitude in Croke towards the North imo with lip service the order of the day

having watched Monaghan Tyrone I'm very envious of those counties and would love to be in croke one day cheering on the saffrons

Anyone any reasons to hope we will be? any greenshoots out there to get excited about?

Casement dormant / Gaelfast not yet started are both a decade away from from bearing fruit ::)

If it is a fruitless protest you want, you might consider having it at the door of those responsible for the clusterfuck. Market St, Armagh.
Just accept casement is going nowhere then?

anyone else get cross when driving by Casement? Any word of a timeline for starting work? I fear not

While residents have rights what about the kids who are missing out on playing their games in a quality setting? Should we mobilise kids from each club to peacefully protest outside casement highlighting their right to play is being hampered and then up to Stormont to protest to the Civil servants up there?

The loss of Casement is not just about a county ground but a ground in which lots of kids matches have been played over the years

The city are going to clean up again. Football is dead out in the country  ;)

I didnít want to say that. Cargin have the edge though over the SW teams still, seem to crap themselves when they meet Cargin
It is almost a given that the Milltown Blues will regain the senior title this year.
Sure they have impressed all year in the league, and hammered Cargin at Toome in the process.
Have taken the very generous 4/1... ;)
dont see the championship draw or dates on county web....

Fair to say we all hope this works for Belfast/Antrim
However £200k a year with £60k going to the overall manager leaves £140k a year. No doubt pitch hire and equipment will be required. This doesn't leave a lot for coaches does it?
While this is welcome it feels a bit like a Croke showing they are doing something as much as anything

Did Paul Donnelly of St Pauls get this Regeneration managerial role?
Yes indeed and good initial article in Irish News and has a really good CV.
I remember when Gaelfast was announced there was talk of a gauntlet being thrown down to the clubs and I'm glad he put that right in the article that there were no gauntlets to be thrown down to anyone but rather the clubs are to be supported. Looking forward to more of his plan in tomorrow's edition - Adh Mor Paul

Just had a look at the now split league tables and I see anyone could have predicted the top 5 clubs and PG1 have joined them. I thought it would have been Rossa and Aghagallon challenging the big 5 as I see it but not so...

In Div 2 Aldergrove and St Brigids at the top is no surprise but the Gorts right up there is a bit of a surprise - wonder what's working for them..... St Pauls unexpectingly struggling

I love the 12th July!

Did any suspensions ever come out of the PG1 v St Johns match earlier in the year when the crowd and the players had a go at each other?????

Pictures or videos or it didnít happen

Referee allegedly seen nothing but worried about his safety??? Players & Mentors seen nothing??? Video (What video????) Independent witness yes, allegedly gave full verbal report but wouldn't put it in writing, not good Big A if that is true  :-X no where to go, id say well played both sides.... job well done
so massive row and nobody punished / not good in the long run or what!

Looks like most posters on here think itís back to st galls and cargin this year yet St. Johnís and the lamhs beat them in the championship last year and were the finalists. Are these two teams not getting enough credit for last year?

Friday, Wed and another Friday?

Would you prefer them match and two hard training sessions and then another match? Some people are hard too please! Players prefer games to training? If youíd played a bit, youíd agree  ;)
its certainly suiting st galls anyway! Whatís the difference with them this year?

Leagues are playing, championships are for winning. Hopefully we donít become Cargin  ;)
do u think the lamhs winning it last year was a one off? They seem to be having an average league campaign

Will Big Marty J feature for Kickams this year ?
no idea but any thoughts on why Creggan don't seem to reproduce their league form in the championship? too much emphasis on league maybe?
That would be right could be cargin ever game in the league, but bottle it come the championship always seem to run out of gas- to many sessions from madden maybe £?
Id say the paid manager is a big part of it as he has  to justify his pay week in week out. Creggan must have paid some money on managers in the last 10 years. Putting it into their juveniles would be a better spend

Have you been around Creggan recently?
I have indeed and impressive set up just debating why with all their resources they donít look any closer to a senior championship. Maybe one of their own could motivate their senior team better after ten years of hired hands...
