Derry / Re: Derry Club Football & Hurling
« on: February 13, 2018, 10:00:05 PM »
A squad of 45 named in the new minor squad. Very noticeable the amount from South Derry on it-33 from South Derry,12 from North Derry. This squad has been picked by a Donegal man and a Tyrone man so no biased opinions this time

No surprise in that, south derry has always been where the football strong hold is in the county, your stating the obvious, however I fully take your point that it has been selected by a Donegal man.
Why does it matter where in Derry they are from? So long as the best players are picked I couldn't care less if they are from Bellaghy or Magilligan.
I was just stating the facts. It was very obvious and really stood out to me.

Take a look at the grading of teams from u14 to senior. More South Derry than North Derry teams in Divison 1 at every age group. Meaning the teams from South Derry are the stronger teams, because they have the better player and obviously if we are picking a panel of the best players their is going to be more from South Derry?

it's the exact same in the senior panel announced this morning.
Having read this post,isn't it ironic that the county training facility is in in North Derry and our County pitch is in Derry city. It makes you wonder. They invest so much money in the city yet all we have as a county to show for it so far is Neil Forester.
I'm not from the city but that's a negative post. There is some good work going on in the city and coaching at underage level in the city clubs has improved greatly. 3 city players on the minor squad just announced. There is a great opportunity to improve our Derry teams through the city and it is only beginning to be realised in my opinion.

45 is a ridiculous number. Even with the change to u17 there are far too many 2001s in there. Paddy Campbell will look after his own. The county is bending over backwards to push his club on.
Ye what? Pushing his club so much that they allow another club to form in the same catchment area? Please stop talking cac.

I take it you dint know city too well. Steelstown is in shantallow(although they'd like not to be). Culmore is not in shantallow. Anyhow sure they suck the poor wee Ardmores of this world to death whether by design or otherwise. How many steelstown players pass clubs closer to them?. They have 35 of a panel at most ages and don't make many subs. It only deprives lads an opportunity. Plenty to go around. They let? Wise up its not a nazi state we run. I speaketh no Cac good sir.
Above is how the most progressive club in the city is viewed with jealousy by others - in the city. Steelstown rises above the rest and let the moaning jealousy begin. Some pitch though.

You sir. Haven't a clue.  Pm me and I'll put you straight on a lot of stuff you seem ignorant of, or else incapable of understanding.I'm beginning to believe you are in superman jammies sucking on a big do do. Celtic park for the record is some pitch. You are the only person I've ever known to say otherwise

Take your anti-city bias and ram it up your hole.

Too right Tickle.
Take your anti-Steelstown bias and stick it up your apostrophe!

Have you lost the plot? I never mentioned apostrophe. You still smarting from your lack of knowledge of grass roots facts. Do you even understand the word bias?

Pitch inspection done 15mins ago; game still on! Whats the Glenshane pass like??

Celtic Park.  Some pitch
What does one think now?

Best pitch in County . Nothing could withstand them showers which is what I intimated in my last post.  Wouldn't worry about the supporters. Our u12 hurlers made it to screen. No moaning either
it's 1 of the best pitches in the county. And it only so because nobody plays on it! Loup has a pitch equal to it. Ballinderry's pitch is close also. Ballinascreen has a great surface. Glen and Bellaghy have great facilities. That's just for starters so get off your high horse. We are missing a trick. To my knowledge,Glen,Bellaghy and Ballinascreen can all host county games. So why are we taking games to the city when we are playing so poorly in front of poor crowd's?

Were they playable today? Careful now I'm not long back up the road. Celtic park will usually  be best option in poor weather as it's best surface in the county. Serious chip on your shoulder. Imagine all i said was that it was some pitch. Big crowds are a thing of the past in a Derry for county games.  The lads from Malin have no issue going to  Ballybofey.  Maybe that's the difference in 2 counties. Less moaning out of them boys

Any thoughts on Sunday's team? A massive game Derry need 2 points but more than that we need a positive performance. Unfortunately I don't expect a big crowd. We are missing a trick,if these games were played in club pitches in south Derry ie. Glen/Bellaghy we'd get bigger more vocal crowds who'd actually act as the 16th man
Team is what it is with who is on the panel. I think we actually need the points more than a performance in this one but at the same time if we perform the points should follow. Why are these people who would travel to Glen not traveling to Celtic Park? Do people from Gweedore complain as much about going to Ballybofey?
11 out of the starting 15 players on Sunday are from south derry. Come championship time there will be 1 or 2 more from south derry starting on the team. The best players are from south derry. The best teams are from south derry. The biggest supporters are from south derry. The previous were all "facts".  So why,at the very least don't we play our national league games in south derry. Then,the team would get more support and play with extra pride whilst playing in front of big crowd.

Pile of balls hI.  So why when we play away and south derry wans have shorter distance to travel is it still mostly city and North Derry men in crowd. This south derry hype.  Fake news. Its not south armagh we are talking about here. Living in the 70s
