Paddy Power have Sarsfields priced up at 1/2 against Lavey who are 7/4. Surely far too short a price. I actually thought Lavey would have been slight favourites

I'll have some of that thanks very much

Kerry were outstanding on the day, everything seemed to work for them.  Despite the scoreline they still left 2 or 3 goal opportunities behind them.  If the game was played another 10 times, I wouldn’t be surprised if Kerry won all 10.
With 11mins played Derry had the momentum after score 3points on the bounce to leave a single point between the sides.
10mins later and there is 11 points between the sides.  Clifford’s second goal where he had 2/3 men hanging off him yet still managed to score a goal.  The third goal.. Clifford was being forced away from the goals by good defence, but still he managed to pick out the runner and it was game over.
Derry could have played more defensively, they could’ve had 5 sweepers, they could have double marked Clifford.  All it would have done was kept the scoreline down.  We still wouldn’t have won it.  And the comments would be about Derry ruining the game and having a go at the tactics.
The thing that stood out for me was the speed of the Kerry players. There was a couple of things that stood out.  One of the Kerry players soloing up the pitch was moving away from the defender trying to chase him.  When it happened the other way around, the Derry players were easily caught.  On the 4th goal from the other Clifford, his run was being tracked even though he was going at a decent pace, but then he quicken for 5/10yrds to completely destroy his man.

Regardless of the result.  In the last 3 years Derry have won 2 Ulster minor titles and played in an All Ireland final.  Which for a county like Derry is a decent return. 
On the Coleraine lads, would you rather the chance of winning a prestigious All-Ireland Club title or an Intermediate county title?
On the exiles, anyone who wants to play for Derry should be given the opportunity to impress the new management.

It was actually junior. I don't blame the lads for playing in the sevens. Because they won Ulster junior two years ago they were unable to progress to Ulster junior this year. The final against na magha was pointless. Win or lose na magha would progress to Ulster. If it was an intermediate or senior championship match the boys most definitely would have played.

All the best to na magha lavey and slaughtneil in Ulster.

If you were one of those young lads not in the  elite athletic group in Coleraine surely you would feel badly let down though.  At the end of the day The Kilmacuds is a 7s competition for clubs who have been knocked out of their own championships and want a piss up in Dublin.  Don't think they would have been there had screen not beat them.

The dates for championship were set months ago. If eoghan rua wanted to play intermediate they shouldn't have finished last in the league.

I can't speak for all the lads who played but I know most of them would not have seen that as a championship final. It was seen more of a punishment for coming last in the league-  a system which unfortunately for eoghan rua does not favour a dual club with a very small selection of players to choose from and who struggle to field while football is still ongoing.

Eoghan rua are in an unfavourable position for the next few years in hurling. They have nothing to play for. Surely this system needs rethought?

60% of hurlers in Derry are dual. I dont understand the comment about eoghan rua having nothing to aim for. Surely they could win Derry and Ulster intermediate ?

Sarsfields were a joy to watch, played some fantastic hurling and on a better dryer surface can only play better. Surely they will go on and win Ulster.
Can't see them being beat in Ulster, they link up so well and really know how to play to their strengths. Always exiting to watch, I hope the senior final is a better spectacle than last year anyway, it being the main event an' all.

Lavey will be no push overs

Should senior players who excluded themselves from the panel this year as a result of not liking the manager be allowed back next year?

Absolutely not.

You play for the shirt and county no matter what the situation.

Too many prima donnas in this county

So what's the predictions for the games. Who will be crowned intermediate and Junior champions.
I've already went for Sarsfields by 3 and Glenarm by 6. Looking forward to 2 good games.

6 for Glenarm? That's a bold prediction

Be bad news for gorts if they couldn't win Junior

Derry to win by 3. Big issues in defending middle channel but I have a feeling they will have addressed it.

Derry welcomes it's newest club.  Culmore Cú Chullains
And does Derry City welcome it as well?

Those with foresight do.

The club does not eat in to Steelstown's player base?
Is the spelling not Cú Chulainn, by the way?
They also seem to have a misspelling on their crest which should read "An Chúil Mhór" not "An Chúil Mhóir".

Not overly sure on spelling. Chu  is genitive of cu. But Cullan is in genitive also. So there is a rule I think where the middle noun remains in the nominative. I think an chuil mhóir is correct. An adjective in the genitive. But not an expert so ....

Anyhow steelstown isn't in Culmore, it's in Shantallow . They take pkayers from every other clubs catchment area within city out as far as Ardmore. They have 1000 members (not playing obviously) and can't accommodate all the players they have at u14-minor. I know they challenged it in papers but don't think many of the grassroots agreed with the view .  Steelstown will continue to grow as they are the most prestigious club in city. They should welcome this as an opportunity to grow football in city. Btw I'm a supporter but not a member of steelstown .
Your honesty on the language is appreciated. "Cú Chulainn" is correct - note one l and nx2. "An Chúil Mhór" is correct, no need for the adjective to be in the genitive case. Anyhow, the genitive is "... na Cúile Móire". Why can a new club not ask for advice re spelling? With regard to players, is Hollybush PS, Culmore, not one of the main feeder schools for Steelstown GAC?  Steelstown is in Shantallow? Well then Ballinderry is in Coagh!

We will be boring folk on here with this stuff but now that we are on the subject here are a few others which I always thought could be incorrect. Should Doire Colmcille not be Doire Cholmcille.? Baile Stíl doesn't look correct either. Would it not be something like Baile an Stialliagh or na Stiallach? I believe it comes from the family surname Steele(planters). Also should their pitch name not be Páirc Bhríde not Páirc Bríd?
Im sure ulster council have someone looking after this, it used to be Donal McAnallen I think.

I think hollybush is a big feeder school for Steelstown but they provide children to other clubs also. Fantastic staff there who are very supportive of GAA.  But it is good bit away from their pitch compared to steelstown and lenamore primaries. Steelstown is a couple 100 metres from shantallow but it's 3 or 4 miles from culmore. Anyhow the point is, there are plenty of wains for both clubs and it would take 10 years at least for this new club to get going well. Steelstown have a full time primary school coach and are well established they shouldn't be worried. They will continue to grow and will be back at senior in near future hopefully

Good result for the lads yesterday always had that bit too much for Bellaghy.

Have no idea what any of the red cards were for and thought 2 of them were actually blacks.

Will need a better performance for next round though we should have put them away much earlier but the result is the main thing. Be interesting to hear tfals views probably the ref or Screen's dirt that won the game for us  ;D

My views Screenexile Too bad teams but championship statistics as they stand
Wolfe Tones 21 Draperstown ONE 😂😂😂😂😂.  You are a disgrace of a club and tad size of your parish.
Another boar fest to endure with you and Coleraine coming up.
We were glad you had no hurling sticks with you and nobody got broken legs.
And just to say Screenexile , we will a championship before you add to your glorious one in a row 😂😂😂

Pig ignorance as usual.
