Of the finals on next week, we can be fairly sure no opposing players will be half mugged by the opposition fans. Say something about the mentality of soccer supporters.

It does, loads of scumbags following those clubs in England.  The Ulster and Connacht finals will have fans entering the field next weekend to celebrate and nothing else. After routine victories Kerry and Dublin supporters will likely head home at the final whistle.

Who's to lose though , that's what we need to know!?

Feckin hell...wait till Derry get to the All-Ireland there'll be some scramble for tickets then. ;D

1993 scramble for final tickets was off the charts... Men still not speaking to each other over it. No county has a bigger hibernating support than us  ;D
Next Sunday is going to be a great day out for the county, cannot wait.

Massive win. Fair play, although a pitch invasion probably a bit much  ;D
oh hello it's the celebration police 🙄
it's passion, emotion, relief rolled into one. Anyone that has any connection to a team in any sport can see that.

110% (Derry man), enjoy it.

92 was a decent enough game, best Donegal played all year, no basketball like these days, you knew the worth of a defender as he had to mark one on one with no help.

Leaving the ’92 result aside, I remember it being a decent enough game. 
Though, from memory, I think the result hinged on two first half incidents.
One involving Tohill, which lead to him leaving the pitch injured.  Would need to watch the highlights back, but I think he went to volley the ball clear, but Boyle (?) was bending in to gather it, Tohill tried to stop, but still connected with the Donegal man, injuring himself in the process.
The other was Cunningham’s sending off, just before half time, for an attempted decapitation of McNicholl along the sideline, although in reality he wasn’t even close. Coleman played the spare man, but given the nature of the game, a more experience player should have been given that role. 
There was also some debate about whether Downey's goal was square ball or not.
Was that the day it pished...

The year before

The only Ulster Finals between the two sides -

Two were played in great conditions for football (’92 & ’11), one played in poor conditions (’98) and one played in horrendous conditions (’93).

Donegal 1-11 Derry 0-08

Derry 1-07 Donegal 0-08

Derry 0-08 Donegal 0-06

Donegal 0-14 Derry 1-09

So far in this campaign Donegal have posted scores of 1-16 & 2-16. Derry have put up 1-18 & 3-12.  But I’d suggest we might have a low scoring encounter, similar to the previous finals between the two sides.

Hoping that it’s not an omen, but looking back at the 2011 campaign. Derry scored 1-18 in their QF win over Fermanagh, and 3-14 in their demolition of Armagh. Unfortunately, in the build up to the Final, Eoin Bradley was injured at training (ACL, I think) and a huge scoring threat was taken away.

The teams from the 2011 final.  No one from Derry still involved. From Donegal, I think its just McGee, Murphy and McBrearty.

Donegal: P Durcan; F McGlynn, N McGee, P McGrath; A Thompson, K Lacey, K Cassidy; R Kavanagh, N Gallagher; M McHugh, M Hegarty, R Bradley; P McBrearty, M Murphy, C McFadden. Subs: M McElhinney for Kavanagh (31), D Molloy for McBrearty (54), D Walsh for Bradley (58).

Derry: D Devlin; S L McGoldrick, K McGuckin, D McBride; C Mullan, C Kielt, M Bateson; J Diver, M Friel; M Lynch, C O’Boyle, B McGoldrick; E Muldoon, J Kielt, C Gilligan. Subs: M Donaghy for Bateson (29), K McCloy for Mullan (45), G O’Kane for B McGoldrick (60), E McGuckin for Gilligan (60) PJ McCloskey for Muldoon (62).

Defensive football back then also - parking the bus.

You should do a Podcast Marty, I'd definitely listen

I think we are seeing Derry at their absolute best to be honest, I don't think there are any more levels to their game.  They are structured well but seem to lack any real top class individuals.
Shane McGuigan walks on to any team in Ireland.

McGuigan/Rogers/McKaigue/Doherty/McKinless get on any team in Ireland.

Glass not far off either!

Jesus SE Glass is on that list.

Maybe but I wouldn't say so yet.

I thought Kearns was better than him on Sunday. The Donegal game will be a big test as they have a very good midfield.

Kearns definitely out fielded Glass on occasions in the 2nd half, but Glass was by far the stand out midfielder on Sunday. His driving forward, covering, link play all top top level.

It's just brilliant to be in the final and heading down with a  chance of winning. Can't ask for more at this stage. We've the defenders to match up on paper, but anything can happen on the day etc

Still think Derry need more points on the scoreboard but they haven't conceded a goal yet and haven't looked likely either - which is a good sign.

21 points against Tyrone and Monaghan, you think Derry will need more than 21 points to win??

Derry v Monaghan  wasnt full house, a lot of gaps in seats.

Limrick V Clare must have had near 20K

The stand was sold out was it not? 14.5k in is what I heard

I'm sure the pitch invasion after beating Dublin in a meaningless league match seems a bit hollow now.

As meaningless as an Ulster man pretending to be be from Dublin? Change the record, tiresome got!

It depends how they cope with 14 men behind the ball. I don't know if Bonner is a good enough tactician to be able to navigate a way through that tbh. It will be very interesting to see.

Maybe Murphy will just bulldose through it!

Every team in the country has pretty much played with 14 men behind the ball for years, surely this is front and centre at training sessions as it is at club training sessions.. ..youd think this is a new phenomenon with some on here

Top class from Derry.

Completely dominated the first half forcing Monaghan I to shooting from poor positions.
Really purposeful in attack and looked like scoring from every attack.
Hopefully Loughlin isnt badly injured as he's been playing really well.

Benny Heron's best season in a Derry jersey.

Glass was awesome, Chrissy and Rogers locked the door.
Lynch did really well in goals. Even in the second half when monaghan were coming strong he just kept calm and did the simple things right.

But for me mckinless is a different level. His running, defending, tackling, attacking and his goal were as good as you'll see.

Gough was a total joke today in that second half in particular.

Brilliant win, brilliant buzz. Donegal are there to beat now.
That's another story.
We should have beat them last year nad we have their ex manager.
Could this be our year to finally get back to winning championships?

Good post tbrick. Another really enjoyable championship day out. The wains all buzzing on the way home too, wee bag of chips. You couldn't beat it and an Ulster Final to look forward to. The Athletic Grounds is a superb venue for football

Just watching the highlights of the North West 200. 196mph in wet / windy conditions, beggers belief. A rider, Glenn Irwin, was pole position for the 2nd race decided not to race due to the conditions. Said on dry days he is in control, on wet days he isn't, has 2 young kids and didn't want to risk it. Sensible

Was wondering would it be worth a punt in the likes of Luna?  Is it likely to rebound?

What is Luna and how much is a punt? £1000 to test the water?

A big grand!  ;D

If I was to say, invest the princely sum of £50 (I'm as far removed from a gambling man as you can get), who'd be a good bet?

Not financial advice lol but if you can stretch to about £65-£70 buy some ISO 20022 compliant coins. Maybe go with 1000 XDC, 150 XLM, 50 XRP and leave them til the end of 2022/start of 2023.
Other ISO 20022 compliant coins are Iota and Algorand.

Thanks Clar, will have a look (not that I have a feckin clue what I'm looking for right enough). Downloaded Trust Wallet, but through that app OK?

Haven't used Trust Wallet before but just downloaded it there to have a quick look. It supports XRP, XLM and Algorand but it appears to have a £50 minimum purchase per transaction? so if you are are only looking to spend £50 you are limited to picking 1 coin.

Thanks again. All double Dutch to me tbh! As BCB1says, I'll maybe hold onto the money too  ;D
