Title: Re: Ulster Club SFC 2018
Post by: brokencrossbar1 on October 04, 2018, 09:58:06 AM
Honestly think it will be the most keenly contested one in years and also one of the closest. Everyone will fancy their chances. The Monaghan champs wonít fancy Derrygonnelly either as the Fermanagh men have a few weeks to prepare and have been there for the last 3-4 years and feel they left a chance behind them last year. If we are lucky to beat Cullyhanna then we have a hard final and we are a very young team who are probably about 2 years from the breakthrough so this year is a bonus

Kilcoo have literally half their starting XV out of commission at the moment. If they win Down this year it will probably be one of their best achievements of their seven in a row.

Scotstowns to lose. Most experienced team it it, sprinkled with stars, the winners between them and Derrygonnelly have a great chance, as have Burren with their pedigree. Ifnwe beat Ballymacnab, which is a big if given our injuries, then we could be there or thereabouts but we are still very young. 6 of the likely starting team this Sunday are u21 with another 2-3 under 24. Kids really. I'd say if we win armagh we will be happy at that.

You also predicted Cross would lose to both the harps and Cullyhanna. They will be one of the favourites for ulster and it would be a big shock if they don't win Armagh at this stage.

I can just see Joe Brollys articles in the next few months already when Cross win Ulster and how theyíve saved football. Now Slaughtneil are off the scene you boys will be back as his flavour of the month.

Scotstown win through to meet Burren, scoreline 2-17 to 1-11. After an even first half, they pulled ahead by 2 or 3 points but Derrygonnelly kept tabs and Scotstown didn't pile on the scores until the last minutes when they scored their 2 goals.

Some difference in the outright betting between Boyles and Powers.

Boyles:

Gweedore 11/4
Cross 10/3
Coleraine 6/1
Coalisland 7/1
Burren 8/1
Castlerahan 25/1

Scotstown 10/3
Gweedore 9/2
Coleraine 9/2
Burren 11/2

No and no. You'll have to get off your lazy arse Benny and cheer on your fellow county men!  Armagh TV only have rights for Armagh club games.

Coalisland won't be an easy touch and have a good side.  Tyrone teams are rarely beaten easy in Ulster and we are most vulnerable in the early stages of any competition, we only kick on as we get closer to the finals and that's an absolute fact not me being a cute hoor.

You can knock a few years off that. Underplaying your chances and now talking your players up as older than they are!

Ach Iím getting older....itís hard for me to work our whoís who never mind what age they are 😂

Cross best priced 1/2 on oddschecker, Coalisland best priced at 5/2. Attractive odds for Coalisland but hard to know how good Cross really are tbh, it's a new side pretty much. Will likely head over to it, should be a huge crowd - any sign of TG4 saving me a trip?
Or Armagh tv?

No and no. You'll have to get off your lazy arse Benny and cheer on your fellow county men!  Armagh TV only have rights for Armagh club games.

Coalisland won't be an easy touch and have a good side.  Tyrone teams are rarely beaten easy in Ulster and we are most vulnerable in the early stages of any competition, we only kick on as we get closer to the finals and that's an absolute fact not me being a cute hoor.

Having predicted Cross to lose both the Armagh quarter final and semi final and talking down their chances in the final I sense that despite trying you are actually struggling to give the opposition a chance in this one. Cross have to be favourites here with some great young players. Coalisland will be defensive and make life difficult and there could well be a flash point or two. The biggest problem for Cross will be their forwards getting much less space than in Armagh championship. I still think they have better players than Coalisland and will pull through by 4/5.

Coalisland bucked the trend in Tyrone though, really not that defensive. The individuals in their defense are excellent though, which is where there strength lies.
Cross by 2.

Very much a game of unknown in my opinion. Coalisland here for the first time in a long time. We have a few who have been there before but theres still a fair smattering of young ones. I know why we are favoured but its not a straight forward case in my opinion. Favorite by reputation more than anything. I still believe Gweedore will come from out side of the draw and the winners of burren and scotstown from the other side with the winners from the other side winning it outright

For all the talk of the Crossmaglen  O'Neill's I reckon Coalisland should be more concerned with trying to keep Kyle Carragher tied up, he's been the main dangerman imo. I also really cant see why Cross are such big favourites, still would be timid enough backing against them tbh.

Coalisland lack of cool heads late on cost them. At 10-9 down they had a chance of easy point or work a 50/50 goal. Blasted wide going for point. Then two basic soloing errors when breaking after that ruined both moves. Aaron Kernan really stepped up those last 10 mins.

This kind of carryon is ridiculous, not just because it's absolutely daft, but psychologically it sends a very negative message from management (there's no way these boys were doing this of their on volition) to players.

Cross are some outfit. 6 AI's and they look like they are rising again! Winning never gets old. BCB1, by reading some posts on here, you've won a couple yourself, I'd say very little comes close to that feeling.

Absolutely directed. The young lads were behind the Cross goals in the first half and then in the second. There was a young lad wearing a grey and red half zip and he could be clearly seen. There were two men, one wearing a blue hat and a Coalisland rain jacket. It stinks of gamesmanship of the highest order and teaching a 12-13 year old that this is how you win. If this is what Damien O Hagan feels he needs to employ then they get what they deserve.

Thereís nothing beats winning JoG2 but this team has a lot to do to get there yet. They can and tonight will have taught them a huge lesson but the next game will be another level. I am lucky in that I have a few medals but these young lads need to step up to a new level as Autumn football is not for the feint hearted!!

Iím no Cross fan, but those Tyrone lads would sicken you with their antics. Didnít see what number 4 was sent off for but the Coalisland number 5 should have went as well in the second half, Rian OíNeill put him over the sideline with a hard and fair hit, and the number 5 got up and spat in the Cross physioís face. Hanrattyís second yellow looked very harsh to me although I was at the far end. Have to say, Rian OíNeill is a serious footballer but a special mention has to go to Aaron Kernan, sublime as ever and still going as fast in the 60th minute as the 1st, class act.

Rian OíNeill will get the plaudits and rightly so but it was a big test for Cross tonight and they came through it. They wonít rack up 24 points in an Ulster club cship match but grinding out a victory tonight will be worth its weight in gold to them. Still think there are some weaknesses in this Cross team but with the 2 OíNeills at the top of their game they have a good chance of winning Ulster.

Disgusting behavior from the Coalisland man spitting into the Cross Physioís face if true.

The floodlit games in Armagh generate a great atmosphere, hope the final is a late Saturday evening throw in.

Whatever about no 5, I was told from a very reliable source that thatís what 4 got it for. It was a very strange one indeed as there was no one on the ground and the was no argument so no one got struck. The ref went to his umpires and straight away produced a red card so it must have been serious. I said it to someone after the game and they said straight away that he was sent off for spitting. It happened to me many years ago against a Tyrone team so I know how disgusting it it is to be on the end of it.

I canít believe the coalisland nr 5 is playing for Tyrone. Canít kick, toe tap, catch ball or take a tackle. Saying that, in his time with mickey Harte he has picked up other traits - pulling, spitting, non stop verbals and general all round cheating. A sc**bag. He should be a regular in mickeyís teams for years to come. He should look at his county colleague (hampsey) who plays the game how it should be played.

Regarding the balls coming onto the pitch, Iím pretty sure peter Donnelly (as Tyroneís coach) was sent to the stand in ballybofey this year for doing exactly that. Time for peter to grow up (and retire).

Cross management should have had hanratty off as soon as coalisland went down to 13 men. He was an accident waiting to happen. Rian OíNeillís class was probably the difference between the teams.

Jesus thatís disappointing if true, and Iím not doubting it. Look we all play the game on the edge. A tackle here, a hit there, I hate trash talk and think itís a blight. But the thing is itís now part of the game at all levels. I hate feigning injury too. I wish across the board shot like this stopped as the reality is that the team who has the better players and focuses mostly on the football generally wins competitions. Dark Arts may win the odd game but football wins championships. I feel Coalisland focused too much on trying to disrupt us rather than trying to win the game.

Scotstown will win today. They have too much fire power and in Beggan they have a serious weapon from kick outs and free kicks.

Whatever you think. I know none of our players spat on anyone last night nor did we have grown men standing behind the nets throwing balls into the field to stop kick outs. Whatever about being physically on the edge, and letís face it none of the sending  offs for either teams were for bad tackles.  As someone who has been involved in coaching and playing within the club for over 30 years I can categorically state that I have never been involved in anything like that in terms of encouragement or encouraging that. 

Coalisland probably seen the young cross ones throwing the ball onto the field before the Ballymacnab kick outs in the Armagh final. Well directed by adult supervision also.

Didnít happen

Agreed.

Definitely didnít happen. Iíll tell you something about the Cross management. Of all the people who would be involved in coaching or playing they would be ones who would be beyond reproach in terms of their approach and attitude.

Never a red. But Castlerahan were brilliant second half. Went man to man with Goalkeeper as a corner back. Eoghan Rua took 20 minutes to score in 2nd half.

Scotstown should have won by a cricket score after completely dominating for 40 minutes but allowed Burren back to within a point of them and it looked as though Burren had the momentum then.

Burren kick out strategy was their undoing but I feel as though Scotstown were still deserving winners. Their defence will be their Achilles heel when it comes to actually winning Ulster. Coleraine v Scotstown could go either way.

Were you at the game?  I was listening to it and the penalty shout near the end seemed pretty clear cut according to the radio. Scotstown has 15-16 wides....that wonít happen again I reckon. Gweedore also seemed pretty comfortable in the first half and should have ripped Cargin out completely. Nearly wish they had as Cargins comeback will make sure that Gweedore are definitely focused for the semi!!!  No disrespect to Coleraine but Scotstown will win that one and will be favourites for the final.

Our game is interesting as Gweedore are in complete virgin territory and have a really good team. In many respects for half our team they are in new waters as well. Both teams have a sprinkling of solid experienced players so itís who of the lesser can adapt to the experience of a playing on Ulster that will be key. It wonít be won by the McGees or Cassidy on one side or Aaron Kernan or Johnny Hanratty for us but but which first timers settle best. It will be a tough one to call but I reckon Gweedore will be slight favourites

Stonewall. Burren then turned the ball over cleanly on the 45 as Scotstown broke from that and a free was somehow given against them. Scotstown totally dominated almost the whole opening 40 minutes though. Controversy with one of the points as one umpire signalled a wide and the other signalled a point!

Tough one to win but thatís what itís all about. The ref had his hands full. Each sending off was deserved. 2 bookings for 3 and each of them were bookings. Coalisland had no 4 sent off for a straight red for spitting on our physios face. They also had adults deliberately throwing the ball onto the field from behind the goals. They were getting the kids to get the balls and were holding them to the next lockout. Deliberately doing it. You reap what you sow

Cross are bad, but theres a line they donít cross (pardon the pun) Coalisland crossed that last night.

Yes and it was a definite penalty.

Donít kid yourself, Cross will be firm favourites purely on reputation alone, they are favourites to win Ulster and third favourites to win the All Ireland.

 The beginnings of Burren's comeback coincided with Kieran Hughes' black card. I'd hazard a guess that Kieran deserved it :)
Northern Sound hardly mentioned the penalty claim, though had Burren been awarded the penalty they still would have had to beat Beggan and his record of saving penalties in club championship football is exceptionally good. Nudie Hughes didn't make it for the commentary because of illness, I hope nothing's amiss.

i was at it too and wasn't sure about the penalty. Ref was in a perfect position to be fair. Maybe he charged into him.

Having said that Scotstown got out of jail. There were far better but had a serious number of 1st half wides. Some of them were really bad wides too. If they can fix their shooting they'll be hard to beat

Was behind the nets on Saturday night and the young kid was being actively encouraged by his Da to throw the balls back on just before the Cross kickout.
When a steward came over the Da took out his phone and started recording the steward. At half time the kid took a black kit bag full of balls down to the other end and the Da followed.
Petey Donnelly is just a superb keeper. The Cross keeper is not.
Young ONeill hit a point in second half and it must have started out 10/15 yards wide but he judged the wind to perfection.
Our latest All Star's antics were an embarassment.
The Island will know this was won they could have won if they had just played some football.

Tattyreagh hammered St Peters by 1 point. Far better team. Intermediate football in Armagh must be poor if this is the best they have.

On Sunday Scotstown should have been home and hosed but in the end were hanging on for dear life. Strange game.
From where I was it looked a penalty but ref obviously had a better view.
Beggan was like an outfield player at times and his place kicking was fantastic but he seems to love the attention. Would do well to watch back the AISF to keep his feet on the ground

Donnelly is a very good keeper and adds a real dimension to the Coalisland team. Our keeper is only aged 19 so Iíd give him a bit of time Taylor. He actually is a really good keeper and will grow into a much better one. He had one of his weaker games the other night but itís his championship debut season. Heís only conceded 4 goals in 7 games so heís doing ok.

He did look like a young gassun BC and you would know him better than me but he looked dodgy under the high ball and many of his kick outs were poor. The ball constantly being thrown on didnt help him though. And the Cross players were visibly pissed as they were driving the balls back towards the crowd when they were thrown on.

Sorry - All Star nominee and nominated for YPOTY was the player with the behavioural problems. If he had just played ball he could have got them across the line.

Hampsey was solid and was suprised they didnt move him to see if he could have had a bigger influence on the game

Kickouts worked better in the Armagh final, but were less good on Saturday Cullyhanna and  Ballymacnab were good opposition for Cross in Armagh.

Taylor, my attempt at humour clearly went over your head.  In fairness the record of Armagh teams, in the last 15 years, outside of Cross has been abysmal.  Blackwater the only team to win an Ulster Junior Club.  No club from Armagh has won the intermediate!

Tyrone are the opposite.  Very poor record at Senior Ulster Club level but strong at intermediate and junior.  Tells me that they have a more even spread of ability across the three tiers.  But also, with a wider spread of teams coming out of Senior Tyrone Championship, and no-one dominating, Tyrone teams don't don't get the benefit of building experience at Ulster level and building towards it in the way a dominant team can.

Any word on venues for semi finals?

A double header in Omagh would be ideal

That would be ideal but the reality is that 2 senior games on a single pitch at this time of year is a lottery.

Of the last four teams that won the Armagh Championship outside of Cross:
Maghery got to the Ulster Club Semi, but were well beaten by Kilcoo
Harps were beaten by a goal by Derrygonnelly
Pearse Ogs narrowly beaten by St Gall's (who went on to win the All Ireland) -
Mullabawn won Ulster  ;)

So outside of Cross they have won 1 game in the last 20 years.
Ok so
In the last 22 years, half of the Ulster titles at senior level have went to cross. Rest of ulster must be shite, particularly Tyrone. Even Antrim clubs have a better record

Omagh would be lucky to hold one game at this time of year.

If the two games are scheduled for the same time then loss of revenue shouldnt be an issue as fans can only attend one of them anyway.

Couldnt actually think of a suitable venue that would be fair for all 4 teams in any case

Milltown, what is the craic with Cargin. They got walloped by killyclogher last year and seemed to lie down (at least until late on) against gweedore yesterday.

They would appear to have a sprinkling of quality footballers and always have a big name manager.

Have they no interest in competing in Ulster or are they just crap?

Thereís a couple Cargin men on here better placed to tell you, but they put so much into winning Antrim that they have peaked come the final and have nowt left for the riggers of Ulster..

quality players no doubt but the longer it continues for them the harder it will be to win a game in Ulster..

Pedigree helps and weíd previous managers with positive runs in Ulster, players had parents also who were involved in Ulster winning campaigns..

They need to gamble on winning Antrim without peaking too early, our lads never trained hard till June so were fresh and fitter come October November time..

Cargin have won a lot of leagues 7/8 championships they are a very good team, just poor in Ulster

Beggan was like an outfield player at times and his place kicking was fantastic but he seems to love the attention. Would do well to watch back the AISF to keep his feet on the ground
Where do get off on Beggan seems to love the attention? and that he needs to keep his feet on the ground?  You assume nonsense.


He loves the attention surely. He was running up and down the field like a blue arsed fly yesterday. No call for it at all.
Surely?? Don't call him surely.
Anyway, what the fck would you know about what he loves?

That's his game at club level ..... surely. I should know as he single handedly dragged Scotstown from certain defeat to eventual victory against my club in a county semi final with his forays upfield in the last 1/4.
It's not about attention.

Exactly my point, they could not afford to not prepare as they did, and Cargin didnít have a full deck of players all season, Cassidy can only use whatís at his disposal therealdonald..

Cargin lads are aging like our lads, not too many miles left on the clock so winning Antrim is their primary focus.

Cargin are just unlucky they came up against a good Galls team over the years, they could have had a better run in Ulster had they dominated Antrim. Fortunately for us they didnít!

Some mighty long range kicking for points in the closing from the O Neill brothers. A joy to watch. Fine strikers of a ball

Burren has a massive  call for a penalty at the end turned down. Free all day if that foul was committed anywhere else on pitch

Cassidy calling shots up from for Gweedore. If Odhran MacNiallias Is back the Cross game should be some battle

The 4 goals in 7 games probably more to do with the quality of opposition you have faced so far
Bullshit.  You obviously weren't at the county final to see the standard of forward play Cross had to encounter there.  They didn't have it all their own way throughout the Armagh championship.

Absolutely. His kick outs have been excellent all year. Heís a young lad playing on his first Ulster match after replacing one of the next keepers in the country of the last 20 years,  so heís doing alright. Ballymacnab and Cullyhanna would have given Coalisland just as much as we did on Saturday and to suggest that the quality isnít in armagh is ignorance of the facts

The performance in Ulster of Armagh clubs (other than Cross) wouldnt back this statement up

This has to be without doubt one of the most stupid things I've ever read.
There only were 2 other clubs from Armagh who played in the Ulster club championship in the last 20 years!!
Just for good measure, before Cross started winning Ulster club titles for fun, the previous champions were......Mullaghbawn.
Not counting Cross, Armagh clubs have won 4 Ulster titles, 4 times as many as Donegal and twice as many as Tyrone

I donít think it is stupid at all.

Armagh clubs have a fairly dismal record in club competition outside of Cross. Take Cross out of the equation and only An Port Mor have won a provincial title since the 3 grades became operational at provincial level. I canít recall too many other clubs even getting to finals, Culloville made the intermediate final one year if memory serves me right but not too many others. Letís not pretend it has been anything other than disappointing.

By all accounts it was, I was having a date night with the wife! Watched it all happen on Twitter, was a horrible night, but for the Cargin and SW support it was a great game!! So the question is why canít Cargin replicate that in Ulster?
