Midfield soft or not, all three goals were defensive errors. It is not a coincidence.

Moreno x 2 plus shocking marking from a corner in the last minute. Unforgivable stuff.

Moreno actually at fault 4 times for 2 goals. Give away the free kick, then got caught out (albeit zonal marking) for a near post header. Poor touch from Coutinho's knock down followed by a trip for the pen.

Defensive errors and zonal marking were the fault for the three goals. Midfield don't make the defence make mistakes so to speak, and it is a very common pattern. So yes midfield may have been overrun but the root of the problem is basic defending. Who leaves a man unmarked 10 yards out in the last minute?? Mental. Absolutely mental.

not be classed more a slight touch to an opponents football boot, who had a good think and then decided to throw himself to the turf like a big blouse, than a trip? Stupid by Moreno though to give the player the opportunity to dive, sorry, go to ground.

The Liverpool midfield is incredibly soft centred

As yellow a 2nd half as I've seen (didn't see the first half in fairness). Too many players don't like it when the going gets tough

Hes just a jealous west brit

Like it or not if you are born in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland you are a subject of Elizabeth the Second whereas in the Republic you would be a citizen.

Don't be too upset. You are in good company

No you're not.  Technically I'm both a British and Irish citizen, though in my day to day life I choose to identify as Irish.  Ironically one of the qualifications to be one of the few "British subjects" still around is to be born in the 26 counties before 1949, so your Da or Granda might be a British subject, but very few others are.  The "subject" designation was done away with in 1983 and cannot be passed on.

I've that clown on ignore but I'm glad that, on this occasion, the quote function allowed me to see him being made a fool of yet again.   ;D

Reminded me of Kurt Russell owning Billy Bob in the saloon scene in Tombstone. Very satisying  :D

Canelo will be ringside for the Frampton fight this weekend

http://mtkglobal.com/mtk-global/mexican-superstar-canelo-set-ringside-frampton-reborn-fight-card/


Three-time Olympian Paddy Barnes also features on the card as he fights for the vacant WBO inter-continental flyweight title.
The Belfast native plans on delivering an exciting performance to make sure he isnt upstaged by the famous redhead at ringside.

Im not happy at all about it to be honest, laughed Barnes. Im meant to be the most famous ginger at this show! Canelo better be cheering on one of his own when Im fighting.  ;D

Has Michael ONeill signed that Scotland contract as yet....? ???

Can he cross the ball past the first defender? Successfully waltz past a winger out of defence? Perform a basic triangle of passes with team mates to get out of trouble, create space? Etc etc.. If so, get him on!

I can remember in 2008 3 derry teams where in all finals.

On another note anyone know what games will be played before the Ulster Championship matches?
U-17s are played in april and the seniors in May

who were the Intermediate / Junior finalists that year RnB?

__________________________________________________________________________


The draw for next year's Ulster minor football championship (U17) took place tonight.

Under the new fixture calander the championship gets undeway in April and is separate from the senior championship.

In the preliminary round Derry play Monaghan on Saturday 21 April, with the winners progressing to a quarter-final against Cavan.

The quarter-finals on the A side of the draw are Antrim v Fermanagh and Donegal v Tyrone, with the winners of both games meeting in the semi-final.

On the other side of the draw Down play Armagh with the winner of that tie meeting Derry/Monaghan/Cavan in the last four.

The quarter-finals are fixed for Saturday 28 April.

All games must be concluded on the day with no replays. If two periods of extra time can't separate teams on the day, a free taking competition will decide the winner.


Ballinderry Greenlough and Lissan

Marty Carey captained Greenlough in the final. He is playing for John Mitchels in Liverpool now.

Where did it all go wrong Marty?

There's certain players that you really look forward to seeing in the flesh, players that are exciting and can near win a game on their own, or at least lift their team and drive them on,  the likes of Stevie O'Neill, Henry Shefflin, Gooch, Tohill etc. I'd have Connolly in there too. An extremely gifted footballer, a pleasure to watch in action. Each to their own though

The voice of BBC football results and so much more on the BBC, Tim Gudgin has died at 87.

https://youtu.be/RPr-af4XfQo

1950: Following a three-year period of National Service, Gudgin joined BFN Radio in Germany as a newsreader and occasional sports reviewer.
1952: Moved back to the UK and became studio manager for BBC European Service, also working as newsreader. When his boss moved to network radio, Gudgin joined him on a six-month attachment - and stayed for 10 years.
1965-71: Worked as a freelancer presenting shows such as Housewives' Choice, Midday, Out & About, Saturday Night on the Light, Treble Chance, Today, Late Night Extra, Home This Afternoon, Top of the Form, Listen on Saturday, Music Box, Family Favourites, Y.A.T.N.A.M, Friday Night is Music Night, Marching & Waltzing, Night Ride, Melody Hour and Swingalong.
1973-76: Worked as a public relations consultant in the Isle of Man.
1976: Returned to the UK and sports programme Grandstand, where he read out the horse racing and rugby results in the final score segment of the programme.
1995: Following the death of Len Martin, he became only the second person to read out the football results for BBC television on Saturday afternoons.
2011: Retired from reading the football results.

At least one GAABoard member has met Tim Gudgin.

That reminded me of simpler times, mind the old paper Irelands Saturday Night which had all the local senior, junior and specifically for us at the time,  underage  soccer results etc..?
