The last few episodes of Billions have been very good.

Designated Survivor is back after a mid-season break and is motoring along nicely.

The Walking Dead on the other hand is dragging like buck (haven't missed a single minute though!). 16 episodes / season could be halved to 8 to keep the action levels up.

With a capable management team implementing a modern day system, Derry should and would be competing for an Ulster title.

agreed

Only caught the last 20 minutes of the game yesterday. What stood out for me, other than the poor shooting, was how the two Slaughtneil boys looked to be miles ahead in fitness. Waht are they doing at Owenbeg during the week?

would disagree here. 3 Slaughtneil men played the full game for starters. Also, I don't think fitness is the issue. With the exception of Lynch, the rest are in serious condition, even McGuckin who has been putting in serious shifts this league campaign, has been good for a man so who's attributes are criminally underutilised, and Kielt who is constantly in the top percentile in the GPS stats for yards covered. On Kielt, anyone know why he didn't start? The issue is the defence ie the defensive system. Any back 6 will be hung out to dry more often than not these days if there is adequate cover. Carlus played deep (from midfield) at times, had a good game with ball in hand but how well versed in screening a defence at county level would he be?

Heavron has been badly missed, his ball across for the 2nd goal was majestic, not too many players about would have that kind of vision.

We've a decent chance of survival. Cork will be on a high with their win, and O'Neill / Kerrigan will severely punish Down given half a chance. Fermanagh's defence is as leaky as ours, so we're heading to Brewster with a decent chance of winning. In saying that, would it be the wort thing in the world to be relegated and start afresh next season?

On young Rocks, the incident happened a good bit away from us, shoulder into the back of the head i hear, was released from Altnagelvin last night. Never good seeing an ambulance on the field taking a player away

Yer man Conlon fought tonight should be ashamed.
why?

Why indeed. Massive difference in class. Yer man knew once he offloaded he was getting a couple of body blows. When he finally came out his shell a bit more, Conlon went to town. Very exciting fighter with a big crowd behind him, could be a good fews ahead for Conlon

Both teams were at the cynical stuff. Crokes were just better at it than Slaughtneil.
wouldn't begrudge Cooper his club medal though.

You weren't watching the same game. Crokes were incredibly cynical today, all over the field, in and off the ball and were allowed to do it. Buckley must have committed 12 fouls himself before a yellow was produced. The no 11 on McKaigue etc etc. The going to ground at the slightest touch is a real gear grinder. All top club and County teams are cynical, it goes with the territory, but Deegan aided an off the charts 60 mins of it this evening.

Players will do whatever they can get away with - fault lies entirely with the referee for not dealing with it.

100%

Thems the breaks Millsy. A huge turning point. Slaughtneil ran out of steam and Se manning midfield their main target man taken out of the equation. Christ but Crokes were allowed to get away with some cynicism today, would love to see the foul count. Crokes no 2 was a lucky boy, kicked Mehaul McGrath right in front of us along the 20m with about 20 to go. Thems the breaks!

Heads up the Robbies, great ambassadors for the county. Youse will be back

Heard Mark Lawrenson on Today FM on Sat talking about the Barca game. Interviewer asked him did he not think the diving took a bit of the gloss off the victory, "no". You've an big old fashioned 'AVE IT!' centre half turned analyst declaring it's fine to win by diving / cheating.

Lawrenson was anything but that type of defender chap; youd be doin well to name a more cultured centre half partnership than him and Hansen

Agreed, what I was more getting at was he wouldn't have entertained a forward cheating him.

Keith Earls. Jamie Heaslip.

Move them the f**k along please.

Wobbler you are probably the most vocal critic on here. Only a casual watcher so out of interest what would be your first 15 and match day squad assuming no injuries?

See this is all out of character for me. I'm normally all for loyalty and coaching.

I'm just absolutely sick to my eyeballs of watching Earls and Kearney run sideways then falling.


The centres are shite too. Schmidt is a ultra-conservative coach hence our lack of ability to create any real quality against the top sides.

Earls was very good tonight and I'd be far from his biggest fan. Outside Sexton, we're not overally inventive out the back but a damn site more inventive than Wales. One side got the breaks inside in the opposition's 22,  that was the difference tonight

Diving in football ?? Never. There isn't a team that doesent do it so don't be holding your noses when your watching it

so that's it, it's part of the game, accept it, don't mention it and move on?
