Strange match. How Down found themselves in a draw game with time almost up is mad. Down dominated the match from start to finish and missed 4 goal chances. The referee give Carlow some really easy frees. Carlow kicked all but 2 score from free kicks. Good to get a win but thatís a poor Carlow team who lacked any fitness. Heavy suspensions to follow for Carlow after what happened at the end.

Looking forward to poacher v Down this weekend. Or I mean Carlow. Every paper you lift itís about poacher nobody else. Nothing to do with some great players Carlow have in Broderick and the murphys to name a few. They do not even get a mention. Has any number 2 in the history of the GAA got so many headlines?

I see Kilcoo are into the ulster league final with another easy win against Dromore. CPN had a great win yesterday sets us up well for the league. Called up to watch Clonduff and Dromintee in the MM tournament Jesus Armagh club football must be poor Clonduff hammered them. Interesting all County players playing for their clubs over the weekend crazy decision with 2 matches to go in the league

I see Burren thirds are rebranded clownjim. Are you to good to be known as a thirds team? Globetrotters maybe be a better name seeing as you have players from alll over Down?

Just on the abbey thing. Loughinisland have got themselves the biggest bluffer in Down Football. That is an already known fact before yesterday. Although he is not officially thaf manager of that under 15 team he is part of the set up

Genuinely looking forward to Ballyhollands approach at senior level this year wobbler. Do they stick or twist and play with more forwards with these fantastic minors and risk the chance of getting relegated? Iím not for one second saying them young lads not up to it but may be a bit much to ask with all the retirements and the suspended few for the first couple of games.

Laois probably the best team Down have come up against this year. Although Down were missing a lot of players for the first few matches. I would expect Laois to take care of Longford with a few to spare. Whatís Offaly like men? Iím surprised at how well Louth are going.

Stringer looking Down team for Sunday I expect them to win a tight match. Longford have players back from the mullinaghta team so wil be a boost but still expect Down to win.

League fixtures out I see

Burren to take a month or 2 to get going but will finish in top 4

Kilcoo flying in ulster league will win division 1 and favourites for the big one

CPN we will start off quiet slow in the league and if we can get everyone fit can be contenders again fir the championship

Mayobridge as always top 3 in division 1 and if they could sort their goalkeeper out could push the big two

Clonduff will finish in top 6 and if they could unearth a defender or 2 could cause an upset in the championship

Rostrevor canít see them competing as they done last year relegation contenders

Castlewellan to be comfortable mid table league team and as we have seen in the past wonít count come the big one

Bryansford like Castlewellan will sit comfortably in division 1 and get to quarter finals the big underachieving team of ten years

Downpatrick should improve on a disastrous campaign last year but still could go down

Ballyholland really are up against it this year with suspensions early on and retirements. And say what you likd about him but poacher leaving is a massive loss. Automatic relegation

Loughinisland had a great campaign last year and should be mid table division 1 and a quarter final championship team

I was surprised last night at the lack of intensity and pace of the game for large periods. I would say Sigerson is below club football and just above under 21 standard. Billy Morgan said his team doesnít train thatís probably why the game was so poor. Before anyone jumps down my throat both teams has obviously a stand out player boththe number 11s. For example a Kilcoo in Down would destroy St Maryís

Down need to try get another midfielder to play alongside Mooney and Donnelly is probably the right man for that role. He has been played fullback but he is probably our best midfielder this past few years. Performance should get better as last night was not great. Harrison clearly a mile off the pace and give away 3 or 4 balls needs to get himself in shape. One season wonder comes to mind as he has done nothing before or after that year where he had 2 great matches against Monaghan
