Is Danny Heavron back with Derry?

No - despite Gallagher's best efforts

14 day quarantine with their work from travelling to the north  :(

We're like lepers up here lol.

Not good. The whole thing needs called off.

How do you combat the likes of that work thing? You would need to play all the games down south.

If true, an absolute disgrace but it should be noted that this was a secondary complaint from them after the thinly veiled jibe that they wanted Antrim to come and meet them halfway to play at a neutral venue, which was rightly refused.

A poor statement by Waterford IMO.

No issue with any team not feeling comfortable at the minute and not fielding a game, especially a meaningless one for them. However, don't try and push the blame towards the opposition.

I believe that there are 28 players in the Derry Senior football panel.Four players who started against Tyrone in last year's Ulster championship game have been omitted for this year's panel ie Niall Keenan,Ryan Bell,Liam McGoldrick and Conor McAtamney (Incidentally Paul McNeill was also a starter in that side but was missing for the league owing to an injury).It would appear that Rory Gallagher is placing a lot of emphasis on the younger talent within the county.Hence the inclusion of Paul Cassidy and Ethan Doherty.

The most surprising omission from that missing quartet is Niall Keenan who has been one of Derry's most consistent players for the last four years.Likewise the inclusion of the inexperienced Connlan Bradley as goalkeeping cover for Odhran Lynch is also a surprise.

Perhaps some poster could give us the names of the full panel as I feel there must be other omissions from last year's panel which was certainly much larger

I think Niall Kennan is away to England to study, also obvious reasons for McGoldrick to be omitted.
Paul Cassidy had a very poor season for Bellaghy IMO, I was really looking forward to seeing him this year however he doesn't seem to have taken to Senior football as well as I thought he would, albeit he's had his injury problems. I'd imagine he will be one for the future with little game time this season.
Paul McNeill is a very welcome addition, quality defender.
Connlan Bradley in nets is a strange one. This time last year he had never done nets in his life before. He has ended up doing OK but there are a lot of keepers ahead of him in the county.

Where in England is he

Not 100% sure, but I remember reading a while back (maybe in the Derry post) that he was going to do a 2 year course in England to become a chiropractor.

Taking the Watties and our fellow parishioners to Celtic Park. Ridiculous.

That game’s made for the Screen.

Absolutely crazy but I reckon the shiteness of many streams from other locations means they need to take the game to Celtic Park which would be better set up for broadcasting.

The match shouldn’t be near Celtic Park regardless of streaming or not it’s a stupid decision!
Perfectly valid decision to take it to Celtic Park if it means it can be seen clearly on a live stream by the thousands of people who under normal circumstances would attend but cannot this year.

I would agree Oakleaflad

Horrendous result last night, sh!te team selection & sh!te performance too. Kept talking in commentary that Celtic need to score some of the chances they are creating. However for all the possession celtic had I thought they created very little clear cut chances.

The new keeper also hasn't impressed me so far, he'd need to improve ASAP.

We will maybe see if Messi can join Ronaldo and 'do it at more than one club'

I have no doubt whatsoever Messi could 'do it' in any league in the world.

If we can get 4 million for Rogic that is great business

Absolutley - if he's out of Lenny's plans take the money and re-invest in Turnbull

How much would Turnbull cost? was the chat last season £3.5 million?

Can't imagine Chimaev will have fella's queuing up to fight him.

Watched him on Saturday night vs McKee. He's relentless and agressive

His previous fight against John Phillips was a replica, except that it lasted for 7 or 8 minutes from memory.
His dominance on the ground was just unreal in both fights. 
I know the quality isn't anywhere near what Khabib fought, but I thought his top pressure and control was at least as impressive as Khabib.

Any idea when he will fight again?

He said after the fight on Saturday night he would fight in an hours time if anyone else was injured on the card, and that he wants to keep fighting quickly again as its really easy money.

I'd doubt the UFC will keep throwing him fights every week though lol

I'd say he'll also struggle to get fights.  There's not much upside to a ranked fighter fighting him!!

I was thinking the exact same

He said after the fight on Saturday night he would fight in an hours time if anyone else was injured on the card, or that further down the line he would fight twice in one night as its really easy money.
