Job done, good to have McGrogan back.  Conor Glass not up to speed yet at all - which I suppose is to be expected.  Need much more creativity up front if we are going to trouble Ard Mhacha.  McFaul put in a great shift - the most fouled player on the field, 3 yellows off him?   Hopefully we have a big performance in us for next week - we will really need one!

I’d be a bigger fan of a 10 glass.
Glass at 10 could be a good option ok for kickouts - with Lynch's range.  We will just have to wait and see tomorrow.

That’s where a young tohill started back in 92
Tohill made first start in 91.

Derry cutting the turf in Bord na Móna Park - very solid first half against breeze, apart from Uíbh Fhaií goal. 1-9/1-1 ahead.  Shane McGuigan superb, Ethan Doherty with the goal.  Ref petty enough at times - must be looking for a championship start!?

 ;D
I know, but I wasn't wearing glasses at the time and decided to respond to the Division 4 and interm-edjit comments.  Glass is half-full today though!!  Doire abú.

Any thoughts on team announced for tomorrow?  Conor Glass starts at 9, also starting are Conor McCluskey, Pádraig McGrogan and Paul Cassidy.  Emmet Bradley among subs.  A good performance could give a lot of confidence before the Ard Mhacha game.  We have more 'natural' forwards now, imo, although still physically light.  Game management was much better v Longfort, so some consistency on that would also be a plus.  Doire abú!

Antrim / Re: Antrim Football Thread

Not to impressed with statement, trying to suggest Antrim are complicit in it as well for not agreeing to a neutral venue. The bit that sticks out for me is the reference to Northern Ireland instead of Ulster. West brit language. Do they not realise the GAA is a 32 county association.
I agree totally - and rest assured that there are many Waterford Gaels with whom this does not rest easy.  I would have expected better from Port Láirge.

You clearly can’t be objective either. Went to Bolton who clearly weren’t up front to him about their financial situation, still kept them up despite the sinking ship (20th in the 4th tier of English football right now in case you’re wondering) Took on Hibs in the Championship, left them promoted and in Europe. And technically left by mutual consent from both clubs. So let’s be up front, he does has some clout outside his Celtic achievements.

Now, I’m not denying he has failed to demonstrate any tactical nous in what should have been winnable games in the here and now; and he doesn’t exactly fill me with confidence right now, but I don’t see any point in giving him the boot this early and expecting some magician to swoop in and clean up the mess. I think Celtic fans have had it too easy in the last few years and the Rangers are pretty much up to speed and no longer the the laughing stock they were. Failure to secure 10IAR will be unforgivable but I think the club need to persevere with Lennon for the time being. But he’s on his last legs without doubt

I am objective. I have nothing personal against him, it's just clear as day that the job is too big for him and he's not up to it.

The club need to get rid ASAP, the performances this season have been abject, the exit out of the CL was humiliating. We need to be proactive rather than reactive.
Would sticking a poster of Edwin Poots in the changing room help?

Cork and Down (just about) deserve the top 2 places in Division 3.  Those are their most likely finishing positions if all the games had been played.   However given the circumstances in which the last 2 rounds were "played", it would be fair to all counties if the A and B plan was shelved for at least a year.  Restrictions will still be with us well into 2021.

Cork, yes. Down, no. Home advantage and a couple of questionable calls (P Hughes, Armagh) saw them over the line. Gallagher's attire that night was shocking too.
Yes, I think we should have got at least a point from the an Dún game which brings the point dropped against Liatroim into sharper focus.   Would Liatroim have taken a point off an Dún?  We will never know and that is why it would be fair to all counties if the A and B plan was shelved for at least a year.   Did we drop points for Gallagher's appearance as well?!

Tír Eoghain were excellent today and but for a missed goal chance in the first half could have reached the final.  Paul Devlin got his tactics spot on and will be disappointed that the forwards' execution wasn't as clinical as needed.  Great effort though.

Tyrone lost that game on kickouts which you could attribute to a tactical failure. Time and time again Dublin had easy restarts where they could build their attacks from the back. Conversely Dublin pushed up aggressively on the Tyrone kickouts and forced Quinn to kick long where Tyrone got devoured in the middle of the pitch.

No the Tyrone game, I think you just fail to understand the game. Tyrone consistently wasted a lot of ball into their full forward line, kicking it straight down the neck of a few sweepers, we scored 0-01 from play in the second half, got absolutely devoured on our own kickouts. The changes off the bench we made had no impact.

You're just making yourself look incredibly stupid.
No sure what match you were watching - Celtic maybe?
1-4 without reply and devoured??!  Hopefully you know more about your beloved soccer than your pretend GAA interest.  What does some of this even mean?!  Devoured by 2 points?!  Give the Ulster Champions some credit.

Angelo i've said before i'll not defend NL when he doesn't deserve defending and today is def not a day to try but you're are being such a hateful hoor tbh. I've had shit from huns all day but it's nothing having to listen to your crap about Neil Lennon and Celtic. The performance was shit today from players and management and wasn't good enough and if sacking Neil Lennon is the answer then so be it, if a new manager makes Celtic a better team then I'm all for that but I get the feeling that still wouldn't make u happy.
You yapped about James Forrest but i can tell you i'd have gladly taken him today, you yapped about not playing Rogic and Ntcham etc look what them players contributed. As i said yesterday it wouldn't have mattered what the result was today your opinion will always be the same and i stand by my previous comment that you're a f**king disgrace if you call yourself a Celtic fan. You haven't one good thing to say about Celtic, you hate the Board, you hate the manager and by your comments you hate the players so WTF is up your hole.

The performance today was in line with our performances all season. Rangers were the first team we have met this season close to our level and they wiped the floor with us.

I'm not being hateful, I'm being honest and I'm being objective. You are so personally attached to Lennon that you cannot stomach any completely grounded and rational criticism that comes his way.

I'm a Celtic fan, you seem to be a Neil Lennon cheerleader.

A fan supports their team and i've never seen one positive post from you about Celtic so that's why i said you were a disgrace to call yourself a Celtic fan. Yes, you've everyone on your side here and in your words I look like a Neil Lennon cheer leader from todays result (which i haven't defended him) but this has been going on for a long time with you not just today or last week.
I support Celtic through and through and always have done, I support the players and always have done and until they move on or are shipped out then i support whoever wears the green and white hoops. If the manager warrants the sack and it happens then so be it but until that happens then they've my full support.
That is because Angelo seeks attention on whichever thread he is on - check it out and you will see.  Angelo is a fan of nothing, except of himself.  I just want you to know that your allegiance to Celtic is the true one, the type of supporter that all clubs need.  Don't let Angelo put you off - he only cares for his own ego and when challenged he runs.  He does not have "everyone on his side" so do not worry about that - he represents no-one and his comment re Edouard above is bordering on racism.  Imagine using that language to refer to a player from your own team?  He knows exactly what he is doing - and the board will catch up with him.   Know that what you feel in your heart and soul for Celtic is right.
