Derry / Re: Derry Club football and Hurling

What do you say after that
Firstly, much has been wrote and spoken about of the glenullin defensive tactics over the last few weeks but Loup were the most defensive, negative, cynical team I ever did see. Glenullin actually surprised all by playing without a sweeper and keeping G O Kane up in the half forward line.  As a contest it wasn't pretty but I don't think anyone expected it to be but Glenullin cant be blamed for this.
Fair play to Loup, they got men behind the ball and put pressure on the shooters.  But what the f**k was up with our players tonight. Must of hit between 15 and 20 wides. Paddy, Eoin, Ruairi Boylan, Gerard O kane all responsible for some really shocking misses.
Not going to harp on about referees but there were a few occasions that frees could of been blown as our forwards were being fouled as they were lining up shots. Eoin has a reputation of looking frees too but that doesnt mean that when he is actually fouled he shouldnt get them. JJ failed to blow a couple of obvious ones on him
Dont agree with Ticklemaster that Loup were the better side. Thought Glenullin created alot more chances and if they had of had more composure then we would of won. Agree that we got out of jail. After GOK missed the one on one in extra time the heads driopped and Loup were the only team after that.
Delighted to get a second chance but a draw was probably a fair result as neither side did enough to prove they were superior

Its a bit rich Glens-man talking about the Loup being defensive and negative, i was standing directly behind the Glenullin dugout and they where going mad with their own forwards for tackling their men, instead wanting everyone of them to come back into their own half before pressuring the ball once the loup came over the half way line. Unbelievable tactics  :-X.

I know the new rule has been introduced regarding the square ball but does old rules  not still stand from free kicks, if so the goal should have been ruled out. You would think men doing umpires at these matches would know the rules.

Thought John Joe had a good game, some debateable calls at times for both teams but over all a good steady game.

You would think that people posting on message boards criticising umpires would know that umpires can't call a square ball... unless that part of the rule changed as well  :-\

Oh yes I forgot that
How long did he get?

If Brennan can get that forward line working with the 2 Bradleys and change their attitude as he seems to have don't with Paddy then I for one would not like to meet Derry again.
Mind you I was amazed how poor they were last year in Casement v Tyrone
No FIGHT in them at all

48 weeks reduced to 24 on appeal...
Just checked back - it happened on 28th August; 24 weeks is this saturday 12th February but i don't know if the 'close' season of November & December adds on 8 weeks??

What's the story with Skinner? Is he injured or huffed again?
Could Derry be dark horses this year with that Derry forward line looking a lot more balanced?

Suspended for ah... erm... ah... minor interference with a referee  :P
I'm sure he's due back very soon though.

Joe is on the J'town McKenna cup panel, not Derrys.  He may be training with Derry though, not sure

I take it Joe is doing some part-time course or has he returned to full time education?  He must be 28/29 at this stage.

Anyone see the bbc newsline last night about the male chind minder?

Fair play to him.  Don't see why anyone would have a problem with it.

That's our last 2 managers lost to the derry set-up. At least there was some continuity the last time as Barry Dillon was part of the management team with Martin McConnell.
TFAL, with your expert knowledge,  do you want a job?  ;)

On what basis was the suspension halved?

I thought 48 weeks was the minimum suspension... how can they get away with halving the minimum suspension?  ???

As for today's game, the less said about ballinascreens performance the better.  Not enough players came with their 'A' game!

Credit has to go to Coleraine, they didn't let screen play.  Fair play, all the best in the final.

Well played Coleraine and best of luck against Ballinderry.

Still believe they will beat Ballinderry.

There's two boys giving Lavey no chance!!

Myles, as a Cavan man you must be outraged that Cavan didn't offer Derry a replay after the ulster final in '97:

1.30: Wide given as a point.  I'm sure the No.12 knew it was wide, do you think he should have told referee or umpires?
2.55: Reilly double bounce before hitting a point, should he have told the referee it was a free out?
Both these players would've known that they "cheated"! Is that ulster final victory tainted?

I'm not actually but not a million miles away. . . Just like to keep a tight eye on things in the south derry area.

Sreen must have been flying yesterday, 18 points is a fair old beating in any game  :'(

We were going well yesterday but i wouldn't read too much into it.  Newbridge lost one of their midfielders to injury inside the first few minutes which caused a lot of re-shuffling; Dougan was substituted at the start of the second half & McElhone wasn't playing (has he a long-term injury?)

Yeah in a league game. . . We all know that history would tell us (and the roll of honour) that screen struggle when that big word "championship" is produced ::) ::)  Great wee league team but  ;D

Yeah, and i was serious  ::)  ::)

Newbridge man i take it??

Any Bellaghy men at the game yesterday? I thought the scoreline flattered them a bit, Screen look a good bet at 9/4.

If Screen can beat the 2nd most successful team in derry (though i think ballinderry are level with newbridge) by 18 points, then nothing less than a 12 point victory on friday will make me happy  ;)

Afterall, we all know how history plays a part in our wonderful games  ;)
