Wins for both Coleraine and Banagher in Ulster. Good to see. Best of luck to Limavady later today too.
Big win for "na cúnna"! Congrats.
Power seems to be in North Derry. All the noise seems to come from the usual suspects in south Derry. All that coaching paying off. Great to see.
Certainly is. South Derry 13  - 3 North Derry - Last years top League
I believe it was 12-4 but anyone with half a brain cell can see that we need men from North, South, East or West. We're sitting in Div.4. We need to come together and be one Derry if we're to improve. Even the city folk  ;)

Hurling is a far better watch in fairness, so TG4 have it spot on.......
Subjective. Club football throws up some great games that are fantastic to watch in fairness.

The County Board don't give two f**ks about promoting the GAA in the city. They have paid it lip service for years. They should flood the city with coaches, GAA promotion,  you name it.

The clubs in the city are doing okay, some more so than others, but this is an acorn that needs broken...............meanwhile the County Board yet again sits idle while the youth don't play the sport in the city. It is not only looks bad on the city for them not wishing to par-take in our gaelic culture, but casts a huge weight around the County Board's neck for not not bothering their backsides to do something about it.
Actually completely disagree with this. May have been that way in the past but more a lot more emphasis is currently put on the city than anywhere else. Neil Forrester and Brian O'Donnell are never out of the schools and, as has been mentioned previously, there has been a big emphasis on primary school age that has seen large numbers at Go Games from all city clubs.

I always knew McLarnon was second, sad times my oul school is at third tier now
Sad? I think you mean pathetic. 1,500 boys at St. Columb's, in so-called 'nationalist' Derry, playing 3rd tier Gaelic football? School community needs to have a good look in the mirror. No craic in (London)derry?
That post above is pathetic.

Of that 1,500 maybe 10% would be interested in gaelic football. This isn't the same as having those numbers in a rural school.
A lot of St.Columb's better players will come from the likes of Claudy, Craigbane, Banagher, Slaughtmanus, Foreglen but those boys will make up a very small percentage of pupils (maybe 5-10 pupils per year). So that leaves the city clubs. Steelstown have been making strides at underage level, competing in 'A' divisions and this should help in that regard but the other clubs have been traditionally weaker. There is good work being done with city clubs to try to improve this.
The emergence of Donegal schools in particular in recent times, at a similar level to St.Columb's, has meant that they will yoyo between 2nd and 3rd grade for probably a few years yet.

That Cathair Doire team should go alright in the McLarnon. They have a couple of the successful Derry underage players of recent times in Ben McCarron and Fergal Mortimer playing for them.

What’s the difference in the Markey Cup and McLarnon Cup now? I see Cathair Doire are in the former and the College in the later. Also see a lot of Donegal teams in the later while Belfast teams in the McLaron. Has it gone geoographical or it has it graded differently ?
Other way around. McLarnon is 2nd grade (below McRory), Markey is (I think) 1 below that again. Cathair Doire is basically St.Columb's, Lumen Christi, St.Joe's and Oakgrove amalgamated. Each school still plays individually also where possible eg. St.Columb's in the Markey.

Where is the video referee in the premier league?
It was a clear dive.
Gana got a touch on ball, Martial kept going saw the ball was heading away and dived
Why wasn't smalling given 2nd yellow card for Everton peno?

Agreed on both points, but the ref calls it there and a penalty bought!
In other news, what is lukaku eating? He must be changing to a rugby player

Seen a photo of him when he first signed for the EPL, WTF!

He was 18 then, sure he's only filling out  ;)

Who beat Sleachtneil hurlers in Derry this year and was it considered a shock?

Them players deserve a right rest this winter after their exploits last few years.
Slaughtneil won the Derry SHC this year so there will be no rest yet (although the rest would be deserved/needed).

Feel free to tell me off, but its fairly depressing looking at the players we have lost ie Glass, Brown and Tohill. Each are physically brutes. Maybe they won't cut the mustard and return bigger and better, but I wouldn't hold my breath, we can't take those loses.
My concern is if they do return in a couple years, people will expect them to slot straight into a county team. Two of the three we've lost to Oz were far from the finished article as footballers despite their physicality/athleticism.
