Looks like a broken ankle for Welbeck.

Maybe broke and dislocated.

Watched the latest walking dead there yesterday, some shift at the end. Funny when they did the in the next 3 episodes blurb they put up reviews and one of them was "The Walking Dead back to its best" they must of realised it'd gone to shite lol

Think this season is good. Rick's ending should have being different though.

How about when you kick the ball over the bar you get as many points as the amount of your own players inside the oppositions 21yard line.  ;)

Well, it's certainly a novel idea!  ;)

Rossfan I never suggested that nothing should be done.

Itchy, I think this amended proposal doesn't make sense at all. Forcing the keeper to kick long will mean that anyone who stands inside the 45 for a kickout is immediatey taken out of the game. With no restriction on where players can stand for the kick out and knowing that the ball will land somewhere between 45-80 metres, all/most of the forwards will drop back into that area to clog up the space. Anytime the ball breaks (which will be more likely to happen now due to the increased number of players in the middle sector), It'll be a real scramble with several players around the ball/man in possession. Is that what people want to see?

Kicking the ball long is what we'd all like to see, but forcing it to happen is silly (Especially without a restriction on where players can be). One of the main reasons forwards stay up the field for kick outs at the moment is to try to cut off the short kick-out. That won't be necessary now, so forwards are unlikely to stay up the field.

Not everyone wants to see the kickout going long. I like to see teams who have some imagination and worked on a strategy. Football is continuously evolving like my own club who played the goalkeeper as an extra outfielder Sunday when we reduced to 14 in Ulster.
I'd question those coming up with rules if they didn't see problems with this one.
Also they've introduced a five yard kick pass. The sideline going forward actually punishes the team taking it as they have one less player forward as they are taking it.
Having watched my club evolve their style of play this year to become an attacking team was down to coaching and Declan Bonner is right when he said it is the fault of coaches and systems. No club teams in Cavan play defensive and we had the highest attended club football final as a result.

Castlerahan got a very raw deal from Mr Branigan with the softest yellow you will ever see, depriving them of a player for half the game. Cost them in the end .

Don't think it was even a foul.

Wins for both Coleraine and Banagher in Ulster. Good to see. Best of luck to Limavady later today too.
Great win for Banagher but Eoghan Rua seem to have made hard work of it v 14 men in second half.

Wasn't just v 14. We lost two county men to injury and had our full back black carded. Went man for man in second half using keeper as an extra defender. We just ran out of steam.

Very harsh sending off to be fair. Black card also could have been down to soft ground. I'm sure you will be back

2nd yellow was very harsh but the black card was spot on, soft ground might have made him fall but doesn't need to trip with the hand.

Was a definite black alright.

Castlerahan died with their boots on after all the stuff that went against them. Harsh red for Wright, deserved black for Daly and injuries to Enda Flanagan and Fergal Reilly. To play the second half man to man using Leahy as a back rather than goalkeeper nearly worked

Coleraine beat Castlerahan 2-11 to 0-11

Never a red. But Castlerahan were brilliant second half. Went man to man with Goalkeeper as a corner back. Eoghan Rua took 20 minutes to score in 2nd half.

Lots of new faces called in to Cavan for a look. Brian O Connell asked and said no. Ado Cole quit and Bradley in France. Simon Cadden in and Jack Brady back in. Paul Graham and Fortune in. Seven Crosserlough players in.

Doesn't most of the money that goes to the family just pay the medical bills as he was treated in America.

The Crosserlough and Castlerahan players drank together in BJD on Monday and went up to Dublin together on Tuesday. Great to see.

What a great final and delighted to finally see the club win one. For me Ronan Flanagan was MOTM but Sean Brady ultimately made the difference. Crosserlough are a superb team and will be back.
