Scoring 3 11 against the best team in the division. Derry done what gallagher asked of them,and put in a performance. Not bad imo. Signs of potential are maybe starting to show.be interesting to hear from those who were at the match.thats the last time I leave a match early. Derry were down by 8 or 9 in the 66th minute,and I left.5 hr drive ahead of me a d goin home defeated. Ud all do it too!!

A lot of talk on here but very little actually analyzing the game. About half of that team wouldn't start on a first 15.

Keepers kickouts were very good bar the two he tried short, one of which cost us a point. 
Full back line struggled and gave away some handy frees. Liam McGoldrick did have a few good runs up the field though.
C McKaigue was very good on the ball and kicked a great score but doesn't offer much as a sweeper imo.
McFaul was very good, possibly our best player. Full of running and looked to make things happen.
Doherty needs to offer a bit more. Looked a bit nervous on the ball and happy to get rid of it.
McGrogan had a solid if not spectacular game.
Gavin O'Neill tried to make things happen, actually ran at them. Did have one badly misplaced pass but was unlucky with a shot that got caught in the strong breeze and just fell short.
Emmet Bradley had a good game, finished the goal well. Wayward with a couple shots but scored too and was a physical mismatch.
Tallon tried to make things happen too, ran at them and caused a bit of bother. Slipped a couple times when in decent positions and was unlucky not to get more from the game.
Duffy was a bit like Doherty, looked nervous on the ball. Did clip over a score. I think he probably needs a full year on the panel to get physically at the level needed.
Sammy had a wayward effort early on and lifted the head as if he wanted to kick when in possession but it never seemed to be on. Frustrating evening for him.
Bell looked like he could be a handful early on and kicked a couple nice scores. Faded as the game went on.
McCarron kicked a great score against the breeze towards the end. Turned and kicked a free backwards from 50 yards when we had 2 on 2 inside with a player pulled away on the diagonal, was frustrating and almost epitomized the game. Otherwise was very quiet. 

Shane McGuigan looked on a different level to all the other forwards when he came on.
Thought Toner struggled a bit when he came on.
The rest of the subs had minimal impact.

The mark wasn't a factor for us as we very rarely kicked the ball inside. If they are going to persist with those tactics then the likes of Duffy or Sammy Bradley won't fit into the team as we need to have a physical mismatch running at them with pace and power.

It was frustrating to watch and Leitrim were even more defensive than Derry tbh. The thing is, they were better at it. Cute fouls outside of the scoring zone and then got 14 back behind the ball and Derry struggled to break it down. They then broke at pace. Leitrim did look a lot hungrier than Derry in all honesty.
That's an accurate an account as you can get.totally agree with ur analysis there. Derry were great at making the runs forward,but it's that final 3rd of the pitch where Derry struggled.all too often they tried to walk it in or force the pass,instead of shooting from the 21 or the 14,and got turned over far too often.poor decision making.Lietrims main scorer scored 9 points,7 frees,a 45 and one from play.so that's where the majority of their 1:14 tally came from.incidently,derry scored 2:6 or their 2:11 total from play.maybe with a bit more discipline,who knos!! having said all that,of the 3 games derry have played thus far,with respect to monaghan and donegal,this was imo,the tightest game derry have played yet.lietrim were as u said,that bit hungrier and cuter than derry were.fair play to them. Division 3 is going to be interesting,because if lietrim play like that,they'll give anyone a good test.

Going by Gallagher's team selection tonight,I think he gambled that Lietrim were going to be shite,hence no Cassidy and Shane McGuigan not starting. Unless they're not fit. Also,where is Holly and Colm Mcgoldrick and Mooney. Anybody kno the story on these lads. They were all named as part of the Derry set up this year!!!

Going by Danny Tallon's performances over the two opening games of the McKenna cup,I think he has earned a starting place in Gallagher's first 15 v Lietrim. He has the potential to be a great link player,plus he is a good ball carrier and can run at defenses.IMO.

It was 4 points to 2 at half time.both teams playing that blanket defense shite as far as I could see.donegal just better at it than we were.donegal division one and derry division 3.cop on lads. Derry have played 2 teams in as many weeks,higher divisions than them,and made a good account  of themselves and with out the full compliment of players available.ie,Niall Holly,Colm Mcgoldrick,Shane McGuigan  Enda Lynn,Chrissy McKeague,Karl McKeague ect.so ffs,let's just wait a while before we write derry off altogether.
