Well lads, what's the craic? I've been away a while and tried reading back through the pages but got fed up. I see there are a few new lads here too. I was at the county finals last weekend. Good enough stuff, although one sided. It's hard to see this weekend being different though i hope Denn can shock. What about the minor final. Who exactly are Killan Gaels? I'd say Ballyhaise would be strong.

Did any of ye see the preview the Celt did for the senior final? It's probably the best couple of pages i've ever seen in that paper. One of the articles is here: http://www.anglocelt.ie/sport/localgaa/articles/2009/09/30/391644-gaels-to-shade-epic/

What is the story with the Gaels and Gowna suspensions? Should the teams not just be deducted points at the start of next year as doing it this year affects relegation and table standings of other teams? The way it stands a team near the bottom could be saved by two points from Gowna while another team who Gowna beat earlier may go down. Doesn't seem just does it? I know it didn't help Ballyhaise before when Ballinagh got suspended.

In Group 1 i would think that Drumbride would make the group and themselves and Belturbet might get through although you cannot rule out Redhills. In my opinion Group 2 is the toughest. I would think it will be Gowna and Cuchullains to go through. Group 3 seems straight-forward enough for me with Cavan Gaels and Mullahoran to proceed. Group 4 is tough to gauge but ill be optimistic and say Lacken and Kingscourt to go through. Sorry lads, i will probably be proven wrong yet.

Well RednBlack and Denn Forever what do ye think of our group for the championship? It may throw up the best games as no team is much better than another.

Yeah he's handy enough alright. I read a good one there too. www.anglocelt.ie/articles/2/35752. It gives a fair account of what is happening and the post match analysis.

It will be interesting to see how Carr lines out the team. It would be great to see some of the so-called "stars" back and mixed in with the new lads who are playing well. You have to look at Larry to start or at least feature on Sunday. It's no journey to Longford really from any part of Cavan and any Cavan man who can make it should!

Hello there lads, it has been a while. Don't worry, i've been reading back and am now up to date. Are there many lads missing for Sunday? It's a pity we didn't get to see more of the lads in McKenna Cup.

Yeah, you're right there Boojangles the Gaels had it very handy in the second half especially. We totally collapsed as a unit at that stage. As for the Ballyhaise game i wouldn't be too bothered about it. I heard it was a shitty evening with poor football being played by teams missing players. I wasn't at it myself but from the Gaels game (not really something to go by i know) we were missing Trevor Crowe, Micheal Shanaghy, Colm Sheridan, Phillip Moynagh, Shane Sheridan.....can't remember if there was any more. Belturbet on Sunday is the big one.

Boojangles i assure you i am neither of the Hyland lads but i have a fair idea who you are and you are not around that long if you ask me. I never said he was the right man for the job but "not knowing his arsehole from his ear hole" isn't true and i felt i had to stand up for my fellow clubman there.

I've been away for a while but i couldn't let this slip away.

From what I hear Terry Hyland dosent know his arse hole from his ear hole along the line and I dont think he has near the necessary experience for the county Senior job.

That is quite a statement there Boojangles. Have you ever trained under the man? I'm not sayin he's the best in the world but he has trained a number of clubs including Lacken, Denn, Knockbride, Ballyhaise and Lavey. He has also managed the Cavan over 40's for a number of years with success. He is selector for the successful Irish over 40's for the last number of years and is preparing them for another trip down under. He was selector with Louth and Cavan. This year he set up and managed the county development/junior squad. Maybe i'm forgetting some stuff there too.

Maybe you're right. Sure he wouldn't know anything.

Hello there dudes, long time no post. Just to comment on the last post. I don't think Fiinbar left the panel at all. I think he was injured and was then allowed to play for club after as he was nowhere near the starting team. I think he was on the panel all along which probably wasn't fair on other players. Do any of ye know if the games are going ahead this weekend with or without county players? I know the qualifier is next week.

A hard fought two points for Ballinagh on Saturday in a hard-hitting but low-scoring victory over neighbours Lacken. Patrick Carroll, Damien McInerney and Paul Galligan were on form for us and Darragh McCarthy also providing a fantastic save to keep us on top. Lacken are flying fit and were somewhat hard won by to leave without a point as they looked the hungrier for most of the game but failed to make it count on the scoreboard. One has to wonder have they peaked a little early in the year.

As for the county scene I heard Rabbitte limped off from a training game and looks unlikely to start next Sunday.  :(

Yes we have definitely peaked too early, and with Ballinagh missing Beard, Podge and Gaynor as well as Moore and Niall McDermott from the minors. We could have gotten a point. It didn't really matter that we were missing Trevor Crowe, Gary McGauran, Raymond Galligan (came on at the end though f**ked), Colm Sheridan, Terry Hyland, Shane O Reilly and played with a half fit Finbar O Reilly. Its looking like Paul McGauran, Johnny Sheridan and Donal Shanaghy will be out for a while now too. We are but a small club ya know!

Any senior games going ahead this weekend? Clubs could agree to play them couldn't they. I think i know what the big mystery is too. I heard something but i wouldn't like to say on this site. If it got out it would make national headlines, that's all i can say.
