hearing last night that the minor replay is going to be next sunday before the senior game. The Mageean cup will have to be moved as neither club will be releasing their players for the game.
Its either in Ballycastle or Dunloy from what i was told.

Could hardly be in Dunloy with your minors involved DR?

I have heard that the minor teams will have no impact on where the final is held. It will be to suit the senior game.

Be interesting to see if the Mageean match gets moved.

Aha my mistake.

Whoever 11 was seemed to disappear 2nd half. (If he he was taken off I didn't notice!)

Did he not score the goal, he doubled on it in mid air from the hand pass across? Maybe I am wrong.

To be fair St Johns style leaves them very light up front and any one playing along the half forward line for them rarely spends much time in the attacking half.

JJ was Ciaran Johnston not number 11? He was playing in the forwards for at least the first half and causing problems?

I am not sure where he went in the second half.

Both teams should have changed their free taker earlier.

Cushendall have for years now been susceptible to pace running at the centre of their defense. That was again a big issue yesterday and one that could have seen them beat.

No Ciaran was 6 green helmet, Conor was playing centre forward more or less yellow helmet.

Peter McCallin was number 11, St Johns didnt go with the programmed numbers.

I've heard the u21 championship is due to kick off this weekend a lot of teams still involved in other competitions - pity there wasn't a few more months in the year !!

It is an arguement that has been gone over and over on here but there is still no solution.

We shorterned the county season and what difference really has it had on the club season? Zero we are still playing our most important matches in October and into November.

Realistically what games of any value were played in the summer months?

U21 is a prime example and it has been pushed about for nearly all of its existence, but now it is running straight into College football at the back end of the year. So players will have been slogging with their teams since preseason this year right through to the end of the year.

well done mark o neill in the senior game.lived up to all his expectations and his predecessors.james mclean take a bow.

What did Mark do wrong? Got all the big calls correct and I wonder if he will report Brian McFall for the verbal abuse after the game?  St Johns will be kicking themselves tonight. Is McManus the only free taker in Cushendall? Also why play Paddy Burke, who in my opinion is the best CHB in the county at FB? Makes for a decent final! Shamrocks surely favourites. Also fair play to St Galls & Cushendun today.

Not getting into a referee bashing debate, but I think when Mark looks back at the video he will see that he got a fair bit wrong.
Both ways to be fair and dont think it had an influence on the result of the game.

Fair play to creggan???? They have spent 250k in past 12 years on managers for seniors lol. Bound to hit a bit of success with one. Biggest spending club in Antrim. Which they are fully entiltled to do but donít come this story of senior players giving back when a number have went to other clubs to manage for money.

Like who? The only one I can think of his Adrian Dougan.
What's the salary these days for a club manager. Admire LD for not paying their own guys on principle

If you have to admire a club for this then we are all up the creek.

Rossa best Cushendall in the fiele final last year, canít remember the score line but it was a fairly wide margin.  That same Cushendall were very strong in North Antrim!
Maybe thatís why he has that large wedge of lemon lodged in his gob.

Challenge is to get through that the feile isnt the end goal and to get the lads to stick at it past this and through the ranks upwards. Obviously challenges are greater for this for Belfast clubs traditionally, but it needs to happen regardless to get Rossa and other clubs back to competing regularly for senior honours.

Just donated on the go fund me page and I rarely donate to charities or anyone looking for money. I saw the article in the sunday independent and the money is badly needed.

Be interesting to see if the club or players step up for this cause. Hopefully they do.

Agree with Syf here to a point with regards to the UFC needing names to sell fights rather than the best MMA exponents.

If all they are interested in is making money then they need to suspend/ban Khabib for as long as possible. He is and will be completely dominant in this division and no one will touch him. However we wont make the money for the company that other fighters can clearly make. He doesnt sell PPV. Its pretty simple.

McGregor is a good fighter and a great promoter and he will bring the cash to the company. It is in their interests to keep him at the top of the pile

So instead of getting the best in the sport to the front they should get the best promoters to the front.

It then is no longer a sport!

It never was a sport, it was/ is a business.

I see that the Derry SFC final is scheduled for the same day - that could affect attendance.

You think the Cargin ones will go to the Derry final instead?  ;)

Roy Keane on nottingham radio last night saying the united players should stop acting like cry babies and spoilt brats and regardless of whatever grievances they have with mourinho when the pull on the united jersey they should roll up their sleeves give 100% and remember they represent themselves their families and more importantly their club manchester united. More or less saying stop behaving like pricks get your finger out and f**king behave like manchester united players. Whatever about your feelings of keano it is hard to disagree with his comments. Thoughts?

Same applies to any club and manager, you don't like the manager?boo f**king hoo, think of the money you're getting every week and the poor saps that pay their hard earned every week to go see you play


Saipan anyone?  Pot and kettle.

Fair enough point.

Doesn't make what he's saying wrong though and like I said same goes for any club and group of players...

Saipan was a different set of reasons, without opening up the can of worms again.

These players are the pampered and best looked after players possible and are throwing in performances not worthy of the club regardless of feelings toward the manager.

Couldnt agree more with what keane has said. Problem is that the players are now so far removed from reality and are kept in such a bubble that this thinking does seem to be prevalent.
