I'm from Derry and what has our CB done, they have played 4 league games in April. Shut the club down now until the 17th of July, where the league resumes with the remaining 7 league games. All this is done for the county senior and u20 team. As the previous poster said, the GAA is stupid. At least your leagues are continuing, be thankful for small mercies

the gaa are a pack of clowns. Adding a load of meaningless u20 games to the schedule at this time of the season is a disgrace and can only negatively effect clubs. u20 teams have been training for 6 months for a couple of games. Play U20's feb/mar/apr like before. typically gaa in trying to address a probelm they make it worse.

If you think Tyrone played the first 55 mins in any other than first gear, no problem, its opinions, but what gear do you think they played  in the last 12 mins. A gl &5 to a single pt. We wear out on our feet and we needed legs for the middle third, we didn't have the bench for that , where the most energy is used. However I do agree it was a decent performance. I didn't expect us to get well beaten, and it is to the players credit to have been in the game until the final 12 mins. Hopefully a few rounds in the qualifiers.


To tell you the truth there would need to be a few wins in the qualifiers to justify stopping club football for 11 weeks. No county football at u20 or senior level for the next 4 weeks. We couldn't fit two league games in, even one!!

do some laughing at you two last posters. Rogers chb,lol, head down carrying ball down the wing, not a foot pass in him at chb lol. He got cleaned out at FB yesterday. I think he is an average county full back, but he showed no aggression yesterday. Playing Fb for the nailers he was v aggressive to 'Star', where has that gone to.


Mc Shane is a supper player, played mf on a winning U21 All Ireland team, starred at FF for Tyrone in the league in D1, yes D1, going to be one of the players of the championship for Tyrone. The only thing that I will say in Bells defence is that we don't have many good kick passers of the ball to find his runs. Tadd is another version of Mattie Donnelly. A good players yes, plenty of spirit in him, but a ball carrier, we need a footballer playing with him.  The Tyrone's ones would tell you when Donnellye was out the filed, when he got the ball not a forward made a run as he carried the ball constantly, another reason why he was moved inside during this league

Our bench isn't strong enough, that needs addressed for next season. Meenagh is doing a decent job. Tyrone in 1st gear yesterday. Brolly is right, we had lost our soul. V slowly regaining it, but our underage teams should have our own managing them.

Muldoon gone from Banagher, what a tube of a club. Heard the reason from a well placed source. I wonít post it until its confirmed by other sources. This the third manager in the past 6 years they have forced into resigning mid season as far as I can gather. There are a very grateful community🤮

Was at Glenullin vKilrea. Standard poor considering some of the players they previously had. Only 1 man remotely near county standard in Neil McNichol. I presume he been asked up previously and refused?

It was poor fair for sure. We have one point after two games, admittedly against what would be two of the top teams in this league, but if we wanted promotion we needed more on the board than just a point. We'll do well to get promotion in this league following that start, but you never know. Good to see Neil back after his injury.

Donít talk to me about football after that disaster yesterday. Our u12s could defend better.

Disappointing to read about Ogra's situation. As thing go forward small rural clubs like this are going to get it tight. Ballindery and Loup will no doubt be keen to pick up whatever players they can, and the truth is they need to, to continue to help provide Gaa activities to this population.

Bannside, in fairness, you have to be the most optimistic supporter I have ever come across.

Donít want to labour the point, but the man is so far out of his depth. If a man canít see that a forty yard hole needed to be plugged in a minor final in front of Clifford, enough said.

Slaughtneil? Don't have their own parish as such but split over Glen and Granaghan.

Or have I totally misunderstood the half parish concept.
Are they picking from 2 parishes or are there clearly defined areas within each parish?

Pick from two parishes, there camogs are better off, they take players from everywhere, Creggan in Co Antrim and Offaly.
