That's your opinion OURBOY and you're welcome to it but I think it's ludicrous to expect an amateur sportsman to stay sober for probably the one time in his life where he will be his brother's best man. Of course Crozier has to tell him he won't get any special treatment for the next match and he will be dropped if his replacement plays well enough but I don't think that is anywhere near the case this time. He has to start on Saturday.

I also want to mention Deighan... he was superb yesterday and I think has established himself as our number 1. He has to start the championship.

I see a bit of a trek is in order this weekend for us Leafers as our U21s are playing in Belfast at 2 and our Seniors up in the city at 7. Two wins would make the travelling a lot easier! Will you be making the trip lynchbhoy?

just watched the game there. missing doc in the middle of the field and paddy bradley had a rare quiet game. galway tore us apart in defence with john dieghan pulling off some great saves. eoin bradley frustrated me a great deal. i say eoghan brown should be called up and given a chance.

We were completely cleaned out at midfield and as a result their was little quality ball going into the forwards. James Conway did some good things but he's there primarily to win ball in the middle and he wasn't at the races in that department; neither was Muldoon (who seems to be very short on confidence). I thought Deets shaped up a bit in the second half. What happened Paul Murphy? I thought Mc Guckian and Hinphey were disappointing in defence. Diver showed well when he came on but the niggley thing is still there and he needs to get rid of that (even though he should have had his free). Gerard O'Kane showed well when he came on. Paddy Bradley looked very subdued. Eoin did reasonably well.

Still, I think we have a team that can contend but we need the strongest 15 out every game in the championship and god help us if we loose Fergal Doc.


well thats not paddy croziers opinion,when fergal told him he was not available this weekends match because of his brothers wedding p c response was "we beat galway before without you and you will not be sure of your place in the next match".this is fact not heresay,for him to come out with that to a committed player like doc is a disgrace,it's not as if he was away on a stag or anything it was his brothers wedding!this coming shortly after the michael mcgoldrick affair i can tell you he's not a popular man round our part,the man is a joke.

Don't like the sound of that! I thought the CB were for putting on a helicopter to fly Big Niall and Fergal down for the match anyway only the lads said not to bother? I wouldn't blame them in fairness I think it was a silly idea.

Anyway as I said before I was expecting to take a hit on this game and that we wouldn't win it but I was very disappointed in the performances of our supporting cast! Doherty is probably the most important man in our team and at the minute we have no backup in MF when he's not there. Hopefully Diver can step up to the plate now he's back to a bit of fitness. I think that if we can get him Lockhart, McGoldrick, Murphy, Devlin  and O'Kane some game time before the championship we will be in decent shape for it! That's at least six players from our starting 15 that weren't playing yesterday so we can't be too downhearted about yesterday.

Can't wait for the Tyrone match as I think a win against them will set us up well for Donegal and will set us in a good frame of mind for the championship season. We need to win all our home games to keep our confidence up!

People get things wrong, physio's doctor's, everyone so cut him a break. I don't think his name or relationship with anyone should have been mentioned. Especially when the man who posted it remains anonymous!!!!

Well with 3 weddings on this weekend involving a good few Derry players I wouldn't be too worried about this match. Of course it would be nice to win but I think we should be targeting Tyrone at Celtic Park for a win to keep us up!

Also congrats to the under 21's, will be up against it against down-All Ireland winners at this grade 3 years ago, however it is that same team minus Clarke. Happy for Enda Lynn getting motm, deserved it after all the slack he has taken this past while.

eoghan brown is racking up the scores hope he continues that form for bellaghy.whats the story with seam leo mcgoldrick and crozier?he is always bigging him up,i thought his interview after the first match was laughable,never metioned brown (8 points from play)and talked about how he was not surprised the aussie's were keeping a eye on sean leo who was pretty poor in that match.there has to be somthing behind it did chris brown and crozier have a bit of a fall out?

I wouldn't say that Drumanee by all accounts Sean Leo had a stormer as well as Eoghan Brown. I think SLM got 3 points from play at HF and set up numerous other opportunities and the CDP gave him the MOTM award also.

When working at the bank I was held at gunpoint. God knows if it was even a real gun or if he'd even have used it but it scared the shite clean outta me anyway!

Injury wise I fell off a 20ft hayshed at age 7 head first onto concrete and was knocked out cold... on return to my aunt's house with 2 eyes closed over she said I needed a good rest after my ordeal and I went to sleep for a few hours after which I was awoken by my parents frantically shaking me because they thought I wouldn't come out of it!

Been lucky in my life so far I've never been in a car accident and I plan to keep it that way!

Anyone ever bother with this newfangled idea?

I've subscribed to Ricky Gervais and Today FM's Gift Grub but I haven't really come across anything good apart from those 2.

Anybody else use podcasts much? Maybe someone could recommend some good podcasts to subscribe to.

Cheers.

Anyone at the match last night that wants to give us a report? Must have been a good performance from the younger lads and we have to be looking good for an Ulster Championship at the U-21 grade.

As for the match on Sunday it will be a tough test for us especially if we're missing a few lads for it but I still think we have enough to beat this Galway team.

Personally I am totally against illegal drugs and have never even thought about trying any of them to be fair I have to be in very bad shape to take any kind of legal medication as well.

As far as legalising it goes I would only be in favour of legalising weed. The experience I have had of it through friends who have done it is that there are no lasting side effects and it only seems to calm them down or make them giggle and uncontrollably!

As for other drugs I completely can't stand them and if I thought any friends were doing them on a regular basis I wouldn't be happy at all. Why risk so much for so little gain from what I can see. I also think any sc**bag dealing drugs should be locked up and have the key thrown away on them!

You say you're totally against illegal drugs? What if say cocaine was legalised? Would  it become ok then? Is it the drug and it's effects that you're against or is it the fact that its illegal?

I'd be in favour of some type of legalisation of weed and some of the stronger "hard" drugs. I think this is the only way that the contents of those drugs can be monitored and therefore minimizing the risk to users. I've seen some of these in regular use and apart from the next day hangover/come down there doesn't seem to be any lasting effect that i can see.

I know there are stats thrown around about the number of deaths from alcohol/cigs vs the number from illegal drugs - it would be interesting to get the comparison.

Sorry TYP I didn't explain myself properly I would be totally against any current drugs deemed to be illegal being downgraded or legalised. I just don't agree with recreational drugs at all and to be honest I don't see the point in them.

use tiger woods for example.. 2004 he hits a bad patch. cant sort it out with his coach. so he gets 2 new coaches still cant sort it out. hires a sports psychologist and bang the problem goes. It was all in his head. Now he has a full sports psychologist. Surely one of the worlds all time most successful sports persons (think only beckham and jordan are above him) knows what he's talking about

beckham :o

what about feddeir,schumacher (excuse the spelling)

What about writing CPM07 on your arm during the club cship to signify your goal of the All Ireland Club Final on Paddy's Day?? :D :D

Glad to see O'Sullivan leave and fair play to him for bowing out with a bit of dignity intact anyway!

As for the new manager I would be very much in Dinny's corner about White... a man with a proven track record and no hang ups with regard to any particular province as I think the Munster dominance in the Heineken cup has maybe meant that selection policy for the future has been neglected!

I was at a talk with Willie Anderson there recently and he mooted that Michael Bradley was the man he wanted to be the next Irish Manager. I can't see it happening this early but he may be one for the future and could be brought into the setup with a view to taking the main job himself in a few years.

Yeah as far as I would care I would say I'm from Ballinascreen and then would have to clarify that with most people and say I'm from Draperstown. I know Catholics who call it Draperstown and Protestants who say they're from the Screen but really they're interchangeable for most.

Technically Draperstown is the town while Ballinascreen incorporates Draperstown, the Sixtowns, Straw and Moneyneenagh.

Best one I saw though was a flyer through the letterbox from the Church of Ireland representing the 'Parish of Ballynascreen'! I dunno!

As for Moneyneena/neenagh/neaney/nyeena... who cares? They're only a crowd of munchies anyway! :D :D :D :D
