Screen overturned reigning champions Glenullin yesterday on a scoreline of 0-12 to 0-5. Good performance from the lads but both teams missing a lot so I wouldn't read too much into it.

Of the team that won the All Ireland in 93, the Downeys, McGilligan and the Mc Gurks were all great hurlers indeed Seamy Downey was a good a hurler as I'ver seen but once football came calling and they were made to make a choice they chose the big ball.



Tony Scullion and Kieran McKeever were both noted hurlersas well!

Disappointing news surely as I was thinking this was the year it would all have come together for him with the county. Will be a big loss to Glenullin's championship push this year as if it wasn't hard enough already to try and retain the championship  they could have done without that!

Irish News brought in the subscription service a good few years ago I'm afraid. It must be a long time since you've been on the site!

Fair play to Reddan, he looks a good bit slower than Stringer but he has much more variety.

Apart from O'Gara, I think we played worse there than at the WC. The Rugby crowd are very polite, what would have to happen before they would consider a slow handclap.

Couldn't believe what I was seeing again today... right back where we lefet off at the World Cup. First 2 mins was great with some great moves from the backs, quick thinking but just a lack of a final ball to seal the game off. Once we didn't do that the whole thing fell apart and we went back to basic errors of handling and conceding turnovers.

My biggest disappointment over the last while though has to be our lineout. We were once considered the best lineout side in the world but now it seems we can't hack it at all. It really gets to me as we see fellas like O'Callaghan, O'Connell, O'Driscoll storming their own lineouts and wrecking their opponents every year in the Heineken Cup. Why can't this be translated to the International scene?

Anyway that result saved us the wooden spoon but I don't hold out much hope for our chances of winning any more games.

Pretty much agree with that Turf. Only a couple of things I would say.

Thought Deighan's kickouts in the second half were very good in very tricky conditions. We were winning midfield most of the time and it was important he kept the ball high and he did. He also did well picking out free men a few times when it was on.

Keenan struggled at the start and had to be moved off Moran after about 10 mins. After this he did do very well though.

Conway struggled in this game and I think he should probably have left the ball for the goal to the keeper for whom it would have been a chest catch rather than him fumbling and then everyone getting confused.

All in all a decent performance in awful conditions. We held the upper hand in most areas and our forwards were very economical with the wind compared to Mayo who were having shots from all angles and missing most of them.

Thought McGuckin and Muldoon were outstanding. I would actually say that Muldoon is one of the best players to have in your team if you're trying to close a game out. He never gives the ball away stupidly when under pressure.

I don't think we'll be in relegation as Laois and Mayo should theoretically be bankers for a team like us at this stage in our development (P.C's 3rd year in charge) while Mayo are missing their Ballina contingent and Laois have lost Kelly and Higgins. Apart from that we have more than a good chance against Kildare who we don't know much about and who we have at home and we can give Galway a rattle as they are another team in transition. If we won 3 out of those four and picked up something against either Tyrone Donegal or Kerry we will stay up quite easily although I would be looking . How many go down anyway is it 2? Anyway as mentioned before we should be content with holding our own in this division and giving the Anglo Celt a good rattle!

It just dawned on me actually that we still have a relatively young team! Take out Muldoon, Lockhart and McCloy and I think every other player is 28 or under! If we do get an Ulster Championship this year or at least a semi final All Ireland place we are in a good position to push on again next year.

I think McEldowney suffered after last week Will. From what I could see he was pushed up on Danny Hughes fairly early on and Keenan moved to Corner Back with McBride moving to the cente after about 10 mins. Hughes had an absolute stormer then and gave McEldowney a torrid time of it but he was on top of his game and I doubt he would do that come championship time. I think McEldowney needs to be in the corner as he doesn't have the necessary power and wouldn't offer enough going forward for WHB. He's very fast, a great tackler and tenacious which I think is everything he needs for the corner. A good option for us in there I think.
