Anyone heard anything about the next round of the championship? I've heard next Sat and Sun but nothing confirmed! I'd bet if them Sneil wans were still in the cship they would have already updated us on it... come on pull the finger out!  :P

Can't remember what way the leagues finished but i'm sure magherafelt or glen finished above banagher or screen (the 4 teams in the playoffs)

Nah this is the table at the end of last year's season.

Ballinascreen  16    7    6    3   177    198    -21    17
Banagher     16   7   7   2   212   196   16   14
Magherafelt    16   6   8   2   197   213   -16   14
Glen       16   6   9   1   185   206   -21   13

Seems strange then as to what way the seedings were worked out???

No seeding Bogball... Ballinderry, Banagher and Screen all premier sides. It's an open draw again for the QF AFAIK.

I think our system is good. Yes maybe the matches aren't as intense but compared to the previous system the 3 matches per team per section is compensating for 8 first round games. From the QF on I can guarantee that all games will be a hundred miles an hour from now on in. ALthough Ballinderry will still win it at a canter!

What's the story with that group then?? If GLewn win by more than 3 then they're through? (Presuming Craigbane get beat also). SHould be an interesting enough situation come this evening.

So the teams for the QF will be (In Alphabetical order):

Magherafelt (Probably)

What games would everyone like to see at this stage?

My preference would be:

Screen v Magherafelt
Glenullin v Bellaghy
Ballinderry v Loup
Dungiven Kilrea

I think these would be four good games and as far as I'm concerned... the championship starts now... you lose you're out!

Bellaghy through - doesn't matter by how much they still grinded out a result  - that's why they are always there or there abouts and why they are the team to fear

Not that 'Team we all fear' crap again! Even Max wouldn't say that at this stage.

At the mo favourites are
1. Bellaghy
2. The Glen
3. Ourselves
4. An Lub / Dungiven

based on the groups..
:D :D :D :D :D

You are having a laugh aren't you??

Don't see too many people wanting the Shamrocks beaten either. Most people understand that you play a good brand of football and that you are a sporting team... Everyone always likes the underdog to win which is the reason why we like the Shamrocks to lose. It will not happen this year!!!!!

We've a few ginger supporters in fairness (not a lot of sunlight about Ballinascreen;) ) but I'd reckon it was probably Tony Scullion's brother Pelé.

Oh and the fact he gave a wrong decision isn't the problem. It's the fact that he clearly realised he'd made a mistake but instead stuck to his original decision for some unknown reason!

I would have thought this was the perfect time for EOS to leave after the world cup! He's been there a while now and I think that someone with new ideas and a new take on things should get a full four year tilt at the next world cup.

Very uncool milkman... this is a place for discussing what is currently happening ont he show. Not what's happening in the future.

As for what's happening at the minute, it's great TV. I knew Boyd would come good in the end and I think there is still a spark with him and Janae and I hope the kids can work it out.

How does Kaal get himself into all these awkward situations?? His boss fancies his wife who he thinks is Kaal's sister?? How do they come up with these things??

It also highlights the failings of the new championship structure - screen have lost 2 games but are still in the quarter finals, i'd say they are not complaining though

 ;D ;D ;D ;D Correctomundo!!

Yeah very poor game of football last night! We were completely oputplayed for the first 20 mins of the match and only for our keeper making a great save, a great catch and a great (cynical, dirty) tackle on an onrushing Banagher player it could have been a very different affair last night. Oh and did anyone see JJ Cleary blow a free to Banagher for lifting the ball off the ground... no not a Screen man, a Banagher man lifted the ball clean off the ground about 30 yds from our goals and JJ gave ML a gift of a point for it. What's worse is that he realised he had made the wrong call but decided to stick with his decision to give a free. Scandellous decision and to be fair it wasn't one of the referee's best performances! He's lucky it wasn't a more high profile match with more at stake as other teams wouldn't usually forgive that kind of error!

In the first half Banagher controlled midfield and were hitting direct high ball into Biggs and Lynch which was paying off for them. They seemed to move away from this 2nd half and both Biggs and Lynch were largely anonymous for a large part of it. The goal was slightly fortunate but on the balance of things I'd say Banagher were value for their victory.

Sad to see Richard Feeney have to come off the physio reckoned it was a broken ankle but hopefully he makes a good recovery from it.

All in all it was a tough position for us to be in going into the match. The 9 pts thing will probably always stick in the back of your head in these things and it certainly seemed that way. I'd keep an eye out for our next league match against Banagher as I can assure everyone it will be a battle considering the position we are both in at the minute.

As for the cship Tom O'Kane mentioned that it would be on Fri and Sat of next weekend i.e. 7/8. Can this happen as we also have the hurling cship next Tuesday???

Not that it's enforced much but I think the rule for hitting a free kick too short is crazy... why after giving the team an advantage would you remove it from them??

As someone who likes nothing better than to make a flying leap over 5 men and come down clutching the ball in your chest I think the mark from a kickout is a great idea! In fairness I notice that a lot of referees will give the advantage to the catcher when he comes down after a fine fetch and give a free if they get set upon by the opposition.

The forum has definitely had a turn for the worst. When the forum was smaller there was good debate and a lot of good banter with contributors... with more posters came more people offended by the banter and also those who took the banter a bit too far which has led to both extremes of people taking more offense and others taking their wind ups further.

There is probably a case to have an elite forum where only certain people have access to it but as someone said. WHo is going to vet potential applicants/stop WUMs etc. Even with that there are times when reputable members go over the top with their remarks so it would be extremely difficult to police!

As someone has mentioned the local club pages are where most have the decent debates but once it starts going on county teams there is too much crap that goes on!

Banagher to win by 4-5 and Ballinderry to win by plus 8.

To be fair J.F. hasn't been on either senior panel because of his involvement with the county minors although I'm sure he will be in our panel when his involvement is over.

Any ideas when the Screen Sneil match will be then? I know there have been problems due to holidays for our players so hopefully this will be sorted out with a new date.

What's the craic with section 3? Which of those matches would be best to go and see?
