Haven’t seen nor heard much on the movers and shakers managerial or coaching wise yet from Derry. Anyone got a run down of who’s in charge at where? Did McKaigue stay on with Desertmartin?

No - McKaigue gone from Desertmartin

Matt Doherty and James mcclean have tested positive for covid19, rest of squad tested negative.

Burke and McEniff of Rovers, Taylor of Peterborough and Parrott of Milwall called up.

Kenny has 14 players out. The man has had no luck.

All international football should be suspended until such times as they can better control it. Some point the players all being in these bubbles to then every month or so land into a squad and backroom staff completely new.

I read yesterday on BBC Sport that 14 premiership footballers have contracted Covid over the international break.

I agree that all international football should be halted during these times.

@Niall_Gartland


Feargal Logan and Collie Holmes are the most likely candidates for the Tyrone job. Lot of chatter that Harte won’t be putting his name forward but nothing official on that at this stage.

Dungannon Could be the big losers here.... Logan Dooher and Holmes... That is the word on the street in these parts!!

Add McGleenon to that ticket and that could be the one.

I heard Adrian Cush mentioned

Someone based with the Universities worth a shout? Deegan or Paul Rouse, could even give O'Rourke a chance to implement his grand idea

He would take Antrim to Division 5

14 day quarantine with their work from travelling to the north  :(

We're like lepers up here lol.

Not good. The whole thing needs called off.

How do you combat the likes of that work thing? You would need to play all the games down south.

If true, an absolute disgrace but it should be noted that this was a secondary complaint from them after the thinly veiled jibe that they wanted Antrim to come and meet them halfway to play at a neutral venue, which was rightly refused.

A poor statement by Waterford IMO.

No issue with any team not feeling comfortable at the minute and not fielding a game, especially a meaningless one for them. However, don't try and push the blame towards the opposition.

I believe that there are 28 players in the Derry Senior football panel.Four players who started against Tyrone in last year's Ulster championship game have been omitted for this year's panel ie Niall Keenan,Ryan Bell,Liam McGoldrick and Conor McAtamney (Incidentally Paul McNeill was also a starter in that side but was missing for the league owing to an injury).It would appear that Rory Gallagher is placing a lot of emphasis on the younger talent within the county.Hence the inclusion of Paul Cassidy and Ethan Doherty.

The most surprising omission from that missing quartet is Niall Keenan who has been one of Derry's most consistent players for the last four years.Likewise the inclusion of the inexperienced Connlan Bradley as goalkeeping cover for Odhran Lynch is also a surprise.

Perhaps some poster could give us the names of the full panel as I feel there must be other omissions from last year's panel which was certainly much larger

I think Niall Kennan is away to England to study, also obvious reasons for McGoldrick to be omitted.
Paul Cassidy had a very poor season for Bellaghy IMO, I was really looking forward to seeing him this year however he doesn't seem to have taken to Senior football as well as I thought he would, albeit he's had his injury problems. I'd imagine he will be one for the future with little game time this season.
Paul McNeill is a very welcome addition, quality defender.
Connlan Bradley in nets is a strange one. This time last year he had never done nets in his life before. He has ended up doing OK but there are a lot of keepers ahead of him in the county.

Where in England is he

Not 100% sure, but I remember reading a while back (maybe in the Derry post) that he was going to do a 2 year course in England to become a chiropractor.

Taking the Watties and our fellow parishioners to Celtic Park. Ridiculous.

That game’s made for the Screen.

Absolutely crazy but I reckon the shiteness of many streams from other locations means they need to take the game to Celtic Park which would be better set up for broadcasting.

The match shouldn’t be near Celtic Park regardless of streaming or not it’s a stupid decision!
Perfectly valid decision to take it to Celtic Park if it means it can be seen clearly on a live stream by the thousands of people who under normal circumstances would attend but cannot this year.

I would agree Oakleaflad

Horrendous result last night, sh!te team selection & sh!te performance too. Kept talking in commentary that Celtic need to score some of the chances they are creating. However for all the possession celtic had I thought they created very little clear cut chances.

The new keeper also hasn't impressed me so far, he'd need to improve ASAP.

We will maybe see if Messi can join Ronaldo and 'do it at more than one club'

I have no doubt whatsoever Messi could 'do it' in any league in the world.
