I don't think he is a good keeper but I don't blame him for leaving. Why would you slog your guts out all week only to sit on the bench while a poor managerial team make decisions which hamper the team?

Agree 100% with you Scallion. Sure why would anybody want to be a sub on the county team. All the subs should leave the panel.

It was good enough to be on the panel when he was starting and other keepers were on the bench. He has underperformed for a few years in a row and a keeper has came out of minor, made the step up to u21 and is now getting his chance at senior level.

He has the chance to keep the head down and fight for his spot back or set the tools down and leave the panel in the heat of battle. Says a lot about him IMO.

That's not me saying everyone called upto a county panel should never walk away - I understand men going travelling, men have working commitments etc etc but when you have been part of a panel for a few years and happy when getting game time you cant throw the toys out of the pram for getting dropped - especially when not impressing.

A keeper isn't going to be brought on during a game barring injury. An outfield player has a much better chance of coming on as sub.

Although I do wonder why anyone would want to be a sub who rarely plays on the County team. I'd rather be training and playing with the club than slogging my guts out and hardly ever playing.

It's nothing more than a joke with players running off to America and players walking away because they have been dropped and them poor players at that and McCaigue and and Rogers playing hurling against boys who only started playing hurling the week before.
If the Derry County Board knew anything they would give the match to Tyrone and save some money

Surely Brown isn't 2nd in that list of player after McKinless?

Good club player, but you are bias/deluded

Disappointed to read about mallon and cassidy in the paper today, agree with all has been said about walking away from the panel at this stage. says alot about the 2 fellows.
Nervous about sunday,could get beat out the gate but i will be there cheering the lads on, hope they make a fight of it and good luck to the minors as its a big day for them. The county needs a lift as the year so far for all the teams has been very poor. Didnt realise to recently that our u-17s were hammered by cavan in a special ulster championship

Left the panel a good while ago.. Up to his ears with the work I'm told. Pity, the ideal man for Sunday

Is this post serious?? Michael conlan and mick okane aren't even first choice for their clubs at the minute. Would Shane Mulgrew brian og Mcgilligan Gavin McWilliams, Kearns, Quinn Morgan or McMahon make the current slaughtneil team or the ballinderry team of a couple of years ago?
Fair enough we are missing some good players but don't be making excuses for the sake of it
