The minor game was a very one-sided affair.

Are Derry that good a side?

Are Antrim that bad?

Ethan, my thoughts on that are well known, but as a manager I know how raw defeat can be, and i wouldnt want to be putting the boot into anyone at this time.

i would have preferred to have put up a credit worthy performance at least, but two scores from play in an hour is not good in anyones book. I`d say the powers that be will have their own questions to ponder, and I know they will deal with it as they see fit.

I`d be well impressed with Mc Sparrans ability to make hard calls, and trust his judgement on this one.

Antrim Football needs the very very best coaches/personell, from u-14 to u-21, the development journey, and this would be a priority for us all. But now is not the time or place for recriminations.

antrim minors just didnt turn up on sunday.
they couldnt do the simple things and the conditions cant be used as excuse because it was the same for both teams.
they couldnt hold onto the ball, couldnt pick it up first time and they couldnt get out in front of their men.
the defence done ok considering they were under seige, but the forwards were woeful.

at the start i thought they half back line and midfield fannied about with the ball too long before putting it into the forwards, but the forwards werent showing and werent interested.


mcdooooowell who have you managed b4 apart from sean stinsons u12's or u14's.
i know ur interested in motorbikes did you managed any of the dunlops, joey or rab! :)

Name and shame the seniors who had to re arrange their flights for america from last monday to next because of the match being rained off?

who are they all, I personally think they are cheating the whole county with this attitude.

Slim does it not get up your nose to the extent that you loose respect for players who have planned to go to the states. In their minds they have excepted defeat...and that after all is the first battle that has to be won if winning in the championship is what a footballer wants to achieve. If players have done this why do they deserve to be shown respect. if you were offered the chance to play in the championship for Antrim, would you not jump at the chance, change your entire life to allow you make the best of that opportunity.

Therealslimshady

do you think this is right for antrim footballers to book to go to america a day after their first round game?

what does this say about their attitude?

or maybe you agree with them?

no, i dont think its right at all. The management must know something about it though and therefore should have ruled them out long ago- regardless of it weakening the team. There is no 'i' in team.

Lads listen to the whiter than white posters on this site. Yes I think that players should have the decency to arrange these things after the fact. And if they run around publicising that they are going out to the states on such a date so soon after the championship game then they are wrong.

But are they wrong to be going to play and be offered all sorts of dough for a game they love playing. You boys are complaining about them not committing to the county, spare a thought for senior management of both teams in Naomh Gall, who will be without these lads. Do I have a grudge at them for going away? No, I did it when I was there age. Do I need them playing for the club? Yes, but what can you do. Wish I had the opportunity.

 Lets not get bogged down on the McGourty’s going to the states. Every club has had someone go (we have 6 dual senior players heading off), as far as I know it’s not a hanging offence.

 So lets talk about Antrim beating Derry this Sunday I’m bored of this topic

I don't think the discussion is against people playing football in the states, every young lad would love that....no its about what message does it say about their will to win against derry when they have it pre arranged to go after the derry game :o :o
