Don’t imagine that’s the plan. It’s always about him. Fecking narcissist. Last summer he had splash all over the papers withdrawing from the race for the Down job. Never in consideration!

Never in consideration because he wouldn’t have Sean og dictating how he’d have to do things the ‘Down way’. Only room for one narcissist in Down GAA.

It’s an excellent article and shows Poacher in a slightly different light than you’d expect. I’m sure most of us don’t actually know the man, other than what we see for 70 minutes along the line. He’s a very well respected coach, who just happens to be working with the opposition today, but behind it all, he’s still a Down man, a passionate one at that.

Seems to have been quite a game in Carlow. Our winning point came in the fourth minute of injury time and, according to the KCLR coverage, Poacher went for the referee at the final whistle. The commentators were frequently confused about what was happening but we appear to have had two red cards for second yellows in the closing stages. KCLR had no clue who went off.

The postponement of Laois v Westmeath complicates everything, and gaa.ie has suggested that it will not be played `this weekend'. Monday may be an option but, if that does not happen,  a decision will have to be taken on staging the final round of league fixtures next week.

Is that 3 of our 5 wins with injury time winners. We could be very easily sitting on 4 pts. But lads have done well to always be in a position to win the games.

Strange match. How Down found themselves in a draw game with time almost up is mad. Down dominated the match from start to finish and missed 4 goal chances. The referee give Carlow some really easy frees. Carlow kicked all but 2 score from free kicks. Good to get a win but that’s a poor Carlow team who lacked any fitness. Heavy suspensions to follow for Carlow after what happened at the end.

Decent team named for tomorrow, with some strength in depth developing on the bench. It's also good to see Donnelly and Mallon back in the match day squad to give us options around the middle. The only negative element is the uncertainty over the final table because of the postponed game between Louth and Westmeath, who should pretty obviously have been instructed to reschedule the fixture for last Wednesday at the latest.

Win tomorrow and we are promoted . No need to worry about anyone else.

Hearing Attical beat Ballyholland by 10 points in Thursday night. Say what you want about him but Poacher done one hell of a job for them.

Need Westmeath and Louth to draw next week to get out of Div 3... how far Down have fallen. Div 3 2020 it is.

Surely a draw would send Westmeath up?

Can’t use head to heads in a 3-way tie, I wouldn’t think.

No head to heads in a 3 way tie. Points difference will decide it. A draw for westmeath next week and we stay in Division 3. A win for either Westmeatb or Louth and we stay in Division 3.We cannot be promoted now.
