Sligonian - neither Meath nor Kildare would be regarded as physical teams.  Kildare play at a decent tempo but Meath are eminently beatable on any pitch. Sligo have started the last two league campoaigns slowly - something that they need to correct this time out.

I agree with Ross4life thet that last game against Kildare could be critical but I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it ended up as a shoot out for a promotion and League final place

I disagree with your point on meath and kildare not being physical, there alot bigger physically than us, is it even worth debating its that obvious. I disagree that we need to rectify starting slowly, honestly fck the league, get the team sorted, going for the fitness advantage at the start just gives a false impression of where the team is at. I disagree that we will going for league final place at the end, if we dont beat Donegal we will be relegated and im not to bothered as long as i see improvements towards the end with a fb, chb sorted and other areas strengthened.

Just want to add my congrats to Western Gaels on a deserved win. Even though I was disappointed for our lads I was happy for some of the victors with the sheer joy they displayed. Our lads have plenty to take from this and if they learn from it then surely the day will come when we land our first senior hurling title. All our team are 24 or under. Just want to mention the support both sides had - it was fairly big. Good to see.

Amazing that this late in the year things are still so busy. Our minors are in a shield final on Friday night in Tourlestrane, U-16 hurlers in Connacht action away to Tooreen on Saturday and U-20 footballers away to Tubber on Sunday. Thankfully the weather is glorious at present and long may it last.

Congrats to Western Gaels, hopefully a few of them will dawn the black and white in future.

Best of luck to Harps on sunday in Kiltoom, be the first part of the revenge factor for crushing defeats this yr.

Best of luck to Easkey and St Pats in a Markievicz double header this sunday.

Charlie becomes Sligo 4th Allstar

Congrats to Charlie Harrison on becoming Sligos 4th Allstar. Delighted for him. It is a suprise but a nice one. Whilst hes not as good defender as Ross he does attack from the back at pace and not many players in Ireland are as good as Ross. Congrats to him. Delighted.

I think he deserves it. He was excellent in all games i seen him play (didn't do Down) and kept his man scoreless in all games. His move to wing back against Roscommon turned game in our favour  - if he was moved sooner we may have won it. MOTM against Galway in replay where he was involved in many scores. I agree Ross Donovan should have been in with a shout also.

Thats true to a certain extent, he did foul alot in the connacht final, and ronan murtagh scored 1-5 in 20 mins on him against down but he was left one on one isolated, im glad but Ross is a better defender. I see Harrison as a better half back and he proved it to me when moved out in the Galway replay and Roscommon game.

Surprised by the scoreline gap but not by the result. Harps were there for the taking on county final day also. Tourlestrane were beginning to pull away when centre back and full back went off injured. O'Hara was also not fit and Neary and Henry were left on the bench.
Harps full back line were cleaned for the first 20 minutes until ball stopped going in and had to rely on Taylor for scores and of which 3 were gifted by Tourlestrane keeper. Still very surprised by 17 point difference.

Second time this yr we scored only 4pts against a roscommon team. Its time we took a look at ourselves.

People think Sligo will kick on next yr, i have my doubts, we are in for a few heavy lessons in div2. That leitrim game worries me.

These type of results piss me off as it seems to happen us regurlarly but not anyone else.

The standard of club football has gone way down in Sligo at all levels. The county side is a different issue. If you have a good manager and 20-25 decent players the standard of club football matters little (cos they rarely play it anyway). Of course the county team gets the notoriety and is wrongly identified by many as the weather vein of the health of a county. In our case its papering over the very large cracks.

u21 Sligo v Galway  Connacht semi final Sligo home venue

Minors Sligo v Galway Connacht QTR Sligo home venue
winners  v leitrim

Juniors Galway v Sligo Connacht Semi Galway home venue

FBD league has changed with Sligo/ IT Sligo/ Galway and NUIG in our side, tougher games than with Leitrim and GMIT on the other side so happy enough. January 9th Enniscrone and Galway up first.

Senior club Leitrim v Sligo QTR
Roscommon v winners

Overall a few 2 semis and 2 qtrs Avoided mayo and roscommon in u21 and minor is good as we have beaten Galway underage over the last few yrs. Happy enough.

SENIOR CONNACHT CHAMPIONSHIP DATES

Sunday 1st May New York Roscommon Gaelic Park
.
Preliminary Round Sunday 29th May London Mayo Ruislip
.
Preliminary Round Sat 4th/Sun 5th June Sligo Leitrim Markievicz Park, Sligo
.
Semi-Finals Sat 18th/Sun 19th June Sligo/Leitrim New York/Roscommon Sligo/Leitrim venue
.
Semi-Finals Sat 25th/Sun 26th June London/Mayo Galway McHale Park
.
Final Sunday 17th July

This actually annoyed me, we are the last QTR final but if we win that we are the first semi final, Also our minors are at home to Galway on the 25th the same weekend as the second Senior semi, why didnt they put our potential semi final on the 25th and have Sligo v Galway minor as curtain raiser.

Sligo/ros/leitrim have 4 weeks to wait from semi final to final. At least should help our lads not be burned out if we get that far.
