Dunloy are absolutely the favourites and rightly so, current league and county champions and unbeaten in 7 league/championship games against the teams that remain in the competition.

Why would anyone not want to be favourites, does losing hurt any less, do teams not try as hard?  I have no idea! My idea of favouritism is an assessment that if everyone plays to their absolute best, the favourite wins!

Dunloy will relish going in as favourites (albeit very marginal) itís a change from outsiders role we have performed the last 10 years.

Any one of the four teams can win this championship, next weekend promises to be a cracker!

I don't think so. St Johns aren't in that arena yet. Improving all the time but will be put away by Cushendall.

Cushendall most improved team? How exactly?
they had the beating of a full strength Dunloy team with some of their main players missing

i left that game against Cdall in the group game relieved to have got the win and disappointed in our performance.

If the shoe was on the other foot and it had of been us missing players and only have lost by 1 point against a full Cdall team id of been quietly very happy with that.

Our footballers are out this weekend in the championship and we have 6 starters from that Cdall game involved with it so its a fingers crossed job we dont lose anyone for the Lgeil game.

Loughgiel v Dunloy Sunday 30th @ 3:30 in Ballycastle

Mouthwatering fixtures

I have no idea why some rank St Johnís as complete outsiders, gave Dunloy all they wanted in last years championship, 2 years ago had Cushendall to the pin of their collar and put up a very competitive display against Loughgiel in this years group stage.

They need a few things to go for them but they have the potential to win a championship!
What happens next????

We certainly are taking them very seriously after the scare they gave us a couple of years ago. They really should have beaten us and we went on to the All Ireland Final. They have a great panel of players who have won minor and under 21. They have the potential to step up to the next level and win a championship.

Division 2 relegation still not decided with Glenariffe beating Ballycastle last night - anyone of Glenariffe , Sarsfields and now tirnanog can go down with Armoy.

Seemed a strange result winning in Ballycastle, inflicting Ballycastles first defeat. But fair play to them

Wouldnít say itís that strange, canít imagine the Ballycastle players have lifted a stick since their championship defeat, and thatís assuming they had their normal full team out.

Anyone any idea whatís happening with the points from the abandoned Sarsfields v Armoy game in the summer? Not scheduled to be replayed on the fixture list

It's not at all strange; out of championship, league points, relagation teams locations - math not hard

Ps. Ballycastle will decide this year's champions

Any predictions for the weekend? I'm not going to predict our own game but the rest as follows:
Creggan v St. Galls - St. Galls by 5
Cushendun v Glenarm - Cushendun by 4
Dunloy v Loughgiel - Dunloy by 6.

St. Galls by 3, Dun by 4, Dunloy by 2 and allow me to predict the Dall match - win pulling up with 5 points to spare.
