A lot of messing about was going on so I think plenty of injury time was needed.

Over 4 mins in the second period of ET
Seemed long

Between Cargin being awarded a free and actually taking it there was a full 2 mins, thats just one play. Thought the time added on at end of normal time and ET was correct. The Cargin ones beside us screaming 'cheat!' at the ref were hilarious. I asked them for one example of what he got wrong and they clammed up.

Aye normal time was probably ok
The 4 minutes at the end of a 10 minute period just seemed strange

I thought it was about right there was that much messing about going on.

Ref was good in my opinion. Terrific game with Lamh Dhearg’s mini-comebacks each time they conceded a goal a joy to watch. Enthralling contest that could easily have gone to penalties. Well done to Cargin.

Great game, some super scores, Cargin really clicked in extra time and played some super football.  Thought LD were better team until cargin got to grips with their midfield in 2nd half and then imposed themselves thereafter.  Conor murray and tomas mccann were unplayable today.     Thought additional minutes in normal and extra time were very strange. 

Ps what numpty thought it was a good idea to turn a disabled man with a ticket away from the game??  Surely anyone with any cop on would realise that was a) wrong and b) would reflect poorly on our occasion??

Any chance that the team from the Belfast can teach their supporters to pronouce the named of the club correctly? "Lamb Derg" makes everyone else cringe ffs

I was neutral on the result until midweek until I seen maritin lynch spouting to the press that they would definitely win the replay.

I have no love for Cargin (mainly due to their “fans”) but glad they won the replay after Lynch’s arrogance / gamesmanship.

I thought injury time was fine. Normal time injury time just about covered how long the Cargin goalie was down for!!

Interesting way of looking at that Stiffler. I took the opposite view though. Heres a manager with 6 tough games played, weariness now a major factor, just after having lost a five point advantage and a lot of people thinking his team had just missed the boat. What would you do if a reporter called asking for a few quotes?

Lynch knew the quote could easily backfire but he took an opportunity to breath a bit of belief back into his players. He took that one for the team was the way I saw the comment. Id expect 9/10 good managers to do the same!

Epic effort by both clubs, great advert for Antrim football, commiseration to LD, and well done Carragan one more time.

I think you give mr lynch too much credit BS.  Some people just love a microphone. He gave cargin's teamtalk for them.

Perhaps we're just used to more humility 🤷‍♂️
Im sure LD will be back hungry again next year

The Chairman’s apology statement to the disabled supporter is going down like a lead balloon.  The question on my mind is he says Belfast City Council wouldn’t allow car access after 2pm.  What’s that all about?  And no matter who sets the rules, are we seriously telling disabled patrons they must be in the ground TWO HOURS before throw-in, while the rest of us finish our dinner.
