Our own performance was a lot better today. Unfortunately Sligo couldnt get the other result we needed.....once again we narrowly miss out on promotion for the third year in a row.

Some difference in the Wicklow team and Waterford. Physically and tactically

Another league another post mortem? Is it the case we just do not have the players, the physicality or indeed the Ďprofessionalismí within the county to progress? Is Div 4 the level we are at without radical change?

Whilst I agree apportioning blame will not solve anything if we do not learn from what is keeping us in Div 4 then there is no point in even thinking about championship! As Carl Sagan said to understand the present and plan for the future we must understand our past

Anybody ever think that Antrim, regardless of manager etc. , just aren't good enough.

League never lies.

Mick McCann completely dictated that 2nd half today. Quality. Watched it again.

No. We have been Gladys Knight for the guts of 50 years and we win absolutely nothing at Minor and U21 but Lenny Harbinson and the lack of Casement must carry the can for it.

I would tend to agree. There is no blame here. That position is probably reflective of where we are. Itís not like Wicklow only beat us - they were on another level.

Minors win infrequently, under 21s too. Granted thatís in Ulster where most teams are at a much higher level but still. Division three on a good year and division four more often than not is where we are.

We do produce some real quality from time to time though. Mick McCann an example of that. I would have high hopes for Shivers too as I think he can be that kind of level.

Thatís not being defeatist. I have watched Antrim all my life and am very happy when we win games but more often than not that does not happen!
