Underachieved? Who managed them 10 years ago

Iíd suggest that in order to underachieve you have to be clearly better than your opponents at least occasionally, but never do it on the big day.

Thatís been a few clubs in Down in my lifetime, but itís never been Ballyholland in senior football. Not yet.

What are you saying Wobbler because I can't make sense of your post?

Interested to read in Irish News that Conor Laverty is part of Banty's backroom team at Monaghan.  No doubt the Farney men remember his second half performance against them in the 2012 Ulster semi final.

Talking to a few Burren men yesterday at Croker, they are dying to get Carryduff next round.. Obviously very confident about tonight's game.. I feel Rostrever could cause an upset

If burren play as bad as they did against Castlewellan they could be in trouble

Morgan Fuels SFC quarter finals
Kilcoo v Burren
CPN v Longstone
Mayobridge v Ballyholland
Carryduff v Clonduff
You can't live off history and tradition forever

Not the same Burren team as in the past; struggled against a depleted Rostrevor till the last few mins. Bu being underdogs vs Kilcco might suit them

Kilcoo struggled against Rostrevor too, maybe they are not that bad. Burren were underdogs for the final last year and beat them!

Donít think Iíll be putting money on any of these next toes, all fairly even games I think. My predictions would be: Kilcoo, CPN, Mayobridge and Clonduff. Got Longstone wrong in the last round though and they seemed to have done a good job last night.

A poor enough champ thus far, Warrenpoint will be quietly confident of claiming their first trophy since the 50ís, the pressure is certainly on them.

Iíd say the pressure is more on an underperforming reigning county champions team.

We are massive underdogs against the championship favourites but we need a massive improvement to test Kilcoo. Iíd imagine Kilcoos injuries will be cleared up by then.

What an experience this year must be for Ballyholland. Everyone writing them off. Watching the game against loughinisland their panel must consist of about 8/10 18-20 year olds. Great to see.
