Down team:

Keeper - great kick out but dodgy enough in gen play:wud prefer mcveigh Alder is better choice
D Raff - class performance, heart like a lion
Agreed
McArdle - not the answer + roasted by McDonnell
Most full backs can be roasted by McDonald - I'd give him another chance
Dan - not good - struggles for height + pace v top class players
Foul-a-minute will expose us to too many scores
McKernan - played well, composed on ball + seems to have grown set of balls
Improving all the time - definitely his best position
Colgan - did well, hardly put a foot wrong
Showing leadership too
King - 3 excellent catches - looked sound despite recent performances
MOM as far as I'm concerned - a real addition
Ambrose - just ok - didn't get those surging runs going but kicked a glorious free at end
More than ok - put in a power of work despite some loose passing
Kearney - seems to lack confidence to be positive; def a worker - little contribution
James sees something in him - a few more games to assess
Clarke - absolute class act; hurt hip I hear and will be ok
Would prefer to see him play from a wing position
McGinn - love this fellas range of passing + vision
Smart and game, a big addition
Hughes - my MOM - carried ball superbly - serious turbo boost pace
Great performance
Benny - looked like a leader - class all over + trademark catch!
Looks back to his zippy best
Clarke - poor tonight, handling bad which is not like him - Donaghy def had better
Fared ok against a very good defender
Poland - not great, mixed bag
Disagree - I think he had a very industrious and effective game
Laverty - excellent when came on, never lost a ball + used well. Wee hoor lol
A great man to have in the squad.
You omitted Garvey - good solid game
Brannigan looked more than assured when he came on.

Fierce tame altogether

On Saturday nights team

ALDER-  Kick outs were good but seriously at fault for the penalty. Shoulder took McDonnell & ball in first half & indecision lead to Armagh score
MCCARTAN- Ok he was at fault for the penalty but Armagh had a big FF line to be fair. Thought he went well despite fact that certain sections will never give the fella the credit some of his performances deserve
MCARDLE- Good on ball & good athlete but struggled with McDonnells cuteness
RAFFERTY- Downs best defender. Tough in the tackle & lightening quick
MCKERNAN- In my opinion he was poor. Caught 5/6 yards off his man all night. Could have walked on another day for an elbow
COLGAN- Good game & fact Armagh went to 14 allowed him to become the free man. But will be tested by a CHF who plays on him for the full game
GARVEY- No nonsense defender. Does it simple all the time. Good solid game
RODGERS- Quiet enough game but kicked some good scores.
KING- MOM for me. Matched Armagh's physical approach around the middle & came out on top
HUGHES- Worked all night for ball & provided an outlet for his half backs
CLARKE- Was giving McKeever the run around before having to come off. Has given Down a genuine playmaker at 11.
KEARNEY- With tactic of letting Colgan sit free even with 15 Hughes & Kearney are required to do the dirty work. Done his job with no fuss
POLAND- Was out in front but put off the ball too easy at times
CLARKE-Wasnt given enough good ball in. Fighting for scraps
COULTER- Back to his best in glimpses. Put the fear of God in Armagh defenders & his catch near the end was worth the admission alone.
MAGINN-He looked impish on that field!! Lost the ball too many times & cant see him getting in that side
LAVERY-Breath of fresh air. Lifted the side with his workrate & think he will start come the Championship

But we need to get back to reality before getting carried away! Great performance yes but Armagh were poor also.
A few of their boys seemed more interested in getting involved with opposing players than with the game. This suited Down who had the cooler heads & it was evident an Armagh player would walk sooner or later! McKeever & Morriarty were playing into our hands & became distracted by the occasion!
They also lacked a guy able to take out the Down defensive system by putting the ball over the bar from outside the 40. Guys like the McEntees would've done this & in my opinion outside of McDonnell Armagh lacked any genuine threat.
But onwards & upwards for Down who continue to impress under McCartan, McIver & Tally

No word of a starting date. You just have to take it one step at a time with the East Down Board in regards to these matters  ;)

What are Down chances of getting 3 Ulster U21 championships in a row? I think Tyrone have done that before have they?

Ladies and Gentlemen, Ned Flanders Is Back And As Always At Your Service ;)
Great result on sat night, brilliant feeling gettin one over on those apple picking so and so's, even tho it was hard thought and unreal
Clarke piking up and injury gave our boys a boost in my eyes, coulter back to his best and with championship approacing, timing couldn be better :)
To gain promotion in his 1st season for wee james is an incredable achievement, and knowmatter what happens in championship, this can surely be called a successfull season?

I would love a crack at armagh in an Ulster decider, but then again based on sat night, who wouldnt ;)

It wont be easy. Down have a tricky test in Breffni on Wednesday and if successful would face a fancied Monaghan or Antrim in the simi final. If the team click and play to their potential they wont be far away. Many off last years squad are overage but there is some very competent players among Neil Collins' charges.
