If Saturday evening proves nothing else it proves that the game has moved on from shouting and roaring  and slapping your chest. You need tactics and if that is all Joe Cassidy can bring to the table then he would be better going back to Hurling management

And if today proves anything,  Damian should try Croquet

I'd be taking a wild guess that Damian has something to do with Bellaghy's camogs who were defeated at the weekend by Kilrea.

Does he take your minors too TFAL. I see they got beat n Mfelt in championship.

I saw the Twitter carryon myself. Embarrassing from them Bellaghy men.

One of them is the manager of Bellaghy minors, he should look at himself & how the team he coaches only scored 0-9 vs a team who had a player sent off after 15minutes instead of behaving like a child on twitter.

Rather than rehashing who did what and who did not,  regarding one particular club,perhaps we should move on and start discussing our views on  forthcoming club championships.Any predictions as to which players from each of the clubs concerned will prove to be the match winners?Who will be our Ciaran Kilkenny  or Con O'Callaghan,Sean O'Shea  or Paul Geaney when it comes down to influencing the final outcomes.Will  any of the young Swatragh,Lavey,Magherafelt and Glen stars make the step up to becoming proven Senior quality players?Any thoughts out there?

Youd like to imagine so with all the minor successful over the past few years - but dont fool yourself into thinking yous are going to have a player like Con O'Callaghan.
On a side note, heard Slaughtneil are flying this year and are almost a formality for the Derry championship?

I'd say the break they had last year will have made a big difference to them having not had a proper offseason in 4 or 5 years.  There are a couple of teams that could challenge them this year (personally like Swatragh and Glen) though it would be a huge shock it they didn't cruise to the title this year now that Coleraine are gone.

Yes, plays a big factor in it in my opinion. Now that Gallaghers over the derry seniors, do you think he will be bale to persuade multiple faces to come or return to the county team? As its no myth there are high quality footballers who havent give the county much time in the past.

If some of managers were as good at the coaching as they are at whinging about referees and embarrassing the club, we would be in a better place.
Having said that the referee was terrible to both teams

Ballinderry capable of a shock against Slaughtneil but I will go for  a draw.

Swatragh to just get the better of Banagher in a close high scoring encounter

Lavey will be too direct for Glen.

Magherafelt will rue their overenthusiastic celebrations after beating Coleraine as Screen hold them to a low score.

Slaughtneil vs Ballinderry - Slaughtneil
Swatragh vs Banagher - Swatragh
Glen vs Lavey - Glen
Magherafelt - Screen - Magherafelt

I will be shocked if the slaughtneil V Ballinderry game ends without at least 1 man sent off. I predict S'neil to win by at least 6. Lavey V Glen is the hardest game to predict. Draw
Swatragh should win by a few points although Banagher will throw caution to the wind as they've nothing to lose.
Magherafelt and Ballinascreen will be a bore fest. Magherafelt to win in a low scoring affair
