I see online that apparently the leagues are changing again this year. League will run off as normal with 11 games. Then it will spilt in half (top 6/bottom 6) where clubs will have another 5 games to decide promotion/relegation.

Also hearing that some of these games will be starred* and without county players.

Anyone able to confirm?

Also hearing that the backdoor championship is coming back?

Where are you reading this online?

From what I heard the championship is straight knockout , but the league is as was mentioned previously -a 16 game league with top/bottom six  split after  11 games

10 mins into second half and we luckily just got a goal to get us into the game. But team selection and tactics have to questioned.  Wind behind our backs and we have 14 men behind the ball at home to Leitrim.  We are in big trouble for the year ahead.  Sweet jaysus.

Not sure about your wind direction but, yes, we are in big trouble and a return to Division 4 not out of the question. Division 2 hopes probably gone already.

Derry were 1/10, biggest favourites of the weekend. It might  be  early but any hopes youse had of promotion took a severe dent, let's put it that way! Not the start that was anticipated!

I did qualify it with ďprobablyĒ. Always wise to actually read posts. Anyhow, based on tonightís lucky escape, which counties do you think Derry will beat in Div 3 this year?

We are capable of beating any of the other teams. Iím not saying we will but Iíll be disappointed if we donít improve significantly.

Disappointing start. Fortunate to get a draw. Where are Cassidy, McKinless and the rest ? Not that I donít know how much difference they would make. Midfield a problem  for a long time and it shows again this evening. Hardly a kick pass into the forwards all night.  Playing a sweeper first half who gives no protection to the full back line.  Every ball first half down the left was won by Leitrim. Gallagher canít change the habits of a lifetime with some lads.  Carrying the ball up the field slowly into a packed defence over and over again.  Doing the same thing thatís not working and expecting different results.
