A strong McKenna and Div 4 will stand to us. We're coming for you Antrim!

Should be a home draw for us v antrim.

We had a bad run with playing Donegal and Tyrone in recent years with an odd win against Down in between! I Another early summer exit I doubt

Irish News report of match:

"After the interval, Coleraine gradually took control. Niall Holly and, in particular, Ruairí Mooney, drove their side on with umpteen raids forward"

Then again, what would they know?!

More than you obviously. You said he was playing as a stopper in the first half which was complete bollocks lad, this comment does not in any way change that.

Div 4 winners, run Tyrone to within 5 points and hit the super 8's by the skin of our teeth...all depending on Macker's squad

The biggest problem with drawing Tyrone again is trying to get players to commit this year.

I saw the GPA ran a report recently that showed inter-county players devoted on average 31 hours a week to football. Players may feel this commitment/sacrifice  is not worth division 4 football and a thumping from Tyrone come May.

Damien must have some sort of panel together at the minute as I am aware they have met a few times. I'm not sure in what context they have met but hopefully he can somehow get a decent panel of men together that are willing to commit. I am also aware there have been players that have already turned down an invite to the county panel already.

I have had that accusation before and I don't know why?

A few people on here know I am not Seanyb1, however I do follow him on twitter for his updates - a great service he runs

What would possess any footballer to play for Derry currently? Busting your balls for ten months, not training with your club, missing social events, to get knocked out in the Qualifiers by Louth or somebody. Bloody depressing.

Lol sorry to kill your Friday buzz Joe. I despair at the current state of Derry football, and I hope it improves as much as anyone else.  But am I far off the mark? The gap between effort and rewards for county footballers (unless you play for Dublin, Kerry, or Galway) is at an all time high. I commend the players who sacrafice it all for County Football, it’s admirable. But I also empathise with players who opt out. Maybe I need to lighten up and have a beer. Damn, I can’t, I have a challenge game against UUJ in a month.....

With a full panel available for all next year's National League games I have no doubt that Derry's preparations  for the 2019 Ulster Championship meeting with Tyrone can be immeasurably enhanced as opposed to the last four years when so many of their top players were unavailable for most of the League games as well as players missing for the Championship games.If they commit fully there are at least 30 players seriously competing for starting berths on the team for next May.To start the ball rolling as it were I would like to see the following  team starting against Tyrone.
                                                  B McKinless
             N Keenan                      B Rogers                  K McKaigue
             C McFaul                        C McKaigue              Sean Leo McGoldrick
                                    C McAtamney           P. Cassidy
             D Heavron                     E Bradley                 N Toner
             E Lynn                           Colm McGoldrick       M Lynch
Substitutes:O Hartin
                    G McKinless
                    P McGrogan
                    C McCluskey   
                    K Johnston
                    L McGoldrick
                    M Bateson
                    M McEvoy
                    C McWilliams.
                    N Holly
                    R Bell
                    J Kielt
                    R Mooney
                    B Heron
                   S McGuigan
    I am sure that I have omitted others  who should be seriously considered, especially new players who have impressed in Derry's club Championships this year at all levels.With proper preparations and commitment by all concerned there is no earthly reason why Derry can not make significant progress in 2010.With all their best players on board, winning the League in impressive fashion, should be a minimum priority.This in turn should be a great incentive to turn in a much improved Championship season in 2019.

Yes it does.  Mooney came in for special mention in the report on the basis of his second half performance. He was more of a stopper for most of first half and very effective in stifling the forward movement of Screen no 5.  Dry up your Baker tears. He was useless to Screen last Sunday.

i hear Gormley has stepped down from Glen.  They were really poor against Lavey on Sunday. 

Why can Glen and Magherafelt not get over the line in senior championship and win one.  Being townie teams is a lazy analysis, but what is the reason considering the amount of good youth players they produce?
It's Called pedigree. Most Successfull clubs have that knowledge of winning championships. E.G. It's taken Banagher 53 years to win an Adult championship. I don't recall Glen winning one and Magherfelt's last win was in 1977

Yeah you weren’t supposed to use lazy analysi!!
