Full bck line in general played with well outside of the goal, and came under more pressure with Hughes and McCarron on up front 2nd half. Bell plays well if the ball fed in on top of him but is no where near the player he was at 19, always looks off the pace. Size wise Monaghan were considerable bigger and no matter how good the younger lads are coming through, they size and muscle is needed more in this team for the Yr ahead. McFaul played well but needed further up the field. E Bradley played very good but again is needed in the forward line not midfield. There are bigger lads in the county capable playing County fball but for various reasons are not available. McCloskey, Cassidy, McGrogan will all be good enough to start in defence of this year. If Derry sort out their half forward line I expect them to get out of Division 3.

Thanks Wildweasel74 for your customary accurate summary of Derry's best performers in the Monaghan McKenna  Cup game.

We must also congratulate Lavey in adding their names to the list of Derry  Ulster Minor club winners at St Pauls just over half an hour ago.By the way Wildweasel, other than Danny Heavron, who were the other capable, well built and tall players who have not made themselves available to the Derry Senior panel this year?

Congratulations to Lavey. A derry team has yet again won this. How much stock can we really put in an average Lavey side winning an unofficial minor tournament? A lot of people getting carried away.

And also who are the tall, strong players who are available but havenít been picked.

 Finally and to keep everyone happy perhaps Wildweasel74 could list the names of all the tall,strong players who are NOT  available  and would be suitable for playing Senior County football for Derry and likewise Lenny could tell us the names of  all the tall,strong players who would make good County men and who ARE available but were not asked!!!

Getting carried away with anything positive is certainly something that you wont be accused of Greenlight.

Congratulations to Lavey minors on their winning of the ulster minor championship.
i was at all three games, real quality stuff on display.

Any truth in the rumours that our senior football captain is taking the reigns at Desertmartin this year?

What a performance from our county hurling champions, Slaughtneil. Serious effort against the best in the country. Great men, Gaeil and club.

This true ? If the case a blow to Derry.  Wouldn't be too many counties who are really serious about it who would have someone in this position who has a load of other commitments.
