Cross supporters show again what scumbags they are.

What happened?

Cross supporters show again what scumbags they are.

What happened?

First of all, there was an excellent game of football. Maghery deservedly won the game by 2-13 to 0-16. I was fascinated to see what might be the fallout from the first game between these two - would it instil in Maghery the confidence to beat Cross when it really mattered. We got our answer tonight. Maghery played with the confidence of a team who knew they had the beating of Rangers, and when Rangers threatened a great comeback (narrowing the gap from six points to one point) they never panicked and eased to victory.

Unfortunately the game was marred at the end when one Cross player in particular experienced what I can only describe as a meltdown of discipline and started a major row right by the fence on the Drumarg side of the ground, which prompted incursions from the stand.

Who was the Cross player who started it all then? the

I can be contacted through the Facebook page. thanks

Where to now for Armagh club football with Harps and Ballyhegan easily eliminated by average teams in the first round of the Ulster Senior and Junior Championship?

You'll just have to bring back Cross'.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

What is wrong is staring people in the face but they refuse/cannot see what is wrong. Nothing to do with us or our success but a lot to do with the overall coaching strategy within the county.

great to see you obviously weren't at the athletic grounds today then Tony.

Maybe don't just read the score and then pontificate
Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity

There is a new county board strategy that talks broadly about the importance of links with schools and clubs (i think!) but the bottom line is how these things get implemented.
I'll have a shower and then phone my brother up

Took in u20 game last night. Good to get a win after the recent horror shows of the seniors and u17s.
Armagh pulled away from Fermanagh in the last 15 mins but to be truthful Fermanagh were very poor and this group of Armagh players should be beating them out the gate. Individually Armagh players were better than their direct opponents and at the end the result reflected this.

However, talented and all as they are I do believe that Tyrone will beat them comfortably (I hope I’m wrong) as the team seemed to be  sent out to play the same way as the seniors with players been allowed the option of hiding out around the middle,opponents waltzing through this zonally marshalled defence without a hand been laid on them and if a defender does get the ball there is no outlet ball. It would appear that all our development squads are playing this way as well. This is quite in unnerving.

There is a real risk that Armagh could waste another generation of talent here if the current approach is not, at the very least, reviewed but preferably binned and a new approach developed and implemented. There is a fundamental problem with regard coaching within our county and it needs to be addressed urgently to halt the apathy towards the county team that is, I feel, currently increasing at a alarming rate.

For the record, this is not a “McGeeney out” rant, as a lot of these problems have manifested themselves before kieran’s time but he has probably been shown up to be out of his depth over the course of the last four years with Armagh. (Last year favourables draws in the qualifiers papered over the cracks of a bad year when promotion and a win over down were the only the two results that mattered)

There is definitely the talent in the county to be doing better than we are showing at the minute and I hope we can find our way to harness this talent and at least getting us to be challenging for an Ulster at the very least.

The Championship Ticket costs Ł85 or €100. My understanding is that it is available now. It is available from the County offices in the Ceannarus Building at the Athletic Grounds.

We should revive this thread. Senior championship is looking competitive and wide open. Interesting at the very least even if it isn't of the highest quality

I'd be curious as to people's views on the new Championship format.

I personally think we have something close to perfection as regards league, championship and the connection between the two, albeit that it has taken us a long time to get here and a lot of trial and error in the process.

One of the criticisms I have heard is that the round robin group stage takes 24 matches to get rid of just 4 teams. However the Clann Eireann delegates at the County Convention explained that three going forward from each group was necessary to ensure there were no dead rubbers. I'm convinced by that argument, as I'm sure we would have the old 'w/o - dnf' combination in our Championship fixtures list which would relfect terribly on our Championship.
