Couple of great coaching sessions online this week hosted by Down county board - more of this innovative fresh approach needed.

Trying to charge a club for zoom meetings is a bit much.

His backroom team was always the problem, the players didn't want Brannigan and he dug the heels in. Typical Poacher and his arrogance.

On a separate note, I see in todays paper we have lost our home games in the national league, it could be a quick return to division 3.

Did he seriously do this?? Or is it the usual tripe being spouted about him just because itís him???
With the season started on Monday past it leaves the Ford in limbo for management or are they sorted already??

He absolutely did Johnny no doubt He put it out there that he wasn't happy with the covid guidelines he was told to work under so he left. It was all money related which is despicable and just pure greed. It probably suited him to leave as Bryansford were gonna be a distraction with him involved with Roscommon as well. I was looking forward to reading the truth in the Newry Reporter about him leaving but all I read was a list of glorious failures with club and county teams over a number of years. No doubt Roscommon will be added to that list quite soon.

Provisional dates out for the leagues to start in Down and not happening until the county is out of ulster . Club players shat on as usual . Also talk of an in league warm up cup competition to use as friendlies before the actual league in order to fend off travelling to other counties . Again a poor idea as any team going for anything seriously will not want to show their hand to the same clubs they will ultimately compete with . It will become farcical with teams using them just to get players game time.  Maybe a better idea would be teams from areas competing against each other from any division . St johns , castlewellan , kilcoo and the Finn for example . If teams are gonna play weakened sides anyway maybe use this freak year and circumstance to give lower league teams a crack at the big boys and see where the standard is at and maybe improve down football as a whole as a result .

Donegal at Pairc Esler is a tough one in a year with no back door.  One to look forward to so we need a good league preparation. They were being talked about as possibly the only threat to the Dubs last year until Cavan tore into them, we will need everything to go right and pray that everything goes wrong for them

Well given that Down have drawn Donegal in the preliminary round on the weekend of 26/27th of June, the leagues should be starting the following week!!

Its the hardest draw we could have got, home or away is irrelevant with no supporters and we certainly wont win that game. That will be 3 years with one championship win v Fermanagh for Tally and co. No Ulster title in 28 years next year, it really beggars belief. Any news on the U20 season, excited to see what Conor Lav can do with that talented group.
