The U20 game being a Wed night in Omagh isn't ideal for supporters. But it may be on tg4 youtube. Unfortunately Ulster and Munster U20 are straight knockout. Beating tyrone in their own backyard a youth ask. They are the yardstick so a good performance is required.

Sometimes we look no different from other years. Still afraid to take a shot at the posts from distance. Longford scored some magnificent points from distance last night. Dreadful injury not really sure what happened. Did he land badly. Championship 6 weeks away it's a big ask for this team to get past Donegal

I was in Newry last night. Longford took some magnificent scores. I wish Down had that in their locker. It was a very tough Division. Most teams not that far off eachother bar Cavan.  Should be an Interesting Tailteann Cup.

Serious performances by Omagh in the semi and final...winning by 18 and 17 points respectively. Almost a pity it was so one sided as the atmosphere never really got going in Croker. Great achievement for my own club having 3 players on the 15 one being the captain with 2-5 from play and another being man of the match.

Any one of 4 or 5 schools in Ulster could have made a great cracking at winning today. Standard very high across the province this year.

Surely a good few inter county players come from that side. Serious talents with serious attitudes

Doubt it. Schools football hugely over rated. Be doing well to get 5/6 top club players from any school side. Hogan winners or not!
From the St Colmans Newry side that won 2 hogans in 10 and 11 AFAIK Caolan Mooney, Jerome and Ryan Johnston, Niall McParland, Niall Donnelly, Donal O'Hare and Ross McGarry. There were others on that team that played for Armagh so I'm not sure if any of them went on to play at senior level with Armagh. Honourable mention to Shay McCartan who went on to play professional soccer across the water

How many of them would you call established county players? I wouldn't say one! And that includes Mooney. Maghera had numerous sides that won and reached Hogan finals over 3 or 4 years. Conor Glass and Shane McGuigan the only two to really come through to play at a high level.
Mooneys been playing every year bar the years he's had bad injuries since he was a minor. Donal OHare was consistently our top forward for the best part of 5 years. Jerome and Ryan have been established for a long time as well
Saying colleges football is seriously overrated bacuse few make county teams is like saying Minor football is also overrated. I've seen many an entertaining game in colleges football.  How many of the great St Colmans and Maghera sides in mid to late 80s went on to play for their counties? and win Sam.

Rathfriland and Warrenpoint Co.Down.

Casemiro cost utd today. Stupid tackle. Hard to win a game playing for an hour with a man less. Good point in the end.

If every player was willing to commit in the county, realistically how many players would get in the 15 that isn't on the county panel now
All of these would be in with a good shout of the team. 2 Guinness And McGeogh from Carryduff', Quinn from Mayobridge, Dabs and possibly Ward from Kilcoo,
And is there a reason they aren't iin the panel? Is Quinn travelling? Injuries or any other reason keeping the rest out? So pretty much the best players in the county are making themselves available?  Will Mooney be available when back from injury or has he retired from county?

Give the management team a chance. MeGeeney took a while to get Armagh where they are now. Down are a work in progress and will be for a few years. Same with Derry.

Iím running the Manchester marathon in a few weeks, thinking of getting 7-0 printed on a Liverpool shirt to wear for it  ;D
You should yes. It might help you run faster

Cavan look a serious outfit. It will be a tough place to go and get a result. With longford at home and Offaly away to follow promotion is in our hands. But if cavan win this weekend then how focused will they be last day against fermanagh.

UTD controlled that game really well in 2nd half. Great to get back to winning trophies. On to the FA cup Wednesday night.

Think Liverpool will bring them back to real next week. Rashford while involved with that goal looks tired..

Itís certainly a busy condensed season
Next Sunday is liverpools Cup final
 They will throw the kitchen sink at utd. Nothing left for them to play for this season.

I donít think many teams would be struggling.
70% of clubs got some work done this past 10 years and have fully floodlite lights and a second pitch
Kilcoo Clonduff Dromara Ballymartin Mayobridge Burren CPN Bright to name a few
Ballyholland would be struggling from what I hear
A question for wobbler and a genuine one would Ballyholland not have been better to build a wee pitch where the stand is and floodlight it? Is the stand necessary when you could have had a pitch. This is only from someone looking in I could be totally wrong

Harps are now in the 4th year of a planning battle to build a second field that runs behind the stand. We need to take a few metres of bog (we own) to make this happen and it continues to be the falling down point. We are in the unfortunate position that the needs of newts and bats moving a couple of metres, has somehow trumped the needs of a community.

You honestly couldnít make it up. But thatís where we are at.
it's not as if it's a known fact that bog is usually protected.

Maybe, or you could see the second season syndrome, where thereís bigger expectations and more pressure. Without a bigger win, thereíll always be that pressure to show improvements.
We had posters on here calling Klopp a flop in his first couple of seasons. But Liverpool fans could see the change that was happening within the team. Then the performances started to follow, and then the silverware. Which is why all Liverpool fans are happy to stick with Klopp as he has those trophies in the bank now. And it had been a long wait.
I think thereís definite potential there with EtH. And he seems to be having a good impact on existing players similar to Klopp. Shows heís a good coach.

Yeah that one PL title is going to keep them going for another while yet  ::)

United be happy with one now me thinks!!
If Man United win in the next 5 years what Liverpool have won in the past 5 years Iím sure they will be very happy.
One league and one UCL.
For all the hype, it's not a massive haul for Klopp's 8 seasons in charge.
He took over a team that were one slip from winning the league a year earlier.
True. But they were unlucky coming up against the City machine. Look at the points totals for those seasons in 2nd place. Huge difference from the previous yo-yo years.
The next one will be hard won as well given the money other clubs are spending as United know as well.
Every runner can say they were unlucky. They just weren't good enough. Utd can say they were unlucky in 2 CL finals v barca. The 2 titles they failed on GD. Fact is we weren't good enough. End off.

Massive win, Fred get's serious bad press but second half he was excellent. Martinez best signing in years.
Fred doing well now he has a proper player beside him. Magnificent tonight.
