Cargin started in the league in research of their strength in depth.
They continued throughout in this mode and absolutely strengthened the senior squad with new youthful faces now within....

Quote from: NorthAntrim on July 03, 2024, 03:48:18 PMTop 4 playoff for the league. Cargin and St Brigids are in. If Creggan and Ballymena win tonight they are in too

If either slip up, St Galls are still in with a chance as well.

It looks like we (TNN) are potentially going to drop from 3rd to 6th on the last night.....

That would be unfair on you to drop as both yourselves and Ballymena have been the surprise packages in the league this year.. Think Ballymena have the toughest ask tonight as Aghagallon are hitting a bitta form and all county players will be out tonight for both. Creggan should have way too much away to Aldergrove and no reason why Ahoghill won't prove to be very stubborn against us tonight.

What's the deal on the points scored? I take its down to head to heads based on that table? so not sure whether we win or not makes much difference

Unless its score difference. Ballymena will be doing well to beat Aghagallon anyway id say

A few surprise results in Division One this evening..!

Quote from: country bumpkin on June 13, 2024, 09:03:26 AMDon't think big Pat Shivers has enjoyed a start time in Saffron thus far....

Head scratcher..........

Hasn't the work rate or athleticism for inter county football

Must be that because ability certainly doesn't come into play with majority of the players on that panel...

If you can't get the ball you cant do anything with it

Quote from: Would ye whist on May 16, 2024, 01:56:46 PMYou mean the dominant force in Antrim football for quite some time now

Also as for the Feile, complete disgrace how Sarsfield's conducted themselves some of our adult mentors even getting assaulted by their U15's

Quote from: NorthAntrim on May 16, 2024, 10:55:55 AMWasnt at the game so relying on a good source

Cargin also scored a few late goals when the game was dead to put a gloss on the scoreline??

I was at it and your source has gave you a phoney account.
Listen I have seen many people comment on here within last 12 months about Bakers negative tactics, I commented something similar after watching them last night.
Ballymena scored their goal along with 3 or 4 points in the last 10 mins, Cargin were 7 points up at half time ended up scoring 6 goals, could have been 10. Just being honest.

You should have went yourself rather than rely on wee Paddy's report.
Ballymena are a well organsised team to be fair to them, just prob need to work on the fitness to keep the lung busting forward runs required up for 60mins
All hail the great glorious Cargin

The dominant force with one victory in Ulster
Think you need to remove the obvious dislike for your neighbours 667 and think again.....the 'dominant force'has more than a single win in Ulster......

Quote from: Níl a fhios agam on March 26, 2024, 09:21:24 AMVery sad news. Football is irrelevant when you hear things like that. Condolences to the whole Moneyglass community where no doubt he will be a huge miss on and off the field.

Yes you hit the nail on the head there.
You think Football is life and death, especially with some of the chat on here!!

The topic around Moneyglass on Saturday evening/Sunday afternoon was whether smileys red card was deserved or not.
And then......

I suppose the thing to be made aware is now, amongst all us men, is to talk. Talk more, ask your friend how you're keeping.
Whether its in the middle of a session, 6 pints in, or driving along in the car and the craic is good. Ask the question. Cause no one knows.

Yes, 99.9% of the time you're going get the standard answer - yes all good.

But maybe one time, someone will open up lives will saved.

Well said.

All well said but sometimes one tragedy in the extreme forgets to consider another.

Wee Jacks passing was and is mourned quite rightly by a multitude, but please give a thought to another young lad from Creggan who decided to leave this world far too soon, immersed in despair and loneliness.

Rest in Peace Joe Pat, back with his mum and dad.

Is 'Gaelfast' a body only interested in Belfast based schools for their awards?
South West clubs with huge attendance at St Pats, St Mary's, St Pius x, and St Ronans not mentioned.

Quote from: InnocentByStander on November 14, 2023, 11:01:42 AMOn another note, What the f+ck is the point in the restructuring of the leagues, all its going to do is make our intermediate and junior leagues weaker, going to lead to more dead rubber games at senior level.

Our "best" intermediate teams got hammered by a poor glenuillin side what the hell will our 4th best team not be like...

That is a question for the outgoing County chairman and his sidekick...could he have a vested interest...?

Quote from: Silver hill on November 13, 2023, 10:27:27 PMCargin learnt nothing from last year. What's the point it just trying to contain Glen? 2 points from play this year, similar last year. Why not have a cut if your players are as talented as you say they are? Some bit of whinging this year and last. If that's the height of your ambition; to limit Glen to a 4 point defeat, then you're never going to get past a first round in ulster. As for us, this is all new territory and we'll enjoy our moment on the sun as we know we'll fall back into the pack like every other club does. I'm enjoying the ride so far, we'll see where it ends. Not playing that well this year but just about doing enough. Our wide count yesterday is worrying as they were from good positions and under minimal pressure. We won't get away with that down the line. Scotstown looking like the firm team, that was a big scalp to take yesterday. 9 county players, jack mccarron now transferred in, they'll be hard to stop I think

Think you need to gave a word with your 'stats man' S H Cargin did score three points from play, not a lot but  Glen managed just  one more...2 from J Doherty, one each from corner back Michael Ward and Ciaran Mc Faula.
The rest from placed efforts, a few questionable.....

As for outa form players did Conor Glass get a kick at all?

Think you need to take another peek and at your recording and keep fingers crossed the Cavan man may be recalled North if Glen reach the final...
