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...

Quote from: WattyMan on November 13, 2023, 06:56:54 PMHaha, you Cargin boys are shocking.
Suppose every other team that beat you every other year were being protected too? 1 win in Ulster and you would swear your one of the top teams. If Glen wanted to hammer you, they would have. All we needed to do was beat you and move onto the next round, simple as that. Them lads are building for bigger challenges. Now just enjoy your Antrim championship and be happy with it, you were never gonna win Ulster

Glen have had 2 goes at 'hammering' Cargin now and it hasn't materialised yet. Yesterday they couldn't manage it playing two thirds of the game with an extra man and Cargin unjustly having their best forward who'd started well sent off.  You may well hammer the rest of the Derry club teams, but maybe your much lauded club scene isn't just as good as you think it is.

Glen players lying around holding their heads after no contact (Tomas' red and John Carrons yellow) was a total embarrassment from Derrys best club team.  This from a team and a club who whinged like babies and wanted a replay for a guy not interfering with play on the pitch for a few seconds last season.  Class act on and off the pitch it seems!!!

Let's see how that building for bigger challenges goes. There will come a point when you're not the precieved big match favourite beforehand and you won't have a weak referee out is his depth pandering to you.

Go easy on the Watty boy he has to finish his homework...
Sure his team have won an amazing 3 county titles and are chasing the likes of Bellaghy and Ballinderry.....who were real champions.

Quote from: NorthAntrim on October 13, 2023, 09:33:35 AMAntrim all stars shortlist released. I know the funding maybe isnt there for it but id like to see one for each grade. Seann Elliot up against C Johnston. Both deserve one. As do D Smyth and N Swann at 6

Agree with that, some positional changes to suit some but to have both those lads at 10. isn't right.

It's a nonsense and really is a waste of time.

Neither of those two at six are fit to lace Paul McCann's boots. Anyone who can't see how integral he is to how Cargin play really shouldn't have a vote.

Shifting players like Conal Cunning around into a corner forward slot  who get plenty of airtime just so he gets an award farcical and disrespectful to any genuine corner forwards who lined out in intermediate and junior grade.

Definitely agree Oso....votes do not matter in this...
A few individuals select the line up, and they will determine the winners.

So, which other team other than Gall's or Cargin has made it through the first round of Ulster in the past 20 years....?

Quote from: breakingball on October 12, 2023, 07:05:10 PMAgree, naomh conaill dominated the game, they had Cargin beat, two or three times, and only for Hail Mary sort of stuff Cargin managed to bring the game to extra time and then get over the line. cargin did get over the line though and credit to them for that but it was day-light robbery.

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on October 12, 2023, 01:18:12 PMThere seems to be a hard done by approach here from some

Not sure how that has come about, or looking to get credit for beating a Div 3 team in the final. ;) 

Facts of the matter is this Cargin are the only show in town, that's been evident from getting that lucky goal against us  ;D , I jest...

The attitude from the players from my perspective is top drawer, haven't seen that matched this year or last few any time I've been involved in their games.

Think Mick was talking about disrespect or lack of, after the final, not sure who that's was directed too, not many would, with all seriousness, say they haven't been the top team, so not sure whos disrespecting them.

So this will be 7 runs at Ulster championship, big win last year and now another go at the Derry champions..
Seasoned campaigners in Ulster

I hope Cargin represent us well and win Ulster.

Appreciate its a different level and not easy, especially when sleep walking through Antrim and then met with hard, flying runners, tacklers etc.

The chip on the shoulder thing is mad though. Cargin clearly the best in Antrim and I gave Dunloy no chance, being slated for saying I hoped they at least had a go.

Glenties game was genuinely lucky for Cargin last year, Glenties could have been out of sight but Cargin hung in and got level by hoofing in high balls that 9 times out of 10 don't result in a goal.

I was disappointed they then played within themselves and tried not to get hammered by Glen. They literally didn't have a shot from play in the first half.
Galls used to play on their own terms and beat many teams in Ulster playing that way

I appreciate going toe to toe may have resulted in a hammering so damned if they did etc

But I'd leave the chip on the shoulder shite to Tyrone people (who you always get a rise out of!)and answer any critics on the field in Ulster.

Cargin the best by far from here and I genuinely hope they push on this year...though Glen or Slaughtneil are admittedly the toughest draw bar Kilcoo.

A quality team but won't get the kudos Galls got till push on in Ulster. I hope you do.

Jeez such utter tripe from bb, and similar rubbish from G...

Not worthy of eyes with poor memory with vision blurred by jealousy.....

Lotta little green men prompting some of these texts...

Facts are Cargin are well ahead of the pack in Antrim

Seven senior titles in nine years as well as a couple of under-18s and the ability to bring those sides onwards to senior level ensures they will remain strong...

Quote from: podge on October 09, 2023, 09:00:46 PMAs a matter of interest, how many players from this and recent Cargin teams would have had their college football in the south Derry schools?

Ronan Gribbin is a former Malachian, product of St Malachys on the Antrim road Belfast.

A big majority or in fact all of the rest of the panel attended St Pats Maghera, St Pius X or St Mary's both Magherafelt.

As for making comparison with St Galls of course the Milltown men were a super side but unlike the Toome men they were assembled from players across the province,whereas Cargin are 'home grown' through out...

As I have said before, Cargin are the best team in the county without any doubt.
They have, by far the most talented squad without transfers and look likely to dominate for a while.
