Might be missing a few but the big names still playing. What a complete embarrassment. The fact the couldnít even get up to win a free or something. I have never seen the like of it

11 Missing from the squad that won the IFC last year but weíll not let facts get in the way of a good story. Youíd be led to believe on here that Moneyglass never got the ball out of their own half, that they never had a shot, that they never won a kick out, that they never made any tackles.

Cargin are a ruthlessly efficient footballing monster in Antrim terms and they completely put us to the sword fair play to them for that, never once did the players gloat or try to belittle our players on field they just went about there business,  weíll relish the chance to play them again and hopefully we will compete better.

Save your embarrassment for yourself,  weíll continue to try and improve and get players back on board and where possible close the gap to the top teams. Everybody loves a laugh at others misfortune and become experts on what should have been done without any insight to internal goings on.

Weíve another 5 games to go and they will all be tough but our boys will keep doing the best they can and whatever the outcome you canít ask anymore of them

What an appropriate username in the circumstances

From what I hear Moneyglass tried to be the big men against Whitehill but got boxed into their corner and picked up a few injuries which are yet to clear up.............out of their depth in any event

Well said by the Whitehill man in the middle

Whatís the solution to the Minor/Development squad problems? Weíre all quick to be Ďragingí or question structures letís provide practical solutions and speak to the people in charge to see if you can influence change rather than complain. If youíre not part of the solution youíre part of the problem.

Letís not forget our seniors were beaten by 14 points in the championship, but a moral victory hailed all round.

The only way is up. But we need a under 17 team thatís actually starting to do strength and conditioning now, they need to be developing their game and challenging Ulster counties, they need to be progressing through the ranks and encouraged by club and county.

Sometime we look like we have zero ambition when there is in house bitching between clubs and managers. We are not in a position for our best players not committing. If they arenít the questions should be asked, what would bring you to the set up... 

Regarding the U17ís youíre research mustnít have been very in depth. The 2020 U17 group have been on a tailored S&C plan from October 2019 set out and implemented by a qualified coach with periodic testing to ensure progression, which was evident.

2020 was obviously disjointed with only one U17 league game being played, a home win against Armagh. This particular group have been together from U15 and in that time have registered wins against, Derry, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Donegal and Tyrone within Ulster. Beat Louth, drew with Meath and run Dublin to within 2 points in Dublin and competed well against Mayo that same day.

Competitiveness at U17 level certainly isnít a problem there.

I think weíve missed a trick not going with the Madden/McEntee ticket, however best of luck to Enda McGinley and his team. Theyíll have my support for what itís worth.

How did his club experience not go so well? Did he take the team backwards? Should they have won a championship and didnít. Did he alienate players?

Name me a better player than Mick McCann in the county?

Conor Murray quite possibly the closet to him.

That was so frustrating today from an extremely economic first half to a wasteful second. Effort across the board was fantastic and nobody will be more disappointed than the lads.

There has been debate regarding S&C on here as last week or so and someone rightly pointed out that it doesnít kick the ball over the bar. What it does do though is enable you to hold onto possession in physical contact it was clear today that when Antrim took contact they inevitably got turned over. It happened on many occasions and had as much of a bearing on losing the game as the missed goal chance or wides kicked. It also has a major bearing on power output and pace.

We as a county and clubs have a responsibility here also, need to ensure our players are on sensible and safe conditioning programmes from 13/14 up.

This allied with continued and were possible improved coaching of the skills of the game and tactics is the only way we are going to improve.

Some stat that when you think about it Points.... thats what you call "a good year for the parish".

Certainly is Bannside when you consider also that Creggan were obviously the opposition to Cargin in the Senior final. Impressive return for the area.

Great advertisement for football in Antrim on Sunday. Two teams playing attacking football and leaving everything on the pitch. Creggan extremely unlucky to be on the wrong side with Cargins experience and strength in depth winning the day.

I hope Lenny can convince Ruairi McCann to rejoin the panel a serious player.

A big weekend for the Parish of Duneane also, SFC, IFC, MFC and Reserve FC all residing in it currently.

was surprised as well with that score last night. having seen Moneyglass a fair few times i thought they would be too strong for St Pauls but that wasnt the case. They were behind the whole game and managed to get it back again and into extra time.

Sets up a good final with Moneyglass favourites for it. Id say last year hurt them so they are desperate to right that this year.

DR getting in there early with the aul mind games, from what I seen last night and of last year's final if Dunloy bring a savagery intensity and physicality to the game it is Dunloy's to loose, MG only got in the game last night as St Pauls let them back into it IMO

I think thatís slightly unfair St Paulís certainly brought a serious level of intensity but thatís extremely had to sustain for 60 minutes never mind 80. Moneyglass after being overwhelmed stuck to their task and ground St Paulís down. They also kicked 6 wides in a row in the second half and dominated possession nearly all through it.

I think itís fairer to say an improved second half from Moneyglass and a tiring St Paulís team made the difference rather than St Paulís solely letting Moneyglass back into it.

Moneyglass possibly favourites based on the group game but that will count for nothing come Saturday week.

Long time ago that one, would have had no bearing on Sundays game or on these sets of players. MR2 was close enough to judge and his evaluation of early season getting to know each other would be pretty accurate.

Great weekend past for Antrim.

Under 16 & 17 Footballer with wins over Armagh
Under 20's battling all the way with Tyrone and looking very capable at that level.
Hurlers with an excellent away result in Kerry
Footballers with a completely dominant display in Portglenone.

Long may it continue.
