".....an Antrim man ......take the reins now"

Think there's a slightly implicit meaning in there if you read between the lines very carefully. What do you want Darren to do, carry water bottles?

Had a bad feeling about today's match especially after the performance v The Dubs.

Cheddar had Laois switched into championship mode which is something Antrim have not been capable of doing over the years, with the exception of Dinny Cahill's teams.

Bad week for Antrim hurling with the U20 result and the minor team's situation.

Possibly got carried away with the league performances.

Yeah I have to say I had a bad feeling too. The minor thing I still donít know if it is COVID related.

Itís fine to in the end want an in house manager but gleeson committed , has got buy in and deserves a chance to build on what he has done if he is willing. He deserves massive credit.

After a great league a poor championship, today was brutal as was the under 20s.
Could anyone on here explain what the hell is going on with the minors? Bizarre situation.

Im absolutely gutted from that match, we hit too many wides, didnt win enough ball, when we got possesion turned over in the backline it was so frustrating, i feel we dont have players running off the shoulder enough like the top teams do aswell.
But would be madness to question Gleesons position, we're still better than all those years losing to teams like westmeath and carlow. For me he's our best manager since dinny cahill. Darren Gleeson should get all our support!! i hope he stays on.
The joe mcdonagh will be tough to win next year, offaly will likely be in it and they look like they are on the way back.
Im just gutted

I don't know about how laois u20s prepare but I believe ours only really have been getting together once a week for about the past 6 weeks wouldn't really give you much time to know your colleagues

Gutted for the lads but we just werenít good enough. Pucks outs, turn overs, sloppy short passing, slow support play, Lots to work on. Even with all that we had them down but just wouldnít stamp on their throats.

In his interview after the game Gleeson said Antrim hurling needs to improve the structures drastically. Dont know exactly what structures, maybe its training facilities, coaching, the underage hurling setups, i dunno. But i hope its something they are looking at, with Neal Peden. I'd imagine funding is an issue to improve the structures much.

Probably need to work towards getting the division 2 sides up to div1  level

It's something we need to address and not puck it further down the road. Quantifiable checklist that we can put in place. Don't like the sound of that word drastic. I know very very little but I'd start with the quality of coaches taking development squads. We need the highest quality of coaching to get up to speed.

Antrim have been nyamming about the 'structures' for years. Time for them to do a Kildare and start doing things themselves.

That Kildare U20 victory over Wexford didn't happen overnight. That's a result of 10 years of underage development.

Antrim have a chance to get things underway with Gaelfast, which unfortunately appears to be imploding with the project looking for its third manager since it began.
 
I'd say that Darren Gleason may have been referring to the U20 result during the week.

Good question as why Paul Donnelly left the Gaelfast set up. I was at one of the series of Gaelfast roadshows and was impressed with what was being rolled out. Did he jump from a sinking ship ???

I have to question the logic of a Gaelfast coach taking a series of football sessions at a primary school which is a feeder for a hurling only club. Apparently that is what the coach was instructed to do which would indicate an issue with communication.

Nothing. He's done amazing. It's more the principle of us perking our ears up when a Southern speaks. Sambo said it for years.

Sambo has had his chances over the years. His track record doesn't add up to much.
