Any thoughts on the game? Will Down announce a team now or wait till the evening of the game? Will be interesting to see if Mc Guinness carries the successful and effective gameplan he had last year into the match, I think Down struggle against this type of game.

Quick thought!! Double header at Croke Park with Tyrone v Armagh?? Probably a long shot but would certainly draw a big crowd!

GAA Discussion / Ulster County Seedings

If you were to seed our 9 counties now what order would they be in.....

Mine would be....

1. Down - Think Down are currently the best team equipped to win Ulster this year, really do feel its their year.
2. Tyrone - I know they v stumbled early on but still provide biggest threat to Down for Ulster success.
3. Donegal - Huge strides made under Mc Guinness and could be a dark horse!!
4. Derry - Same as above but do feel they ll fall short when it matters
5. Monaghan - Think the Banty days are gone and they are no longer a threat.
6. Armagh - Havent progressed under our Paddy and think its going to be a short summer
7. Antrim - Baker has taken them as far as he can, back to where they belong
8. Cavan - New manager but same old Cavan
9. Fermanagh - Just horrifying how quickly they have fallen!!

GAA Discussion / Paul Galvin

Whats peoples view on this guy? After seeing the Late Late show on Friday past he has confirmed my beliefs about him.
This is obviously a clear dig at Tohill and proper order too... This trial by tv has got to stop in my opinion.. Dont know why the Sunday Game persist in using Tohill anyway, he is so mundane and dreary its unreal.

Fair play to Galvin, a superb footballer who gets seriously unfair criticism.

RTE won't comment on Galvin criticism
Kerry's Paul Galvin
21 December 2010

RTE have refused to respond to criticism of 'The Sunday Game' by Kerry star Paul Galvin.

Galvin and Kerry team-mate Tomas O Se were handed retrospective bans by the CCCC last summer after incidents involving them were highlighted by the long-running GAA programme. The suspensions are still a sore point in Kerry where it is believed that 'The Sunday Game' panellists are having too much of an influence on disciplinary matters.

Speaking on 'The Late, Late Show' last Friday night, Galvin referred to RTE's flagship GAA programme as 'CSI: Sunday Game'. But when contacted yesterday, the national broadcaster refused to comment on the matter.

Galvin, who is the subject of documentary to be screened on RTE over the Christmas period, told presenter Ryan Tubridy: "CSI: Sunday Game I like to call it.

"Well it's more like CSI something, it just seems to be a crime scene investigation every weekend. I don't know what's going on there.

"I don't have any hang-up on the programme, I don't watch the show to be quite honest."

When asked if he respected the views of 'The Sunday Game' panellists, the 2009 Footballer of the Year said: "I don't necessarily need the lads sitting in the studio to tell me what's what with the game. There are certain guys there, (Dara) O Cinneide I played with. O Cinneide was my captain when I won my first All-Ireland - obviously I respect Dara.

"Colm O'Rourke - I was a big fan of the Meath team. I like my teams like that Meath team in the late '80s, they were manly. I respect O'Rourke.

"Pat Spillane is Pat Spillane - he's a Kerry man, one of the greatest players of all time."

Down / Can Burren roll back the years and be successful in Ulster?

After their success last year at U21 Ulster level, could this team backboned by most of that team last year and with serious intercounty experience on the field and the bench could this be the long overdue arrival of a Down Club on the Ulster club Scene??
