Conor Deegan has always believed he will be the next Down manager, even before Tally was appointed never mind for next year. Seriously, what planet does this man live on? His years with the 21's were shocking, like Tally with no progress at all never mind that he couldn't get on with Walsh his No.2 as they hardly spoke. We will be replacing incompetence with even more incompetence putting him in.

I would go back to wee James, any other Down names are laughable. Minors are totally different than grown men.

Just wondering why our Down social media channels of twitter and facebook are solely County based? We must have the worst PRO's in Ireland over the last few years who cannot retweet or post any club activity, every other county can do this apart from us apparently.

Almost every single club championship game Junior to Senior is covered at adult level and has been the last few years. Your comments are wide of the mark. Last year during the league there was actually a live score show on social media covering the club matches that no one could attend. The coverage of club football has increased dramatically over the last number of years not to mention the live streaming.

Don't mind him supersub, he's a moron, total wum who doesn't contribute anything positive at all. Yesterday was a much improved performance and a big result! I think we have a chance v Donegal especially in Newry with our own supporters giving the team a lift. Look at Cavan, Ulster champions but now in division 4, it was important we didn't drop to 3.

Thank you for confirming my point supersub, nothing at all this year on the club front on our social media just county yet you tell me how wonderful things were last year!

As for a win yesterday being a positive, I have to disagree. It is just papering over the cracks but it wont be Tally's problem for much longer which really is a positive. Dropping to Division 3 would have given us a great opportunity to build again with a new manager, now we are in a position where we could get relegated next year and end up in the Tailteann Cup.

Just watching this on RTE. Not at all dissing the lads but I'm not feeling any serious arguments for their feelings. Others may have different views, I'm sure.

Great to get a win and many thanks to Burns for that. Just papering over the cracks though.

Absolutely horrendous display but possibly overshadowed by the clueless performance of an inept referee. I don't know where this team is heading but it certainly isn't upwards. Encouraging to see Conor Mc Crickard finishing strongly when everybody else had thrown the towel in. Stories of unrest in the camp also appearing which affected team selection today.

Down team for tomorrow

M Reid
C McCartan
G McGovern
P Fegan
P Laverty
C Mooney
D o Hagan
J Flynn
C Poland
D Guiness
J guiness
R McEvoy
P Devln
B o Hagan
C Quinn

I like the sound of Mooney in defence coming onto the ball. He had great year when Down reached the ulster final
Poland and Flynn better at midfield as both were played out of position last week
Burns McKernan Murdock Collins and Doherty pay the price for last weeks performance
Is Darren ready for a full match
Is Reid up for it
A strong team hopefully a big performance

Reid is a long ball man and will be hung out to dry like Burns if he doesn't have more options or movement in defence first of all. Mooney and Darren will give much more of a burst through the middle third. Midfield continues to be a weakness particularly when the box kick out strategy is used. Again, no big consistent scorers up from apart from Quinn, no graft in Devlin and Mc Evoy will be in MF with D Guinness at HB. Not very promising and coming against a physically bigger team will make this very difficult tomorrow. I hope they prove me wrong.

Lines have gotten silly blurry above.

Lotto’s belief that he is entitled to continually attack and slander semi-public figures from the cover of anonymity is misled and downright disgusting. I sincerely hope he gets a knock on the door from PSNI one day, just so he realises that the playing field is more even than he thinks.

But when posters on a GAA discussion forum find it wrong that other posters might analyse and criticise the performances of players/management in GAA matches, then you really to have a good think about why the f**k it is you might tune into a GAA discussion board.

There are guys from your community, your families and parishes who get a call up for county duty, consider it a supreme honour, train hard 4 nights a week, watch their diet closely, do gym work often twice a day, build life around representing their county. Not just the starting 15, but subs and boys who don't even get their name on the programme.

And some self righteous p***k thinks he has a right to come into social media and name names and denegrate  insult and cast judgement as if they were all Jack O Shea's themselves back in the day. Cyber bullies, that's what you are - can't you make a good point while leaving the names and personal shit out of it???

Mourne Rover made his point more than adequately without seeing the need to get personal.

Would you keep your nose out of this thread. You slabber enough on your own section without pontificating on here. You are a well known trouble maker in your own county so sort out your own problems, and believe me you have plenty, first before being a dick on here. Just f**k away off.

Beat by a team that played an All Ireland final six months ago, a very good side, on their own patch. Not sure what some people were expecting, but plenty of knee jerk reactions to be found after the first competitive game of the season.

manwithnoplan welcome on board Paddy  ;D

Some things never change. There has been little to no progress now with Tally into his third term. He could possibly start with a kickout strategy to retain possession, this is basic stuff men. We should have stayed in Div 3.

Taken from Hoganstand

Tally says training breach was an error of judgement but he knows other counties were at it
May 13, 2021

Down manager Paddy Tally says he wishes he had never taken the coaching session in Abbey CBS last January that was deemed in breach of the GAA’s Covid-19 rules.

Tally received an eight week suspension from the GAA for organisining the session and talking to Brian Carthy on his latest Podcast, the Mourne manager says it was an ‘error of judgement’.

“It was an error of judgement on my behalf and I do regret taking the players out for that session,” explained Tally who said it was definitely unusual to see the PSNI arrive half way through. “It was strange, they don’t normally come to watch training sessions.”

Explaining the circumstances, Tally says they were working with a small group of new players to the panel.

“I had a number of new players out. I’d taken a few players out to show them the running programme, what they had to do for the next six weeks before we would start training, just to get ready. That’s all it really amounted to.

“As the law was in the North, we weren’t breaking any Covid regulations. In the North we were seen as elite and the law says you could train in groups of less than 15. But we did break the GAA rule. Looking back at it now, I wish we just hadn’t done it.”

Tally also explained that he knew other counties were training and the get together was an attempt not to get left behind.

That was our first get together and to be honest with you, we knew that a lot of other counties were back out doing stuff. And I had been contacted by a number of other managers telling me that they had been doing bits and could we take a challenge match. So I thought most other counties that I know are doing it so maybe we should start getting something done. It was a little bit of panic on my behalf and an error of judgement.”

As proud Down man I would plead to anyone with influence to ask these 'blow ins' to do the right thing and stop spouting their lies over Abbeygate. Our county chairman was caught out several times with his lies and now Tally, who previously trying to cover up to some degree, now says that there were only a few new lads there. Seriously, the new season is upon us and you are trying to get the county behind you but you come out with a ball of lies to try to justify training over lockdown. Everybody else being at it as well, apparently, and these men contacted him looking for a game. Catch a grip. Tailtean Cup next year so you'll be gone anyway Paddy.

Down suffered a big defeat at the hands of Tyrone last week in Newry


Decent team that by the looks of it those lads would be fighting for a starting place next week with this group likely to return
Darren O H
Barry O H
Kevin McK
Peter F
Liam K
James G
Benny McA
Conor G

Strong team if above lads come into the team

Sweet f**k, has that Tyrone man a clue putting out a team like that so close to the start of the league?  He has been taking a serious dough from Down over the last 2 years and he obviously knows nothing about his players. Paddy Murdock is a No.3, Johnny Flynn is not a No. 6. Poland is not a county midfielder. Mooney and Guinness need to be coming onto the ball. Devlin is? Who is going to score with that forward line apart from Quinn in that team? Apart from Kerr and Darren O'Hagan in the subs there is not much else to inspire me. Just throw the towel in now Tally.

Hear the greatest coach of all time has left Bryansford.

Trying to charge a club for zoom meetings is a bit much.

He absolutely did Johnny no doubt He put it out there that he wasn't happy with the covid guidelines he was told to work under so he left. It was all money related which is despicable and just pure greed. It probably suited him to leave as Bryansford were gonna be a distraction with him involved with Roscommon as well. I was looking forward to reading the truth in the Newry Reporter about him leaving but all I read was a list of glorious failures with club and county teams over a number of years. No doubt Roscommon will be added to that list quite soon.
