Well would you expect auglishnafin to play without there best player? After all the hard work that club done to get into Division 3 to potentially play 5 matches without him and probably getting relegated?
Saul without O Hare? I think not
Now we are fine as we only have 2 and can deal with that but the smaller clubs will struggle
It may only be 1 player but in a short league it could be the difference in getting relegated and staying up.


Could we have some English please, what point are you making?

Any club who have U.20's on their team as starters and are most likely weaker without them will possibly look for postponements. Any others with injuries and players on U.20 panel may also look to put their game back if this suited them. I always thought that County panels were allowed a free fortnight before their championship games, certainly the case for seniors and I think 7 days for minors, not sure what it is for U.20's though. This really is a mess and while we all want to see them do well there is no doubt that the club season will suffer for the sake of this competition.

The Championship is supposed to be on BBC2 now but all I am getting is Tennis. Am I the only one?

The greatest coach in Ireland never won a game this year, oh my what a big surprise. His outdated methods which we in Down are so familiar with have been found out again. Fools will flock to his 'innovative' coaching days, perhaps he should be a spectator and take notes in future. Where to go now as his sideline antics and engineering a cute move away from Bryansford means no one in Down would touch him? Little sympathy but there are plenty of fools out there.

Consult the players, catch yourselves on. We have too many pampered pooches in Down currently without this. Kevin Mc Kernan had a major influence on getting our current disaster of a management in place and we can see how that worked out.

Tally's three year and £100,000 contract negotiated by Danny Hughes who helped raise the funds for him is at an end I believe. That performance today sums up how far we have declined recently. Eamon Burns was ridiculed by so many but getting to an Ulster Final and great days on the way just shows us what we are missing. We are so far off pace of the way football is currently and having such a manager who can't see that is holding us back. Today, so many of his players let him and us down. What have they been doing in training for months now when we are so defensively set up but yet so open at the same time. No movement on our own kickouts, hanging our keeper out to dry like many days is just scandalous and not pushing up on Donegal's kickouts today was pathetic. We have been an embarrassment for 3 years now, bye Paddy.

Conor Deegan seems to think he should be the next manager. Talk about going from to dumb to dumber.

Where are the Johnston’s, O’Hare and Harrison?
Jerome, Donal and Harrison all injured and off the panel. Ryan didn't commit this year

Can't be that bad then when they can still play for their clubs though.

Very quiet build up to the championship. Let's face it do Down have any hope? I dont think so. A good performance is all we can hope for. Declan Bonner thinks Murphy will be back for sunday.

It's really hard to hope for anything else than a performance to keep the score respectable . Good will not beat Donegal though, it's gonna take something we haven't seen consistently in the Tally era to get us through this one. I hope Paddy has a plan now, especially on kickouts, that will make us competitive. I would like to be positive, for a change, but I just can't see anything other than a Donegal win. I listened to Darren O'Hagan on the radio this morning, someone I have serious time for, but he spoke like Down had already thrown in the towel. I hope not.

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.
