What an outcome today, I mean seriously, after two games, how many actually thought that we would still be in Div 2 come the end of the league. Fair play to the lads for turning it around. It appears we now have one of the highest scoring half back lines in the country in mooney and o Hanlon. It also FINALLY appears that we have scoring forwards on the team in the Johnston's and o hagan. If the kick out strategy can be sorted out, we will have come a long way from where we finished last season.
Yes we have come a long way but it's actually from the bottom of Div 1 to 6th in Div 2.

What a difference a week makes in football
Over on the other threads
McGeeney Out
Harte Out
McGrath Out
Barton Out
McGleenan Out
And after all that happened in the league things could be looking up for EB and co
B+ I would rate this league campaign

While it was good to stay in Div 2 there is a hell of a lot to do in next 8 weeks to Championship. I dont think there is much between Down and Armagh and it will be a very close game in Newry.  A win against Armagh would be great and a decent semi final showing. But its still probably the end of the road for this management team.  Next year on Div 2 will be tougher  again .

Very good  ;D
You have to at least admit though that the spirit amongst the group is at the other end of the scale to what it was last year.  They are fighting for each other, and not with each other as some would have said earlier in the year.

  Still in Div 2 is quite an achievement from the talk after our first two defeats.

Aye I was at it. Packing Downey playing for Ford. Scored a point maybe 2 first half. Didn't come out for the 2nd half I don't think. Donagh Mcaleenan and Danny Savage a class apart. Stand out players on the pitch. CPN deserved to win but 6 points flatters them

Thought the Ford deserved something from the game but they were very wasteful in front of the posts. Could have had a penalty near the end before the Point got their 2nd goal. For me Savage and the 2 Mc Aleenan's were excellent. The Point had a very strong bench to turn to which got them over the line,would be very surprised if a few of them aren't starting in their next game.

Ford got what they deserved. They never looked close to winning that game.
They couldn't stop fouling when/where it mattered and they hadn't the legs for a very mobile Point team with a few fellas blowin out their arse well before the end.
A weak bench too and only Danny Savage as a threat up front.
Packie Downey didn't want to know either. Bettered by an 18yr old, albeit a good one.
Younger MacAleenan a different class to all else on the field.

Who is the 18yr old?
