focus more on football than spelling Brendy. Can you spell snob?

Yes fair enough, apologies.

Moneyglass missing a good few players from speaking to some supporters of theirs, fair enough but in all honesty in addition to the fact they are in a lower division, their tactics were dire. 14 / 15 men behind the ball the entire game, they intentionally barely crossed the halfway line. Surely better to loose 0.35 to 0.09 than 26 nil and have some sort of attempt at playing football.

Lose. Surely better to lose .35 to .09.

That minor result tonight should lead to a lot of hard questions. Our minor lads as a whole are certainly not 26 points behind Donegal. Something is badly wrong there.

Such a shame about PG1. Have gone backwards at such a high speed too. Can't see them getting out of their group this year will be lucky to win a match.

Nice one Bannside!

A different ref wouldn’t have changed the outcome, but he gave Armagh some very soft frees and very questionable decisions when our lads getting fouled. Plus the over carrying rule only applied to one team.

We were well in this for 3/4 of the game. Scoreline unfair on Antrim but mistakes get punished. Loads to build on for Div 3 campaign next year

Jaysus, looks like Samuel Beckett is back among us and sending message to Antrim GAA Board.

Re Sunday, its true of course that the mission has been accomplished for the season, promotion and a higher playing field next year. True too that no one expects us to beat Armagh, and certainly not in the Armagh camp. No matter what the public utterances are it almost inevitable they are eyeing up a semi final. So we may not win, we will be competitive, and hopefully keep the game alive well into the second half. If so, there will come a moment when the big prize presents itself and you never know...it happened in 2009 when Tomas took the goal that changed the game; happened in that crazy match in 2014 v Fermanagh; it was even there for us last year v Cavan with the Gallagher goal effort that would have swung that game.

You get the feeling there will be a moment of opportunity, and hopefully we take it.

Promotion was absolutely key and if we lost to Armagh, that's a line drawn under a successful season. It's just a real shame that it's such a curtailed county season. Enda and the management team will only have had 5 games. In any normal season we have McKenna Cup x 3 (at least), league x 7 games, USFC x 1 (at least) and qualifier(s) - so at least 12 games to build a team, develop a plan, try players etc. They have had none of that space this year and is we do go out of Championship on 4th July, that's it for the squad and management until Jan 2022.

As for Armagh - Enda will have his plan I'm sure, I would love to see us taking the game to them, press them and see if we can score more than them, but then I'm a simple man  :)

Everyone is taking like us beating Laois is ancient history. We beat them in championship group game in Ballycastle about 4 or 5 seasons ago, a penalty was the last puck of the game.  But in that period it was always v close between us and them be it championship or league; they have no Indian sign over us.

Yes, Shannon had some impact after coming on. His pass for final point was absolute precision. Wonder what the approach will be this weekend? We are safe and a huge championship game two weeks later. Might see some lesser used panel members vetting game time which might be a good thing.

So we are now safe in Div 1 with a round of matches still to go. We really have moved up another level over this last year. Yesterday was one of the best days watching an Antrim match, either code. Well done to everyone involved and that’s a hell of a lot of people

For the majority that won’t get to see it live in person, our game is live on TG4

We would take that all day long. Important to keep the winning run going tomorrow too.
