Agree EOC. For what it's worth I judge a man's worth around a football team on one core measurement. It's where you start off and what you do with that group, and where you finish.

Plenty of good coaches didn't win plenty of silverware but clearly improved beyond recognition the way their teams played, were set up, very fit, and had them punching well above their weight.

That would be my barometer. Is James Horan a bad manager because he never won an all Ireland?

Give me a man any day who can take average players and have them playing out of their skin and maintain this over a period of time. Not a one off result. And where the next man in possibly allows the set up to revert to mediocre.
Yes BS agree. Without knowing the specifics I see that D.O.F role as a very different one to coaching or managing a team. G.A has a good way about him and is level headed, knows Antrim inside out has good contacts / pulling power maybe and comes with vast playing and coaching experience. So why not, all the best to him.

Look this is very straightforward. If this is a paid position the job would have been advertised, clubs would have been notified and given time to nominate, and there would be a sub committee set up to make sure the process was transparent.

I'm waiting on the detail emerging on this, the official line so to speak. Was it in today's IN? Anyone care to post it up if so?

We need this position filled badly. There's no doubt about that. That's one thing that's beyond debate!

Itís on there Twitter feed - yes you need the position filled but by a man that is a proven loser in coaching - as I said above great idea issue is getting the right personality/ person someone with success as a player/coach is key for people to respect that person will enda mc Ginley respect him?
A proven loser in coaching? Define loser. Someone who hasnt won a championship? By god theres some losers about in that case. Very harsh words by yourself.

There were definitely court cases in those days - now not so many.

Jc I still mind the tv footage well too though wasnít there that day. Looked pretty mad but was par for the course for some of those games back round then.
How this conversation has evolved back to Cargin, St Pauls or court cases is anyones guess. Your memory not great it was 0.9 - 0.5 to Cargin, a comfortable win.

MON?

I would be more concerned with the LD line management, subs and fans on the pitch for the melee!! For a game streamed live it was embarrassing


Disgusting scenes at the LD v Aghagallon game last night, extremely disappointing performance from MO'N as well as players I just hope the video is properly viewed and all that need dealt with are penalised accordingly.
At end of 64th minute a LD player gets tackled and no joke 8 LD mentors enter the field to antagonise and protest. All the Maor Foirne nonsense is gone now thank god. I believe there is supposed to be a Manager on the side line and everyone else back in the dugout. Terry McCrudden senior seemed like he was playing wing half back he was on the field constantly. Surely this is on the referee, stop the game and don't start it again until managements follow the rules.

I think love of cluB would only  bring u that distance. Love of money will take u a shorter distance like Derry to Toome or Belfast to Aghagallon
I like James and got to admire the desire shown. On your other point I reckon 9 out of 12 division 1 teams have outsiders as such running their senior teams. Coupled along with our county senior football and hurling teams. Any reason why you named the two clubs you did? Maybe you should move with the times / Get off high horse, whichever suits.
I hear those 2 are paying big big money thats all - Know Rossa, LD , St Johns and St Galls in belfast are being run by club men. Seems to be rife in SW. About moving with times u just can't pick the rules u want to observe and the ones u want to ignore
Are Gary Wallace, Gavin McGeehan and Fay Devlin St Galls club men, thats great hi

James would be 35 now, his status as an Antrim great assured a long time ago. St Brigid's had a great league campaign, their minor winning teams are maturing nicely into senior footballers, you've Paul Mc Comisky there (ex Down) and Conor McAleer (ex Fermanagh) as well as a highly rated manager.

All the ingredients for a proper tilt at the championship...the return of Loughrey could add the icing to the cake. That would have been the thinking.

Of course they are still well in with a chance of making the quarter finals. Still all to play for.
"Minor Winning teams" - no need for that low blow there Bannside

What is going on in moneyglass they couldn't muster one point in the game with Cargin. I don't think I can recall in senior championship at club anyone not scoring. Like seriously.
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.
This is not a dig at Moneyglass as a club they had no choice but play in the senior, but this game did nobody any good, and it was neither celebrated or mocked either I can tell you! Teams need to be placed in the proper championship.

Group 1
Cargin vs Moneyglass - Cargin by 10 (Depends on attitude of home team)
St Johns vs Rossa - Rossa by 1

Group 2
Portglenone vs St Brigids -  Draw

Group 3
Lamh Dhearg vs Aghagllon - Lamh Dhearg by 7
Aldergrove vs St Endas - St Endas by 8 (Cant see the logic of Aldergrove being in Senior Championship this year no offence intended, well beaten in most if not all Senior Champ games last year and currently well off the pace in Div 2

Group 4
Creggan vs St Galls - St Galls by 1 (I still think there is a puff in this St Galls team)

It was scary how far behind Antrim were, firstly physically, secondly tactically. Donegal well drilled, Antrim not drilled at all. Worrying. I read the Antrim manager saying they had done s and c work. Having a laugh and without being cruel Antrim have taken a big step back in the quality of minor managements in last couple years and it shows.
