Brilliant win on Sunday against an ultra defensive set up, Laois are very poor and we should be winning that game comfortably especially with home advantage. With Murphy and McGee injured, have we a glimmer of hope v Donegal ?

What’s the story with so many games being called off due to no referee??? I know there is a big drive to recruit referees every year but are we that short that we are now not having fixtures???

The game I was at last weekend there was a load of referees calling fouls, right enough none of them were on the pitch.
But apart from that there’s been no real new refs in the county this past 4/5 years. The odd one or two but more leaving?

Loooking at the recent scores in the Corn An Duin sections and a few teams getting toppled by lower league opposition.. the one club that really stands out is the Bridge... has “downs oldest club” bubble finally burst???

With the abuse refs receive, who would want to be a GAA ref? Managers make mistakes, players miss open goals, but it's easier to blame the ref.

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.

Any team news for tonight's game. Did the 500 spectators get selected or how did the tickets get sorted? 12 to every club?
I dont know how it will go but Down have struggled against Laois over last number of years. They have had height in Kingston that Down always struggle with and begley will be a bonus to them if fit.

All I know is Gerard Mcgovern is full back and Patrick Murdock is left corner back

Good win today. I didnt see it but another year in div 2 gives something to build on. Looking at div 2 if it had been played as normal I wouldve looked at Laois and westmeath as games to win to keep us up.  Cant see is troubling Donegal but sure just go for it nothing to lose.

A good finish to our league campaign and we will be dining at the number 2 table for another year.
Tally managed the game well and while the kick out strategy is far from perfect, it has come on leaps and bounds, with Rory Burns born again to claim a second successive motm performance.
Full back line was strong, only Darren impressed in HB line and Ryan McAvoy brought plenty to the mf sector when he came on apart from his black card and mad cross field pass to Donie Kingston.
Liam Kerr was pick of the forward line despite 1.9 from Barry O'Hagan while Cory Quinn didn't do a lot but everything was quality.  He has the balance and skills of Mark Poland but more end product.  The usual mixture of madness and brilliance from Mooney while all subs did well.
We probably won't get close to Donegal but I'm certain we will put on a good show with pride in the Jersey.

That was a decent performance from Down in hugely pressurised circumstances so full credit to the squad and management. We managed to give away two poor goals, but Laois effectively handed two back to us, and Down were good value for the win in the end. We still could have lost, if it had not been for three brilliant saves from Burns, while Kerr was outstanding and Barry O'Hagan was excellent from both frees and open play. Our second goal was pretty bizarre, with Mooney making a mess of an attempt to fist a point and the Laois keeper somehow fumbling the ball into the net. We have nothing to lose against Donegal, who are likely to be at a different level, but today was a day when the only thing that mattered was the result.

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.

Watched match on GAAGO thought it was a more than decent performance. Liam kerr and Barry OHagan always carried a threat up front, Cory Quinn was decent in flashes as well. Rory Burns was probably motm with a couple of brilliant saves. If only we could unearth a real top quality midfielder from somewhere. Division 2 status secured which was vital for the development of this team, lots of new players being introduced.
