Ft result. Armagh 2-13 Down 0-12. 2 goals in last 5 minutes killed off Down in a tight match.
When did Down last win an u21 game?
when did we last win a championship match of any sort? Unfortunately 1st round defeats are becoming the norm.

I thought it was a fair result for Down,we were in it most of the game but Armagh finished very strong maybe due to the introduction of their Subs.Armagh looked fitter.

I think it's now 10 games in a row at all levels without a win
The last was back in 2015?
Don't know when the last minor/21 win was?
Could be worse we could be supporting Fermanagh

Was at game in Armagh and like many others thought down were in game until last 10 mins when bad decisions in front of goal came back to haunt us, much better performance than last year but I would ask the question , how many u 21 s are or could play senior football for down, unlike many other county teams I would have to say 2 at most , so that being the case something isn't right , we need a seamless transition from u 21 to senior, more of the guys on show last night must be invited into the senior panel, our no 8 last night looked capable , our keeper was playing senior , is capable but his kick outs are brutal, that's it! So we look forward to the end of May , I'm quietly confident

That's the problem we will never hear or see tell of these lads again
Ther are let go with no time or effort put into trying to get them to make the step up
Oilean your quietly confident against a division 3 team at home?Why wouldn't you be may I ask?
Considering armagh s diabolical record of late too

I'm looking forward to Saturday night having missed the Derry game. What do the people who were in Derry think of how we will fair against Cill Dara?

In response to the queries about our run of Ulster championship defeats, we managed to win our first round games at senior, U21 and minor level in 2013. Since then, I am fairly sure that, apart from the senior draw in Omagh in 2014, we have lost every other match over the three grades. Our last 11 provincial championship fixtures have therefore resulted in ten defeats and a draw - presumably the worst sequence in living memory.

 Is is it not time for another anniversary Dinner or other so as we can celebrate our glorious past?

No mention of team named
The worst PR team in Ireland no doubt
They tweet during games for about 40 minutes and then just stop?
What's that all about?
You would not have known the under 21s had a game Wednesday
Down south Kerry/Cork make a massive deal about 21s..
Same team I would expect?
Donnelly into full back in place of McGovern if he is out?Massive loss if out

Disappointing display tonight, thought kildare were well worth the win. They were stronger, especially around the middle 3rd and more direct in their attacking play. We were slow and seemed to go sideways most of the time and when we did go direct the ball didnt stick. The management were slow to make changes when the game was slipping away. Need a win next week now to have a chance to stay up.

Hard game to watch when we play like that
Everyone behind the ball with the exception of Barry O Hagen
No one to kick the ball to when we took the ball off Kildare especially in the first half
Do we have a kickout strategy?
That Kildare team were missing there 3 most influential players tonight.
I think I got carried away after beating Derry
