Derry / Re: Derry Club football and Hurling

A city with a population of 107k and very few of them could be bothered to turn up. Id hazard a guess that 95% of them didn't even know it was on.

Its time to give this 27 year experiment up because that stadium is a big white elephant.  Put games on in Dungiven going forward.

And what is the capacity of "Dungiven", never mind Owenbeg?

Are you by any chance talking about Niall Loughlin?

Depressing we have sunk so low.

I dont think we are any less fit or conditioned than Tyrone.
We dont have the best players in the county turning out.

Lets hypothetically say that all the players didn't try their hardest today or in the leadup to the game and that this is the reason we got the beating we did.
By that same rationale, if they all were fully committed to towing the line, putting in the effort in the gym and playing to the best of their ability then we would have won today. I don't think so. The quality of players currently on the panel is not as good as Tyrone.
In addition, the quality of management is not as good as that of Tyrone AND consequently, the quality of preparation is not as good. So we get beat by a better-prepared team with a higher caliber of player.

We cant do anything about the ability or quality of players currently available (I'd be sure they all go out to do their best), but we should be able to do something to encourage the best players in the county to be involved. County Board need to take responsibility for that.

As far as management go, we are tactically very poor. We had no plan to attack the Tyrone blanket...and that is managements fault. We push everyone up to the 45 then they all stand still, the ball is recycled to a player who is not moving time and again. Tyrone on the otherhand, have players running off the shoulder and take the ball at pace and so break the blanket easier.

Some positives, McKinless was very good in goals and his kickouts are top class.
I though McGuckin did well in Midfield, I think he was there to outmuscle Cavanagh and it worked as Cavanagh had very little influence on the game. I like McGuckin, always works hard IMO. However, it left us devoid of a target man up front. McGlauglin had a decent game.

Some negatives, our attacking play in general, Lynch is obviously not fit, defensively weak, no consistant free taker and I believe our management team are very poor. Not necessarily Barton, but I dont think his support team are up to the task.

McGlaughlin?

Can't wait for all the post mortems from all the experts on here.  Derry are dung get over it. Get out of qualifiers as soon as possible and get the real football started
What 'real' football do you mean? And did you just do a post mortem?

Not a post mortem as knew pre game and for a long time that derry were dung. But well done on trying to be smart. Real football is what most people in the county look forward to is club football.
Did not realise your post was pre game.

Ah god usual on this board. People picking up on something just to argue. Explain how it's a post mortem.  I never referred to the match once. I said Derry ARE dung. General statement.

If Derry entered a slabbering AI we'd win it every year, you'd be in with a good shout of the  captain's armband.

Another disappointing day. No intensity from most of the team. If we're setup defensively with 13 men between the 13 and 45 we needy be well drilled on how to hit men hard with the sternum, knock them back or sideways. We constantly tackled with a last hand in allowing Tyrone to engineer frees . tyrone were able to find a man in the congested area in the scoring zone.

That team has plenty of good footballers, but with too many men not lining out and those there not being drilled well enough was our undoing.

McKindless had a fine game in nets

Well done to the minors, hopefully another big year ahead for them

Have to agree with you there. With the amount on here we could have 2 teams .

 At least you admit to a post mortem, finally!

McGuckin is it great condition? Lynch is in good condition? Tallon is up to the physical challenges at this level?  Need we mention Nevin? But you have seen the stats, share them with the board.

Tyrone have named 1 inside forward (not surprising).. Barton has named 4/5 (players you would or could describe as full forwards who can play out the field a bit when needed). These men, along with other can take scores, but the worry is there is only so much space inside the 45 against a blanket defence. Kielt is a big loss in this department, as is big Mark

The squad are in serious condition, so here's hoping for big performance

Derry by 2

Serious condition - are you nuts. Derry nowhere near physically fit - not even close to the standard required.
100% correct. And the players deserve better preparation.

If you posted after game it is a post mortem. Anyhow you said you could not wait for post mortems and when you get a reply you talk dung. I am sure you had enough sense not to attend the match today as you are such an expert - in hindsight. No pride in your county is as low as it gets.

Forrester is injured. Not sure he would made the team anyhow as his lack of physical presence was exposed towards end of league. McFaul, if he keeps his head, is a plus. Thought Mark might start to settle the nerves but he will be on soon enough. Big day for the debutants and time for a few men to really step up and show leadership.

I'm no coach, wait there.........I am, but I'd think I'd start someone who has played the previous 7 games

And who is injured? You learn not to in Foundation level. He started the previous games because he was not injured and 3 Slaughtneil key defenders were not available. Big change now.

Time to get fully behind the players who want to represent us on Sunday and play our part in restoring a bit of pride.

Reading on the Tyrone thread there about the amount of people that are inside the pitch at league games and I have to agree. Only one manager should be allowed on the touchline, everyone else in the dugout.
I went to Loup and Bellaghy game last night. Loup had 5 "managers" up the line, all roaring instructions onto the pitch. I just cant see how this is even beneficial for them.
Decent game though, with a draw the fair result

They had bother getting 1 and now have 5. Interesting.

Well done to the hurlers today. Croke Pk bound in June to play Armagh in the final
Well done to the hurdles surely but I feel we need to put this in context before any wild celebrations. Carlow have qualified for the Christy  Ring final which is the tier above our current nicky rackart level. Next year will provide a much more genuine test of where we are at.

All Seasons is 100% correct. Well done, of course, but Derry should not really be hurling at this level. More Ulster Senior titles this century than the footballers. Mind you, All Seasons has put a few "hurdles" in the way, which is concerning!!
