Donegal will be a very tough but to crack in the first round I think. At least we’ve a better chance than if it were Tyrone again!

Terrible draw for Derry.
Don't agree. Think it is a excellent draw and don't rule out cavan beating donegal and we always beat cavan. Great chance of getting to ulster final as tyrone and monaghan in other half. as i said in the past if we can play with the same heart as we finished last year against mayo then its onwards and upwards for us. hope we can get everyone playing at start of league as this has been a stumbling block in the past
We always beat Cavan?!  That is news to me!

No. Would Gregory talk about "Derry City Council"? Infact, would anyone from Strabane call it that?!!

Awaiting the result from the minor championship final to see if the revolution in Bellaghy has started. Draperstown could never beat the Tones-could they TFAL? That would be embarrassing. That would take years to recover from
If you were still waiting for the result at 4.44, time to move out your time zone!
it was a said with a hint of sarcasm because when I seen the result I knew TFAL wouldn't be seen on this board for months because of the fool he's made himself into. He was already a tube,now he's a fool. Congratulations to Ballinascreen,you have helped this thread. PS I had to laugh at you're last comment on here when you blame the referee whilst admitting Bellaghy had been awarded 2 penalty. 2 penalties that were missed-lol

Clearly you can't spell but not being able to read is a huge disadvantage. If TFAL is never again on the board it will be too soon. It still does not alter what unfolded today.

Well done to our lads today! Well worth their victory.

Bellaghy fall at the last hurdle, a repeat of 2005.

Best of luck to Screen in Ulster!

Nothing beats winning with your friends.

The behaviour of some of your management team as Bellaghy tried to take an equalising free was totally unacceptable and a Screen player also walked right into the freetaker's face, sledging him as he went.  How the free was not brought forward is a mystery. Referee was an absolute disgrace, out of his depth, so a somewhat hollow victory for Screen unfortunately, as Bellaghy also missed two penalties and played last quarter with 14 due to more ref-interference from Screen sideline. Screen gave a better team performance than Bellaghy on the day and won in the end but Screen won no extra friends today with some of their antics, a minority, but grown men who should know better.

Bellaghy players or management don't need any lessons in sledging. They were up to their usual antics in the semifinal against us. Glad to see Screen beat them today and not that surprised. I always thought screen had the better players out of the 2 teams and better team players.
Sledging is wrong no matter where it comes from.  Are you trying to justify it? Screen had indeed better team players, in fact that was the key to their victory but still does not condone the antics in the last five minutes. Mind you, when there are role models like Lee Keegan at the top table ...?

For fucksake lads; it was only a Junior stand fight , not a punch was on target. The fighting in the other games were reserve standard.
No comment please until we see the referee's report.

There has been some amount of over-reaction to one team meeting, and the apparent notion that these will be the only players considered for the Championship in 8mnths time.  As a previous poster has stated – its October. The management team has only been in place since the minor final, just over 3 weeks ago, and already the Warriors are out in force. 

Its like they want to be fit to say “I told you so”, if it does go wrong, and then they’ll be able to quote themselves from October and give themselves a pat on the back as they got it right long before a ball was kicked in anger.
There has been some list of demands already, Posters wanted a full run down of the lads at the first meeting of the year.  Posters want statements issued from the management for the sake of the stability and future of Derry football!?!

So here is my list of demands from the new Derry management:
1.   A personal phone call to explain why I wasn’t at the first meeting and why I’m not require this year.
2.   A personal profile of each and every member of the initial panel. Plus 5 reasons why they were selected ahead of others.
3.   A explanation of their views on the Colm Cooper testimonial.
4.   A complete training schedule, including but not limited to:
        a.   Individual training plans
        b.   When/Where the gym work is taking place
        c.   The drills that will be done on the pitch. (including sketches/drawings)
5.   A thesis on where county matches should take place.  Should we continue with Owenbeg/Celtic Park, or should we   
        take the games around the county.
6.   A total rundown of their tactical plans, including but not limited to:
        a.   Are we going to play with a sweeper?
        b.   Who is going to play this role?
        c.   Will we play with 3 in the ff line? Give reasons
        d.   Will we set up in the same way for every game?
        e.   How do you see the role of the goalkeeper? Will there be rotation in the position during pre-season?
7.   A comment regarding the awful pinky coloured jersey that Derry had to wear 14/15years ago.

And finally…

8.   I would like an input on who is going to be captain and vice-captain for the current season.
     

I hope the management team deal with this as soon as possible.

Best post in a long time  :)
so many pretending to be behind the new management. Give them a chance and trust them to do the right things.

Trust is crucial.  Not sure the trust is as strong after the Clifford disaster. Lack of plan A, no plan B. what was the planning/preparation in training?

I hear a few big names not included in senior panel, biggest surprise being benny heron after a very good championship, any truth in this ?

It’ll be very interesting to see this panel. If Benny heron and Danny heavron aren’t on it will be a major shock as they are the prototype athletic modern day footballer and both are top quality players.
Would be surprised if they do not feature at some stage next year. Very early to be deciding on a squad. Division 3 football will require some experienced hands on board so hopefully no doors have been shut tight yet.

Great atmosphere in An Abhainn Bheag today, crowd still coming in right up to halftime.  They will leave earlier the next time! 6,000 there, great first half but Slaughtneil bossed the game from 15 mins on.  A couple of Dunloy boys decided to tackle Chrissy late on, when it was too late. They didn't stay on their feet too long!  Cormac O'Doherty superb. Very mature performance from the Ulster Champions.

Disgusting and appalling scenes. Kick both clubs out of adult competition for a season.
You are correct. How do they deal with this in Antrim?

Two things
Toby, it's none of your business whether we put in an u21 or not but I don't agree with it

Wild weasel . I've been reliably informed that the fat Douretrasna referee had a long conversation with Harry Tohill after that game

Now now, this is not the tone of united Irishmen.

Just a case of Draperstown shiting in the nest again. In their favour you have to give them credit for getting to a county final with the players they have. The referee in the semi final against Glen and yesterday was very biased towards Slaughtneil. Over and out

Glistening summary from an informed and clearly well educated, football man.

An alternative view - maybe it was a case of being outclassed and well beaten by one of the best club sides of our generation?

I don’t know if you were at the game, but it clearly wasn’t a contest. Slaughtneil were magnificent.

Maybe Bellaghy could have made a game of it.

That’s right, we hammered them in the first round - the absolute shitbags.

I actually feel sorry for you. Every time you’re on here, you’re having a go at Screen.

Just imagine how nice a life you would have if you let go of all the bitterness.

It is tempting to respond to the wolf man talking out of his tone, however he is not a Bellaghy man with such pro british sentiment.

Slaughtneil very impressive today although Screen will be disappointed with their performance, poor start and never really recovered. Primary possession from kick outs was one of Slaughtneil's strengths, strong running from midfield really cut open Screen's defence for the goals. Rodgers, Chrissy and Sammy were excellent in first half and the game was effectively over at halftime. 4-12 is a big return in a final, they may even be better than last year?

Is it fairto say Swatragh are the second best team in the county?

Yes.

In the same way Derry are the third best team in the country.

Good one. Lol!
