Fear, Iím surprised at many of your comments there.

The one about not wanting to be from Shanty is disgusting.

Tickle that's strong language.  If I hadn't a thicker skin and knew that yiu are a good lad I'd nearly be offended. All i intimated was that the club would rather be in Culmore so they could take from that area more freely. Without looking back at my comments I can't remember saying anything offensive. I stand by the veracity of all I said.  There shouldn't be anything in there that would be surprising as they are all facts in the common knowledge of city folk. My own club has closer links to your club than any other. Btw you could lists dozens of things that could be changed in my club and I'd hazard a guess to say I'd agree with you.
Tickle is 100% correct.  No point trying to pull back now. The board knows exactly what you were intimating, as does Tickle.

The board? Sounds scary. Lmfao. Tickle can speak for himself Mr Ballyarnett.  Bit like I'm from High Park not creggan.  That's a city joke. Tickle will get it. You won't.
Your rant is there for all the board to read and you were not joking.

A squad of 45 named in the new minor squad. Very noticeable the amount from South Derry on it-33 from South Derry,12 from North Derry. This squad has been picked by a Donegal man and a Tyrone man so no biased opinions this time

No surprise in that, south derry has always been where the football strong hold is in the county, your stating the obvious, however I fully take your point that it has been selected by a Donegal man.
Why does it matter where in Derry they are from? So long as the best players are picked I couldn't care less if they are from Bellaghy or Magilligan.
I was just stating the facts. It was very obvious and really stood out to me.

Take a look at the grading of teams from u14 to senior. More South Derry than North Derry teams in Divison 1 at every age group. Meaning the teams from South Derry are the stronger teams, because they have the better player and obviously if we are picking a panel of the best players their is going to be more from South Derry?

it's the exact same in the senior panel announced this morning.
Having read this post,isn't it ironic that the county training facility is in in North Derry and our County pitch is in Derry city. It makes you wonder. They invest so much money in the city yet all we have as a county to show for it so far is Neil Forester.
I'm not from the city but that's a negative post. There is some good work going on in the city and coaching at underage level in the city clubs has improved greatly. 3 city players on the minor squad just announced. There is a great opportunity to improve our Derry teams through the city and it is only beginning to be realised in my opinion.

45 is a ridiculous number. Even with the change to u17 there are far too many 2001s in there. Paddy Campbell will look after his own. The county is bending over backwards to push his club on.
Ye what? Pushing his club so much that they allow another club to form in the same catchment area? Please stop talking cac.

I take it you dint know city too well. Steelstown is in shantallow(although they'd like not to be). Culmore is not in shantallow. Anyhow sure they suck the poor wee Ardmores of this world to death whether by design or otherwise. How many steelstown players pass clubs closer to them?. They have 35 of a panel at most ages and don't make many subs. It only deprives lads an opportunity. Plenty to go around. They let? Wise up its not a nazi state we run. I speaketh no Cac good sir.
More cac. If anything, Steelstown is in Ballyarnett, just below the village of Steelstown. Many of their players are from the Culmore area and Hollybush PS is one of their feeder schools. Ask Paddy the next time you see him. Some of your rant above is not only inaccurate but ridiculous. Jealousy maybe, as Steelstown is one of the best run clubs in the city.

I've been hearing the exact same comments for the past 30 years and nothing has changed.
Explain please how nothing has changed?

To add to what the weasel has said we should have more than enough quality players in Derry to compete in the McKenna cup and Div 3 of the NFL until the Slaughtneill players are available. The panel from last year added to by the stay away players should leave us very competitive. Have all the players who opted out last year made themselves available again? Why has no panel been announced yet?
Keep an eye on the Derry website as that is how panels are normally announced.

Having just seen the McKenna Cup draw, does anyone know  if Damian McErlain and most of the other County managers are carrying on the proud and fair  tradition of previous  managers releasing their college-based players to play for the colleges,especially in the group stages of the competition?
No doubt Mickey Harte will continue with his unfair and not so proud tradition!

Got to feel sorry for the cattle around Slaughtneil, the poor f**kers never get milked!

Congrats to the Emmetts, stronger than last years team?

Definitely, in my opinion, some of the younger ones playing with greater maturity now and putting up bigger scores, whch is a must to challenge for the Andy Merrigan. Fantastic achievement,

Good luck to Slaughtneil tomorrow, despite injuries they probably should have enough to win. Would be the first ever Derry club to win back to back Ulster Club titles never mind the double Ulster treble!

Sorry to hear of Frankie's death, he taught in St. Paul's, Kilrea, for many years also. Derry manager for back to back Ulster titles in 75/76 and indeed a great Gael. Many of the players on those teams would attribute their senior success to Frankie's vision and leadership - and at a very difficult political time trying to bring men from the Bogside and South Derry together to train. He was a font of knowledge re all things GAA and I think he was on the Glen team which won the All Ireland Scůr Quiz in the 70s. I measc laochra na nGael go raibh a anam Gaelach.

Donít listen to fake news. From a very reliable source not a single Derry club put forward a candidate for either U17 or U20 manager. They were given six weeks to discuss and nominate but none came back with a name.
Are you referring to Brolly fake news?

Joe isn't happy - and he's stopping giving money to Club Derry

https://twitter.com/JoeBrolly1993/status/931887386367324161

Joe is generally unhappy and has been for a number of years. Pretend loyalty may fool you but not those who know that Joe will implode very soon, probably live on RT….  Club Derry will be all the richer without him. Joe, who craves to be one of the lads but never was and never will be so he makes more noise to get more attention.

Personally feel it was an absolute load of bollix ever changing county football from u18 and u21 to u17 and u20's

Agree Toby

.... U17's probably geared to suit the school system on the southern side of what will be the 'new hard border' dividing this island

.... the U20's  I just don't know

Was the MacRory Cup not geared at under 18 and a half once to suit the school system in Ulster? Does U17 not benefit the whole island? No division.

Rodgers v McBrearty was a fantastic battle on Saturday. In the first 15 minutes Rodgers went one to one and beat him to every ball. Three Kilcar players in a row tried to take Rodgers out as he tore up the sideline, McBrearty with a punch to the ribs, Hegarty with a fist to his face and Eoin McHugh with some sort of a karate kick attempt to the head. Second 15 McBrearty won, although Rodgers was taken out by McGinley as he tried to stop McBrearty scoring from play. Nothing should take away from an outstanding performance by our County and Ulster Champions, against the odds at halftime with O'Dohery gone.  Kilcar did not leave it behind, Slaughtneil went for in the second half and won it with top class football.
