We are getting away from Derry's shortcomings,  but this whole modern stuff with cynical play has gotten out of hand. All top level sport has an element of 'cynical play'. Successful teams are not angels. Our only all-Ireland winning team had their share, anyone who thinks differently is in la-la land. Off the ball holding, third man tackes, taking out the runner. These type of things actually used to be worse.
Name them.

Not going to personalize things with our 93 team, but you can't be serious! Look at our current all-Ireland champs. What did all their players do when Rock scored the last point?
As I mentioned earlier,  this is distracting from a symbolic year that our senior football team had. No point in blaming those big bad cynical Kildare men. Carlow seemed to handle them.
Knew you were full of shite about 93.

Greg Blaney must have hit himself off the ball in the marshes! Niall Cahalane must have knocked his own teeth out in the final. Grow up and learn how to watch.
And you are still full of shite trying to discredit our 93 team. Grow a pair and name them.
Don't be silly. We had masters of cynicism on that team and everyone who watched football in that generation new them. We laughed when they played for Derry and we yelled and screamed at them when they played for their clubs because we knew what they were at.
Go ahead big balls and name them. Or are you another bluffer?

Look back at my posts since yesterday's game. Nothing to do with discrediting 93 team. I pointed out that all winners play on the edge, and then some. This was in reference to some crying about 'cycinicle' Kildare. I have no real problem with this, it's reality. We need to stop papering over our senior teams inadequacies with lame excuses. You seem to want to avoid our failings by petty point scoring with me. Maybe that's your thing.   ;)

Btw congrats to all involved in the U20s. Great job!
Typical mouth who can't back up his shite talk and who defends "cycinicle" (new one for me!?) play to win.

On a more positive note for the future, Deegan had no bother giving out the red today, compared to Coldrick's performance yesterday.  Players gave their all against Kildare and definitely restored pride in the jersey. Good crowd support as well which is encouraging moving forward. Fair play to Rodgers, great club and county man.  Don't let the moaners pull and drag us down.

Coldrick was a disgrace. There was no player protection for paudie cassidy who was constantly getting it around the neck. At least 4 times we broke through for goal and 4 times we were dragged down. Crucial monent when we where 4 points down and through on goal. Jersey pulled. Lynch gets sent of for striking and they get a black card. And a hop ball.

I honestly don't know if its home town blindness or rose coloured specs, but i despair at the nonsense some people come out with. Yes there were probably about 4 high challenges most of them on Big Paudie, yellow card offenses. to claim that these were all when we were breaking through on goal is nonsense, most not even near the goals. Crucial moment.... we were actually 6 behind at the time. i think you may find there were several more crucial moments before that, resulting in us being 6 down. Also, during this incident, us chasing the game, cynical pull down by Kildare man (i would expect any senior player to do the same think to protect a lead btw), why did Mark Lynch get involved in nonsense. The Kildare player was going to get a black, we had simple tap over free, time running down and he gets himself red carded and ball is thrown up, time wasted.  We really have no cuteness, not the time to show who has the biggest muscles.
No wonder you would expect that btw with a user name of Drag and Pull. Kildare should have had at least 2 men sent off, no glasses needed.  And then you blame Lynch! I despair at cynics like you who promote cynical play. Maybe you have Kildare blood in you?

That was fairly disappointing now.
Are you talking about Coldrick?

The £24/30 prices for the Donegal game were ridiculous. I brought my da and told him it was 15 quid and subsidised the rest just to make him come. It’s premier league pricing.
It's mad. You can pay £21 to go to Ravenhill and watch pro rugby players, including All Blacks making £500k a year, play a pro sport. But its £24 to go and watch your best mate, a teacher or electrician, play an amateur sport against other teachers and electricians.

Anyway, this one is more reasonable, and hopefully there's a great crowd at it. I think we'll do Kildare. They're a good team on a bad run. But to be honest I think we're a decent team but on a bad run too. Hopefully their supporters stay at home and we have Owenbeg bouncing.
Head you up the road to Ravenhill as often as you like.  Take in a Belfat Giants' game while you are there - their prices are frozen.  All Kildare GAA folk will be very welcome to an Abhainn Bheag on Saturday and why wouldn't they be?  Lúdramán.

Could you not have told him it was 10 quid?  Cheap at that price.

Rousing video on Derry GAA (Twitter) for Saturday. Time again to get behind our team. Doire abú!

Great result for the u20s ! Sounded like a cracking match. Got their tactics right !
Very good performance and result.  Donegal were excellent v Cavan so a big scalp for Derry.

I'd say he'd be going against medical advice if he togged out. Will be a big loss, but as has been pointed out, Chrissy at 3 and plenty of cover in the HB line

Baker Bradley now at the helm @ 'Screen. An interesting appointment
Football or hurling?! Or both?!

I saw G O'Neill playing at mid-field for Banagher a fortnight ago ..... I'm not just thinkin' about the Kildare game I'm thinkin' about players that could be on the panel in 2019 .... how many of the Tyrone players play for their clubs in the same role that Mickey Harte has them playin' ....
Aidan o'shea can play full back because he's a Quality footballer. Gavin O'Neill to full back is the most ridiculous thing I've read on here since Tfal last posted. Your credibility is now in the gutter.
Correct.  Never mind the Nevin suggestion.

There is no point in criticising other posters' selections  if one is not prepared to  offer positive solutions to a definite problem if Brendan Rogers will be out for the Kildare game.The only current panel member who would have the physique and know how in the present Derry panel to mark Flynn is Chris McKaigue.Therefore he should be given a man marking job on him in the same way that he did so effectively against Michael Murphy when he was switched on him.

 I would play either Carlus McWilliams or Liam McGoldrick in the traditional centre half back position  if that is required.Both are very comfortable on the ball and  are good readers of the game. I would have James Kielt in the half forward line instead of the smaller,lighter though promising but very young Patrick Coney.Kildare are a big physical side and we will need  to replicate that whilst keeping our speedy players.I know Kielt is not the fastest but he can score so hopefully management can devise a system to accommodate him. Indeed the speed and industry of Niall Toner should also be occupying the selectors minds. Doire Abu.
Not much point talking shite either. Thought we were supposed to be going forward not backwards, Nevin?  Tell me this, how much time did Coney spend in the half forward line on Sunday?

In his minor years was a very good back who reads the game well and is comfortable on the ball .... but marking a big man might not work so well.  McErlain has to think outside the box here and consider one of our better 'traditional type' full backs ..... the problem is I can't think of one ... maybe Conor Nevin or convert Gavin O'Neill (Banagher)... not so sure ... !!!! .... has anybody got any ideas
Holy Jaysus!! Are you for real?
