And a win for Laois too. So important that we win tomorrow.

Big win this evening for Carlow over Leitrim. When we host Carlow it could be crucial. Theyíre a strong team

. We tried to buy tickets the day before but it seems the GAA ticket site only sold them until midnight on Friday.

The cheaper pre match tickets were available in O'Neills up to COB on Saturday.

Super result yesterday, was worried about that one. With Wicklow up next and them not going well, hopefully its a perfect 3 wins out of 3 as we head into games that are potentially more difficult.

Hard not to be impressed with the workrate, commitment and set up.

Very frustrating not to get the draw at the end and I really think the ref should have have shown a bit of common sense and blown after Neill's free. So important to stay playing at this level, and ultimately it probably will come down to games against Offaly and Laois. If we do end up in bottom 2 it means a playoff which will be a huge game.

Beating Laois next week is a hard ask away from home and they did well on Saturday v Galway too.

If we end up us v Laois in a playoff, anyone know if we would be at home given the regular league game against them is away?

Thats also the first time in ages that an Antrim game had to be delayed to allow the crowd to get in - I was glad I had bought my ticket in advance!

Buying online for £11 in advance is the best option but then there is a £2 charge for postage! Iím happy to print my own ticket but doesnít seem to be an option.

There could and should have been more support there but 'outnumbered by Leitrim people' is nonsense. There was one wee pocket of Leitrim supporters up on the hill and another fella wandering around with a huge Leitrim flag - furled.

Very solid performance, string in most areas really, a few individual errors that can be worked on and ironed out. 15 points is a good total and there were some terrific scores among them. Would have been nice to have seen a goal too and it was on the cards a few times but last pass just let us down. Thats a very minor quibble.

Think we will do well this league.

Strong looking team, looking forward to the match. Best of luck to the lads.

I only got there for 2nd half, the goals conceded were far too soft, suspect last night will have helped clarify some starting positions for the league.

Hopefully the lads get another win tonight - I see some talk in the IN about a win opening the way towards a semi final place but I would have thought our score difference v Tyrone would rule that out? Another competitive game this weekend would be useful prep for the league to come.

Am I reading that wrong, or maybe a mathematician out there can help point the way towards a semi final spot??

No CJ yesterday?

Between the two games so far loads of players have seen action. Don't think its a big deal that CJ didn't appear yesterday. Niall McKeever had a very good first half but wasn't on in the second. I think it was a chance to get lots of players playing.

4 pages after getting stuffed, 4 posts after winning! Strange bunch

Yeah that says it all really. The naysayers will have been disappointed today.

Very encouraging overall. Though when our keeper / defenders play keep ball along the full back line I swear my heart rate goes up quicker than during a parkrun. Our goals were all well taken, I think we have forwards to do damage to most teams, with the right ball played in. Sean Burkeís work for Conor Murrayís goal was great to watch. A good day.

Not sure Woodlands will accommodate the potential number of spectators very well. Not saying there will be a massive crowd but itís a poor pitch from spectators point of view and first home match of the new era will attract a decent enough attendance.

Would you be welcome back in Woodlands?
