Derry V Dubs

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Great win for you lads. We missed four great goal chances but no complaints you were the much better team on the day. The Dublin team selections are baffling at the moment, especially with so little game time left until championship.

All the best in Ulster. Hope you win it.

PS - hats off to the two gents on St Cecelias gate yesterday. They couldn't have been nicer and had banter with the Dubs after the game.

Well done Derry.

Fantastic performance and more than worthy of your victory.

No arguments here at all.

Great welcome we got up there yesterday too so thanks for that.

Fair play Derry, mighty win!

Where have you guys come from? Ye have been like ghosts!
Tyrone, Donegal, Down have been the big guns in Ulster these last years and then somehow ye lads have nipped around the back and sprung up out of nowhere to bite everyone in the ***!!.......(must have been something to do with the fleadh)!!!

'Beware Derry' is the watchword this year!

Great to see Derry going so well, its great for Ulster and again this year it is so competitive it is impossible to call who will win it. I am not sure what the story is but it would be great for me a neutral to see E Bradley back in the Derry colours in the summer if at all possible. Best of luck this year great to see ulster going well

I wouldn't be all that sure that Eoin will be back at all. I have no inside info or anything like that but it's hard to see where he would fit into the way Derry are playing except as an impact sub when chasing a game. My read on what Brian McIver wants from his forwards is that workrate, intelligence and unselfishness are more highly valued than unpredictable brilliance. Every man on this Derry team must put the team first. That's how it rolls under this management as far as I can see: no exceptions.

It looks like your right. Eoin is been chased by 2 or 3 Irish League soccer clubs, and apparently will play gaelic in New York over the summer if he fails to make the Derry panel.

It is always useful to have a talented forward in reserve when needed, on those difficult Championship matches. But as things stand, the Derry team are on fire and managing very well as they are.

Why aren't James Kielt and Ryan Bell involved today ? Two of the more talented players in the Derry squad. Best of luck

After staying in Div. 1 everything else was a bonus. Hopefully the guys will learn plenty from yesterday's game. Dublin purring like a Mercedes truck customised by AMG right now.

I am disappointed, not in the derry players and management but for them. They are much much better than their performance showed yesterday.
I know they will put this to rights and am looking forward to the championship. They have been fantastic and are still on a steep learning curve.
so I thank them for their great year so fsr and am looking forward to more.

Derryman I totally agree with your comment. The players and management will be hurting enough after yesterday's defeat without keyboard warriors putting in their penny's worth. The most disappointing thing was that we failed to show the type of football we were playing all year.

Get out to Celtic Park on Sunday May 25th and cheer the lads on against Donegal and yesterday's game will be a distant memory

Couldnt agree more with the previous posters - remember this team are still a work in progress - that Dublin team are light years ahead of everyone at the moment and will win their 3rd all ireland in 4 years this coming sept of that i have no doubt we have J Kielt Ryan Bell and PJ to come back into our Panel and i have been immensely proud of all the lads to date - they will learn from this and i still feel we can give ulster a real lash in the next year or 2 - Doire abú!

We took a heavy defeat and didnt perform the way we can so we have to dust ourselves down and prepare for donegal,hope morale isnt dented to much and take out our frustrations against donegal next day out.Monaghan showed us the way to approach this game they kicked points from distance and attacked swiftly to beat donegals blanket defence,im worried who can kick points from distance lynch only kielt mightn play.

The Management decision to allow Dublin to win 100% of their kick outs is one of the main reasons we took a hammering. Could you imagine before the game that we would allow a team like Dublin to get such easy ball. Folly in the extreme, and now in the aftermath it could only be described as a kamaikaze decision.

Monaghan approached and dealt with the Donegal that was put in front of them.

I suspect a meaner Donegal will be on show on May 25th. Kicking points from distance is still risky, as on an off day it just won't happen for you.
Derry will need to take a leaf out of Dublin's book to beat Donegal. Example: Win all your kick outs, and try and turn every kick out into a score.
