Qualifiers Draw

(Oldest Posts First)

So lads its Armagh at home this weekend. What's your thoughts. We beat them in a challenge by 6 points a few weeks ago. Can't see that happening again doo.

Depends on what players we get back and as far as I know its Saturday the 13th not next weekend.

I think he'll be out on the weekend of the 13th like ourselves. The GAA wanted to give the losing provincial semi-finalists an extra week off before going into the qualifiers. So the Down, Roscommon, Clare and Waterford games should be next week and Leitrim, Wexford, Kildare and Cavan games should be the following week.

May the Lord have mercy on Leitrim. This will be the mother of all hammerings. About 5-20 to 0-4 if it stops at it.

No bother to us at all, if we play for 70mins like we did in the 2nd half yesterday we will put Armagh away.

Should the management step down now so that we cud put an interim manager in place and try to get the lads back ? If they have the best interest of Leitrim football at heart that is what they will do. Posters are putting up rubbish about restoring pride with the second half. It was a complete disgrace. Does anyone agree ?

the lads wont come back now, too much has happened and been said, it would make things worse in my opinion

also would it be fair on the lads on the panel to be dropped after their efforts, plus the 4 lads have missed 3 weeks of training and would take time to sharpen up

its done now get armagh out of the way, new management in and give him the remit of a clean slate and view the championships over the next few months and move on from there

Something needs to be done at underage. The rossies/Cavan are building at underage, that will improve senior team over next few years. Plus, county board showed their combined intelligence by releasing that statement to national media about the 4 lads. A massive reality check is needed, no county can survive without 4 of its best, especially not Leitrim. Dark days.

i dont think it was the initial statement that caused the problem but whoever gave the names to the media, and the subsequent statements just added fuel to the fire and ruled out any chance of mediation

Agreed. I just think it could have been dealt with better. As far as the Armagh game goes, lets hope it's not 20 point plus beating. Players have put massive effort in so ya can only feel sorry for them really.

I'd say it might be 30 , Wicklow are arguably a better team than Leitrim and Armagh won by over 20 against them, U could have a guess at 35pts aswell with Leitrim being wrecked tired three weekends playing in a row. The GAA have a lot to answer for they sorted out Kildare with a break
