Antrim V Sligo

(Oldest Posts First)

Wondering what people reckon about this game. I'm pretty optimistic. We have had the upper hand on Antrim the last few times we have played. I think the full forward line of Coen, Marren & Murphy will do damage.

Terrible decision by the ref to award Antrim the winning free. Eamon O'Hara is dead right, it's time to get some professional refs and get rid of these terrible refs.

Some positives to take out of the game however - Marren, Brehony and Mcgee seemed sharp up front and Mullen had a good game at midfield. Backs tightened it up a lot in the second half.

It was a game i taught we could have won but i taught a draw would probably have been a fair result. People were giving out about the ref for the last free against charlie but i would be askin charlie why did he carry the ball into the tackle when he had no need 2 something which he does time and time again and never seems to learn from and he coaches kids for a living its also something Egan done all nite and who in my opinion lasted alot longer than he should have don't know why he was so mad when taken off. Martyn was in trouble all nite with Mccann who was the best player on the pitch by a long way.McManus doesn't look the answer at centre back but he deserves another game r 2 in fairness 2 him. Mullen done well in d middle. half forward line was quiet but worked had and marren was the only one of d full forward line dat played well. Murphy is still very young and i have high hopes for him. Very surprised to seem james clarke coming on ahead of McGee although he did kick a great score. Its vital that we bet wexford at home next sunday or else any hope of promotion is over.

2 dissapointing results for sligo over the weekend.both senior and u 21 teams threw away games they should have won.this is the most dissapointing aspect.similarly in both games the forwards failed to perform for most of the game.in the u 21 vs game westmeath the sligo corner backs were excellent.but the fullback was found wanting.the corner backs gave a reasonable performance in the senior game.
this shows a lack of quality fullbacks in the county at all levels and we need to find a solution to this problem
the similarities between the nature of the games the performance and the result are quite amazing and show the trend of sligo football at hte minute.i do however tip both teams to come back strong and win there next games.

Not sure how anyone can argue that the last free should not have been a free. It was a blatant throw of the ball, as soon as the Sligo man did it I said to the brother - can't believe he'd be so stupid, ref has to give a free. It was needless and blatant. Thank God for it.

What is the story with David Kelly, when is he available to play? Surely Colm Mc Gee deserved a starting place against Antrim? Stephen Coen needs to find his scoring boots pronto.

On viewing the match in casement I think we were unluck not to come away with a victory and at least a draw.
Overall I think the team will do well this year but they need a win next sunday.
I think Johny Martin will grow into the full back role N o worries as far as Ross is concerned harrison needs to let the ball go quicker and concentrate on defending
Mcmanus was reasonable need to drive forward more and use his power but at last we have a centre back with a little height and strength should improve in any case he is our only hope Davey and mcgovern should also be fine need to watch out that johny is not isolated with a taller marker on kickouts
high hopes for mullen in mid field needs a partner
Brehony costelloe hughes maybe
coen marren murphy just marren
subs mcgee good for frees taylor has potential but needs to gave it alot more
