JoeJ - didn't see game, so can't comment. Was the sending off not justified?

It was most definitely & the chap in question will be lucky to wear the red and white of louth again in my opinion.

We are not all bad losers lads, some of us see the bigger picture. Derry were the best side for 70% of the match IMO
The sending off was warranted cant complain whatsoever.
I have to say I was impressed with the way Derry kept possession and moved the ball around, showed great composure and cuteness.
Best side we've played this year, deserve their promotion .

You obviously spent or spend a lot of time on the bench. Louth were far from destroyed, Derry got a goal in the last 2 minutes it was nip and tuck before that. I would be worrying for your own county

Hows life in Div 3???

In Brian McIver Derry have one of the best coaches in Ireland. His work with Down in 2010 was massively underrated and it's no coincidence we haven't reached similar heights in the last few years. Derry won't be easy beat by anyone whilst McIver is at the helm.

Sorry fellow derry Gaa fans . I find it a little funny and ironic that your all saying how wondferful derry are, under the heading Derry football hits an all time low. In my opinion you are probably the 3rd or 4th best team in Ulster behind, Donegal, Tyrone, and then I would consider Down and Armagh to be as good as or slightly better than yourselves. Considering there are 8 teams in Ulster its not a great position to be in.

We had a bad year in 2012 but under new management were one game away from promotion we are a young team with potential,Armagh could be down to div 3 and Down playing in div2 next year,winning breeds confidence we have beaten all leinster teams so far in the league wexford laois longford and louth.As for louth i think your behind Dublin kildare, Laois, Westmeath, then on a par with the rest.We are definitely behind Donegal and Tyrone at the minute the rest is even enough.Having just won the Mc Crory cup for the first time in 10 years things arent as bad as people who started this thread say.I attended the GO Games and their is plenty of talented young players still to be developed in the county and confident for the future.

JoeJ - ..."Sorry fellow derry Gaa fans . I find it a little funny and ironic that your all saying how wondferful derry are, ......."

I find it a little funny (definitely not ironic) that you seem to be getting a different version of this thread. Yip, the comments about the Louth game should maybe have been put in a new thread, but please quote me one Derry poster on this thread or any others in 2013 that say Derry are a wonderful football team (don't bother going back to 2012, there's definitely no such comments there).

Cautious optimism is as about as estatic as it gets here and with good reason.

But thanks for reminding us where we stand in Ulster and feel free to provide me with few of those quotes talking about how wonderful we are.

Meanwhile back on planet Earth, so far so good with McIver at the helm. Promotion to Div. 1 would be a wonderful (sorry JoeJ) and unexpected bonus so early in his reign.

joej, there's nobody on here bumming up Derry as being the best thing since sliced bread. Derry fans were very pleased, however, that we won a tricky away game in Drogheda after appearing to be in trouble with ten minutes to go, especially since this is the kind of situation in which Derry have performed very poorly the past couple of years. As for being behind Donegal and Tyrone, Donegal are All-Ireland champions and Tyrone lead Division 1 - there are quite a few counties in that boat!

I have put a request on the louth board that they come and take him back.

derryman (Derry) - Posts: 3246 - 27/03/2013 21:56:02    1357735


seen your request derryman.... would you not hold onto him for another while at least, give us all down here a bit of a break. i'd consider it a personal favour!!!!

Tell you what wolf man. I'll have a word with the Tyrone lads. They are always happy to have an argument about football. maybe they will take him for a while and give us both a break.

is their any islands of the derry coast where you could put him.

There is a big one sort of east of us . He should have a lot of mates over there who know little about Gaelic football.

Stick him into the fountain in Derry for a few nights and he'll be grand there

Orlaith (Derry) - Posts: 4282 - 28/03/2013 18:16:19    1358159


But even if we duck him in the fountain, will he ever tell us which Ulster county he reckons no longer exists?
