London Intermediate Football Championship

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

Joes looked to be on top yet they were beaten and the Cu's were nearly warming down at haf time. Going in 1 7 to a pint down at half time.

Great turn around in the second half, Peter Phelan was the difference between the sides

Hon the Cu's

Joes won the Sheils cup on Sunday, is there anyone that can stop them doing the clean sweep in the intermediate? Looks like it could be Taras and Moindearg battling it out to avoid the drop. Any views from the weekends games?

So who do people think are going through in the groups? Technically all 8 teams can still win the Championship though Moin Dearg and Tara would require big wins (both by at least 14 points) and the other result to go their way.

I watched the Cu's v Joe's game and it wasn't a great spectacle. It was a scrappy and low scoring game. The referee was a head case and nearly lost it with one of the Cu's sideline when he gave a point that (in my opinion went over) but the Cu's sideline didn't agree and a heated debate evolved.

There wouldn't be much of a step up from the junior to intermediate if this game was anything to go by.

Who was the referee? I was at it also, haven't noticed him around before.
I must say he made a few strange decisions, giving a yellow card to a cú chulainns player when in my opinion it was a clear black card. Also blowing up for half time when the cú Chulainns had possession inside the joes square just about to shoot at goal.
Agreed it wasn't a classic, and if joes are the team to beat then this championship is wide open for anyone to win.

Any word on the poor fella (number 23) that had a bad injury in the second half? Hopefully it isn't as bad as was feared.

Has to be said the championship has been very poor this season. The standard is way down on previous years.Think whoever wins will be in for a rude awakening in the AB, if they beat the junior champions that is!

Joes are probably the best of the bunch, with Garryowen starting to find abit of form.

What has happened to Taras? Used to be a big senior club and from what I have seen been awful this year, Moindreag who clean sweeped the junior last year just as bad!

I agree. Standard is gone way back in Intermediate. Heston must be gone way back if they couldn't even get out of the group, they were senior 2 years ago! Compared to last years standard even, I know NLS won it handy enough in the end but they would definitely hockey every team in the intermediate this year. It will be a poor showing in the AB by whoever makes it out. To be fair I think a lot of teams are struggling for numbers and I believe the Joes have a decent sized squad which is why they are probably the pick of the bunch. London Gaa has a lot to answer for though, they don't exactly give lads incentive to go play in Greenford when the dressing rooms are so horrendous, the pitches are muck and not a flag or linesman to be seen. Lucky to even get a ref these days! Ruislip isn't much better. CuChulainns and Robert Emmetts had to walk off the field in Ruislip earlier this year on a sunday afternoon league game because no ref. Its a joke and they don't seem to be addressing any of these issues.

i see alot of moaning on here about lack of refs and linesmen. the county board may be at fault for a heck of a lot of other things but are your clubs sending any people on ref courses etc??? each club should have a ref thats the way it used to be, we have to help ourselves the county board can only work with what they have, large number of fixtures every weekend to see over. if clubs arent encouraging people to become match officials then there isnt alot the county board can do about it!

Hawkeye, It cant be argued about the poor standard of refereeing but that is purely because who else is going to ref a game on a Saturday evening at 6pm or so. Theres some brilliant young refs but they dont want to be doing certain games especially when their team has their own game, the refereeing standard has been as poor as the intermediate standard this year in my opinion, bit of a let down.

What is the draw for All Britain does anybody know???

Hawkeye, fair enough there isn't a conveyor belt of new refs coming from the clubs but that's no excuse for having teams line out on the field and the ref assigned to the game not showing up or not being told he needs to be there! If theres a lack of refs available on a given day then the game should not be fixed, don't leave 40 lads travel to Ruislip to find the ref not there. And that is a regular occurrence as it has happened to my club 3 times this year. 3 hour round trip wasted, lads getting time off work, the players possibly and supporters definitely paying £5 at the gate, then no ref everyone goes home.

Why is everyone talking up Joe's? They drew with Cu Chulainns at the weekend who had been hammered by Harlesden.

Joes have been talked up because,except for one game (the first game of the year) in the murphy cup they are un beaten and have casually made there way through a fairly sub standard division. They have won what they have needed too. Thought Brendan's would do one over on them in the semi but it wasn't to be. What are the views on the final? Can Garryowen do the unexpected and make their way to senior? it would be strange with the possibility they could be playing junior league and senior championship next year. Far more interest in the Junior in this forum and no word on the senior or intermediate at all.

Replying To WideBall1:  "First round of group games this weekend - Any predictions ?"
Haven't seen many games this year but you'd think Joes are favourites? Should be interesting to see what Neasden will do!

Cilldara2012 (UK) - Posts: 88 - 22/07/2016 12:22:47    1888137


I see Neasden won handsomely in their first game. Thoughts on who are favourites this year?

Cilldara2012 (UK) - Posts: 88 - 03/08/2016 15:14:32    1894844


Neasden beat a very poor Heston team so wouldnt judge them on that and apparently got lucky v Harlesden. Josephs have to be favourites as they beat the Brendans handy enough last weekend and they were suppose to be decent this year. Joes to beat Harlesden in the final!
