Replying To LongfordgaaAbú:  "Last year Christie had almost everyone he might want to pick from at the start of the league, and we didn't win a single game until the very end when it didn't matter. The manager before him and the one before that and the one before that all had similar issues with some lads committing and some not, and others not seeing eye-to-eye with the managers methods. I agree with the comment above about personal responsibility. Might be time for a bit of navel gazing rather than trying to push the blame. We are a Division 4 outfit, and the quality of our local championship bears that out. We will beat Tipp, but we will slip up somewhere else before the league is out because we don't have enough depth or talent in the panel (credit to the lads who have committed, but that is the reality). Also I don't think it has anything to do with the amount of Intermediate lads in there - Monaghan panel at the weekend had plenty of Intermediate and Junior players in their squad and they are ten years in Division 1.

As for the individual player bashing, I looked back at the comments posted on here after the O'Byrne Cup final, and only one person voiced the opinion that the player in question came on and calmed things down. Spinx decided to attribute that view to 'a few people' so that he could have a go at the lad, who along with others has given great commitment to the county over the years! Not surprising given that this is the same poster who went onto the Westmeath forum just after the Lomans v Killoe game last Autumn and posted... "Well done Lomans on keeping the cocky boys of Longford club football quiet for a while". Yep he really wrote that! With friends like those, who needs enemies."
Wouldn't be like spinx to have agenda's against certain players or clubs. Funny oul man he is. One day we might see some positive thoughts from him."
Ah come on, I'm allowed have my point of view, just like everyone else.
This is a forum afterall!!
You need to take a chill pill and relax mate.
Remember....those that have should give. Peace, love and joy to all.

First everyone tried to tell me I was a Clonguish man.
Then they try to convince me I'm Padraig Gill.
Now, they try and tell me I'm Garmin.
Well lads......ye'll have to try again!
Oh, and what post are you saying is identical?
I'm too lazy to search back through pages to see what was written word for word.....or should I say copy and pasted under a different username according to B&G lol

Apparently if your view is not in line with what a few posters have then you should not be allowed to post.

Administrator, I'm not sure what happened my previous 2 or 3 messages but I have hit 'reply' but they have come up published as if I copied and pasted them.
This has happened on posts a few months ago.

Abysmal.... Absolutely shocking stuff in Pearse Park today. I don't know where we go from here. Season is now finished for us.

Waterford in 2 weeks time will be tough based upon today's display. How much longer will they put up with Christie and co

He needs to drop a few of the older heads who have been performing well below par and draft in some new blood. Conor Keenan and Podge Gill surely should be given a shot in the starting 15. Can be no worse than what's out there already.

Ah ye'll beat Waterford. I'm not messing in that I'm nervous of facing Longford in Longford as a Leitrim fan. I think we can beat Wexford at home and Carlow away and ye will derail us and then Laois will too. Always found Longford a hard game for Leitrim to win down through the years

Longford will be out of the promotion race when Leitrim meet them but agree history suggests a typical local derby.

Funny appointment for Gerry Carberry considering he is out of the country with UN until late April.. He was Ryan Caseys no.2 in Granard I'd imagine its a joint management they work and Gerry is just showing as lead this time around. Good appointment for them.
