Replying To Sligonian:  "Sligo v Dublin is fixed for Cavan at 1.45pm on Sunday week. Hopefully a bigger Sligo crowd turns up to give the lads a boost. We need all the help we can get. Die hards will go regardless but we need more. The Sligo support against Kildare and Roscommon was very poor and the seniors deserve more than that. I know its not easy if you think we will get hammered but support makes a difference."
I hope you are right and I will be there, but being realistic there's going to be a seriously small Sligo support at the game. I have no interest in being negative on here but I strongly suspect that we will do well to bring 500, especially if the sun is out which is quite ironic as we usually have no shortage of sun-shiners for a championship game! I think it is a pity, as I genuinely feel this group has given so much to the Sligo cause this year. But the reasons for the lack of interest are well laid out by others above. It was the worst Sligo support I've seen since the early 90s at a championship game, above in The Hyde. This time 5 years ago Derry were heading into Division 4 with a couple of hundred supporters. We will turn it around too and we're already moving in the right direction. Food for thought - zero of last years excellent U20 winning Tyrone team started at the weekend. So patience and proper planning/management is going to be absolutely crucial over the next 3 years.

Now that we are getting crowds and great success form the 20s, if we get thousands into Markievicz Park it will lift everything.""
It's very simple.
Adult ticket €25, student/oap €20, juvenile €5. Let's say family of 4 you could be paying €60 (2 adults 2 juveniles), family of 5 €65+ (2 adults 3 juveniles), family of 6 €70+ (2 adults 4 juveniles) and chances are most people are going to have atleast one student which isn't even accounted for in my pricing.
So firstly it's costly.
Everyone has come on here from other counties to say that they knew Sligo wouldn't win a game or that they shouldn't be in this competition. So would the Sligo people not know that themselves considering they're from the county. Why would they pay over €70 on tickets, plus money on fuel and food for away games when they could go off with the family on a rare hot day. People can say all they like that it's bad support but it's easy to say that but then contradict yourself by saying that the matches are dead rubbers because they weren't going to win. Which is the exact thing Roscommon people have done saying one second the Sligo support was poor, but the next saying they knew they would win and Shane Curran was 100% correct and anyone with a brain would know that. And I'm not complaining that they said that because it was highly likely they would win. I just don't get the contradiction.
Thirdly, it's easier to support a team that's winning. Yes the u20s had a larger support, yes they are underage, but tell me this : In a county like Sligo who are starved of success would you rather bring your kids and pay money to see a team who's going to lose or pay half the price to see a team who's going to win and have a great day out.
There's no two ways about it the Sligo support for the seniors has been poor. BUT… everyone is here to look at Sligo and saying how their crowds are so poor yet the same people are saying it's going to be a cake walk for Sligos opposition. So should Sligo people be paying the guts off 200/300 euro to see 3 group games that the whole country thinks they're going to lose.
Don't get me wrong, I've gone to 6 games this year in the league and all of the championship ones so far. But I don't expect every Sligo fan to fork out such money and give up so much time when the whole country thinks we are going to lose.

My whole point is : Don't bother complaining about the Sligo support if you're going to say in the next breath that the game was a waste and Sligo were always going to lose. I don't care if you say it's a championship game and therefore there should be more support… because I disagree with that. McEntee from the outset said realistically we aren't going to beat these teams and we are looking to just improve. So in my opinion, if anything Sligo should have bigger crowds at their league games.

Did Armagh pack out their stadium before they went on their run of form the last few years. Did Derry have the same crowds they do now when they were in division 3 and 4. No no they didn't.

I can only imagine the amount of people that are going to come and still give out about the support and give out about this post. But tell me this… honestly if your county was going into a match costing you €50-€100 minimum on tickets, €20 on fuel, money to feed the family for the day, during a heatwave (in a county full of beaches), bank holiday weekend so high chance of family/friends home, not expected to win, not given a beggars chance by anyone but the few die hard supporters. A division 4 team against the 3rd placed Div 1 team.

Would you go???
I've been to over 80% of the games, but I don't expect everyone to do the same until we are a division 2 team. Because then we will have a better chance. That's just life. It's realistic.
We are improving and in a few years I've no doubt we will be competing with the Div 1 and 2 teams. But we aren't there yet but I know for a fact we will be in soon time. And I will come back to this post when we are.
The End. Thank you."

I love it, keep it coming. All this bashing particularly at me because I said I wasn't traveling to Roscommon for a watery championship game. I really like how the orphans (posters who haven't the balls to say what county they are from but hide behind a foreign country) join in the sermons. No word on all the games I went to. Sligo supporters had to go to London twice plus several trips to the east and south east of the country. We had 5 away games in the U.20 , and there were also a few minor games. I didn't stop anyone from going last Sunday. Have these holier than thou posters gone on the Donegal, Mayo,Cork, Dublin, Kildare, Kerry etc etc sites to ask where was your support last Sunday . Fantastic to see so much interest by other people in our county. I never remember as much traffic on this site before. These key board warriors are so brave.

Replying To ShellyGael:  "Can we just start taking club scene so the outsiders will go back to their own cabins?!"
Would like to talk about nothing more. I would love if all those player on the fringes of the Sligo team were allowed play with the club this weekend. Laffey, Keaney,Rooney,Lavin,Smith, Flynn,Gavigan and countless more lads are getting no football at the moment. Most of them didn't see 15 mins for Sligo between league and championship. They won't even be at the pace for club games when they return. I don't really have an opinion on the 2 points for the early rounds as compared to 3 points for latter stages. The league must go on without the county lads. We will know more at the end of the league. Any team that hasn't points on the board by this weekend are already in relegation trouble

There is nothing for Sligo to turn around, there was good support in London, at the New York game and at Connacht Final

The problem is the group stages, the cost of going to 3 games in 4/5 weeks and the prices the GAA are charging. They could have done a package deal to help reduce cost but these group games do nothing to attract supporters. Supporters are way down throughout the country.

Firstly ticket prices was cheaper than the Connacht championship matches and Sligo even brought more to the New York game than the last two games. Living in general is costly as is supporting your county team.

Kildare at home was winnable game and against your neighbours shouldn't need a reason for going. home championship games and against your neighbour in the last 16 of the championship is more rare for Sligo than sunny days in the summer.

As I've said already the senior team is the flagship team, Sligo Senior manager called for a bigger support and it's fallen on deaf ears. Thick and thin is supporting a team in all team sports, don't expect sell outs crowds to turn up but Sligo should be getting more than 2k at the Kildare home match and bringing more than a few hundred to Hyde Park last Sunday.

You went out of your way to give excuses not to attend that Roscommon championship game and you'll have another excuse not to attend the Dublin game on June 18th, already gave you a ready made one which seemed to hit a nerve.

8,000 in Hyde
6,000 in Clones
11,000 in Castlebar (Mayo have more than that at league games)
8,000 in Ballybofey
14,000 in Cork
8,000 in Nolan Park

Are ye also on Clare and Monaghan's page berating them or Dublin and Kildare with massive populations and only 8,000

We told ye there was going to be a poor Sligo turnout, we gave our reasons as to why this was going to be the case and yet ye are still on here repeating yerselves. It is not just Sligo fans that have opted that it is too much to with little benefit to support their county in a flawed new structure that has failed to capture the enthusiasm of supporters

You wouldnt want to base supporting sligo on their ability to win games or you wouldnt follow them for too long for last 30 years!
Over the last 3 games it's been great to see how our players respond to games against the better teams. No hiding place against these boys. Also great to get to see the better teams up close ( movement off the ball, cuteness (like Rossies making subs on our kick out and getting timely "injuries "))
Looking forward to it.

Clubs in Sligo don't do themselves any favours with promoting the intercounty games in general I find. Many clubs had full underage training the day of the u20 AI final which I found ridiculous.
I remember 4 or 5 years ago winning tickets for Galway Sligo game in Salthill and offered it and free lift around and not one taker. Maybe that said more about me........!

Thankfully the noisey neighbours have returned home and are now counting their All Stars for this year.
In club action I will have a go and predicting the 10 games in the top 2 divisions

Bunnies v S.Gaels.. Gaels
Mary's v Coolera....... Mary's
Curry v Farnans....... Curry
Tourlestrane v Calry.... Tourlestrane
Molaise v Tubbercurry ... Molaise

Coolaney v St Michaels.... Coolaney
Castleconnor v E. Harps..... Harps
Ballymote v Easkey...... Easkey
Drumcliffe v Geevagh..... Drumcliffe
St. Pats v Owenmore Gaels..... Pats

The fixtures look very straightforward so that probably means that I will get a load of them wrong. Mary's v Coolera is always difficult to predict. The rest of Div 1 appear straightforward. However you can never trust Curry.


In Div 2 the only game that I could see an upset is Castleconnor v Harps. If Castleconnor lose I can't see them avoiding relegation so they may try and ambush.

Of course it hit a nerve all wind up merchants are fairly fragile and you can't help yourself going by that latest noisy neighbours remark.

Have been on here for a decade and have come across many well informed Sligo posters, this thread on the other hand will most certainly survive without posters like you.

Did you not read my last reply to you where I told you that if you don't like what's on this forum, off you go somewhere else. I have zero interest in you as you contribute nothing.

Came in to have a look and find out this now a game attendance form and no talk of football.

All my posts are about football. I did a prediction of the 10 games that were played this weekend. Ballymote surprised me. Didn't see a win there. I wonder had Easkey a full team or were there hurlers missing. I actually predicted that Curry can't be trusted and according to WTS they were ahead by 9 at half time and finished up drawing the game . So I was spot on there.

Some big scores put up in Division 1 again this week. You'd begin to wonder was it not better to have 8 team leagues than putting 2/3 clubs through big hammerings every week?

I think we are now level on the record of 8?? I was getting worried I thought this was the week you had me, especially considering how straight forward them games should've been. I didn't do mine just because they were the same as yours but you bet me to it.
Tubbercurry and Calry are nearly already certain for the drop.
The league is hard to go by. A lot of clubs missing county players, their best club players could be travelling before championship, a lot of clubs will do enough to get by and focus on championship. We will see most full teams in the last few rounds of league i would presume when there's good points on offer and lads are coming back from county/travelling to start getting ready for the championship.

What is going on in Tubbercurry at senior? They only had 15 players and then one gets injured and has to play on. 10pts to no score at half time and 23 to 3 final score. We have over 30 players. Fair play to our lads but Its not great for Sligo football seeing situations like this.
