2014 Connacht Championship

(Oldest Posts First)

Who do we want?

I would love the sheep at the sheep pen if they get by London if they dont London in Ruislip

Galway away might not be a bad bit of craic either

We owe the rossies and london a beating

Don't London have to play every Connacht game outside of their quarter final at a Connacht venue?

Is it not Galway's turn to play London?

We played them in 2010 (start of a good championship campaign it was) so I think we'll be going over in 2015 again.

Galway currently weak

Sligo after abandoning GAA

Roscommon the usual ah well we might put up a fight for 1 qualifier after they get relegated in the NFL

Mayo on the back of another allireland appearance

London after building a team that can play championship football and create goal chances and score them too

So with hagans new panel I would take Sligo/Galway in a quarter

Roscommon/London in the semi

Mayo v leitrim final 20 year anniversary

Quarter final allireland leitrim v kildare/wexford/Longford

Semifinal allireland leitrim v Tyrone

Could be a good summer

maybe it is galways turn to come across the water, mayo go to NY would that be right?

anyway galway wont get out of ruislip too handy either

a home draw unless its against the sheep would do nicely

would have preferred the winners of galway\london but if there is one thing that might just get everyone pulling in the right direction it should be a trip to the sheep pen if its still standing by then, if a group a lads cant get motivated for a game against them then we may forget it, the embarassment of 2011 needs being put right

True die hard native blooded leitrim men grow up wanting and longing to beat roscommon

The rivalry is level par with the battle against the brits

Sean Hagan knows this and since 2005 he himself has been looking to get even with the wolly rossies

Pass the rossies we probably face mayo pass them it's a final

If not it's a 3rd round qualifier against laois Wicklow Antrim Longford Cavan or Armagh

In all honesty we'll win nothing playing Div 4, aim for 2014 is get promoted anything else is a bonus, anything less is another poor year, not a bit of difference coming mid table and then beating the Rossies, put Champo on hold until we move up the ranks....!

partly agree mousemat we need to get out of the graveyard that is division 4 but we also need a championship run too, both should go hand in hand, use the FBD to get the squad sorted for the NFL, give it a good run but lets not forget about the summer, if hagan gets the players he wants and we get that little bit of luck in div 4 and into a league final the rossies match takaes care of itself but we should have 25 lads wanting to burst a gut for the green and gold come may time, if lads arent then they shouldnt be on that panel
