Replying To gooch13:  "No surprises atall not up to these standard of teams poor Ollie will be crying in his sleep tonight..."
Good man Gooch no tears last night. At least Louth put in a performance not like last year against Tipp and two years ago against Tyrone. No more Wee County action till January. Roll on July 7th till the football championship starts.

Ah disappointing end to the year , a win in Derry would have been a great boost to the group but unfortunately we have been found out. It's massively obvious that when Louth come up against better quality opposition our defence is not fit for purpose. The scorelines we have conceded in 2015/16 against a div3 or div2 sides has been huge. That puts massive pressure to score hugely to win. Today we got 16 points last Sunday the same but still well enough beaten on both occasions.
The 6 day turnaround didn't beat us, neither did Barry mcguigan with some of his poor decisions.
We need to build on this year and have a good tilt at div3 next year. That's how we will improve. Div1 & 2 sides are miles above the Div3/4.

Replying To loyal82royal:  "Quit your whinging, ye sound pathetic. Plenty of teams in recent years have had a 6 day turnaround, ye are just complaining because you cant watch the Ireland game. Well you guys can watch all the soccer you want now because what else will you be watching?"
Loyal82Royal pipe down like a good little chap. There is plenty of GAA action to keep us going for the next couple of months. Your username would not be out of place in an orange order march. Here is a quiz question for you? How many Meath men were capped by the Republic of Ireland?

It was a very pleasant drive to Dungiven yesterday.
The facilities in Owenbeg are superb. The big thing it has over Darver is the stand that can hold about 2,000.
We were in the game until the last few minutes. After Decko's point we were just one down and had genuine hope.it was not to be. There was no real leaders there with the experience to see us through. No subs to come on without spoiling the juniors. Jim Mac had to be brought back on - had he an injury - for Ryan Burns.
Our tactics were horribly wrong :-
-two forwards up covered by four backs
- six or seven players in line and nobody running forward when we got possession
-no discipline
-Beven Duffy left on line for 40+ minutes when we losing middlle
-etc etc
When will we learn

I see the losers on Dublin/Meath will have six days to prepare for the next round of the qualifiers.
They might even get the pleasure of going to Owenbeg.
Leinster counties are at a serious disadvantage in this current arrangement.

Carlow v Clare

It's so sad to be out of the champo on June 18th. Again we were in with a shout near the end , maybe tactically we were left 2nd best and no leaders and a lack of 1 or 2 good subs to bring fresh legs on when we needed them. However things do look up with the current crop and with Kelly in charge I expect better things to come. A big thanks to the lads for a great league run and final in Croke park and a champo win. What's the story with gally and judge?

Lack of leadership a big problem alright and this was obvious in both the Meath game and yesterday. Our lack of a fielder in midfield another big problem, when Derry realised this and pushed up on our short kick outs we were lost. Overall we haven't really come on as a team, many of the lads playing last night aren't up to intercounty standard and that's not to take away from the effort put in but it is the truth. Derry set up very defensively and we didn't know how to get through them, on many occasions we actually had the ball taken clean off us. Yesterday also showed how little faith Kelly has in his bench when he took Jim Mc off only to bring him back on again later, it would be hard for a sub to stay on a panel after that. Overall I was glad to see a bit of fight in the team but like the Meath game the result always seem inevitable.

On the Sunday Game last night Jarlath Burns tried to justify the six day turnaround for round 1 of section 1A of the qualifiers. He was inclined to blame the County Boards and said they did it in the interest of club players. A load of BS. In Louth we had two rounds of the club leagues without county men. The problem lies with Central Council and/or Leinster Council for not arranging fixtures that give every county an equal chance. It was clear in Dungiven in the last quarter that Louth were suffering from the previous Sunday's exertions while Derry were much fresher.
There is a simple solution. Section 1A should comprise of:-
Losers of first round in Leinster(3)
Loser of preliminary round in Ulster(1)
Losers First round in Connacht (2)
Losers of first round in Munster(2)
In 2016 we would have had Carlow,Wicklow,Longford,Antrim,Leitrim,London,Waterford and Limerick
All these counties were known well in advance of last week-end.
Section IB would be :-
Losers of quarters finals in Leinster (4)
Losers of quarter finals in Ulster (4)
All of these counties were known by 12th June this year and round 1B is scheduled for 25th June.

Nobody could have complaints.
Similar logic could apply for Round 2

Jarlath would not have to make fake excuses if logic was used. And we would be looking forward to a game next Saturday and maybe a few more. Instead we have to wait for a Byrne Cup game on New Years Day. Probably in Darver and snowing. Bring your big cap

Jarlath is speaking rubbish,also no club games in Meath either so he needs to get his facts right before coming out with comments as such.

Dont mind Burns he has to tow the CC line, utter Bs coming from him last night on the sunday game. The whole back door system while good in essence needs to be cleaned up regarding the fixtures. In louth we are always nearly our 1st in Leinster and then we end up waiting 1 month for our next game so any momentum we had built up was gone. Terrible to be out so early but at least the usual suspects can head off now knowing the job is done and we are out.

Cmon Louth juniors.
