Hi Fool, never mind your awful spelling yesterday, you don't seem to be able to read either as your question has been responded to. What you now need to be more concerned about is your Co Cavan Gowna team as they should be fretting at the prospect of meeting our Enniskillen Gaels team in 2 weeks time in the quarter finals of the Ulster Senior Club Championship. Mind you it will take a mighty good Gowna side to knock us out as I expect our team to give them the same hiding as we gave Belleek this afternoon. Now please don't interrupt me again with your silly questions as I'm partying here tonight. By the way, my mates here think you should keep you nose out of our affairs and I agree!

hey man u r very full of itself tonight but I would remind you that Ekn Gaels r only as good as their last game and ur assumption that they will oust the Cavan champions so easily out of the Ulster's is wishful thinking. Enjoy ur year will the new York cup as it might be a while before it's filled with the townies brew again!

I doubt if Enniskillen Gaels would be senior champions if they had to meet Kinawley in the final? In a controversial finish in the semi final Kinawley were denied that chance to become champions.

I'm so delighted for my Ekn Gaels team and it just a pity others beyond my club haven't the decency to acknowledge our club's championship success.

From what I read on this thread it is mainly used by slabbers who have a gripe against one thing or another and I bet they are from armchair critics rather than active club members. I await their response.

Here man you and eknteacher don't do your club or yourselves any favours by you attitude towards those who aren't within your townie circle. You have previously called my friend macca999 a slabber as well so how do you expect him, me and the rest of the rural club supporters to extend any praise under the circumstances?

In response to the Baffoon, what I said about your friend macca reflects what many think about him and therefore I won't retract that statement. Let me remind you that same macca refused to retract his statement about Fermanagh goalkeeping when someone challenged him so I have the same right to not to retract!

As for your reference to my club and another Gaels poster, let me spell it out, we are proud of our club and the stance we take. You may dislike that but we live in a democracy and not under a Stalin type regime.

Yes it will be a tough challenge for Gowna playing against a team on their own club pitch. You seem to have an attitude problem though for whatever reason. If that is reflective of you're club then it doesn't say much

Obviously, Ekn teacher has ignored you. However, I won't as I think it's outrageous that you can come here and make such an implied slur on my club. As an outsider from another judication, what gives you the right be so judgemental of a club you don't really know?

You remind me of our county's presumptuous macca poster who is currently in hibernation until the first mention of the Fermanagh team again, when he will emerge to make unwarranted and judgemental comments about squad members or management in a similar manner to yourself. Such comments are not helpful as they can negatively impact on those who they are addressed to.

I guess. just like macca, you won't have the courtesy to apologise when you are wrong.

It's a discussion forum.
Brewster Park is used for Club and County which i thought was strange.Brewster pitch floods a lot so that's why I asked..

He said it was cost effective to have both teams using it. Plenty of grants now for Club and County teams.

Anyway...about this weekend! Enniskillen are a good well balanced team but with no real superstars. Don't know much about Gowna other than they are in a similar boat to the gaels having won their first title in a right while. I'd imagine it'll be tight as the standard of senior clubs in Fermanagh and Cavan would be fairly similar, as seen when Roslea took on Ballinagh a few years back.

Whatever the result, can't see either team going further than the semi-final as rookies from smaller counties tend not to go too far and the standard of the other teams is simply outstanding.

Yet another slabber making predictions. For the Blah to, in essence, suggest our gallant Enniskillen Gaels senior team is nothing exceptional and is going nowhere is rather demeaning without first giving the team the opportunity to prove themselves.

It will be interesting to hear what he has to say a the Gaels progress in the Ulsters.

Any prediction that doesn't praise the Gaels seems to be a slabber prediction.... in reality, the Fermanagh club scene was much weaker this year helped by the drop in performance of DG. I would agree Enniskillen have no superstars but they do have an extremely young, quick and hungry team. The inside forward line could give many of the ulster teams problems.

As history suggests playing in ulster for the first time in many years I can see a first-round exit as we have seen with many other teams before. Saying that I am happy to see any Fermanagh team do themselves justice in Ulster.

Good luck in the first round.

You really have a chip on your shoulder by putting words into my mouth. I said they were a good team, my doubt is that they are rookies at this level (as are Gowna) and therefore a semi-final is the limit for either team. I'll stick by that prediction.

I, like many of the rest in the county, will support Fermanagh clubs as they progress in the Ulster Championship including of course the Gaels. Was very happy to see Newtown have a comprehensive win at the weekend for example. Would love nothing more than to see a Fermanagh club in another Ulster Final this year.

I don't think an Ulster Final is achievable for either Gowna or Gaels, but would happily be proven wrong.

It's a discussion forum, people make predictions and give opinions. Relax and don't get too worked up about it.

Great to see a well rounded sensible contributor making their point without the arrogance displayed by the Enniskilleners or the waffling associated with the contributions from the GalloonBaffoon (alias macca999), Turniphead or the Cavan FoolsGold...I wish both teams the best of luck tomorrow.

You're a strange bunch in Fermanagh. Posters picked out because they have a different view .

Hard luck Devenish - seemed a good battle with Castlerahan chipping a few points at the end to pull away.

Best of luck to Gaels this evening.

Fair play Gaels last night - some win from them and showed great desire twice in the game to pull it back whenever some believed it was gone. Knew it was going to be a tight game and it was tit for tat for the most of it.

Some kick from Beacom at the end to level it and great composure shown in the penalties from the team. That soccer experience within the gaels squad certainly helped big time come the spot kicks.

Likely playing the Donegal champs in the next round I think if they progress against Cargin of Antrim? If so, definitely the most winnable of the other potential semi-finalists but still will be a tough challenge.

Best of luck as they move forward.

On a side note, hope we can get Love back involved with the county again this year. Great wee player.

Terrific win by Gaels on Saturday. As has been said their skill at penalty taking is a result of their soccer skills honed by the myriad of teams and leagues in the town. Every Fermanagh club area should have a soccer team to keep players active in the GAA off season. Rural clubs could amalgamate on a geographical basis to provide competitive teams. Most clubs
have players who play for other clubs during the off season anyway so why not keep them together in their own areas and give them a greater sense of local pride in their team.

hairyhorses you know fine well that it is not compatible with the GAA ethos to promote non-Gaelic sport as it has proved to be detrimental to the Gaelic football in many respects...anyway you take on the Ulster QF between the town Gaels and village Gowna teams didn't reflect the tremendous performance of the 'non-soccer' Cavan underdogs whose authentic GAA players fought with such great passion to the the end of extra time to only lose by a lottery penalty shootout. Not a very fair way go settle the game which should really go to a replay.
