They'll show up to training and instruct the players on what to do like any other manager would. Anyone can talk a great talk. And I don't know what 'thowing much' means either."
There is no point discussing this with you except there is a huge difference between the experience of a recent Leitrim player anf someone like Andy Moran and Michael Sloan.
There are also two outstanding Leitrim players as part of the team.
Time to move on!!

They is 2 retired Leitrim players onboard and a man that won an all-Ireland u20 also. So you have experience you have 2 ex Leitrim footballers and also footballer of the year thrown into the mix as well. So it must be a dream management team for you when you actually have a think about it

Oh well if he was joining us to play I'd say that. But he has zero management experience at that level. But you don't seem to be clocking that at all so best to lie down and dwell about it and it might click eventually

It isn't a dream management. Haven't I been questioning the logic of it. Keep up please!

Big weekend!

Who ye all got? Still hard to look passed Mohill and it will take an almighty performance to beat them. If and it's a big if but if SOH can do a job on Beirne they go a long way in beating them.

Still sticking with my original pick, Mohill to make it 2 in a row.

I too said Mohill would be the team to win but I'm starting to doubt myself a bit ... Ballinamore will be well up for this... I think they could pull a shock out of the bag... I'm sure Paul Prior will have filled in the boys on what he thought of Mohill. It's going to be a great final... am looking forward to seeing it on TG4.

Think Mohill will win still.

Suits Ballinamore down to the ground though coming in as underdogs and not having the huge furore like they had around the 2019 final.

If Beirne is stopped though, I don't see how Mohill win, nobody bar maybe Oisin Madden was willing to step up besides Beirne in the semi final and he won't win you a game on his own from the half back line.

Thing is, I don't see who from SOH has a chance of stopping Beirne.

What's the logic?

Wayne McKeown should be tasked to man mark Keith berine and try and get him defending. E.g philly McMahon on Colm Copper a few years ago. Berine is a gifted footballer and the best forward in the county by a distance. By a mile the best 2 teams in the county. If SOH don't believe there own hype they have a serious chance of winning this. I genuinely believe this game on TG4 is huge and Twitter will be full of praise for the standard of club football in the county. Best of luck to both teams. Let's hope it excites the incoming county manager also

I mean you know nothing about Leitrim football you have nothing positive to say. You are just a sad individual with nothing better to be at.

Correct, or are you a wind up merchant from another county?

Fair play to you for casting aspersions because I have different opinions. Would I be sad if I agreed with you? Of course not. Grow up and get used to robust debate baby

Oh because I disagree with you I'm a wind up merchant? And backing up someone who called me a sad individual? Brave of you. Will I agree with everything you say from now on!? Will that feed your ego?

The fact of the matter lads is nobody here knows whats going to happen. The pro-Moran camp could be right and he could be the 2nd coming of John O Mahony, marmalade could be right and Moran might not know his **** from his elbow. Only thing I'll say is that if it gets buy in from the players, its good for a start given the issues with lads not wanting to commit over past few years.

The fact is regardless of who came in we wouldn't be able to say, hopefully proposal B goes through and we can get a proper look at the team over a solid run of games and make a good call then as to how things are going.

If not then best case scenario is that we are competitive in Div 4 and pushing Cavan and Tipp to the pin of their collar in the table and give us room to grow into a proper push for promotion the following year.

Having a full season regardless of structure after the past 2 years can't do any harm anyway.

You'd think someone with 649 posts on here would know where to find details of gaa fixtures in Leitrim. https://www.leitrimgaa.ie/fixtures-next-10-days/

I managed that part by myself. Now if you could just point me to the specific sub-section that informs the general public as to whom would be 'ar an feadóg' then I'd be sorted.
But seeing as a courteous poster has answered my query, your "witty" assistance is no longer required.
You may now re-examine your 6 posts (none of which I've seen) and deem yourself an internet legend.

Hopefully for the long term viability of Leitrim club football Ballinamore get over the line and win the County final this weekend. It would be a great result for the County team also.
