I also have a question. What club are you affiliated to?

I would like to see our lads use the mark a bit more in the forward line. It could mean an extra few points as opposed to running into dead ends. Save our legs too.

Replying To rorysboys:  "You won't name players cause you don't know anybody. The best forward in club football in Donegal and a st eunan player. Name them hope it's not like your last list where I think off my head two of them are struggling to make there own club team. Hope your all set for clones marty. I hear all the keyboard warriors are being designated a certain section of the Gerry Arthur so the Donegal support willbe well boosted.."
Nice to see Rory, being the Number #1 warrior that u are and are so well connected to Donegal management that u have the power to designate seats to those of us on here with a dissenting opinion! Guess you'll be on the field holding Bonners clipboard with the game plan! We should be able to pick u out ok, then again that will not happen as there is no game plan!Let me give u a heads up or maybe u don't have to be told why don't u tell us how the 'search' for Bonners next coaching job is going. The Meath job should be appealing, least if Bonner got that he'd be closer to Croke Park.

You still have plenty time to criticise bonner after every defeat but remain silent when we win. You were probably the first poster on after the Ulster final. Says it all. My definition of a real supporter is someone who follows there team through thick and thin. We'll see who the real supporters are this Sunday . This team deserves support must be annoying for them to see us been outnumbered in every game we play. It's about time we came out and supported them ."
A fickle supporter is like yourself "so blind you cannot see".

I dont really care whether you think i am a real supporter or not. I respect a lot of posters on here, but your definitely not one of them. I would say you never played the game, and would back Bonner even if he dragged us to Div 4.
You never hear criticism towards players from me, as i believe we have a very talented and committed bunch.
Its sad to see Donegal supporter's hope we get beat against armagh, as no matter who is in charge we should support the player's who are representing Donegal gaa.
But i can understand where they are coming from, there tired of poor management and dont want to see this team get humiliated against a kerry or Dublin.
I believe we need to get to croke park for our players to experience the occasion, whether we won or lose, we should experience it every year, thats how you know where you are and know where you need to be to compete.
So i for one will be hoping for a good performance and hopefully a victory.
I also believe whatever happens, this should be management's last year unless by some miracle we won the all Ireland. Its clear that the team needs new ideas and a new voice and lease of life.

Do you get your choice of seats with season tickets now or you just assigned seats?

Why are yous all so fickle today. Yous keep responding to posts I put up. All I'm saying is if you don't go to games your not supporters. Don't see why I get berated for that, the truth hurts is it. Derry beat us after extra time and there touted as having a chance of an all Ireland and we have one fool hoping we get beat Sunday in case we get to the quarter finals and get hammered.. come out and support your county and less of the bickering. A lot of glenties supporters having there opinion today it can't be easy the day after you lose an all Ireland, but need to take it out on me.

The perfect example of what Anthony Molloy and mick Mc grath we're on about. The one and only number 1 keyboard warrior mr lowball. What a man did you ever kick a ball lad.

That doesn't make much sense man. I can't go to the game this weekend because I have to be in Galway for a family function. But you can rest assured that I will be slipping away to watch the game somewhere, even if it means I am in the doghouse for it!

100% correct - this poster has completely lost it

He should take some time away as allowing people to have opinions doesn't seem to suit him

This thread has gone to the dogs. It should be retitled "Rory responds".

Must have more free time now that the helicopter drop is over.

No problem lockjaw . One of best posters fair as they come. I know some people can't make some games it's understandable. It's the ones with an opinion who never go to games. Big difference

who exactly is running GAA Team in Donegal, is it the County board or Bonner or Rochford, to me it lookd like the County Board have a big say on things, but once a game starts it looks like Murphy calls all the shots with a little help from Ryan McHugh.

Am I not allowed an opinion. Just because I don't agree with most people on here. Doesn't make me an idiot. I seen some of your opinions a few years ago. If I m losing the plot you beat me to it lad.

As the Americans say. Opinions are like *** holes. Everyone got one. If you cannot take on board other people's differing Opinions it says more about you lad

Good lad for informing me that it's over, I couldn't have win or else I'd be getting a phone call. Ah well I don't mind giving money to gaa clubs. What kind of game are you expecting Sunday. Will we go for the jugular and put our greatest ever player in at full forward.. I would start Hugh Mc fadden

Excellent post. Sums up how I feel also. Its very frustrating at present and before I get berated I go to all games. I don't know why I state that cause it doesn't make me any more than a supporter than those who can't get to the games. I don't get to dictate to anyone else who and what they support I'm life.
I was thinking back to the 2019 kerry game. One of the best games of football I was at. (Bar dublin 2014 and Kildare 2011).
What happened since then that we lost faith in those same lads to develop and drive on. If we were as good as kerry then why have we gone backwards.
Only players of the top of my head that left panel since then are paddy mc grath, Frank was a sub and mc neillis?.
Another 3 years development of our young lads I'm 2019 doesn't seem to be evident. Which is sad

You asked me in my last post not to respond to you.

I wasn't talking to you here so don't feel the need to respond.

I hope we keep Murphy as close to goal (ours that is) as possible. Armagh having an outfield player in goals are more suspect than most at the back.

Who would you drop to take Hugh in? I'd be taking Thompson in for Brennan.
