Not the worst draw, but away again!
No definitely not, the away trips are getting a bit crazy. Last one being in 2015 v Donegal, we must be the only team that hasn't had a home Ulster tie in 5 years (and counting now).
Derry seem to have fallen greatly in last number of years but should still be a threat.
Suppose draw looks favourable now, come May though they could look like the favourites (like us with Down in 2017).
Hopefully we can get through and the carrot of taking on Donegal or Tyrone.
After they way we beat Monaghan last year in Clones, should have beat Cavan first time round and gave Mayo a game.
Shouldn't fear anything but a long time between now and then.
Any other words on returners or new members of the panel?
Charlie, Donaghy, Clarke returning?
Could have been worse. Could have been better
Do they know the Athletic Grounds have been rebuilt?
This is a tough draw. Gallagher just in with Derry who had bottomed out and will now start to rise again. He will set them up defensively in a structure we find hard to break down, Derry also have better quality players to transition from defence to attack than Fermanagh had. By the time we play them I expect them to be promoted to Division 2 again. So this is very interesting. Tough, winnable and also a potential banana skin.
Gallagher will have them set up with 100 men behind the ball, game probably finish 7-6. Will be a dog fight.
Horrible draw...away, far away, to a ground where there is no life and no atmosphere against a team that is now managed by the Black death of football - Rory Gallagher...A brutal game in store. Whatever the outcome I think this will be one to forget.
Donegal have be favourites to win ulster next year again,2010 was the last time we played derry in Celtic Park in the championship which we won,played them in the league there which was draw not sure what year
Wow, that's some draw. I'm away off now to watch my favourite Australian soap opera Away and Away.
I wonder if it be played on a Saturday or Sunday
It looks like we’re doing a tour of Ulster at this stage.
Don’t know what will happen when we have to go to Antrim though.
Ex Down player & Manager Eammon Burns passed away today RIP
Desperately sad news. Still a young man
Very sad news.
Sincere condolences. We are one in sport!
Sorry to hear the sad news about Eammon may he rest in peace.
lets talk about what players you would want to get a county call up after this years championship..(nearly over so may as well get the ball rolling)
Conor McGivern - Ballymacnab
Micael McKenna - Grange
Cathal McKenna - Grange
Conor McNally - Derrynoose
These lads have all impressed me, anyone else?
Ciaran Mackin Shanes
Judge from Tones.
McGeart Collegeland (was he on panel before?)
Turbitt from Clann Eireann
Although I have only seen him against Ballymacnab I thought Liam Doyle has a right kick on him but dont think he is a complete player.
