Replying To kevinno.8:  "SFC G1
Tyrellspass V Athlone - Athlone +5 (Without Egan + Gonoud will struggle this year)

Shamrocks V Garrycastle - Draw (Should be the game of the weekend IMO, GCastle have momentum but Shamrock will want to prove last year wasn't a fluke, terrible away jersey out of Shamrocks, BLUE??)

St.Lomans V The Downs - St Lomans + 2 (Should have enough, however, wouldn't be surprised if The Downs run them close)

SFC G2
Kinnegad V Killucan - (Kinnegad won last night +11)

Shandonagh V Castledaly - Shandonagh +5 ("The time is now for Shandonagh", however, we've read that before!)

St.Marys V Rosemount - Rosemount +3 (Hard to see anything but a win for Rosemount after strong league, but the Bridge can and have surprised in the past)


IFC G1
Milltownpass V Milltown - Milltownpass + 2 (Should be a great game, Milltownpass are a very strong inter team and will look to go one step further than last year)

Caulry V Moate - Caulry +1 (Haven't a clue, Caurly to shade it?)

Tang V Maryland - Tang + 10 (Tang should beat them of the field! Hold Martin and McCormack and Tang should cruise)


IFC G2
Kilbeggan V St.Malachys - (St Malachys won last night +7)

Multyfarnham V Tubberclare - (Multy won last night +10)

Bunbrosna V Ballymore - Bun +2 (This game should suit Bun)"
Fairly off with the predictions there Kevinno.8"

Yeah they looked very good. Always looked like winning the game, which is more impressive when you consider that they got eaten alive on kickouts. Would not be surprised to see them taking 10 point from 10 in the group stages. After that it's harder to call as other teams could start to peak at the right time, like Shamrocks did last year.

In fairness he was the first to point out his own pitfalls.

Regardless, everyone is entitled to their opinions without anyone else belittling them.

Just start a new thread for junior football without having the need to leave petty comments

(nothing against junior championship - some interesting results, just sick of the negativity on this forum)

Just wondering what is the panic in playing the 2nd round games midweek on the 23rd 24th July. Very hard on players working and also dual players. Think it would have been ok to have midweek games towards the shake up of championship.

It's crazy really. Lads shouldn't have to take a half day from work to partake in an amateur sport. 6.45pm throw ins when you're working in Dublin is just not on. Midweek games at 1/4 final stage if needed would be preferable as you could have them in floodlit pitches Kinnegad, Lomans, Tubberclair and Athlone and have throw in at 8pm. But only if they were really stuck.

Replying To martyW:  "few surprises this weekend with wins for Maryland and Moate the biggest surprise results for me. Great wins for them over 2 of the favourites. Milltown looking good and continuing their good form in that group.

Most the senior games went as expected with the margin of victory in some games the most surprising. Great results for Tyrellspass and Shandonagh especially while I was surprised how easily Garrycastle won with Dessie sitting up in Croker while they were playing, strange I thought but dont think its the first time he's picked RTE over the club.

On initial viewing it looks like Athlone and The Downs to finish in bottom 2 of group with 2 from Rosemount, Shandonagh or Kinnegad to go up from group 2"
was in cusack saturday; marvelous conditions for both games. Shandonagh were impressive in their first outing at senior championship level; midfield and full forward line very impressive; the 2 boyle brothers, coyne with scully in midfield dominating. thought the lomans/downs game would be a lot tighter; had to pinch myself again the fact john i mahony is involved with the downs ( has his work cut out for him); loughlin carrying that team. still, i would imagine o mahony will bring his mojo so woukd not right off the downs yet

Replying To Temple56:  "I heard at the game on Saturday night that Dessie was suspended for the 1st round after picking up a red card after the semi final last year against St.Lomans"
You heard right Temple56. Dessie was not eligible to play on Saturday. I'm not sure what MartyW is on about when he implies that Dessie has previously put RTE before his club. The only games Dessie has ever missed with his club was when he has been injured, and he is now in his 22nd year playing senior championship with Garrycastle.

Well said and even if he did choose RTE He would be well entitled to. He is 40 and owes noting to his club. I'd only be sour about such a think if I was jealous. Fair play. Also not surprised t pass won they are and have always been a championship team.

SFC G1
Athlone V Shamrocks - Think Shamrocks should get their first win here
Garrycastle V The Downs - Garrycastle should get another win on the board
St.Lomans V Tyrellspass - Lomans will be too strong

SFC G2
Kinnegad V Rosemount - Winner of this should make the semi, think Rosemount should have enough
Shandonagh V Killucan - after an impressive opening win I can see Shandonagh adding another
St.Marys V Castledaly - can see this being a very tight game but Castledaly's experience may see them through

IFC G1
Milltownpass V Moate - Another tight call, big boost for Moate to win their opening game. Could be a draw here
Caulry V Tang - thought both these would have won their opening games so will be desperate to get points on the board, Tang should win here
Milltown V Maryland - Both got great opening wins, think Milltown might shade it

IFC G2
Multyfarnham V St.Malachys - Multy should get the win here
Bunbrosna V Tubberclare - Tubberclare seem to have fallen back a bit, draw
Kilbeggan V Ballymore - tight game here, Ballymore to edge it

HERE WE GO AGAIN!!!!
If you were a betting man/woman I would strongly advise to do the opposite of what I say.

SFC G1
Athlone V Shamrocks - Draw! Shamrock dealing with hangover from last year, Athlone will want to bounce back from Tpass loss.

Garrycastle V The Downs - Garrycastle standard routine. +4
St.Lomans V Tyrellspass - Lomans to shade this. +2

SFC G2
Kinnegad V Rosemount - Rosemount to win look very good all year. Kgad have couple of injuries I believe. +5

Shandonagh V Killucan - Shandonagh should pick up there 2nd win. +5

St.Marys V Castledaly - Hard to know? Dog fight in this one. Draw game.

IFC G1
Milltownpass V Moate - I still fancy Milltownpass to win this one. +2
Caulry V Tang - Tang for the win. +4
Milltown V Maryland - Maryland could push on with win other there belt. Maryland to shade it. +1

IFC G2
Multyfarnham V St.Malachys - Two very strong teams. Multy on the rise but Malachys have good experience. I feel multy have a point to prove at this level. Multy +4
Bunbrosna V Tubberclare - Bunbrosna + 2
Kilbeggan V Ballymore - Ballymore +5

Group 1 in intermediate looks very interesting after last nights results. Caulry are the only team that have not picked up a win and they will have to win 2 out of the last 3 games if they want to have any chance.
Miltown are 2/2 and look to be flying while the other 4 teams have one win each.
Any Predictions on who which 4 teams will qualify?

Can see Milltown and Tang coming out top with Maryland and Milltownpass behind them

Was in cusack park this eve killucan if they had a freetaker they would have won this game .
Lomans got a win against Tpass with heslin not missing the handy frees where Tpass
frees were hard to come by and they weren't converted . ref very poor even ruled out a very good point by Tpass maybe wouldn't have made a difference but who knows but overall lomans prob the better side with Tpass missing a lot through injuries.

Couldn't agree more, t pass down 5 of their best 6 players and put up a massive performance under the circumstances. Refs unfortunately was poor to us but we are use to it over the years.

Killucan were the better team for me last night but failed to convert their chances. shold have left the goalkeeper in the goals after he missed the first of three second half frees. . .they also definitely should have been awarded a penalty in the second half and if converted could have put them out of reach with about 15 minutes togo. Shandonagh to be fair kept plugging and got their rewards, some good long range points.
Tyrrellspass never looked likely to win against a strong Loman's outfit but in fairmess they did ask a lot of questions. If Tyrrellspass were able to convert the chances from free kicks there might have been an upset on the cards. Lomans would have struggled if Heslin wasn't there. He was the difference in the end, kicking some good points and was very instrumental in the goal scored in second half.
