London Club Fixtures

Replying To WideBall1:  "There seem to be more mid-week fixtures that weekend fixtures at the moment which can't be easy on teams."
It's funny, I've found so far this year there's far more availability from players during the week than at the weekend. If only we had a couple of floodlight venues in the county.

That said, god knows how the St Anthonys boys get themselves down to London midweek. The Mcardle cup final on the Friday couldn't have been easy.

am hearing there may be more signings coming for Neasden, seem to be focusing on their attack. Will look forward to watching Clarke play as he is a class act. But would prefer to see a TCG or Fulham win the title.

that's awful cynical..

"Jamie's thinking is that his career is heading down the fashion line and London is obviously a bigger market for all that and there's bigger opportunities for himself.

"It's pot-luck really, not just that I know Jamie, but it suits both of our scenarios in that he wants to get to London and I wanted to raise the profile of Neasden Gaels."

I'd say he will stay until they get knocked out of the Senior Championship

Were two months out from the Senior Championship now and Division One seems to be in full flow, who are shaping up to challenge this year? I see Neasden made some marquee signings but their defense is questionable at best. Probably TCG and Fulham are the front runners?

Intermediate seems very much dog eat dog. Brendan's seemed to be going strong up to late but got beat by Tommy Macs at the weekend in the Murphy Cup final and CuChullains have been picking up some good wins. Joes for me are the ones to watch, left it behind them last year.

Dulwich should win the junior treble, I would be very surprised to see them not win the big one this year (finally). Clarets seem to be picking up a bit of form and Parnell's ran Harps close in the Mullarkey cup final recently, great to see in their first year at this level!

Neasden haven't finished yet with the Man City transfer style approach....

looks like Diarmaid Connolly might be available, sure they may as well sort out a handy labouring job for him with someone.

Lads, on a serious note. This transfer business has gone to the next level. Anyone reckon Neasden might have an outside chance with Mooney, Harrison and Clarke? They will easily be the 3 best players here when they arrive. I know their backs are probably not up to that level but surely they'd get 0-5 or more each off the two lads up front a game. Have other good forwards too like Doran etc.

They will have the best forward line in london by far, which in turn everyone playing them will have 13 behind the ball to close the space for them, which leaves them a long way to go to collect there own scores.
I have been told there transfer business has not finished yet so expect a few defenders to come in, sure there all just here for the football wink wink.

they are definitely now 3rd favourites in my eyes for the title, TCG and Fulham the teams to beat still, last year they had very good forwards but struggled to put the likes of Joe's, McCurtains and Brendans away. Definitely throws a hand grenade into the whole championship draw, am sure the teams that play them won't need any motivation in trying to beat them. Gavigan I would say as good as Harrison from what I have seen, Clarke though is different class, rare you get a marquee player of his standard playing in London and still in their prime.

I would say Harrison is a step above any of the forwards Fulham or TCG have. He will probably up his game more this season with the class players around him. If all these players are here for reasons other than work/London Life, the experience etc. then I wonder what encourages the powers that be at Neasden to back such activity? Surely you'd sooner get yourself a nice new Beamer?!

Or you already have the Beamer, and more money than you can spend....

A London GAA Sheikh whereby the cost of the PSG style approach is really nothing to you....

One doesn't sign for Neasden, a newly promoted senior club for the love of the club as a top inter county footballer...

Mooney is only flying over for the games, as he is still continuing working at home, oh the love for playing for neasden really stands out.
