Replying To oakleafersir:  "Home again against Wexford but I think we should still go full pelt in this one but give a few players a chance to get themselves up and going for the final; I'd rotate a few players to see them in different roles and positions.
The team I would start is:
T.Mallon
SF.Quinn
B.Rodgers
N.Kennan
P.Coney
J.Rocks
C.McFaul
E.Bradley
P.Cassidy
R.Bell
S.McGuigan
E.Lynn
N.Toner
B.McCarron
C.Bradley"
McCarron is with the u20s.

About 3 definite, with 4 or 5 possible starters. 6-7 of the 8 on the bench would be first choices normally and a couple more were rested due to minor niggles. It was a pretty inexperienced Derry team, which showed in the second half when Wexford came on strong. At the same time, all the boys starting would have had reasonable amounts of game time over the past year or two - the manager has been playing a few from the past few years' successful underage teams alongside more experienced players in every game.

Hi lads, what's the craic with Emmet Bradley? Has he not been playing the last few weeks? Had him as captain of my Fantasy Football team! Disaster"!

Have no personal knowledge but asking others at Derry matches the same question, it seems that Emmet has some kind of minor muscle strain or injury of late and is being rested. He is a tremendously talented footballer whose potential has nowhere near been realised yet.

Yeah I was very impressed with him last year in the Championship against us. I had been following his progress in the League and he seemed to be bossing Div 4 until his injury. Yez would need him back and flying for the Tyrone match.

In my opinion Christopher Bradley has been the best performers in the league, sadly Emmet Bradley and Ryan Bell were cut short a few matches due to injury and were great today; them three will needed for the Tyrone game. The team in general have been great but there is still work to do.
As for championship I reckon we will really put it up to Tyrone this year but will just fall short at the end and have a great run in the back door and end up getting to the 4th round, depending on we would get from the provisional runner-ups we could have a shout on being a shock in the Super 8s.
