Total revamp of the club scene needed

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

Instead of always griping why don't we admit that reducing the number of Clubs @ Senior & Intermediate has made for more competitive games at all levels. Bringing the championship to the club grounds has improved atmosphere in the earlier rounds and while this was more to do with the work being done in KBP it was a success and should not be discarded next year. The pitch in KBP is magnificent and added to the two recent County Finals and hopefully will aid our teams into the future. For next year we need to complete the Club League and Championships much earlier so that our Champions have time to enjoy their success while giving Ulster Competitions a real go. Wishing Mickey Graham all the best. There are talented footballers out there we need to do what we can to ensure the best get a chance to prove that

Do Cavan clubs show enough respect to the Ulster Club Championship?

I ask this question, because Cavan clubs have a truly abysmal record in Ulster.

I set up this thread four years ago, on the back of years of failure of Cavan teams in the provincial competition and nothing has changed.

But this is not surprising, because the standard of club football in Cavan is significantly weaker than it is in most other Ulster counties.
Are Cavan clubs contented to merely win a county title and then throw in the towel?

It's not a bit wonder that at county level, the only thing we have to show for a half a century of effort is a single provincial title 22 years ago, when the standard of football in the county is so poor.
