(Oldest Posts First)

Who does everyone fancy for the league and relegation this year? Kilcoo hard to look past, as will Burren and Bryansford. Under Dawson they could become a decent side and challenge! Can see Liatram struggling as usual as will the two newly promoted teams a although both showed well in the opening games! Wonder if the town can rekindle there spark they showed early last year? Who knows but should make for interesting viewing anyway! Thank god it's back!

Can see Loughinisland going down. They were down there at the end of last season, and they will be down there again

Annaclone didn't start off too well against a Glenn team who had an upper hand with their manager taking Annaclone the year before, this proved to be the difference in that game. Now Annaclone have seemed to have got a real grip of the league after their monstrous display on Monday night against a favoured Ballyholland side. The difference that Annaclone have compared to other teams in the league is the versatility of their starting 15. An example of this is their number 9 who I believe is only 20, who having started off in midfield was then swiftly moved into the half back line which ended with him scoring a point from an almost impossible angle which had a severe impact on the success of the team.

Don't know were you get your info blackspots but Glenn have been managed by the same man since 2009 when they won the junior championship with the exception of 2011 when they tried a outside man for 1 year so its impossible he managed Annaclone last year

Tony Bagnall was part of Annaclone setup last year and he is now part of the Glenn setup this year

Splitting hairs I know but the post stated Tony was Glenn manager just stating the facts he is not Glenn manager

Seen a number of teams so far this year really impressed by the bridge and bryansford but in particular the bridge a faints the town they could have and should have hammered them and the score line didn't really show how dominant they where! On top of this they have beaten Burren aswell after only 3 games my favourites for championship! Bryansford started very brightly under new management and Dawson should do very well with a bryansford team that under achieved last year. Kilcoo started as they normally do in the league slowly and building to peak in the championship! But they really looked flat against the town in a great team performance from the town that night getting there man marking right with kilcoo a big men not performing at all. So far hard to say who will go down there will be the usual suspects down there as always
