All-Ireland SFC Quailfiers

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

22. LONDON (no change)
The Exiles put on a good show against Cavan in round 4 of the qualifiers. Paul Coggins' outfit occupied the wooden spoon position in Division 4 at the end of the league but saved their best form for the championship and claimed the scalps of Sligo and Leitrim to qualify for a first ever Connacht SFC final appearance.

23. LONGFORD (no change)
The end, you would imagine, is nigh for Glenn Ryan's time as boss of the Midlanders. Relegated to Division 3 and beaten by Wicklow in the Leinster SFC, they won just one game all year and that was against Limerick in the qualifiers.

24. OFFALY (no change)
Emmet McDonnell was successful in securing promotion from Division 4 in this first year but the championship draws didn't do him and his side any favours and they suffered defeats at the hands of Kildare and Tyrone.

25. ANTRIM (no change)
The clubs will decide Frank Dawson's fate in the coming weeks and he would appear to be standing on shaky ground following relegation to Division 4 and championship defeats against Antrim and Louth.

26. TIPPERARY (no change)
Comprehensively outplayed by Kerry in the Munster SFC before finishing four points off the pace against Galway in the qualifiers. The Peter Creedon managed side missed out on promotion to Division 3.

27. WICKLOW (no change)
Harry Murphy's men put the disappointed of dropping down to Division 4 behind them when registering an opening championship win over Longford and put up a good fight against Meath but the year ended on a major downer when suffered a freak 0-2 to 2-21 defeat to Armagh.

28. WATERFORD (no change)
Almost pulled off a memorable qualifier victory over Galway at Pearse Stadium but just came up short by a point - 0-14 to 1-12. Niall Carew was 'gutted' afterwards but it is something to build on in 2014.

29. CLARE (no change)
The Mick O'Dwyer experiment lasted just one year. The Waterville maestro failed to wave his magic wand and the Banner County fell to a 0-10 to 3-17 qualifier defeat to Laois.

30. LEITRIM (no change)
A season that promised so much delivered so little in the end for the Barney Breen/George Dugdale side. The failure to qualify for the provincial decider has taken a good deal of polish off the FBD silverware.

31. SLIGO (no change)
Knocked out of the Connacht SFC by London. No need to elaborate any further. The Yeats County are on the look-out for a new manager following Kevin Walsh's departure.

32. CARLOW (no change)
Dr Cullen Park hosted the first ever gaelic football championship game to be staged on a Friday night but Anthony Rainbow's side crashed to a 0-12 to 3-13 loss. Westmeath dumped them out of the provincial championship.

33. NEW YORK (no change)
There is commendable work going on overseas promoting Gaelic Games and while New York are slipping in competitive terms, we need to look at the bigger picture when we review their involvement in the championship.

Looking at the rankings how could the Fermanagh manager state that the team had made progress when they are at a standstill at no.20 again?

Rankings are always extremely accurate in gaelic games, Said no one ever.

gotmilk I suggest you read near the start of this thread and the rankings were made then. So check your facts first rather given outdated facts!

You mean they haven't improved ranking over the course of a month? Yesterdays man are you educated in the slightest?

A month is not a good place to monitor progress. I would consider the fact that they have rose from 28th the previous year to 20th would suggest that they have made considerable progress. That is an increase of 25% on the previous year. Now if you were running a business Master and you made an increase of 25% in your profits in a 12 month period would you consider your business to be succesful?

And i'm fairly sure Peter stated they made progress on the previous year not in a 2 game period.

Yes Fermanagh will need the map alright as they never get anywhere unless through the back door.
